Now that daylight savings time has started, I feel like spring needs to be here! Thankfully the grey weather has stopped, and we finally have some sunshine in the sky! Despite the sun, the temperatures are still hovering in the 40’s and 50’s. This means we still need to wear warm clothing; so not spring-like! Ugh!
I have decided that I am done with booties! I have been wearing them since September and I feel like it’s time to lighten my footwear. Despite the 40 degree temperatures, I wore these comfy snakeskin sandals the other day. Since I was wearing jeans and long sleeves, I decided sandals would be OK. I won’t tell you how cold my toes were. We can pretend my freezing toes didn’t happen. haha
These snakeskin sandals turned out to be surprisingly comfortable! They have a Velcro fastener at the ankle, which makes them easy to take off in the car for driving; I don’t drive in heels. They are also comfy and easy to walk in. If my toes weren’t cold, I would have walked all over town in them!
I have been clinging to my jeans from the fall season. This spring 2019 season, the denim styles are a throwback to the 1980s and 1990s. I am not thrilled about acid wash, high waisted mom jeans, or cropped flares. None of these styles are very flattering when you have curves; so I will continue my spring denim search and let you know when I find a flattering cut! In the meantime, you will find me in my jeans from last season. Flip hair-don’t care. haha

What are your thoughts on the jeans this season? Do you like the silhouettes, or are you in my boat?

I am a sucker for a faux fur coat! When I spotted this grey faux fur coat, I knew I needed to add it to my coat collection. It’s ultra soft, and super cozy! When the weather cools down, I gravitate towards anything soft, cozy, and warm! Love!
Grey is such an easy color to wear; it’s the perfect alternate to black when black feels a bit too dark and heavy. I’m looking forward to wearing this coat throughout the winter, and in February at fashion week in New York! This coat will be fun to wear throughout the winter season. It will pair well over dresses, with jeans, and with holiday attire; it’s quite versatile!
My daughter took these photos over the weekend when it was cold and foggy outside. This coat was perfect to cut the chill, and keep me warm! We stopped in at 85C in Cupertino and enjoyed sweet breads before heading out to run errands. Have you tried 85C? They have such yummy sweet and savory baked breads and pastries. I love stopping in there, and enjoying a treat! If you have a location near you, I highly recommend stopping in, you will love it!
