Chunky Knit Sweater

I have been searching for an affordable chunky knit sweater for so long!  I came across this one and since it was on sale I knew it had to be mine!  I feel like a Barbie doll in this pink and these sleeves, well don’t they just make you smile?!!!!  It comes in three colors, so I  ordered the pink one for myself, but the red (oh the red) and tan one are equally fabulous!  It is so cozy and warm, perfect for these cold Texas temps!  (um 27 for the low in South Texas, say what?!!!!)  You can wear it long with leggings or scrunch it up a bit with jeans.  And check out the affordable dupes for the metallic Gucci loafers! Yep, they are so fab and comfy too, so there’s that!  Add the white sunnies, ripped jeans and loafers and I am off for a day of hot coco and shopping!

I just love sharing my favorite pieces with you and hope you enjoy this post.  I would love to hear from you about what you like (or don’t like) or what you would like to know more about.  As always, thank you so much for stopping by.





That’s Life

This MacKenzie dress is one of my favorites and will be for years to come!  It  is available here (runs large, size down)  If you know me you know I love this jewelry so so so much so I linked it all below



2017 sure had its highs and its lows. While there was so much heartache and grief this year, I know I have so much to be thankful for.  What I have learned is that THAT’S LIFE.  The ups and downs, the smiles and the tears, the joy and the sorrow, is all just a part of life. We can’t avoid any of it.  It comes and it goes. Life is going to be a ride.  Not a single person has all the good and none of the bad.  With every new day we can choose how to face our challenges.  I am not a resolution kind of girl.  Sooooo, instead I will work to become stronger in every possible way this year.  I hope to stretch and see who I can become and to embrace all the life possible.  The goal is to be fearless (easier said than done)  in searching for this strength of heart, soul, body and mind.  As you may have figured out by now, I am no ace in the tech department but I am determined to keep trying and learning more every day.  And if you know resources that could help PLEASE send them my way!  I also received a camera for Christmas and will try my best to master new angles and settings AND  to use a tripod and remote (egads is this possible?)  Again, HELP!!!   I have so enjoyed being part of this blogging community especially as an over 50 blogger!!!   It has been one of my biggest highs to see brands recognizing that over 50 is something to celebrate and not a time of a downward spiral to dowdy and sad.  We are an emerging demographic that is being seen and celebrated and to me that is so exciting!!! I cannot wait to see what the new year will bring on this front.

I thank all of you for being on this journey with me. Your kindness and support means more to me than I can say.
