the old nursery rhyme sprang to mind this morning “it’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring.” what is it about a gray day that makes a long afternoon nap appealing? the skies have been gray the past day or two in georgia. typically, when that happens, i’ll reach for a pop of color to brighten my mood. today, i reached for the comfiest gray sweatshirt and black track pants limited sizes similar here from ann taylor. sometimes comfort trumps all. right?! this could be my new uniform as it’s the perfect sporty chic outfit. it’s dressy enough to take me out to lunch or lounge at home. leopard sneakers would look adorable with this ootd. instead, i choose pointy-toed flats similar here to elevate the look.
but i did reach for a cheerful gingham print to balance this ootd. this raincoat is last season from talbots. check out this polka dot raincoat. it’s adorable! spring will be here before you know it and we all know what happens in april. it’s funny, but lately, i’ve noticed that stores don’t carry the products i need when i need them. does that happen to you? it seems i’m always a month or two behind. yes, i’m the one looking for halloween items when christmas is splashed everywhere… this year i’m determined to stay on top of inventory even if it means i’m shopping several months ahead of time.

I have been follow you for awhile now and just love your style!! This is so me when I am home and just doing little things around the house! Love the look!!
hi susan! thanks so much for stopping by. this outfit is a keeper. it’s comfortable and cute which is always a win/win.
That sweater w the tie sleeves is cool!
the best part about this sweater/sweatshirt is how comfortable it is! the ties on the sleeve give it a little extra perk.
Love your blog and especially the way you put outfits together. I’m in Australia and I heard a report on our news yesterday that a British study came up with an age when a person should stop wearing denim—53!!!!!! I’m 63 and have no intention of eradicating denim from my wardrobe. It is a firm staple in my closet and I know you share the same view as myself. Keep up the great blog and videos. Although I can’t access the same designers as you I still get an abundance of inspiration from you! Betsy (I’m a former American) from Brisbane Australia
don’t you just fall down laughing when reports like this come out?! i always wonder who puts this study together in the first place? ha! you’ve got it right, betsy, denim is a keeper for the rest of our lives. hands down it is one of the most practical and versatile items in our closet. thanks for stopping by! i’m so happy to hear you are finding inspiration. that’s what the blog is all about.
Please talk about your fabulous hairstyle!
hi deb! i think i will put together a hair tutorial on YouTube. this is just my pixie cut pushed back. i have thick wavy hair so this style is easy to do with the help of a few hair products. stay tuned.
Nice day to get that gingham out–it fits the outfit perfectly. It got grey here today and I could tell from the wind a front must be coming through. I admit I stayed comfy inside for the most part. Enjoy Tuesday!
thanks, sue! stay warm and cozy inside. lately, this weather has been a roller coaster ride. we just have to hang tight.
