2 Winter Outfits On A Budget
Happy Thursday everyone! Hope everyone is doing wonderful, this post is going to be a little quick and here’s why…
Wow, what a busy day I had yesterday! All plans went South instantly! I woke up to my phone ringing and found out my mother had fallen and hurt her shoulder. Off I went to get her and in the ER we sat for half of a day, thankfully she did not break anything. She did tear her rotator cuff so there were errands to run for her so she could be at home and have everything she needed. We stayed busy with her most of the day, but thankfully I had a few outfits I posted on Pinterest to share with you girls today.
I have shown a few sherpa jackets in a few try-ons and loved them, but I wanted to share the Teddy Bear Jacket in taupe that I actually have. I found this one at Forever 21 and fell in love. It does run a little large, but it’s supposed to be an oversized jacket. If you want it to fit snuggly, size down. This comes in a pretty light lavender also and right now it’s 31% off! See it here. If you like the cognac color, I found a really nice one here.
I paired it with Rockstar jeans and my favorite taupe booties from DSW. The fedora hat comes in several colors and very affordable. Plus hats are trending now and they make a nice accessory to put a little ump in your outfit. I am also carrying a Transport Bag that I carry my MacBook in and all my necessities.

Home Decor You’ve Been Asking About
I’ve been asked about some of the decor in my house since I have been taking a few pictures inside. So I decided to link all that I could find it the carousel below if you wanted to browse. All these items are from Amazon. The candlesticks that are white on the table were bronze in color, but I painted them with this whitewash paint then wiped it off in some areas to give it some “wear and tear”.
Casual Winter/ Holiday Outfit
I love wearing black and red during the holidays and wasted no time in breaking these new jeans in from Old Navy. Girls, if I don’t like an item I will tell you and if I love an item I’m going to tell you too! These Sateen Rockstar jeans feel so good on, they are super stretchy and a perfect pant for Christmas. I am wearing a Time and Tru black turtleneck and styled it with a long black cardigan/duster to dress it up a little. **Pair these red jeans with a striped shirt and a chambray buttondown with sneakers for a cute casual look. Add a black or mustard vest for a little more zing!
When we went out to eat I was wearing my Sam Edelman Kinzey boots, these are super hard to find and I was surprised these are still on Amazon. These have a heel that is 1-1/2 inch and these come in multiple colors. Mine are the black suede and I love them! A perfect black bootie to style with jeans or slacks, especially to wer to work! Outfit Details // Cardigan // Turtleneck Sweater // Red Jeans // Fur Mules // Black Sam Edelman Booties
I know some of you are not a fan of the fur mules, but I absolutely love these shoes! They are super cute with jeans and a lot of girls are wearing these with the faux leather leggings and a denim jacket. They are TTS, they fit a little snug when you first try them on, but the more you wear them during the day they fit normal. If you are looking for a shoe that will keep your feet warm around the house – these are awesome! I use these for slippers a lot since I am in and out of the house with the dogs so much.

Raegan and I are going to check on Mom, do some of her chores for her and probably bring her lunch as an extra surprise. At 78 years old, I’m sure she is hurting more than she is letting on. Barry and Chase yore their rotator cuffs within weeks of each other and I know the pain both of them were in. Ouch! Say a little prayer for Mom if you will! Have a great day and thanks for stopping by the blog! XOXO

Oh Beverly… So glad your Mom was able to get to the phone and call you.You are going to be busy for the next few weeks while she heals. I think you said you are located pretty close so you don’t have to drive to far to check on her. The sherpa jackets are really a big craze in any store you walk into! I love the outfit with red pants and black sweater and top. Looks casual but yet dressy!! I’m heading out this morning to take my mom to a dr. appt. two hours away so I best keep moving. Prayers for your Mom for a speedy recovery.
So sorry to hear about your mom! I prayed for her just now and will continue to. Please keep us updated on her progress. I love the Teddy Bear Jackets but with 3 dogs and 4 cats I am afraid that it would get covered in pet hair and be a nightmare to get it thoroughly cleaned. Today I will be helping my mother in law (who lives with us) to go through some totes of pictures, nick nacks and an assortment of memorabilia. She has had these totes stacked up in her room since we moved here with the promise that she will go through them but it hasn’t happened. So at some point today we will finish this task. Hope your day is a good one!
Oh my!! Looks like me and Sandy are staying busy with the moms and moms-in-law too❤️❤️ Good luck with all that organization and thanks so much for the prayers!! We are believing for a healing!! Quickly!!
Thanks Sandy!! Yes, she doesn’t live too far- so I can run over to fix her hair, twist the cap off her drinks lol, and anything else she needs. This is one time I’m glad I don’t work outside the home. Bless her heart ❤️ Have a good day and the red and black is an awesome outfit!! I love the pants!!
