A Two For One Post
How about a two for one post today? I'm sharing some ideas for accessorizing your outfits and, just for good measure, we'll take a peek at my Winter decor. And, there's no extra cost to you....lol! I must tell you that I love, love, love this thrifted dress. You've seen it on the blog before, but styled differently.
Remember this photo? Notice how today's post shows a totally different look using different accessories. Nothing wrong with the jacket, but it's fun to try other looks.
This long style dress is still just as warm and cozy, but looks great with the addition of a thin belt, which defines my waist, and a scarf wrapped and tied at the neck. The turtleneck sleeves show below the 3/4 length dress sleeves and tie the black accents together. My black Skecher booties complete the look. To me, using these accessories give the dress a more polished look than the previous way I styled it.
With the arctic zone temperatures we have been having this was the perfect outfit for today! The addition of leggings under the long dress help with warmth, also. One reason I enjoy wearing longer length dresses and skirts in the winter is because you can wear leggings and they don't show. Shop your closet to see how you might use belts, scarves, booties and even turtlenecks to change the look of a favorite dress. Let me know if you try something different, OK? Now, let's look at some Winter decor!
Winter Decor In The Living Room and Foyer
I've written before about how sad I always feel when it is time to put away the Christmas decorations. One way I combat this is by switching to what I call Winter decor. Typically, this means lots of snowmen everywhere. I still have those, but this year I caught some half price sales on a blue tree with white lights and a white fiber optic tree. Both are perfect for my living room Winter decor table! I have snowmen surrounding them and a "Let it Snow" sign between the trees. I enjoy still having a corner of light in the living room, but don't feel like I've left out Christmas decorations. This picture doesn't do justice to the beautiful changing colors on the white fiber optic tree!
And, here are my happy Snowmen on the foyer table. I couldn't have Winter decor without them!
This lovely sled is a new addition to my Winter decor this year. Yes, I cleaned out and donated lots of unused Christmas decorations and then bought just a "few" new things to use for Winter. Sigh...I have good intentions of making space, but, hey, this sled and those trees were calling to me! (wink)
Remember to let me know what you think about accessorizing your outfits. And, if you are decorating for Winter. And...anything else you want to share! Your comments make me smile.
Until Next Time,
