Outfit of the Week | Tartan Plus Fur


               Hello all my beautiful friends! Do you fast? I am doing that 21-day fast with my church. Every year we choose to fast something that we love. Last year was pasta for me. But this year is meat. Today hubby and I went to ihop  and I almost ate the bacon. Thank God the holy spirit was there to remind me :) I have 15 more days to go. It gets easier, believe me!
I swear I was not trying to be America's next top model in the last picture. I told my son to just point and shoot, but he found it amusing to play with the zoom button. If you've ever wondered what I look like when I am mad, just skip to the last picture. LOL! We are still trying to figure out the new camera. I will have to try different settings until I get it right. It is so much easier to just use my iPhone.
              Anyway, I decided to play with plaid. Or is it tartan? Well, it depends on where you are reading the blog from :) Winter doesn't mean you have to put your summer and fall clothes away.  You can layer up pieces to keep you warm. I paired my tartan skirt with this blue shirt from Apparel and Bags. To keep the legs warm and create a contrast, I used black leggings and boots. And that fur vest from my sister is the gift that keeps on giving. It gives each outfit their unique flare.  I wore it here last year with black pants.




My fierce look. Haha!

Enjoy your weekend, love!

  2. Hey darling, our posts this week do have some similarities. I can't wait till you read it on saturday. I love your plaid skirt and the fur vest, mmmm I can tell it keeps giving. Lovely look, very preppy. I do fast although it's been a minute since I last did. I guess the older I get the harder it becomes. By the way I love your fierce look, ;).

  4. Hello lovely, you look stunning, love the skirt!! And of course the tartan ;) Looks like the Flower of Scotland tartan, but I'd have to see the tartan pattern closer to know for sure. But, the colours look perfect on you :) Posing posing, you have to do something to make pictures more fun sometimes, haha. Especially in winter time.I hope you have a wonderful weekend my dear xx

  8. I like the fierce look, you go! So much to learn about my camera still, I'm scared to do anything with it. Playing with the settings is fun too, but I have so much to learn myself. Love plaid and I love the look!

  14. Your fierce look is adorable. Your son would have thought you were giving him love eyes lol. I do fast sometimes but not as much now as I used to back in Africa. Bless you! The Holy Spirit is always there to remind us and guide our path.

  20. It's a beautiful combination and I totally relate with that last shot/pose because my kids (my amazing photographers) play the same trick too.

    Great Post.
