I know a cold shoulder turtleneck is an oxymoron but I can’t help but like the look. Some of you have asked if you get cold?
The answer is sort of. I wore this to dinner Saturday night and the restaurant was chilly. Wayne asked if I was cold and I said “a little” but I laughed and said, “I don’t want to tell my readers who said the cold shoulder sweater doesn’t make sense.” Haha!
Thankfully, I had my light black coat and I wore it outside and I was fine. After dinner we went to the mall and I didn’t need my coat. So there you go! I’m a sucker for a trend and I’ll suffer through it. 🙂
I get asked a lot about how to wear booties and I personally don’t think there’s a right or wrong way. I think it depends on the pant you’re wearing and the style of the bootie. This wouldn’t have looked right to cuff these pants so I wore them over the black bootie.
Accessory Concierge has some unique bracelets but this one is my favorite and I love wearing it during the winter season.
My black velvet pants are from Loft and they are a great pant. I feel like these will sell out quickly because they have great reviews and I have seen other bloggers wearing them. (Loft is having a flash sale today!)

Beauty For the Heart~~I have shared before that my Mom wrote for our local newspaper. She was the contributing food editor. She kept several copies of all the articles she wrote and put them in a binder for me and for my sister and I think she gave her sister’s one too.
Anyway, this time of year I love to get it out and look at the recipes she shared. Mom always added a Food For Thought at the end of her article (it was similar to my Beauty For the Heart).
She shared this poem as Food for Thought:
Recipe For Life
1 cup of good thoughts
1 cup of kind deeds
1 cup of consideration for others
3 cups of forgiveness
2 cups of well-beaten faults
Mix thoroughly and add tears of joy, sorrow, and sympathy for others. Fold in 4 cups of prayer and faith to lighten other ingredients and raise the texture to great heights of Christian living. After pouring all this into your daily life, bake well with the heat of human kindness. Serve with a smile.
(If she only knew how much I missed her!!)
Have a blessed day!
