Green Sweater + Red Plaid Scarf

Happy Tuesday! Today I’m sharing a green sweater from LOFT  and a red plaid scarf from Old Navy that I wore to run errands. I love plaid, and especially this time of year, it feels very festive.

Green Sweater + Red Plaid ScarfI don’t always wear a belt but I recently found these knock-off Gucci belts on Amazon, and I love them. I ordered one in brown and one in black. The original Gucci belt is $350, and I’m not going to lie, I would like to have one but I that price is too steep.

Green Sweater + Red Plaid Scarf Green Sweater + Red Plaid ScarfI’m wearing an XS in this green sweater, but it doesn’t run big like most things at LOFT. So if you’re in between sizes, I would order up. I could have worn the small too.

I wore this red coat from last year with this outfit. I didn’t take a picture in it because I wasn’t sure Macy’s would have it this year, but they do!! It’s a gorgeous red coat, and they have it in 6 different colors. I think I’m going to get it in black.

Beauty For The Heart~~

As I was walking down life’s
highway many years ago
I came upon a sign that read
Heavens Grocery Store.

When I got a little closer
the doors swung open wide
And when I came to myself
I was standing inside.

I saw a host of angels.
They were standing everywhere
One handed me a basket and said
“My child, shop with care.”

Everything a human needed
was in that grocery store
And what you could not carry
you could come back for more.

First I got some Patience.
Love was in that same row.
Further down was Understanding,
you need that everywhere you go.

I got a box or two of Wisdom
and Faith a bag or two.
And Charity, of course,
I would need some of that, too.

I couldn’t miss the Holy Ghost
It was all over the place.
And then some Strength and Courage
to help me run this race.

My basket was getting full but I remembered I needed Grace,
And then I chose Salvation for
Salvation was for free
I tried to get enough of that to do for you and me.

Then I started to the counter
to pay my grocery bill,
For I thought I had everything
to do the Masters will.

As I went up the aisle I saw
Prayer and put that in,
For I knew when I stepped outside
I would run into sin.

Peace and Joy were plentiful,
the last things on the shelf.
Song and Praise were hanging near
so I just helped myself.

Then I said to the angel
“How much do I owe?”
He smiled and said
“Just take them everywhere you go.”

Again I asked “Really now,
how much do I owe?”
“My child,” he said,
“God paid your bill a long, long time ago.”

Have a blessed day!

  1. Love this festive outfit! I was able to finally get that scarf just now, yay! It sold out on me several times over the last month.

  2. I love that poem! I continue to pray for you & Wayne. Trying times in your family right now but your faith is solid Cyndi and that’s such a blessing. I pray your Step-Mom’s surgery was successful and she’ll have a speedy recovery. Hugs to you. ❤️

  3. Pretty outfit! If you think of it when you share a coat, could you indicate whether it’s light, mid, or heavyweight for warmth? I think it would be helpful both for those in milder and colder parts of the country. I’m surprised many store websites don’t indicate this.
    I hope your Stepmom did well!

  4. Thank you for sharing the beautiful poem, brought tears to my eyes. God has gave his all for us! Praying surgery & recovery goes well for your Stepmom. Love your outfit, perfect for this time of year!

  5. Love the poem! I needed to see that. These past months have been hard for you. Im praying God will give you what need in this time. Love the outfit.

  6. Could you tell me what size your red coat is? The poem is beautiful – thanks for sharing with us. Hope all goes well with your stepmom.

  7. hey cyndi love all your outfits. i always check to see what you got so i can know what to wear. i do have a question? can we were white pants? i know its a no no after labor day but does that rule still apply?

  8. Great outfit Cyndi…I think I need that scarf! Thank you for the beautiful poem…I needed that today! Love and look forward to your posts every day, keep doing what you’re doing! Merry Christmas!

  9. I love this casual but festive outfit for this time of year. The sweater color is no longer available in petite 😟 and something went wrong with the Amazon belt as it is saying Do Not Order? But I didn’t even know there was a knock off you could buy in this belt. I think it makes the outfit! Thanks for sharing and hope all goes well for your stepmom.
