Sometimes the sun is not my friend


The sun was giving us a heck of a time while trying to take these photos.  We took so many and I only got a few that were decent enough for a blog post.  Winter sun can be really tricky sometimes!

I have been in a "red" mood lately.  I'm going to blame Valentine's Day.  Every time this holiday comes around I feel like wearing red.  It must be all of the hearts!  



It's been really cold around here so I've been bundling up in my coziest sweaters.  This one is one of my favorites!  I tend to get overheated in sweaters sometimes but this one has little holes in it ( you can see it better in the closeup photos below) and that helps keep me cool while I'm indoors in the heat.  

I just got this jewelry at Charming Charlie while I was out over the weekend and I think it's so pretty!  I've worn it twice this week already.  I love the deep red.  I am so addicted to that store!


Are you as in love with Charming Charlie as I am?  Is it FREEZING where you are too?

    Sorry ... hate to say it, but it is already HOT here .. in the mid 70's!! YUCK!!!!! I am loving the red on you ... and you can always blame it on "wear red for women's heart health" -- that's the 6th this month :)

  3. I love love love that sweater and you look fab! I'm kind of obsessed with stripes and black + white. And yes, to CC and the freezing cold. Somebody posted the other day about "where is warm weather and lake days?" Seriously... I'm kinda over the freezing cold. At least you have snow to show for it. I can't even boast that.

  5. Thanks so much <3 I'm a bit obsessed with black and white stripes too. lol! I can't wait until it starts feeling like Spring outside. We didn't have much of a summer last year, so I'm hoping this year is better.

  9. That's cute Julie... I've enjoyed your recent posts as they help to remind me winter doesn't have to be dull and can be just as much fun as other seasons. I may have to try and replicate this look :-)

  11. I think it's cute that you wear more red around Valentine's day, that's really festive! Your necklace is really pretty, I should start wearing more jewellery but I always forget to accessorize. It's cold here and I am SO tired of the freezing weather and bad driving conditions and cleaning the snow off of my car! Hurry up summer!

  12. You look lovely in red! Keep it up! That sweater looks very cozy and matches well with your pants.

    It's freezing here today too! But then it'll be in the 60s for the next week. Denver weather is so weird... For pictures, I try to not stand in direct sunlight. Makes us look less washed out :)

  13. Oh man, I've taken a few photos where the sun just wasn't cooperating! But you look great in them! Love that sweater!

  14. Thank you so much! I always end up with squinty eyes in the sun. lol! That's definitely one of my favorite sweaters. So soft and cozy. It actually has a split back but I forgot to take a pic of it...oops!

  15. I'm such a little kid about holidays! I love them. You lets you get excited about something and celebrate! lol. I tend to forget to accessorize a lot of the time too. I ended up putting all of my necklaces on a corkboard right on my wall so I could see them. If they aren't hiding away in a drawer then I feel like I will wear them more. Out of sight, out of mind. And I'm with you! Please hurry up summer! lol

  16. Thanks so much! My husband says he likes when I wear red, I just figured it was because I don't often. haha! The weather is a little bipolar around here too. Earlier this week it was below the teens and yesterday it went up to almost 50! So weird
