40 + Style Casual / Weekend Wear

Black and White to Fight the Winter Doldrums

Hi friends! Sorry for the radio silence over the past few weeks. January and the first part of February is my crazy busy time at work. I’ve been working like an insane woman. Plus, family-wise we have had a lot going on too. I feel like all I ever do anymore is drive kids around. Mom Uber. Oh, and the weather has sucked on the weekends too. Bad weather = no pictures. Not that I had any free time to actually take pictures…

This is the time of year that I don’t love. I could pretty much do without January, February and March. While it may be turning to spring in other parts of the country, Michigan is still completely engaged in and committed to winter. Spring clothing is coming into stores and there is no way that I will be able to wear any of it for a few months.

I struggle with trying to stay warm, while looking somewhat sping-ish. Come March, I refuse to wear tall boots. I’m obstinate that way. So, I opt for a neutral color scheme that doesn’t say “I’m typically worn in fall or spring”. That’s why I love black, white and red together. It’s season neutral.
