Awkward and Awesome Friday

I am sure many of you have experienced much awkwardness this week with all of the cold.
Hopefully ya'll are getting a warm up this weekend as we are here in the Carolina's.
Awkward:
  • It's so cold that everything you touch shocks you.
  • All settled in to watch a RedBox movie and your DVD won't play.
  • The sad undecorated Christmas tree that is still standing in our house.
  • Watching the dog try to run on sheets of ice. Awkward for him...Hilarious for me.
  • The sticky tube of lip gloss that somehow leaked all over my other lipsticks.
 
 Awesome:
  • Not having to leave the house on the coldest day on record.
  • Back into a regular exercise routine.
  • Receiving New Year's cards from many friends that didn't send Christmas cards.
  • The return of Downton Abbey.
  • Running completely out of dog food and remembering that you have a new bag in the back of the car.
 
Bundling up for cold weather can still be stylish!
Bright colors boost the mood
 and
 winter accessories are oh so fabulous.

This coat is such a pretty shade of pink and the color is great on you! The cobalt blue pants are just the perfect color to wash away the cold weather blues. Love this!

What a chic coat, I prefer the more fitted style to the voluminous cocoon shapes which are supposed to be fashionable at the moment. Pale pink, blue, and polka dots, perfect!
Have a lovely weekend. xxx

Brett,
I adore that pink coat and the scarf is so pretty also!
I, too, am glad to see Donton Abbey, will watch tonight with hubby!
The polka dots made me smile, too!
XX, Elle

Oh yes, the return of Downton is indeed awesome! :) Your coat is pretty awesome, too! I love the lining of it!

Ha! I laughed out loud because I *just* took my tree down today! Seriously thought I was the last one!
And I agree - brights in winter are the best!
