Everlane Combat Boots - Monday Favorite Things


Tis The Season to be Merry

The jolliest time of the year is upon us.  Let the shopping and merriment commence.  Of course, this  HO HO HO holiday will be unlike seasons past and instead will include the necessary precautions.  However, we can still enjoy the festivities with a new spin.  Our plans will be the opposite of last year, yet the joy of giving will remain intact. 

In a way, it reminds me of Cindy Lou Who from the story, cartoon, and movie, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas (2000).   All the Who's down in Whoville were merrily singing on Christmas Day without ribbons, packages, boxes, and tags.  They were happy without the usual trappings of the holiday.  The Who's knew the importance of the holiday does not come from a store.  It comes from the heart.   The Grinch's heart grew three times this day.  The Grinch came down the mountain top and delivered the stolen gifts with a greater heart and an understanding of the importance of the holiday.  Nothing would stop him from giving. 

Thus, gift giving remains paramount in our crazy Alice in Wonderland environment.  Giving does not mean bestowing only presents, rather it is the kindness we share daily.  It is the smile, listening, connecting, and creating a beautiful scene for all to enjoy.  For instance, in my neighborhood, everyone has decorated their houses like the house in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (1989)!  The scene is uplifting and the smiles are huge.   Which brings me to my favorite thing for this Monday - Everlane Combat Boots.


Everlane is a terrific company with quality apparel, accessories, boots, and shoes.  You will not be disappointed.  Currently, these numbers are on sale and selling out.  Be sure to follow the sizing guidelines.  I ordered half size up and they fit beautifully.  The brown is a deep chocolate brown, which is always difficult to obtain.  These boots are comfortable right out of the box.  You do not need to break them in.

There you have it.  Get ready to spread gaiety this holiday.  Do not wait for better days to come.  Instead embrace the spirit of Christmas and grow your heart three times larger.  We are blessed.  Let us share exuberance to one and to all. 

And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store."
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"
And what happened then? Whoville they say,
That the Grinch's small heart Grew three sizes that day!
And the minute his heart didn't feel quite so tight,
He whizzed with his load through the bright morning light,
And he brought back the toys! And the food for the feast!
And he, HE HIMSELF! The Grinch carved the roast beast!

Happy Giving! 

Until Next Time,

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
