Winter Fashion 2021

 


The Chilly Artic

"Good clothing is a passport to happiness." Yves Saint Laurent


Yves St. Laurent Fashion Exhibit - Seattle Art Museum (2016)


The winter of 2021 has been brutally cold across the country.  One for the ages. With snowstorms, bitter winds and ice, the frigid temperatures have seeped into everyone's bones.  Even places slated to be warm in February tend to be on the cooler side of the temperature gage.  Though, I must note that temps are slowly getting warmer in the sun infused states.  Beyond the weather, nerves remain flared as people struggle to get the vaccine, keep safe and bundled up all in one sweep.  The stress is at an all-time high. 

It seems to me; we need to sit back and figure out how to be helpful to one another.  To be positive and appreciative for family and friends during these trying moments. We are closer to having everyone vaccinated and getting back to a semi-normal life.  In the meantime, we must be patient and diligent awhile longer. 

We need to be respectful of everyone's thoughts and measures they have taken in 2020 and in the beginning of 2021.  Some may not agree with the path you have chosen.  Stay the course.  Think positive and keep strong.  Those that moan, whine and wail about the injustices of this or that are emoting unhappiness or seeking control.  It is somewhat understandable as change has been rampant.  Learning to be flexible is the key to survive. As I have said before, "just go with it." This period in history will pass. When you stick to the plan with an upbeat vibe, you will attract more honey than flies.  It is the road less travelled. 

While we seek within us to be kind, respectful of other opinions and remain firm, we can also dress warm.  Of course, the outfit above by Yves Saint Laurent, is divine, yet it is probably not best suited for the frosty elements.  

Even with the land being ice-glacial our hearts can remain warm to share with the world.  Finally, prayers for those in Texas dealing with an unimaginable cold snap that has left them without water and electricity.  Prayers life will return to normal soon.  Be kind. Be helpful. Be present.   


Winter Warmth

I have worn mine almost every day.  The perfect coat for an ice-numbing environment.  It looks sleek and fashionable too.  You do not feel like you are wearing a puffy coat that overwhelms.  The North Face Metropolis II Water Repellent 550 Power Down Hooded Parka.

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
