These Boots Were Made For Standing In My Yard

It's about 40 degrees this morning, which means I get to wear my boots and a sweater!  I get so excited when it's cool outside; I hardly ever wear these boots and I just bought the sweater on clearance last week!

I'm trying to smile but I'm squinting because the sun is relentlessly bright in Florida in the winter.

When I saw this picture, I began to sing that lovely 90s rap tune "Baby Got Back."  MYLANTA.  That is a large caboose. 

Yep, I am feeling sassy and cute in this outfit.  And yet, completely covered!  See, being modest doesn't mean wearing a potato sack. 

So what am I wearing?  
Dress: Walmart, bought in Gastonia, NC on a complete whim for $20 back in 2009.  It is one of my favorites!  Sweater: Target, bought in Orange City, FL for $17.50.  It's a size 2x which is normally a bit big on me, but when I tried on the 1x, the argyle pattern got really stretched out and it looked stupid.  So I sized up.  It's a very thin sweater which is great because thicker sweaters just will not get worn down here.  Boots, Avenue, bought in July 2009 for $20!  I mean, who buys boots in Florida?  I DO WHEN THEY'RE $20, THAT'S WHO!!!  Silver (I'm guess stainless steel with silver paint) hoops, WalMart, pack of 3 sets of hoops for $5.  

Mr. R will not be home for Valentines, which is really not a big deal to me.  Even when he's home, we don't celebrate.  Honestly, he loves me so much throughout the year that a random day in February doesn't mean too much to me.  But I hope that you all get to have a lovely special day if you wish!

You look awesome, Sarah!! And I know what you mean about the boots.

We're right there with you and Mr. R on Valentine's Day, too.

Thank you Terry; I do love a sale. *happy sigh*
And yes, I'd rather be treated like his queen every day, rather than just one day per year.

You are so adorable!!

The sun is relentlessly bright....I'll just try really hard not to be jealous of that lol.

I feel the same way about Valentine's Day. I'm glad it isn't a big deal to me, because I'd be sorely disappointed 5 out of 7 years LOL.
