Mood: Moody Blues

In like a  lion, out like a lamb.  The “old Pennsylvanian saw” holds true this year so far.  With the windy, rainy, moody blue days we’ve had, I’m also feeling that vibe.  I’ve been gravitating towards the blues lately, which seem to be perfect for end of winter.

When looking for a black leather jacket for the Justin Timberlake Concert (see here) I found this cool navy one instead, which got me super excited and fit my moody blue vibes.  Layered with a prairie blouse and some fresh-again flares I have a look that works well for March as we transition to that lamb like weather.

Wear and Share Wednesday may be blue, but in the best way possible, as blue IS my favorite color.   I’m loving that I can layer up a spring blouse and jeans and not freeze, which means spring is on its way!  And as far as my lip of the day, Avon True Color Lip Glow in Afterglow!  Pinks go strangely well with blues (see what I mean here!)  You can shop the mark. spring collection and lip color online at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

More March Weather Lore:

  • A dry March and a wet May? Fill barns and bays with corn and hay.
  • As it rains in March, so it rains in June.
  • March winds and April showers? Bring forth May flowers.
  • So many mists in March you see, so many frosts in May will be.
  • Is’t on St. Joseph’s day (19th) clear, So follows a fertile year; Is’t on St. Mary’s (25th) bright and clear, Fertile is said to be the year.

Rain Rain Go Away…

Rain Rain Go Away

Rain Rain Go Away

Its been a rainy January, which we need here in NorCal. Doesn’t change the fact that rainy days need an extra boost! Like a holographic a rain anorak, a bright cobalt blue sweater and some hunters!

Wearing:  mark. New Millennium Anorak, mark. Laced Up Sweater, Avon Ponte Knit Pants, Hunter Rain Boots.

Anoraks are a great staple for your jacket wardrobe.  They’re light and packable and extremely functional.  I’m really loving this holographic one from mark. with convertible sleeves but there are a ton of different options.  I also am really loving this cute gingham one!  If it is still too cold to wear a light layer then pair an anorak up with your warmest fleece or sweater, or over something like a fleece North Face Jacket.

You can shop my look over at the eBoutique.  Also going on over there a free sample of our unreleased but majorly hyped Honey Blossom perfume with any fragrance purchase.  Basically, you can try it before anyone can even order it!

Casual Rain Gear

Layered Rain Gear

As the girl scouts say, always be prepared.  I definitely came prepared with my rain gear and layered essentials.  I paired really comfy black jeggings (Express) with this (old) mark. layered sweatshirt, layered with this (old) mark. anorak.   What better way to be prepared than with some Hunters and a cute umbrella from Kate Spade!?  Sidenote on Hunters:  I hate to say it, they’re actually worth the price.  They’re seriously the most comfortable functional shoe I own, and keep you dry without freezing your feet.
