Spring Forward

“A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period –
When March is scarcely here
A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.” (Emily Dickinson)
Hello Everyone, Did you remember to set your clocks ahead last night? I am so excited about the extra daylight as I am sure everyone is. It’s a small sacrifice to lose an hour of sleep for an extra hour of wonderful natural light. But I may not feel that way tomorrow morning at 5 a.m.
I am not sure if we felt that extra hour of “light” today due to the snow, sleet and freezing rain. The black and white effect of today’s weather inspired me to incorporate black and white as my theme for today’s fashion post.
This is one of my favorite dresses seen in this post that just so happens to be black and white. I love the drape of the neckline and the clean lines. What do you think of the white fishnet stockings?  Fishnet stockings are more durable than regular pantyhose and I love the texture they add.

19 Crimes Cabernet Sauvignon; this is the same bottle from this post The Vintage Pleated Skirt and 19 Crimes.  I swear, it’s the same empty bottle.

Here is the dress with a black shrug which enables me to wear it even on a cold day like today.

This is another black and white outfit that is perfect for this time of year. The material of this classic button-down blouse is rayon and polyester and it washes beautifully.

The pencil skirt is leg hugging but stretchy and comfortable. It does not have a back slit and doesn’t need one.

Maybe this is the “light that exists in spring.”

Simply bleak…but beautiful
20190303182555_IMG_0214Welcome, March.
These are the shoes I am wearing. I purchased them at Famous Footwear on sale for $24.99, originally $59.99. They have a breathable lining with a foam cushioned footbed and a flexible outsole with a traction tread.  They are sooooo comfortable.

I did some ice fishing with my husband on Saturday and what a beautiful day on the ice. This was the sky yesterday, 3/9/19.

This is inside the bob house looking out.

This lake was loaded with fish. My husband knew it was a good day when he ran out of bait. The final count: 4 bass, 5 perch, and 3 pickerel. This guy didn’t make it as the hook was deeply imbedded.
