Flowers on Wool

This is one of my favorite winter time dresses.
It's grey wool with a very colorful pink, white, and navy blue floral print.
Flowers on wool is like sunshine on a cold winter day.
Not always expected but just pretty.

I think the dress is actually a maternity dress but I always pair it with a belt to define the waist. Also paired it with a fuzzy vest and my country girl lace up boots to stay extra warm. I've had those boots for years! They've mainly been used for nature walks up north where my parents live.

January is taking forever, it seems. I've started the new year with a new routine, waking up to these two books. Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach is my daily dose of inspiration every single morning. I highly suggest this wonderful book if you love getting a fresh perspective on life regularly.

The other book is my 2010 planner called Listography, all about making lists for what you have to do weekly, works so perfectly for my chaotic life! I love the simplicity of this little book.

Do you have a morning routine that makes life just a little sweeter? I love making my green tea and taking a half hour to myself in the morning. It's just this nice, quiet, and peaceful time of the day that is so sacred. :)

  1. I just got a dog and I walk him for 20 minutes every morning. It feels good to wake up early and have a morning walk. I started reading books too. Lovely bones is a good read!

  2. hello, Joy. :)
    You must love walking your dog!
    I read the Lovely Bones a few years ago, can't wait to see the movie. I think it comes out very soon.

  3. I try & spend some quiet time alone after I drop The Boy off at school. Praying or reading ...I have no attention span in the morning & oft end up back on the computer reading blogs :)


I really appreciate your comments, thank you. ♥
