How do you like them @deb922? How’s the weight of them?

They look comfy and cute.

It will be fun to see actual pictures on this thread, even though I can’t post any myself yet.

Not super light but also not thick. I have a pair of the textured Brooklyn joggers from this summer and they are a very light material and they are kinda poofy. I should have sent them back but they were really cheap at the end of the season so I decided to keep them. These are very comfortable but pretty slim fitting. With a thick waistband. And nice pockets.

I don’t care for an oversized thick jogger. Looks sloppy. I like a slimmer fit.

I’ll wear them with a shorter top, probably a mock turtleneck or plain black pullover.

I got this recently in black, pink, and another similar one in olive green. They are very soft and roomy, good for working form home. I like this brand.

I got the Land’s End Sweater Fleece Blazer. It’s so warm and comfortable and looks dressier than my usual cardigans.

I’m not a blazer person But appreciate that what looks like comfortable fabric!

That’s a really cute top @oldfort and does look comfortable but still professional for video meetings. I wore jackets/blazers a fair amount- even with jeans- but one has not touched my body since March.

I’ve been in a bad mood yesterday and today. Snapped at both my boys a couple times, which isn’t like me. DH even mentioned it. Not sure what’s gotten into me, but to pacify myself I bought these boots this afternoon. I have never spent more than $135 on a pair of shoes before! One of my favorite bloggers, So Heather, was wearing ivory boots, ivory sweater and I loved the look. So I bought the boots and sweater. Just wish I didn’t have to wait until next fall to wear them. The photo attached is So Heather, unfortunately not me. I want the boots she’s wearing, but they are out in my size, so I git another she suggested.

Very cute, post Covid outfit!

Don’t worry about being grumpy @conmama! You are in good company! I’ve been very crabby, my poor husband

Missing my kids and my mom this year I baked cookies, made me feel better.

A lot of the stuff I’ve sent is in shipping purgatory.

Thanks @deb922, not as grumpy tonight. Maybe I need to buy more for myself!

I got my first pair of Rothys as a Christmas gift. I now understand why they have been talked about so much on this thread, they fit like a glove! Also got Rothy face masks, the fit is so great, can’t imagine wearing any others that I have.

D2 asked for a pair of short white boots xmas. I got them for her, but I don’t have to wear them. The funny thing is they also sent me a pair of black boots by mistake. They told me to keep them.

I forgot who mentioned Ripskirts upthread, but I’ve just purchased a few of them (lengths 2 and 4) and absolutely LOVE them! Bought a few tees and tank tops also thinking ahead to the spring and they are the perfect material and length. This will be my new summer go-to!

I know summer is really far away, but as I have this dress in another color I bought in CA a couple years ago and love it! It says Cotton, but is Rayon. It’s also sold on the Rip Curl site, can’t figure out how Amazon (from 6pm), has it cheaper.

It skims the torso nicely. True to size. Youthful, but a modest length. It arrives today…makes me want summer!

Thanks for posting. It’s nice to dream about summer (even though I still have summer dresses bought last year still unworn).

The linked dress is really pretty. For pear-shaped me, that neckline would be too low/loose. But Amazon showed this $24.99 pretty style, with pockets (my thing) that I’ve viewed previously, possibly from recommendation on this thread - I like the ilght blue floral - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08PFVD9QX/ref=syn_sd_onsite_desktop_51?psc=1&uh_it=801dda67265b267062f1e9404dbb3c7b_CT&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExM0c1QVdLOEQxMlM2JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjEyMzAyM040VklMTjJPUlk0RyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMzc5Mzg2MlRSWlBDTEpJNjdRVyZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNkX29uc2l0ZV9kZXNrdG9wJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==

@Colorado_mom , I like that style of dress! Actually, I wear a lacy bralette with the other dress, as it is a little low. It came in today, and I’m disappointed as the color isn’t as represented in the photo. It’s more a mustard yellow, vs. sunny yellow. Doesn’t look as nice with my coloring, but I like it well enough to keep…find jewelry to offset it.
