Fur gloves and personalized key chain (CharmingCharlie, $10)

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have noticed that pink purses are everywhere. Add a cute monogram and fur keychain and you are on your way to being……….FAB!  I was lucky enough to get this one for Christmas from my wonderful kids!

No winter wardrobe is complete without a pair of fabulous black gloves with faux fur. Go to Target right now and grab this pair………..you won’t regret it!!

Black Ankle Booties (similar style here & here)

I love all the booties and ‘shooties’ that are popular right now.  At first I thought I was too old to have a pair!  I know………age is just a number!  But when I tried on the ones with a higher heel I just felt like I was trying to act like I was 25 again…….yeah, wishful thinking!  I was not comfortable in them and half the battle of feeling confident is being comfortable and happy with what you are wearing!  So I opted for a lower heeled bootie and love them!  They look great with skinny jeans and slim legged black pants!  Now if you are over 40 and are wearing high heeled booties, don’t be a hater!!  Good for you!!!  Go strut yo’ stuff! Go wear those shoes confidently…………..I just prefer the the lower ones for myself.

Fringed Cardigan found at New York & Co.

In case you were wondering after visiting the New York & Co link above…………NO!! This is NOT a dress.  It’s a cardigan and should be worn with pants……….SMH!  Shame on you New York & Co. (no wonder they are going out of business…..wink, wink).  I found of few cute fringed cardigans here and here.
