Casual Date Outfit -25 Days of Winter Fashion (Day 18)

Casual Date Outfit-25 Days of Winter Fashion (Day 17)Happy Monday! It’s Day 18 of 25 Days of Winter Fashion. This is a casual date outfit I wore on Sunday afternoon, Wayne and I spent some time enjoying our mild weather.

If this was a typical December, I would have added a scarf to this outfit but since it’s a milder December, I didn’t need it.

I love buffalo plaid. I have several tops in buffalo plaid so when I saw this vest at Old Navy, I decided to add it to my collection.

Casual Date Outfit-25 Days of Winter Fashion (Day 17)Sometimes he needs my help with the camera so I take a picture of him to make sure it’s set right. I took three pictures of him and they were all good. What? We take a lot more of me to get good ones! #weclashinourplaids

Beauty For the Heart~~There are countless scriptures given to us from the Lord when times are hard. There is one in the Old testament given first to Moses then to Joshua, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” (Deuteronomy 31:6 Joshua 1:5)

In case we think it was only spoken to them, it is quoted again in the New testament (Hebrews 13:5).

So whatever you’re facing today, you are not alone. He will not leave you!

Have a blessed day!

  1. Your Wayne is handsome! I live on the coast of AL, Orange Beach to be exact. It’s 50 here this morning. And that is chilly. The advice, dress for the season, not the temperature is difficult at times🎄🎅

      1. I agree completely. I am trying to pack for a trip to Austin TX this week and I live in Iowa. It is supposed to be in the mid 70’s there and I am struggling with how to pack stylish clothes that won’t look like I think it’s July 🙂

  2. Hi Cyndi. I have the same vest. It came in the mail last week but I haven’t wore it. Does your vest tend to “hike up” in the shoulders? Mine does and it’s kinda weird. Not sure I can do anything to fix it. I saw some other reviews on the ON website and they noted the same issue.

  3. I just love reading your blog. I enjoy your style and being 53 I never want to look too old or too young…I’m at an awkward age in dressing. I also appreciate and understand the missing of your mom. I lost my mom 5 years ago and then my dad 2 years ago. Every day I miss them more and more. I just visited the cemetery last week. God Bless you as you make your visit. It’s so hard yet so necessary.

  4. Very sweet couple, I wish you were near me I’d love to visit your church. Do you do your shopping on line or in person?

    1. I do both. I love to shop online but sometimes I have to go to the store and see the clothes.
      If you’re ever in KY, stop by our church!

  5. Are these photos from yesterday? I was at Shaker Village too! My husband and I were heading home to Ohio from western KY and decided to detour over to Shaker Village for lunch. I bought a beautiful wreath at the shop where you are sitting….and a tiny tree at the shop next to the restaurant…. Wonderful lunch, beautiful weather, wonderful day. We had so much fun and got some good photos too. Would love to have met you and Wayne.

    1. Yes they were Lori. We must have passed each other!! Ha!
      Isn’t Shaker Village beautiful. We were there Friday night too and it’s gorgeous with all the lights. We live just a few minutes away.

  6. Good Morning Cyndi!
    It looks like you and Wayne had fun taking the photos! Here in the metro area of Atlanta it us warmer than it should be, short sleeve weather to be exact. At least it’s dry. Since we like cold weather, we are missing the cooler temps.
    Have a blessed day!

  7. Hey Wayne! Great to see him again. You’re so cute Cyndi… Smiling /blushing when he takes your photos! So sweet! Love those boots you’re wearing. I known you’ve worn them many times… Are they super comfortable? Can you wear them all day long? Beautiful post today and yes, we are having milder temps in NJ too. Have a blessed day 😉

  8. Our weather in Northern Nevada is definitely colder than usual. I am tired of wearing jeans so I started wearing sweater dresses with tights and boots to church, etc.

  9. Very cute outfit Cyndi. I’m looking at the jeans and wondering what size you are wearing. I am usually a 6, should I size up since they are skinny? What is the rise? I like it close to the waist rise. Have you purchased any other Wit and Wisdom jeans?

    1. I’m wearing a size 6. I don’t think you would need to size up. I wear a size 6 at LOFT too. If you wear a 4 at Loft, I would get a size 4.
      They sit right below my belly button. They’re not a thick jean but I really like them!!

  10. I have the vest in the “Forrest Floor” aka olive green and absolutely love it! May have to order the red checked now.

  11. The vest is really cute. You and Wayne make such a cute couple. Thanks for including
    the info for your husbands outfit, it is helpful when I buy for my husband. I really enjoy your blog and all your hard work is greatly appreciated.

  12. I am new to your blog and am loving all the wonderful styles in the pictures. Can you tell me where you got those boots…. I love them?

  13. Too cute!!! It doesn’t matter whether it’s casual or dressy, you are able to pull together the best outfits! I have Deuteronomy 31:6 placed on my desk where I can see it during the day. Thanks for the words that seem to flow just when they’re needed!

  14. I have the same vest and I’m loving it! Our weather was milder until recently. I was loving the milder weather.

    1. Hey Shery! Sorry I’m just getting you your question. The boots I’m wearing are from Glamour Farms and they are out of stock now. Sorry about that!!

  15. Such a cute outfit! And I love it when you post pictures taken at Shaker Village. It brings back special memories of eating dinner there one Christmas season when we lived in Harrodsburg. When we walked out it started snowing. Magical! Merry Christmas!

  16. Hi Cyndi,
    I love your fashion taste/style. I’m curious though, how tall are you? I’m barely 5’3″ and I’m just wondering if I could pull off some of these outfits.
