A-Tisket A-Tasket. In January?????

A-tisket a-tasket a brown and yellow basket!  For some reason this rhyme has been on my mind all weekend.
The weather was so incredible we went to the cabin.  En-route the temps were in the low 50's.
That got me thinking about spring and picnics and so a tisket a tasket popped into my mind.  If you know me you would know that when my mind wants to it can be like a steel trap.  Won't let anything out, especially trivial rhymes.
We really didn't go on a picnic this weekend.  Maybe, kinda could have, maybe should have.  But didn't . None the less the weekend was fun and I enjoyed the radiating heat of the wood burner and alone time with the Man.

So with that in mind I took a photo with my picnic basket and snowshoes in the background.  I'm just that kind of goof!

I did wear this outfit.  This is a pretty typical layered outfit for me.  Long sweater over skinny jeans, knee boots and a scarf and vest.  Simple, can't beat it.  Skinny jeans are a favorite of mine, I never, never, never (that's 3 nevers) wear them unless I wear a long top to cover my butt.  Leave that for the young ones.  These came from Target.  They were in the Jr. section so I had to buy one size larger due to my curvy thighs which makes the waist to big so I have to wear a belt.  Why is does everything have to be so complicated?  

 I just noticed the sweater looks a little stretched out.  I guess a few hours in the car will do that!

So have a good week and don't forget the  Trending Through the Decades: Layers link is active for a few more days.  This week it's all about layers.  I am layering myself over there right now!
So stop by and say hi.  No rules no pressure.  Just do it!

A-tisket a-tasket
A green and yellow basket
I wrote a letter to my love
And on the way I dropped it,
I dropped it,
I dropped it,
And on the way I dropped it.
A little boy he picked it up and put it in his pocket


  1. Ah, we do couples weekends at the lake ourselves. I like the tip about sizing up in the juniors' dept. All of the layers look great.

  2. This is the cutest picnic look I have seen in a long time...I love it! You look awesome. Have you registered to be in IFB?? If you go to can find all of the directions for the links a la mode!! Just email me if you need more help!

  3. I cannot find true skinny jeans to fit me at all. My legs are smaller than my middle, so the legs are always too big. The red jeans I have on in my VM post are supposed to be skinny jeans, but aren't on me!
    You look fab in this outfit. I love the boots!

  4. Such a classic look! I really like the look of textured sweaters these days.

  5. This is a wonderful layered look, Tammy! Great scarf and boots, too, and I adore your picnic basket. Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday too!

  6. So the skinny jeans w/ boots! You do layering just so right!

  7. This looks great on you! I need to layer myself over to your link as well, now that I'm trying to get back into the swing again.

  8. I love this outfit. The vest, the boots. Rockstar!

  9. Love everything about it. Want that scarf...and the boots...well, everything!

  10. you're always good at layering by the way, I like that warm snuggy sweater, with a pretty scarf, and a nice furry vest, hehe..did you wrote that cute little basket poem? Yes I need to link up soon!


  11. Cute, cute outfit! It's almost picnic weather here in Indiana, although that will change by Wednesday.

  12. I wouldn't wear skinny pants without covering my bottom either- I don't really wear them to be honest- can't stand having a seam right up against my leg bizarrely!
    You look great in your layers- I missed this link-up- if only I hadn't lost my camera lead, I'd definitely link up! Wretched thing, where is it?!?!?!
    I always get things stuck in my head too!

  13. Love the slouch sweater and boots look- vaguely "Robin Hood".
