It has rained for days. The rain and cold weather have started to take a toll on my normally sunny nature. I have found myself being gloomy, tired, and borderline hateful. There might even be a few people who would say that there was no borderline. Lol! I got to noticing that my wardrobe was reflecting my mood. Here I wore gray, and here I wore black. So, today I thought I would change my mood through color.I get a LOT of comments that say they follow my blog because I dress in something other than black and gray. I didn’t think much about that statement till I kept seeing it over and over and over. The commenters say most bloggers wear black and gray. Really? I know black, white, navy, and gray are classic colors and they do make you appear dressy.
Wearing bright colors sends the message of fun, casual, and happy-go-lucky. This outfit definitely fits the description. I “feel” happy, I “feel” fun and light-hearted. I like those feelings! I bought this teal dressy t-shirt in Florida this past February. It has a satin trim around the neckline that gives it a nicer look. The material is also thicker and has a small amount of spandex, making it fit nice. The top is by Banana Republic and is the Luxe line.
This is the first time I have had on these pants. I love the bright turquoise color, it just screams, “HAPPY.” How could anyone be in a rotten-no-good mood when wearing these? It just can’t happen! The cute notch in the hem is a nice detail. The littlest details are what makes a piece of clothing special. They take it from ordinary to extraordinary. The notch makes the pants stand out, just like the satin trim helps the t-shirt not be so boring. When you are shopping, look for the details like cute buttons, pleating, embroidery, etc. This pants are by Thin Girl. I have no idea where I bought these. For some reason I think I bought them at Ross.
The accessory in this outfit is the show stopper. I have on a fun, colorful scarf that I bought last year at Catos. I loved the bright colors, but it was the tassels that made me purchase the scarf. Another example of a small detail making the difference. The scarf is nice with without the tassels, but when they are added, it takes the scarf to another level.
Scarf: Lily Pulitzer | Island Time | $2,000.00 (because I thought you would want to see a scarf that is that expensive)I have on my two leather bracelets from Jewels of the Vineyard. I really, really like these bracelets. You will see them time and time again. The shoes and purse are ones that I call “old faithful.” These two items will go with almost anything all summer long, and the shoes are sooooo comfortable. If you can wear a heel, the wedge heel is the most comfortable for your feet. Aerosoles also have a lot of padding in the shoe, making them easy to wear.
You might have noticed that it was windy today. This was probably about the third or fourth time that the wind had done this. Here I am just waiting out the wind. As soon as it would quit blowing, I would look up and try to get a picture. The trials and tribulations of a blogger. HahahaMost of you know that I went to Tennessee to see my sister give her commencement speech, but what you didn’t know was that my granddaughter, Matti, was having a ballet recital. This picture was taken during her solo performance. She is only 7, and I can’t believe how graceful and talented she is. I love this picture, it shows the love that she has for ballet in her face, and I love how graceful and elegant her little hands are. I might have shed a tear or two during her performance. It was special!
