PINK AND GRAY FOR SPRING

Friday, January 27, 2017

50 IS NOT OLD | PINK AND GRAY FOR SPRINGThe sun was out today and I even took a picture and put it on my Facebook page to prove it. It has rained so much I told Joe that we need to have a sale at the lumber company. He asked me what kind of sale I had in mind and I told him, “Ark Supplies.” He looked at me and said, “What?” He just looked so confused, so I told him again. Once again he asked me what I was talking about. I finally yelled at him, “ARK!!!!” Oh, okay, I get it! 50 IS NOT OLD | PINK AND GRAY FOR SPRINGHave you ever heard the expression that men marry women like their mom and women marry men like their daddy? Let me tell you a little story about my dad and you decide. My mom had cooked supper and had it on the table. I am not sure what it was but I think it had turnip greens in the menu. I am not a fan of turnip greens but I know that some people like to season them with vinegar. My mom was busy on the computer and dad asked her for the vinegar but I don’t think she heard him. He asked again for the vinegar, but again mom was preoccupied so she didn’t hear him. Finally,  he shouted, “VINEGAR!!!!” Everybody about jumped out of their skin he was so loud. It has become a phrase that is used in my household often. Ever so often Joe or I one will yell, “VINEGAR” when the other one is not paying attention. Hahaha Maybe I am the one like daddy. 50 IS NOT OLD | PINK AND GRAY FOR SPRINGI LOVE this top! I just got this in the other day c/o the Purple Poppy. I styled another one of their items last year (see here) and I know them to have quality products. When they contacted me again I was chomping at the bit to look at their website. I looked at the tops and the sweaters which are usually my favorites items but I was intrigued by the category that said Before & After. This line is now called Whimsy Rose and I am going to forewarn you that every one of the tops in this line is adorable! I narrowed down my choice to two or three and finally just told them for them to pick. This one is called the Desert Bloom Blush. It just screams spring!!! This is very light-weight and has the waffly texture of insulated underwear. That might sound strange, but it is adorable.50 IS NOT OLD | PINK AND GRAY FOR SPRINGThe bracelets I have on look like they were just made for this top. They are the Broedrick and the Ezra (sold out). I decided to wear a Plunder Posse from October, along with my Believe necklace, and I thought it looked fine. However, as I was leaving for work I stopped and check the mailbox. I immediately threw off the Posse necklace and instead put on my brand new Heritage necklace which is one of the Valentine’s Day specials. I swear they look like I bought all this to go with my top!!!

I styled this purse on yesterday’s post so I won’t link to it again. Instead, let me tell you about my new gray leather boots by Halston. These are the perfect color of gray, I would call them a medium gray. They have a very small wedge heel and a pointy toe.

50 IS NOT OLD | PINK AND GRAY FOR SPRINGThe darker gray pants are just a little too big for me. By the end of the day I had a saggy butt, thankfully the tunic top covered most of that. Haha! I am not sure what the name of the pants was because I have cut out the tag. They must have had an itchy tag to go along with a saggy butt. Lol!

      Color really does affect your mood. I try to watch when I start wearing a lot of black and gray and try to add some color to brighten my spirit.

    I understand the story. My mom never worked outside the home and was at dads beck and call. Funny story. Needless to say I didn’t follow suit. My husband would be yelling vinegar a lot. Ha, Ha! That was another time our parents lived in. Your top is lovely. So pretty and soft. Happy Friday!

    I love the Desert Bloom Blush top! The colors are beautiful! You always look so darn cute. I enjoyed your vinegar story because it made me think of my family. I was born and raised in Pensacola, Florida. There were 10 kids in my family and now there are only 4 of us. We have so many funny stories that we love sharing with our kids when we are all together. We can’t wait for our upcoming visit in February.

    My heart stopped when I saw this picture because on my phone the pants, boots and purse all look purple! While I love the top, the whole outfit in purple was stunning for a purple freak like me! The outfit is lovely on you Tania even if not all purple! 💜

    I’ve been looking through several of your posts since I’ve just started getting your e mails and I love how you are not afraid of colors and putting different patterns together. Your my kind of stylist. I like to be different and not look like every one else. I also love your “BLESSED” necklace. How and where can I get one?

      Tara, my necklace came from a little shop in Marietta. It is by Monarch Inspirations and Amazon carries a few items from them. Check them out. Thanks for following. 🙂

    Oh haha Tania! I love your stories! My husband and I have been married 32 years and it is hard not to get frustrated sometimes! My beef is his not getting my attention by saying “Julie”, if not I lose half what he’s saying! Oh Lord this makes me sound old! So I can relate to the “ark” and “vinegar” stories! Love your spring is coming top!
