Pattern Mixing, Plaid and Dots

DSC_0361_2Do you feel like you need to adjust your computer screen? These colors just seem to jump off the page, don’t they? Michelle, commented the yesterday that I sometimes had a little funky style. I don’t know what she is talking about! LOL!!!DSC_0361Let’s start with the positive’s. My lipstick looks good with this shirt, and the navy in my sweater makes my eyes look really blue:) I couldn’t believe my husband didn’t comment when I wore this, well not a whole lot. He did say the polka dots was making it hard for him to focus. Haha This polka dot cardigan if from Old Navy, and I think it was purchased last year. Here is a similar one on Amazon. The plaid shirt is also from Old Navy, and I bought it this year. Even though I bought it this year, my exact one is not available on their site, so here is the closest one that I could find.DSC_0360Both of these necklaces came from a vendor on etsy called Artistic Icing. She always has some really unique items, and her items are always good quality. Like the state of Virginia necklace with a little heart in the area where I live.DSC_0354This necklace was called the kitchen sink. It has a little bit of everything on it. My watch is from Fossil, and is probably two years old. I really like the dark brown face, with the surrounding crystals, and the watch is a rose gold shade.  Here is one I found on ebay that is similar. My outfit has plaid and polka dots, so why not stripes too? I added two bright blue stripped bangles. Just because……. DSC_0358My husband picked out my shoes, I’m not kidding. I had on another pair,and he told me he liked this pair better. Well, okay then. I bought these at the OVC outlet, but here they are on OVC. I am always shocked when I see what they sell for, and not what I pay for them. I guess 25.00 for shoes is a REALLY GOOD DEAL! DSC_0359The navy corduroys are from Old Navy, as well. But, I can’t tell you when I bought them. I had put winter clothes under my bed in one of the vacuum bags, (I don’t suck the air out) a couple of years ago. I just dragged the bags out the other day, and these pants was in the bag. I was just tickled I could still wear them. Here is what Old Navy has on their site now.DSC_0356Beckley came to see me, but I think the patterns might have hurt his eyes. Lol

    Thank you ! Good stuff I am 58 and feel old but trying to snap out of it. Trying good outfits without some one saying stop trying to act like your 21. Lol

    I love your style! I just found you on Pinterest, and am anxious to see more!

    1. Great Linda! I am so glad you found me!!!

  3. You look lovely. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. Watch for your feature tomorrow xo

  4. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style. I love the polka dot cardi with the plaid shirt! So unexpected, but chic.

    1. Thanks Nicole! I love the link ups:)

  5. Hi Tania, I just stumbled upon your blog via Pinterest. I love your outfits and your style! I will soon be 49, and have taken a lot of inspiration on style from blogs like yours. Your comment about Cato, Rue 21 and Peebles struck a chord, as I have those 3 in my town. Then you referenced the Erwin Apple Festival. I’m in Elizabethton, Tn. Surely we must be nearly neighbors! Take care.

    1. Cindy, we are neighbors, well almost. I live in Grundy, VA, a couple hours away. It is a small world:)

    1. Thanks Debbie! I’m not very brave, I just try something and cross my fingers. If it doesn’t look right, big deal. Don’t wear it again. Lol!

  6. I always love your choice of shoes, but nearly passed out when I saw the price of the gorgeous Chanel slippers. You do get great buys at the QVC outlet… wish there was one close to my neck of the woods. Love your style!!

    1. Nancy, I even looked for the lowest price I could find on theses shoes. Let’s just say, I doubt I’ll ever have another pair????

  7. Tania is my sister and gives me her castoffs. My normal color range is gray to black and my husband can always tell when I’m wearing something from her. The funny thing is he always likes it best!

    1. Lisa, your husband just has excellent taste????????????

  8. Love your shirt and sweater! I am a huge GATOR fan and our colors are orange and blue so this combo is something I am going to try. Pairing the plaid with the polka-dots is genius.

  9. I always get a chuckle out of your posts – thanks! Love the outfit, too.

  10. Wow! I think I would have to see this in person to know what I really think. I have a navy polka dot sweater that I wear with a navy striped blouse and a mustard color belt. That works really well together. I will have to try my plaid shirts with the polka dots and see how my husband reacts. He is usually a good barometer of how an outfit looks. Love the creativity and the pizzazz to wear this look!

  11. Love all your outfits…they inspire me to try and dress “more put together”. 🙂 I also love your hair and must know what color(s) are used to achieve the look. Looking forward to your next outfit! 🙂

  12. Hi Tania! I just came across your Pinterest post and now I’m here reading your blog! What great post and pics you have, very inspiring! I just turned 50 this year so thanks for putting yourself out there!! Have fun!!

  13. Love it! Looks fabulous on you!
