Peacock Plumage

Posted on: April 18, 2013

A Sinus headache today( Wednesday) and my husband not having an appointment meant a great time for a field trip for homeschooling, Connor…I guess Connor’s finger snapping attracted this Peacock and he displayed his plumage:

Well, I needed to go find a saved outfit, because my sinus pressure left me uninspired to get dressed for photos… And guess what I found?


It’s just to0 coincidental and funny that I actually had this happen today!   

Inspiration for outfits or blog writing can come from anywhere! 


My bohemian side loves these longer skirts in Spring and early Fall…

When Spring hit, I put this outfit together, and sadly this skirt is too big and definitely not going to work as I lose my final pounds..I really love this turquoise color and every time I wore this skirt last year, I received many compliments… Just walking in the mall one time a young girl in her early twenties who was walking in front of me, turned to talk to her friend and saw me out of the corner of her eye.  She walked forward another two steps, then stopped turned around to compliment my skirt.  I swear I stood taller instantly!!! There really is something about the younger girls complimenting a middle aged woman that makes your heart soar!


A simple cold cuff bracelet and hoops are all that is needed for to accessorize this look where the star is the color!  

These slingbacks, are ones from Payless that I bought last year.  This open toed slingback wedge is one of my favorite shoe styles and I own several colors that I purchased from both Payless and Metrostyle.  This year’s versions are cute with polk a dots and flowers and great colors!

Dear Readers, What shoe style is your favorite for Spring?   Comments appreciated and welcome!

Come back tomorrow to see My Lucky Finds! 

Gratitude:  I am grateful that it worked out for my husband to take Connor to the Zoo and give me a break today.  I am grateful that by late afternoon my headache was at a tolerable level.  I am grateful that although I couldn’t manage running on the trampoline, that I was able to still do my fluidity workout and the weight workout.  I am grateful to my oldest son for seeing that the dishwasher needed to be unloaded and reloaded and did so!  I am grateful to my husband for bringing me sinus meds and vitamin C’s and the arm and shoulder massage this morning(arms and shoulder slightly sore from workouts).

Can you sew? I will buy items too big if I know I can alter them without it looking bad. I Love the outfit! You look great!

I can sew, and may try to add darts to this skirt.. Just wish it didn’t have zipper on the side as it would be easier to just take in the sides… I am not great, just a very basic when it comes to sewing…

This outfit and post couldn’t have worked out better to coincide with your zoo trip. Too bad the skirt is too big because it is beautiful!

I always try to compliment women when I see them at the store or in public. I know it makes me feel good when people do it to me too 🙂 Heather

I compliment a lot as well! I love building women up!!!!!
