Lemon & Lime

Posted on: May 24, 2013

I love this color combo especially after seeing the pictures outside with the colors of nature…

Linking up with Mom Pretty Monday


What I don’t love is what my hair was doing during this entire photos shoot,… Think it might be time to cut my bangs… Regardless not letting that little thing about my hair ruin my love of this outfit… 


I liked this pose because you can’t see my messed up hair!  This green sweater is one I purchased in several colors last year because as I’ve alluded to already, I love the third completer pieces even in warmer temps and they are needed for airconditioning for this lady who gets cold easily… This sweater comes in so many colors and is a QVC, Denim & Co essential and is currently priced at $26.00.  I love that they are 70% cotton and 30% nylon.  My one regret is that I bought them last year anticipating my weight loss goals but really wish I had them one size smaller… Oh well, I think I’ll make them work for this year, but look into replacing them for next year.


This pose my 17 year old took from down low on the ground as he was in a goofy mood taking shots from up high, the side and even turning the camera around to get his own face…

I told him I would use it as long as it didn’t make me look wider…

My yellow jeans are by Liz Claiborne via JC Penney and were purchased on clearance so no longer available.. The shoes and print top were both from Chadwicks last year and again no longer available.  This purse was thrifted and I just had toget it for summer!!


Since I really loved this color combo, couldn’t resist one last pose….

Dear Readers.  Are you looking forward to this holiday weekend?  Do you have any plans?  My husband is itching to use his new grill, so think we will have just a fun family of 6 event… I am so happy to have my daughter back home and will cherish this time as I know big changes are on the horizon as my adult children continue on in their independence… My dear fellow fashionistas, what color should i try next with these yellow jeans?  I have a few ideas, myself, but would love to hear you all weigh in , so make a girl happy and leave a comment!  Have a wonderful weekend filled with laughter, fun and family and friends!  Make some Memories!!!!

Gratitude-  I am grateful that my son finished the reading practice test and did incredible!  I am grateful that the testing I have to do for homeschooling arrived today and after peeking at it, I am confident he is well prepared for this…I am grateful that my 17 year old had fun taking my photos today, as I know sometimes he finds me a pain in his neck… I am grateful that after getting up way to early this morning that I had a good long nap and felt incredibly recharged!   I am grateful for the long weekend and time for more of these daily fun conversations with all of my children.  I am grateful that when my 17 year old had to pick an experience that helped him to grow for a paper, that he chose giving a Eulogy at my mother’s funeral when he was just 13 ( he really did an incredible job and made me so proud!)

I like the yellow and green combination of your outfit. How about a black/white print top to wear with the yellow bottoms?

I’m a mom to seven children, 25 to 6 yrs old. It seems to get more difficult to have all the family together for special events as each year passes. Enjoy your long weekend with all your children, husband and new grill!

Thank you and any time everyone can make it together is a moment to be cherished!

Fabulous color combo. And yellow goes with many more hues than we expect — try it out!

thank you and I will be trying several other color combos.

I have been following your blog for a couple months and I finally decided it was time to comment on a post. I love the variety of colour combos you create with your outfits and have tried a few new combos after getting inspiration from your blog. I had two compliments recently from people who have known me for years admiring the bright colours and the combos of colours I was wearing. I have to thank you for that. My shopping trips now include incorporating a third colour to an outfit I have, looking for scarves and accessories to pull new combos together and seeking out new pieces for my wardrobe so I can try different combos.
I have yellow jeans and will be looking for a green top to go along with the cobalt blue and coral/orange/purple print tops I already wear with them!!!
Thanks again and have a great weekend!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Knowing that I am inspiring others means so much to me and gives me the energy to keep going

This is great! Love the white jeans with the black top. You look fantastic.

You are just too cute! I love this color combination and the patterned navy blue top underneath the sweater. Very chic!

Thank you so much for commenting you made me smile!

[…] I was around the last time neon everything was popular, I feel a little old for it.  Tracey at Versatile Style by Tracey does a great job with it, but you may want to start with a more subtle neon addition to your […]

thanki for mentioning me and the link!

I hope you’ll keep an eye out on my blog later today. I’ll be featuring this as one of the looks I love today.


thank you for the heads up, I will definitely check it out!
