Black & White with Raspberry

Posted on: July 28, 2013

I love this color combo and it really was a great outfit for the day with grocery shopping… Grocery shopping for my family of six includes a trip to BJ’s then back to the house to unload and put perishables away.. Not done yet. back out to the regular grocery store for the reaminader of itemss, then back  home to put it all away…  

Linking up today with Visible Monday and Watch What I’m Wearing


I also have to make a list and accomodate everyones’s taste and diet preferences…  I’m  exhausted just thinking about  it all.  But, like all things in my life it has it’s positives,,, My seventeen year old son accompanies me and we have great one on one time together!!!


I am definitely getting some use out of my Nine West white purse…. This outfite a a great blend of thrifted and non-thrifted items. The striped tank and the Ann Talylor rasberry colored cardigan are both thrifted, while the Capris are Bandolino from Bj’s  and floral wedges from Aerosoles. IMG_1207

I really love the black and white with the pop of color… I want to redo this by changing to a bright green sweater and slingbacks…  The options for ways to just tweak this are endless!  

Dear Readers, I hope you all had a wonderful weekend… I have my neice for next week and am going to cook up some wonderful breakfast frittatas with her… I think I’ve posted the recipe before, but will do so again tomorrow in case you missed it.. I love them and instead of having them for breakfast, I use them for lunch.      I didn’t do anything fun or exciting this weekend, but sometimes it’s great to just relax!   I love down time!   I always say everything needs to be balanced.  Do you do a good job of balancing your busy life with some down quiet time????   


I am grateful for the weekend and down time with my family

I am grateful for everyone pitching in and helping to clean up today

I am grateful to be spending the week with my niece

I am the most grateful that I bought a book for my youngest and he immediately sat down and read aloud the first chapter as I was typing this post(.. (remember he struggled with reading and I homeschooled him these past two years to correct thatF!)

wow, you are a hardworking grocery shopper! how great that your son comes with. you look fresh and cute in this outfit, and I appreciate you sharing it with Visible Monday.

Hi, Tracey. I love how the colors in your pretty shoes tie in with your outfit. And I know I mentioned it already, but your hair is just so darn CUTE! Love it. How does it still look so good? Mine looks good when the stylist does it and then once I’m on my own…it doesn’t . ha

So funny that you mention my my hair as ever since using this stylist. .I just put my head down and blow it dry upside down and a few touches with curling brush and it always works…I swear he does something special.

You look gorgeous, fresh, and the whole combo is great!! congrats

Raspberry red is your color! It just pops against your skin and makes you look younger – who wouldn’t want that? 😉


Wow, thank you so much! i do love this color a lot, but never realized how good it looks on me.. one of the best things about blogging is photos and feedback from others.. thanks so much!

Wow, that DOES sound like a lot of work! I love the contrast of your printed shoes with the striped top. Very fun!

Thank you, my comfort level with pattern mixing has greatly increased.

Delicious and casual little outfit, but those shoes just make it all sing. So cute for running around, or just about any laid back occasion! Sweet!

Thank you! I love wedges for MOTG looks..

That gorgeous shade of red could make any black and white outfit look so bold and elegant. Those little wedges are adorable too! I love the floral print. Following you on Bloglovin’!

May the Force be with you.

Thank you so much for commenting, you made my day!
And also with you…

In church as a child when we would turn to each other and say, “May the peace of the lord be with you.” My parents friends would say,” May the force be with you” and make us giggle… thanks for inspiring that memory.
