Jive Dancer…

Posted on: September 25, 2013

I went for a black and white look today and thought I would be a purist and not add a pop of color…

Then,  my orange purse caught my eye and I wondered, 

“Can I wear black, orange and white and not look like Halloween? ”

I added the hat for my bad hair day , after a lengthy homeschooling day

My hat belongs to my daughter who didn’t want it anymore.

I am debuting the second pair of my new oxfords and gotta say DH is not fond of them…

In fact he kept looking at them and finally said, ” They are great for blog photos,but unless it’s a costume , not for real life.” 

Oh well, I guess they won’t be going out for date night…

Not great lighting at the time I took photos, but real life doesn’t always jive with blogging..

I purposely used the word jive because I feel like I should be on stage dancing with the combo of the hat and shoes…

Dear Readers, So thanks for the compassion, it was much needed and appreciated. . .  I still have no relief or outcome, but tomorrow that changes…( Weds)

I know the hat made this somewhat “costumey”  , but other wise, Did I succeed in adding in the orange without feeling like Halloween? 


I am grateful for the support of friends.  

I am grateful that this day is almost over and I am heading to bed, 4 hours of sleep last night…

I am grateful that I had such a fun outfit that made me feel like dancing….

I am grateful for my angels that guide me.

Any outfit that makes you want to dance is a winner! I love the shoes and think they could work in real life. Keep everything simple with just some neutrals/basics and let the shoes be the star.

I am liking your whole outfit. I sometimes worry about looking Halloweenish if I wear orange and black, but love the combo itself, and you rocked the look. And love the hat!

I think you succeeded. Orange and black together don’t always scream Halloween to me, especially if the orange is more muted. Amen to the real life not always jiving with blogging. 😉

Thank you. I really need to get better at having some backups available when days are harried….

What a shame your husband wasn’t a fan of the shoes! My oxfords are the most comfortable shoes I own 🙂
