Paisley and Polk a Dots

Posted on: September 29, 2013

I have been waiting for a long time to debut these corduroy, paisley embossed Skinnies

Linking up with Watch What I’m Wearing

Sylvia at 40PlusStyle  challenged us to do a  21 day 10 minute meditation program beginnning Oct. 1.

It’s suppose to help with weight loss, but I love that it is guided meditaton for my ADD brain…

I consider these and their green twins one of my best scores since I found them clearanced online at Kohl’s .


 I paired them with my Walmart polk-a -dot sweater.  I  decided to add the silver tassel necklace to create a vertical line which I think helps when you are a petite heigth.  It’s a  trick I use quite often and the reason I love scarves so much.  


I almost wore my nude pumps but resisted the matching instinct and opted for the subtle grey plaid print instead.  

I even resisted a matching Aigner purse in tan and burgundy… I guess that is what a year of blogging does to you… or that could be that the brown purse was ready to go and I was off to go grocery shopping… 

Dear Readers, I hope you all  had a great weekend.  We had a very low key one ourselves.  I spent hours reorganizing my closet for Fall only to see that next week we will be experiencing temperatures in the 80′ again…. Let’s see how clever I can get with all my sandals packed away…I did realize that I have a lot of clothes and so many ways to mix and match them that I could not buy a thing and never wear the same outfit twice for quite awhile…. So, I think that is my challenge for these next seasons.   I will however say, that I would like a few more shoes and would not hesitate to pick up a pair or two should I find ones that fit my wish list.  


I am grateful for the commitement and strength my husband has for our family.

I am grateful for weekends and the much needed break.

I am grateful that my husband is taking great care of himself and working out at the Y.

I am grateful for wonderful friendships and the strong women in my life. 

I am grateful for humor and the ability to laugh every day!

That’s a really cute outfit, and I like the sweater. You mentioned petite size; how tall are you? I’m 5’2″, and it is hard to find clothes and accessories small enough. I like thrifting because some things have already been shrunk down to my size. 🙂

I am 5’3 and can wear petite tops and like I’ve done with this sweater, quite often cuff tops. When it comes to pants I have longer legs and can not wear any petites.

You look taller in your pictures. You are lucky to have longer legs. I have very short legs (some petite pants are too long) as well as a short waist. Many people tell me that I’m tiny.

Yes, I can thank my 6’4″ grandfather who married a petite 5’2″ spirited woman! Proportions are something I learned quickly from taking photos. i was dressing all wrong before blogging.

Really great look! The skinnies fit you so well, glad to hear you have them in another color too.

Thank you, my husband loves this color and the fit on these and couldn’t stop complimenting both.

Great new pants, Tracey….and wonderful colors for fall.

These pants are fabulous and the polka dot sweater is amazing! I love that it’s from Walmart too 🙂

Thanks, just proof that you can find fashionable pieces anywhere.
