Dolman Sleeves and Green for Fall

Posted on: October 25, 2013

I love that green is such a strong color for the season,  as it is one of my favortie colors

that stems from something very personal….

Linking up with Simple Sequins Fashion Friday  and Penniless Socialite 


My father’s favorite color was green and it may seem silly but at the tender age of 13 when he died I found comfort that his hearse was green.  I snagged a green shirt of his before my mother sent his clothes off to his cousin and slept in it, later gave it to my sister and told her to use it as a smock for her arttwoek since my father and her shared that talent and spent so much time drawing toghether.  

Funny how even a color itself can hold such memories! 


I announced on my blog that TJ . Maxx had gone online as soon as I found out.

This fabulous dolman slleeve top with green houndstooth print around the collar and down the sleeves is one of three things I purchased from my first TJ Maxx online ventrue.

My top is no longer available , remember I buy things on clearance most times…. So I decided to show you this dolman sleeve dress on clearance with two color choices  for just $20.00 and  this top which comes in three colors for just $15.00

So Dear Readers, Do you like a Dolman Sleeve? .

Just a reminder, I do not receive any benefits to suggesting anything on my blog and do so for your convienence.


I love that I just happened to have the same shade of green long sleeved t-shirt to layer under this.  

The paisley skinny cords were purchased from Kohl’s clearanced for just $7.20.  I love getting things off season at such great prices. I may have had to wait a few months to wear these, but it was well worth the savings.  

 Dear Readers, thank you for letting me share my love of green and the memories that go along with it. One of the reasons I can’t wait to see Ireland is due to the vast green lands!  I will definitely have to take advantage of that for background photos and plan outfits that will work well with that background!  

Writing about green and Ireland and making the words my signature orange, made my wonderful ADD brain think of one of my favotire Irish Rovers Songs….

The Orange and the Green 


I am grateful that today was a much better day with the hot flashes( not gone but much better)  and that the wicking work out gear I bought as PJ’s worked well for the night sweats last night.   FYI also taking Estroven with Melantonin for night and Mood & Memory version for daytime.  Have ordered Hawthorn capsules which where suggested to work as well.  

I am grateful that I am opting to go to bed earlier in order to make sure I get enough sleep and that my children are pitching in to clean the kitchen! 

I am grateful for my ADD brain and that I finished wrting this blog listening to a variety of Irish Rovers songs, which are all just so whimsical and fun!

I am grateful that I came up eith a new plan for homeschooling that my son seems willing to embrace – I made  a chart on the white board with how many lessons in each subject he must complete in a week and have asked him to decide his own daily schedule making sure it is all done by Friday.  I know that when my children took responsibility for their own education they all took pride and did better! 

Dear Readers, Have a Wonderful Weekend and I hope you all spend it to bring joy to your lives and recharge for the next week!!!!

Oh Tracey, isn’t it interesting how the colors stay with us with their comfort or not? I had that correlation with red for the longest time, more of not liking it due to a death and natural disaster. Then I thought wow, that is silly, red is such a warm and loving color, so now I embrace red. Great post. Thank you for linking up with Fashion item Friday, too. You ROCK!

I loved hearing your story about green. You have such a tender heart to attach such deep meaning to a color. And it’s very special you were able to have a green shirt of your father’s to comfort you when you needed it. How amazing that the hearse was green, that’s an uncommon color for a hearse.

Yes that was a great treat and small comfort to all of us. The funeral homes colors are green and white. Thank you for your kibd insightful comments.

Cute, cute, cute! When this page opened in front of me, I just had too smile!
