Black & Blue with Pattern Too!

Posted on: September 26, 2014

I love wearing black and blue together…

I also  love adding Pattern into outfits…

Pattern Pants are always a winner in my book!

These are my newest pants bought from HSN by  Diane Gilman,

fortunately for me, they were just $19.99 on clearance, but now aren’t available.

I wore this without the sweater until it got cooler in the early evening . 

I’ve worn this top before and love the sheer bottom that floats and moves , 

feels almost like a skirt…

I love tunics and skinny or straight pants, however once my tall boots come out I tend to wear them less

, as the proportions for my petite height don’t work.

 If  you’ve never photographed outfits, I highly recommend it because your mirror is a liar,

which is how I discovered the best proportions. 

I cringe to think how wrong I was dressing for my petite height prior to blogging…

I doubled up my necklaces and added hoop earrings and a headband for a lite boho vibe…

Notice the black tipping on my sweater…

It’s one I ‘ve had for a few years and keep thinking about getting rid of, but haven’t and I’m glad of that. 

My Aerosoles mules continue to be a favorite. 

Dear Readers. I am now in single digits on my countdown to Ireland. I can’t believe that the year long wait is almost over. I hope you haven’t tired of my year long anticipation and excitement.  I’m probably more excited than I was at first since we added in staying in 4 castles and a night in New York.  I have a lot to do before leaving to get the house ready for my oldest to come back home and stay with my youngest and for the animals to all have food and their needs met.  And if that wasn’t enough the 5 year light bulbs have all gone out and I need to go get more and change them all out..Wonder what else will pop up?   I look forward to the days of no kids and no pets to worry about, then again it will be here all too soon…

Gratitude

I am grateful that my oldest is getting a wonderful surprise, which arrived today,  for his birthday next week..

I am grateful that my 18 year is coming home for the birthday and I’ll get to see him before we go…

I am grateful that my youngest  son did the chores I assigned today without making me ask twice. 

I am grateful that the scale moved and I finally lost 2.5 lbs…hope that trend continues.

I also hope my new found love of late night walks continues. 

I am grateful that my nightly walks offer the added benefit of better sleeping ( a real issue in my world) 

I am grateful that my husband  sent the tablet he won to our daughter who really wanted one for school. 

I am grateful that my dress for Ireland came today and IT FITS!

Thank you and you have a fabulous weekend as well!

Blue and black combos look great together! You look very chic! So happy that you are going on your trip and hope you get to post some great pics! Love reading your grateful for comments at end. Very uplifting! God bless!

Well, you probably know what I’m going to say I love. Yep…that tunic and the necklaces. They look great with the pants. I was tickled to hear about your light bulbs deciding to go out now. I guess better now than after you’d left. I can just imagine you coming home from Ireland to find your kids living by candlelight. haha Oh, take lots of pictures. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to stay in a castle!

Yes, I can see my not so patient two boys dealing with the light bulbs and giggle at the thought… I am taking lots of pictures, on my camera, my husband’s tablet and his phone… If you haven’t already liked my Facebook page and want to see what I post while I am gone, you might want to do so..

Pretty outfit….love the pants! And you do see your outfits in a whole different light once your photographing them every day.

Thank you yes, wish I could shout from the mountain tops to women everywhere the value of taking outfit photos..It’s been an education…
