Lace & Striped Neutrals

Posted on: October 2, 2014

This outfit would be a good candidate for adding the pop of color in a pump 

that I showed earlier in the week…

I , however give you a peek and my real life,

Of Mom on the Go…

Tomorrow will be my last post before heading off on my three week Ireland Vacation.

If you haven’t already liked my Facebook page and want to see pictures and updates while I am gone,

Please do so now…


The leaves are beginning to Fall…

I am wondering if they will all be gone by the time I come home from my trip….


An outfit of neutrals doesn’t have to be boring…

Adding a pattern with both the lace and the stripes takes this up a notch.  

In addition to pattern the lace also adds the element of texture. a great way to 

infuse interest when wearing neutrals.

Adding shine with a trio of gold bracelets and metallic flats also adds interest…

Forgoing a necklace  was intentional as to not be too busy..


I am rather pleased with the serenity this outfit brought to me day..

Don’t like how stiff I look in this photo, but wasn’t a good day for pics, so using what I have…

I am beyond over tired and quite frankly over this dumb 6:30 wake up, which I can only surmise is menopause related…

Tonight, I am taking Melatonin in hopes of breaking this cycle and getting more than 5-6 hours of sleep…

Wish me Luck , cause by afternoon I am not functioning well…


I am grateful for a great group of homeschooling families and the camaraderie in our bowling group.

I am grateful that one of the mom’s is going to help with transportation , so my son doesn’t miss three weeks of bowling while I am gone.

I am grateful that my oldest stopped by today and we went over what he needed to know before leaving him in charge.

I am grateful that I paid all the bills today despite my exhaustion.  

I am grateful that I thought to get bungee cords to strap our carry-ons onto our checked bags for easier maneuvering. 

I am grateful my husband was able to visit a sick friend in the hospital and that his job allows for this during the day…

You look lovely. I love the lace top paired with the stipe cardigan. You have a great sense of knowing how to mix patterns. This was a really pretty neutral outfit and I really liked it. Blessings on your trip to Ireland. Enjoy!

Thank you! I still remember how fearful mixing patterns was at first…that’s the fun of fashion, stepping outside your comfort zone to see what else works…
Thank you for the the blessings!

I just got that same lace top but in a greyish pink. You look lovely. Have a grand time in Ireland!

Thank you-I bought mine last Christmas time and gave my daughter a white one – have fun styling yours!

Another great outfit, the colors are so soft and pretty. Love the shoes.

Okay…well computer blitz and I lost my whole comment so I’ll make this short…. Love the outfit and all the pieces you chose for it work so well together. You and DH have a wonderful time on your trip. I can’t believe a year went by already and it’s here! xo 🙂
