Dressed for Bowling…

Posted on: February 26, 2015

My Dear Readers , I committed to a week of Dresses and Skirts, 

and when today came along, I wanted to wear my purple snow boots

and decided to give up the idea of a dress for bowling day…

Our snow from yesterday melted away as the day went on…

It will be replenished tonight as another storm heads our way with up to 8 inches…

Which I know is laughable to northerners, but even with just two inches yesterday we had hundreds of accidents and people going off the road.    We even had one that hit a local school bus full of kids yesterday afternoon…

So, styling this outfit from the ground up, 

I knew wanted the purple poncho and thought patterned pants would be fun. 

The yellow sweater is a thrifted lambswool and angora, so soft and warm!

I really love the purple and yellow color combo…

I have a pair of subdued purple animal print jeans that I’d love to pair with this combo in the future

 In this outfit, I definitely didn’t feel the same sassy and spunky vibe

that my dresses have given me this week… 

I did however feel much more comfortable bowling in pants…

This poncho if from Old Navy and one I thrifted,

I like the shorter length of this for easy styling with my petite height. 

Gratitude

I am grateful that my son bowled his highest came to date today. 

I am grateful to the parent who told the bowling alley so they could announce it over the loudspeaker, as he felt so proud and happy.  

I am grateful that my son found something he likes and is willing to work hard to get better, this is a first for this child! 

I am grateful that the guys went outside and a snowball fight after bowling ( it’s moments like that , when I notice the loss of his brother away at college) 

I am grateful that my son so willingly and with a positive attitude interrupted his xbox live game to take my blog photos, (he is normally agreeable, but this felt special)  

I am grateful for an hour long phone call from my daughter and the joy it brings, as well as the tears it brings, as I remember my mother and miss her dearly.

Love the purple and yellow together! I like the way you created your own style challenge to wear dresses or skirts this week – but, yes, bowling would be tricky in a dress! I feel like I need to do a style challenge of my own; it seems like I keep wearing the same version of skinny jeans and sweater. But that’s probably because I keep wearing the same version of skinny jeans and a sweater 🙂

Looking forward to more style inspiration from you! Stay safe in the snow!

Thank you Yvonne, yes creating challenges to get through winter and lift my spirits really did help this week.

I don’t think I’ve ever worn purple and yellow together, I must try this combination! I loved reading through your gratitide list!
