Wearin O” The Green…

Posted on: March 17, 2015

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  

Green use to be my favorite color and for the longest time I owned a green leather sofa….

I always think of that sofa when I wear my green leather jacket , my birthday present to myself last year..

My color is no longer available, but check out this season’s version in Blue

I don’t wear blue jeans very often… 

These are Levis that I’ve had forever and once my weight gets back down and I maintain it for awhile

I need to be on the hunt for a perfect pair, it’s the one whole in my wardrobe that I didn’t even try to fill, as I wanted my weight to stay in the same range for a year before indulging in that illusive item.  

I set that as my reward.. so guess I am starting back to square one…

One of my reason’s for loving green is that it was my father’s favorite color….

Silly, but even as a 12 year old who had just lost her father, I remember finding joy on the day of

his funeral when the cars that came to take us to the service  were green and so was the hearse…

IMG_3361Isn’t it funny that I sat down to write with nothing in mind

and out came my connection to my father 

 through fashion and color…

Dear Readers, Since I post pictures the day after I wear an outfit… I will be wearing another green outfit since it will actually be St. Patrick’s Day… A different shade that doesn’t hold the memory this one does… 

The remainder of this week I will be beginning a

Style Challenge by Angie at You Look Fab for her forum members

to style outfits using 5 different Picasso paintings as inspiration.  

Gratitude

I am grateful for my walking partner who is gung-ho and up for walking daily, and even suggested bike riding together today.

I am grateful for my Fitbit and the motivation to get 10,000 steps each day, it motivated me to jog in place while cooking and my going for a walk to the store twice helped too… I was suppose to buy Feta and accidentally bought blue cheese…

I am grateful to my dearest friend and hope that I can take her up  on her invitation for a sleepover and going to church with her. It will be a nice end to the week after sending both my daughter and son back to college over the last two weeks.. so hard to do…

I am grateful that I remembered to get the chocolate graham crackers and cool whip to make the one point faux ice cream sandwiches to keep me on track this week.  I forgot several times to buy these….

I love how you paired the heels with these jeans!! I find great jeans at the thrift stores (so I can have a couple pairs when the weight vacillates). Jodie
