Cobalt Love…

Posted on: April 8, 2015

I am happy that cobalt is still a strong color for the season. 

I love it and think it pairs well with so many colors.

I recently thrifted this color blocked black and cobalt tank.  

I bought the cobalt shoes last season from Payless Comfort Plus Line. 

Here is this year’s offerings in that line. 

I am loving the yellow ones, but my shopping addiction is on overload for Spring so I am resisting.

This yellow statement necklace is the one I bought on a walk last week to Burlington ,

my youngest went with me and helped me pick this one out.

My pants are Old Navy Pixie Pants and I have to say I am so glad I tried pants from them,

as I love them and have bought several this past year.  

I swear the majority of my pants are now Diane Gilman Jeans, Old Navy Pants and a few Spring soft pants from F21.  

I do have a few other sources, but these are my favorites.

I have to laugh at this photo, as more often than not in this pose, my heel comes out of my shoe and my observant teen photographer usually notices and tells me to adjust….

Today, however I asked him to leave a computer game to take my photos, so I guess it’s to be expected. 

Dear Readers, As a stay at home mother I don’t get to wear heels as often as I would like, so today when my son was suppose to have a private bowling lesson, I took advantage of it.  Since it is Spring Break, the coach cancelled, thinking it would be too crowded to get a lane.  My husband was at an appointment this morning when he got the cancellation call and instantly took the opportunity to ask us to go out to lunch.   I loved that I was dressed and feeling great. I never take for granted or forget the times when I didn’t take as good care and get dressed daily and am so glad I’ve forever changed that. I can see how happy it makes my entire family, as they all never cease to compliment me.  

Gratitude

I am glad for the cancellation of the bowling lesson and time for my husband to spend with us. 

I am grateful for a trip to BJ’s  and finding a new maxi skirt there. 

I am grateful for the kind responses to yesterday’s post. 

I am grateful that a few more people joined my Facebook Group looking for support to lose some winter weight.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/594960117306992/

I am grateful that my husband supports my love of fashion and compliments my efforts.

Great outfit! I love cobalt & black together & you look great in cobalt. I need to try the shoes at Payless 🙂 And I have never heard of the jean brand…need to check into them. Lunch out is always fun!

Yes, Gina, lunch out is great. One thing I miss about being a homeschooling mom these days is the lunches with friends.

I will always love cobalt blue no matter if it’s on trend or not. I love it paired with the yellow necklace. Sounds like you had a wonderful day!

I am right there with you about the cobalt color, then again I remember when it was called royal blue, lol…

Bright blue is so pretty- and it looks great on you! 🙂
