Stripes and Brights…

Posted on: April 14, 2015

Well for today’s GYPO Style Challenge it was all about 

The Striped Dress and a Cardigan.  


So many color ways you could make this outfit work.

Since I purchased two of the Liz Claiborne NY dresses this season,

I knew I was going to go for the bright green for this part of the challenge. 

Choosing the hot pink Loft sweater I thrifted,  brought me back to me youth ,

when I rocked a more preppy version of this color combo from Izod.   

Of course Lily Pulitzer is big for this color combo. 


I probably could have just sported the white rope belt and forgone the necklace,

but I love this necklace from Steinmart several years ago.

Hey, I resisted being too matchy with my hot pink wedges, lol…

Preppy Izod alligator belt pink and green from the 80s retro


I  had this belt as a teen…


This is what I like about the challenge, 

to take the basic outfit idea and make it completely my own version.

These were all items I had from my closet, so didn’t buy for the challenge. 

Dear Readers, These pictures are clear evidence that I need to do something about my pasty winter legs!!!!


I am grateful that this cloudy day, didn’t dampen my spirit at all today! 

I am grateful that planning birthday surprises for my youngest this week, are all turning out just right. 

I am grateful for the fun of watching my son at his bowling lesson today in trying to increase his ball speed.

I am grateful for the fun of baking and icing cupcakes to take to the homeschool bowling group tomorrow.
