For the Love of Paisley…

Posted on: October 8, 2015

I’ve had this paisley top for a few years now and never tire of it. 

Today’s GYPO Fall Challenge Oufit was suppose to be 

denim jeans, a print top and a tan blazer.  


I didn’t want to wear blue jeans so soon because

I don’t wear them that often normally. 

So I decided to debut my new tan jeans bought for the season.

Of course they are my favorite jean designer, Diane Gilman

I really bought them in June in preparation along with a creme color and they are not available now. 

I actually had on a denim jacket to completely turn the outfit formula upside down. 

It was bowling day and that jacket kept me warm… 

Upon coming home I took it off at it was in the high 70’s .  


I love the gorgeous greens, pinks and purples in this top. 

I also liked that it gave me a chance to use my 31bag , 

a gift from a dear friend.  


I am gettting tired of all these outfits with pants.  

Tomorrow I’ve adapted a change to the suggested challenge formula,

to incorporate a skirt.  

It’s been hard adapting this to my warmer temperatures as well,

as some outfits have called for scarves and as much as I love a scarf,

I am just not ready to wear them yet. 


I am grateful that my oldest son was ok after his crazy accident this morning. He had is window cracked about two inches and when leaving his apartment complex a rock spit out of the lawn worker machinery and found that 2 inch open window and sent the rock flying right into the side of his forehead, breaking the skin and causing a nice lump.  

I am grateful for the fun my 19 year old college son is having cooking and the pictures he sends me of his ventures. Recently it was his made from scratch tomato soup and tonight it was making mashed potatoes with his new stand mixer. I feel blessed that he shares this journey with me!  

I am grateful that my daughter called me today(she had been calling me almost daily and had gone 5 days without doing so)  and despite living off of 5 hours of sleep daily is getting use to her crazy schedule of her master’s degree program and internship. She’s figthing a sinus infection and sounded very congested , but is an optimist like her mother looking at the bright side of things. 

I am grateful for a wonderful day of homeschool bowling with my youngest , who after a down turn in his game due to the summer break and his new ball, is back on the upswing with a great three game series. He is walking taller and has his confidence back. This was getting scary because on Monday when his Dad came home and offered to take him for practice, he refused and said he would rather homeschool…That was downright scary that he was ready to give this up.
