A Column of Color with a Topper

Posted on: December 15, 2015

Today’s GYPO Style Challenge Outfit 

was the most unlike my style as you could get , 

so of course I had to make adjustments

as to ensure that I had that “Pep in My Step” 

that I strive to achieve daily when putting together my oufits.  


The outfit was suppose to be black top and bottom with grey cardigan and red plaid shoes. 

I woke up this morning and checked the Facebook group for early birds who posted and knew 

immediately that my fears regarding this outfit were real.  

It was just too bland for my liking, I truly like color and pattern too much to be happy with that.  

Adding my leopard cardigan and even tying the sweater added an extra feature. 

I will say that without the GYPO Style Challenge, I most likely would have paired this with black pumps or ankle boots. 

The addition of my floral Aerosoles wedges really is a nice change from my norm.  


Both my sweater and necklace are from Susan Graver’s line via QVC

My necklace is sold out , but I love the sparkle and here is her current line of necklaces. 

She also has a lot of cardigans available for this season. 

Only these two photos , as I didn’t like any of the other ones ,

it’s hard to take photos when you aren’t happy with your weight… 


I am grateful that my son made it home tonight, after calling about some car trouble this afternoon. 

I am grateful for a silly night getting Chik Fil A and touring Whole Foods together. 

I am grateful that with my son home from college, the rabbit is back as well. 

I am grateful for Ibuprofen and how it helped my shoulder, neck and back pain today. 

I am grateful for my burst of dancing, which didn’t help my aches and pains , but was fun while it lasted .

Here is the link to the song that was on the Today Show this mornig and lifted my spirits.

I’m not doing the style challenge…but I’d agree that I need more color! It’s my first thought when I see the dark outfits, but I am trying to widen my style choices–so maybe I’ll try it one of these days!
Love the choice of the shoes!! jodie
