Winter Style Challenge Begins

Posted on: December 15, 2015

Today began the long awaited, GYPO Winter Style Challenge

At least for some, hard to do so when your temperatures are in the mid-70’s. 


Today’s look was suppose to include a tunic top, fur vest and knee high riding boots. 

I chose a lace top, and open weaved cardigan that isn’t big on warmth. 


It feels nice to get dressed as, I have not been daily this past two weeks. 

I have a feeling I am going to be making lots of subsitutions for the GYPO challenge outfits. 

That’s not surprising as I’ve always gone against the grain.  

I think my dear mother is responsible for that, I remember one year when I was in 7th grade and a madrigal in chorus for the Christmas concert where we were suppose to wear white blouses and red long skirts.  My mother had made me a red-gingham checkered one as my Christmas church outfit , so we got permission for me to wear it.  

Since I was the one who spoke up and introduced songs, it made sense that I dressed slightly differently.

I have two other oufits I wore recently but didn’t post yet, so here goes.


This was what I wore last Wedsneday for my son’s homeschool bowling day. 

I love my Kate & Mallory jacket and ponte knit leggings.  

My tunic is a Burlington Coat Factory find.  


This was my look for Parent’s Night Out dinner

and my first outing after my fall and subsequent concussion. 

I love the long knit Susan Graver Cardigan and have it in chocolate brown as well as the navy. 

I have a small on in this sweater and always size down in that clohing line from QVC. 


I am grateful for the support of family, friends, readers and online community members who all had compassion and wished me a speedy recovery from my concussion and fall.  

I am grateful that I am feeling much better and sleeping ok. 

I am grateful that my son finished his exams today and will be home tomorrow. 

I am grateful that my son away at college has been playing games on the Iphone together with his younger brother, as the anticipation of having his siblings come back has really made him feel lonley this week. 

I am grateful for a fun football weekend where both our teams won and the comraderie of our son who set his study schedule around watching both our games to stay connected with us… 

I am grateful that my youngest buckled down and finished Lord of the Flies.

That story about the madrigal reminds me of our saying: “the nut doesn’t fall from from the tree”. I love the tunic cardigan & burgundy jeans!! jodie
