Two Great Challenge Looks…

Posted on: February 8, 2016

My Spin Off Private Facebook Group has really been 

helping to inspire some great outfits this weekend!  

Saturday was Dark Florals….

My beloved Isaac Mizrahi leather that was a highly eleusive wish item

for several years.  I actually broke my no buy in November to purchase this and have 

no regrets and the full support of DH who knew how long I searched for the right one. 

This color says dark charcoal, but looks black to me!

Funny , but when I see this outfit, I think everthing except the handbag which was a gift,

are all online purchases, the blouse is Liz Claiborne NY via Qvc ( I am wearing a small)  , the pants are Old Navy Pixie’s

and my fringe boots are Non- Rated via Amazon.

I love that in waiting for this jacket that I got something unique and special and 

best of all not a classic motto jacket, which is what I thought I wanted… 

I was lucky to get it when it was on a 6 month payment plan and am still paying it off… 

Sunday’s Outfit Inspiration from my group was to wear footwear that you love

but hasn’t been worn enough recently.

The creme boots I bought last year, fit that dexcription perfectly.  

Having turtlenecks, that I still giggle about finding at BJ’s , in my wardrobe this season

opens up the door for me to go boho and wear my beloved tunic that I’ve had for several years now 

and had to reserve in warmer temps with the tank it came with.

I love wearing creme in Winter and DH loves my creme boots, 

so this group is inspiring me to have fun with my outfits recently….

 These are from Chadwicks and only remain in a few sizes… 

Dear Readers, Do you have a footwear item that  this could spark you to style for a look this week ?  

While my group is private for only style challenge alummi, I hope my fun in finding outfit inspirations

can spark some joy in your own daily venture to be creative with what’s in your closet….

I think we could all use some Outfit Inspiration! 

Gratitude

I am grateful that this Sunday morning, I woke up, look at the time and saw 10:01 am, meaning I had a full 8 hours of sleep , a true rarity for this woman who loves sleep and has been struggling due to menapause.  

I am grateful for a fun phone call with my daughter last night as she anticipates coming home this Thursday and a dream she shared that the entire family would attend a Boston Comicon convention in costume with her in the next year or two. 

I am grateful that when I turned and shared that dream with DH and DS , they were both on board and we have that to look forward to… If you are a regular reader you know I put high value on the anticipation of future events or trips as a key strategy for happiness.. 

I am grateful that prior to the Superbowl that we made a run to Home Depot and got a new garbage disposal.  

I am extremely grateful for my hardworking , successful husband and never take for granted his contribution to our family which allows me to be home and available to homeschool our youngest. I am grateful for this every day, so bear with me if this one gets repeated every so often, lol…

Who doesn’t have footwear that gets forgotten? It’s the only disadvantage to having a lot of shoes—not enough time to wear them all!! I love both outfits, but the cream one is so lovely!! jodie

Thank you! Isn’t it fun to break out a favorite forgotten pair of shoes? I felt very 70 ish in that look and Angie from YouLookFab agreed! Of course 70’s style is in so I got her approval…

Love the leather jacket and the boots, too!

Thank you! Need to wear both more often…
