Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Cardigan Sweater

Hello Friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

The weather was absolutely gorgeous and not having to cook gave me more time to be outside and enjoy it.  Saturday I was set up at Dutch Country Farmer’s Market, and although there was a lot of foot traffic I didn’t do as well as expected.  I did manage to sell a lot of books, some household items and a few pieces of jewelry, but the clothing that did not sell was donated to Goodwill.  Hubby and the boys chose Chinese Takeout for dinner so it was Shrimp Fried Rice, Steamed Vegetables and Chicken Mei Fun.

Today we all worked outdoors, hubby and the sons on the lawn and cars, me with setting out the patio furniture and cushions before doing the weekly grocery shopping.  I knew I wasn’t going to cook a Sunday dinner so instead we went to Farmer’s Famous Fish for sandwiches and fries.

It was another busy weekend for them with customers lining up and waiting from the time they opened to several hours after the published closing time of 3:30 p.m.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

It took me a while to get myself together after this morning’s encounter with my neighbor, but I’m glad that it happened because last night I dreamt about my aunt who passed away on Friday. However, the reason for being extremely late this morning was the multiple outfit changes, not the Polka Dot dress, that was a given but what to wear with it. I tried 2 different shirts over it,…2 different shirts underneath it…3 different color blazers before finally settling on this Aqua Cardigan.   I buttoned it and put on a pair of Mossimo flats then looked into the mirror, I immediately thought about FLOTUS Obama meeting The Queen of England.

Remember the flack she got for having the audacity to wear a sweater to meet The Queen for the first time – puh-leeze people – get a life! No matter your political affiliation, that was just stupid with a capital “S”, such an embarrassment for our country…just one of many…okay stepping down from the Soap Box now.

Polka Dots and Cardigan

I am so glad that the weather is finally warming up, the birds were chirping in all their glory..aah the sounds of Spring. 

Birds chirping - the sounds of Spring

All the snow is gone!

Today’s outfit seemed appropriate as a transition from Winter to Spring what do you think?

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay !

In the early 2000’s, I had a job that permitted me to work from home on Fridays and I enjoyed dressing down in jeans and slippers. I no longer have that job nor the luxury of working from home on Fridays, but it hasn’t stopped me from dressing down in jeans and slippers shoes!

ImageImage

I am almost head to toe Mossimo, even having a little fun changing the footwear this morning.  These shoes are part of my Target haul (here) and I want you to guess which pair made it to work today.

The cardigan sweater is from Ross and accessories from my jewelry box.

Which ones would you have chosen, the embellished flats or the Cap Toe heels?

Oh, BTW, this is the first time attempting a serious pattern mix – what do you think – Yay or Nay??

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

To all my friends in the New England territory I hope you are ready for the Nor’easter and that you’ll stay safe indoors this weekend.  I’m sure there will be several changes and cancellations of events for New York’s Fashion Week activities.  The parade in New Rochelle that was scheduled Saturday to celebrate Ray Rice and The Ravens’ Super Bowl win was postponed until March 2nd.

We are getting rain with a chance of flurries beginning around midnight with little to no accumulation   I don’t mind snowstorms that occur on the weekends late a night because we are safe indoors and not on the road with the crazies.

My son wasn’t too happy taking the pics this morning which is puzzling because I was the one standing out in the rain!

 

I was playing around with the photo editing with PhotoScape which I like better than PicMonkey and Pixl.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay – Fri-Yay!!

Our local forecast was way off, we only got a few flakes early this morning and now the sun is shining on this a beautiful crisp Winter’s day. What are your plans for the weekend, will you be doing something fun outdoors? Not me, tomorrow I’ll be stuck inside my closet thanks to a mini avalanche that occurred last night.
Less than a minute after hanging up a shirt the top rack came crashing down taking down the one beneath it as well. Thankfully I had just stepped back otherwise I could have been hit in the head with falling purses! (don’t laugh, it was a hard hat zone!)  I could only just look up and stare, hubby said, “you have too many clothes” – bite your tongue man!  He offered to re-do my closet with sturdier material so tonight off to Lowes we go. I wish my closet looked like his…..

and not like this!!!!

Today’s outfit was born out of the chaos in my closet. The scarf which was hidden on a shelf along with the boy’s baby blankets and box of teeth – (what do you do with baby teeth?) was the palette.  Most of my shoes are covered underneath all those shirts so I am wearing a pair of the loafers I just bought from Target.  They were still in the spare bedroom and had never made it into the closet along with these purple jeans.

All in all I think I made the chaos work for this casual Friday – what do you think?

Hello Friends and Happy Monday.

I hope you had a nice weekend and are starting off your work week in a positive, stress free way!  This morning standing on a sunny deck I couldn’t help but think of Spring with the forecast of temps to rise above 56 degrees by the end of the week. I am however, not naive to think that we won’t be hit with snow and this deck will be covered before the end of February!

On Friday I stopped at GW Boutique (Goodwill) and thrifted a few items all for $3.75, including this sleeveless, black and white tank. It was new, with the tags from Marshall’s still attached. Goodwill is also getting bougie because some of their tags read “Goodwill Boutique”!
