Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘Color blocking

Hello friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!  You know the days when you put on your clothes and something just doesn’t fit right, or in my case fits too tightly, well that was how my morning started.  As you know on Sunday nights I prepare my outfits for the week but today it was a “pull from the closet” morning.  I put on and then changed 3 skirts, 1 pair of pants, 1 pair of capris and 2 tops because none of them fit right…all too tight!! Not enough “labor” over the holiday, too many Michelobs and Seagrams so now it’s back to the elliptical with a vengeance and summer indulgences are a distant memory!!

After all those changes this is what I ended up wearing, an outfit that is color blocked with my Sorority colors Royal Blue and Gold, (ΣΓΡ ~ Sigma Gamma Rho), and hubby’s Fraternity colors Purple and Gold, (ΩΨΦ ~ Omega Psi Phi).

Top – Goodwill// Skirt – Old Navy// Belt – Rainbow Shops// Wedges – Marshalls

Bangles (separated ) by a large bracelet – Rainbow Shops// White Stone Ring – Avon // Earrings – Samsbeauty.com

I think I hid those extra pounds nicely!!

With all the rain this month the grass was saturated and my shoes and toes got a little wet, but fortunately they dried before I got to work.  I recently purchased this dress from Goodwill because I liked the criss-cross back and the shoes match it perfectly.  I love the colors of Spring.

Ring & Bracelet – my jewelry box

I’ve been dying to wear this dress since I ordered it in March from Avon and when the weather turned hot I was afraid that I would have to wait until the Fall.  Today’s weather is rainy and cool, a perfect day to wear long sleeve  and I love how they fall below my wrists.

The color blocked wedges from Urbanog.com are a perfect match!
