ahhhh yellow

Yellow and orange are my two favorite colors. This is a Cato ensemble that Mr Man bought for me a few years ago. I really like it and feel "fresh" in it, if that makes any sense. Isn't it funny how color can invoke feelings? I associate green with spring and think that it's a "clean" color. I tend to gravitate towards warm colors and love earth tone - I find them "peaceful". What colors bring you happiness or invoke positive feelings?

I Smile

I smile because this picture reminds me of the best vacation EVER that me and Mr Man took to California
 I smile because this is my most favorite memory of vacation in CA
 I smile because I got to spend time with ones that I love dearly at the below pool - just like when they were small....ahhh to have that time back again
I smile at the wonderful time I had with my children and son-in-law swimming - the water was FAB!!

Time Constraints

 I got this necklace back in 2006 on our vacation to California. I love that is has my name on it and that it is spelled correctly.
The necklace goes perfectly with this Cato outfit - I was having problems with the positioning of my camera and just gave up due to time constraints. I hope everyone had a nice and safe Memorial Day weekend. I was busy busy. Saturday I went to the Greenway at 6:30 am and walked 5.2 miles - then drove 80 minutes to pick up son. Then met daughter and son-in-law and we all went swimming, it felt like the old days when I used to take them swimming as children. Sunday I worked on school from 6:30 am to 4 pm GRRRR. Memorial Day had a nice cook out with the family and I made this fabulous but rich chocolate peanut butter that I got off the Cool Whip insert. It was YUMMY. Hope everyone has a great short week :)

Changing Elements

 I have had this dress for quite a few years and it's still hanging in there. I like the length and feel cute in this dress..well... cute.... might not be the correct adjective. I feel "churchy" in this dress but like adding the long bling bling necklace to it - for an added riske look LOL How do you turn outfits not quite your style into more of YOUR style?

Neutral Pops

 I know you are not surprised to see me another bright orange :) I think orange looks pretty good with many different colors, navy, brown, white, black, and gray. I love the way the orange pops against the neutral background. What color pops to you like to use with neutrals?

Bright Denim

 Here is another of the denim looking purchases that I paired with this delightfully bright kimona blouse. I really like navy and orange together but then again I pretty much like orange period. I adore wearing bright colors. I have settled back into my old eating habits and must get that under control or I won't be able to wear my new demin looking acquisitions. Is there a color that you have been gravitating towards this season?

Dress Denim

 These really aren't denim but they are denim looking. I have been wanting a pair FOREVER and while I wasn't really thinking of capris - found these at Kohl's and decided to give them a whirl. LOVE THEM even though though are little more fitted than I usually wear. So another weekend has flown by but the weather was gorgeous and got to ride on the back of bike - sore behind though and I managed to walk on the Greenway :)

Bottom Color Shy

This is not the most figure flattering but I like the colors and it's comfy and also a great excuse to wear that FAB brooch as a necklace again :) This is also one of the sheer blouses that I blogged about earlier in the week. I think this would also look really good with some white pants. Red would prob look good too but  I do not own any red pants, mmmm as a matter of fact I shy away from colored pants. I have a staple of colors that I alternate between blouses, black, brown, white, green, and blue are the colors I have in bottoms. I wonder if I shy away because I'm bottom heavy. Do you wear colored pants?

Pink Anchors

I picked this pink blouse up at a yard sale, many many years ago. It's a little too large in the breast area I use this necklace that I got a Kohls as an achor. This said necklace is currently broken and I am going to see if Kristine can repair once again for me. Notice sleeping beauty behind me? :)

I Smile

I Smile that because Saturday when I was walking on the Greenway I lost the battery to my camera but was able to order another one. The Greenway brings me so much peace that I really wasn't upset about losing it; however, if I would not have been able to replace I might have been singing another tune ;)

I Smile at my new acquisitions from JcPenny

I smile at my requested Mother's Day gift to discover that is another trilogy that I have been sucked into :) Since I have usually have the attention span of  a gnat LOL

 I hope you find many things to smile about this week

Assorted Sheer

I found this blouse at Kohls and I really like pairing with these wide leg pants that I found at JcPenney. I seem to have quite a few pieces of these sheer material blouses. As a matter of fact, just the past few weeks I have worn the following sheer blouses:
paired with denim

with my FAB Brooch/necklace :)

all alone

this is kinda sheer
 I seem to have an assorted selection of colors. Do you have a an assortment of colors in a particular fabric by accident?

Colors of Fall for Spring

This outfit to me has fall colors but I have this with my Spring/Summer clothes because of the sleeve. I really do love these colors.
 I got the blouse at Catos and think that it will pair up nicely with these shoes:

I hope all you mother's out there had a great Mother's Day. It was a rainy yucky day in Tn and hard to really get in the mood for festivities. I am glad we did our Mother's Day on Saturday instead as I'm currenlty fighting the blues. Hope everyone has a great week!!

Favorite Things

These shoes....
 this little demin jacket...
are some of my FAVORITE things. I think this outfit turned out really well, except fo the necklace. I think I need to put something a little smaller with this next time. I LOVE this color and the shoes really compliment this whole ensemble. What are some of your favorite things this season?

 This outfit makes me feel very dainty and feminine. I love how the lace peeks out from the bottom of the skirt - I purchased the crochet sweater in California and the rest of the outfit is from JcPenny
I adore this bird nest necklace, I purchased it from Uppercase Living. Is there an outfit or accessory that you feel very feminine?

I Smile

 I smile at the time to be in my swing is here :) As a matter of fact, I went to the Greenway for the first time in FOREVER over the weekend (forgot my camera) and I saw alot of my favorite birds, the Woodpecker and saw some more deer. I forgot how much peace the Greenway brings me.

 I smile at getting ready to go for a bike ride. Riding on motorcycle in the country is another way that I find so much peace. Especially right now with the honeysuckle in bloom - smells FABULOUS
This look should make anyone smile - it's like he is saying "Really, do you know what time it is?" HAHAH

I smile because I have sooo enjoyed these - I'm almost finished with the last book - I haven't seen the movie....YET :)

80's Rocker

Whitesnake was such a great band in the 80's with those videos... ahhhh those were the days. I truly believe the 80's was the best era, I loved the music and the clothes.

I got the tee at a Whitesnake concert, the capris at Kohls and the shoes at Massey's. The concert was a pretty good one always takes me back in time to my big hair or at least big for me. As a matter of fact, here is pic of me in the early eighties:

This is my friend Beth and me in front of my house - notice we are dressed alike :) my brother took the pic those were the days when I all had to worry about was what I was going to wear and what me and my friends were doing on the weekends. An of course, wishing my life away that I would hurry up and turn 18... now I'm wishing I could turn back time not sure I would like to go to 18 - I think 25 is a good age. If you could go back to any age, what age would you like to be right now?

Ross Finds

I really do like these - brown and red look perfect together

I really like this one piece blouse that I found at Ross
