Fashion at 50 Monday


Can you believe it's Monday already?  I had a pretty productive weekend, what about you?  Of course, that doesn't mean I stuck to my to do list. 

I did manage to do a little cleaning and purging in the living room but the wiping down of walls has been pushed to this week.  I got sidetracked in my craft studio (not doing crafty things unfortunately) but cleaning, purging and organizing.  When I took over the closet in the guest room I unhoused a mess of crafting goodies and some less than attractive plastic stacking drawers.

I think I came up with a creative and pretty way to incorporate them in to my studio but it is still a work in process.  One that I will share just as soon as it's done.

Our weather this weekend was picture perfect for early fall in Southern California  It was just cool enough to need a light sweater for church on Sunday.  I decided to put together something using one of my favorite color combos, yellow and blue.  I found a few options on my pinterest boards for inspiration. 

The only thing I splurged on was the pretty yellow and white scarf...less than $5.00 at Walmart.  I love it and I love how it completed the outfit.

Monday's are my house cleaning days and I have to get back to my work in the living room, so that pretty much takes care of today.  I will be making a quick trip to the thrift store some time this week to look for small oil paintings but not until I have a load to donate first.

I hope you have some fun things planned for the week.  Want to share?

  4. You're looking very pretty in yellow and blue, Patty. You're making me think about how I need to sort through my clothes and jewelry for new combinations.

  5. Blue and yellow are so classic.

    Yesterday afternoon I took an art class and decided to dress better than my yoga pants and a t-shirt. I stood on the corner waiting for my friend to pick me up and laughed when a neighbor turned down our lane and commented on how dressed up I was. I had on jeans, a white tee, an orange sweater, an orange necklace and orange flip flops. But, I did feel a bit dressed up after a summer of shorts and tees.

    And now I am off to work in my daughter's garden after a walk on the beach. I guess I should clean, but I know the dirt will wait for me.

  6. I love blue and yellow together. Cute outfit! Today is my cleaning day also so I'm trying to catch up on blogs so I can start. See where my priorities are? LOL


  7. I love how you use these boards for inspiration. I have just inherited a load of new-to-me clothing and I am just starting to think of ways to mix them up.
