SIMPLE IMPACT / Winterizing Summer Skirts and Other Lessons Learned


I HAVE LEARNED SO MUCH ABOUT HOW TO WEAR COLORS THAT I WOULDN'T HAVE THOUGHT OF, FROM MY FELLOW FASHION BLOGGERS. MY IDEA BOOK KEEPS GROWING AS I SEE SO MANY SIMPLE, BUT COOL COLOR COMBOS AND NEW WAYS TO WEAR THINGS THAT WERE EARMARKED FOR GOODWILL. I WISH I COULD WEAR EACH AND EVERY NEW LOOK I SEE !  USUALLY THE MOST SIMPLE COMBOS MAKE THE BIGGEST IMPACT ON ME.


I have worn this summer skirt more this winter than I ever wore it during the summer!




As I love skirts so much, the trend of floral summery ones with winterized details has been my fashion passion this winter.


I have pulled out my "summer" bags to carry throughout winter, too.




Gray as a neutral . Who knew?!


Forrest green tights and a scarf seemed to give me a "grounded" feeling. (Thanks for the scarf, Mom!)
And no more matchey-matchey belt / shoe combos.
How freeing!!!



Ready for my close-ups!
I keep wondering why I don't have any Pencil skirts. Now as I am looking at this photo, it's because of my body shape. It's all about proportions. I have a narrow hip / small butt and my waist is thick- kinda like a boy's shape. I always wore men's jeans, too! When I try out pencils, the butt is saggy and the waist is too tight. That's why I never buy them! Ah-Ha!!!


My burgundy suede shoes (only $20.00) at Sears.

THE MOST EYE-CATCHING OUTFITS SEEM TO BE THE ONES THAT ARE SIMPLE AND MADE OF ONE PART IMAGINATION, ONE PART RE-WORKING WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE, BUT IN A FRESH, NEW WAY. (Although, they are really both coming  from imagination....)
ANYHOO,
HERE'S A PHOTO FROM backalleyfashion.blogspot.com THAT ROCKED MY WORLD !!!
