Loving Life after 50

OOTD and a Kaleidoscope of Colour

Back to the grind, actually nice to get back to the office,  this weekend required far to much physical labour on my part.  Taking down Christmas Decorations, is there anything more sad.

Possibly a bad hair day, or a run in my tights  or mismatched shoes , no seriously I always feel that twinge of sadness followed by the twinge of I would rather be going to the dentist then taking all this crap I mean these lovely decorations down. That wonderful feeling of excitement and wonderment when you unwrap each ornament or open each bin does not remain when it is time to unravel everything and take it down.

  Then you look around at your bare house and think wow I don’t remember it feeling so bland, then within hours your house once again feels like your own.

Start of a new workweek and another new outfit,  love after Christmas OOTD, always have so much to work with. Today’s outfit is thanks to Banana Republic and by thanks i do not mean they gave it to me, oh I so wish that was true, it just means I am revealing another great find from my Holiday Shopping Spree.

This is an unbelievable steal of a deal, marked down and then placed in clearance and the 50% off that so this dress cost me $6.97 can you believe it,  the tights cost more than that.
Necklace set and bracelets from G.H. Bass, Dress Banana Republic, Shoes from Shoe Dazzle and tights Old Navy. ( Cardigan that I always have to have with me in case the office gets cold, Old Navy)

  • Love your whole ensemble. That dress was a steal by any assessment, but especially from BR! Good catch!

    • Gotta Love BR and Factory Outlets after the Holidays.

  • Love the print on that dress! It actually looks like BCBG, I had to scroll back up and made sure it said Banana! Great deal!
    Thanks for sharing this with Manic Monday! And no worries about the sideways pic! It adds suspense to your link 🙂

    • I am such a BR addict at the moment and finding that type of deal was unbelieveable

  • Ohh what a great Banana find! Not only is taking down the decorations sad but it is also a pain!

    • Undecorating is one of the worst jobs ever, wish I could snap my fingers

  • Love your blue tights! The color is so rich

    Away From Blue

    • Thanks, I love the print almost a 70's throwback with the polyester type material

  • So mod, so cute, so you! Love it especially well with your tights and little wedges. Made for each other, these items!
    Taking down the decorations can be sad … go buy yourself some flowers to ease the heartache!
