Loving Life after 50

In Love, War and Fashion, there can be no neutral

Can there in fact be neutral in Love, War and Fashion?? If we are smart there is.  

With love, maybe not when it comes to our own but there is no question with friends and family we should always be neutral, am I right??  Think about that for a moment, how many times has a friend experienced a bad breakup,  you provide that shoulder to cry on, the bottle of wine to drown the sorrows and then you should STOP there.  Do not comment, do not engage in trash talk, remain neutral and that way when they make up next week you have not said or done anything that is going to get you in trouble, so for Love yes there can be a neutral.

For War, well this one is a tough one for me, remain on the sidelines and do not engage…. hmmm not so much my style but it seemed to work well for Switzerland.  Switzerland home of great chocolate and great watches ( and fantastic skiing), you can at least make us pause for thought on the concept of neutral.

For Fashion, well what is neutral anyway…..Some neutral colors for clothing have traditionally been shades of  black, tan, brown, white, and nude. These colors can be mixed with almost any other color. Today I think leopard is a neutral and pearl is a neutral.  I mean seriously leopard and pearls go with everything right so by the standard fashion definition they are neutral. I think we can even add a little camo or khaki cuz have you ever seen anything not match that.. No I didn’t think so. So my definition of neutral is a little leopard and a lot of pearl mixed in with any other colour you want and for today that is basic black, showing that I can abide by some tried and true fashion rules.

Today I am matching up with Walking in Memphis in High Heels for the Neutral Look. I also will be visiting
