Loving Life after 50

Say No to Bullying & A Labour of Fashion 8

On one hand the fact that National Anti Bullying Day falls on a Wednesday and calls for us all to wear pink is a bit ironic… I mentioned this in the car this morning, stating that the famous line from Mean Girls was On Wednesday’s We Wear Pink.  yet Kent’s response was, that’s why it is important for us to wear pink on a Wednesday then.  Two sides of the coin, is it a brilliant message or a huge faux pas??? I think I will err on the glass half full side and believe as Kent did that the day was picked particularly for the significance of Pink on Wednesdays.  Did you wear PINK?  Me any excuse.

Target Plaid Pants and Plaid Coat
and yet another excuse to mix patterns, this time two different plaids which totally should not work together but a combination that I am totally in love with. ( plus when paired with pastels how could one not love any outfit was my believe.  Just a Classic Pant with a cashmere sweater and blouse,  a perfectly understated simple work day outfit…. ok maybe until you add the plaids and then a pair of silver shoes

Coat and pants Target, Anne Taylor Cashmere
Strangely as I reflect upon my outfit today I want to cry, Coat and Pants are from Target so now I wonder where ever am I going to find cool affordable pieces like this.. oh why oh why have my fellow Canadians forsaken that Oasis I call Target.

  • Love your plaid on plaid ensemble! Target is such a great place to get cool, stylish pieces for great prices. Sorry that they will no longer be in your neck of the woods in Canada! I would also feel very upset about that!

  • Like you, ANY excuse to wear pink. It's my favorite color. You look amazing in this plaid on plaid ensemble. And those silver oxfords… yeeess! Thanks for hosting the linkup 🙂

  • I had no idea it was anti-bullying week. It is a great cause and close to my heart, too. And oh my you own a gorgeous plaid coat that matches that amazing plaid suit. It looks great with pink. Bright pink makes me happy and I have worn it a lot lately. =)

    Thanks for the link-up too, beautiful.

  • I had no idea yesterday was Anti-bullying day. You sure know how to rock your plaid. I don't need an excuse to wear pink. Since I wear it a lot. When I don't have it one. People asked me what in the world is going on.
