Loving Life after 50

Sunny with a Chance of Smiles

Can I get an amen without actually offending anyone??? I mean seriously folks spring has finally arrived in Ottawa and the grin on this gal could not get any bigger…. I mean seriously not just sun but double sigits in the 20’s ( that would be in the 70’s and 80’s F).  Almost too warm for tights and a sweater but I was still a little nervous that the weather would not hold. ( and then BTW I almost roasted in the office, can you say no air conditioning yet, and heat still spewing out…not a complaint folks i will suffer for the benefit of these temperatures.)
( and apologies for my late post, I took my sd card into the office with my pictures on it and left it in the office so when I got home last night I had zero pictures arggggg)

Vanheusen Yellow Cardigan with a Target LBD, Shoe Dazzle Yellow Signature Pumps and a statement necklace
I was perusing my Instagram account and realized I wore this combination exactly a year ago and I loved it so much I said to heck with it, this is my Do Over, in that I wore the same outfit, Good Lord can a fashion blogger even admit that in public??? I did add an extra necklace because hey three large strands of beads are just not enough so lets add yellow flowers right?? and I also added the most awesome coat in the world, what is it about a Houndstooth coat that just looks so absolutely right???
I was so excited when I arrived home last week to see my Coat had arrived ( figures now the weather would change) No matter I will still have ample opportunity to wear it I am sure

and hence we have a three outfit type of day, I wore the yellow cardigan and heels in the office but I wore the houndstooth outside ( without the cardigan underneath because it was way to warm) and then when I was out and about I switched the pumps for my black converse because really who wears heels out walking?? Well lots of people do but me, I rarely wear my pumps out on the street.

Do you change throughout the day?? Do you wear your pumps outside??? I use to when I was younger and then added up with those horrid raggedy looking heels, plus I could never keep up with that speed walker I love so much.
Enjoy your day folks and get ready for Spring to throw up all over my blog because today I am in pinks and floral because yep sunny again.

    You always look fabulous in yellow. I love that you layered the 2 bright yellow necklaces. I am looking to add a chunky yellow necklace, either a briolette or a flower one. And of course as a huge fan of houndstooth, I love that coat, Linda.

  • HI Linda

    Love the yellow, and yes "AMEN"! The black and white with the yellow is a great combination!

    Thanks for linking up with Turning Heads Tuesday!

    Yellow is certainly a good company with black!
