Wow, almost half way there! This was an interesting day. The focus of today’s assignment was on the color green. Did you know that the color “greenery” is the Pantone color of the year? What is greenery? Is that really a color, lol? This was the suggestion for today’s challenge. Can you think back to my capsule and figure out what I used for today?
I was not sure how this was going to work. I don’t have jumpsuit, never thought they were functional (if you know what I mean). I didn’t think I had much in the way of green, especially a bold shade, then I remembered a dress “The Man” jokingly (he didn’t think I’d like it) suggested I get for our sons rehearsal dinner almost two years ago. I actually loved it. I think it has a bit of a retro, almost 60/70’s vibe.
Isn’t this a fun dress? I think it would make a really cute maxi dress too. I don’t know why he didn’t think I’d like it, except that it is a bit bold. He also tried to suggest white go-go boots? Are you kidding me? Men lol! It really doesn’t call for much in the way of accessories, in my opinion. But gold really does set it off . For kicks I tried my white shooties from the previous days….no, just, no.
Here is a close up of the accessories I chose.
The dress came from JCPennys. The shoes are Impo and came from DSW. I did buy them, because of the color, especially for the dress but have used them often. The black cross-body bag also came from DSW. I’m not sure I like it a lot with the dress, but I haven’t found one that’s better. Do you have any thoughts? The necklace is old, almost 20 years, and I don’t remember the name of the store it came from. I got it because it is a heart, and I love hearts. I have used it often. The earrings, if I’m not mistaken, came from QVC. I have shopped there and HSN too much, lol, but those flex/easy pays they offer are hard to resist….the bracelet is from Plunder and called Selma. I liked it because it pulled some of the colors from the dress. If you like it, You can get it here www.plunderdesign.com/party/janete1 Have you gone over and looked at the Plunder website yet? If you’re on the fence, because you aren’t sure if you’ll like something; give it a try. The website pictures do not do the pieces justice. They are so much prettier in person than in the pictures!
Tomorrow will be the end of week 1. Each week of the challenge was only for 5 days, with the weekends off. Have you had a chance to check out Sylvia’s website yet? If not, you can go to www.40plusstyle.com check it out and sign up for her newsletter.
We are supposed to have almost spring like weather again tomorrow. I sure hope so. Even though the winter hasn’t been horrid, I’m ready for it to go. Do you have anything planned for the weekend. Right now my only plans are the #saturday7amsocialclub and my session with my trainer, Jeff. Beyond that, I’m not sure. I can think of plenty of things I should do, but not wanting to…who’s with me on that?
I hope y’all have a great weekend. I will post day 5 tomorrow. Let me know what you think of this exercise and the options I’ve posted. I’m curious if your opinions are the same as the groups. I am definitely finding it interesting.
Until the next time
