Another Trade + Some Link Ups

This month has been so fun. I feel like I have a little piece of my daughter back at home. Her creative trendy style has not been in our home for several years nor has her presence been in our little city or state. Another part of the country is blessed by her creative artsy little self. I have to admit I’m envious of those who get to hang out with her on a regular basis. But children have to grow up and live their lives…

One of the pieces she sent me a little striped top, which by the way, I just love. I had been thinking about the fact that I do not really own anything significant with stripes. I had a little fun coming up with some looks.

I styled the top a few different ways. I hadΒ  gray polka dot skirt that I was just waiting to pair with stripes. I also have a black and white striped skirt that I wanted to pair with the top as opposite stripes. I added the mustard cardigan to both mixes and was happy with the results.

I am adding some other little link ups along with this post.

Last week I tried but failed to get linked up with my blogger friend, Selah at A Bibliophile’s Style for Thoughtful Third Thursday. I had a plan and wanted to share the outfit below. My inspiration comes from my favorite book which is The Hiding Place {although I’m not reading it now….because now I’m reading RetroChristianity for my theology class}. So this is my take on 40ish style. A floral print dress {too short but oh well}, a cardigan, simple jewelry, wedges and a little bunish hair style going on.

There is another link up I wanted to participate in today. Another blogger friend, Alex at Undergraduate Style is having a link up for Color Me Tuesday. It’s a challenge to incorporate any of the new Spring colors from Pantone. I do have a few of the colors in my closet, but I chose this dazzling blue. It’s a great color!

Today I’m linking up with A Bibliophile’s Style, Undergraduate Style & Style Elixir.

Linking up Wednesday – The Pleated PoppyΒ  & Get Your Pretty On & Because Shanna Said So.

Linking up Thursday – Vodka Infused Lemonade & Perfectly Coutured & Mix and Match Fashion

  1. So much to comment on!
    First, I LOVE your pattern mixed outfits! Go you!
    Next, yay! I’m glad you were able to link up this month! I have never understood why The Hiding Place isn’t as famous as The Diary of Anne Frank.
    Lastly, Dazzling Blue is such a great color. During my 2nd pregnancy I had a gorgeous top in exactly that color. I have a photo around here somewhere, maybe I should add it to my link up post, just for kicks. πŸ™‚


    • Thanks, Selah! Pattern mixing = I think of you! Thanks for hosting the TTT link up – I’m totally going to do it again. I love that dazzling blue but failed with more of the colors. I still have some ideas though. πŸ™‚ As always, thanks for faithfully stopping by.


  2. All of these outfits look great on you! I love the stripes with yellow. This looks adorable on you. I enjoy seeing all the variations of these outfits, it gives your audience many ideas for personal styling.
