Favorite Almost-Springtime Fashion

Favorite Almost-Springtime Fashion

Let’s talk fashion today!  I want to share two fun outfits I’ve worn lately, but FIRST I want to share one of my favorite things with you!

Get Your Pretty On is now offering a PERFECT wardrobe capsule for only $29!!!  I’m really excited about it!  If you’re wanting some basic wardrobe direction, this is where you want to start.  The seasonal challenges all build off of the basics in this one!

It’s called the SAHM Casual Wardrobe Basics Builder.  It provides you a list of 20 clothing items for you to gather.  You probably have a lot of them already, so shop your closet first and THEN go shopping to fill in any gaps.  You’ll also receive 20 days of outfits using those 20 pieces of clothing.  You won’t have to figure out what to wear; it’s all there for you!

(I want to say that this is a great wardrobe builder for ANY woman, not just stay at home moms!)

I discovered these style challenges a couple of years ago when I was REALLY struggling with how to dress this 40-something-year-old body of mine.  I didn’t want to look too young and I sure didn’t want to look too old!  The GYPO wardrobe challenges taught me how to shop well and how to coordinate great outfits from basic pieces and maybe a few special, pn-trend items.

The challenges gave me a LOT more confidence in shopping and looking trendy AND age appropriate.  I now refuse to buy anything if I can’t style it in at least three different outfits. Turns out that spending a little money on challenges like this one has SAVED me a lot of money!

So hurry and sign up for this wardrobe builder!  I know you’ll be pleased with it!   The signup for this ends in a few days, so check it out right now!

Here are a couple of outfits I’ve styled lately, all thanks to what I learned from Get Your Pretty On!

 

This is a swing dress from Old Navy worn over a sweet pair of LuLaRoe leggings.  To finish the outfit off I added an olive scarf and a pair of ankle boots.  (The olive and blue tie into the pattern on the leggings.)

This is another really basic outfit.  A pair of olive corduroy jeans with a striped swing top and a cardigan.  Add in a fun scarf (I love pattern mixing!) and boots, and voila!  One of my favorite winter outfits!  (The scarf ties together the colors in the jeans, shirt, and cardigan.)

Top Ten Posts for 2016 – Most Popular

What a fun year here at OutAndBack!  Thank you for stopping by, reading a while, and cheering me on!  Here are the ten most popular posts for 2016 (based on number of views).

1.  Electric Pressure Cooker – YES!  My initial foray into the world of electric pressure cookers.  I started with the Farberware model; here’s what I thought of it.  (Coming soon:  a post comparing this to the Instant Pot that I purchased later.)

 

2.  Michael Ann’s Kitchen  Day One of the Write 31 Days Challenge.  Welcome to my kitchen!  Let me show you around!  You’ll find the complete list of posts in this series here.

 

3.  One Carly, Three Ways  LuLaRoe posts have been VERY popular this year!  LuLaRoe fans abound, and for good reason!  If you’ve not succumbed to the LuLaRoe world yet, Carly is one of their wonderful dresses.

 

4.  Style Perspectives: How Would YOU Wear It?  I linked up with the fabulous ladies at The Blended Blog for this one.  We styled a blazer, tank/t-shirt, and jeans.  Easy peasy and FUN!

 

5.  Currently – December 2016  Each month I link up with Anne at In Residence for her “Currently” posts.  The topics change every month.  This is a fun post to write AND a fun way to quickly check out bloggers I don’t know.  The variety of responses each month always amazes me!  Beautiful Thomasville, Georgia featured prominently in this “Currently” post.

 

6.  In the Beginning  This was Day 2 of Michael Ann’s Kitchen, my response to the Write 31 Days blogging challenge.  On this day I shared what Mama taught me about being a successful cook.  She knew what she was talking about!  (Do you suppose my kids will ever say that about me?!?)

 

7.  Capes!  This post is nearly a year old now, and it’s cape season again!  Check ’em out and see what you think!  (I like THIS cape post a lot better!)

 

8.  The Letter R and the Elephant  Yes!  THIS is one of my favorite posts of the year!  Funny, funny story!

 

9.  Cozy Fashion for the Holidays  LuLaRoe fashion hits the Top 10 again!  This time I styled LuLaRoe leggings and linked up (again) with The Blended Blog.

 

10.  Fall Fashion Find: A Casual Dress  Wow!  Another fashion post and another link-up with The Blended Blog!

 

So, I’m curious.  Did YOUR favorite post(s) make the top ten?!?  Leave a comment and let me know!  I plan to list MY favorite posts tomorrow, and most of them ARE NOT on today’s list!  (You KNOW you’ll need to come back tomorrow, right?!?  HOW will you ever sleep tonight?!?)
