I loved Fabulous Florida's Mommy's post (here: http://fabulousfloridamommy.blogspot.com/2009/03/what-color-to-wear-with-citron-yellow.html) on what colors to pair with citron yellow that I decided to pull one of my many citron items out and wear it today. It is cold here today (we even had flurries this morning) so I decided my herringbone fiona jacket in citron was the perfect item.
I spent nearly all of my time in Pi-Yo last night thinking to myself, "what shirt should I wear to complement the citron fiona?" Even when we were in our concentrated relaxation time I still was mulling over the possibilities! :) It wasn't until I actually looked in my closet that I realized which one to choose...ta da...the aqua-striped knit tee from Macy's Style & Co. Now I know I could have picked something a bit more formal, but well, it's Friday, and yep, you know it, I walked to school...so "stylish" comfort won out.
The jeans are Calvin Klein and purchased for a song from TJ Maxx. And they fit SO well. I love it when I can wear well-fitting pants. NO more too loose or (a lot less often for me--a snug waistband drives me cuckoo) too tight in my wardrobe. (This blog and the pics Jim takes every morning have really helped me get a sense of what to wear to flatter my best assets...cough, cough.)
The necklace is some inexpensive piece I found at Macy's a few years ago. The ring is the Orbit ring from J. Crew (winter 2008). Quick warning about the Orbit ring--it must have nickel because my finger turned green. This does not bother me, but if you don't care for this, do not purchase it (not available on jcrew.com but available on ebay). The shoes are some pair of Adidas I have had for years.

This is the outfit without the fiona jacket. Cute, presentable, and most importantly, easy to wear while walking!
The peek of aqua allows the jacket to be less "intense." It is like the aqua calms the jacket down. The jacket is wee bit big for me, but as long as it fits in the shoulders, that is what I care about. I am not sure I could be one of those ladies who could wear this jacket open, but if you are, more power! :)
I am heading off to West Virginia this weekend with the family for a getaway. YAY! I will probably get two more posts done today but may not compute at all this weekend. I will be back in business on Monday, though, so no worries if you enjoy my blog. If you don't enjoy my blog, well, then I guess you have two days off (maybe--who knows if I will feel the urge to write this weekend)! ;)
