Tired of the same old fashion (or non-fashion) statement

Slacks, jeans, t-shirts, sweatshirts......not too exciting......one day I saw this....

So colorful! The cover of a magazine about textiles, "SELVEDGE"!

I found out that this was the work of designer Gudrun Sjoden, a Swedish designer.

[This is sort of another take on the "granny chic" I wrote about last week!]

Take a look...

I was intrigued enough to place an order....the service was almost instant! I ordered tights with red dots and a floaty smock in indigo blue (good color!).

I wasn't sure if I should "go for it"....but jumped in, wore it to work with a turtleneck and lightweight natural colored linen skirt which acts like a slip. for work I added purple Mary Jane shoes.......got lots of compliments...I thought surely, Mr. P would hate it......but he liked the look!

He even wanted to take my photo! Here I am with the red cowgirl boots too....(and my granny afghan on the rocker behind me, ha!)

This look is also good with my red clogs, of course!

Sometimes, a bit of fun works!!!!

Now back to my yoga pants and thermal underwear....it is 16 degrees out there today! Off to work!

Well if you aren't the cutest thing, I don't know who is - but granny? I know you are - but it sure doesn't look like it. Love the look - and the boots.
