Fall Fashion 2015: Inspired by Art

Fall fashion...how I love it!  Just brings a smile to my face.  And, most often that smile is there!  Thank you to all who sent special messages after I confessed to a bad week last week.  Turns out there really was a reason for my Looney-Tunes behavior...I have a "significant" sinus infection and now I am on medication...happy to see the end of this tunnel.
I was struck recently with how difficult it is these days to maintain a joyful, optimistic attitude.  We went to a movie, a comedy, but the previews of coming movies were so dark and depressing.  Current television shows are the same way...you either watch news played out in fiction (don't need that), or see people eat each other alive with anger on reality television.  From video games to social media, the messaging is overly negative and sad.

We must choose to look up, look away, and smile in order to enjoy each and every day.  It is a battle...but it is worth it...choose to smile...choose to focus on the good...choose to find beauty in all people...and choose to believe #IMATTER...because you do!

THIS TUNIC is a beautiful, art-inspired top in the SOFT SURROUNDINGS ART INSPIRED STYLE FOR FALL 2015.  I love it...I feel like a painting.  *I am choosing to forget the humidity which attacked my hair, because I love the look!  San Antonio, this tunic is currently at Soft Surroundings in the Shops of La Cantera...tell them Pam sent you!  Find the tunic HERE!



Have a joyous Thursday, everyone!

  2. That's why I only watch PBS or TMC. Who needs more negativity in their lives? Not me. I noticed the same garbage previews last time we went to the movies! So depressing!! And we wonder why violence is escalating in our society? Love, love this top on you! The bold graphic is so fun.

  3. we were watching a recorded Civil War [ken burns, thank you so much] episode with all its battles and death and dying but the sense of purpose soldiers on both sides had. When it was over, we switched over to TV only to catch a scene from a "from the headlines" drama that was so fake and horrifying (without sense of purpose). It's maddening. Thank you for bringing up the subject. Is it just our generation that's so turned off? BTW: loved today's look and the way the tunic is set up by the black sweater and pants.

  5. Lovely tunic. I rarely watch TV except for cookery programs and a good Drama, certainly not the news. I do listen to the radio to keep up to date.

  6. That's a great-looking top, Pam. I'm so glad you found out about the physical illness and took care of it - we're all connected, body-and-mind. xox

  7. I hate all of the violence and rarely go to movies or watch current violent TV. Grr. It's all too much.

    Love you outfit. I have that same necklace from Chico's! LOVE the top and hope the leggings have a little "give."

    I just started Jenny Craig again. Are you still doing it? Just curious.

    Hope you're feeling better!

  8. I so agree: those movie previews are just awful....who in the world actually wants to go and watch them? Lots and lots of people, as it turns out. What a sad commentary of our society. That is why "The Intern" was such a fabulous movie!!! As for the news....we don't watch TV at all; only for Masterpiece Theatre and Mystery! Enjoy your weekend Pam.
