Women's Fashion Over 50: Color Inspiration

Recently, this building caught my eye and I decided I needed to take a picture here.  I drive by it daily, but one morning the red siding and the stars just inspired me.  Inspiration is a funny thing...how it comes and goes and will just randomly pop up.  I find myself most inspired during quiet moments when I refuse to allow stress to reign over my thoughts.
On this day, our South Texas temps began in the morning at 47 and jumped to almost 80 during the day...these are tough days to plan a wardrobe around.  But I decided to wear this colorful, knit jacket with a cotton striped Eileen Fisher tank underneath.  



I began the day with the scarf thrown casually over the opposite shoulder, but as the temps heated up...it came down. I love this scarf.  It was an impulse purchase in an airport boutique the last time I went to Las Vegas.  It was marked down and the colors just ...well...inspired me!










The Pantone Color of the Year for 2017 is called GREENERY.  I am excited because I love green!  On the GREENERY PAGE, there is a pallet of colors called Forest Floor...these are my favorites.  Love each one in this collection!  Gives me lots of inspiration!  Which pallet do you like or not like in the color collections?

I selected some fun color pieces for your consideration below....



Stay Inspired Today!

    1. I have been known to pull an outfit together based on leaves, or paintings, or interior design. Always open to what will bring inspiration and it helps me to enjoy and appreciate my surroundings! Thanks for stopping by Mimi!

  3. I love your scarf! We are nomadic and I tote along three separate packing cubes of pashminas, challis, and silk scarves. This way I can keep my main pieces basic, but still express with color. Great looks here.
