When I was little I fell in love with the fashion of the 50's. I loved the poodle skirts, converse, rolled jeans, leather jackets, all of it! Whenever my kids have a decade day at school I always try to get them to dress up from the 50's. When Kayla over at Freckles in April posted our prompt for today I was so excited to get to have a decade day of my own. I tried to create an outfit that was true to the decade but not to costumey, I hope I succeeded!
This is my cool Fonzie pose.
This is me laughing at my cool Fonzie pose.

Today is all about mixing it up! I am usually not a pattern mixer and I spent a good long time this morning trying to find the perfect thing, all I can say is thank goodness I have a thing for scarves! I actually really liked how this turned out, Thanks Kayla for pushing us outside our comfort zones:)
When I first read this prompt, my first thought was that I wanted to channel Cori. If you have not read her blog or seen her amazing outfits, you are missing out. She is so beautiful and I love reading about her cute family. My second thought was Audrey Hepbern, she is so classic and beautiful. This is the outfit I came up with...
Check out all the link-up gals, they have seriously cute outfits...

I have decided that embracing a trend while trying to wear something work appropriate is not easy and not fun. I really wanted to go all out and wear something so fun, but when you work in an ultra-conservative office you have to dress accordingly. I choose this bright blue sweater in an attempt to embrace bright colors!

I loved that song when I was a kid! Today I am wearing all one color, when I thought about this I immediately thought of my new purple cords and knew I had to wear them. As I was looking through my closet I realized I have a lot of this color, I guess it's a favorite because I had many options to choose from. I don't normally wear all one color, but it is a fun change!

I am one of those people who is always cold, in the summer I take a blanket to the movies, and always carry a sweater, in the winter I cook my husband out of the car, and wear a coat indoors. So for me, winter time is layer time, I always wear at least three layers on top, and on really cold days, 2 layers on bottom. I love layering on a big cozy sweater, I have even been known to wear so many layers that it makes it hard to move my arms (picture the little boy on Christmas Story)!
Check out the other ladies who love to layer over at Freckls in April!

I have a thing for watches. It probably started in the 8th grade when everyone was wearing multiple Swatch watches around their teenaged wrists. I longed for a cool watch, but could not afford a Swatch watch of my own. So I bought a much less expensive knock-off and thus began my love of watches. Over the years I have had many watches some big, some small, casual, fancy, stylish and silly and I loved them all. This is my current collection...
These pants are the most amazing color purple that you can't really see in these pictures, but trust me they are delicious!
What is the one accessory that you love the most?

My class ring that is...My son got his class ring for Christmas so I decided to take mine in and have it re-sized and cleaned. It is fun to wear again even though my children think it is just one more thing to mock me about. I just love having teenagers :)
