Between the Lines Week 6 and What to Wear to a Graduation Party

Since I was out of town last week, I am including the link for both Weeks 6 and 7 in the Between the Lines series on Women Bloggers over 50. Be sure to read to the bottom of the page and click on the link to see other great women bloggers over 50. The link will take you to Katherine's Corners. Katherine is the blogger who came up with the idea for this series to introduce us and you to the other many bloggers over 50. These bloggers write about everything from fashion and cooking to home redo's and gardening. Just scroll to the bottom of Katherine's page and click on the links that you find interesting. Maybe you'll find a few new friends to follow. I have. 

I apologize that these pics are so horrible, but it was what I had to work with using my flip phone. Yes, I am still part of the dark ages. Ha, ha. 

I found this cute sleeveless dress at Kohl's for only a few dollars on the mark down rack. It has a gathered waist, and came with a dark blue ribbon to bring in the dark blue of the fabric. The hem is asymmetrical and the dress is lined with a soft stretchy fabric, just like the outer shell, so it moves easily.

As it was a cooler day, I put my dark wash button up on as a jacket and wore leggings and my navy Ked sneakers. I accessorized with a navy flower necklace from Christopher and Banks and two navy bracelets. Sometimes, I just love everything to match. I am trying to get away from that, but nothing makes me feel quite as put together as an outfit that has single color theme. I carried a small pewter colored hobo bag which was perfect for the few things I wanted to take to the party.

I loved the blue of this outfit, but it could easily be less "matchy" by throwing on a different colored pair of wedge sandals and a bag, maybe in a tan or beige color. Or you could add bright colored yellow accessories, or a pastel colored sweater or light weight jacket. 

I'd love to hear your ideas on how to change up this outfit. Let me know in the comments section below!

Next week, I'll be back to my two parter series on single pieces. If you remember I left off with a casual take on white crop pants. Next week, we'll look at a more dressed up version. Thanks for following!
