Spring green

I know, it’s been a while. Unmotivated is my middle name lately when it comes to the blog. Or anything. I’m feeling a bit burnt out and not sure if I even want to continue the blog anymore. It just feels so two years ago, ya know?

Work is pretty chaotic right now, my back hurts from the car accident I had in December. By the time I get to the weekend, I have no oomph left for me.

However, I got trigger point injections this past week that numb up the tight knots of pain in my back and I feel okay for the moment. I can tell they are already wearing off in some spots, but I still feel better then I usually do.

And, I am ordering so much stuff from Young Living I am qualifying to get a free bottle of the essential oil, Motivation, so perhaps that will help as well. We could all use a little motivation every now and again, huh? Ha. If you want to try out Young Living essential oils, sign up using to get your essential oil starter kit using my link here.

If you sign up for Essential Rewards, soon to be Loyalty Rewards, you can start earing freebies, too. The more you spend, the more freebies you earn. Start with the starter kit and move on up from there. Or not. I really could care less. (Here’s the lack of motivation speaking again. I really do need that Motivation oil. I’m not kidding here!)

On to this outfit. You can’t tell in these photos, but there are tiny little colorful speckles all over these jeans. I just loved that detail. And the ruffle on the mint crocheted top – also super cute. Add golden sandals for this glorious spring weather, rose gold purse and sunglasses, and you’re good to go for a minty spring green outfit. And now, I’m going to go hang out in a tree. Because I feel like it.

How to mix plaid like a pro

Are you a fan of plaid? Here are some tips for mixing plaid patterns like a pro!

Mix similar colors. Here I mixed purple plaid and pink plaid. Colors that compliment each other.

Go bold! I also chose bold bright colors for a brilliant color scheme that stands out.

Layer. Take an accessory like a scarf or poncho and layer it over another plaid.

Gingham and plaid. Mix gingham and plaid. A simple gingham check with a more complex plaid pattern is a great way to layer squares upon squares.

Sport a plaid coat. Wear a plaid coat over plaid pants, a dress or a top.

Opposites. Wear opposite color patterns, For example, if your outer layer is red with black, make the inner layer black with red.

Coordinate color schemes. Match a coat and hat in the same pattern of plaid for a matchy, matchy plaid look.

Mix different types of plaid. Try mixing a plaid with a smaller lines with a bigger plaid pattern. Complimenting your color scheme.

Tie in with a neutral shade. Make sure to use different types of plaid tied in with a good neutral shade as a baseline so the eyes don’t go totally crazy.

Keep it simple and have fun with it.

Go with grace this week. Thank you for stopping by.

‘For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God.’ ~ Ephesians 2:8
