Fashion Over Fifty: Geometric Prints

Hello and welcome to another Fashion Over Fifty post.  I actually have a day off today where I don't have too much to do other than laundry and plant watering, so I'm hoping to get some time to play in my craft room so I have something 'crafty' to show you.  I know I haven't  posted any of my creations in weeks, and I apologize for that, it's just 'the Christmas Season'…..busy, busy, busy.  However,  for this week's Fashion Over Fifty post I wanted to show you a  geometric outfit I wore recently.  The key to wearing bold, geometric prints for me is to keep the colors neutral.  I found this skirt by Worthington at J.C. Penney last year and fell in love with the zig zag print and the comfortable knit material.  The sweater is a pretty grey metallic sweater by a.n.a. also sold at J.C. Penny last year.  It has a drop seam sleeve that hits right at the arm bicep, and the rest of the sleeve is tighter at the forearm.  

 For jewelry I wore a long silver charm necklace that also had a black feather as one of it's charms,  black/silver drop earrings, and a black/silver bracelet.
 Although we finally got some relief from the freezing temperatures here in northern Wisconsin, it was bitterly cold the day I wore this outfit so I stayed warm with black boots and tights.  The boots were purchased last year from Famous Footwear.
 The boots have a very unique detail at the ankle that I really like:  a half bow connected to a buckle.
Have a great day!  And stay sane these last few days before Christmas!  Amy
