WIW: Tomato Shoe-Bag-Scarf Compliment

I found I had the pieces and wore them today. The top is ink blue and too big. I'm giving it to DDIL. Jeans are plaid with red (not tomato). Scarf is new from the Rack, a silk version of a red bandana. DGS, age 2, noticed this outfit. When he saw me today, he said, "Grandma has red shoes and a red backpack." I welcome your suggestions and comments. Happiness factor is high. Now I need to put together a compliment to match my aqua bag.

    I love this on you - you will just have to find a substitute for the top so you can repeat. Great red "backpack" too!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Shevia, yes, I need more long sleeved shirts for my new climate. I wonder if I can shrink this one in the dryer.

    What a fab outfit! And your grandson's comment is adorable. Love your "backpack," Joy!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, Sharan. To the little guy everyone carries back packs. He was quite impressed with the red; so much so that he forgot to ask if it held a toy for him.

    A fun outfit with A LOT of style.

    You look fabulous!  You inspire me to go to my closet and try to put some outfits together.

  • Dianna replied 1 year ago

    As always, you are a joy to watch.  Tomato red is one of my favorite colors.  You look fab, but my favorite part of the outfit is your big smile, it is contagious. I am already looking forward to see the acqua combo.

    Thank you, Emily, Ginko and Dianna. Your comments are such a boost.
    Ginko, go through your closet. You may be surprised at what you find. Dianna, I have been going through shoes online hoping to find some aqua flats.

    I am sure you will find something great, Joy

    Great rendition, Joy. I love your jeans.

  • Mirjana replied 1 year ago

    Wow. How great outfit, you are adorable Joy. I think your DGS gave you the best compliment, you should be proud, kids are honest, you really look wonderful on this outfit I have to copy.

    I love it, Joy.  What lovely, colourful pieces.

  • Sterling replied 1 year ago

    Fabulous Joy.  Love the red against that dark column.  It really stands out and elevates the ensemble.  

  • Staysfit replied 1 year ago

    So nice together! i like the added red in the plaid pants which ties everything together nicely. I would like to see the same accessories capsule used with several outfits. I'm trying to get motivated to create one or two with what remains of my Spring/Summer budget.

    Fun outfit Joy! I love those pants on you.

  • RobinF replied 1 year ago

    That's a pretty observant 2-year old! Great outfit!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you, dear stylish ladies, for looking and commenting. Staysfit, that is a good idea to have a variety of outfits in mind to wear with these tomato accessories. I have an idea for tomato and chocolate, denim and tomato, and maybe blushing tomato. A column of black would need some white with the red. Maybe the right scarf would do the trick.
    Dianna, the aqua shoes I like best are all over $500, out of my budget. But there must be something non-sandal out there.

    Wonderful outfit--those jeans are fantastic!

  • Runcarla replied 1 year ago

    Love it, Joy!  Your red accessories make me smile.

  • JAileen replied 1 year ago

    I really like it. You could take the shoes and bag and put them with any neutral outfit.

  • harmonica replied 1 year ago

    Fun outfit! The three pieces really pull together your outfit. Great redention!

  • Suz replied 1 year ago

    Fabulous on you, Joy! The red is brilliant with your hair. I am falling in love with red myself now that I am silver. 

  • Angie replied 1 year ago

    FABULOUS. There is no end to your charm. 

  • texstyle replied 1 year ago

    Love this Joy - I agree that red is very nice with your haircolor.

  • replied 1 year ago

    Very fun! What a hip grandmother you are!

  • Joyce B replied 1 year ago

    I love your outfit. I bet your DGS loves red, too!

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you. Joyce, yes, DGS loves red but I think his favorite color is neon green.
    Suz and Texstyle, red is great with silver hair, although my best shade has changed.
    Angie, you are so sweet and encouraging.
    Harmonica and JAileen, Angie is right as usual.
    Thank you Sarah, Runcarla and Zoiechic.

    Wow Joy you look amazing! I am especially mad on the pants x

  • shedev replied 1 year ago

    Great outfit Joy. I love the pants.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    Thank you for your comments, Jenni and Shedev. I am thinking of doing a hack job on those jeans so that I can wear them cropped for summer. However, they were great to have for casual holiday events this past season, so maybe I should leave them alone.
