(ABOVE) Navy and dark pink. Love this combination!

I like wearing navy or black tops; maybe because of the contrast against my hair.  But if I had to choose between the two, it would be navy.

There is a deep richness about the color that always exhilarates me.  That may sound like a strange reaction to a color so dark, but for some reason that’s how it makes me feel.  Go figure!  And, when I pair navy with a bright color, like these hot-pink ankle pants, it makes me so happy I’m in Heaven.

I know it’s not typical to wear shirts under short-sleeve sweaters, but I love the look of layers.  I think it makes an outfit interesting.  The gold circle pin is a sentimental favorite of mine; it belonged to my paternal grandmother. ~Janis Lyn Johnson
