Flower Garden with Project Sister Act

Project Sister Act-Flower Garden.

Quote of the day: “I don’t think age should dictate what your wear or how you can wear it. I think it depends on the person.” Iris Apfel

I know I don’t post on Fridays but I had the opportunity to join in on a special collaboration! Project Sister Act is an achievement originated by blogger, Sheela. In general, her message is no different than my blog —style is ageless! Any aged woman can wear a certain motif or piece of clothing and look fabulous in it! And how interesting that this same design can look so different on each person, due to one’s own style & interpretation!

The theme this month was flower garden. I’m sure we’ve all read  that flowers on your clothing can be matronly (You’ve seen this said in those magazines that say you shouldn’t wear “whatever”)! YET here are 7 generations to prove that theory wrong! Please take a moment to check out these other blogger’s blogs since we all had the opportunity to interpret this print individually (I spy a t-shirt, a pantsuit, dresses, leggings, booties, pins & trousers)!

So for our looks, I wanted to make sure we didn’t look frumpy or dowdy! You tell me what you think….

50’s Outfit: I wore an all white look with flower accessories. Who cares that I’m wearing white before Memorial Day? The pin is a brooch within a (mom made) brooch–I call that brooch squared!

70’s Outfit: Mom’s flower print is almost retro. I love the different colored shoes & jewelry instead of going with “matching” blue or black.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Ana!!

  • I think this concept of yours – showing outfits for all sorts of age groups – is such a neat one! Thanks for joining us at #FridayFrivolity this week!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Lisa!

  • Love seeing how everyone wears florals. What a versatile print!


  • All these looks are wonderful, flattering and Springy! There’s not a hint of frumpy for a thousand miles around! Thanks for sharing, xo


    • Jodie Filogomo

      How funny you are Patti!! Thanks!

  • So Eve and I were looking at your three looks, Jodie, and simultaneously exclaimed how we love Nancy’s pants GRIN pure funkiness, zero dowdiness there 🙂 and I especially like your little floral accents particularly your heels. And your mum’s dress is the epitome of classic and fresh. I love every single look but what I particularly adore is your enthusiasm and spirit, Jodie. You were so so so awesome from the get go and I can’t express how much fun it has been partnering with you for Project Sister Act. I really look forward to extending our friendship way beyond this collaboration xoxo

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Back atcha’ Sheela!! I realize you always pick different blogs for your sister act—totally get it! But let me just put it out there, that I’m a huge fan and will always be open to work with you again!! Thanks for this opportunity!!!

  • love the florals! so perfect for spring!


    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Kelsey—somewhat predictable, but that’s not always bad, eh?

  • I love the flower theme, perfect for Spring and the diversity used in the women of different ages. They all look beautiful. I will be sharing this 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Sheri—how nice!!

  • What a great collaboration.
    Teens up to 70’s, showcasing style at any age.
    The looks you have put together are beautiful and could be worn by anyone of any age
    Nancy’s trousers and that necklace your Mum is wearing? I want!!!!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Samantha!! We were just laughing at how I can keep both mom’s & Nancy’s wardrobe in my head and it’s probably because I covet many things they own!!
      I wanted to say thanks for being such a great cheerleader for all three of us—-I really appreciate it!!

      • It’s my pleasure Jodie! We may have different tastes (especially in shoes!! :oP), but I still admire what you do and am inspired by your creativity. XXX

  • PetiteOver40

    What a great collaboration! I love seeing the theme of flowers on decades of women from teens onward. How cool!!

    Your outfit is so sophisticated — a monochromatic look but for the pop of burgundy on your jacket with a flower/brooch and the colorful “garden” at your feet on those adorable pumps! Of course, Nancy and your mom look beautiful as well! I’m especially digging your mom’s dress and the other bright colors you paired with it. Not a single one of your outfits could be considered dowdy. You all look stylish and sophisticated.

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Sherry! I was just commenting to another that I didn’t used to wear floral anything because it was so “girly”—-am I right to think you were the same (knowing your history with lace)?? It is an amazing thing, to see how our perceptions can change over time. And I think it’s so great to look at all age groups and how they style to get wonderful ideas!!
      Thus why I’m hanging with you—you’re in the younger generation!! 🙂

      • PetiteOver40

        Ha ha! You’re right! When I started my blog, I didn’t have a single pattern, other than pinstripes and soft plaids, in my wardrobe. That is changing, thanks to you and a handful of others who are so inspiring! You should see the garden I’m collecting in my closet! 🙂

  • Hi Jodie, it’s a pleasure to meet you! I wanted to stop by to thank you for visiting/following my blog and I wanted to check yours out as well. Love the spring looks!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Stephanae—just as style should be ageless, I applaud you for showing it to be for EVERY kind of woman….even if you can’t see! Talk about amazing!

  • I do a love a cute floral…anything! Thanks for sharing 🙂

    • Jodie Filogomo

      I’ve only lately been willing to wear florals—they were way too “girly” for me as a youngster!! (I guess we could call that divaism–ha ha—maybe that’s where my mom gets it!!)

  • Laura

    I love this idea! Your outfits are all on point, from subtle floral to those amazing floral pants!

    • Jodie Filogomo

      It really was fun to see what each generation comes up with—the thanks all goes to Sheela!!

  • Loved your outfits 🙂 Gemma x

    • Jodie Filogomo

      Thanks Gemma!!
