Not Jeans


 

Not Jeans

Someone asked recently if I could post more photos of outfits that didn’t feature jeans. I’ve done several in the past two months, so I thought I’d put some of them together. While I enjoy wearing trousers and pants instead of jeans, my particular current lifestyle gives me the freedom to wear jeans every day. After working in the corporate world (and dressing in suits and dresses) for over 25 years I welcome the change!

Today’s Outfit:

Outfit #1:
Leopard print blouse: H&M USA
Olive Linen Pants: The LOFT Outlet (2 seasons ago)
Aerosoles black wedge sandals: DSW

Outfit #2:
Striped 3/4 sleeve t-shirt: H&M USA
Pixie coral pants: Old Navy
Madden Girl Getta nude pumps: DSW

Outfit #3:
Blue blouse: Talbots
Pixie lemon print pants: Old Navy
Madden Girl Getta nude pumps: DSW
Yellow statement necklace: CATO Fashions

Outfit #4:
Merona ruffled tank: Target (last season)
Coral linen trousers: CATO Fashions
Franco Sarto brown wedge sandals: DSW

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Did It Again


5.29.15So, I told you I was going to wear my coral shoes. A lot. And I didn’t lie. Seriously, when shoes are this great, how can you not wear them? These beauties take any outfit from plain to fabulous in under 10 seconds. And it doesn’t have to be a coral pair of heels either. Any bright colored shoe or sandal (heel, wedge or flat) can do the exact same thing for your outfits. Yellow, pink, turquoise, red, purple – Try it! I dare you…

Today’s Outfit:
Merona Beige cotton knit shirt: Target (last season)
Denim Leggings: GAP Outlet (recent)
Comfort Plus by Predictions coral pumps: Payless
Necklace: Target

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Taking the Time


5.25.15

Thanks so much for continuing to follow my blog! As we get close to the official start of summer, I’m going to be taking a little time off. Don’t worry, I’ll still be posting, just not as often. If I skip a day now and then, I hope you’ll keep coming back. I just need to refocus and spend some time with my awesome husband and family. I’m sure you understand! I’ll get back to a regular schedule (and hopefully have more energy) after a much needed break.

Since our weather has been delightfully cooler than normal, I’ve been able to stretch my spring and summer outfits and utilize some of my lighter weight sweaters. This great sweater from H&M has seen a lot of use recently, and I love it combined with the amazing knit cropped jeans from Stein Mart (did I mention they are SUPER comfortable?). Adding the hot pink shoes and accessories brought everything together nicely, don’t you think?


Today’s Outfit:

Striped cotton sweater: H&M USA
Knit cropped jeans: Stein Mart
Comfort Plus by Predictions hot pink pumps: Payless
Necklace and earrings: LYDesigns

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Cooling Off



5.22.15We’ve had about 3 weeks of rain here in the Dallas area. Today it decided to be cool as well, so I was glad I had this cotton sweater. I added the scarf and necklace to keep it from being too “vanilla”.

Now for the fun news – on Sunday I auditioned for a local theater production of the musical “Little Women”. I’ve always wanted to play the part of Marmee, so I was delighted when I actually got the part! Rehearsals start the first week of June and the production runs from July 17 through August 2. Can you say “busy summer”??? It will be, but it will be a lot of fun, too!

Today’s Outfit:
Mossimo cotton sweater: Target
Denim Leggings: GAP Outlet
Comfort Plus by Predictions white pumps: Payless
Necklace and earrings: LYDesigns
Scarf: Target

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Picture Perfect


5.21.15I wore this outfit for an audition, then to see a friend perform at a local wine bar. I bought it on a recent trip to Austin – at a wonderful outlet mall. Now, you know how I love a bargain, and any time I can find a great deal at White House Black Market, well I have a hard time resisting. The tunic was on clearance, and the capri pants were on sale as well. Together they make an outfit that will go just about anywhere – and will be great for traveling. All in all, a great buy!

Today’s Outfit:
Striped tunic: White House/Black Market
Black knit capri leggings: White House/Black Market
Black Sandals: Rack Room Shoes
Earrings: LYDesigns
Braided silver cuff: Charming Charlie

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Going Green


5.20.15I found this lovely green sweater at Target a couple of years ago. On the clearance rack. For $5.00. I can safely say I’ve gotten my money’s worth out of it! It’s such a pretty color – I’m thinking of other things I can pair it with just so I can wear it more often!

The gold sandals are new – from Target. I’ve been looking for a pair of gold or nude sandals and have had trouble ones that are comfortable. Until I found these. They’re a little higher than I was looking for, but with the platform they’re extremely comfortable.

Today’s Outfit:
Merona cotton sweater: Target
Denim Leggings: GAP Outlet
Gold wedge sandals: Target (Recent)
Necklace: Charming Charlie (Clearance – recent)

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Singing the Blues


5.19.15This lovely blue silk tank is cool and comfortable – perfect for the warm days ahead. If you’re like me, sleeveless tops like this can present a challenge, lingerie strap-wise. When I found the Hollywood Bra Converting Clip, I knew I’d found a wonderful solution. I found them at Old Navy in the checkout line. How’s that for easy?

You might notice I’m wearing sparkly earrings – in the day time! I know it may seem out of the norm, but I like sparkles and don’t think they should be confined to evening.

Today’s Outfit:
Blue silk tank top: Ross
Vintage America Knit (yes, KNIT) denim cropped pants: Stein Mart
Aerosoles brown wedge sandals: DSW
Earrings: Sam Moon Trading

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Better late than never


5.18.15
I know it looks like I wear these shoes every day, but I really don’t. I just happen to be posting these outfits side by side. But I guess it does make a point. You never realize how functional a pair of “crazy” colored shoes can be until you actually buy them. I really never dreamed I would wear these this much (makes me wonder if I should buy a back up pair!). I haven’t worn them yet that someone has complemented me on them. You just never know…

About the knit denim cropped pants. Yes, they are KNIT. And yes, they are super, super (did I mention super?) comfortable. Almost like wearing yoga pants. Only not. Seriously, I may live in them this summer. Don’t doubt me.

Today’s Outfit:
Beige cotton cropped sweater: H&M USA
Merona orange tank: Target
Vintage America Knit (yes, KNIT) denim cropped pants: Stein Mart
Comfort Plus by Predictions coral pumps: Payless
Head scarf: Sam Moon Trading

Have a lovely, healthy day!

Dotted knit dress: The LOFT Outlet (last season)

Maximum Style (2)


5.14.15

I simply love this dress. I bought it 2 years ago at Soma (on clearance, of course) and have worn it many times. But this is the first time (at least I think it is) I’ve featured it on the blog. It has detachable straps, but I seem to have misplaced them. It looks fine strapless, but I was meeting a friend for lunch and strapless just felt a little, I don’t know…formal? So I pulled out my now trusty denim vest and headed off to spend a delightful afternoon on a patio. The fact that it was raining didn’t stop us. What’s a little rain when you have a nicely covered patio to hang out on?

Today’s Outfit:

Strapless knit maxi dress: Soma (2 years ago, but they have some pretty ones in the store and online right now!)
Denim vest: The LOFT Outlet (recent)
Jun & Ivy lace up sandals: Francesca’s (last season)
Silver braided cuff bracelet: Charming Charlie (it covers my Fitbit perfectly!)

Have a lovely, healthy day!
