Romantic style, treats and gifts

Happy Tuesday!  Welcome to a discussion of how I wear romantic style plus treats and gifts.

You might remember that my online stylist, Annie Castano, recommended bohemian/romantic style for me at the beginning of last summer.

I am still tweaking and working on the style part of each look, but here is an outfit where I found a nice balance for romantic style.


Romantic Style treats and gifts

When I realized that most of my wardrobe needed to change due to my color change, I knew it was going to be quite a costly task.

But, JC Penney’s has been one of the brands where I could find quality pieces in my new colors for very affordable pricing. 

This a.n.a mock neck long sleeve blouse has given me a touch of romance in a lovely color called Cherry Mahogany. 

The neckline shows just a touch of the eyelet to place the romantic style at the top!

I paired the blouse with an older Chico’s silk purple jacket (it really is the perfect length!) that I have owned for years, but prior to my color change, I would not have paired these two pieces together.

The pants from JCP are the best $20 I have ever spent…my cost per wear is so low on these a.n.a. women’s high rise skinny pants in tan acid wash, because I love them for the fit, comfort and color.

Of course, you know me, I wanted to add a touch of fun, so I tossed on my new Vince Camuto Scarf from Nordstrom Rack.

If you look here at JCP and click on Black Friday deals…you will find some incredible pieces for as low as $14!

Finally on the outfit, I am super into my new flats shoes from Rockport…they are still on sale for 40% off with the code MERRY.

These are the Women’s Cob Hill Laci Twin Gore Slip On.  I love the style and Rockport shoes have always been my favorite comfort brand.  I have many of their styles.

These are leather and come in many colors.  I am lovin’ my gold metallic version. I needed a new cute flat which would allow me lots of walking with no problems.

Here are a few more highlights from these brands….


Romantic Style Treats and Gifts

I told you yesterday that I would share what I brought home from the road trip for Mr. B.

He loves, loves, loves candied jalapeños.  This brand was recommended by a Boerne deli owner, as well as, the customers.

He enjoyed them on crackers with cream cheese.  They would be perfect for parties or for gifts!

Here is the Jalapeno Gold website….for those who might also like sweet with fire.

Or locals can head out to the Boerne Epicure Gourmet Market…and while you are there grab one of their delicious sandwiches and eat outside.


Romantic Style Treats and Gifts

Since I began writing about gift ideas last week, I have already been invited to two ornament exchanges.

I was very impressed with the beautiful ornaments at Pottery Barn…I picked up one there for one of the exchanges.  The Etched Mercury Glass ornaments are lovely.

And ornaments are excellent hostess gifts for the household that loves Christmas.  Keep them in mind.

Does anyone else like a touch of romance in your style?  If so, what are your ideas for styling?  Please share and thank you so much for being here…you are greatly appreciated! See you tomorrow for the mid-week Would You Wear It!
