Happy April Sunday, all! Today, is a little series featuring my 4 Favorite Spring Jackets.
With each favorite spring jacket, I will explain why I styled them the way that I did and share links, or similar links.
As I have written before, I love casual-style jacket looks with denim of any shade and that is what inspired these posts.
Also, today, I begin to select clothing for readers based on the information that was sent to me with style adjectives.
Look below for our first one…welcome Carlene!
FAVORITE SPRING JACKET – #1
I love this Montauk Twill Jacket in Ivory from Talbot’s
I will be able to do so much with it, but today’s look is very different for me….yet, I am so glad I tried it.
I have seen many women wearing cream on white or white on cream, and it was Annie Castano’s inspiration that gave me courage to style this.
It is at the moment one of my favorite looks in my wardrobe. I would not have had the courage to do this without seeing others wearing this new take of neutral on neutral.
This jacket is available in four lovely shades including a bright orangey papaya color.
But, the cream filled a need in my wardrobe after I sent my white jackets on their merry way.
And Talbot’s offers a matching Pima Cotton-Blend Tank in Ivory
Their ivory color is a rich, buttercream-like color…just lovely.
STYLING A FAVORITE SPRING JACKET
I know regular readers are well aware that I love these a.n.a. High Rise Jeggings from JCP.
Not only does this outfit speak to my style adjectives of joyful, approachable, creative/artistic, polished, and current; but it also keeps me well within warm colors.
I can still wear white/white as long as it is not up against my face.
I decided to pop color with my favorite spring jacket with a gorgeous Echo Silk Scarf from Dillard’s.
It was made to go with one of my older, bolder Chico’s necklaces and vintage Chico’s bracelet with orange beads.
I like the way the brown in the necklace matches the buttons on the jacket, and the necklace is made with ivory, green, brown and gold beads.
I just love an outfit made up of pieces that seem made to go together.
I discovered these sneakers early on at DSW and there are a few left.
They have been favorites in my wardrobe ever since I found them.
I hope you have enjoyed the kickoff to sharing my 4 Favorite Spring Jackets…I will have a new one through Wednesday!
Now for helping others communicate their own Foundational Five Adjectives!
SELECTING SPRING FAVORITES FOR CARLENE
One of my main goals is to assist women to help discover a confident, uniquely-you style.
It starts by controlling what we say to the world about us with our choice of clothing.
I do that by “fashioning” looks that communicate five main adjectives with everything I wear.
Find more in this video: DEVELOP A PERSONAL STYLE THAT IS UNIQUELY-YOU OVER 50.
With all of this in mind, I asked readers to send me their five adjectives and I would select clothing for them which I believe speaks to those adjectives.
I heard from many, so I will work through them as best I can and notify you by email when I am going to post your slideshow.
Today, meet Carlene from Wisconsin! Carlene really helped me out by sending photos of herself in addition to the adjectives.
She has a lovely smile and is a mom and grandmother and another VIBRANT warm woman. I bet we could be great friends!
With every look, Carlene wants to say to the world that she is CONFIDENT, TIMELESS, SPORTY, WARM and VIBRANT.
I believe the pieces in this slideshow would help Carlene to do just that. One more note, I guessed from her pictures that she is a petite, so these are mostly for petites.
I also decided to go ahead and push Carlene toward a few prints that I believe she could wear for vibrant, warm confidence!
Carlene, this is for you…………………………and, yes, I think my favorite spring jacket is perfect in a vibrant color!
Can’t wait to hear how I did! Of course, anyone can add their names to the list…I have many to work my way through…but there are never TOO many!
Would love to help if I can.
KEEP SMILING, ALL!!
