Happy Thursday, friends. Today, I am discussing jackets, jeans, and a touch of bling.
Jackets and jeans are my personal uniform this time of year and have been for a very long time.
I guess I began wearing jackets and jeans on casual Fridays when I was working as a teacher and in the professional world.
I have always liked the multiple ways that jackets and jeans can work together to stretch a wardrobe.
When I evaluated my wardrobe not too long ago, I realized that my purchases from Macy’s over the years have lived in that closet for a very long time.
Though I have purchased jackets and jeans at other retailers, Macy’s always provides good fit, quality and very affordable pricing.
The pieces I own have washed well and helped me to communicate my style adjective, POLISHED.
Macy’s has begun Black Friday specials and some of the pricing is just exceptional….so with all of that in mind, my slide shows today feature picks from Macy’s.
I hope you enjoy seeing these inspiration looks, because this is how I actually look in my real world when out and about…pre-surgery, of course!
JACKETS AND JEANS: THE STAR IS A GREAT JACKET
Of course, the star of any jackets and jeans outfit is a great jacket.
They come in so many styles and sizes and I am sure many of you have decided what works best for you.
Most of my jackets are classic blazer-styles, with few prints or plaids. I can do more with a classic blazer and love to wear them with scarves during the cooler weather.
NOTE: These are outfits worn recently, so shoes were all about accommodating the wonky foot.
Macy’s currently has great jackets on sale and in all price ranges. I have found some of the more affordable Macy’s brands to be very good jackets at low prices. They also carry designer jackets as well.
JACKETS AND JEANS: WEAR BEST JEANS
My advice to you right now goes against what many blogs say…don’t worry about what is in style, worry about your best fits in jeans.
I believe I look good in slim fit, skinny jeans…so I am going to wear them…no matter if websites say they are in style or not.
I am sure you can tell that I own a lot of jeans…this is Texas, after all…we love our denim.
When I think it is a jackets and jeans day, I first select the jacket.
If it is a longer boyfriend style, then I most often go with the skinny jean, or slim leg jeans.
If I select a shorter length jacket, then I am OK to widen the leg a bit, or maybe even go with my boyfriend, cuffed hemline jeans.
I must confess that my favorite jackets and jeans looks are the boyfriend jackets with the the skinny jeans…always been a favorite.
The RUCHED SLEEVE BLAZER I am wearing is only available in very small sizes, but on sale. The black version is full price in all sizes.
The jeans still hanging in my closet over many years are the ones by INC at Macy’s….and most often in the curvy sizes for my generous hips!
Here are some excellent selections at great prices currently at Macy’s:
I wear my black denim often this time of year with my best colors at the top!
JACKETS AND JEANS: AND A TOUCH OF BLING
Outfits with jackets and jeans provide lots of opportunities to wear a touch of bling this time of year.
My touch of bling is most often found on a brooch and I want to return to wearing more than one at the same time…I haven’t done that in a long time, but love the look.
A little touch of bling can help make the season bright.
Ladies, I have looked at accessories from many brands and I am telling you that the prices and selections at Macy’s this year are exceptional…love their brooch selections so much…
Here are a few for you to consider:
In colder months, I love to wear a touch of bling on tanks tops with my jackets and jeans.
I love the one I am wearing, but it is too old to link to…however, I can tell you that this is a way to speak my style adjectives of creative, polished, approachable, joyful, and current.
What is more joyful than a touch of bling?
I do have a green fully sequined tank that I wear mostly around Christmastime.
Jackets and Jeans keep bling under control….especially if you are not comfortable in a fully sequined top or jacket.
That is why I personally look for ones that are on the more affordable side…the cost per wear needs to be taken down in the price…not the number of times I wear it.
I have Macy’s in this slide show, plus a few more….there are a few higher priced ones at some of your favorite brands.
I hope this has inspired you and given you ideas with your own jackets and jeans outfits today.
As I said, these are uniforms for me…favorite go-to outfits that I really rely on to say Pamela-style.
Would love to hear from you and make sure that you always….
