I was so ready for Spring…then it started raining again. We need the rain, but I want to wear Spring clothes! Today I’m sharing how I dress for my Spring mood during Winter weather. Don’t let the pictures fool you. It started pouring cats and dogs an hour later and hasn’t let up since!
Style has the power to transform your confidence. Working from the outside in, women can boost their confidence by hitting their Style Sweet Spot. Pam Lutrell and I began this new series, Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, to help and inspire those women who are struggling with their appearance. Each week we choose a scenario from our daily lives to show why, what and how we dress to reach our style sweet spot. Your style sweet spot is when you feel confident about your appearance and know you are sending the message you want people to see.
Last week Pam and I shared how we dress in Black and White. This week we are showing how we dress for a Ladies Night Out.
I’m starting with color and texture. Shiny patent leather handbag, simple pearl earrings and fun pleating in this Zen Jacket, by Babette. I’ve loved and worn Babette for years. I am wearing the jacket snapped closed as a shirt, but will wear it open over a tank top in warmer weather.
This bracelet was an unusual purchase for me because I don’t wear many patterns. It was made by the Aboriginal Canadians and sold at a little shop on Vancouver Island. It’s now a favorite because of the rich memories it brings back of our home there.
My favorite pants from Eileen Fisher can be dressed up or down. If you haven’t discovered the ease and wearability of ponte knit, you owe it to yourself to try. They travel perfectly and are easy care, machine wash and dry. These pants are one of the work horses of my wardrobe, so you’ll see me wearing them a lot!
I’ve added this Cashmere Topper by Claudia Nicole, available at the Purple Poppy. It’s a great weight cashmere for Spring and will be the perfect wrap for summer evenings and restaurant air conditioning.
Style Tip- Remove labels from garments, once you own them. This prevents them from sticking out and showing through thin fabrics.
The label in this wrap was centered in the back seam. It would have shown through the light color and preventing me from wearing it certain ways. **There is no label or size police. Cut those puppies out and enjoy!!
Purple Poppy is gifting a Cashmere Topper to one of my readers, in your choice of color.
The winner has been chosen and this giveaway is over. Thank you!
Now let’s pop over to see how Pam is hitting her Style Sweet Spot.
