An Afternoon On The Bocce Courts- What I Wore

This star sweater virtually jumped into my hand as I wandered through Nordstrom last week:) There are a lot of things about it that appeal to me… but mostly it’s the stars. I’ve had a “thing” for stars for as long as I can remember.

We hit the Bocce Ball court again this week, and because we’re having mild weather, this sweater was a perfect weight. I’m wearing a size large. I wanted to be comfortable, look pulled together, but not be overdressed so here’s what I wore.

Why I Love This Sweater

  • First…it’s navy which is one of my favorite colors this year.

  • Second…the stars. They’re one of the few patterns I wear, They feel classic and modern with a touch of lighthearted and playful. Let’s face it, 2020 has been the pits so if something as simple as a pattern or color can bring you joy, I say go for it.

  • Third, it’s soft. It’s a Pima cotton blend that’s cozy and feels luxurious against your skin. I knew I would love it with blue jeans and know it’ll also be terrific with my white jeans. Nothing looks crisper than navy and white in the spring.

I wore it with my barely boot cut jeans in the Bermuda Tide wash, 8 petite. This lighter wash is more casual than my Nightfall Wash, so they fit right in on the Bocce Ball court. I ordinally wear my boot cut jeans with a 1 or 1 1/2″ heel but found these worked well with my flat sneakers. fashion blogger jennifer of a well styled life wearing navy starw sweater and blue jeans

I added these faux pearl hoop earrings, similar, a large silver bangle, similar, and these white leather sneakers. FYI- I keep my sneakers nice and white with these Magic Erasers.


Pearls are one of those “gems” that look and feel expensive, no matter their price. I like them with sneakers and jeans as much as I do for dressy occasions. fashion blogger jennifer of a well styled life wearing navy halogen sweater and blue jeans sitting on wall

Are you a fan of faux pearls too?

    Hi, is the sweater a petite or regular? When I click through to Nordstrom, I only see regular. Thanks!

      It’s only available in regular which I’m wearing in L. It’s so soft, I love it.

    Love your happy star sweater.

    I was just scrolling online through the Nordstrom sale and I saw that the Dean Davidson jewelry was on sale there too. The prices even looked a little better. Always glad to see that.

    Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for writing your blog!

    Oh my goodness. I love that sweater! I wanted it for myself but when Jan wrote it would be good for a Dallas Cowboys fan, I knew I had to get it for my sister…

    Love this casual outfit. May I ask if you are wearing petite sizing or misses in the Talbot jeans? I am also 5’4” and the length looks perfect with your sneakers.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

    Stars are big this year and I’m so happy! They are a timeless motif whether in jewelry, clothes or accessories. I noticed that Chico’s has a lot of star pieces right now—in fact, I just purchased their navy Zodiac scarf. Not only is it starry, but it’s real silk!! And, it’s navy as I said, so it’s just about perfect.

    You always look good in navy and jeans (actually, you look good in almost any shade of blue). For some reason, they just suit you; clearly not frumpy, but not Forever 21 either. Just right. Happy Thanksgiving!

    I love this outfit. It’s looks so crisp and neat. I do not know the game but it sounds like fun. I’m a golfer and a pool player. LOL

      If you’re a pool player, you’d probably be very good at bocce. It’s sort of like lawn bowling.

    If you knew me you’d know I love stars. I ordered this sweater and some white sneakers. White sneakers have been on my wish list for a year. I jumped on a pair that are on sale. Thanks for the post and sharing your lovely finds, Jennifer!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

    This is how a few, gorgeous accessories can elevate a casual outfit. Quite often, I find myself wearing something very similar.
    I do have to mention that the color and pattern on this sweater would satisfy fans of a very popular Texas football team! Lol

    Cute outfit! Yes, I love pearls. I especially love the extra long strands that I double, triple, etc. into a necklace. I wear pearl studs almost daily.

      You inspired me to dig out some of my older strands and play with them today:)
