Just because I’m traveling in a trailer this week doesn’t mean I’ll be comfortable wearing any old thing. My clothes need to be functional for where I am but also fit my style recipe. I struggle with overly casual clothes and always try to feel pulled together. I’m the woman whose friend phoned prior to a backyard picnic and said, “Remember Jennifer, this is casual!”. LOL.
Welcome to this week’s Hit Your Style Sweet Spot, my weekly collaboration with Pam Lutrell.
Your Style Sweet Spot is when you know your appearance is sending the message you intend and feel confident you look your best.
We’ve set up camp along the Oregon coast, and the weather is brilliant. There’s nothing wishy-washy about the climate here. It’s either warm and sunny or raining cats and dogs with blustery winds off the ocean.
It’s sweater and sturdy shoe weather. I love this blue cashmere sweater, but discovered when I put it on that it has pills. If I were at home, I’d have my sweater shaver to remove them. Who thinks to bring a sweater shaver in an RV? Not me, so I ignored them.
I’m wearing my favorite earrings from my Mom. I inherited several things from her, but she bought these while we were on a special trip together to Ireland, so they remind me of her and the fun we shared.
We heard train whistles off and on throughout the day, so when we found these tracks, we investigated.
This historic steam locomotive is the Oregon Coast Scenic Railroad. It chugs along the Tillamook Bay and gives views of the gorgeous coast.
My Soft Surroundings Denim Metro leggings are perfect for this weather. Nothing binds and they give where I need them to.
I’m so glad I tossed these Dansko shoes in my bag. I loved and depended on their comfort during my years working retail. Nothing has changed. They’re not hip looking, but they’re supportive, keep my feet dry and are very comfortable. They’re ugly in a cute way and very sensible for where I am.
We spent the afternoon at the beach. The vampire in me wrapped my scarf around my neck for extra sun protection.
We stayed where we were, well into the evening and enjoyed the light show, mother nature put on.
Tossing on the scarf, earrings and French Kande bracelet upped my confidence to Hit My Style Sweet Spot. Without them, I would have felt rather dull and frumpy.
Now let’s go over and see how Pam hits her Style Sweet Spot.
