This is a Talbots sweater and scarf from a few seasons back. The pearls are my "train station" pearls that I bought in D.C when our daughter was in grad school there. They are inexpensive glass beads...but I love this strand. I can wrap it two or three times depending if I want it longer or shorter. (The beads are not knotted...so if they ever break there will beads all over the place.)
The sweater is a pinky peach. The lighting makes the color off in some of the photos.
I wear this sweater with navy slacks, black slacks, and even white. I still love this scarf and often wear it in the winter with wool sweaters too.
This sweater has small gold wire buttons, so I wear gold tone jewelry with it sometimes.
This next cardigan is a totally different look.
This is a simple cotton Crown & Ivy from Belks. I love the Chanel look with the solid navy strip around the neck and down the front. It works with skirts, dress slacks, or jeans.
For my trip out of town I want to be "snappy casual" so I will probably wear the pearl strand, with a navy or white tank underneath.
These older navy Chicos slacks match the navy of the sweater. I love when that happens! The slacks are knit, with stretch...good for comfort. These slacks are my go to for all day comfort. And I can throw them into the washer and dry on a hanger. How wonderful is that! I am getting lazy and like for my clothes to be easy.
Pearl earrings/studs will finish the look....as will a comfortable pair of flats.
In a previous post I mentioned that Pat, from Back Porch Musings inspired me to begin "planning" my outfits. I think this will make it easier for when I need to look pulled together. I have been putting together a few outfits over the last couple of days...and it is kind of fun. I am rediscovering clothes that I have not worn in a while. (If I can lose a few more pounds I will have even more pieces from which to choose. ha!)
If I were really on the ball I would snap pics of these outfits and create a collage to print and post on my closet door. I would have a constant reminder of what I could wear. That is on my "to do" list.
Thanks for visiting me today.
