Love the cool uneven hemline and the on trend Ikat print in ocean blues and spring greens.
This fab skirt even has a little half slip built in.
(This is the same embarrassed smile I had in most of my childhood pictures. Gee, I could’ve saved this shot for the backyard, right?)
I have a feeling I’m going to be spending a lot of time this spring in this pretty Embroidered Scalloped Hem Top with such lovely detail around the neckline and the hem. I love the 3/4 length sleeve and lightweight soft fabric. Check out the top in beautiful Sea Mist and Sunset Coral too.
A big thank you to Chadwicks for sending me this lovely outfit to review!
Do you love the cool look of pattern mixing but aren’t sure if you’re doing it right or you just don’t have the time to bother with it? This top is the perfect solution! The patterns are pre-mixed! Stripes on the front with a leopard herringbone pattern on the back. Love this! Of course like most style bloggers, I’m happy to mix patterns on my own, but I still love this top!
And hey, I finally found some boyfriend jeans I really like.
Yay Old Navy!
Mixed pattern top – Charlotte Tarantola (Details Willow Glen) (exact sweater here, two other cute sweaters here & here)
I felt a bit like Goldilocks recently looking for a chambray shirt. The shirt was either too big, too small, too dark, too light, too short, too stiff, or too boxy. So this middle-aged Goldilocks was thrilled to finally find this shirt that was just right! It’s Cloth and Stone (an Anthropologie brand) and I found it at Crossroads Trading, a store with new and gently used clothing to buy, sell, or trade.
It was the perfect color and length for me and so soft too. Isn’t the back detail cute?

Here are a few of my favorite Valentine’s Day inspired looks from last week …
Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust is looking hip and chic in her plaid sweatshirt and leather skirt.
Alice of Happiness at Mid-life is a feminine romantic vision in pretty polka dots.
How adorable is Chioma of Chioma’s Evolution of Style in her Barbie pink skirt and denim jacket?
Miriam of Farm Girl outdid herself this week with this precious Valentine’s Day look. Love those red tights!
Laura of I Do DeClaire looks fabulous in this cozy red sweater and those great pattern pixie pants!
Welcome to the FUN FASHION FRIDAY link up party! So excited that last week’s maiden voyage was such a success and thanks so much to all the fabulous ladies who linked up!
Here’s my look for the party today …
Close up of the bead trim …
When I came out in this sweater, the hubby said, “Where in the world do you even buy something like that?!” LOL. I love his funny reactions to my fashion sense. And I’m going to take it as a compliment whether or not he meant it as one!
So where do you buy a crazy fabulous sweater with ribbon and bead trim? The thrift store!
I had planned to pair the sweater with some flared jeans and clogs for a totally 70’s look, but the proportions just didn’t work. I went with skinnies and flats and was pleased with the results. What do you think?
The very best part of the sweater? It makes a charming little clink & tinkle when I walk! I wanted to do the twist all day! Hey, did I ever mention fashion can be fun?!
And speaking of fun, I thought it would be cool to feature a few of my favorite fun looks from last week’s link up. So hard to just pick a few! But here they are …
Well, I’ve decided to try my hand at this link up party business. I have so much fun at everyone else’s party, that I figured it was time to throw my own! It will start this Friday and be called FUN FASHION FRIDAY! Because fashion should always be fun, but it should be most especially super duper fun on FRIDAYS! The party starts Thursday evening through Saturday evening. Fellow fashion bloggers, come by and link up! Readers, stop by and get introduced to new blogs! Come join in the fun! Now an outfit … here’s what I wore for a weekend breakfast out with the hubby.
Santa brought me these fab Michael Kors suede wedge booties. So cute and comfy, and cozy and warm with the shearling lining (MK Rory Bootie) He also brought me this cool Lucky Brand jacket. Yeah, Santa is good to me!
The jacket is similar to my little moto jacket which is probably why the hubby thought it looked so much like me. But the color is bit darker, the length longer, and it’s made of a cool yarn-dyed textured fabric(with faux leather details) … plus he picked it out for me … enough reasons to keep it and enjoy it! (Found it online in red and on sale here!)
The soft pretty scarf was a gift from my dear friend, Glenda (a little birdie told me she got it at Macy’s). The chunky sweater was a Zara after Xmas sale purchase. Also wearing – Old Navy jeans, Readers.com glasses, and an Oryany handbag.
Earrings – Tilly’s (loving these lightweight earrings that I’m seeing everywhere!)
Cuff bracelet – J. Crew (great for small wrists) Chain bracelet – so old that I have no idea where it came from!
