Happy Saturday ladies! It’s finally the weekend, time to relax and spend time with our families. Or lay around all Saturday in pj’s or sweats and binge watch Netflix or my favorite, The Hallmark Channel! I really cannot get over the overwhelming response from yesterday’s post with Tania from 50isnotold. Tania has some really great followers and wonderful internet friends! Go girls!!
For all of the new followers, I thought I might catch you up a bit about me. I was in the Fashion Industry for 15 years, I am a licensed Cosmetologist, but do not practice anymore. My degree is in Business Finance and I tried to retire out in 2014 to no avail! I got bored and went back to work traveling the States as a Corporate Trainer. Traveling was nice, but it sure doesn’t leave much time for grandkids! So last Summer I started this blog, it went live in late July and here we are! I do work as a Marketing Director for a local Boutique here in my home town part-time. I have learned I am not the type of person that can stop work! I need to interact with people daily! LOL!
When I worked in the Fashion Industry, one of the biggest problems that women had, was pulling an outfit together. Some could walk in and grab up a few items and BAM, they were good to go. Most women needed a little help, whether it be visual or us talking to them giving them ideas of items that would make a cute outfit for work, church or weekend, etc. Most wanted to know how to make different outfits out of a few pieces.
When I was getting ready this morning, I thought I would show how I take a few simple pieces and totally revamp an outfit. I picked out a burgundy turtleneck sweater, I got this one from my local Walmart, and paired it with distressed jeans from American Eagle. I chose grey suede booties from Amazon, MVE Shoes Women’s Chunky Heel Cutout Bootie -Comfy Pointed Toe Boots, they are around $25.99. These “shooties” are VERY comfortable, they are so comfortable I went back to Amazon and bought another pair. I have had these for a year and they still look great! I have the gray pair in the pic and a tan pair. I wear the tan pair way more than I ever wear the gray.
The Tassle Necklace I’m wearing is by JBloom Designs called the Naomi, Click Here
To give the outfit a little pop, I added a scarf. This scarf is called The Giving Scarf and I received it at Christmas from the Boutique I work at. I love this scarf, not only for the story behind it but the colors in it are amazing! I looked this one everywhere on the internet and couldn’t find anything that was close except this one. One little accessory can make a huge change in an outfit.
In the next picture, I added a blush crossbody with the scarf, this would be a great outfit if it’s not too cold out. The crossbody is by Nautica with pebbled leather, I purchased this from Burkes Outlet a few weeks back. Here is one that is similar.
If it is colder out, my favorite jacket is a black puffer vest. I throw this baby on with everything…right down to my athleisure wear. That sounds so sophisticated, huh? Us country folks call them leggings! HA!! Brooklyn, my granddaughter who is 4, chose this outfit as her favorite.
Looking at the different outfits by themselves, they all look cute. When I put them in a picture collage, the difference really stood out to me. I added the 3-picture collage below again. I try to follow what Coco Chanel said about accessories, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” Well, I took off a bracelet hahaha!!! Is this too much? I loved this dressy-casual weekend look. What are your thoughts ladies?

Brooklyn and my daughter, Raegan (she’s 18) were in the kitchen area behind me making cookies while I was taking these pictures. So if you notice bodies and flour everywhere – it’s just them making memories! Ha! I’m so glad you stopped by the blog today and I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. I’m spending mine with little Brooklyn – I get so excited when she comes over!! Talk with you girls later!
