It’s Woo Hoo Friday! I hope you ladies are doing great and ready for the weekend! It has finally gotten down into cooler weather here in NC and I couldn’t be happier! Time to break out those gorgeous scarves!
I am so excited to be teaming up again with Susanne at Thompson Hill Blog today! Susanne has a flair for fashion and her recipes are scrumptious! Susanne has a timeless and classic style, she is super gorgeous and everything she wears looks gorgeous on her. I have loved every one of her blog posts and I am sure you will enjoy her too.
I met Susanne about a year ago through another blogger and over the last year we have become good friends. I know she is always a text away, which is really nice considering she lives a couple states over in West Virginia. Barry says her and I look like we are “at least” cousins, especially when my hair is straight, so check her out and see if you can see the resemblance.
Be sure to stop by and see what Susanne is wearing after you visit with me.
Let’s talk leopard, leather, and plaid!
Since it is getting chilly here it is time to start bringing out the winter scarves and dressing up our outfits. I like to be laid back and casual most days and this is a “go-to” outfit for the weekends. I am styling a black faux leather jacket by Kaari Blue, these come in several colors and sizes from S to XXL. See it here.
I am wearing a regular white tee underneath and black distressed jeans. If distressed is not your thing, here are some great black jeans that will work well too. I like the distressed look, but do not wear them as much as I used too. Do you worry that you are too old for distressed jeans? Well, don’t! I follow a lot of women 40 years and older (some up to 70 years of age) and they all are wearing distressed jeans. It is no longer for the teenagers and young adults, women of all ages are wearing them loud and proud.
My scarf is a red plaid scarf that I purchased years ago, but I found one at DSW that is almost identical here. If you do not have a red plaid scarf for the winter season, definitely put it on your list to buy. I will be showing you multiple ways to wear scarves with your outfits this Winter and different ways to tie them! Red plaid can be used with so many outfits- so it’s a must-have color! I have linked different styles that I am loving in the carousel below for you also.
I decided to add in a little leopard to my outfit and give it a little pizazz. I think the leopard belt gives the outfit a new look, imagine it with a black belt, now don’t you think the leopard makes a slight statement along with the red plaid scarf? I purchased my leopard belt here, but they are low in stock so I am adding different choices below. This is an accessory that is very popular, so if you wait to get one they may be low in stock, or worse…sold out!
These Adela booties in Macadamia are becoming my best friends – literally! I love wearing these boots with jeans, dresses, and leggings. The heel is just a little over 2 inches, which is the perfect heel for walking in and perfect for a day or night on the town. These are from Sole Society and what’s so nice about Sole Society, you can use the Afterpay payment and split your payments up. Perfect! See the booties here.
I have mentioned this Transport Bag on the blog before, but I have not shown this one yet. This is the cheaper alternative to the Madewell Transport Bag I styled here. This one is from Amazon and it’s an “Amazon Choice” product. This bag is deep, has pockets on the inside, a middle zipper section and the feel of this bag does NOT feel like it is under $30! This comes in numerous colors, mine is the simple brown color, see the bag here.
