New Age Denim

It’s February, still winter for some but here it’s mild.

Denim has always been timeless.  The styles just evolve over the years.  This year we are seeing a lot of the distressed look.

 Whether it is torn  along the legs or just an uneven jagged-style hem.

I just purchased this pair from Old Navy. They were originally $49.99 but were on sale for $35.

I thought they were super cute, esp. the darker wash.

Only the bottom hem is unfinished.

I paired it with a lightweight over-size type blazer which is also big this spring!

Here are a few others for example:










(These I found in Glamour magazine)

 You can see there are different styles to choose from.


Whether you layer up or just throw on a light jacket of some sort, it works.

Until next time

Happy Shopping!



Funny how new trends come in and are identified in a certain way.

While trying to stay current and express new ideas, the fashion industry  likes to shake things up by introducing  “a new style.”

This “new” style is the Coatigan. By definition it’s the combination of a coat and a cardigan sweater. Great for this time of year.

This new trend can be lighter in weight so that layering can make the difference on how warm you want to be!

I went searching for some examples:



































They can be with or without buttons as shown above. I found these two at a Zara store.

 Both moderately priced. They look like a coat but are sweater material.

I found this checked one at Old Navy.


















All of the coats were under $80.00.  The one at old Navy was only $50.

I bought one from Nordstrom Rack. I love the color, very neutral.












So cute and only $39.99.

Version 2












You can find them anywhere with prices as high or low as you would like to go.

They are great for layering and in-between weather.





BACK to the 90’S – Slip Dresses

Photo on 5-27-16 at 11.08 AM

 I know it has been awhile since my last post. We were in the midst of moving. What a chore!

Now, it’s back to the 90’s! The trend of the moment – Slip Dresses.  So big this summer.

 I found some cute ones in the magazines. They even accessorize with shoes.




My opinion is notice the model above can pull this off because she is younger.

 For most of us over the age of 40, 50, or even 60, there should probably be some adjustments.

I purchased this one at at a small boutique in Houston called Graceanna’s. It’s longer, two layers, so less clingy.





It was only $40.  For a trend that is my favorite price. If you don’t wear it often you didn’t waste a lot of money.

They can range a lot higher.

Love the neutral color.

This is one of my favorite places to shop.

It would be fun to accessorize with shoes, purses, and jewelry. For example:

Back in May I had a suggestion of chunky jewelry for summer.  What a great idea. Metallic shoes also a plus.

So fun to see what else you can come up with.  Send me your ideas. Would love to hear them.


Monochrome Looks for May – Daytime

Gals, can you believe it’s May already?

Where has the year gone? It’s getting warm outside and colors for summer are getting lighter.

Trending now are outfits in monochrome colors.

Most often in beige, tan, or greys.  Since both are neutral and light shades, they make a great choice.

You can do so much with these neutral colors.

Last month one of the comments I received was to show ideas for shorts or capris. So I decided to show these together.

Here’s some monochrome sets to try:







This picture is showing neutral light greys

Below is an example using shades of beige – tan.












The shorts are Khaki & Company ( from Sam’s Club) similar & similar here.

The tops can be any tank or t-shirt.

The first sweater I have featured previously: Cabi, the other I picked up at Burlington.

I like the idea of light-weight sweaters because air conditioning can be cool indoors sometimes.

They also can be taken off,  so more versatile.


  • Add bright color accessories

  • Try sneakers or any sandal to dress it up or down

  • Use mixed textures of similar hue
