At lunchtime on Wednesday, it was warm enough to wear one of the new jackets I added to my wardrobe for spring.
The white jacket is by IC Collection from ShopMyFairLady.com. Even though I don’t usually go for textures in my clothing, this jacket works well if I wear sleek, smooth pieces under it and leave it open. I needed a jacket that could be dressed up or down to wear while it is still cool, but I wanted something a little different than the mostly tailored pieces I have. It is fun to add a splash of color or a surprise silhouette.
The tank top I am wearing here is the new one from Covered Perfectly. I wore it for the day, but replaced it with another one so that I could show it and the gray top to you in the video below. When you buy two tops, you get one free! Visit Covered Perfectly here. If you have been enjoying my StyleStacks on Facebook and Pinterest you will notice that I often use a Covered Perfectly top because they are so versatile and comfortable to wear.
Pictured above in the studio/sound stage (also known as my kitchen). The jeans I am wearing here are Jag Jeans in the leggings style from Purple Poppy. They are giving us a 10% discount with the code Poppy. I now have the light wash denim in the legging style, the new white ankle jeans didn’t get here in time for the video, but I got those in the mail yesterday. I love them! I also have the straight leg black ones I showed you in an earlier video. A size 6 works best for me in the Jag jeans. (I wear a size 2 in NYDJ and a size 0 at Chico’s.) The black and blue striped top I show you in the video is also from Purple Poppy here.
I haven’t convinced Dillard’s to give you a discount yet, but I got those block heel sandals from there last fall. They are by Gianni Bini. The bag is a couple of years old, and it is by Ralph Lauren. The necklace is from French Kande. The scarf in the banner and also in the video is the silk one here from my shop. (The same style also comes in satin.)
Below is a short video to show you some of the other pieces I have added to my spring/summer wardrobe. You will see me wearing these pieces in blog posts often when the weather warms up a little more. I plan my purchases according to what is missing from my wardrobe or needs to be replaced because it is starting to look worn because it has been through the laundry a few too many times. Planned purchases are made at the beginning of the season so that I can get my size. When I know I will wear certain essential items repeatedly such as white tanks and white jeans; I buy more than one.
