Style Diary – Camel Coat

Work Week - Camel Coat

Camel Coat

Yes, we all need one.  No…we do.  Let’s just accept this as fact and get one.  One less decision to make, right?

Where to Wear?

Certainly wear this to work, wear it to dinner, church, cocktail party, drinks after work, etc.  This is one of those outfits that is appropriate for most occasions that come your way.

Investment Pieces

Let’s just say all of these pieces are an investment.  That will just make things easier.  And on this post, we are all about easy.


Remember how we discussed the cost of certain pieces in my sets?  You don’t.  Well, that is certainly OK.  Let’s discuss it again, then. 

I choose pieces that will be most flattering in the creation of the set.  Some of these pieces, like the VB dress shown, are quite expensive.  I am not suggesting that you go and buy these expensive pieces (although if your budget allows, then by all means, go for it), I am recommending the “look” that the pieces are showing. 

You can create most of my looks by purchasing all of the pieces at Forever 21, let’s say, and spend less than $100 on the entire outfit – including the purses. (But probably not including the jewelry – sorry for that). 

So, purchase your clothes wisely.  If you like the look that is presented in the sets I show you, then by all means, imitate it, but do so while staying within your budget.  Yes, you do have a budget – we all do.  We shall discuss that at a later date. 🙂  You are wise consumers!  Way to go!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by.

Casual Fridays – Lavender and Cream

Spring with Rebecca Minkoff's Perfect Jacket


A beautiful color for spring, no doubt.  There are so many shades from which to choose.  Can you wear lavender?

Where to Wear?

I had casual work Friday’s in mind in designing the above look, but it can certainly be worn to many other events.

Wear it to work on a regular work day if you environment is more creative and casual, wear it when going out with your friends, wear it on a dinner, lunch or brunch date, wear it to the movies, shopping, even traveling.

Investment Pieces

The watch and earings are certainly investment pieces.  Those would work with most any outfit.

The bag has such a classic look and the color is perfect for spring and summer.

We all need a pair of white, or cream, skinny jeans, don’t we?  I just find that these are hard for me to wear.  I love the look, but have not been successful in wearing them.  Perhaps, being a women of a certain age, I’ve gone past my years of being able to wear white skinnys.

Happy Friday, my friends!!  You’ve done a great job this week, now go meet those friends for happy hour and relax and enjoy yourself!!

Brocade Skirt

Brocade Skirt


Evidently, brocade is in for fall.  I love the look, but don’t like it on me.  I find that it to be too heavy and it makes me feel smaller than I am.  Since I’m petite, that isn’t usually a good thing.

This outfit is styled pretty casual.  You could wear it to work on casual Friday, or any day, if your office is always casual; you can wear it to shop, have brunch, dinner with friends, etc.  It’s a pretty versatile outfit.

When it gets really cold, add some tights, boots and a coat.

Thanks for stopping by!!  Y’all are terrific – and not just because you stopped by. 🙂
