I wore a So Slimming ™ collection Ponte skirt from Chico's to dinner last night.
This turquoise silk jacket I bought at Stein Mart earlier this year had never been worn. Now that cooler weather has arrived I paired it with a black tank also from Chico's.
The Ponte Collection™ dress from Chico's is great fitting and very comfortable. I tried it on last week but didn't buy it because I felt it was too short for me. Now that I see these pictures, I realize that I could wear the shorter dress with opaque hose and a bright jacket and still look appropriate. Earlier this year I made a promise to myself not to buy anything else black but as a base with a brighter color near the face it can still work with my softer coloring. I love how comfortable all the pieces are in the Ponte Collection so I will be at Chico's again later today!
Some of you have written to ask why I so rarely wear a skirt or dress. My calves and ankles are thick and too short compared to the rest of my body so I am usually more comfortable in pants. I can never wear tall boots for that same reason. All my boots are the short version.
We all have our little tips and guidelines that we follow to look and feel our best. In sharing some of mine, I hope that you will be inspired to try new combinations of the things already in your closet and to perhaps make your next shopping trip less stressful.
I found these T-Strap heels by BGBGeneration at T.J.Maxx last month. I am wearing nude Calvin Klein hosiery.
Since the rain was pouring down this evening we shot these photos in my living room. That is not what I had planned but sometimes you have to go with the flow (pun intended).
Thanks for reading my blog. I hope you have a great week!
