CASUAL FRIDAY STYLE WITH TAUPE CUFFED JEANS
The week sure has flown by, and it has been a lot of fun. I’ve slept, relaxed, and eaten more than I ever thought possible. Lol! It took a while to get used to the mode of transportation here in San Pedro. There are very few cars but lots of golf carts, motorcycles, and bicycles. We rented a golf cart while we were here, and we traveled up and down the island’s length, trying to take it all in.
The roads are concrete, so the dust isn’t bad while you’re driving. But, there are a lot of grooves in the roads, potholes, and speed bumps that will jar the teeth out of your head if you hit them too fast. Joe didn’t see one in the road till the last minute, and he stomped on the break. We skidded to a stop just in time and then gently went over the bump. I laughed and told him that was the first time I had ever heard a golf cart’s tires squeal.
I love tunics since you can wear them with leggings without feeling self-conscious. But, I can sometimes struggle to wear them with pants and jeans because I feel like they make my legs look short. Whenever I wear a long tunic, I will usually do a half-tuck to try and elongate my legs. I loved this floral pintuck tunic top, but it is too big for me and has already sold out. I ordered a medium, but a small would have been a better fit. Since every size has sold out, I’ll try to link to some similar tops that would give you a similar look.
You can see how long this tunic is in this photo. This is why they are great for wearing with leggings.
The color of these High-Rise Patch-Pocket Cuffed Jeans is called light taupe grey. I mentioned the color because I don’t see grey in these jeans. I love the patch pockets and the tacked cuff (no worrying about getting the cuffs even) of these relaxed jeans. These are the kind of jeans you can wear all summer long, and they are a great blend of chinos and jeans. These run large, so I ordered a 6, and they fit me great. The jeans are also available in a coriander color and a medium wash.
I love a denim jacket, and you will hear me repeatedly say that everyone needs one of these in their wardrobe. They are a versatile clothing staple, and you can wear them in at least three seasons of the year.
This denim jacket by Wrangler can be styled with a dress, shorts, pants, or a jumpsuit. The jacket is lightweight and unlined, and I love the fit and style. On cold mornings and chilly evenings, this gives me the right amount of coverage to keep me warm. I am wearing a large, and it fits great.
I’m wearing a leather cuff bracelet that my sister made for me as a Christmas present. She asked mom for some of dads belts he was no longer wearing. Then she cut them, added a closure, and adorned them with decorations that meant something to each of the people she was gifting the bracelets to. Mine has a brooch attached that was my grandmother’s, making the bracelet extra special.
I’m also wearing the Adeline Hoop earrings and a Cable Loop Bracelet by David Yurman. The large oversized sunglasses are one of a 3-pack. These are non-polarized, but they do have 100% UV protection. Plus, they are only $20.00 for the 3-pack, so they are inexpensive also. The belt I’m wearing is an old one, but I’ll see if I can find something similar for you.
The last part of my outfit would be my Tory Burch Minnie Ballet Flats. I wear these flats all the time since they match almost anything. I am wearing my usual size 9 in these flats, and I think they run true to size.

I enjoy seeing your posts. You have inspired me with your outfits 🙂 May I ask how tall are you? This helps determine my size as I’m 5’2″. Thank you
Melanie, I’m 5’6” tall.
I’m really liking the new natural color denim this spring. I prefer the actual color of your jeans than the gray it appears to be on the J Jill website – always a pleasant surprise when something is better in real life than it looks in the ad!
I love that your sister made a unique, meaningful and special bracelet out of your Dad’s belts. What a great idea.
I am so glad you have had a wonderful vacation! Look forward to seeing more pictures! Love love love this outfit!
Now that outfit I like and would wear. Very nice.
Your outfit is on point as usual! I really, really love the leather bracelet your sister made for you. It is certainly a treasured gift.
I love the golf cart story! We live in a very rural area, on a private dirt road that dead ends into a county dirt road. Many times after we’ve had heavy rains, deep ruts surprise me as I driving, so I totally get what y’all have experienced. And you don’t always see them until it’s almost too late to slow down. That is a very pretty top!
I like your outfit today especially the print in the top.
I’m wondering how you liked wearing your new bathing suits. Were they comfortable? I’m just starting to think about buying a couple of new ones.
I’d like to know of a nice resort to stay in on Ambergris Island. Which property did you stay at?
I’ve worn several of them and they all are comfortable, well as comfortable as a swimsuit can be. We are at the Grand Caribe. I think it is the nicest resort in the island. Beautiful, great security, and they have a laundry service that does your clothes daily that’s included in the price.
I love your outfits and all look so cute on you, but I am frustrated that by the time I see your blog each day many items are sold out. Because I don’t have the opportunity to go to stores to see items, this is one of the only ways I get to see fashion.
Lorrie, it isn’t the time of day that you are seeing the outfits. Sometimes they are already sold out before my blog publishes. I have to order the clothing, Style it and take photos, then write the post and find the links. A lot of time the items will be sold out by the time all of that happens. It is something that I can’t control.
Will you share your diet and exercise routine?
Kari, I can’t Give details since it is a diet method that someone created and sells.
I love that your sister made bracelets out of belts and decorated it with a brooch that had belonged to your grandmother! What a sweet thing to do! I love it!!! I always love your outfits too!
My mom teases her that she isn’t creative. I guess mom was WRONG! Lol 😂 The bracelet is perfect.
Love today’s look! LOVE, LOVE the jeans …….the pockets, that cuff!!!!❤️
I loved the jeans too!
Love your outfit today!
