I decided to take a quick trip out of the house, and it was soo good to feel the sun on my face. It was still chilly in the shade, though, so I didn’t linger too long. This short outing called for something more casual since I didn’t have any place fancy to go to. So, come along and join me as I stroll around town.
Not only is this outfit casual, but it is also modern and youthful-looking. This look doesn’t say, “I’m trying to look like my teenage daughter.” Instead, this outfit says, “I am youthful and vibrant; I just happen to be older than a teenager.” You won’t find any belly shirts or short-shorts on this blog so that you can breathe a sigh of relief. You might find distressed jeans; in fact, you can pretty much BET on finding me in distressed jeans a lot of the time. Lol!
The minute that I saw this collared v-neck sweater (polo sweater), I thought about Easter. Am I the only one that this Lavender color reminds them of an Easter Egg? I have become a huge fan of the collared sweater, and I’ve seen many of them in the stores this year. They look casual and classy at the same time, and I like that combination.
The sweater has a relaxed fit and drop shoulders, so I ordered a medium since I knew it wouldn’t be tight-fitting. The sweater doesn’t look oversized or boxy because of the ribbed band at the waist. The sweater also comes in a spice color which is almost the same color as my handbag.
The jewelry that I am wearing today is a mix of metals. I am wearing my small Maggie silver hoops, which are a perfect size for almost everyone. My horizontal cross and Shine script necklace that I wear almost every day are nestled perfectly in the v of the collar. Finally, I added my mixed metal chain Brylee bracelet that features a magnetic closure for easy on and off.
The camel leather tote is so soft and subtle. It is a perfect medium-sized handbag, and that seems to be the size that I prefer these days. I know there is a trend to go toward mini-sized bags, but I can’t go that small yet. My cellphone case is a wallet, so if I am going to go mini, it will just be my phone wallet.
I like that this bag has two separate compartments, which I prefer over a bucket bag style. I like to have a lot of different pockets and zip compartments to puts things.
See, I haven’t given up completely on skinny jeans! Evidently, others aren’t giving up either because these jeans have already sold out. These are from Loft, and they have several others that are very similar, so I’ll link to those for you. Mine has a little distressing and a frayed hem. I am wearing my usual size 30 in these jeans, and they are true to size.
My Tory Burch Minnie ballet flats are several years old, but they are something that I will wear for years to come. Tory Burch is a well-known name that equals quality and style so that these flats will be just as popular next year also. The neutral color is perfect for wearing with almost anything, so that is another reason that I’ll get a lot of wear from them. I am wearing my usual size 9 in them.

The gifts will vary in size and price, and I will pick the winner from the comments that I receive during the week.
