Gurl’s, you know what they say about the best-laid plans. Well, my plan for this to be a Friday Favorites post didn’t turn out. I had a post all written, and it is not quite ready for publication. But, I would like to hear comments if anyone bought anything from the last Friday Favorites and see what you liked the best.

I will be traveling next week, so I have “plans” on doing a series for you. You know how I like versatile clothing, so I want to take one pair of pants and style them differently every day next week. I hope that it will help you see all of the possibilities in your closet. Sometimes just buying one or two items can really update your look. So, keep your fingers crossed that those plans actually work out.

I really love this blouse! It has so many eye-catching details, and it is so feminine. First off, I love a v-neckline because it is universally flattering. Plus, I am sure that you have heard me say a million times that it elongates your neck. Secondly, I like the oversized buttons down the front. Anytime that you draw your eye downward, it helps to make you look thinner.

But, it is the color and the sleeves that I really love the most. The name of this color is underwater, and that is a pretty good description. The color is green-ish, gray-ish, blue-ish, so it is hard to describe. This blouse lets you have the look without the puff for all of you who said that you didn’t like puff sleeves. The pleats are a wonderful compromise since they look puffed, but they lay flat.

Plus, I really love these ties on the sleeve. These details are things that you see on an expensive blouse, not one that is under $35.00! I am wearing a medium, and the blouse fits me great.

I know I have the blouse half-tucked in the front (I wanted you to see the pants), but the front is the same length as the back.

Since this adorable patchwork handbag is showing up so nicely, I’ll tell you about it next. This is a crossbody bag in the most gorgeous fall colors! It has a lot of pockets to stuff things and a zip-top so that nothing falls out. It is a great medium size, but honestly…it is the colors I love the most!

Now, about these bootcut jeans! These jeans are soo comfortable; they remind me of Wit & Wisdom. The waistband is wide and comfy, and they have a small amount of tummy control. If there is one that has a full girdle, that is the pair that I need. Lol! I picked the light wash, but these bootcut jeans are also available in medium, dark, and black wash. Plus, they come in 3 different lengths; I chose the tall length.

I’m putting this info in a new paragraph because I want to ensure that you see it. Are you sitting down??? These jeans are under $25.00!!! You’re welcome. Lol!

I’ve styled these driving loafers before because they go with everything, and they are extremely comfortable. This caramel color is great for fall, and I swear it goes well with everything I put on. Plus, if you need more incentives, they are 40% off and cheaper than when I bought them from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

I know many of you got some great deals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but several of you were upset since everything was sold out. Well…a lot of things are back in stock and on sale again. Some things are even cheaper than they were on the NSale. I looked through about 20 of the 218 pages and picked some of my favorite items. I already own some of these, and I have ordered several other things. I LOVE getting my clothing on sale.

Those are a few of my top styles for jeans in 2021. But, don’t get stressed, remember, fashion is supposed to be fun. I want you to feel confident in your fashion choices and look modern and relevant. Stressed out is not a good look for anyone, so relax and try a few styles at a time to see what you like best.

    That blouse in the muted color is really pretty. I just bought a similar color top at Chico’s that is plain in the front, but has 3/4 length bell sleeves and I love it. I wore it with beige wide leg pants. I really like it with jeans on you.
    Hope you can do the series you plan for next week. Sounds exciting! I can use help like that! Can’t wait!

      Kathy, I swear Joe has been a good boy lately, so I don’t have any really good stories to talk about. The few things that he has done, he threatened me if I put it on the blog. Hahahahaha

    Good morning Tania! You look beautiful in this outfit, and that color blouse is gorgeous on you. I just ordered the blouse in the coral color along with the jeans. I so appreciate you sharing great clothing with us that won’t break the bank! I hope that you have a fantastic day and a great trip next week.

    Interesting. I would not have even considered the jeans based on the product images, however they look great on you. I think its the length. They look better long as opposed to at the ankle.

    If I may, I don’t like the blouse with those jeans or color of jeans. 🙁 I see the monochromatic look however the jeans are not giving enough attention to the blouse. It looks messy together:( I would love to see that blouse with an off white or beige pair of pants / jeans. Even a darker pair of jeans would look lovely.
    Thank you for sharing the look I learn a lot from these pairings 🙂
    Have a wonderful weekend!

    I like the color palette of the blouse. Very muted but a versatile color for fall! I do like this sleeve and the buttons down the front as well.thank you for the heads up on the sale and the items selected all look necessary in my book! Love your blog!

      I love, love this blouse but they don’t have that color in my size. Disappointed but we live anyway. Maybe I’m just old fashion but I don’t care for the boot cut jeans. Feel like you need to be 5’10” with long legs. Everything looks good on you and I’m about the same size as you but they make me look short and dumpy. I can’t wear heels but would try this style of jeans if I could. Thank you for showing me different styles and ideas.
