Our Mother's Day celebration included a fabulous meal prepared for our family, by my sweet sister.
I carried an old BCBG bag and wore jeans by NYDJ, and sunglasses by Kenneth Cole Reaction, all found at T.J.Maxx. I rarely go there anymore, but I got lucky on those visits. The plain white tank is by Peck & Peck via Stein Mart.
The color and texture of this jacket are not typically found in my bag of tricks. My usual choices include smooth surfaces, bold, saturated colors and sleek lines. I made this work for me by making sure all the other elements were structured and plain.
The sandals are from last year. They are by Vince Camuto via Belk. I found them on sale at the end of the season, so I bought two pairs. I know I will wear these often because they go with everything. Last year, I wore out a similar favorite style by Jessica Simpson.
The statement necklace is from an elegant store in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. This estate piece immediately captivated me!
We always visit Finely House Couture and Carriage Trade Antiques when we are in Blowing Rock. You never know what unusual treasures might be waiting there. Our friends who own these shops possess impeccable taste.
This video is in response to a challenge I received from someone who commented on a Facebook post.
Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!
