Living near the coast in California, I’ve come to expect fickle weather this time of year. Days can swing from cool and dreary to clear and warm and back again within hours. So lightweight jackets I can throw on over my tee shirts and jeans are among my most sought after wardrobe items. Finding jackets that hit the sweet spot between casual and polished can be a challenge.
I mentioned this jacket on Monday, and wanted to show it to you in an outfit. This bright navy color is a versatile neutral in my wardrobe, but I would have loved it in an ivory or camel color too (no such luck this season). I’m wearing a regular Small in the jacket. (Tee: Small, jeans: 27)
Accessorizing a jeans and tee shirt outfit…
During the summer, jeans and a tee shirt is my default setting. I love the Everlane box-cut tees, as they’re one of the few “regular” sized tees that aren’t too long on me. 😆 The fabric is organic cotton, and lightweight but still substantial. They’re a budget-friendly option (and you can save more if you purchase 3.)
Even if I’m not going anywhere special, I like to add a few simple accessories to feel more “dressed.” These little Madewell bandanas have become another summer staple. They come in a bazillion colors/prints, and not only add some color near my face, but keep the chill off my neck when the ocean breezes pick up. The cabuchons on the bracelet echo the color of the scarf.
Live on Instagram…
I’ll be joining the Over 50 Style Team this Friday at 11am PT / 2pm ET for another Live chat! Last week we shared some of our favorite makeup products (you can watch HERE) and received a lot of questions about skincare. So this week’s topic will be skincare.
And next Tuesday, the 15th, I have a very special LIVE planned…I’ll be chatting with Manina and Rachel from Red Leopard about color, hair color/going grey, and style! You won’t want to miss this one! Join us at 11am PT / 2pm ET / 7pm UK.
