everyone is on the mend at our house. praise the lord! guess it’s time for sparkly earrings, a clutch, and a pair of heels. mr. style and i are headed out on the town. yes, it’s date night which always gives me an excuse to elevate my ootd. or is that ootn? last week, i shared my style uniform – blazer, dark rinse denim, silk blouse, shoes in a neutral color are all on the list. it appears that’s exactly what i reached for to pull this outfit together.
when it comes to blazers, i love the mighty tweed jacket. it’s a perennial a favorite of mine. why? because this blazer adds instant chic to any outfit and takes you to the office or date night with ease. ann taylor has several terrific tweed jackets in stock at the moment. take a look at this tweed fringe jacket or tweed moto jacket.
ann taylor is also one of my favorite brands for denim. love their modern skinny fit! on monday’s blog post i wore this sailor all day skinny jean underneath a grommet lace sweater. today, you can catch a glimpse of the design feature that gives these jeans some oomph – the brass buttons on the pocket. aren’t they cute?

the wind picked up tremendously on our photo shoot making it difficult to keep the bow in place with my favorite pussy bow blouse by ralph lauren. sometimes, you just have to let mother nature take its course and go with the flow. when it comes to bow blouses we might think they are on-trend or off-trend. for whatever reason, i’ve had one hanging in my closet thirty years ago, twenty, ten, even five. which makes me think it’s a classic style instead of a trend.
three cheers for hump day! we’re half-way through the week, ladies.

Very classy! The tweed is gorgeous–always a fave for me, too. And the envelope clutch is great here. Glad to hear you’ve recuperated from the stuff that’s going around. Everyone seems to be passing it around.
it seems as if everyone’s been sick this year. hopefully, the worst is behind us. when mr. style went to the dr. all the nurses and staff were sick. it was one happy coughfest!
I went to ann taylor today and bought those same jeans!! The fit is awesome. Also got the gray and black joggers with the gray sweatshirt w/the black tie sleeve. I need to stay out of that store!!!!
aren’t these jeans fabulous? love the fit. plus, they are so comfortable.. ann taylor is a dangerous place to be these days. love their new collection.
Tweed for me too, please! Nice choices. The details on the jeans are wonderful. Glad to hear you’re feeling better.
I just got this jacket in the mail. No lie, I debated whether to keep it or not because I no longer work full time and am trying to keep my purchases casual. Anyway, I decided it was too cute not to keep!! I will style it with jeans as well. Love your look!
i’m happy you’re keeping this jacket, janie! it’s quite versatile and will take you many places. it doesn’t matter if you dress it up or down. either way it will work.
Oh wow Beth, you look marvellous ! Love the fitted trousers and the shorter jacket.
