happy new year 2020! it’s a new day, new decade and new beginnings. welcome 2020. today’s post is short and sweet. while we’re ushering in a new year, we’re saying goodbye to the holidays, which have kept us all hopping. i don’t know about you, but i’m ready to refresh my home and wardrobe. the decorations are down, and i’m looking at my home with fresh eyes. the same goes for my closet. January is all about new beginnings: new fashion for the new year. but we don’t necessarily have to run out and purchase something new. today, i’m shopping my closet to bring you a brand new outfit with a twist. think Blackwatch plaid is reserved just for Christmas or a holiday party? think again. of course, i wore these adorable Blackwatch plaid pants from J.Crew for my second annual cookie exchange. Talbots also carries a fabulous pair of Blackwatch plaid pants too. come January, why not wear your plaid pants with a vibrant green sweater also from J.Crew last seen on fridays with oscar?
the coatigan (similar here) was last seen in January 2018 on Ann Taylor winter favorites. guess what? it’s still a favorite coat/cardigan to throw on when the temps are on the mild side. y’all know how fond i am of pearls. so why not add a multistrand necklace from J.Crew Factory to add a little personality and pizazz to this ootd. black pumps that i wear on repeat and a black handbag (old, similar here) bring this outfit home.
always love to add a pop of color to brighten my mood. some dreary winter days just need a boost.

pearls whether they’re real or faux are a wardrobe staple of mine. what’s your favorite gemstone?
every woman needs a pair of black pumps on standby. they add subtle sophistication to any outfit.

I have that jacket from Ann Taylor!
I love taking closet favorites and finding a new way to make them look fresh. More of this in 2020 please!
I love the look on you! Great color combination that gives your clothing items versatility.
Happy 2020. I need help! I want I nice pair of black pumps. Not too high. I don’t know how to walk in them. But I want to update my style. I have slight bunions too! Any suggestions?
Easy Spirit makes very comfortable shoes. And I know they carry black pumps. Go check them out.
I just had to chime in to say my “go to” gemstone is also pearls! I have a very old strand of Mikimoto pearls that I can always count on to add that something extra to make me feel all put together! As always, love your site and it helps me remember, that at 67, I’m still as young at heart! Best to you in the New Year!
