cant’ decide what to wear when monday morning arrives? your work attire should never be boring. even when wearing your tried-and-true separates. look for details that will set the humble blazer apart from the rest of the pack. today, the blazer i’m wearing has snaps instead of traditonal buttons. add a zipper detail and this blazer has modern and fresh written all over it. what’s even better is that this blazer can pull double-duty. in today’s version it has a peplum flounce. but when the peplum is unzipped it converts the lady-like blazer into a cropped jacket. how’s that for versatility? the color scheme for today’s ootd is definitely in the neutral zone. so my handbag and pumps follow suit. since neckerchiefs are all the rage this season i snuck in a silk scarf to tie this ootd together with a little flair. how’s that to start the week off in style?
p.s. many of you have asked about CAbi a brilliant line of clothes that is sold through a CAbi stylist. the business model is much like Mary Kay. that said, I am unable to directly link to specific product. only their website.

Love the blazer, very versatile… Glad to hear about neckerchiefs making a comeback…I have lots of smaller square scarves that would work. Looks like some sort of open air market behind and below you, maybe a farmer’s market? xoxo
well now you can pull all those small scarves out of storage. it’s a fun addition to the wardrobe this season!
Beth I have always worn scarves around my neck or what I love to do is tie one on my bag. I am looking for bandana print handkerchiefs now to wear with some of my stripes and checks. You look fabulous in your scarf!
Love the scarf and that blazer is going to be so versatile, great find. As always you look marvelous and you have killer legs!! Have a wonderful week and thank you for making style attainable to most women!! Kathysue
i’m loving the resurgence of neckerchiefs! a fun way to add a little pizazz to any outfit.
thanks, sweet friend for stopping by the blog! always love to hear from you.
I love the jacket! So chic! Also, so glad to see you wearing a neckerchief – I wore one last week and hoped it was still in style! (and because you are wearing one, I KNOW it is!) 😉

Last night for some reason couldn’t sleep and took my iPad and browsed on Chicos website and found you. What a relieved to see a woman more or less my age dressing so chic. I’ve had for some time a style crisis. I’ve been struggling with weight and it is so hard to dress well. There is nothing out there to tackle our niche and you have come to give us hope. Today, even though I’m still with same fat dressed much better, felt glamorous and went with my friend to Miami Beach to have lunch showing the best of me.
