today, it’s all about spring arrivals JC Penney. yes, jacques penne, as my mother lovingly referred to this brand has some adorable and affordable spring clothes. recently, i’ve had the pleasure to partner with JC Penney on Instagram the past few months. but i thought my blog readers might enjoy a glimpse of the cute outfits i put together.
when you scroll through today’s post, you will see three very distinct ootd’s – nine-to-five, date night, and casual chic. which goes to show there’s lot’s of variety at JCP these days. and i appreciate a brand that’s willing to take a chance with bright colors and on-trend items. if i’m ever on the fence when it comes to current trends, i head to an affordable brand. there’s no need to shell out major cashola because those trendy items might be here today then gone tomorrow.
this nine-to-five ootd could easily translate to a weekend look. this midi pleated skirt offers a rainbow of colors, but i zeroed in on yellow which is seen everywhere this spring. a cute yellow cardigan, white tee, and black belt add casual sophistication. but don’t forget to add a pair of sandals for an easy breezy look.

wide-leg pants are on trend this year with its flattering fit and elegant drape. it’s only fitting JCP would choose coral for this dreamy pant as it’s the Pantone color of the year. add a jazzy top (old, similar here), a pair of metallic sandals and a clutch handbag and i’m ready for date night with mr. style.
c/o pants | similar top | shoes | similar handbag
denim | c/o top | c/o jacket | c/o shoes | c/o earrings | similar handbag | sunglasses | lip shade exotica
out of the three outfits this last one has to be my favorite. any guesses as to why? that’s right; a tweed jacket always makes my heart go pitter patter. and this one is no exception. pair this snazzy jacket with an on-trend tie top, blue jeans, sandals, and drop earrings. it’s an outfit made in heaven for this casual chic girl!
all right, gang, we’re halfway through the week. let’s go put a smile on someone’s face today including ours.

I love so many of your looks. I would love to see you partner with The Walking Company and to show us how to style outfits with “comfort” shoes. I can wear nearly all of their shoes and nearly no one else’s.
Have you tried Vionic shoes? They are fabulous and a little more stylish than The Walking Company. I am wearing some cute flat mules that look like Gucci.
Hi, Love these outfits! Brought to mind that I have a sleeveless tunic, on the flowy side. I don’t wear sleeveless without something over it. Question….what length sweater or shrug should I wear? Any help will be much appreciated.
I’m wondering if you removed the shoulder pads for the tweed jacked from Penney’s? Did you order your regular size. I ordered the jacked but the shoulder pads seems unusually large. I do love it with the jeans and yelllow blouse.
I have found some stylish tops on a recent shopping trip to JC Penney’s. I wore one of the tops to work yesterday and received a lot of compliments. My husband remarked on the top twice about how wonderful it looked on me. Cannot beat the prices at JC Penneys either!
I love all your looks and the way you put pieces together. You really pull off so well what some of us cannot: fashionable shoes!
Do you ever wear “comfort” shoes such as Naot or Reiker? These days some comfort lines have upped their game with styles that don’t shout GRANDMA like they used to. Birkenstocks are even back among the fashionable.
Many times an outfit can fall flat without the right shoes. What tips do you have for those of us who cannot wear more than an inch heel or pointy toes?
You make all clothing look beautiful. I nearly always click the links. But I hesitate to buy the actual garments because of variable sizing. Would you please consider telling us readers what sizes you are wearing like some other bloggers do? The sizing info on most websites is pretty minimal and often not keyed to the specific garment. It would be some helpful.
JCP is one of the few local stores with styles that fit and flatter my petite size. Loving Liz Claiborne and Worthington. Gloria Vanderbilt also a favorite.
Beth, absolutely stunning! Color, color, color! This will inspire all of us to shop for spring. Thanks for the inspiration.
Stunning colors! Everything always looks great on you dear Beth. You are my style icon:). Renata xo
You look simply stunning in yellow! The outfit with the tweed jacket, yellow blouse, jeans, and royal sandals is by far my favorite! I would replicate that it a heartbeat.
I agree. “It’s an outfit made in heaven!”
