A few months back, I had the opportunity to wear three Teri Jon dresses for an article and photo shoot featuring several Mother of the Bride/Groom dresses for Paul Simon Women in Charlotte by yours truly and @scoopcharlotte. I sincerely did not know what I was in for until I put the first dress on and my heart skipped a beat when I looked in the mirror. The quality, the designs and the fabrics make these dresses very special and a brand that women have trusted with all of life’s special occasions for over 35 years.
Rickie Freeman, the founder, CEO and designer at Teri Jon is also a wife, mother, and grandmother; and believes that all of these roles combined are her inspiration behind the collections. I love the fact that Rickie tries on each and every design ensuring a proper fit for every woman.
After the article above was published, Teri Jon reached out and asked if I would be interested in working with their company. I literally jumped at the chance!
This brings me back to the dress I am featuring today. My very own Teri Jon dress… needless to say… I am thrilled. I paired this dress with simple jewelry and silver pumps by Michael Kors.
I chose this dress because of both the print but also the beautiful design. It reminded me of dresses that my Mom and Grandma’s wore back in the 50’s . Polka dots are timeless and ageless just like the Duke Mansion where these pictures were taken, in the Myers Park neighborhood of Charlotte.
The Duke Mansion was built in 1915 has been home and host to leaders of the 20th century. Duke’s most lasting legacies, including Duke University, Duke Energy and the Duke Endowment, took shape at the home. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Mansion is operated as a nonprofit with all proceeds being used to preserve and protect this community treasure.
As you can see this community treasure is a wonderful place to stay, celebrate, meet and relax. If you are planning any of the above or looking for a very special venue in the Charlotte area, you have to include the Duke Mansion… where character and charm reside.
Thank you to Teri Jon for sponsoring this post! I am humbled to have featured the brand and this beautiful dress. I may get a commission if you purchase through LIKEtoKNOW.it. However, the links here take you straight to the Teri Jon website.
In closing, I want to thank you for stopping by the blog and I will leave you with a little reminder. "Life is a Party" and it is what you make it. Make it a great week, lovelies!!
My goal is to share ageless style, and endless fun, from a sincerely silver perspective. Including fashion, beauty, and relevant lifestyle information as we share this journey together! And as always thank you for reading my blog!
I was recently asked by a friend what do you miss people asking you about vs when you were younger? I shared my answer immediately. I miss people asking about my goals, personally and professionally. I have always been a goal setter... that's why it's important to me.. And when we are younger, the question seems to come up quite often. What do you want to do? What do you want to be? What's on your bucket list, etc.? At 60, maybe people give up on goals, feel goal setting is not as important or think we don't need goals... but I feel we do.
Today, more than ever before, there is so much I still want to do and be, and look forward to. I feel like I am in the prime of my life, so why not!
When we were younger, it was more difficult to set goals with husbands, kids, work and aging parents. Today we finally have the time to focus on ourselves and we can.
Sixty is the perfect age to re-set or set your goals and it's never too late to achieve life goals. I'd much rather achieve something later in life than to never achieve it!
So what are a few of your goals, my friend? Mine, thanks for asking? I want to write a book, own a Christmas Tree farm with horses, learn Italian and become a sommelier! But don't get me started because my goal list goes on and on!
This question can really get you thinking. I hope you take some time to ponder on your goals and I look forward to your feedback in the comments.
Thank you to Soft Surroundings for sponsoring this post and both great outfits featured on this page. I simply love both looks and the high quality clothing they offer. These complete outfits are from Soft Surroundings with the exception of the cork shoes. You can shop below on my IG or on the LiketoKnow.it app.
Have a great weekend ahead and as always, thank you for reading the blog. My goal is to share chic ageless style and endless fun, from a sincerely silver perspective; fashion, beauty, and relevant lifestyle information as we share this journey together! I truly really appreciate you!
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend. We had a blast with our son, daughter-in-law and two sweet grands. Both my son and my daughter are not fond of social media so you won't see much of my grands except for maybe legs, backs of heads, etc.... which I completely respect.
The weather at the beach was still a bit rainy on Friday and chilly on Saturday. So we did not get a lot of time in the sand and sun but we did get to do a little shopping during naps at the local TJ Maxx. And let me tell you, this TJ's has fab finds... any time of the year.
So I thought, I would share 4 spring outfits built from this quick shopping trip. The best part is that every piece is under $40. Unfortunately, there is no way to link to the clothes as they typically stock different items online than in the stores and even so (as you well know) if you don't by it when you see it at TJ's or Marshall's, there is no going back, cause it's gone.
The first outfit is a casual sweatshirt with pouffy cotton sleeves perfect for spring weather. I am wearing my favorite converse tennis shoes and a pair of Articles of Society frayed jeans, which I linked in my Pearls post here.
Second is a pretty rose-colored tee/top with gold thread around the top. I am wearing jeans from the closet and gold espadrilles bought last year at TJ's.
My third look is a blue and white striped bell sleeve shirt, on sale for under $20, Free People jeans from the closet and my favorite JSlide blue suede shoes.
Last but not least is my favorite of the bunch, tencel joggers in a color I love but find difficult to describe. The tag says "toast" but it is closer to a "buttered rum with a twist of orange." These cool joggers can be dressed up or down. I added black strappy sandals and a black bell sleeve shirt from the closet. The fun, clear bucket bag was also under $20 and a fun accessory for the spring.
The moral of this post is don't shy away from the discount stores, when shopping for your seasonal wardrobe. For just over $100, I found four spring looks that I will wear through summer/fall.
As always, thanks for stopping by the blog. My goal is to share authentic ageless style; fashion, beauty and relevant lifestyle information as we share this journey together! Have a great week!!
