Misook - Dressing for Success

Hi Friends,

Helping others be successful has always been a passion of mine.  This could be helping a woman considering the transition to silver hair shine, a person trying to become more relevant as she/he ages or mentoring a millennial to find their true joy.  Sales leadership has been my lifelong career and I recently have been doing some sales consulting.  I love helping companies, sales leaders, and salespeople be successful.

I believe that as a modern, ambitious woman it is important to look the part.  And to me, the biggest part is looking and feeling CONFIDENT every day!   I was recently contacted by the Misook brand and was aware of the brand since three of my favorite blogging influencers were recently promoted by the brand.  Check out these three fabulous bloggers Beth, Tanya, and Cathy featured here.  Needless to say, I was more than thrilled to collaborate too, based on the quality and stylish designs.  I feel that quality, style and elegance are what help us feel confident in the clothes we wear.  If we buy less quantity, but higher quality, we can never go wrong.  Read more about this wonderful brand and how Misook Doolittle got her start here.  I also loved the fact that Misook uses silver-haired models to promote their brand.  BRAVO!!

As you can see I chose this beautiful Faux Suede Moto Jacket.  I love the gorgeous gray color and the stylish design.  This jacket can be dressed up for an evening out or used for a more casual look.   I am wearing a black pencil skirt and black turtleneck, gray chandelier earrings; J. Crew, MAC lipstick,  patterned stockings and black suede pumps by Guess. I am carrying my favorite notebook by Leuchttrum 1917, ruled slim.   Check out the gallery below for all of the shopping links.

These photo's were taken at the Ballantyne Hotel in Charlotte, NC.  The perfect place for meetings and events and where I have had many meetings over the years.  It's a fabulous venue.

Baby It's Cold...

FashionJan CorrellComment

Hi Friends,

Another weekend on the books (which went too fast) and ours was spent, taking down Christmas decorations, and painting a dresser and shelf for our grand baby girl arriving later this month!

It was extremely cold for our area over the weekend and today. If you are familiar with snow and ice in the south, snow melts quickly and the ice hangs around and can be treacherous.  Since the temperatures are still in the teens, I have a constant chill.  Therefore, I broke out the wool and everything else warm in my closet.  

This pea coat is a J. Crew Majesty Pea Coat in navy, which also comes in Marigold and Grey.  The navy is SO but they bring back this classic every year.  The scarf is a BP Heritage Plaid Square Scarf from Nordstrom, but any warm scarf will do.  I love leather gloves and have a number of them in different colors...the red ones I am wearing can make any winter outfit pop!  

I hope it is nice and warm where you are and if not... that it warms up soon.  It  is predicted to be in the upper 60's here next weekend.  What a change!!  Have a great week!

As always, thanks for reading, 

Jan

A Casual NYE

Fashion, Lifestyle, ShoesJan CorrellComment

Hi Friends,

I hope your holidays were extra special!  We had so much fun and joy spending time with family and friends.  

Mr. Silver and I are having a quiet NYE at the beach with dinner scheduled at our favorite restaurant on the water tonight.  So my outfit reflects the casual day ahead.  The t-shirt is one of my favorite Christmas gifts, from my daughter and SIL, custom made from Thug Life Shirts!  It reads "my favorite people call me Nannie!" LOVE!!  My cardigan is vintage J Crew, in metallic silver, paired with my "holy" denim jeans and fun silver metallic Michael Kors shoes.  Check out the photos below for links!

I don't know how you felt about this crazy year of 2016, but I plan to take all the great memories into 2017 and leave the rest behind.  Cheers to 2017 being the best year ever!!

As always... thanks for reading!

Make your own {Holly Jolly} Statement

Fashion, Jewelry, DressesJan CorrellComment

Hi Friends, 

Hope your week has been great and that your holiday season is starting out fun! Getting ready this week for one of many upcoming holiday parties and decided to put together a few different holiday outfits for you.  Two are dressy and a couple more casual and fun; Holly Red, LBD, Casual Plaid and Naughty!  Please check the gallery for all the details.  

In my opinion, the most important point in planning an outfit for any occasion is to make sure that you are comfortable and feel great about what you are wearing! That way you can relax, enjoy family and friends and feel confident.  Then, as the night unfolds and you feel like dancing on the table, (if your host does not mind) go for it!  And have a holly jolly great time!!
