After a super busy week and feeling badly that I got behind... I wanted to share a look that makes me happy. A tee, jeans and sneakers. As we all know, we cannot be dressed to the max all the time and I love a casual jeans day!
My name is Jan... as you probably know. And my middle name is Ellen... which you may not know. For years, I have received mail and people will mistakenly call me Jane. In fact, Mr. Silver likes to tease and call me Jane, too! I am so used to it... I now love the name Jane. So when I saw this cute tee at J. Crew... I grabbed it! I cannot say I am a "Jane of all trades." but I like to try!! AND then, I saw the pink glitter sneakers and was done! The makings of a casual, jeans day, outfit. I continue looking for pink and white seersucker shorts for the heat of the summer but have not found them yet!! If you spy them...give me a shout.
There is something about glitter on my feet that makes me smile (possibly my inner young self!) Do you wear shoes that have glitter on them? And do they make you happy, too? I kinda feel like dancin. :) I should also mention my madras bucket hat. It is special because it was my Dad's and I always miss him around Father's Day.
I hope you enjoy the look. I have linked my Instagram and LIKEtoKNOW.it below.
Have a great weekend and as always, thank you for reading the blog. My goal is to share chic, authentic and ageless style; covering fashion, beauty, and relevant lifestyle information as we share this journey together! I always appreciate you!
I try not to do trendy. However, these fun Palazzo (pants) jeans feel a bit that way to me. According to Wikipedia (here) and others, Palazzo pants have been around since the 1930's and '40's. In fact, Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich were all huge fans and many women still feel they are avant-garde.
I found these fun pants, with snaps up the side at a trendy boutique in Texas, maybe another reason they feel trendy. But I have to say... I love them. I'm not sure everyone will like them but know that you will see them again with different looks this summer, and on my Instagram account. Speaking of Instagram, please follow me there which links to my blog and a shopping app called LIKEtoKNOW.it, for your smartphone. See the links below. You can shop all of my looks or similar there!

We all have those weeks! And I am glad to put last week behind me and move on but thought I would share with you a little with you.
Last Sunday night after watching our team's awful playoff game, I got that terrible stomach flu. I barely surfaced till Tuesday afternoon as it hung around. That night my Mom had a mild heart attack and we quickly met her at the hospital. Thankfully, after two procedures, care and rest in the hospital, she is back home and feeling much better!
Mom is a strong, independent, fierce, 80 (plus) year old that does things her way!! She still lives on her own with her two little dogs, drives herself, plays bridge 2X a week and enjoys life with her family and many friends.
My family is so blessed to have her in our lives and what a loving person she is. Who was she worried about last week? Not herself but me! She was worried that I had not gotten enough rest after the flu and spending the night and days with her. Talk about a mother's love!
Hoping to get back to normal this week but will be spending a lot of time with Mom till she is back in the driver's seat...so to speak.
I am wearing a cute plaid shirt from one of my favorite boutiques, Luxe Angel in Charlotte, a grey Eileen Fisher sweater from the closet, #ftc and jeans, also from Luxe Angel, which happen to be some of my new favorites. The brand is Articles of Society and they are a dark gray with a raw/cut hem. The fit is great and so is the price. In fact, they are still available here. My boots are Ralph Lauren from the closet, which I bought on sale at Belk last year for $7. They have the best sales. I have linked some similar boots for you.
Hope your week is great and thanks for stopping by as always. XXOO
Happy Wednesday lovely friends,
Tell me that you are having a great week so far! I sure hope so. Mine has been productive and fun. In fact, Mr. Silver and I found a new place (to us) that serves good wine and craft beer, not too far from our house. We enjoy having a drink together to wind down the day! This little place was the perfect spot. Not the original plan for a photo shoot, but hey, Que Sera, Sera!
With all the hubbub around Rose' or blush wine, I have jumped back on the bandwagon (as I used to love it years ago), pun intended. I find it light and easy to sip when the temperatures are hot or year round, depending on your palate. And if you have not tried a Frose', I would highly suggest it. Here is a fun recipe, that is simple to make and quite refreshing. Tip: I use stevia instead of sugar.
One of my dear friends recently gifted me this beautiful blush top from Zara Woman. She had bought it in Italy and never had the chance to wear it. Being the friend that she is, she knew it was my style! So sweet because I fell in love with it. In fact the blush color is so on trend!! Thank you again, MJ!! I am also wearing Free People Gummy high waist jeans, Shoes from Nanette Lepore, earrings from SUGARFIX by BaubleBar from Target and a cute little HOBO CrossBody clutch.
Sure hope your week continues to trend towards great and that you have fun plans for the weekend. We will be caring for a set of the grands and are so looking forward to it!
As always, thank you for reading...cheers until next time! XXOO
