Let’s face it… leopard is on trend. It’s a classic, it’s a neutral (according to Jenna Lyons) and it comes back every fall season with a roar.

This fashionista is not complaining as I love leopard in all forms. Belts, purses, shoes and most of all on clothing.

Popping in your inbox on Monday to show you how I styled a casual leopard look and then dressed it up for a dressier look… both with some fun new jeans. My top is from Anthropologie. The jeans are a US brand called Just Black denim and they fit extremely well. I found them at Katyloo Boutique, in Ft. Mill, SC. They have a website for online ordering here. Everything else is linked below on LIKEtoKNOW.it. Just click on the pictures below.

Glitter on my Feet

Fashion, ShoesJan CorrellComment

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!

Palazzo Pants

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! Follow this link, for a  video on how to use it.  Then follow me and any other influencers you like!!  You can also reach out to me for help!!

This is where I nearly fell in the fountain!!  HA!

Ready for the New Week...

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 Mom and I

My Mom and I

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

Rose', Blush and Lace

FashionJan Correll4 Comments

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

 

 

 

 

One of a Kind Jeans

Fashion, Jewelry, LifestyleJan CorrellComment

Hi Friends,

As you may know, my family is everything to me and I count myself one lucky girl that I recently got to spend extra time in Texas, with my daughter and her family. So while there, got to do a bit of sightseeing, which included a visit to Gruene Hall, the oldest dance hall in Texas.  If you like music like I do, this place is one for the bucket list.  You can read more about it here  but the likes of Loretta Lynn, Willie, Lyle Lovett and Leon Russell are just a few of the artists that have performed there.  A couple years back, my daughter, husband and I did enjoy a band there one evening and a couple of beers....what fun evening.   But this particular day (for the photo shoot), the Bacon Brothers (Kevin Bacon) were playing that night and had just arrived in their motorcoach.  I tried everything to get my kids to go with me... just in case Kevin broke out in a Footloose dance... but it did not work out.  Next time!!

The town of Gruene, just outside New Braunfels, offers a quaint perspective of small town Texas.  Fun shopping, good restaurants and the chance to tube in the cold, clear water of the two local rivers.  

For my visit to the one and only Gruene Hall I chose one of a kind jeans.  Who can truly say they have "one of a kind" jeans.  Luckily, some of us can say,"I do!"  These "holy" jeans are from Punkie's Place and feature Our Lady of Guadalupe and serape print fabric! Contact Punkie for adding these awesome jeans to your wardrobe! This black silk blouse is from the closet but find similar in the here.  My espadrilles are Sam Edelman and if you missed them in a previous post, they are super comfy... I would grab them while you still can as they will take you through the fall!  These cool Quay Australia Vivienne Aviator Sunglasses are a wardrobe staple and at this price... I am adding them in Metallic, too!  This snakeskin Hobo clutch is a classic and can compliment any outfit... and after 10 years continues to offer style.  Similar styles below.  Last but not least, the skull bracelet by Tarina Tarantino is over the top! Check out all these items in the gallery at the end of the post!

Even though I did not get to see the Bacon Brothers, every time I go to the New Braunfels area, Gruene Hall will be on the list; good music, good bands and good company!  And maybe, just maybe, I will be footloose!  

Until next time and as always, thanks for reading!
