There is no luck except where there is discipline. Irish Saying


Hi Friends,

Hope everyone had a great week.  I thought I would kick it off with an Irish saying or two in honor of my Irish friends! Aren't we all Irish on St. Patrick's Day?!

Leading with a green theme, this stylish bomber jacket is from Target's Who What Wear Collection.  It is sold out on-line but available in your local stores.  It is a great addition to your spring wardrobe and on sale as well! These green pants (a perfect color match), FTC (from the closet) are vintage Talbots. These black earrings are called Corey by Kendra Scott.  I bought these using my birthday coupon! Don't forget to sign up on her website as she is pretty generous with discounts and coupons. 

Have a Happy St. Patty's Day and a great weekend!  In closing, I will leave you with one more quote.  Although, I don't think Bob Marley is Irish... but I could be wrong!  

When one door is closed, don't you know, another is open. Bob Marley

As always, thank you for reading!  XO



Valentine Style

FashionJan CorrellComment

Love must be as much a light, as it is a flame.

- Henry David Thoreau


Hi Friends, 

First and foremost, Happy Valentines Day!  I hope today brings you much happiness, joy, and love!  

As I celebrate today with Mr. Silver and our love of over 40 years... I remind myself that nothing worth having comes easy.  As high school sweethearts, we grew up together.  Through highs and lows, great times and sad times we never let our love grow apart!  Love is a lifetime of compromise, commitment, and trust!  

This post features three different Valentines outfits that are my style!  The first is a simple Kensie white blouse, Baublebar earrings, Red Theory pants (FTC) a Michael Kors Leather Jacket (FTC) and Circa Joan and David T-strap shoes (also FTC).    


Next is a red Karen Kane dress that is so simple and lovely, it will be a wardrobe staple for years to come, and it even has pockets! The Pour La Victoire black pumps were a find at Belk and make me feel so tall!!  My bracelet is vintage Kendra Scott and the clutch is Sondra Roberts from Nordstrom, now on sale.

Last but not least, is a Karen Kane cropped top in red lace with bell sleeves, black wide leg pants from Chico's, Kendra Scott earrings and black pumps (FTC)

As always, thank you so much for reading and being a part of my journey!!


Sunday Poncho

Fashion, JewelryJan CorrellComment

Hi Friends,

Poncho's are FUN!  They are so versatile and can be worn so many ways; date night, business, name it!  This one was such a find and is by SundaysNYC. It is made of the softest material!  LOVE. I bought it at a local boutique Luxe Angel Boutique but they quickly sold out! I can sure see why...I would have bought one in every color!!  Underneath, I wore my white Tees  by Tina.  If you have not tried this brand...DO!  It will become a fave and they wash and wear so well!  

The boots are a staple.  When I was doing cross country travel...these were what I wore almost every a bit worn in but there is nothing like a good cowgirl boot to mold to your foot!  My bag is a Phillip Lim...I found this at Nordstrom Rack but I found the original on his website.  You will weep, if I told you the price I I will keep this a secret, unless you really want to me.  Last but not least,  Kendra Scott earnings in grey with gold accents.  Kendra Scott can dress up any outfit and pull it together.

As always, thanks for reading~

Until next time,



Celebrating Fall - Pantone 18-1340

Fashion, JewelryJan CorrellComment

Potter's Clay is the color I chose to welcome in fall this week.  So looking forward to the leaves changing and cooler weather!!  

I saw this geometric top in a Chico's magazine in August and was not sure it would work for me until I tried it on in the store.  This top will be amazing with so many outfits, including jeans.  I also plan to use it for business meetings. The short sleeves make it wearable during the warmer fall days.  My black pants are also from Chico's and a wardrobe staple.  Neutral earth tones, including Potter's Clay, pair well with black : strong foundation colors.

The Tom's open-toe shoes were bought earlier in the summer and are still available at Nordstrom.  Planning to wear them with many more outfits this fall.  

For jewelry, I am wearing vintage turquoise beads and bracelets, Kendra Scott Earrings (vintage) and Necklace and gold bangles.

As always thanks for reading~

Until next time,  Jan

Dress Up or Down

Fashion, Jewelry, Dresses, Purses/HandbagsJan CorrellComment

When recently in Texas to help my daughter and SIL after the arrival of my 3rd grandson, I was able to fit in a quick photo-op, which leads me to my next post.

A dress is one of the easiest wardrobe pieces to wear.  I love a simple, easy style that you can "literally" jump into and run out the door.  The nice thing about wearing a dress is that you always look a little "dressed up' for any situation; shopping, running errands or lunch with a friend.

This dress was a Belk find by Max Studio - Sophie Max but I also saw it last week at Nordstrom Rack.  It sold out quickly.  The lines work well with most figures and the fabric is light and breathable for early fall wherever you live.  

If you look at the gallery, you can tell that my accessories dressed this down, or whichever way you want to look at it!
