The Statement Vest

Fashion, ShoesJan Correll2 Comments

I recently found this long black vest on my way out the door, while shopping recently.   I spotted another woman looking at it and waited patiently, till she put it back.  The word "statement piece" rang in my head, and I had nothing like it in my closet.   Needless to say I was smitten.  Best part... it was on the sale rack.  Score!  I have searched high and low to link this exact one for you as it was the last one and cannot find it.  However, don't fret, I have linked others that would offer the same "statement look."  

What exactly is a "statement piece"?  My definition is a little different than what I found on the web here and here.  I feel that a statement piece is an item that makes you stand out.  It can be shoes, earrings, a hat etc. just a bit unique and bold.  My "statement vest" is a simple black vest.  What makes it unique are the large colorful grommets.  So fun.  I should also mention my Bauble Bar gold bracelet from the Nordstrom Sale and my fun black, leather Apple Watch cuff from Bezels and Bytes.  So mod!!  Did I really just say "mod"?  Haha.  

I did not realize the dirt on the doorway behind me till I looked at the pics.  My OCD self would have a great time on that with a lil 409!!

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
