Happy Monday and here’s hoping all the Moms are feeling well-loved and a bit more pampered after yesterday. I know I do! My family made it nice by feeding me comfort food (cinnamon rolls and bacon, yum), encouraging me to take time for myself and then setting up a nice hot bath at the end of the day. I forgot how great a bath can be.

There are two pictures for Day 26 because I wasn’t sure which bag was better with the skirt outfit. Thoughts? Maybe neither, I don’t know. I was kind of stumped. Help needed!

Have a lovely day.

Nothing New – Day 11

40+ style, white blazer

Wearing: Zara blazer and sheer top w/ crystals / Lucky Brand jeans / Rebecca Minkoff MAC convertible crossbody (similar) / Me Too pumps / Loft bracelet / House of Harlow necklace / Anthropologie earrings.

White blazers are an easy way to dress up an outfit. You could have a t-shirt on under a white blazer and still look ready for a night out. I always scrunch the sleeves up to keep it from looking too serious. This one has polka-dots on the up-turned fabric, which is kinda playful. These blazers also work well over summer dresses and keep you from freezing in office air conditioning. The white blazer trend is winding down in favor of pastels this spring, but to me it’s a classic look. I’ll have this one in my closet for years to come.

Are you more likely to wear a white, black or colored blazer?

Nothing New – Day 3

NothingNew-3a NothingNew-3b

This is one of those outfits that I’m really comfortable in. The jacket has seen more airports than any other item of clothing I have. It’s my go-to travel layer because it elevates my casual pieces, keeps me warm and looks neat and tidy even after a long day. I’m also a huge fan of cross-body bags because I like to have both hands free when I’m running around. The adjustable straps clip-off on this one and becomes a clutch. Brilliant! It also travels with me often. I love pieces that do double-duty.

Wearing: Trina Turk military jacket / Anthropologie Sandstone top / Levi’s Curve ID jeans / Aquatalia by Marvin K ankle boots / Stella & Dot necklace / World Market earrings / Halogen crossbody bag (on sale, more colors)

Enjoy the day!

New York Fashion Week starts today and I can’t wait to see what’s rolling out on the runway for Spring 2011. If you’re interested, you can see the Fashion Week calendar for who’s showing when and also see the collections at Style.com.

Back here in the land of fall fashion choices, you can’t go wrong with a crossbody bag these days. You can pick a small one or a big one depending on your need and you’ll be hands-free, which in and of itself is a liberating notion. Think of it, one hand can be on your phone (of course) and the other can be doing God knows what…making mischief, holding someone’s hand, looking for keys, riding a bike, squeezing fruit or holding your latte (of course). I mean the possibilities are endless, which is why I think you’ll like having one. Some of the styles shown harken to a 70s vibe, while others go sleek or even rocker. There’s something here for everyone and I’d pair these looks with military, aviator, layered knits or something laid-back.

Have a great one!
