Fashion & Me – Photo a Day June

Here’s some fashion goings on from the month of June.

6. Hat  I have an amazing hat collection. I collect hats. I have over 50. Several are vintage from the early 1900’s. One is vintage from Paris. (Brought that one home from honeymoon) I use to wear them all the time, but, with two small people in my life they have made it a little harder for me to feel comfortable in wearing them right now. Maybe after my youngest gets older, in school, I’ll start again.

Hat(s)

15. Yellow  I wore these fabulous yellow snake skin heels with a fantastic Karen Kane LBD. I would show you the whole outfit but I am still feeling challenged with my self photos of what I am wearing. I just need to have my hubby take them.  I do have to laugh as when I originally posted this pick several people thought it was a real snake. Silly friends.

Yellow – Accessories (Shoes)

18. Something we don’t know about you.   I played the violin from the 4th grade on through high school. I even made it to the Mesa Youth Orchestra. I have’t picked it up in years. I still have it and am inspired when I hear violins being played.

Something you don’t know about me – I played the violin.

19. Imperfect me…

Imperfect – Me

24. On your mind  Having had a migraine, so on my mind is making it go away. I have a feeling my previous photo is one of me having a migraine too. I wish they would just go away! I pulled out my BeautiControl goodies: spa neck wrap, Luxeries of the Sea cooling gel, Spa Detox Mist, Spa Nourishing Eye pads. Aaaahhhh….

On my mind – spa remedy for my head.

26. Where you shop  I shop lots of different places when I have time. “Tar jay” seems to be our go to these days. I think we need to invest in stock in them. 🙂

Where you shop – Target

Do you wear hats? Where do you shop?

Fashion – May Photo a Day (3, 4, 6, 24, 30)

Fashion is a daily thing for me. Here are a few from the month from the “photo a day challenge” on instagram. If you’d like to “follow me” I’m thejackiestyle.

3. Something you wore today  I have a challenge getting my own photo of the outfits I wear. I have been trying different angles and what not. I don’t really have a great mirror to get the look I want and the from above angle doesn’t flatter me. Urg! So this is what I came up with this time. If you have any suggestions on how to get a better “outfit of the day” photo I’d love it. 🙂

4. fun!  I was meting with an awesome friend I have known forever and we love fashion & make-up so we always end up talking about it when we are together.

Fun! – Coffee with a friend.

6. you  We were visiting the in-laws and I found a quiet spot to take this shot. Totally casual and wearing jean shorts and a new grey shiny shirt from the May Switch & Ditch.

You – Who me?

24. Something new  I found these beauties while doing a video blog at AZ Salvation Army (to be posted soon). They were $6.00! Kenneth Coles. I wear them almost everyday.

Something new – shoes!

30. Your Personality  This was a tough topic. I am easy to read but I couldn’t figure out how to make it come through in a photo. My C Boy had a Tea for all the moms who volunteered in the class. He told me, “Mom, you have to wear a hat, it is a tea.” So I grabbed one of my hats. I was the only mom in a hat. He was very excited. When I posted the photo on FB my friends said they saw joy. What do you think?

Your Personality – Joyful

 

 

Fashion – Photo a Day 12. Inside Your Closet

 There is something unique in this closet and that is… hats. I love hats. I use to wear hats all the time. Since having children it has not been a fashion accessory I have chosen. Not sure it it has to do with the fact they (the boys) pull them off my head, doesn’t go with the mommy looked I had been rocking or if it is the blind spot that they created (not good to keep eyes on kiddos).  Whatever the reason I have my collection hanging in the closet waiting for me.  I think it is time to pull a few out and see what happens.

Just a few hats.

As you can see from this view of my closet I am not lacking in clothes. I do still sometimes like many of my clients stand looking at it and say “I have nothing to wear”. Not often, but sometimes.

Nothing to wear?

It is mostly color coordinated and sorted by sleeve length. I dream of someday having the walk in with the sitting area and a cute chandelier on the ceiling. sigh… someday.
