Jeanne says: How embarrassing — almost every item by J.Crew! I like to think of myself as a little more creative than this. I loved the color in this outfit even if it made me look like an Easter egg. I will say that these ankle pants from J.Crew are a favorite of mine (you already know this if you read the blog regularly!). I will be in serious trouble when this pant style is passe.

I like Kate’s outfit — the mix of colors and fabrics (although again I wish she had topped this with the turquoise necklace I know she has) is divine. She has several pairs of pants in this Loft design and they suit her figure very well. She looks confident and comfortable which I think are the hallmarks of well-dressed women. You go, Kate!

Kate says: This has turned into one of my outfit uniforms — bright top, a cardigan in another color, and print pants. It’s easy to fit items together in this formula and know your outfit will look stylish! I love this dark fuchsia cardigan with the bright turquoise of the top, and these are definitely go-to pants for me. It’s important to find a brand of pants that fit you well, and then stick to it. Mom has J.Crew; I have Loft. What’s yours?

Mom’s color combo is a little Easter-like, but I think it works! The bright colors really make her skin glow. And I think the belt and “new neutral” silver shoes help ground the outfit a bit. This is a great example of a simple outfit that makes a real statement — and another outfit formula! Two bright solids always look chic together.

    Visiting from Simply Just Lovely Link-up! Both of these looks are great! And no worries, sometimes my looks are head to toe one designer/store 🙂
