Have I said this before? I truly love all the long tunics/shirts out and about this year. They can be worn buttoned up over pants, jeans, long pencil skirts or leggings or worn open like a duster over all of the above. They’d even look good with wide, flowy pants for day or evening. I’m not sure how long they’re going to be in style, but I’ll wear mine to death as long as they are!
Here I’m wearing mine with a wide belt to give my waist some definition and I felt quite confident in this look! Perfect for transitioning between seasons – wear another top or shirt underneath or don’t, depending on the weather.
Today I am wearing the last of my cold weather clothes – from now on spring/summer apparel only! But I wanted to share this outfit because I love every item I am wearing, especially this Asos blue leather jacket. This ensemble is the perfect combination of casual but work-acceptable pieces; I find it’s hard to strike that perfect balance but, when I do, I am truly a happy fashionista.
One more thing: I have a few of these turtleneck sleeveless tunics and I find I can extend their wear into spring by combining them with a simple tee or simply wearing them as is… just a thought!

When I wore this outfit, I LONGED to be on the east coast where a cashmere sweater coat would be useful. But, alas, I was out to dinner in San Francisco and I probably needed one less layer of clothing. I’m stubborn that way – I get an ensemble in my mind and then I am determined to wear it.
You already know how very much I love olive and this was an olive trifecta – coat, tunic top and scarf. I love a bundled up look like this because I could almost look like I belonged amid the throngs at NYFW – overdressed and deliriously happy! BTW, orange and camo = fabulous!

Sometimes the clean line of a one-color ensemble as you see here is just the ticket. However I couldn’t just leave it there; I was compelled to add this lace-y belt from ASOS.
I haven’t told you about my belt collection – organized by width and color. One can only acquire a belt collection over many years I think. And if I were collecting today – well, I wouldn’t be collecting today because interesting leather belts have gotten way too expensive. The belt I’m wearing today is faux of course, but Ithink it makes the outfit sing.
It was hard work finding the right 3/4 length vest. It couldn’t be too bulky or hot or I’d never wear it, but camel can be a tricky color. It looks great with black or white, but it’s not a color I like with bright colors especially. So, after owning it for three months, I now can see potential outfits that will work. You’ll see it more over the next few months!
Welcome to another of Jeanne’s current obsessions: sleeveless turtleneck tunics! Actually any cozy turtlenecks will do, but this particular style is perfect and very versatile. Wear it as a sleeveless tunic in between seasons or wear it with a crisp shirt or another turtleneck in cooler weather. I even love these tunics with simple tees underneath. They work with leggings, jeans and even sleek dressy pants. There should be plenty of these on sale after the Christmas rush so keep your eyes open. I think you’ll learn to love them too!

I am a firm believer in having animal print available for every season of the year. This skirt, in fact, is really better suited for warmer weather but I couldn’t resist putting this combo together. I am also very pleased with my recently acquired faux leather jacket from Asos – a very inexpensive sartorial thrill. And one can never have enough versatile black turtlenecks!
Every retailer seems to call this color something different: burgundy! wine! oxblood! I’m just glad that, in the final analysis, they all seems to be the same. I love this little top from Banana Republic because it is not too boxy and even flares a little bit at the hem. And couldn’t I just wear these joggers every day? The combo of burgundy and plaid makes me instantly happy. Check out the darling burgundy-wine-oxblood we’ve pulled together below!
It has taken me a long time to pull together a handful of green clothes and accessories that I love. The latest round of green was inspired by these earrings that I found on a flash sale somewhere. I adore throwing all my greens together – from grass green to olive to forest green. And it’s another color that “plays well” with many other colors – navy, black, brown, yellow, and even red at a certain time of year!
What’s not to love about a red and navy combo? I am especially enamored of this jacket purchased from Asos in the summer of 2014. It is sublime! I am becoming accustomed to the idea of a longer loose top with a tailored moto jacket. I have to say that I am gravitating towards more navy as opposed to black. It is a refreshing option and every bit as universal as black!
