Some days I wonder where the color in my wardrobe has gone. I can’t help that I love classic black mixed with everything, as well as navy and shades of olive.  But it is uplifting to dress in red and white as you see here.  There is nothing, in my opinion, better than a true, clear red and these pants qualify.  They will be keepers in my summer retirement wardrobe!

What Jeanne Wore: Plaid Tunic and Black Skirt

Today I am taking a leap and showing an outfit that did NOT work.  So, for Heaven’s sake, don’t try to copy this look!  The idea was to wear my long tunic over a black top and column skirt.  Sounds simple, doesn’t it?  What went wrong?

  • The tunic fabric clung to the skirt fabric so the outfit had no “flow”.
  • Nothing delineated my waist and the result is very unflattering.
  • The necklace I chose is too bulky for these light fabrics.  The collar of the tunic slipped around, so I buttoned the top button.  Also a mistake.

Many lessons in this outfit for me… the biggest one:  if I have doubts when I first put the outfit on, TAKE IT OFF and try again!

I’ll admit it – I have a love/hate relationship with tunics.  You have seen me wear them before, but I am never entirely sure I like them.  They look great with skinny pants, but with skirts? I was completely seduced by the tomato red color of the top you see here, BUT I’m still not sure whether it looks like a sack or not.  Maybe a longer, tighter skirt?  Hmmm.  Well, this fashion blogging game is full of uncertainties.  And don’t get me started on the fringe on these sandals – the jury is still out!

It’s a good thing I’m re-retiring since I love being creative about Casual Friday more than any other day of the week!  And I am also loving my cropped flared jeans, so here you see them with my sleeveless trench (another favorite) and lots of red touches!  We’re still talking about many of my standby brands as you can see above, but in new combinations that I think look chic and fresh!

I love to wear pink and red together, folks.  Maybe it’s the shock value or maybe it is just that these are two of my favorite colors.  And adding one of my vintage brooches was a no-brainer. My red shoes so perfectly match my pants (and you know how much I like matchy matchy).

By the way, everyone should have a perfect pair of red heels just as everyone should have animal print heels.  They brighten up any outfit.  I love many of the Sole Society shoes because they are on trend but of a reasonable height. Beautiful shoes at a good price that one can walk in – what a concept!

What has happened to the color brown?  As I was researching similar items to those in my outfit, I was amazed that so little wonderful brown clothing seems to exist. It’s a great color and goes with practically any other color, but it seems to be … unpopular.  Well, I love it and, yes, I love it with bright red.

I am wearing an outfit that could only be pulled together by someone who collects clothes, I think.  Every item here was purchased in a different year and not with its companion items in mind.  This represents a “eureka” fashion moment for me – when I see how all my clothes fit together for another shining moment – crazy, I know but ahhhhhh.

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I love these very bright red jogger pants and I’ll wear them no matter how warm or cold it may be!  I would wear them every time with this wonderful Loft blouse with its unevenly spaced polka dots.  But … that would be boring.

One way to cut through the boredom is to throw on a duster coat.  This one is a dark tweedy one with many different red colors woven in.  I told you the other day about my obsession with long sweaters?  Well, welcome to my other obsession – long unlined duster coats.  They make any outfit an OUTFIT in my opinion and they go so well with short or long skirts, wide or skinny pants. Try one out if you haven’t already.

I found this er …. elongated shirt in the Zara store at Tysons Corner (similar on line) and it took me about 30 seconds to buy it.  My favorite plaid in a long, flowy top – what’s not to love? Putting together the rest of this outfit was pretty easy.  I can also see this shirt with jeans or leggings.

The fact that I already have wonderful black cuffed trousers and a great blazer is only the result of good online sale shopping.  Seriously this long shirt look is good for almost any figure especially if it is grounded with a blazer with a little shape.

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!

The funny thing about Northern California weather is that we freeze all summer and then it gets hot in September and October.  So while everyone else is admiring fall clothes, we have left behind even cotton jackets until Thanksgiving.

This blue and white striped dress is almost too warm right now, but it is a perfect transitional dress.  And it could even go all winter with a chic sweater coat or a jacket.  It checks all my boxes – long enough (check), covers my upper arms (check),has a forgiving pattern (check), AND it is a little sassy (check).   Don’t forget Zara when you’re looking for wearable, multi-seasonal dresses!
