Lastly, a huge thanks to why am I here in a handbasket for One Lovely Blog Award. I love reading her posts b/c she tells it like it is, and it IS hilarious!
Thank you for thinking of me…I’m very honored.

Oh my gosh that striped maxi has to be the most perfect maxi I’ve ever seen. The scarf is perfect with it!
Oh wow! Thanks Lisa!
Gorgeous dress – I like how you are wearing the maxi to the MAX long length!
Glad you stopped by!
Great dress to add a splash of color.
Beautiful 🙂 love the dress..
Love the neutral color palette of this outfit.
Congrats for all of the lovely awards – you deserve each and every… and more!
And I loved your outfit – especially the bag, so elegant! You are rocking it, fair lady! xxx
Hello dear Edita!
You are a sweetheart! Thank you!
You really make it look so effortless, and you ALWAYS dress so elegant, even when casual. Love the striped maxi on you. I love how you mix the patterns but still look like a minimalist. Impressive. Please keep blogging- I know it seems narcissistic but consider how we need more real life inspiration on +40 style, and you def are just the panacea for any fuddy-duddy duds. xo. Bella Q
So very sweet of you! I appreciate your encouragement. Thank you so much! 🙂
Great scarf, great dress = great you!
this dress is amazing! i’m so loving all your maxis. you look great in stripes!
You’re looking lovely to accept ALL your awards!
Why, thank you Terri!
I love that dress! Well, the bag, the scarf and the shoes too. Okay, everything! LOL! You look good. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.
Haha, Thanks Adin! 🙂
Hi Jeannie! I love your outfit today, especially the scarf! Usually McQueen is a bit much for my taste, but on you and the way you put it together, I love it! ~Patricia
Thank you Patricia!
I know what you mean about the scarf. Most of McQueen scarves are a bit too edgy for me but it was a love at first sight for this one. I really love the size and the pattern.
You always look so chic! Love the neutral tones!
Thanks Marie! Yes, the colors are nice on this dress. Although I love bright & happy colors, I’m drawn to neutrals most of the time. Have a fabulous week!
The lean, elegant cut of that dress is wonderful. Love the grays, black, and white, too.
Thanks Anne! The softness of the fabric is wonderful, too.
Love the mixing of patterns! Another graceful outfit
Thank you! 🙂
You always look so amazing Jeannie .. absolutely amazing. I love the ‘big’ stripes, the scraf and the sandals … love it all 🙂
Have a stunning week
Wendy, you are so sweet! Thank you so much!
Wishing you a great week as well!
Love it! Comfy and classy. Congrats award winner!
Thank you Judy!
Did you have a good weekend getaway? Hope so!
Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous–and the scarf was the PERFECT finishing piece!
Thank you, thank you, thank you! You’re a sweetheart!
Hey Jeannie, I really like maxis with blocks of color like yours, but haven’t tried that style yet. Do you plan on winterizing your maxis? If so how do you plan on doing it? Sad I’ll have to put mine away in a month or two.
Since I live in the South, I’ll be definitely donning maxis this fall. Throw on a cardigan/jacket and a scarf and VOILA! 🙂 Booties go great with maxis, too!
Hi Jeannie. I love this dress. I love the pattern and I love the colors, it’s beautiful. The scarf is beautiful and also combines beautifully. A great outfit. The hair picked up on you is great.
Josep, thank you!
I’m very fond of the color combo as well. A neutral at its best! 🙂
So pretty Jeannie! Love the big bold stripes paired with the details in the scarf. Very nice!!!
It’s a very comfortable fabric as well. It’s one of my fav maxi & scarf.
Gorgeous! Again! Every detail perfect.
Thank you SO VERY much! 😀
Love the dress. I’m a big fan of black and white too!
You should see my closet! B&W rules! 🙂
Each piece is amazing – they combine to make the perfect outfit!
Elisa, you make it sound like an art….thank you so much!
Honestly, I’m having some thoughts about continuing to blog. It seems silly sometimes to take photos of outfits for all to see. What’s the point? It’s been one of those days today. 😦
It sounds like an art because you are an artist! I enjoy your blog so much because it’s different and fun. You keep it varied because you incorporate interesting tidbits and themes into your posts. I never had a plan when I decided to blog, which is why I struggled there for a while. Now it’s almost like an online journal….it will be fun to reflect on it when I’m older, and cherish the friends I’ve made along the way. Hang in there, friend, and keep on posting!!
I love this outfit, Jeannie! As always, you wear everything so well. I hope you had a great weekend!
My weekend was very busy. Son’s starting a new job soon and we had to find him an apartment, furniture and everything in between. I’m excited for him, but this mama’s tired. We’ll be moving him this weekend…no rest for moi.
Hope you have a great week!
Good luck to your son in his new job! Prayers for you that you get through all the transition!
What a fabulous look!
I’m so loving it and it works perfectly with my current love of all things grey.
Laura, I been loving your posts on grey…beginning to really love that color!
I always liked it but in working on these posts I too have fallen in love with it! I want more in my wardrobe and more in my home. Just need to figure out how?! 🙂
I totally agree with Pam… I love the entire look but it’s the scarf that first caught my eye.
Thanks Elaine! I DO love this scarf as well. 🙂
Most fabulous maxi I’ve seen on a blog all summer. Very nicely done with the mix of the patterned scarf.
Oh wow, thank you Diane!
I love, love the subtle pattern-mixing between the dress and scarf – it shows your wonderful sense of style and confidence. Thanks for sharing with Visible Monday!
Patti, thank you so much. What a sweet comment!
Jeannie, You wear this well! Love the big stripes on you and the Charles David wedges are so cute. Congrats on the awards!
Thanks Leslie! The wedges are high but Oh So comfy!
Love the whole look…but of course my eye went right to the scarf…its a good one!! You look lovely as always! have a wonderful Monday!!
Thank you Pam! It’s one of my favorite as well. 🙂
Jeannie, I love that maxi! You look amazing as usual and that LV bag… delish!! Congrats on your awards!!! 🙂
Thanks Rachel! Love your LV as well!
