Hello friends!

Brown says stability, reliability, and approachability.  It is the color of our earth and is associated with all things natural or organic.

When these photos were taken last Sunday, the outside temperature was quite chilly, and I was whining like a diva!  A diva?  Moi?  It’s this blogging gig, I tell ya!

Contrary to my childish behavior, I’m sporting a conservative & age appropriate outfit in shades of brown and black.  Do I look approachable? 😉

Yeah, it was cold…I’m such a wimp!

😆 😆 😆 😆

Now, how do you explain this to kids?

Hope you’re having a good week! 


Skirt: Jones New York Collection      Cardigan: BCBGMaxAzria

Trench Coat: Dana Buchman        Bag: Prada       Shoes: Michael Kors

  1. Love love love this..its so modern classic. Brown is probably my favorite color to wear.
    I really enjoy the irony of the last photo on your always give me something to laugh about!

  2. Absolutely you look approachable and chic, and stylish and___________ (just fill in with any fabulous word).
    Please give us a tour of your closet one day. It must be like a boutique I’ve never seen you with the same purse (or shoes) twice!

  3. Absolutely approachable. Gorgeous in many ways, fine tuned, on trend. But the very first thing that I thought when I looked at this ensemble was “tasteful” … and I mean that in it’s very best sense. Another is “pitch perfect.” I have always had a problem with perceiving leopard print as sort of tacky. Really, I’ve never seen it done with better taste. I also love how the shoes look like a pop of color against the other neutrals, making a little showcase of fall color. (Sigh…) you are wearing one of those classic outfits that I’d love to be able to put together and wear with such aplomb. I’m envious … but I’m reminded of something important that I’ve forgotten lately. I’ve been pushing myself to wear more bright color, but I’m reminded that neutrals can look effortless and work together in amazing ways.

    • Oh my goodness! What a wonderfully thoughtful comment this is! I truly appreciate this so very much!
      I am a “neutral” person, but I have been trying to wear more colors, too. I call it “happy” outfits. But, I’ll always revert to what I love when it’s all said and done. My closet will attest to that.
      Thanks again for your so so sweet comment! ❤

  4. I love your look, the brown and black look is so chic. My fav is the pleated skirt. I love that picture , if she is 100 she should be able to do what she wants. She earned the right!


  5. Sheesh! There’s no more room for my cursor to move down the page. 😉
    I love brown so much but I find that I can’t find the clothing I want in that shade. I’d wear brown all year round if I could but it only seems to come out in the fall and winter, and even then there’s not enough of it. You’d laugh if you knew how many times I enter “brown” this or that in a search bar hoping to find what I’m looking for. You look soft, classy and beautiful here!

  6. I am a long-time brown addict, probably due to the way it gives one an air of being grounded and credible or serious. I adore this combination of brown with pleats! Also, those amazing shoes really up the awesome on your look.
    You are keeping me inspired to dress inspired.

    • You are so sweet!
      Because of your love for nature/flowers/plants, it doesn’t surprise me at the least that brown would be one of your fav colors. I inspire you? Best compliment, ever! Thank you so much! ❤

  7. That outfit is perfection! It might be “age appropriate” (I can’t tell you how much I dislike those words) but its also very, very elegant. I love the shoes and the bag. Wish it would get cold here so I could wear some layers already!

  8. BROWN is my fav color too 😀
    Adore your pleated skirt – I have a brown pleated maxi skirt which I have never worn yet, haha!
    I definitely would wear it exactly the way you do – its stylishly classic, never wrong! XOXO!

  9. You don’t just look approachable you look fantastic!
    Love the leopard skin with the pleated skirt, a mix of fierce and ladylike. 🙂
    Um…as for explaining the photo…she took it up for her 100th birthday – if you live that long you can start smoking too?? Or maybe…she just borrowed it to have something to light the candles with???

  10. Jeannie is a lovely outfit, with fall colors very balanced. Do not think that’s a conservative proposal, is elegant, beautiful and lovely. Always looks good combination of black and brown, and the pleated skirt is great. The jacket gives the outfit more casual touch, perfect. A lovely outfit, you look lovely with him.

  11. Yes you DO look approachable! Love the jacket and the pleated skirt is gorgeous. That photo is sad and funny.. and I don’t know how to explain it except that some folks just seem to survive despite all odds!
