Leopard Print Coat and Jeans

I duplicated this Pinterest picture in 2013 with items that are not as expensive. The Pinterest Leopard print coat is Vintage but I found one on the @normtompson website that has the same look for $189.00 and comes in Plus sizes. The chambray shirt and boot cut jeans are from Oldnavy and Gap. The bag in the picture is by the designer "Celine" but I think the Ralph Lauren bag is just as pretty. The red shoes worn by the model are Miu Miu but I like the red, suede booties by G by GUESS and cost $79.00 at Macy's. I don't know what brand of sunglasses the model is wearing but you can't miss with Ray-Ban's in basic black. Minus the handbag and sunglasses, my outfit costs $401.00.

Chambray Shirts and Necklaces

An easy Summer look is a soft, chambray shirt and pearls. This look takes it one step further with the addition of a large monogram.

Black Jeans

My favorite, every day jeans are NYDJ (Not your daughter's jeans.) They have control fabric designed into the front pockets to help you look slimmer. I have two pair of black ones. I had the straight leg hemmed to wear with flats and sandals. I had the boot cut hemmed to wear with heels and boots. To maintain their color I wash them inside out on the delicate cycle in Woolite for dark colors. I tumble them in the dryer for just a minute or two and hang them up to dry on wooden trouser hangers. This puts a bit of a slimming crease down the legs. They sell many styles and washes so It's easy to find something that fits.
