Coffee with Candi 4/5/2019
When I think of Spring in the Midwest, it is a time for fresh starts…a rebirth of sorts…at least where nature is concerned. The leaves and flowers bud and bloom, birds return to nest and propagate, days grow longer and temperatures warmer.
Still, the mornings and evenings can be chilly (sometimes the days, too, but we won’t dwell on that!) so we bring out the light Spring jacket or blazer.
My mind is in ‘fashion’ mode as I sip on my coffee this morning. Maybe it’s because Easter will be here in a few weeks along with the weather slowly evolving into Spring. Whatever the reason, let’s think about a refresh of our wardrobe to suit the season.
As women over 50 we know that there are advantages to these casual wardrobe layers. They can not only keep the chill off, they also can camouflage some areas that are affected by our journey through midlife, the crepey arms and roundness around the middle specifically!
So in celebration of Spring, or any time of year and weather that encourages a light jacket, let’s take a look at some of the season’s best, and find some casual styles to love. I’m always up for a budget friendly shopping trip so we’ll keep the prices easy on the wallet, too.
I decided to ‘shop’ at Chicos for these casual spring jackets and blazers and had great fun selecting this group. They offer a classic yet stylish look for women over 50, or for any woman who enjoys a classic look. Prices in this curated group range from $100 to $150.
When you click over to the Chico’s site to check out the details on these spring essentials, be sure to note how the pieces can be styled. If you click on the “how to wear it” button you’ll zip to the bottom of the page to see three complete looks.

Using separates to create an outfit not only gives you more options and looks, it provides a way for you be confident and comfortable in any setting. I like having the flexibility to wear that extra layer or remove it based on activities and temperatures.
I’m a sleeveless girl at heart, but when that just won’t do, a favorite jacket or sweater keeps me looking my best. Well, time to set the coffee cup aside and get to work…or maybe do some online shopping…we’ll see.
