Destination Chico's: Au Courant

Au Courant 
a :  fully informed : up-to-date
  b : fashionable, stylish (au courant outfits)

With our Destination Chico's journey etching its way to a close (only one more stop to go), I thought this post would be a great time to keep you au courant on all things Chico's. First, let me begin by saying - This journey has been quite a delightful sartorial ride. If you have been on this trip from the beginning, you know - Destination Chico's is a six month style journey designed to introduce you to my favorite Chico's looks, and to inspire you to indulge further into exploration of the boutique. If this trip was a new experience for you, I truly hope I inspired you to add Chico's to your list of shopping destinations. 

Past Destination Chico's Stops:
  
Today's look cultivates the effortless, elegance of the French, while still holding true to the Chico's aesthetic - a careful mix of au courant trends, the unexpected (you'll love the texture of the clutch), and splashes of bling. I hope you enjoy this stop, and remember, if you're interested in this look, please visit the provided links in OUTFIT DETAILS.

Outfit Details → Hayden Sharkbite-Hem Pullover in Purple TwilightPetite Elyse So Slimming Pants; Georgette Clutch; Wynter Stretch Bracelet; Silver-tone Hammered Clip-on Earrings (sold out. Check out the Rory Drop Hoop); Polish is Define Good...by China Glaze; Crystal Ring is my own.






   
  

A close-up of the bracelet. It's absolutely stunning. It reminds me of ice.

How to be in Harmony with your Wardrobe



I’m a huge proponent of being in harmony with my wardrobe. Persons who have the capability and understanding of doing so demonstrate such a balance between self and wardrobe; with both subjects melding together to form a perfect kinship that tells a beautiful story. There’s a reason why some people wear their clothing with such eloquence. When you spot this type of person, your natural instinct is to watch and examine how they occupy their space with such grace and ease – human conjoined with attire, and reflecting a harmonious self-confidence...(this story continues on Midlife Blvd)



Join me on the corner of True Style Ave and Midlife Blvd 
for the five key elements that will get you to a place of being simpatico with your wardrobe.

Creatively Interesting - Giveaway

Nothing excites me more than keeping company with someone who devotes their time creating from the heart. You can feel their infectious energy as their magic comes alive and leaps onto the person who partakes in their craft. You witness this powerful force when the music lover is transported to another world by rhythms and sounds; the art lover who's transfixed upon their latest visual acquisition; when the words of a writer come to life and touches the reader to the core; or the designer who creates jewelry, accessories or garments that resonate with the spirit. Whichever genre of artistry you prefer, when creator and appreciator connect, the results are the likeness of two people locking eyes for the very first time - there's no need to speak...there's an obvious connection.  

The relationship between creator and appreciator is quite an emotional bond. An artist can tap into our soul in ways which often surprise us. They have the ability to unearth emotions we once thought were buried. When you spend time with the creatively interesting, you rush to tell them how their art touched an inner sanctum deep within you. You feel connected to and inspired by their work. Such are the emotions I felt when I received the inspiration for today's post - a necklace by Jewelry Artist, Diana Ferguson - a piece that combines creativity and interesting into one. I hope you are touched by this post, and you enjoy the images. Just for you, there is a giveaway and a discount at the end!  

Disclaimer: This post is in partnership with Diana Ferguson Jewelry. I received compensation in exchange for sharing with my blog public. Although this post is a partnership, all opinions are my own.

Diana Ferguson says her jewelry is more than art, they're wardrobe wonders, fun, modern, eclectic, feminine, versatile, and beautiful, yet practical. The necklace I'm wearing is from her Petals to the Metal collection and is where craftsmanship and innovation intersect. The designs are lightweight, carefully crafted paper-based petals to metal, and lends to the woman who has a curiosity, sense of adventure, and a taste for what's creatively interesting.

Outfit Details: Deep in the Green - Petals to the Metal Pendent Necklace: Courtesy of Diana Ferguson Jewelry; Bubble Skirt by Anthropologie via eBay; Deep Scoop Neck Tee by Cynthia Rowley via TJ Maxx; Polish is Senorita Rose-Alita by OPI. Ring on Thumb: Courtesy of Chico's; Watch is Citizen's Crystal Silhouette; Vince Camuto Leather Belt via Amazon.


 







I hope you enjoyed today's style story.

What's Inside Glenda's Backpack

Hi Friends!

Here's a little diversion from all the noise going on in our lives. Trust me when I say, creating this video gave me the chuckle I so desperately needed. Lately I've been feeling like I'm going to lose it. If you're viewing my blog in desktop mode, you'll see that my latest update in The Fashion Forefront News  (in my left sidebar) is the fashion community's reaction to the recent event.

This video was originally created for the So What to Twenty Facebook group. Since the reaction was so positive, I thought I'd post it on the blog too. At the end you'll hear me mention self-care, that's because we've been discussing it all week.  Anyhoo, sit back and watch as I lighten the mood while simultaneously lightening my bag. Discover EXACTLY What's Inside Glenda's Backpack.


If you missed the last post called Alley Cat, I hope you'll stop by and check it out. Stay connected for a special style story on Sunday, and in the meantime, I hope you have an enjoyable weekend!
