hey everyone good to see you again it's
00:11
sharla with the right side of 50
00:13
speaking to you a woman of a certain age
00:15
who wants to dress from the inside out
00:17
and today my friends we're talking
00:20
blazers
00:21
okay so you know i'm a jean jacket girl
00:23
typically in my closet when i put
00:25
together an outfit i grab that jean
00:27
jacket to top everything off we're going
00:30
to take it to the next level and i'm
00:31
here to tell you that the blazers are
00:33
the new jean jackets for fall you ready
00:36
okay so starting with this little outfit
00:39
now as you see the outfit that i have on
00:41
i easily could have thrown a jean jacket
00:43
over it kept it a little more casual i
00:45
like to be a little more elevated okay
00:47
so
00:48
here we go topping it off with the
00:50
blazer i'm going to start with talking
00:51
about the blazer the blazer is by lemon
00:53
tart okay
00:55
it the nice thing i like about this is
00:57
there's no buttons
00:59
typically sometimes if there's a button
01:00
on people have a tendency to want to do
01:02
this it looks a little businessy so i
01:04
like the fact that it still has the
01:05
shape of it wood but there's no buttons
01:07
or anything fussy it's a very very soft
01:11
fabric almost like a t-shirt fabric so
01:13
there's there's no stiffness to it at
01:15
all so it's so comfortable if you are
01:18
back in the boardroom or if you are
01:20
sitting on a zoom call or things like
01:21
that for work super comfortable as
01:23
comfortable as a t-shirt honestly um
01:26
another thing i love about this you know
01:27
that i'm a girl who always kind of like
01:29
like puckers up my sleeves a little bit
01:31
especially when i'm showing an ankle in
01:34
this case these sleeves this is as long
01:36
as it goes because there's a little bit
01:38
of a ruching a little bit gathering here
01:40
that naturally puckers so you not you
01:42
don't have to deal with pushing up and
01:44
it falls down pushing up and it falls
01:45
down as you put it on it stays you're
01:48
ready to go so underneath this blazer i
01:51
put a little allison joy cami you've
01:53
seen me wear this before i kind of love
01:55
these camis because they're just a go-to
01:57
in the closet
01:59
i'm going to tell you with this little
02:00
cami the one i have on is cream again
02:02
it's adjustable straps so if you need it
02:06
higher or lower on your decollete you
02:08
have that option it also comes in two
02:10
other colors that we have right now this
02:12
one um online it's listed as gold i
02:15
would describe it maybe more of like a
02:17
pumpkin color and then it also comes in
02:19
a basic black and then can we talk about
02:22
the pants okay
02:24
so for fall one of the things on your
02:26
hit list that you need to have is a
02:28
vegan leather okay so these are by spanx
02:31
they're the leather like jogger okay
02:33
what makes it a jogger okay what makes
02:35
it a jogger is because it is gathered at
02:38
the ankle here okay again like a spank
02:40
you just pull her on i will tell you
02:42
with these joggers they're not as
02:45
constricting i would say as your as the
02:47
first spanx that ever came out we all
02:49
have that spank in our closet we gotta
02:51
lay on the bed and pull them on but in
02:52
the end we look great these you can go
02:55
with your true size like i'm wearing a
02:56
small right now and i'm typically a 26
02:58
27 and a jean they pull on very easily
03:01
but not like a compression pant if
03:04
that's uh the best way that i could
03:06
describe it so again it gathers on the
03:08
bottom now again i'm five nine look how
03:10
nice and long these are love it
03:12
another thing that i love about these
03:14
banks they have pockets so rarely in a
03:16
spank do you find a pocket and these i
03:18
just love sometimes you find a heel that
03:21
is so comfortable and these are the ones
03:23
these are by kenneth cole um it's kind
03:26
of like i would say a nude color and it
03:28
has a little bit of a suede to it so
03:30
these can take you all through fall even
03:32
into winter also if you do a shoe that
03:35
is nude um it actually elongates your
03:38
leg because every time you
03:40
adjust color your eye compartmentalizes
03:42
and it breaks it up a little bit so
03:43
keeping a new nude shoe just keeps that
03:46
long lean look that you're gonna want in
03:48
your legs okay
03:50
um and then you know me always got to
03:51
top it off with a little bit of jewelry
03:54
so um i i topped it off with this little
03:56
tiered necklace here again it's one
03:58
necklace but two layers because it's a
04:01
little bit um
04:02
more going on here with the lace and the
04:04
double layers i kept the earrings super
04:06
simple so it's a very simple stud now
04:09
this stud comes in a little pack i'm
04:12
going to show you quickly this little
04:13
pack so these are the studs i have on
04:15
but then there's also like a little
04:17
dangle and a tiny hoop so that's always
04:20
a great value to get three three for one
04:22
i guess and then um bracelets because i
04:24
always gotta have bracelets um this is a
04:26
little coiled bracelet just goes right
04:28
on so no matter if you have a real tiny
04:29
wrist or a thicker wrist it's easy on
04:31
easy off and i just have three of them
04:33
stacked right there let's talk about
04:35
this al uh ever eve
04:37
everly
04:38
pullover i love it it's a very very soft
04:42
sweater it's got a little bit of a
04:44
v-neck here um it's got look at the
04:46
little ribbing that starts at your
04:48
shoulder and comes all the way down
04:49
which i love because it gives a real
04:51
slim arm here
04:53
it's got this cute little cut on the
04:54
side it runs a little bit longer so if
04:57
you remember the jogger those spanx
04:59
joggers that i had on in the outfit
05:01
previous
05:02
if you still are a little unsure about
05:05
you love the jogger but you're unsure
05:06
about wearing something shorter with a
05:07
spank this is a great alternative you
05:09
could wear this with those same joggers
05:12
get the same look okay so i'm also going
05:14
to let you know that this sweater comes
05:16
in two other colors i'll show you
05:19
this one which is a basic black which
05:22
again you know us girls we like to have
05:23
that basic black sweater because it goes
05:25
with everything and then there's this
05:27
little i'm gonna call it like a plum
05:29
color a light plum cover i just love it
05:31
which is a hot color this fall really on
05:34
trend with that color so those are two
05:35
other colors that that comes in
05:38
i'm wearing them with skinny jeans we've
05:40
talked about skinny jeans my friend you
05:42
can wear them and rock them with
05:43
confidence skinny jeans these are the
05:45
good legs by good american and they're a
05:49
step hem
05:50
if that's a new term to you a step hem
05:53
what it is is the hem of the pant in the
05:55
back is one length and then the front is
05:58
a little bit shorter creating a step so
06:01
that's where the step hem comes in all
06:03
right and then um got these great little
06:06
sam edelman slides on how cute are they
06:08
so preppy with the cute little buckle
06:11
right here which i absolutely love and
06:13
then to top the whole thing off
06:16
comes the blazer are you ready from
06:18

06:27
