Jumpsuits for spring, black and more

Kohl’s sent along a gift card and I just had to try the jumpsuit trend that has been all over the runway. Back in the early 80s, jumpsuits of this similar style were very popular (but with HUGE shoulder pads). I love how easy it is to dress a jumpsuit up or down. Just switch out the belts, change up the jacket or wrap, vary the jewelry and you have a different elegant look each time.

You can wear a romper length, a culotte length, or full length as I am here.

While jumpsuits aren’t all that great for bathroom breaks, they are phenomenal for adding a touch of class.  Kohl’s has a huge jumpsuit collection for spring with choices from junior’s, women’s and plus sizes. The best part is many are on clearance, or at great affordabe Kohl’s pricing. Then you can combine coupons, discounts, and free shipping and get 2 or 3!  BAHAHA!

Blog Notes

Palazzo Pants Are the New Jeans! Monroe and Main for Spring

Palazzo Pants, the wear anywhere pants

Monroe and Main Palazzo Pants Shelley Zurek Still Blonde after all these YEARS

The pant for any age — Palazzo pants

What are palazzo pants? They are long women’s trousers cut with a loose, extremely wide leg that flares out from the waist. Palazzo pants for women first became a popular trend in the late 1960s and early 1970s, I distinctly remember my mom had a black pair. She was only 5′ 2″ but somehow she carried them off.

This spring you will find palazzo pants and trousers everywhere. You will find every color under the sun, however, the most prevalent look and fabric for this season, is a black and white graphic print, such as these Weekend Palazzo Pants from Monroe and Main that they sent along asked me to style. Discover how the looks I created with the palazzo and how easy this pant style is for anyone to wear.

Monroe and Main Palazzo Pants Shelley Zurek Still Blonde after all these YEARS

Date Night

Yes, that’s STILL snow in the background but I am ignoring it and thinking SPRING. When Walt takes me out, I always dress up. The Weekend Palazzo pants ($70) from Monroe and Main worn with their off the shoulder Lace Peasant top ($50, $13 Sale) gives just the right mix of elegance and sexy.  Strappy sandals (new from Salvation Army $4) and a vintage necklace from my mother are the final touches!

Monroe and Main Palazzo Pants Shelley Zurek Still Blonde after all these YEARS

Off to the Theater

Just to show you can always step up the elegance factor, I paired my palazzos with this gorgeous blush pink  Monroe and Main Gala Tux Jacket ($99, also worn here), this figure flattering Monroe and Main Scuba Peplum top ($60), and a just the right size Monroe and Main Metal Mesh Bag ($40). Just in case I need to head out dancing afterward, my shoes are Seychelles in black and pink (similar $100).

Shopping around town

Because I work at home all day, when I go shopping I like to dress fun and bright.  My Monroe and Main palazzos look cute with this bright aqua one-size-fits-all Monroe and Main Reversible tank ($20). This tank comes in 4 other colors (black, cobalt, coral and white) and I MUST HAVE THEM ALL!  For shoes, I have on my ribboned Bally Oxfords (similar) and my favorite vintage cashmere cardigan (also worn here).

Lunch at the Pool

That SNOW in background is distracting but this is a wonderful outfit for hanging out by the pool in the summer. Once again, I paired the palazzo pants with my bright aqua one-size-fits-all Monroe and Main Reversible tank but this time I also wore this Monroe and Main Crochet Shrug ($40). While I have tons of shrugs, this is my favorite because it’s longer. For women over 45 with a larger bust, a shrug can really be forgiving. Make sure to check out how my blogging partner Katy styled the palazzo pant as well over on Modly Chic.

Oh Yippee! It’s almost spring. You can see in Michigan it takes a bit longer to get here. Janska sent me their Spitfire and Takoma jackets in anticipation of the new season. Both jackets are from Spring All Weather Collection.

The Spitfire Jacket $199 (Reversible) has a real motocross feel.  It is the perfect travel piece and super cute with the all weather Janska Splash Hat $39.  This sleek jacket is double-breasted, with double reversible zippers, wide contrasting collar, and generous pockets. I like how it’s dressy enough to wear with a dress but looks super with jeans as well. And look how easy it is to pack in your tote:

The Tacoma Jacket ($185)- is one of Janska’s bestsellers in this collection. I think this is my favorite Janska jacket for spring! I seriously want one in at least two more colors. I seriously think I could use the gray and tan as well.   It has an oversized hood and unique detailing in the back, isn’t it adorable?

This sheath style dress is the perfect cut for my hourglass figure. It minimizes the bust, skims over the bumps and ends at the perfect point just above the knee.

Monroe and Main Spring 2015 Shelley Zurek Still Blonde after all these YEARS

With the plethora of colors in this dress, I can choose almost any shoe, sweater or piece of jewelry in my closet and I can make the dress look totally different.  Here’s a few other very different looks.

In the elegant look above, I have turned the dress into a top, pairing it with a lined tulle skirt.  How’s that for variety?

Monroe and Main Spring Graphic Print Dress Shelley Zurek Still Blonde after all these YEARS Here I strike a more casual pose, and the dress moves effortlessly into that realm as well.  The slightly above the knee length enables me to wear the Monroe and Main Geometric dress with high shoes and not look trampy or low shoes and not look frumpy.

Pantone, the leading authority in color, recently announced its rich, captivating 2015 Color of the Year Marsala. Described as a “naturally earthy and robust wine red” by Pantone, this deep red-brown hue will be the must-have color in fashion, beauty and home décor in the coming year. Here’s some example pieces that you can find on Kohl’s site currently, but hurry this color sells out fast!

Marsala wine is a fortified wine from Sicily. It’s commonly used for cooking to create rich caramelized sauces. When you are wearing Marsala, you forget about the winter cold and start dreaming of the gorgeous Sicilian sun and countryside!

Kohl’s has so many different pieces in the Marsala tones, but if you see something in that tone…BUY IT! I found several of the items that I adored were gone just a week later. The marsala color is hot hot hot this year! Also visit Tanya’s Shopping Diet Blog  on Facebook to see how she styled the Marsala color.
