Turning Heads Linkup – Lilac Spring Outfit and Poshmark Deals


Hello Ladies!

Well, this weekend we had some sun in Charlotte! Since I took some days to recuperate from my NYC trip, I was then ready to get out of the house! I thought i would put use my new scarf from Charming Chariles with it’s blue, lavendar, pink and olive tones to use. I wanted to style an outfit around it, and knew my Ann Taylor dress, i had purchased from Poshmark, a few years ago, would go perfectly!

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter day. We had planned on having my sister’s family over, but my neice was sick. So, we spent a friday and Satr going out with the puppies and exploring some areas of our city. There was an event  Saturday at our local D9 brewery, with music, food trucks, and doggies.. Since i am not a beer drinker, my options are usualy “red” or “white’. This time, it was Chardonnay, or Malbec! Oooh, fan-cy!!

We took these pics with the sun out, as my hubby likes to get photos with the sun behind us as it shines down on my hair. I have had this dress for some years, and it is so easy to wear, I love to dress it up with additional layers and color. After i styled it with the scarf, I chose to wear one of my other favorite moto jackets. This is from Anthropologie, and the ruffle detail on the back, and quilted detail on the shoulder, caught my eye. I also love the teal color . i told you I had a thing for moto jackets, as this is what i wear often when its cold in Charlotte. The jacket is from Anthro, but i bought it also from Poshmark for a steal! Three items out of my outfit are all from Poshmark, where i have found some great deals! If you haven’t read my post on What it Is and  How to Shop on Poshmark, you can! 

Did my Essie Gel nails in a Lilac color 😉

Vintage Earrings via Etsy

Speaking of Posh steals, this new Rebecca Minkoff bag was just the thing i was looking for. i came across it, as it was a similar style from the one that Amy and Cheryl have, although it is off white. i just couldn’t resist the braiding and the tassels! I got it for for $50 dollars shipped, and love a smaller bag sometimes, where things don’t get lost at the bottom of the bag.

I love to be able to take existing items in my closet, and create a new look. i really think that is what fashion is about, and how I can be creative.

Have a great day!

    I just love that green jacket. I need to try more colors with my jacket. I usually stick to black or navy. It really looks great with the pink/lavendar scarf/dress! I was just admiring another bloggers Rebecca Minkoff bag! I need to check those out. I love yours!

    I always love your colour combinations. You’ve inspired me to wear green with one of my new dresses… two, actually. I wouldn’t have thought to pair either with green till I saw this post.

    Ha, my boyfriend also drags me to places where there is “red” and “white” wine, so I’m glad you had your choice of actual varietals for Easter! Super cute dress, too, and I love how you’ve styled it with the floral scarf.

    Lilac is perfect color for springtime looks. Also, the shade of your jacket accentuates your hair color perfectly. Beautiful outfit!

    Happy Tuesday Jess!

    Jess, I absolutely love this outfit. First I love the color combination. The purple and green are such a good choice for spring. Your jacket is so cute and I now have “moto jacket envy”! The scarf is the piece that ties it all together and the look is beautiful! Well, done! – Amy

    Lavender is a great color on you, Jess. I like it paired with the green jacket and scarf. Green and lavender is not a color combination I might think of pairing, but you look beautiful and it makes me want to give the combo a try! Love that scarf, also! Thanks for hosting the link party.

    I love Poshmark!! One of my favorite designer bags that I bought came from there, and it was completely authentic and about 1/2 the price..which made it even better. It has a few scuff marks, and wasn’t perfect..but no one would even know it! Love this super cute look on you, Jess…we both got the lilac memo today! xo

    Ok. I got to the line that your husband likes to get photos of you with the sun shining down on your hair and had to go straight to comments. How sweet is that?? And I love to hear about hubbies that are able to support and help their wife live their dream. Anyway, your dress is almost as lovely as your hair and I agree – it’s perfect with your new scarf. Have a wonderful week!

    Wow, I can’t believe you got all of that from Poshmark! Great finds! I love that dress, both the color and the cut. The detail on that jacket really makes it special, no wonder it’s from Anthro! I can’t afford their prices but I love their pieces. Your scarf ties it all together. Love the color on your nails too – Spring perfect from head to toe Jess!

    Jess, this color combination is brilliant! Your scarf is gorgeous and the ruffle hem on your jacket really elevates it to a whole new level. Such a beautiful outfit, my friend.

    Your moto jacket is beautiful! The color is different and lovely and I love the ruffles such a fun addition to your outfit. Happy belated Easter and it sounds like you had a good weekend though you weren’t able to spend time with family. I hope your niece is feeling better today though and she is on the up. Wishing you a marvelous week ahead and happy Tuesday!
