Turning Heads Linkup-Orange You Glad?


Yes, Another garment from Zara. This intricate lace in orange really caught my eye with the higher collar. 


You all know I am a “bag girl” and this LV Speedy Damier fit everything in it!



   Another “vintage-inspired look” with my necklace from 1928.com


This vintage pair of cameo earrings were purchased at a thrift store in Charleston

I would have never thought I would be wearing orange. I think when I was younger the only time I wore orange was Oct 31st, on Halloween. The color has appealed to me, just a bright color that seems to work with my ginger hair. The higher collar appealed to me, as well as this intricate and well made lace in this shift dress. The shoes will be worn often with many of my outfits this summer, as who can resist flowers as if they are growing like a vine up your feet!

My family from Pittsburgh is here, so it is time to entertain! You all know, the time that one gets out the vacuum cleaner more often than one might otherwise! They visit in the summer, and the chorus and echo of “Boy, is it hot”! continues throughout the week! They came in to see my niece peform as a ballet dancer, as particularly sweet as it is as she is almost 5. It was a fun day enjoying older children dancing,  dances anywhere from more ballet inspired, pop moves, and also some more modern dancing in the repetoire.

This was my look for the recital and out for a bit of a bite afterward. Now, the time we have all been waiting for !…. #TurningHeadsTuesday #linkup! Let me mention there were over 127 linkups last week and I am so thankful that you all are so supportive and participating. I wanted to mention if it is possible to come back later in the week, as we had about 28 additional links after Tuesday.

Moving on…

Alice, of Happiness at Midlife is my wonderful Co-Host today!! I was so pleased!! I love Alice’s style and I often find we have very similar taste as she and I by from Ann Taylor and at times end up with the same skirts or other garments. Alice is very down to earth, has a great collection of jewelry, cardigans and lovely skirts. She also kicks butt doing deadlifts at the gym! You can see it on IG!

We DID NOT color coordinate for this link-up, see? It just happened. I love this look!


As a co-host please follow her on: Instagram and Bloglovin

Now, the three ladies that were picked were as follows, most clicked, trendy, and personally picked by me.

Casey, from A Little Bit of Cheer, had an interesting read on Mom’s Style Files, showing how to dress in “real life ways, wearing colors, florals and items she has found in her closet!


Lovin’ this trendy blue print shift dress on Sabina of OceanBlue Style. Isn’t the print so pretty!


And congratulations to Lauren of Lauren Mcbride Blog, who is looking radiant in her colorful mosiac skirt!


If you are interested in being a Co-HOST on #TurningheadsTuesday, please send me a message!


Time to, as I would say to my little shih tzu’s Gibby and Truffles when it is time to do something… “Let’s Rock n Roll!”

    Such a pretty dress, Jess! So many colours suit you well and this is definitely perfect for you again. I only found out not too long ago that all shades of red and orange are great for my complexion and especially orange next to my face really brightens it up.
    Glad you are enjoying the performance, my daughter ws doing ballet when she was at that age for several years.

    That lace dress is gorgeous, and I really like the orange on you! You should definitely wear orange more often 🙂

    Your speedy is a nice accessory too – do you use a base shaper with yours or is it just still quite new and stiff? Mine is a little abused and slouchy now haha.

    It might be another garment from Zara, but it is also another very beautiful lace dress in your collection 🙂 The shade really suits you.
