Crisp and Clean









     I enjoy this time of year when I can still wear a jacket with a summer sandal. By combining basics like a comfortable knit stretch skirt with a cotton moto jacket I'm ready for the day. I've seen so many stylish and modern designs in sandals this spring that are comfortable yet interesting. I like the easy wedge heel and the ankle strap which adds a feminine detail. Adding an of-the-moment sandal to pieces already in the closet is an easy way to update the basics.

    1. Thanks Carelia, I'm such a jacket gal. I bought a couple of jackets like this on sale at Gap, simple and good fitting. I had not thought about nautical but you are right.

  6. My first thought was the same like Suzanne, the Sandals look stylish and comfy at the same time. I fall in love with theses sandals. The rest of the outfit is pretty too and I would like to wear the outfits, very chic dear Ann.
    I wish you a nice weekend

  9. How do you make a Gap jacket look a million dollars? I love this outfit on you! Great consignment find (My wallet just had a sigh of relief that these were not a recent purchase at a retailer) - those shoes are fabulous!

    1. Ah thanks Alice, I must admit I've never purchased anything at the Gap before and I was surprised how much I like this jacket. It was on the sale rack, a bunch of them left. I would have made the link but none available on the web. It might still be in the stores in your area.

  12. Navy is stunning on you:). And I love the exposed zippers on the jacket. You are Queen Jacket! And a pencil skirt is such a classic garment. As always you look just beautiful.

    1. Hi Deborah, thought of you when I decided to wear this knit pencil skirt. Do you wear a skirts like this? I have several that work good with sandals for spring time and are easy to wear plus comfortable.

  13. I would never have thought that a Gap jacket could look this well fitting and elegant. I also love jackets and feel that they
    make any outfit more polished and put together. Ann - you look great!

  14. That reminds me - I need to get at least one new pair of sandals this year (although my old ones are still holding up really well). So many pretty styles - I love that woven strap on your red ones.

  17. BEAUTIFUL....very very good ensemble. And those sandals are so pretty!!! By the way, you and your footware have inspired me and I bought sort of open toe booties... Very modern, very not me. I wonder how I will experience them. Freedom? And .."more of those"? Or... "no this is not me?". Time will tell. Truth is, I thought of you (and Dixie) when I bought them.

  18. Dear Ann, I feel with you. I like this season too, because it is not to warm to wear a jacket but warm enough to wear sandals or shoes without socks. And you have gorgeous sandals. I also love wedges, because they are more comfortable to wear than "normal" high heels. Your outfit is great - an effortless chic and through the red details your outfit become very special. Furthermore I love the blue color in all variations. Dear greetings, Conny

  19. This is a great look on you. Very flattering! I love the shoes paired with it.

  20. Fabulous, Anne! How about our weather today, huh? Even in this wet season, we can still sport some fun boots with a trench. I think I'll wear that tomorrow if it continues to pour! Like always, you look MAGNIFICENT! Happy day, Anita

  21. A touch of red is a good idea to brightnen up an outfit, and your new sandals are so nice! They look also confortable, so, is there anything better?? :-)
    Your whole outfit is lovable and the jacket is perfect in spring...( what's more, the zip fastener gives a beautiful modern look to it!)

  26. I'm attracted to the interesting details of the jacket and the clean lines of the skirt. The clutch and red sandals add the perfect amount of color. Your sandals are very unique and have inspired me to keep my eyes open for something new/old in the open toe category!
