Terry’s J.McLaughlin Dress and Puffer Try On

My plan was to quickly return something to J.McLaughlin and come back home, but as soon as I entered the store I was so mesmerized by the happy colors and beautiful prints that I decided to stay awhile and try on a few things. (I ended up buying four–a Short Sleeve Puffer and Gingham Top in the store and another Short Sleeve Puffer and The Poet Sweater In Stripe on line a few days later.)

I also was struck with how pretty another patron looked wearing a J.McLaughlin Ivory Sleeveless Shift Dress (on sale) with a Short-Sleeve Puffer Jacket and Nude Suede Heels. I loved her outfit so much, in fact, that I asked her if I could film and photograph her for my YouTube channel and blog. She was so sweet, she said yes. Her name is Terry, she is from Naples, and she did such a great job of modeling for me, especially considering she is not a model, I am a total stranger to her, and I accosted her out of the blue! Two photographs of her are below and the video clip of her modeling the outfit is featured on the YouTube video at the bottom of this post. Thank you, Terry 🙂

My Quick and Casual OOTD

The outfit I wore that day is so comfortable and, I confess, repeats two items I’ve already shown in the last two months. I also, again, wasn’t wearing any makeup, and even the lip gloss is old and no longer being made. Had I known I was going to film myself, I would have at least worn a lip color that was available, because so many of you like to know where you can purchase the clean makeup products I wear.

Nevertheless, I thought it was a good idea to show you the real me, unplanned, so you can see I do repeat the same items, even exact outfits within the same month. Especially when I decide to go out last minute, and I am on a limited time schedule, so I want to get dressed quickly.

My outfit consisted of Light Beige Pull-On Chinos and a Dark Wash Denim Shirt. I carried my Louis Vuitton My LV World Tour Crossbody Bag. I love these chinos, because of the easy pull-on style and light khaki color (although they also are available in a pretty navy). I’ve lost count how many times I’ve worn them!

If you have any questions about any of the items I’ve featured in this post, I’d be happy to answer them the best I can.
