Summer Fashion Faves Part II - Jewel Tones & Nautical Stripes

I recorded this back with Part I - White Dress & Printed Skirt, but forgot to post. I don't feel strongly about any of the outfits in this segment, but they are each simple pairings that I've been wearing this summer, comprised of very affordable pieces.

*Note: Change video to HD (4th button in from the bottom right) for the original quality*
Outfit 1: Turquoise skirt from Savers thrift store ($1.99) DIY altered, Gap white tee, Ann Taylor cabachon necklace (on final sale for $19.88)

Outfit 2: Same skirt, H&M conscious collection floral blouse, Ann Taylor belt, Target Versie pumps (see my nude pump review)

Outfit 3: H&M kids striped tank (similar in adults for $8), H&M white shorts, clutch & belt (came with dress), Gap yellow sweater, Nordies Rack pearls, Target sandals

Outfit 4: Same tank, Mod cloth mustard pleated skirt (similar for $15.80), Theory blazer from outlet, Target sandals

  1. Another fantastic video, Jean. Thanks for the great work. Love the way you tuck in the extra fabric on the H&M shirt, and I will have to give it a try myself. Watching the way you work your clothes is like watching magic. Have a great week.

  15. Great video! I really like watching how you make all of the outfits come together, and your explanation of why you're doing what you're doing. It is incredibly helpful.

    Now if only I were as thin and beautiful as you...

  16. Another great video! I really love the casual tank top/shorts look. I'm always stumped about what to wear on the weekends with the kids. I feel so frumpy in just shorts and a tshirt, but when it's hovering 100, I don't know what else to wear. You show how some simple things (showing the belt buckle, adding pearls, draped cardigan) you can go from frump-a-dump to cool and chic.
    I also like the step-by-step folding tutorial on the drapey blouse. I never can get my blouses to scrunch like you or Kelly and now I see one way.
    Final comment: great way to show the statement necklace in a casual setting. I always feel so overdone in statement necklaces but just bought one and am going to try it out.
    All I can say is "more please"

  25. Great video - I really enjoyed watching it! It was just the right pace length and had such handy hints - I always struggle with billowy shirts! Can't wait for the next one

  26. Thank you for making such a wonderful and helpful video. Even though you didn't feel strongly about these outfits, the colours and different fabrics looked beautiful on you. I was just despairing on how much clothes and accessories could cost, but your turquoise pencil skirt from Savers cheered me up. Thank you also for the tip on the billowy sleeves because I hadn't heard of that before.

  28. Hi Jean,

    Do you wear some sort of a basic tank underneath tops that have a sheer material (like the H&M featured in your video)? I always thought the sheer tops look classy and formal but I don't like wearing something underneath all the time and also having to tuck in two pieces of clothing into my pencil skirt.

    Please advise! :)

    Thanks.

  31. Good job, Jean! Very informative.

    How do you made shorts look so chic? I always look like a teenager in shorts -_-

  32. Great video Jean. I loved the third look best because I'm partial to stripes and white. The bright space you filmed the video in is gorgeous. :)
