Shopping Inspirations

Posted on: June 15, 2015

If you are a regular reader of mine, I have often felt bad that some items that I have worn are things I bought on clearance or have had for awhile and can’t show you where to get for yourself…

So, when my Chadwick’s and Metrostyle Catologs came in the other day, 

I saw an opportunity to have some fun with that…

Zebra with Teal Skinnies/ Over 40 petite blogger/ Weight Watcher/

This zebra jacket is so dear to me and I’ve worn it quite often, 

while mine is jean jacket style…

Animal Print Jacket

Like mine,  this is by Metrostyle

and it comes in leopard print as well! 

Passionate for Pink Dresses and Skirts Over 40 Petite Blogger

I have this Chadwick’s dress in this color

, cobalt and black and I’ve worn them so much!  

Ruched Short Sleeve Knit A-line Dress

This one is similar with the perfect empire waistline ,as well.

It comes in 3 colors, not as vibrant as mine, but still fabulous! 

Shirred-front Dress

Here is another option in vibrant color that is on sale for just $26.99

IMG_3970I bought this maxi skirt this season, but have to say if I hadn’t 

Oversized Flower Maxi Dress

This would be a great option…

Gingham Shirtdress - Stretch Cotton Dress | Chadwicks of Boston

I bought this dress in a mint color earlier in the season

as the gingham trend is going strong…

Versatile Jean Jacket

I added a few colored jean jackets this season, 

not from these sites, but these are fun options with even a floral one…

Floral Print Skinny Belt | Chadwicks of Boston

And I couldn’t help sharing these floral belts for just $11.99 


I love linen pants….

Here is a link to their options for this season. 

Perfect Fit Poplin Shirt

I love this vibrant print poplin top in stretch cotton. 

Dear Readers there are really so many lovely items in these two catalogs and I want you to remember that I make no money from blogging and only pass this info on as I love their clothes and want to share them in case they are something that appeal to you.  

I highly recommend you check out both sites for other options! 


I am grateful that the long awaited beginning of the GYPO Summer Style Challenge will start tomorrow (Monday, as I am writing this Sunday night)  I will receive the e-mail with the first outfit inspiration in just one hour…

I am grateful to my husband and kids who all worked so hard doing some much needed yardwork in our overgrown backyard!  

I am grateful to my daughter for all her help in my whole house purging and am sure going to miss her as I continue on my own while she heads back to Boston College for a Summer class. 

I am grateful that my daughter will be returning in August as it makes it easier to say goodbye this time. 

I am grateful for watermelon, after reading about a group  that was stuck in a dome for 8 months to study what it would do to be confined like that for Mars research.  They mentioned that after eating freeze dried foods that they wanted watermelon, something I take for granted…

I am grateful for AC in these extremely hot days as I know there are those less fortunate.

You’ve chosen a nice variety of items!! But, of course you did, you have great taste!! jodie
ps…i think my fave is the zebra jacket! Especially how you wore it with turquoise!

Thank-you, I do love the word “versatile” lol’

Hi Tracey, I would like to know how you like your gingham dress from Chadwick’s ? Fit, quality and so forth. I have looked at this forever and for the price, I am so interested. As always, you are beautifully styling. Love your hair and great smile. As said before, you brighten my day. Thanks for sharing. Ps looking for a polka dot sweater

With my weight gain it was hard to Guage size. I bought the 8 which is the size I currently wearing. It is very body skimming and I would prefer a size up. Since my goal is to lose this darn weight I think it will be fine. I will try taking a photo and post so you can get a real idea.

Oops as for quality, I love these two brands and have had there items for years with never a problem.

Julie size up on the dress! So glad you asked, I should have mentioned that! The quality of these two companies is great. I have had so many pieces for 4-6 years that are all still in wonderful shape. Lol, that Polk a dot sweater I bought years ago from Chadwicks sister company Metrostyle several years ago!
