New Year Styled: Olive Moto


Welcome back to New Year Styled with my fashion sisters at The Blended Blog.  Thank you to everyone who linked up with us last week!  We keep growing and it's thanks to all of you.

While I'm on another self imposed shopping freeze, it's a great time to take a critical look at my closet. There's a lot of stuff in there (and even more in the boys' rooms...and maybe some things packed away in boxes).  As I work towards being a #bettermeby50, I want the things I wear to make me feel pretty and confident.  In the next few months I intend to evaluate every piece of clothing I own, and only keep the pieces that I truly enjoy.

This olive green moto jacket will probably go in the donate pile.  While I love the color, it's a little big, so I don't wear it very often.  The cream turtleneck sweater and black ponte pants are a staple in my wardrobe, but I could probably do better with the top layer.  To add to the confusion, my husband told me that he really likes this outfit. He's no help!




What do you think fashion friends?  Should it stay or go?

  3. haha, I love when you have made up your mind and then someone goes and changes it, hehe :) I like it, but can understand why you want to give it away. If you don't feel comfortable and pretty wearing it I say get rid of it!

    1. I know, right? I like the jacket, but it just feels big and clunky to me.

  4. I think it should stay! I did a big clean out of my closet last week. Boy did it feel awesome.

    1. Another vote for keeping. I keep trying to clean out my closet, but then I want to wear everything first!

  5. I like it but once you mentioned it was a little big, I could see that. I love you in other colors better.

  6. I like the outfit, but the jacket is a bit big, and I think one a bit smaller will be more faltering. The pants and sweater are great!

  8. Personally I love this look! It made me wonder why I don't wear my olive green moto jacket more! But if it's a bit big (even though it looks fine to me!), you might want to donate it and then replace it. I find if something doesn't fit right, I just don't wear it.

    1. I think that's what I'm going to do. It's been sitting in my closet for a while!

  11. I love that you paired this with a sweater..it's like you couldn't decide to be defiant or cozy, so you went for both. Love it.

  12. I think it looks good too. But I could see how it could be a bit big since you are wearing it with a bulky-ish sweater with this outfit. Maybe think if you could wear it with anything else besides sweaters?

    1. Yes, I need to try it with something else before I decide.

  13. I often go through my closet to get rid of things I don't wear. Mostly because I have a very small closet and I for every new thing in, something has to go!

    1. Something in, something out is a great idea. I need to try that!

  14. Not to make it even more difficult, but your husband is right. This really is a great outfit! I love the olive jacket! I vote for keeping it (or sending it my way! Ha!). Thanks for linking up with me On the Edge!

  15. That is a cute moto jacket. I used to own an olive one. You are so put together while being very comfortable.


    Do come join my most recent linkup with this great outfit. Thanks.

  16. I'd be keeping it, super cute on you and I love how you styled it

  17. Great colour on you and I think slightly big is fine over a jumper. Small can be bulky. I did a blog on throwing out a red jumper. Readers didn't agree and it's now still with me. I need to figure out how to make it work. Readers, got to love them :)

  18. Just found you through Launna and am looking forward to being able to read more and more of your blog posts. She mentioned Yoga and it is something I have wanted to try for a LONG time, too. I am your newest follower. Hugs, Diana
