So, I am really excited to see that I got another Stitch Fix referral credit!! Another $25.00 off my next fit. So far , I have had 22 people sign uo and get their fix shipped to them. I really hpe that they like it as much as I do!!!
The brands I have received so far have been right on track for me. I have also been pinning styles I love on my Pinterest board. I really think they must look at it. Because, so far, they have been getting me.
I really love these styles above, they match me, so I pinned them. I have an olive anorak jacket , so , I am excited to se if they send something to match it. I also asked for a cute button up, maybe in a pattern or floral. I love the fit of jeans they have sent, spot on, and I asked for a light color like lt blue or pink for spring.
Maybe I will get something like one of these outfits, I love the neutral grey or tan with the light pink. So feminine! Add a little lace!!

From colors that are bright and vivid to those that convey a sense of earthiness, our top 10 colors for spring 2017 are reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature. In conjunction with New York Fashion Week, the PANTONE Fashion Color Report provides a comprehensive overview of fashion designers’ use of color in their spring 2017 collections. Featuring the top 10 shades seen on the runway, the PANTONE Fashion Color Report is your essential color guide to the season.
“One of the things that we saw this year, was a renewed sense of imagination in which color was appearing in context that was different than the traditional,” said Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute. “Reminiscent of the hues that surround us in nature, our Spring 2017 Fashion Color Report evokes a spectrum of emotion and feeling. From the warmth of sunny days with PANTONE 13-0755 Primrose Yellow to the invigorating feeling of breathing fresh mountain air with PANTONE 18-0107 Kale and the desire to escape to pristine waters with PANTONE 14-4620 Island Paradise, designers applied color in playful, yet thoughtful and precise combinations to fully capture the promises, hope and transformation that we yearn for each Spring.”

I am all about this new olive trend. I have found the cutest things to go with my Anorak Jacket I found on clearance at Kohls!!
I realized I had a lot more olive that I knew! I had purchased a really cute rayon tunic with a tie up neckline from Martin’s clothing, and a long sleeve tee from Kohls designed by Vera Wang.. I love her long sleeve tees. These are some pics I took from Pinterest, of things I really love!!
Here are some pices I already own. I am realy loving these looks. You can wear the anorak jacket with just about anything from shorts to knit tee dresses. Dress it up or dress it down. TRy it with shorts in a white or distressed denim jeans.
