Hey awesome ones, if you remember my Spring/Summer fashion shopping trek at the mall a week ago you'll remember the new powder blue jacket that I bought. I showed you one outfit with a monochromatic look of a matching top underneath and that cool rose-gold purse but what about more looks? In this lookbook style video I shop my own closet and come up with 4 more looks for a total of 5 to help me get through the warmer weather. From dressy to casual this blazer /jacket can work with jeans, dresses, capris, Tee shirts, blouses & more. Although i have a lot of women viewers over 50, this video vlog could also be of interest to a woman in her thirties or forties too. So get inspired to get a statement spring piece of clothing and shop your closet to mix and match your outfits!

AAAAHHHH Heather I love this color on you. You look absolutely gorgeous in all the outfits you paired together with this jacket and the way you have your hair straight! AAAAAHHHH Just Stunning! All the outfits are so pretty and so trendy! Love these videos! I hope you, Bill and Hurricane have a very Happy St. Pattys Day weekend!
Hiya Hurricane sweetie! I've got some dress slacks that I need to do some serious rethinking on. I live in the south, so jackets are pretty rare on the rack. I have problems with looking too wide in the hips.
Hi Rhonda... try having a flowing top over your darker colored pants or skirt and just tuck in one side and let the rest drape over. See if the illusion makes your hips look smaller. Long statement necklaces also moves the eye away from the hips. Hope this helps.
You really know how to put outfits together, Heather! 😀👍💙loving the blue on you! Love the ponytail too! Can you show us how u did that? It doesn't look like a regular pony to me? Hurricane looked especially cute in this video 🐶💙
P.S. If you care to share... I'm really curious how you film these. Do you film the outfits first, then the talking one? It's done really well (the editing) you make it appear like there's 2 Heathers, lol. Great job, Bill 👍
I just set the ponytail off center so you could see it in the video. Bill films me talking close up first. Then we load it into the computer and play it back as I model according to the words. Bill films this part then edits it in with Premier elements. I really like how it looks. Just bought a new camera for beauty videos, should be using it for Friday's video, let me know if you can see a difference? Thanks!
Oh Heather...the beautiful model in you is alive and well! This is my favorite video you do! FASHION! You pull anything off and make it look current and gorgeous with an edgy twist....keeping us relevant and stunning. I just love you my friend! xxoo Sues & The Dez
Heather I know you’ve got links to amazon, but can you tell me specifically what boyfriend jeans you have? They are so cute and nothing I can find seems to be quite the same. I’ve seen them in so many of your videos and finally decided to ask. Love all the looks!
Great looks and versatile blazer! My favorite look is the little black dress and blue blazer. Love the powder blue color of the blazer too! It's a great wardrobe piece! Love and happiness from Teresa
Love and hugs to Hurricane.
LOVE, LOVE this light blue jacket and top 💙 and I love how you styled it so many different ways, your NYC handbag is gorgeous, I have never seen anything like this before 💖. Looking forward to next weeks video, and it will be fun to see the commercial that you did back in the 80's.......thanks so much for sharing girl, wishing you well 💕
Heather your pants look great . I think they are more boot cut or slight flares rather than bell bottoms . Boot cut and straight legs I think are flattering and a bit classy on older babes . Looking stylish 😊
Wow, Heather! Great outfits, and you look fantastic, hair, makeup, accessories, all immaculate. I particularly loved the last outfit, and those great shoes. Your little purse is awesome, and the tassel earrings are cool. I really like well cut jackets - even when worn casually, they're smart. I'm heading for my wardrobe, first the clear-out, then the assessment! Thanks so much for the inspiration. I hope you, Bill, and sweet little Hurricane have a lovely weekend. :)
Love love love the New York purse and the tie dye pumps!
Spring is finally starting to tease us here in Montana! I actually saw raw top of our bird bath today! Iam getting anxious to get out the spring clothes but it will have to wait until some of this snow melts
Thanks for a great video.
Big hugs to all three of you - Barbara
I don't wear many jackets while we are in the desert, I have many jackets at home I love them all especially with my jeans all of a sudden I look put together, I may have to pull them out and do a video one of these days.
Great video Heather.
Just got back from Disney World where you always see a lot of Europeans and Asians from Japan and China. The cropped ankle length seemed to be very popular. I liked the silhouette but haven't had the chance to try it myself .
I love this edgy look! I was so excited that her hair, even as short as it is now, was still able to be put into the fun and trendy dutch pigtail braids! Instead of braiding to the ends, I ended them in close together pigtails at the nape of her neck. After I finished braiding, I tugged on the outsides of the braid gently to loosen them and make them a little messy and fun! Since she doesn’t have enough hair to tie around the elastics, I made sure to use elastics that matched her hair so they blend in as much as possible. You could also cover them with clips or bows! A view from the back of her Dutch pigtail braids! A great braid for short hair is a micro accent braid! My biggest tip for braiding short hair would be to add in small slices of hair rather than big ones. I did a small (micro) braid along a slightly curved deep part for anther cute and edgy look! You could also do another one next to it if you wanted a little more to the look, but I really liked how simple this one was. You can see how the part curves a little better from this view of the back. I ended the braid close to the head with an elastic that matched her hair. For our fourth style, we did a 3/4 french braid! Super simple but also super cute! You could do any type braid! It would also look cute using a Dutch braid or a fishtail braid! I loved the side view of this braid! I will for sure be doing this one next time she goes to gymnastics or swimming, whichever comes first! Our last braid is two four dutch lace braids into two loops in the back. Start off by parting the hair down the middle. On each side of the part, do a dutch lace braid, adding hair in from only the section closest to the part as you braid. Tie the braids together in the back with a small elastic and before you pull the hair all the way through to make a ponytail, leave it in a cute little loop! If the hair is a little bit longer, you could do a tiny bun. Repeat this directly under the braid you just did so you have two rows and two loops.
We will have to be coming up with lots more short hair braids in the future, so be sure to give us a follow over at our newly redesigned blog Abella’s Braids to see more as we do them!
Thanks for reading! See you again this time next month!
love these ideas! My daughter recently cut about 8 inches off her hair and is loving her shorter hair, but I’ve mostly been at a loss of what to do with it! Thanks!
Abella has been begging me for at least a year, probably closer to two years, to cut her hair. I posted a photo on Instagram with a question in the caption. “Abella has been begging me to cut her hair short, do you think I should let her do it?” Almost everyone said “YES!” So thanks to all of the good advice from my followers, we did it…and we haven’t regretted it for a second! I think she looks so cute and it really fits her personality! It’s for sure a lot harder to come up with braids but it’s pushed me to step out of my comfort zone! We wanted to show you that even if you have short hair, there are lots of cute braids you can still do!
This first braid (above) is three ladder braids. Start out with a part deep to one side. On the side with less hair, start out by doing a waterfall braid along the part. Under that one, do another waterfall braid, but incorporate the waterfall pieces from the one above it as you braid. Under that one, do a french braid. Incorporate the waterfall pieces from the second braid as you go. We braided each one to the ends and used elastics that matched her hair to tie them off.
