Today I am showing you the rest of what I won in the drawing, and discussing my feelings about Janska products.
The drawing, held by Shelley over at Still Blond After All These Years allowed me to select my own items, up to $199.00 in retail value, so you can understand why I was so excited! That is a lot of retail value there! The prices on the items are not bad at all either, so I was able to get a lot of stuff!
The other two items I selected are the Janska Fleece Cloche Hat and the Janska Sophia Jacket.
The items are fleece so they are not entirely too heavy but let me tell you they do keep you warm! We have very cold weather here in Kansas and I have worn this jacket out and about on two very cold nights already and it has keep me so cozy! These items are so fashionable, and even a little funky they are. I mean that in a good way! What is the point of fashion if we don't allow ourselves to have a little fun, step out of our comfort zone and embrace something new and different?
Women our age already are plagued with the issue of "Can I pull this off?" usually around fashion becoming too young for us, or not feeling we look young enough to wear something. When I got the Janska items I will tell you that my first impression was is this too old for me? The truth is, this is my fashion age, and what I do with it, how I style it, is what makes it me. Now, I am in love with my Janska jacket and hat! I was able to pull out all of my pins and select one to put on the hat which has opened up a whole world of styling options for me. Many of these pins had belonged to my great grandmother, grandmother, and her twin sister, my aunt. I also have always been a "hat person" so I am feeling this fashion more and more after my photo shoot with my hubby.
Let me share with you some photos:
Keeping it young and fun with some maroon booties, and edgy jewelry! Now as if this jacket is not cute enough as is, guess what... it's reversible!

Can you believe how adorable these items are? I also love the subtle grey edging showing lightly on the black side of the jacket, and the black edging on the grey side.

In my post about the MocSocks I told you more about Janska as a company but today I want to introduce you to Jan herself!
When I founded Janska in 2003 my dream was to make clothing that’s both comforting and beautiful.
Isn't she just the prettiest woman! She just beams with joy from the inside out, which draws me in and makes me want to buy her clothing! I also absolutely love the color of the coat she is wearing in her photo!
Here is more about Jan and her mission:
