The Red Kimono: ok or too much? ETA: Long jeans & column of black

Angie's blog post reminded me of a kimono that I use as a robe. Does it work with jeans on me? I would love your thoughts.
Bonus of what I wore to meet a group of new neighbors...black and bone.

Capsule for my citron ankle pants

Angie's post inspired me to do a small capsule for my own citron or light yellow gold ankle pants. I wish that I could like directly to my capsule but will try to put it in Finds on this post. Theses are the items that seemed to work when trying things on. I stuck to white as the neutral. I am posting this in hopes to inspire others to make capsules. Would you make any eliminations? Do you see holes?

Chopped jeans

Inspired by Angie, I took a scissors and chopped. Did I chop off enough?
These are shown with 1.5 inch heeled pumps. I have ankle strap flats too to try.
The jeans have not been washed yet since the chop. Is the flare at the bottom too large? I can always cut them shorter for summer clam diggers.
What do you think so far?

K/R: Unstructured Shirt Dress Photos now added

I found this shirt dress at Target. It is s little big but 100% cotton. So will probably shrink a little in the wash. Is it good enough to keep? It even has side seam pockets! Shown here with black leggings.

My Dove Grey capsule

Angie's blog post about grey prompted me to post this: My dove grey capsule, mostly for transitional weather or basics any time. Some of these pieces are getting old and will need to be evaluated. I did not include bone white except the pencil skirt. I also did not include dark grays and some silver metallics. I appreciate all comments and suggestions. I want to add a pair of low heeled silver metallic pumps, although I have not found any that work for over a year.

Jacket Lab: Help me sort these out

Keep, donate, toss, restyle differently?
Here are some jackets that I am unsure about. A few I love but can't figure out how to wear, some I wonder if they just are not right. I would love your thoughts.
1-3: a jacket that was a generous gift but I have trouble styling.
4-5: white denim Jean jacket. Too cropped for pants? Do I need a bigger one?
6: new still with tags. Is it too oversized? To young looking for me to wear casually?
7-9: another jacket I love but do not wear much. Ideas?
10-11: I like the color but should I donate it?
I would appreciate knowing any impressions that you have.

Neutral Spring Drape 3 ways

Inspired by Angie's blog post, I wore a couple versions of neutral spring drape. The white and navy version was for a warmer day. The black sweater was for a cold morning. I wore a leather coat with this about the color of the booties. Are these too high contrast for me?
There was a third version on Saturday morning that did not get photographed that used my color block poncho. I will try to recreate it and get a photo. ETA: close to Saturday version except I used an animal print blouse as a top rather than the striped tee.

Are These Dated?

I found these still hanging around my closet, probably because
1: they are ink, not black
2: they are a high heel for me but very comfortable.
Are these on trend for spring or just too dated? Not only the wide heel to consider, but the rounded square toe shape. What do you think? I'd love a pair of navy pumps to wear this spring but now to your wisdom.

Should I wear this?

The nubby poncho was a gift and I need to figure out some ways to wear it. Does this white out version work? Are light tights/stockings too much? Pearls? Earrings? I need your thoughts and ideas.

Help needed to style a sweater dress

Angie's blog article on creating a cozy holiday look with a sweater dress sent me to the closet. This post is based on a medium grey Calvin Klein dress I've had for a few years. The toppers are all from my closet. Do you like any of these? I'd appreciate your opinions and suggestions for how to make this basic dress more festive.
1. is the basic dress with a simple scarf. I have other scarves. The other photos show other possible stylings. Thoughts?
