Summer Dress-ing

As the weather gets warmer I find wearing dresses (like skirts) is a great way to stay cool and comfortable. I tend to like dresses that are full, loose and fall below the knee. They are really easy to move about in and look terrific with flats! There's just something about summer weather that makes wearing a dress feel like casual dressing to me. Where in the winter I would feel truly dressed up in a dress, in the summertime dresses just make me feel easy, I think of them as my cooler alternative to jeans. Here are some of my favorites, hope you enjoy!...more

Lace is all over the place...

I don't know about you, but I'm seeing lace everywhere. Clothing, accessories and even dog collars are popping up lacy - and I love it! Lace calls to mind romance and femininity (think wedding) - something I very much appreciate in the midst of today's tumultuous world. To be honest, I've been trying to figure out how to pull off wearing something lacy for a long time. I seriously think the last time I had the opportunity to wear anything lacy was on my wedding day (13 years ago).   So it's definitely time to revisit this beautiful fabric....more

Stitch Fix WOWZER!

The excitement and delightfulness found in opening a box of clothing and accessories chosen by my "stylist" is an experience well worth the $20. I plan on reviewing each monthly shipment here on BlogHer, which, by the way, I found on the Stitch Fix website while reading through their tweets.  ...more

7 things they didn't tell you about being a fashion blogger on http://bit.ly/1RGQNtS

 As I sat on my bed soothing my six month old niece to sleep, I started thinking about my journey as a fashion blogger. I have read countless articles on “How to Get More Traffic To Your Blog“, or How to increase your page views”and they all pretty much say the same thing. Yet, I never really felt like they helped me. Am I alone here?...more

Keeping Colors Close...

Keeping colors together always makes me feel well dressed. I find that I feel most coordinated when I can tie the color in my top together with that of the shoes I'm wearing! It truly makes for a polished, put together look - even when I'm dressing down. Here's my example:...more

Who Says Jeans & a Tee Shirt Don't Look Good?

So I keep saying I love comfort as much as I love fashion. The fact is, it's totally possible to go (almost) anywhere in jeans and a tee shirt while looking chic. Or at least while looking great. Super dark denim really helps to make a jeans outfit look elegant. So does color matching - or - as I keep pointing out- keeping it tonal. Even though a  jeans outfit can look dressed up, I have to admit it's all about the accessories when it comes to completing the look. A pretty pair of shoes and a nice bag can do wonders when it comes to pulling together a casual outfit....more

Getting Out Alive

Donna Jackson, aka Mama-Donna, is thankful to have gotten out alive. Yes, Donna allowed things to happen to her that she never dreamed before going on the show, Get Out Alive with Bear Grylls. The show was a survival reality show that ran in 2013. Nicknamed Mama-Donna on the show, she is a gorgeous, 53-year-old model who braved the wilds of New Zealand with her daughter, Canden for weeks without makeup!...more
