Hope everyone had a fun Halloween. How can you not with all that candy, right? The best part is that it wasn’t freezing cold. Temperatures have been surprisingly mild this season and I hear it’s getting up to the low 70s during the week. Yay! The highs and lows that fall weather brings makes it a little tricky getting dressed. I bundle up in the morning but I find myself shedding my layers by early afternoon. Continue reading →
Last week I talked about jewel tones being one of my favorite hues for fall. This week I’m talking about another one of my favorite color palettes, earth tones and neutrals. There is something calming, grounding and timeless about these hues. They are appropriate for any season but they seem especially well suited for fall. Earth tones remind us of the intrinsic beauty of nature and what it offers not only thru colors, but also thru textures, patterns, etc. Continue reading →
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, my favorite part of fall are the colors it brings. The Michigan autumn foliage is beautiful and fall fashion colors are a feast for the eyes as well. The jewel tones of this blouse and clutch are examples of my favorite hues for fall. And thanks to FABRIZIO GIANNI®, I get to wear them early in the season. If this is your first time hearing about FABRIZIO GIANNI®, they’re an American made women’s clothing brand that believes in quality, craftsmanship and enduring style for the empowered woman of today.

I know summer is over when my girls and I start gearing up for school. A new school season means new school supplies, new school gear, new clothes and of course, new shoes! They grow out of their kicks before I can say Jack Robinson. And that’s why I’m so glad to be partnering up with SKECHERS once again to gear up for school in style. SKECHERS is a household name for us so it’s a natural fit. My girls love to pick out a new pair of SKECHERS at the start of every school year and this year is no exception. Continue reading →
We finally reached the high 80s over the weekend. This is what summer is supposed to be like and I am not complaining. The best part of summer is the fact that I get to wear shorts, skirts, as well as skorts, like this one from Zara. I love the gold button detail on this skort. They give a nautical vibe, one of my favorite looks for summer. And I know we love our denim cutoff shorts but what about about a denim cutoff top! The frayed edges on this Zara top adds a relaxed casual feel to this boxy denim shirt. I could seriously wear this outfit every day. Continue reading →
After a long week of chauffering my girls back and forth from camps, including sleep away camp 3 hours away, trying to coordinate and work on several projects at the same time and a bout of some kind of stomach bug, I sure was glad to start a new week. I do apologize for being sporadic on visiting/commenting on your blogs, my friends, but I’m sure you can relate when it comes to being crunched for time and needing sleep.
There was one thing that immediately put a smile on my face this past week. Continue reading →
My girls’ last day of school is tomorrow, which means no more rushed mornings, at least for a while. It also means less alone time for me, which may prove to be a challenge when it comes to blogging. I can’t wait for summer camp to start!
I consider today’s look to be the quintessential fashion blogger’s look. How many times have you seen this combination of a chambray top with a black and white striped skirt and a pop of color via the accessories? But I can totally see why it’s so popular. This ensemble just works. It has all the right ingredients for a great outfit. It’s become a classic iconic look. Continue reading →
