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. They specialize in stretch jeans but also offer a variety of other selections from tops to accessories. Continue reading →
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 →
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 →
Hope your week is off to a good start. I wish I could say the same about my photo shoot yesterday. Have you ever had one of those days where the elements just didn’t seem to be working with you? Well, I had such a day yesterday where everything from the wind to the sun just refused to cooperate. I don’t even know how I was able to come up with a few decent photos to share with you.
This is a very special post. I’m so excited to announce the launch of a new boutique by RheaEtCetera.com! Yes, you read it right. You can now visit RheaEtCetera.com to shop for the latest and greatest in skirts and dresses. I have always admired people who pursue their dreams and actually make it happen. So when my friend Rhea asked me to participate in her boutique launch, I was not only ecstatic for her but I was honored to be a part of it. Read more about her journey here.
It was hard to pick out a single item that I wanted to feature because there were so many cute skirts and dresses to choose from but when I saw this Addison Boarding School dress, I knew right away that it was versatile enough that I could wear it for more than one season and more than one occasion.

As a mom of three girls, my hope is for my daughters to grow up to be kind, respectful and compassionate young women. At the same time, I wish for them to be confident, bold and fearless when it comes to pursuing their dreams. As we conclude our family vacation here in Disney World, I am reminded of what Walt Disney once said, “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” I want my daughters to grow up believing they can achieve anything they set their minds to. I want to instill in them the belief that hard work pays off and that determination opens doors. And that if they’re truly passionate about something, they need to go out there and make it happen.
And that’s why I’m so excited to be collaborating with Cinder + Salt to introduce you to their newest collection, which embodies this go-getter attitude. Their #LIKEABOSS collection was inspired by all the female go-getters out there who are empowered to pursue excellence while at the same time striving to find balance between career and personal goals.
