Happy Monday, my friends!

I know a lot of us are ready for fall, especially fall fashion, but I have to say that I’m not in that camp yet. I’m holding on to summer for as long as I can. I’m not ready to let go of the carefree days of shorts, tees and flip flops! Knowing that we’ll have more than our fair share of cooler temperatures here in Michigan, I’m enjoying the warm days of summer down to the very last day. Continue reading

Happy Monday, my friends!

There was not an idle moment this past weekend. It was one of those non-stop on-the-go kind of weekends starting with lunch with girlfriends, a family birthday celebration, a church picnic and then dinner with friends. Although I was exhausted by the end, I’m not complaining. This is what life is all about, isn’t it?

This outfit, that I wore to a casual dinner with some friends, is a mixture of old and new items. I was so happy that I was able to pair something old with something new and make them look like they naturally go together. Continue reading

Happy Monday, my dear friends!

I’m sure you all agree that this summer is flying by. Most of me doesn’t want the summer to end, but there is a small part of me that longs for a more structured schedule that comes with the school season so that I can have a little more time to myself and this blog. I’m sure my wish will become reality before I know it. And then I’ll long for summer again, the grass is always greener…

One of the things I can rely on every season is this classic color palette. Black, white and olive have always been favorites of mine no matter which season I’m in. Continue reading

Happy Monday, my friends!

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

Outfit Highlight: Jeans and Tee

Happy Monday, friends!

I’m keeping it simple both in my post and outfit today. My daughter made her debut in a musical with a local theater group and I got to be a stage mom for the weekend. It was tiring, to say the least, but just the fact that my daughter had the best time being part of the ensemble makes me happy and all worth it.

White jeans and a tee has been my go-to summer uniform. This look has been on repeat for a while now with slight variations via the accessories. I don’t typically mix black with pale pastel colors but I think that in this case the black accessories anchor the look. I love this relaxed tee from J.Crew with the silky sleeves and back. It feels great against the skin and the boxy cut is perfect for summer. Continue reading

Happy Monday, my friends!

Hope your 4th of July weekend was filled with family fun and yummy food. Mine was pretty laid back. After a busy week, all I wanted to do was take it easy and just chill with my family. I think that’s what summertime is all about.

I think that natural carefree attitude translates into summer fashion as well. When it comes to summer, I almost always opt for natural fibers like cotton, linen, canvas, straw, etc. Continue reading

Happy Monday, my friends!

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

5 Sneakers Trends to Try This Summer

spring fashion trends, sneakers, sporty chic

Who’s excited about the current surge of sporty chic styles in the fashion world? I, for one, am beyond ecstatic. The sporty chic trend got its debut in the realm of men’s fashion about 3 years ago when we started to see tailored suits paired with statement sneakers popping up among celebrities and the fashion savvy crowd. I thought it was a cool trend and instantly took a liking to it but somehow, women’s fashion didn’t catch up to it right away. Continue reading
