Athleticwear-Hot Day

I’m not going to lie, every time I leave the house in exercise clothes, I feel like I’m leaving in my pajamas. I just feel like I’m half dressed!

This fall, I am helping coach my daughter’s soccer team and I am dressed far more often in athletic clothes than I normally am and I find myself out of my comfort zone. I know that for most of you, this IS your comfort zone!

It has me reevaluating what I have in my closet to coach in.

Here is one outfit that I’ve put together for coaching gear:

Transition to Fall- Off the Shoulder Top

The off the shoulder or cold shoulder look isn’t going anywhere. Which is good news for those of us with some in the closet. And these lace up flats are EVERYWHERE! Cute and functional.

I hope there was a look for you in this transitional collection!

Transition to Fall- Black Blazer

Transition to Fall- Black Blazer

Don’t worry about casual Friday, I’ve got a great outfit for you.  Wear your jeans and top them with a great black blazer.  And to make it a perfect fall outfit, top the blazer with a statement blanket scarf.  Don’t forget some sophisticated jewelry and a very “it” bag right now, the bucket bag.   Throw in a little fringe bootie just for sass.  Great for work!

Transition to Fall- Denim Shorts

Transition to Fall- Denim ShortsEveryone has a pair of denim shorts. Mine just happen to be this distressed. You can wear these long into fall, and here’s an example of how.

I pair them with a silk tank and topped with a long kimono. Don’t be afraid of the long hem! It doesn’t matter if it is longer than your shorts. Also, ditch the sandals to make this less summery and pair them with booties. Really…pair everything with booties! I love shorts and skirts with booties!

When in doubt, go with the bootie!

Transition to Fall- White Dress

It’s that time of year again, when no one has any idea what to wear!  Is it going to feel like August today or October?  No one knows!
I have a few tips for you to help with the transition from summer to fall.Transition to Fall- White Dress

Here I’ve taken a very summery dress (nothing gets more summery than a white dress) and paired it with a simple layer- a denim shirt.  You could do a jacket but I like the way the shirt is a little lighter and hopefully it’s also long and is close to the hemline of the dress.  This is also a perfect season for peeptoe booties (because when else do they make sense).  Wear them before the snow flies!  Shoot, I just said the “S” word, sorry!

One thing I can’t live without lately is my baseball cap.  It sure comes in handy for second (or third!) day hair.  I like this outfit with a simple little saddle bag.  Something that reminds me a little of my very first purse in junior high….when it wasn’t cool yet to have a purse.  Does anyone else remember that?

Hopefully this is an outfit you can wear if it’s 80 or 60!

Tooting My Horn

I’m not one to normally toot my own horn, but today I’ve hit a milestone.

I am officially in the 1K club, that is 1,000 followers on Pinterest. No, I don’t have a huge following on Facebook and my Instagram followers are growing, but I do get some love from Pinterest. 

Maybe that’s a subtle way to say I spend way too much time there?

Yea me!

Happy Birthday

To me! 

I hope you are enjoying your 4th of July weekend! July is one of my favorite months of the year. I refuse to be in the camp of people who think the summer is over after the 4th. For me, July is just the beginning of summer! Baseball and swim lessons are over and that means July is the month of vacations, camps and relaxing! 

Thank you for your patience as I spend time with my kids and try to keep my head above water with work. (You know, the writing that pays.)

I promise to keep this going but for the summer, it’ll be sporadic at best.  You can still find me on the Real Moms of Eastern Iowa blog (www.unitypoint.org) every week.

And for those of you that are curious, housework continues on our fixer upper. I will be posting updates soon.

Meanwhile,  enjoy your summer. Stay stylish!
