SWL- Class Reunion

Lloyd had a great idea today for a class reunion look- leather pants.  Why leather?  Because it cinches you in like a girdle.  I know you are having a Ross Geller moment right now, worried you’d be stuck in the bathroom applying powder and lotions.  But pair it with a nice loose, bright blouse, some sky high heels and a pair of dangley conversation starter earrings and there’ll be no need for the sweaty panic.
Only a svelte body and irresistible charm.  Perfect.

Summer Style- From Polyvore to Real Life #1

I’d love to say I did something fabulous today but I think I did something important none-the-less, I babysit kiddos.  And I am so lucky to get to spend my day with little ones who have sticky hands and messes in every room and pronounce things without their “r’s”.
What do you wear when you don’t really care what you look like?  Okay maybe sweats was your answer.  I confess it probably would be mine.  But I did have to leave the house.  So this was the next best thing-

Spring Trends- Sheer & Lace

You are going to start to wonder if anything I’m reporting here is new.  But we’ll just say these trends are new…again?
Anything sheer or lace is big for spring.  And some of you are wondering, did it ever go out of style?  No.  And lace was big for fall.  So carry those pieces on into spring!
Just remember to keep yourself covered up.  These looks are meant to be subtle!

A Week of Thanks- Stocking Up on Supplies

Time to shop!  You need everything from turkey to the pumpkin pie and when you’re busy stocking up, it can be easy to throw on yoga pants.  But…here’s an outfit that is just as easy, just as comfy and requires just a little more thought.
A sweater and jeans combo isn’t a tough one.  Just top off with a scarf that complements the color of the sweater, throw on some cute ankle boots and tie it all together in your tote!
Now if only stuffing the turkey was this easy…

Fall Updates- Scarf

There are a few easy pieces you can rely on during this transitional weather to take your summer pieces into fall. I mentioned this in a previous post and, this week, I’ll show a few looks and how to work those pieces in.
For starters, let’s take the scarf.  Your tank top can be worn into cooler weather with the addition of this little accessory.  If you’re feeling brave, pair a printed scarf with a printed tank to enhance the outfit’s visual interest.
No matter how you wear it, the scarf can take you from summer to fall!

Now take the Mr. out and woo him with your charming wiles.
