Summer Style- From Polyvore to Real Life #21

This look was more fun in real life.  Finding the exact same shades wasn’t easy since I couldn’t find the exact same plaid shorts.  But the concept is the same.  I paired them with a simple tank and a loose vest, a belt with a flower and beaded earrings.
Note to self:  must apply more self-tanner!

Stay at Home Spring Break- Pool Party

We are all dreaming of laying by the pool in the hot sun right now.  And so are the kiddos.  Today, let’s try and give them a taste of that summer fun.  Call your local hotel with a pool or perhaps a YMCA and find out how much it would set you back to bring a group of kids to swim for a few hours.  Hopefully you can find something in your area that lets you slap on a suit before the “season” and remind yourself to cut back on the sugar!
When packing don’t forget your waterproof mascara, a coverup that makes being in that suit less terrifying and a big tote for all those wet suits!  Make a splash!

What Are You Missing?

If any of the following articles of clothing are missing from your closet, you better plan a shopping trip.
#5- A wrap dress- There is no earth-shattering news here.  It isn’t the latest trend.  But this little workhorse is the most versatile dress you’ll find.  It can go from work to a wedding to a piano recital to a date.  That’s pretty impressive.  If you don’t have one, get one!
#4- A striped cardigan- This menswear inspired piece of clothing might make you think Mr. Rogers just met Where’s Waldo.  But it looks great paired with basics.  Wear it the way you would your striped tee.
#3- Denim jacket-  Try not to be reminded of 1983 but the denim jacket is a great coverup for all sorts of outfits.  I’d still avoid the denim on denim look but that’s just me…
#2- Riding boots- Easily the workhorse of boots (pun intended), these babies are the one boot every woman should own,.
#1- Ankle jeans- A hot, hot trend this season, they will wake up your wardrobe and show off all those beautiful shoes you have in your closet.  A bonus, a pair in mustard, another hot color for fall.
