Memorial Day Weekend- Cemetery Service

I am so thankful to all the veterans who are there for us to honor on Memorial Day.  Freedom doesn’t come free, unfortunately.  And these men and women have served our country with honor and sacrifice for you and I and the rest of this country.
Remember today to thank a veteran and most of all, teach your children what their sacrifices mean.  If we don’t learn from history, we are bound to repeat it.

Soccer/Track/Golf/Tennis Meet

If you’ve got kids, there seems to always be a reason to be standing outside in the brisk spring air freezing.  Usually it involves some sort of sport- be it soccer, track, golf or tennis.  And I’m sure I’m leaving something out.
The temptation is to bury yourself in a blanket and hide in the car.  And if it is below 40, I can’t say I wouldn’t be right there with you. But if you can manage the cold, bundle up in a raincoat that’ll keep out the moisture and a bright hoodie that’ll cheer you up.  Stay with the action in your tennies and carry your goodies in a big old tote.  Colorful mittens and a fun hat will keep out the cold and lessen the pain of your circumstances!
Go team!

Spring Break- Islands In the Stream

I’m referring here to the song, not the novel because this outfit is all about romance.  As is the song. This is your date night outfit.  If you get a chance to have a night alone with the Mr., wear a simple maxi dress in jersey so it can be packed easily.  Throw on some leopard heels and some stackable bracelets and celebrate “starting and ending as one, in love forever.”

Spring Break- Sweet Ride

I hope you get a chance to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather, wherever you go.  I’m hankering for a bike ride myself right about now, but with the pile of snow we’re due, that ain’t gonna happen.
So I’ll fantasize about doing it over spring break, maybe with the kiddos.  Maybe just with the hubby, you know, picnic style.
Wear something casual but with a little kick- like these printed shorts.
I ask you, how cute is that mint bike?!

Christmas Concert

Do you have a concert to attend this holiday season?  Are you lucky enough to have tickets to the Nutcracker?  Or maybe The Christmas Carol?
Make a night of it and wear something snazzy.  With this look, more is more.  Play up the details with some sparkle on your ears, toes and in your hands.  But keep the makeup and hair simple.  There’s a lot going on here!
Most importantly, soak up the culture!
“Ghost of the Future,” he exclaimed, “I fear you more than any spectre I have seen. But as I know your purpose is to do me good, and as I hope to live to be another man from what I was, I am prepared to bear you company, and do it with a thankful heart. Will you not speak to me?”
-Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Fall Updates- Vests

My self-proclaimed trend for the fall makes a wonderful addition to your wardrobe when you don’t know if you’ll be sweating or getting the chills- the vest.  Throw it on over a printed tee and some work trousers.  Then add a few feminine touches to balance the menswear.  Think Meg Ryan, When A Man Loves A Woman, only minus the clunky boots and Andy Garcia.

New York State of Mind

I’ve never been there but I think it would be fun to visit New York.  And while I know I’d be dressed for some site seeing, I’d also want to wear something fabulous out at night.  Today black and white just feels right.  Maybe it’s this New York state of mind?

Girl Outing

In these oh so hot days, it can be hard to figure out what to wear that looks sophisticated but won’t make you melt.  For those outings that involve your girlpack, dress the part in a sweet feminine top and some lacy shorts.  Don’t forget the metallic accessories!
Have a good time!
