My Thoughts

Fall Fashion Trend #3…

The third trend for fall is MILITARY

I still remember it from the 1990’s grunge era.

So, I’m on the fence.

Fall trend #2…

Editors from various sources have predicted several different trends for this fall season, I’ve already highlighted my version of leopard print, so next up is…

Rich Tones, those deep saturated shades that make your heart happy.

 

p.s. thanks for all the great comments/advice re. my last post, I needed that kick in the pants. And you are all right…keep true to myself and have fun, because that’s why I started this adventure in the first place!! Love you all!

Look of the Week

Look of the week ~ Katherine Heigl

This week’s look is one that is more “inspired by” Katherine H. (LOVE her name by the way…). I thought that since fall is coming on, and in a heck of a hurry, I’d make this look a little warmer…

This week, in honor of the fact that I got to go on an actual vacation (WITH my HUSBAND!!!), I decided to show a theme for the Look of the Week as opposed to one celebrity….

The Maxi Dress!!

 

 

 

 

 This dress just screams summer and works for just about all body types…including pregnant! Here are a few that would look fab with your favorite sunglasses and sandals!

Summer wardrobe…

Hand-Crocheted Dress - Blue Label - RalphLauren.com

Summer has arrived and with it, the 30+ degree temps and the need for a cool wardrobe!! This makes me happy, 1- because I love the heat and 2- because it’s time to reassess my wardrobe for summer.

A new wardrobe season is a great time to look at your clothes and really evaluate them. Do they still fit? Are they still in style? What do you love and what did you wear only once last season?

My closet is as pared down as it gets. I feel no regrets or hesitations about giving clothes away to charity that I don’t wear. If it didn’t make it out of my closet last season more than once, chances are pretty good, it won’t again this year.

My method of assessing my wardrobe is fairly simple. First I dig all my summer clothes out from storage and as I pull it from the bins, sort it into piles, Love, Hate or Maybe. This is helpful right off the bat as the “hate” pile is immediately put into the donation bags, I don’t even bother trying them on. Then the “maybe” pile is attacked, does it fit and is it still in style. Having babies has made this entertaining, as I have been a range of sizes over the last 3 summers. Not pregnant, just post-baby and pregnant, makes for an interesting assortment of clothes!! And then I approach the “like” pile, if it fits and I think it will work, it’s put in the closet and added to the list. The list is my attempt at organizing my life. I make note of everything I have that will work this summer and use it when determining what I still need.

What comes next is my favourite part! I have a notebook that is full of clothing and style ideas, I’ve written about it before…it’s FABULOUS!!! As I browse through my notebook, I make a list of what I need to pull these looks together.  I might already have the white tee and statement necklace, all I need is a pair of cute safari inspired shorts and I’ve got my look!

Love…
