Happy Monday all! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!
As you know, Spring weather can be so finicky! One day it’s 70+ degrees and the next temps are below average. When the weather is that unpredictable (especially early Spring), a trench coat becomes my go to for when I head out. It’s perfect for mild/chilly weather that isnt too warm or light for the elements. I dont have to tell you that a trench coat is timeless. It goes with nearly everything in your closet. It can be dressed up or down depending where youre going. For me a trench coat is a must have in every woman’s wardrobe.

If you’re in the market for a trench, here are some favorites!
I think it’s safe to say that white shoes can very polarizing…you either love or hate them. I’ve been on the fence about white shoes for years. Lately white heels have made a fashionable comeback which has renewed my interest in them. So when I found these cute Marc Fisher kitten heels marked down from $69 to $40 at Macy’s I had to scoop them up!
Blazer: Lane Bryant (here)
Cropped Pants: Talbots Woman (here)
Shirt: Lane Bryant (very old)
Shoes: Marc Fisher (bought the last pair in the store & couldn’t find them online…SORRY!!!)
So if you are looking to add a white pair to your Spring/Summer wardrobe, below are a few of my favorites!
First I want to thank everyone who submitted suggestions in my last post. I meant so much to see how many people have taken interest in my blog. So again… thank you!
Finding the right skirt for your body can be tricky. For me over the knee skirts don’t work because of my shelf booty. After having people tell me that they could see my Spanx from behind, I had to give them up. So when the midi length trend ushered in a few of years ago, I quickly jumped on it. I had finally found a skirt length that worked for my body. Midi skirts are a classic wardrobe staple and is perfect for someone who doesn’t like short skirts but still wants to show some leg (ME!). They are flattering on women of all sizes and ages. Now that the midi is here to stay, you can find them in a variety of colors and prints. I like dressing up my midi’s with a blouse and dressing them down with a t-shirt and denim jacket. Next time you wear your skirt, pair it with a cool sneaker or a peep toe pump for some variety. If you are a little on the short side, a midi might be too long but try one anyway. You can always have it hemmed to the length you desire. Remember, fashion “rules” are meant to be broken. Wear what feels good to YOU!
Today is my 42nd birthday and I’m happy that while it’s still very cold outside, the sun is shining bright on my special day. To celebrate my 42nd year of life, I treated myself to something I’ve been wanting for years…A TRIP TO PARIS! I can’t tell you how excited I am about my upcoming trip! I think I’ll probably faint when I get to the top of the Eiffel Tower (from either excitement or from my fear of heights! LOL)! Trust me I will be taking a gazillion pictures and will post them when I get back.
Have a wonderful day!

One of my goals this year was to meet and connect with my readers in person. I envisioned having brunch with you ladies (and some gents) laughing and having fun. Last month, I met lovely event planner Erika from Your Chic Is Showing and shared with her my idea. Erika has graciously put together a brunch meet and greet for me! Yay!
The meet and greet is on Sunday, October 27th at 12pm at Smoking Betty’s here in Philadelphia. Seating is limited so RSVP here before October 23rd! I’m SO excited to meet everyone. Your continuous support and love means so much to me.
I hope to see you at my brunch meet and greet on October 27th!
I hope everyone is enjoying the three day holiday weekend so far. I’ve been spending this holiday enjoying not doing one darn thing! To me, lazy weekends are the best!
Now that Summer is pretty much over (even the temperature is changing tomorrow), I thought it be cool to pick my favorite outfits of the season. This Summer I was more open to trying to new color combinations than I was last year. I’ve decided that no matter the season I will always add color to my outfit. I will be color blocking to the day I die! LOL
What are some of your favorite outfits from this Summer?
Have a wonderful day!
Simply Be peplum dress
H&M animal print top & SWAK maxi skirt
sleeveless INC denim shirt & Gap floral maxi dress
Since Fall is less than a month away (YAY!), Ive been starting to think of the transitional pieces in my closet. For me a button up shirt is one of the best transitional pieces I own. They can be worn alone with the sleeves rolled up or layered under jackets and sweaters. As with any new season a bunch of trends have popped up. Plaid has been crowned one of the seasons newest and I’m excited to try it. Since I’m new to plaid I kept it simple and went with a button down shirt. Keeping with my love of colors, I picked a plaid combo with colors I love. So heres my take on plaid for now and later!
What are some transitional pieces in your wardrobe?
