Happy Monday all!

I had a lot of  plans for this past weekend but the rain squashed  many of them.  Fortunately I was able to attend the Rittenhouse Spring Festival on Saturday  before the rain began with the ladies of Mahogany Philly (a MeetUp social group I joined a few months ago).  I kept things simple with skinny jeans and flat sandals since we were going to be doing a lot of walking around.  While my weekend was a wash out I still had a good time at the festival.  I checked the forecast for Memorial Day weekend and so far  no rain is predicted!  Woo hoo!!!

How was your weekend?

Have a wonderful day!

Happy Hump Day all!

Here’s a little secret, being home sick for an extended period of time is BORING!  There’s only so much Cooking Channel, DVRed TV shows and pay per view movies I can watch. I bet if you  Google “couch potato”  you’ll  get an image of me!   So today I decided to take action to stop my growing cabin fever. I put on this outfit to get me out of my PJ rut and  went to the post office (which was a feat in itself due to the count that I’m still recuperating) to get some fresh air. I know that doesn’t sound incredibly exciting but it felt great to get out the house  and wear clothes that don’t have elastic in them!

Have a wonderful evening!

Happy Hump Day all!

Okay so is it safe to say Fall is over?  We went from basking in the warm Fall sun to 30-40 degree temps!   I ignored the forecast and still continued to wear my trench coat even though it wasn’t keeping me warm.  Finally after  freezing on the train platform last week, I ended my standoff.  My initial thought was to buy a new coat but then I  started thinking of ways to update my old coat. Adding a brooch instantly came to mind.  Brooches are great way to liven up an old coat.  Colorful and sparkly  ones will definitely make your coat stand out.   Try putting together different brooch shapes and sizes. And don’t be afraid to add more than one brooch either.  As they say “the more the merrier”!

Would you add a brooch to your coat?

Have a great evening!

Happy Hump Day all!

So about two weeks ago, I bought my first pair of printed jeans. At first I was SO scared to buy them because a) I’m 40 b) aren’t printed jeans for young gals? c) my booty! Despite my misgivings, I tried them on anyway and you know the rest of the story! We shouldn’t allow concerns about age and others perceptions to stop us from having fun with fashion. You should have a pair of sexy jeans for date night or hanging with the girls. Printed jeans can be worn as casually as colored ones. Its all about how you style it!

So who is gonna join me and get a pair of printed jeans?!

Have a wonderful evening!

Happy Monday everybody!

I should be relaxing on my day off  but  instead I’m trying to finish up my  “To Do” list from the weekend.  When I usually  run errands  I wear jeans, sneakers and a sweater because its quick and easy.  Today I updated my errand “uniform” because you can be stylish and comfortable while going to the grocery store.  Instead of wearing jeans, I wore red cords for a pop of color. I decided to substitute the sweater with a denim shirt.   I slipped on leopard print flats which are just as comfortable as  my sneakers.  By making these simple changes  my boring errand “uniform” turned  into a cute outfit.

Do you have an errand “uniform”? If so, how would you make it more stylish?

Have a wonderful day!
