Get your animal print on

You know, it’s time for you to break out a little.  Be a little nuts.   Get your animal print on. Wear some zebra, python, leopard, giraffe, lemur.

Seriously though, there’s something a little sexy and sophisticated about animal print, as long as you do it right.  This week on Babycenter I wrote a post called 7 sexy ways to rock animal print and I want you to…

How do YOU wear white?

how do YOU wear white?

A few weeks ago I wore an all white outfit for an entire day and at least one piece of white clothing the following two days in an effort to see if I could keep myself clean for 72 hours.  What I realized when I accepted this challenge* is that #1 I don’t have much white in my closet, and #2 I stopped wearing white of any sort around the time my daughter was born almost 13 years ago.

A little something to wear this summer

I found a little something to wear this summer, a little something pretty and light, a tiny bit flirty and a whole lotta sexy.  Wear this to lunch with the girls or lazy flea market shopping on a Saturday.  Throw on some candy red lipstick for some fox factor and throw your shoulders back, because you’re sexy and you know it. platform shoes by petitelefant featuring platform shoes

William Riera

All dressed up with nowhere to go! Not yet, anyway.  I spent yesterday pulling weeds and chasing little monsters around the neighborhood and probably didn’t shave my legs or comb my hair, but then a package from William Riera arrived. I forgot about the dirt under my nails, tore open the package and tried on the dress immediately. Guess what?  I actually do love it! For starters, it’s soft and comfortable. For finishers, it’s forgiving, ahem. And in between, there are flirty ruffles to love. Finally,…

Some spring fashion for you

Today is the first day of spring. Finally.  In honor of the changing season I put together an outfit I’m dreaming about, some spring fashion for you.  And, I’ll be honest, a little bit for me. There might be snow on the ground outside but I’m having happy warm thoughts thinking about sunny days ahead.  Days with new sunglasses, fancy lady hats, perfectly breezy skirts and a favorite cold drink.     I really can’t get this maxi skirt out…

Appropriate bridesmaid wedding fashion

My dear friend Helen Jane asked me some wedding fashion questions today, and I couldn’t help her without going full on inspiration board. It’s just the way my brain works – I’m so so super visual. Anyway, Helen Jane’s questions basically surrounded the topic of what constitutes appropriate bridesmaid wedding fashion.  It’s tricky.  You get invited to a friend’s wedding and all of a sudden there are 10 events over the course of the weekend, and what on earth are…
