Chic Oversized Clutches

Love, love oversized clutches. They are an absolute must-have accessory.  Pick one that suits your mood or style. I have one of each - Neutral, Exotic, Color Blocked and Bright and still can't have enough. Most of these chic carry-alls can fit a wallet, cell phone, lipstick, keys (a diaper and wipes, if necessary too!)

Wide Leg Pants

Give your jeans a rest this summer and try this season's trend of wide leg pants! Try a pair in a graphic print in neutral colors like this pair from Fraiche. Wear it with a bright top, flats and fun jewelry for the day or then spice it up at night with metallic accessories and a sexy cropped metallic top. With wide leg pants, it's important to wear either a fitted top or one that is tucked in to give the illusion of curves otherwise, it might look like you are wearing a bag!

Beautiful Sunglasses – Summer 2013

After three weeks of vacation, I am back loaded with tons to write about.  Summer time to me just means a new pair of cool sunglasses, an updated skincare routine, a fresh summer scent and of course a spanking new wardrobe so look out for some posts on all those topics! Lets start with sunglasses. I do have a  love affair with sunglasses.....they complete any outfit, define your style instantly, protect those beautiful eyes and are the ultimate accessory!

Fashion faux pas!

Even lifestyle bloggers can have a fashion faux-pas day! Add it to my top ten, please. I went for my daughter's 2nd grade field trip to a farm dressed like I was out to a girl's luncheon!
My outfit for the farm!
While most parents were dressed for the occasion in hiking clothes and shoes, I came dressed in Hudson's bootcut jeans, Splendid Kimono-style top, a nice necklace and my Burberry flats! To my defense, I clearly missed the dress code in the materials sent to the parents and I had no idea what the field trip was going to be about! Our day comprised of gardening, a two hour nature hike, picnic by a stream and last but not least visiting the farm animals. I clearly was not dressed for THE OCCASION but my take away.. you can look stylish anywhere, anytime....even on a farm! Oh well.... you live and learn. I have no blisters and I came back in one piece  - here's a quick snapshot of my feet to prove it! Do share if you have had a fashion faux pas day....will make me feel a tad bit better!
