• Blush Cocoon Sweater With Blue Stripe Top

    Happy dance time!  Spring break week.  Whoop, whoop!  I hope to rest, clean house and knock out a few appointments.  I also want to rotate my winter clothes and summer clothes.  My master bedroom closet is smaller and one of my guest bedrooms has two walk-ins so I only keep current season clothing in my smaller one.  Twice a year it’s a big deal to change out sweaters for short sleeves.

Isn’t that the mark of a true fashion lover?  Pulling from the closet to create a completely different outfit…

  • Spring Stripes & Espadrille Wedges

    Today I’m styling stripes in fun colors. I’m definitely feeling the season of spring today.  The sun is out, the temps are in the sixties and we are beginning spring break! This JCP top has sold out in this color combo but is still available in two other colors.  It’s a soft cotton with a little puff in the sleeves. Today is the first time I’ve worn my Franco Sarto Espadrilles.  I love how they look but I’ll have to get used to the ankle strap and the wedge.  It’s been awhile since I’ve worn this style. Fun earrings with a pop of red from Loft.  Large earrings are everywhere…
