 Morning FriendsLet me first say, I am happy to be on-line and my blog tech issues behind me! Sometimes you don't know what you are missing until it's gone!I am in Harleysville, PA visiting relatives and spending some time . My hubby and I went to my nephew's Eagle Scout Ceremony and enjoyed seeing the kid's projects and talking to my in-laws. We will be back to NC later in the week. I think I am getting to old for these long car rides, as I hear myself saying out loud, my hips, my glutes! ... Fortunately we make a pit stop at my brothers in Springfield, VA and then the next day we make our way to PA. It is still 13 hours of driving.I have been showing some transitional looks with Fall trends and colors, but I get a tad impatient, and decided I would share a few of my Fall purchases even if it was warm outside. There is finally a bit of a chill. Mother Nature needs to wake up! Fall is here, officially!   So, without further adieu, I bought this and only this moto jacket at the Norstrom Sale  this year., I loved the burgundy suede color and knew it would go with so much in my closet.. I am showing several looks this week with leopard, as I just love this fun neutral that works with everything!

IMG_8431Hello LadiesI don't know about you, but I love to iron. Give me a big stack of clothes and let me do my thing! I'm kidding, Im kidding! I am sure there might be a few ladies that do enjoy it, perhaps it is relaxing for some, like taking a bubble bath. However. I like to decide what I am wearing, get dressed and go! I like to feel like I have getting ready down to a bit of a science. So, when Foxcroft NY, contacted me about collaborating , I knew after seeing the Taylor Non-Iron Shirt Dress, that would be my choice, and what women could use in their closet. As through my experience, most busy women want less hassle when getting ready in the morning. So comfortable, the shirt dress is one of my favorites for easy dressing!IMG_8436In addition to the appeal of this iron-free shirt dress, was the color (Serenity)as one of the Pantone's Colors of the Year. I initially chose the pink version, however it was not available until October. No worries, as  I decided then, to combine the colors of the year (  Rose Quartz:) and ( Serentiy) for this put together look. I took out my pink rose scarf, added my vintage pale pink circular vintage brooch and also added pink champagne tones with my Rockport pretty floral pointed flats.  I wanted to combine the best of both worlds! For added texture, my  faux crocidile Brahmin Bag would do the trick. . Yes, I would be happy with blue, as my recent  linen dress purchase  is long, and a darker shade, so there was enough of a difference to "say yes to the dress!" I needed to add more blue into my wardrobe, so this would be a great piece.

IMG_6978Hello LadiesI hope you all had a great weekend and Happy Easter. .We went to a Vineyard, took the puppies and had a good time. There are a few that allow dogs, and we try and take advantage when it is nice outside. Service was great, as was a new grape, Chambourcin, a dry red varietal that is becoming more popular here. All was well, except for a few overly intoxicated women wanted to dog-nap my puppy Truffles. That is another story for another time. Easter made me think of all of the traditions in our family; Mass, Blessing the Baskets, getting together and I think hunting for Easter Baskets until we were about 25. Ha.  Easter also reminds me of Spring, and today I am reviewing an talking about my dress from Coldwater Creek. When Coldwater Creek approached me about reviewing an item on their site, I was excited as it was a familiar shop and I knew they had some lovely clothes. I was to choose two items from their site and they would send one. I initially chose this lilac blazer with all its embroidered style I thought would look wonderful adding a pretty pastel to white, a gorgeous spring shade to a dress , plenty of options. However, since this was unavailable, I chose to no surprise, a dress! Looking at their on-line site I fancied several dresses, such as the  Table for Two  dress, accentuating the waist and a staple piece. I also liked the printed Lavender Fields dress that was longer which I thought would look smashing for a wedding or just out for an  afternoon lunch.  However, the Floral Mesh Knit Dress caught my eye, in a periwinkle or "serenity' color, I liked the vertical lines in the style of the dress, adding length and giving a lean look to the wearer. The mesh material made the dress very comfortable to wear and also light for warm weather. The pattern was subtle, tiny flowers with stems made the dress look delicate as does the length and flow of the dress. The fit was quite good, if not a little loose, and I am wearing   an XS. I would also recommend a heel, albeit small or higher to give the legs length, continuing with the vertical line. Flats may be fine, but it may also look to shorten the legs as the dress comes inches past my knee. ( But I am 5 foot 9)  I also HAD to share my new fancy footwear with you too! I loved the vintage look to these B.A.I.T shoes, as I love a pretty t-strap and the lavender color caught my attention for spring. Since they have a tiny wedge, they are  do-able for me and fun to wear. Perhaps I will wear this outfit to my next Lindy Hop! :)
