 MorningWell, a great time was had at the Journey/Def Leppard concert! I wrote about it and will feature what i wore and more about the concert in my post for Turning Heads Tuesday tomorrow. It was one of the most fun evenings I have had in awhile! So amazing! I had so much fun, I danced most of the night and needed Sunday to recoup! :-)Today I am "shopping my closet". As tempting as it is, especially as a fashion blogger to buy what's new, I have some "older" favorites in my closet, waiting to be worn.Its been awhile on the blog that I wore a skirt, other than my jean skirt. i enjoy a pretty skirt, but I am more apt to wear dresses in the summer. I did decide however, to pair this yellow mesh, flouncy top with my pink and chartreuse, yellow pencil skirt from Ann Taylor.

 IMG_7406IMG_7416Hello Ladies.I hope everyone had a Happy Mother's Day. I myself, am just mom to 2 little fur babies who are a great joy to me and make me smile everyday. My mom just recently spent about 3 weeks with us and we had a great time. Lots of talking, eating and drinking.  By now, if you read the blog, you know one of my favorite past times is going to Vineyards. I enjoy tasting different wines and as the weather gets warmer sitting outside on the wicker couches and sipping Sangria. So, yes, we were at another Vineyard. I truly am snot a snob about anything except coffee, tea and wine. Ha :-) It has rained nearly every day this past week, with severe thunderstorms which make my girl want to hide in the closet. So, today was one of those " I have to take advantage of it" Spring Days, at 80 degrees and sunny. I certainly have other hobbies ( music) but this is a favorite when the weather is just right. Soon it will be Charlotte POPS Symphony Season, yet another place to sit and enjoy the atmosphere.Today I am going to share a look that you may say.. Did I read "Corset-like" in the title, was that right? Well, when I went to NYFW last fall, and attended the Betsey Johnson show, I saw a look and idea that I thought may be fun to replicate. Perhaps it isn't for everyone, but I do like to experiment from time to time. Corsets were worn over blouses with skirts and wide leg pants. I thought the look rocked, so this is a bit more "conservative" as the top isn't a corset in terms of lingerie, but a sleeveless corset-like  top that I wear in the summer as is. So, when the idea came to me, I thought lets take a white  eyelet pencil skirt for texture a more proper white button down, and add the  pink floral with the thin ribbon detailed top, ) and pointed pink sling back flats for a fun and romantic style. Side note: caught in drizzle and wind... tough on one's hair! I added my lilac Coach bag for additional spring color.

IMG_6799IMG_6795Hello LadiesWelcome to another #Turningheadstuesday!   I hope everyone had a nice weekendI know it is March and we are getting antsy for Spring. I , however, just found this vintage  tweed jacket and didn't want to wait until next year to share it. So, I promise a spring look for next week. Today I am sharing a few tips on wearing Vintage without looking like you went back in a time machine. I do tell my husband from time to time that I would love to travel back to a different era. Not stay there forever, but just experience the time, clothes, people.music . If you are watching the Stephen King book turned tv show 11/22/16 the character has traveled back in time to try and prevent a historical event from happening, having to know the era, the clothes, cars, and events pertaining to that day.

Hello LadiesHappy St Patrick's Day! I hope I am lucky in presenting you my first link up. I am calling it Turning Heads Tuesday, and have the button available for you to put on your link up page  to link back or as a widget.Do you know I am Irish? My ancestry that is.  What gave it away? The red locks, green eyes, fair skin? Well, there are some misconceptions to being Irish I must dispell once and for all!
  • I actually do not like beer. As you all know, I am a wine drinker, martini drinker, just not beer.I never acquired a taste for it, and Coors Light in college doesn't count.
  • There is much  more to Irish cooking than boiled potatoes. One of my favorites growing up was Soda bread.
  • There is not pot of gold at the end of a rainbow. I have seen numerous rainbows in my time, and believe me, if there were I would be a very well to do woman!
  • Four leaf clovers have nothing to do with luck! So if you find one, and get lucky, it is merely a coincidence.
I wanted to wear my green to celebrate the day, and my leopard print jacquard skirt which reminded me of 4 leaf clovers ! :-)IMG_6699

leopard swing coatHello LadiesI know this skirt is familiar. A gold straight pencil skirt I wore last week. I wanted to do a remix with other textures and prints. In my closet, I have this perfectly matched monochromatic chunky sweater I wanted to wear to create this look. You are going to have to excuse the hair. It is rainy, humid, and for me, damp hair is about as bad as "bed head". So I just cropped my head out for this set, next time, a hair bun should do the trick!
