Hello friends!I typically have a Midlife topic or Inspirational post on Fridays, but I wanted to post this  while still on vacation . We took these photos a few weeks ago when it was still warm, in the 80s in NC, so I thought I would just share them with you today, and talk about shopping your closet.Its funny. I have more Fall and Winter clothes than I do Summer/Spring clothes, even though I have been living here in NC for 15 years. I think its because I just love Fall fabrics and layering, along with beautiful jackets, motos, and cozy sweaters. I have added some new pieces to my Fall wardrobe, but also enjoy shopping my closet, and reaching for that tweed jacket I have not seen in a year. Today, I styled my neutral snake skin dress I I received from Natalie Attired, a box service that I collaborated with a few years ago.

Oh Soft Surroundings, you hit this one out of the park for me. Flowy fabric, button down detail, dark florals in gorgeous rich fall colors. Yes, Yes and Yes! I have been wanting to add some dark florals in a maxi or midi style for Fall, so when I saw this on the front cover of the pre-Fall catalogue and on the website, I fell head over heels!  This dress, the Anais Maxi dress can be styled in more ways that one, and you will see me style it again in colder weather. This dress was gifted to me by Soft Surroundings.

Good Morning!Happy Memorial Day! I hope you are enjoying the day with your family. Maybe a cookout or just hanging out, and perhaps a jump in the pool. Our pool opened May 1st here, but I know many open on Memorial Day, making the official start of summer. I also listed some SALES going on now for Memorial Day. These are brands or stores in which i shop, and there are some good deals!I know not all ladies like to wear shorts in the warmer weather. I enjoy wearing them from time to time , and will show some styles on the blog, but as an alternative, how about a denim skirt? I shared this item as one of the 10 Spring Staples for Your Closet, and do enjoy wearing mine throughout the Spring and Summer months.  Basically, a cooler version of jeans. I just can't wear jeans in the summer.. the thought of the denim sticking to my legs does not appeal to me. So, I choose dresses, shorts, skirts- included this A-line button down denim skirt I bought last summer at Loft.

 Happy Friday! I have always been a "bag" girl. I love beautiful, high quality bags and believe that a bag can add such interest to an outfit, due to color, shape and texture. I do carry mostly designer bags, but many of the bags are quite reasonable, as I have found several of mine on Ebay and another resale site Bonanza. I will do a post in the future about my Spring bags, but wanted to talk about a current bag obsession and trend-The Circle Bag. With a vintage vibe, this fun bag shape is showing up everywhere from the runway to stores.

Happy Tuesday friends!It is finally getting a bit warmer here in NC. with balmy temperatures in the 50s! I am basically a cold weather "wimp', even though I grew up in Pittsburgh. I also used to teach "LifeSports" at a private school here, and just dreaded the winter, as the school didn't have a gym... the outdoors were the gym, and I would dread having to teach flag football to 40 kids in the cold. If you are starting to get in that "Spring frame of mind" check out yesterday's post, as I styled a tunic/lace dress from Joseph Ribkoff.  Today, howecer, I  am bundled up  with my Chicos finge leopard wrap, a surprise gift they sent to me before Christmas.
