My Style


I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend. Early Saturday morning my husband and I (and dog) packed up the car and headed out east to Orient, NY (which is on the end of the northern tip of Long Island). My in-laws have a beach house out there...and I don't think we've been out there since Memorial Day of last year.

dress- Brooklyn Industries
sandals- Urban Outfitters
sunglasses- Michael Stars


We had fantastic weather out there (upper 70s), which was about 15-20 degrees cooler than the weather here in Pennsylvania. We went on a walk by the beach, ate a ton of seafood, went out to a bar on the dock, and really had a very relaxing weekend. Oh how I needed it!

How was your weekend? Did you do anything fun???

Must Have Color Combos

Make your way onto any red carpet and you will certainly come across this fabulous color combination: white and nude. This is a winning look on anyone! Chic and classy...and always on trend. If I can suggest any look for the spring/summer season I would tell you to make sure you have a little white dress and a pair of nude pumps. This simple look will go far...and last you for many years (while still remaining stylish).

Check out how some of our favorite celebs put this look together---

Rachel Bilson

Carrie Underwood

Lucy Liu

Here are some great items that would look great in anyone's wardrobe...and the price tags will keep your wallet happy.

Apologies...


Hey everyone! No I have not been on vacation. No I haven't been sick. So why the lack of posts? I got a new job recently and have been working many more hours than normal. I have been trying to schedule posts ahead of time...but obviously haven't been doing a great job of that. So I wanted to tell all my readers, I AM SO SORRY that I have become such a bad blogger.  :-(   I am going to do my best to really start scheduling posts ahead of time. Once I start getting into the swing of my new job (and new hours) I think my posts will start being more regular again.

Pick of the Day


One thing I love from Anthropologie is their jewelry. Necklaces are a huge weakness of mine...and their collection of neck wear is top notch! I came across this Pretty Prattle Necklace and it stopped me in my tracks! Don't you just love all the colors? You could literally wear this with just about anything. Dress it up, or dress it down...it is the perfect accessory.

Happy Mother's Day Mom!

As you all know, today is Mother's Day. I wanted to take a moment and say HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to my mom. I thought it would be fun to include some pictures of us over the years. As I was looking for photos of us together I realized it was almost impossible! She likes to hide behind the camera...or just hide from the camera all together. Here are a few photos with myself with my camera-shy mother, Judy.


Happy Mother's Day to my mom, and to all the moms out there. I hope you all have a terrific day!

Cover Story

What I love about fashion and trends is that around the world they are all different. What one country finds fashionable, might not be in style half way around the world. Since I don't have a ton of money to go jetsetting all over the world, I find that magazines give us a great insight on what is trendy and stylish around the globe. I thought I'd share some of Vogue's covers for May with my readers---

Australia

India

Japan

USA

UK

I think my favorite cover of the bunch is has to be India. Which is your favorite???

My Style

The other day I had to stop by Target for a few things, and this adorable top caught my eye. It came in so many great colors...but I had to go with my most favorite color in the world, pink. When I came home I tried it on and showed it to my husband, who told me that it looked nice but that I looked like a hippie. Yeah, it is a little more bohemian that most of my wardrobe...but I absoloutely love it! Perfect for spring, summer, and CINCO DE MAYO!


Are you doing anything fun for Cinco de Mayo? Our apartment complex is having a little party this evening. So I'll be there!


top- Xhilaration available at Target
jeans- H&M
ballet flats- Ecote available at Urban Outfitters
bracelets- a gift that I have had for many years


Also, my dog Rocko wanted to join in on the pictures to say, HAPPY CINCO DE MAYO! For those of you that do not know, Rocko has his own blog: Life of Rocko. So be sure to stop on by and follow his adventures there.

Would You Wear This?

Reese Witherspoon showed up at the U.K. premiere of Water for Elephants wearing this cobalt Custom Stella McCartney bustier dress. I really have mixed emotions about this look on her. Let's start with the color. LOVE LOVE LOVE cobalt on Reese! Next, on to her hair and make-up...again, I love it all!


What is killing me about this look are the straps. I mean, what is going on there??? I guess they are made to be worn like that...but my question is: why? In my eyes it looks as though the dress is too large in the upper part of it, and the straps are just falling down. It actually kind of reminds me of back in the 90's when people would wear denim overalls with one, or even both straps down. I never understood that look...ever.

You be the judge, is this dress absolutely fabulous? Or do you hate it as much as I do?
