Sunday Social: Summer Linen










Happy Sunday!  Well we’ve completed our first full week of Summer, can you tell?  In keeping with casual Sunday’s to “beat the summer heat” I chose the ultimate summer clothing “linen”.  Nothing says summer like linen.  Even though it’s one of my favorite summer fabrics I can never really get past the wrinkles LOL.

I chose this tangerine linen jacket the complement my “wide leg” white linen pants. In an effort to keep cool (temperature wise) I wore a simple white cami under the jacket.  My statement piece my necklace (its huge) but I LOVE it!  My fun piece my bag.  I’m done LOL…  until next time… KEEP COOL if you can…

Sunday Social: Blue & White Pinstripe











Happy Sunday!  Today’s outfit consist of this  full pinstriped skirt.  Who doesn’t love a full skirt.  It certainly fits my body type and all other body types too.  It kind of makes you want to twirl… 🙂

I really adore this scuba like fabric, its so light weight and comfortable.  And with this intense heat I’m all about comfort.  Keeping with being cool, I chose this sleeveless blouse with lose tie.  I wore a thin chained necklace, it didn’t photograph because it was hiding behind the tie. Something else you can’t see in the photo are my awesome cuff earrings.  You can also wear a cuff earring on one ear and a stud or something else in the other ear.

My shoe of choice was this strappy blue sandal, some bangles and funky magazine hand bag.

Style Tip:  I love to mix in an element of surprise and my magazine hand bag does just that, SURPRISE!!!

Oh! and Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome Dads out there… especially to my husband and son.

Sunday Social: Picnic Sunday “Denim Style”









Today was Picnic Sunday… What does one wear when church is combined with picnic day?  So happy you asked?  I knew I needed to be comfortable, cool and appropriate.  I chose this long denim button down with high side slits top.  I paired it with a soft stretch denim legging.  You know I’m hardly ever without my heels.  I can maneuver just about any terrain in my heels 😉  (I always keep a back-up pair of flat just in case).

Let’s talk accessories… A friend gave me a set of string button necklaces.  They were the perfect accessory to this top.  I knew I wanted something long.  I wore two, left one long and doubled the other for a more layered look.  Simple right?  My other favorite accessory was this denim bag.  It added something whimsy to the entire outfit.  Oh! how can I forget about my SUPER SIZED SUNNIES, so obsessed, LOL.  Didn’t need much else and the look was complete.  Until next time, have a great week!

Style Tip: “Denim is trending right now”

Sunday Social: Boho Chic






I’m back!  Last week I was in beautiful Florida and Savannah Georgia.  It was a great trip, happy to back blogging.

Since the heat has set in I chose to dress casual by going Boho Chic.  This style of clothing is so relaxing. Boho got its name from hippie and gypsy fashion.  The loose fitting clothing leaves you feeling so FREE… LOL

As I was shopping one of the big discount stores I saw the skirt first and liked it, as I continued to walk around I saw this top, immediately  I said “BOHO”.  Not my normal style of clothing but I liked it…  you know my motto!.  I had forgotten all about this wedge until this morning.  It’s all the shoe I needed for this outfit.  I accessorized with a simple necklace, earrings, bangles and watch.  Notice how I mixed a combination of gold and silver.  Its ok to mix metals!

NEXT WEEK: Picnic Sunday
