Sunday Look: High-Low Tank Dress

Happy Sunday!  Are you all melting like I am?  We have had one of the hottest weeks ever.  Trying to keep cool has been my focus.  Today’s outfit was purposely chosen for this heat. Not a lot of color, but surely cool and comfortable.  I’m wearing a high-low tank dress made from a very lightweight cotton fabric.  The high-low concept has been a fashion trend for quite some time now.  I feel it will always be a top look, you can always find this style in tops, skirts and dresses.  This tank dress can be dressed up or down.  I’m sure when it gets cold (if it ever does) it can be worn with a turtle neck and accessorized accordingly.

In order to dress it up a bit I accessorized with a STATEMENT necklace, (is it perfect or what?). When ever I see an item of clothing I always have a piece of jewelry in mind. And I’ve been saving this necklace for this dress 😉 .  Earrings in a similar tone and shape followed. Of course I’m never without my usual bracelet(s) and watch.  I let go of my Fitbit for a moment LOL…  It wasn’t very hard to choose a shoe for today’s outfit.  I knew in advance that I would be wearing a nude color pointy toe heel.

My BAG today was an all time favorite, the iconic monogram  canvas handbag. This is the perfect bag for any occasion or outfit.

Sunday Look: The Trapeze Dress


I’m back!  Last week I was on vacation and didn’t have a free moment to blog. If I get the chance I may do a short blog about my vacation.
Today’s outfit was fun.  This was my first time wearing what they call a trapeze dress (I think).  It’s like a tent so I guess the name is appropriate! And did I say I LOVE IT… LOL.  Its a smock black and white pinstripe dress, off the shoulder neckline with avant garde ruffled sleeves that create this totally on-trend silhouette.   Since I wore this dress to church I kept the shoulder exposure minimal. Trust me when I tell you its so cute totally off the shoulders. Remember what I said about the shoulders being the sexiest part of a woman’s body 😉 .

There was no need for any kind of chunky or statement necklace.  I did wear a simple choker.  I really didn’t need anything except for the usual lady accessories; earrings and bracelets.  I chose open strapy heels to finish the look.

My bag today was an edgy black tote with studs and  silver rings as handles.  It’s amazing how certain bags go well with certain outfits.  I seem to get it right every time!

Sunday Look: Lace Skater Dress

 Happy Sunday!  It’s another HOT one today.  Today’s outfit, this sweet lace skater dress.   It’s so girly, makes you feel like twirling LOL!   Lace is one of those summer fabrics that can be worn in a variety of ways.  This particular dress would be perfect for attending a wedding, bridal shower or just a girls night out.  The possibilities are endless.

In keeping with the girly theme I thought I would be sweeter by adding pearl accessories.  After all pearls are always appropriate.  I kept the shoe nude, but it had to be a pointy toe 😉 .  A strappy sandal would have worked as well.


Did you think you would see this bag again so soon?  Like I said, I’m obsessed with this Ark Bamboo handbag.  Its the perfect summer bag.  I could carry it all summer long.

Sunday Look: A Nod to the RED, WHITE & BLUE

Happy Sunday! Well, the July 4th holiday is upon us.  No better time to wear a little bit of RED, WHITE & BLUE… to celebrate the holiday.  Last week I mentioned that would be mixing old and new pieces together for the summer.  These (old) white slacks scream summer.  To complete the look add a little red and blue to the mix.  A blue peplum halter top suited the straight legged white slacks perfectly.  Every woman should own at least one Halter Top, it exposes the sexiest part of a woman’s body ” her shoulders”.  No matter a woman’s size her shoulders are very sexy!


Now that you have the White and Blue all you need is RED.  Red shoes complete the look.  Today I opted for a softer round toe platform heel verses my all time favorite pointy toe heel. Change is good, in this case either one would work.  No wrong choices here.

The peplum top is very detailed around the neck, NO necklace required.  All I had to do was add my usual pieces, earrings and my go to bangles.  Today I rocked three glass bangles in the RED, WHITE & BLUE (clink, clink)!

Let’s talk about my BAG;  I spotted this (showstopper)  RED tote bag on a mannequin.  I immediately hightailed it over to the purse section.  I couldn’t find it anywhere 🙁  so I did the next best thing, took it off the mannequin!  What else was I to do? I wanted this bag.   Today was my first time carrying it.  It’s HUGE and I love it!  This bag is going to be great for traveling I can already tell.  It will hold all my essentials… and more.   My daughter has already put claims on it LOL 🙂 . It’s still available online by the way.

Enjoy the July 4th holiday and all the festivities. Be safe and… How are you rocking your RED, WHITE & BLUE?
