Welcome to FALL!!   I must admit I can feel a slight shift in the temperature.  But that doesn’t mean I’m convinced, I need to feel more LOL.  Today I chose to wear Culottes and a Crop Top.  It’s the perfect outfit to start off the Fall season.  These culottes can certainly be re-styled with a pair of boots as the temperature drops and we move into Winter.  The possibilities are endless.  I will certainly get a huge bang for my buck on these for sure 😉 .
I always say Crop Top and that’s what it is, BUT I’m way to old to have my skin showing.  Lucky for me my torso is short and nothing shows. The top falls just above the waist-line.
I accessorized today with a long back and gold necklace and watch, black earrings and gold bracelet, all very simple.  The BAG, I know I always say I love my bags which I do! this one was in a clearance bin at Marshall’s I couldn’t believe it.  Been itching to carry it and today was the day.  Don’t be surprised if you see it again real soon…
Kudos to my husband for capturing some great angles today.  He made me look skinny!!

HAPPY SUNDAY… Well, am I bright or what? You know I Love COLOR. I’ve been looking in my closet week after week at this skirt and top. I loved it on the hanger but wasn’t sure about it being on me LOL.

Its bright I know, but I do LOVE it… There is something to be said for a Crop Top and A-line Skirt, they go well together. Its very flirty  🙂 The raised flower petal detail is so strong I didn’t need to add many accessories. I kept the necklace simple and opted for a toned down shoe color.

Lets talk about my bag. I was so excited to carry it today and it was PERFECT with my outfit. It’s not vintage but instead a vintage replica, I will cherish it for years to come.

Style Tip: Don’t be afraid of color. Take your time in choosing the right color, mix and match contrasting colors they really make a statement.

Happy Sunday everyone. What a beautiful day this turned out to be. We had great praise and worship this morning.

It’s SPRING, so let the bright colors begin. Today turquoise is the main attraction. I decided to pull out the brightest color in my top to showcase my entire outfit. The skirt is by the same designer as the top, sold as separates. I could have chosen just about any color skirt to pair with my top. I think the red helps to break up the turquoise in my jewelry, shoes and bag. I think it all paired wonderfully. This outfit would be just as cute if the two were reversed.  Get ready for floral prints this spring 😉

Remember, there are no rules when it comes to fashion. If you like it, wear it… Enjoy your week!

Mixed Patterns.. Happy Super Sunday.   Today I decided to mix patterns.  I adore the look even though I don’t do it very often.  A lot of people don’t think about mixing patterns, most are afraid to take the risk.  My blue and white checkered “crop top” paired well with my “balloon skirt”.  As I was dressing I was immediately drawn to this floral shoe.  I always do two looks before making my final decision.  Even though the other shoe worked, this one did the most.  I purchased this bag recently not knowing how I was going to use it… It works…  AND… I just had to ADD a statement necklace.  Pretty perfect I would say 🙂 .
Remember ladies, don’t be afraid to mix patterns, “NO RULES” go for it.  I DID…
Enjoy your Super Sunday.

It’s Gaucho Sunday… Can you believe its WINTER in Texas with 85 degree weather? How is one supposed to dress LOL…? The Gaucho is back as well as Culottes. I will wearing both as we move into spring. On a day like today a simple pump was perfect. If it had been much, much cooler I would have opted for boots. That’s how versatile the Gaucho is…. and these have pockets. Love pockets.

I decided to wear this tan and burgundy stripe crop top. Again, if it had been COLD I would have worn a sweater or something similar. Instead of choosing a solid pump I chose something with a pattern to keep if Funky. Didn’t want to be too matchy-matchy…

Let’s talk about this purse. Those that know me well; know I collect clutches. One of my favorite designers is the one and only Betsey Johnson. She makes some FUNKY- WHIMSICAL bags. This particular one is a perfume bottle and it really jazzed up my outfit. Her bags are fun and make for interesting conversation.

That’s it for today, I’m going to get out and enjoy some of this Texas Winter Weather 😉 until next time remember…

What a great weekend it has been….  Happy Sunday…  Today’s outfit was cute yet simple.  I think I will place it in the fun category.  I chose this black and white pencil skirt and somewhat of a see thru crop top (not quite) with a cami.  Fringe accompanied me by way of my shoes and purse 🙂  Oh! Notice I’m not wearing my usual sunglasses.  I just picked up a new pair yesterday.   There is BEAUTI in everything, find it…
