Sunday Look: Autumn Escape

Happy Sunday!  What a weekend I’ve had.  Let me tell you a little bit about me and my life in case you didn’t know.  For starters I’m a professional woman.  I’m a REALTOR®, wife, mother and grandmother.  This weekend like most was full of grandkids sporting events.  Now add car repairs into the mix.  I got my hands dirty assisting my husband  in changing the sparkplugs out on my car and replacing headlights, park lights and taillight bulbs (my hands are smaller than his, he needed me).   Yep you read correctly!  One thing about me, I’m not afraid to get my hands a little dirty. All while in full make-up and lipstick! 😉   There is more to me than what you see weekly).  I can do a few other things as well 😉 .  Now you know a little bit more about me.
Needless to say I was worn out.  There was no time to plan for todays outfit.   This dress, autumn escape is the perfect name for this color because I’m certainly trying to escape to Autumn somewhere.  Oddly, I have another dress that’s very similar to this one.  I purchased this one about two years ago, I was SO surprised it fit, seriously!

Nothing is more girly than lace. The lace detail on this dress is so pretty with a scalloped hemline and scalloped neckline with three quarter length sleeves.  I kept the accessories girly with pearls.  Pearls are the most versatile piece of jewelry you can own (besides diamonds).  You can wear them with ANYTHING…  I chose to wear a nude T-strap patent leather high heel pumps.
My BAG today, a neutral colored bag with a 3D bow detail.  Accessories done!

Sunday Look: Head to Toe Neutrals

Happy Sunday!  Another beautiful week in the books.  Each morning I can tell the season is trying to change.  It’s always a long transition from Summer to Fall around here though.   With that change, I’m still sleeveless LOL!
Today’s outfit is a throwback of sorts to 2014, which was the last time I wore this dress (so happy it still fit).  I was attracted to the deep “V” sweetheart neckline and lace trim.  I also liked how the entire dress is layered in neutrals.  I kept everything neutral (on purpose). Why?  I just love the pristine look.

I accessorized in neutrals as well.  I started with a long pair of round pearl earrings and necklace.  I also wore a nude platform round toe shoe to finish off the look.

My BAG today a classic; monogram handbag in the same neutral colors.

It was so easy to style this dress, keeping everything neutral made it all flow effortlessly!  Another successful recycle from my closet 😉 .

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: Cape Jacket

Happy Sunday… My how time is flies, we are already halfway through this month.  Since we are having a “warm winter” 🙁  it’s kind of tough finding something to wear for the season.  That brings me to today’s outfit.  The Cape Jacket, I started admiring these cape jackets last winter.  When the time came to purchase one I was hesitant.  I loved them in print and on other people but I wasn’t feeling it on me.  But, I really like it.  I had to listen to my own motto “If you like it, wear it” So, that’s what I did today!
This cape jacket has a beautiful lace overlay and pockets. Upon purchasing I had no idea what bottom I would pair with the jacket.  One day I ran across this black/blue lace skirt and I immediately thought “this would go great with my cape jacket”… Today it all came together.
I LOVE THE LOOK…

To accessorize I decided NOT to wear a solid color shoes, only because there was so much Navy. The two-toned shoes added an extra shade of (blue)color.  I continued my accessories with multiple strand pearls.  I tried on about three different strand of pearls, but the multiple strand really made the outfit look “high fashion”  after all I am wearing a cape! 🙂 .
My BAG; keeping with the blue theme, I carried this satin blue clutch with a jeweled and gold tone closure.  Black would have worked as well.
Style Tip: I really think this cape could be toned down with a pair of skinny or wide leg jeans.  Accessories can make a HUGE difference on the type of look you get.  How would you restyle this cape?

Happpy Sunday (evening),  I’m a bit late posting today.  We decided to take a drive after church to San Antonio for a late lunch with friends.
Today’s outfit was fairly simple.  I’m all blushed out in this babydoll crochet lace dress.  It has me feeling like a school girl.  Having a drawstring at the neck required no jewelry.   Nude pumps rounded out the look. Told you it was simple.   Yet, still stylish 😉 . Fashion should be effortless. NO RULES!

Out the door… first day of Fall. Transitioning into Fall attire will be a slow process in TEXAS. We are still facing ninety degree weather. So we won’t be pulling out the sweaters anytime soon, at least I won’t LOL…

This light weight cream and black lace dress is a gradual start to my Fall, its allows me to stay cool as this heat continues. In keeping with the color palette I accessorized with pearls and a bag of the same color. My shoes bring it all together. Happy First Day of Fall to all…    There is BEAUTI in everything, find it…
