How do you wear stripes on stripes? With seersucker! It's the perfect tiny stripe base for any bolder stripe.
 
Something about Labor Day draws me to red, white and blue. Maybe it's because those colors, especially in stripes, will always say summer to me.
 
Are you looking forward to this weeked? Sales? travel? bar b ques? Or just relaxing with a day off? I'm looking  forward to all of it.

This peplum top has only made one other appearance on the blog. While I consider this a classic piece, I just haven't worn it. I guess I should. I got lots of compliments on it at work. I was inspired by a pin on pinterest showing a navy top and camel pants to put this outfit together. To keep it from being too plain I chose burgundy red pumps and this olive and gun metal statement necklace with brown and peach beads to play off the camel color. I wanted to keep it a little conservative because I had court, but if you really want to make this more colorful and make this outfit pop, I recommend bright red shoes and a colorful statement necklace.

It's not over yet

Summer- it's not over yet, or as we would say here in the south- it AIN'T over yet. Nope, not on the calendar or with the temps, so I'm still going through my summer wardrobe and getting in as much wear as possible. As tempting at the plaids, fur, olive, booties and such may be, summer is not over yet and it' not quite time for them. 
 
I've had this outfit  in my head for almost a year, based on the scarf. I don't know why it took me all summer to finally wear it but here it is. Everything in this post is super old. I do tend to keep and wear things for years, even it I only wear it once or twice a season. It breaks the boredom.

Green pencil skirt= ten ways

Good morning! If we can survive this week, most of us will have a long weekend this weekend and a short week next week! There is light at the end of the tunnel.

Pencil skirts are great for office environments. Don't think you have to stick with black, navy, grey, or khaki. Add some color. Here are ten ways I've worn my green pencil skirt.

1/ 2/ 3/ 4/ 5/ 6/ 7/ 8/ 9/ 10


Seeing these all in one place makes me think I need to find a way to wear this skirt outside of navy, cobalt and black. How would you wear it?

Everyone has been talking about fall lately, but I have been trying to ignore it because it will still be a good two months before I can get into anything truly fall related. It may even be hot here in November. However, I guess subconsciously the fall talk got to me as I put together this earthy toned outfit. I actually had a light bulb moment when I was staring into my closet one evening and realized this cardigan and top would go together. Both pieces have been a part of my wardrobe for several years but I have never thought about wearing them together. Mustard was the obvious pairing for me. So glad I realized this version of green would work too.
 
Hope you've had a good week!
