End of Summer Fashion

I don't know about you all, but I have my calendar out right now, marking the days off with a bright

red marker and singing to myself hallelujah, we have nearly made it through July!

You all know I am saying this because of this house business, and Ladies this house business is

taking it's sweet time-whew....it is good that maturity has taught me patience because I have just

about used mine all up and the next person's too.

And speaking of maturity-well just because we are aging doesn't mean we can't look good-because

we should and we can.

My Momma always said " Your fifties and beyond are some of the very best times of your life."

So far, so good and it looks like Mom was right.





This Summer I have loved my lightweight undies and unlined bras they have felt good against my

skin and kept me cool.

Granted, I still wear my lightly lined bras with sheer fabrics and form fitting tops.

I remember years ago an older friend telling me that she wore pretty underwear for herself, and

no one else, it made her feel feminine.

I think it is important to remember that thought in reference to many things in life.

It is all about being kind, loving, accepting of ourselves-nurturing who we are, not what image

the media has carved out for us.  After all-perfection is just an illusion.

Okay, now- you all must try butterLondon-it is positively amazing for hydrating lips and stays on

beautifully-silky smooth.  I even wear it walking, just because it feel so good...smiles...

Post Punk sunglasses-too cute and a great price-sunglasses are a must too-saves our eyes and helps

prevent wrinkles around that so sensitive and tissue like area.

Best deal of the day is the Striped Colorblock dress from Saks. Originally $185.00 now $49.99.



After my chemotherapy I developed very sensitive skin, that was many years ago, but my skin never

returned to it's original balance.

So, throughout the years it has been a struggle to find products that don't irritate it.

I use elta MD chemical free tinted natural sunscreen with anti oxidants on my face daily, it is

soothing, calming and non irritating.

I love it, I just apply some neutrogena bronzer  along my cheek bones.

To finish the look I apply MAC Studio Sculpt Lash, it ultra defines and lengthens lashes.

Love, love Aveda certified organic Rosemary Mint Body lotion, it cools, soothes and softens.

I wear a hat all Summer long-in the yard and on my walks-protects my face and my hair.




On a previous Fashion post I mentioned how we need to stay away from boxie Tunic designs.

I am very pleased to see that Soft Surroundings is adding a flattering A-line design to their

tunic designs.  I think this would be a perfect set for a early Fall day.

I simply could not resist adding these precious Gorina Velvet Polka Dot Pumps-new for Fall, so

if you feel like a splurge, girls, these can be yours too for $825.00-gulp...or just admire them like I

am.

Another natural product that I use is Plantlife natural body soap.

I have so enjoyed the peppermint herbal soap bar all of this Summer, it has been so refreshing and

invigorating especially after my long walks in the heat.

In fact, it is reported that Historical records as far back as 1600 B.C. document the medicinal

qualities.

I want to share the goodness of these bars with you~

So, I  purchased two extra bath bars at our market this week- one is peppermint, the other lavender.

If you are interested in putting your name in a hat for a giveaway, just leave me a little comment.

I will draw the name on Tuesday and contact you for your mailing address.

Thanks for stopping by today, I have been in Oklahoma this week and I have missed you all.

I will be visiting each one of you very soon!

Dresses and More


Happy Friday Lovely Ladies!

Well, you won't believe this, well you might, this was suppose to be a sponsored post.

Yes indeed, a sweet little deal where I was going to do a review and then there were some perks

for you and I.

I was envisioning you using the coupon to  purchase a casual and feminine dress or top maybe in a

soft tropical floral or stunning solid, and then wearing your new outfit out to dinner...

Well, the coupon for you all, just didn't seem like much of a deal to me, so I wrote

back to the company and said hey, I am ready to move forward but the coupon you are offering is

going to need to be for a bit more, if you are sincerely interested in this post.




Well, as you can tell by the looks of things, they weren't interested in increasing the perks.

So, here I am with my Friday picks for you and they are dresses and more.

There is a reason I chose dresses-comfort and style.

Comfort ladies in this hot Texas heat, or wherever you might live.

We are all in the middle of Summer heat.

I actually think that dresses are so flattering to all women, all shapes, and all ages.

Slip on some amazing sunglasses and a cuff bracelet and you are accessorized for a

Summer afternoon, simplicity is the key.





Some of the items I included today are some of the things in my own closet this season, they are

comfortable and fashionable.

Extra plus is that many of these items are getting ready to go on sale!

The maxi dress is fashion forward and transitions from daytime to evening very easily.

I discovered that I am a fan of the Reba line, her sizes run true, moderate pricing and comfortable.

I love my Vera Bradley Tote and I have this exact color-it nearly works as a neutral and is a

smashing color for Summer.

Have you tried Tocca Violette (Paris in Springtime) notes of african violet and cashmere musk.




Soft Surroundings has a mix of quality clothing, you may want to go down a size

 as they tend to run large.

Some of their styles can be a little boxie cut, so watch out for that, even when choosing dresses

it is important that we have a waistline-as you can see in this neutral maxi.

Don't forget to check out Old Navy and Gap for some great cotton shirt dresses.

I have several for this Summer, I always wash them on gentle in cold water and then hang to dry.

Yes, we have to iron them...pssst...but I secretly like too...

Kendra Scott has the perfect earring and the perfect color earring to add just the right pop of color

effortlessly to your Summer wardrobe.

If you are a little shy with adding bling to your style, try it on your feet first!

Love bling on a Summer sandal.




Hope your weekend is lovely and if it isn't quite what you had anticipated,

just remember some days we have to look a little harder for joy!

Be safe my dear friends!!

Fashion Friday-Valentine's Day

Fashion Friday just happens to fall on Valentine's Day

so, naturally we must dress accordingly

or at least dream and have a little fun.



Picture perfect table setting, dancing shoes and hearts.



Such feminine sweetness.


Perfectly red, perfectly girly and perfectly yummy cake...



Snow, no problem just add a red umbrella to your wardrobe...



White roses, kisses, heels and hearts




"Love is the only answer to every question.  It is the only thing

that will serve you in every situation.  It is the route and the

destination.  It is medication and liberation..."

 ~ Rasheed Ogunlaru~



Happy Valentines Day My Dear Friends, wishing you true joy

and much love always~


Fashion Friday -Fall and Holiday Trends

Fall has arrived and Holiday 2013 is just around the corner.  These 

are a few of my favorite picks for this week.  Many of these are 

designer fashions.  But keep in mind that all fashion ultimately

trickles down from these big names.




Reptile is in for handbags, smoking shoes are hot this season and 

are comfortable too.  Soft shades of eyeshadow for a more natural 

look seem to be the trend - combine all of this together with a loose 

and soft sweater.






Use these examples, or any others which you see as your guide to 

be knowledgeable of what is in style.  Tone it down or bring it up,

make it your own and have fun with fashion!
