Winter On Sale!

January 31, 2023

Now is the perfect time to find fabulous winter gear on sale!  The markdowns are impressive and you still have enough winter left to enjoy the pieces before you have to put them away until next year.

Here’s is my completely random list of winter items on sale that caught my eye. Honestly, I haven’t personally been shopping the winter sales lately, because I’ve been spending my time and money on vacation shopping!  But now that I pretty much have that wardrobe figured out, it’s time for me to see what there is to see on the sales racks right now.

 

See anything that grabs your attention? Are you shopping winter sales currently? Let us know in the comments!

Also on the blog lately, this amazing statement coat (now 60% off!) and stretchy everything!

The monthly newsletter will be out soon, so sign up  if you haven’t yet! Your email address is always safe with me.

Pink and Gray Aztec Print Coat

January 26, 2023

Vacation shopping might have me dreaming about warm weather, but we’re still solidly in winter. And since California this winter is extra cold and wet, I’m really enjoying this cozy Aztec pink and grey coat, a fabulous Christmas gift from my friend Lynn!

Vacation Shopping!

January 24, 2023

Part of the joy of vacation for me is deciding what to wear, and shopping for some new pieces to make the trip even more special.

Soon, we’re on our way somewhere warm. Any guesses where? It’s been rainy and chilly in San Jose lately and we’re looking forward to a change of temperature and a chance to explore someplace new!

For fun, I’m sharing what’s been on my radar for the vacation and a list of what I’ve actually bought.

On my Vacay Radar:

What I Bought So Far!

 

It will be a little while before we actually go, but eventually I’ll have fun photos and stories for you!

In the meantime, check these posts: Viva Magenta and comfortable denim pieces!

Chico’s “Love Your Denim” Sale!

January 19, 2023

Some of my favorite jeans are from Chico’s. I especially love their Super Soft Girlfriend Jean.  Even though wider leg jeans are in style now, I believe that skinny jeans are now a classic and every women needs at least one good pair in her closet. When it’s stretchy, soft, and comfortable, thats a win, win, win all around!

Pantone’s Color of 2023 – Viva Magenta!

January 17, 2023

The Pantone Color Institute picks a color of the year at the beginning of every year and this year their pick is Viva Magenta!  Pantone describes this color as full of vim and vigor, animated, fearless, and full of life! I love it!

 

Magenta can have different tones. Viva Magenta is more red than some shades of magenta, which sometimes leans more into hot pink and purple territory. But whatever the twist, magenta is a fun, vibrant color and I say bring it on for 2023!

Shop MAGENTA!

 

What do you think? Will you be adding any magenta to your closet this year?

Also on the blog lately, what I wore fora rainy day at the mall and a year in outfits!

I’m hoping for an outfit post for you on Thursday, but the weather is NOT collaborating this week in California!  Friends, I LOVE the rain, but this is getting crazy!

Fun & Fashion,

California Rainy Day

January 12, 2023

If you’ve been watching the news, you know that California has been getting hammered with rain! It’s exciting for us and I love the rain, but it is causing all sorts of trouble like flooding and mudslides.

One rainy day I got to meet up with my friend Cathy (Bay Area Fashionista) for lunch at Valley Fair Mall and this is what I wore.
