Hamsa & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

April 9, 2015
Everything old is new again.
The hamsa image is showing up on tshirts and jewelry all over the place.  This ancient symbol has been used for centuries as protection against the evil eye in the Middle East and parts of Africa.  The vibe of this amulet fits right in with the bohemian aestetic so on trend right now.

Outfit details and shopping ideas:

Distressed BF jeans – Old Navy

Nude sandals – Michael Shannon (cute option, Zappos))
Shop for platform sandals at Shopbop.

Jewelry – Tillys

Studded clutch – Urban Expressions (Nordstrom Rack)
Shop for studded clutches at Zappos
Shop for studded clutches at Shopbop

And while the hansa symbol may guard against the evil eye, it’s no protection at all against my wild Siberian husky!

I decided to go with a casual theme for this week’s features:

Here’s Jill of Doused in Pink looking so cool and comfy.

Everyone knows I’m a sucker for a cute dog top and here’s Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust looking adorable in hers.

Loving this striped top with the utility vest on pretty Casey of A Little Bit Of Cheer.

I love casual chic!

Now Dolls … link up, link back, browse around & have FUN!

Rain-Bow Sweater & Fun Fashion Friday!

April 2, 2015

Last weekend my husband took me to see Rain, a Beatles tribute band.  I thought something a bit psychedelic was in order, so I wore my Free People sweater coat.  It’s an old favorite … seen in this Feb 2014 post.

Wouldn’t Rebecca of Red Tag Chic Los Angeles fit right in with our boho vibe?  Loving this Stevie Nicks inspired ensemble she shared with us last week!

And I’m positive Steve Nicks would also approve of this magical look from Andrea of Boho Bunnie!

How lovely is Annette of Lady of Style in this pretty blue tunic?

And Glenda of So What to Twenty is looking like walking sunshine in this beautiful yellow dress!

T-shirts are always a spring/summer casual wardrobe staple.  With the graphic tee trend still going strong, they’re a playful must-have this season!

I’ve been finding tons of cool tees at  Sun Frog Shirts for gifts and for myself.  

I bought this one for my husband. If you’ve ever had a hyper husky in your life, you can relate.

I almost bought this funny tee for my dog loving pal, but picked another super cute one instead.  (Can’t show you because I haven’t given it to her yet!)
More clever things for the animal lover in your life at Sun Frog Pet Tees.

And I bought this for my very favorite math teacher …

How adorable is she?

Can you get the math joke?

More witty Teacher Tees!

Here’s a couple of other darling tees on my summer want list ….

(I think I have a thing for animals in sunglasses!)

Super cute stuff!

Middle-aged Goldilocks & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

February 18, 2015
I felt a bit like Goldilocks recently looking for a chambray shirt. The shirt was either too big, too small, too dark, too light, too short, too stiff, or too boxy.  So this middle-aged Goldilocks was thrilled to finally find this shirt that was just right!  It’s Cloth and Stone (an Anthropologie brand) and I found it at Crossroads Trading, a store with new and gently used clothing to buy, sell, or trade.
It was the perfect color and length for me and so soft too.  Isn’t the back detail cute?


Outfit details:
Jeans – Gap Always Skinny
Plain white tee – Old Navy
Shooties – Madden Girl
Black straw bag – Vintage
Necklace – Lucky Brand
Earrings – Nordstrom Rack
Sunglasses –
Denim with denim? Of course!  We all know those old rules no longer apply!


And this little guy wanted to come see what Mommy was up to.


Sending out a huge thanks to everyone who has been participating in FUN FASHION FRIDAY! I’m having tons of fun and I hope everyone else is too!
Here are a few of my favorite Valentine’s Day inspired looks from last week …
Debbie of Fashion Fairy Dust is looking hip and chic in her plaid sweatshirt and leather skirt.
Alice of Happiness at Mid-life is a feminine romantic vision in pretty polka dots.
How adorable is Chioma of Chioma’s Evolution of Style in her Barbie pink skirt and denim jacket?
Miriam of Farm Girl outdid herself this week with this precious Valentine’s Day look.  Love those red tights!
Laura of I Do DeClaire looks fabulous in this cozy red sweater and those great pattern pixie pants!
Okay Dolls, time to party …
