Brooklyn Hat Company & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up Party!

April 21, 2016

I love hats.  Hats always elevate an outfit, don’t they?  Plus they protect our skin from the harmful rays of the sun and they can cover up all sorts of sins … bad hair, dirty hair, gray roots.

Ponchos & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

October 8, 2015
I’m a sucker for ponchos. If I had more time this week, I’d dig out a pic of me as a kid in my crochet poncho look, circa 1975.  You’ll just have to use your imagination.  And don’t forget to make it a 70s-rific brown, rust, and mustard!

August Rocksbox & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

August 6, 2015

Don’t I have a dreamy look on my face in this picture?  It could be because of this dreamy Urban Gem necklace in my latest Rocksbox! 

(Or it could be because I just figured out that if a tilt my head back and take a picture from above, my wrinkles tend to slide back to my ears and out of sight!)

Karina Dresses & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

June 25, 2015
Welcome to this week’s Fun Fashion Friday.  Before we start the fashion fun, I want to thank everyone for the sweet compassionate comments last week.  It really meant a lot to me.

This week I’m excited to be showing off my first Karina Dress! Gee, I kinda feel like the last fashionista on the planet to have one, and now I know why they’re so popular … easy dressing at it’s best!

I picked the “Megan” in a black and white clover print.  It was hard choose just one dress because so many options looked so pretty!  One of my favorite features of Karina Dresses is that they help you pick a dress based on your body type for the best fit.  I totally recommend the “Megan” style for fellow pear shapes. It couldn’t be more flattering.

I love so many things about Karina. All their dresses are machine washable and wrinkle free.  I also noticed that pet hair doesn’t stick to this material … a big plus in my home. And one of my favorite features?  A wrap style top that stays … wrapped!  I never had to fuss with pulling it closed or pinning it.  I’m betting that this pretty number goes into regular teacher rotation once the school year starts again.  

Here I styled the dress with a vintage bag and shoes.  I thought it echoed the classic retro styling nicely.  And by now you all know I’m a sucker for black and white with a pop of red!

Mod Chic & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

May 28, 2015

Loving this new top from Showinbuy!  The bold geometric design and boxy fit make me think of a mod 1960s look.

First I styled it dressy with a skirt (Kasper) and heels (Kohls).  I always love my red bag (London Fog) with black and white.

Then I thought, who am I trying to kid that I’ll be comfortable teaching all day in a skirt and high heels?  I changed to skinny jeans (Gap) and flats (Seychelles). I really liked both outfits.

My favs from last week ….

Katherine Eldridge is looking chic and on point in this great ensemble.

I  never would’ve thought to put these pieces together, but how cool does Monika of Style is my Pudding look in this chic combo? Fabulous!

Happy 30th to Rachel of Garay Treasures!  Isn’t she looking totally adorable?
