Style on Sunday

Hi there. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. Ours has been quite relaxing, it was so nice to have some much needed downtime! Dinner out, a little retail therapy, a movie (do not waste your money on The Family….couldn’t wait for it to end, brutally bad). Went to my sons football game, they lost the game the last 37 seconds of the game after being ahead the entire time..brutal! I have to admit I love the excitement over football, and of course all the “perks” the tailgating, the socialization aspect, the food, the adrenaline rush when its a close game, the food…oh yea I? mentioned that but lets just say I have a a lot and I do emphasize a lot to learn. My friends were trying to give me a crash course in football yesterday on the bleachers, and lets just say we laughed more than I learned…..so its a work in progress!

My son is a lacrosse player and always played soccer but after years of talking him out of football, he finally won this year, I must admit it is fun to watch and can be really exciting (when no ones on the ground that is) so my mission this week is to give myself a quick crash course in football plays and an elementary understanding of the game. A very elementary…as in kindergarten:)

Anywho, moving along……have been cleaning out my closet and talk about work, its like the bottomless pit. I look at things wondering why I hang onto them and then I look at the size, a size 4….no way is that going in the dump pile, its a reminder of what I was and something to strive for. Might be in my next life but what the heck. So all this cleaning out and reorganizing has me on a bit of a fashion kick and since I like to switch things up with my blog and include fashion…today features a few fashion boards I made up just to show ways to wear one thing a few different ways. Gray pants, camel pants, a simple leather skirt and weekend dressing. The common denominator is neutrals here, which is typically how I dress 95% of the time. They go a looooong way. Hope you enjoy…….

Weekend dressing. For me casual comfy but chic. Notice my new Annabel Ingall totes are very present here, they are so chic and yet practical….in every color. A simple pair of straight jeans or pants, a cute jacket or vest, chunky sweater, love my scarves, and flats or riding boots is? a great way to approach weekend dressing….

Black leather skirt. Do you own one? In my big closet cleanup, I found one from long ago and its actually a really pretty simple straight black skirt, so I started thinking about ways to reinvent it and here are a few ideas, one very casual daytime look and one evening look, ooh la la……

Camel pants. I love the combination of gray and camel. Always have. I have these exact DKNY straight camel pants and came up with a casual and evening look for them. Take a look……

Gray pants. Same deal with these gray pants. A slim fit so can be tucked into riding pants, but dressed up for evening too, love the idea of a belted coat like this one…….

So there you go. What do you think? How do you like to dress on weekends? I get excited over a new season and especially fall clothes….whats not to love, all those sumptuous knits, it’s the official season of cozy ! And speaking of cozy, I am super excited about a new introduction to my online shop later this week, here is a sneak peek of the most wonderful, super high quality, made in the USA, alpaca capes and scarves, LOVE these……..

Now if those won’t get you excited about fall dressing, don’t know what will! Enjoy your Sunday and end to your weekend. Thanks as always for stopping in!
