Style on Sunday

Hi there, how have you been these last few days? We have had a wonderful weekend, a super exciting Friday night football game for my son (37-0 us) so that’s one heck of a great way for a weekend to begin! Houseguests, good food, picture? perfect weather…….

We have one next month which is going to be at a beautiful private townhouse in NYC and I am already stressing on what to wear. I have an all time favorite black and lace dress but ahem…its a small size, so I need to dig deep to find some major willpower if I can fit into it (unlikely) so? take a look at all of these lovelies and tell me….which would you choose!

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!

Hello there! First before I get started with my post, I want to announce the lucky winner of the boxwood ball! Congratulations goes to…..

Result: 78

Tina…

Your blogs always make my day…I love seeing photos of your beautiful home…I think I even dream about your home!

The boxwoods are amazing…I think my favorite is the simple balls…I don’t have a lot of imagination but I think even I could find a pretty container for the balls and they would look great! Simple but elegant…

So with a new season upon us…its time to rethink some things in our wardrobe. I started a major clean out of my closet….its a “work in progress” and will require several days of “tackling” and sorting. Out with the florals, light colors, crisp white and all my light flowy tops and in with the black, gray and camel! I must admit I loooove fall dressing more than any other season, give me a great vest, a chic pair of boots, a soft sweater, a cozy scarf…I love it all. It can get a little trickier with formal dressing, sleeves are a nice perk (not only for warmth but you know………the arms)!

However there are many gorgeous sleeveless gowns that a pashmina could keep company:) So as I started thinking about a dress for a formal event we have this fall, I had fun scouring the web for some truly exquisite choices. Wow…so many beauties here! So you know the drill, imagine the formal fairy has paid you a visit and you are going to be all dolled up for the ball…which would you choose? Is there a clear cut favorite or are you like me and waiver between a few:) Let’s go…….

Hope you have had a great week. I don’t know about you…..but for me this was one of the busiest weeks I have had in a long long time. I am just now coming up for air and thankfully have a pretty relaxing weekend ahead me, could not have kept up this frantic pace much longer. Between a number of commitments, packing up lots of orders, bag mania around here:) and life…..its been one crazy busy week that I am so happy is winding down.

I was really hoping to have time to work on an “end of the musings” post but it was not in the cards so? hope to get that done over the weekend and share what’s new and exciting! In the meantime, bought my very first sweater of the season and pair of boots (riding boots to be specific) which got me thinking………

One of the things I love about fall is the fashion. Give me a great pair of riding boots and I am a happy girl. I had fun looking into all the ways they can be worn and thought it would make a fun post. So……here’s the deal (and lets make this really fun and just assume all these super svelte bodies are included here) which look would you choose? I look forward to seeing who takes top prize. Ready, lets go…..

Hi there and happy Monday morning to you.? Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Ours was fun and quite busy. A big party Sat. night, amazing the power of a turquoise necklace! It solved all my wardrobe woes:) Got to see Blue Jasmine and loved it (as I do nearly all Woody Allen films) it was done really well, and Cate’s performance was spectacular! I definitely recommend it. The weather around these parts was nothing short of perfection . I mean seriously incredible, no humidity, 70’s, bright sunny skies..almost cool at night,no complaints over here:)

It has forced me to realize fall is not so far away. I have succumbed to the fact that summer is winding down with only about 3 weeks left to go, the start of school and the many back to school sales are a sure reminder, football practice is starting and of course? fall is beckoning and getting louder every day with subtle little hints. The bright side is of course that I love fall weather, comfort foods and of course all the beautiful fall fashions!

Every season I buy at least one really good coat, one that I am totally in love with and will feel like a million bucks wearing. It is afterall a very long season and I get a lot of mileage out of my good classics.? So I got busy and admittedly had fun checking out some of the new coats. You know what’s next…..your turn to choose! If you were in the market for a brand new coat, which would one would find a way into your closet? Ready, let’s go……..
