Hello, it’s kind of hard to believe we are in the thick of summer, nearing the end of June. Before you know it, we will be soon hearing the back to school ads, those always really get to me. Because it reminds me that I am no longer a part of “that world” which makes me a little sad and it also reminds me of how short a season summer really is, can’t believe July 4th is next week!

Today’s post is about simple casual day to day dressing. Because I now work full time, I go casual but comfortable. I love deals just like anyone else…and find that as the summer goes on, the summer deals on clothing/shoes just get better and better. I did a little “replenishing” lately and must say I found some really fabulous things at even more fabulous prices. So as I periodically do I turn this into a “Which would you choose”. So ready to choose your three faves? Here we go…….



CHOICE 1 Own three pair of these and have worn the lift out of them:) They are my office show, super comfortable and smart looking. Offered in three great colors, they are now almost half off! Click here

CHOICE 2 This is one of those little cotton dresses you can throw on to head out for the day, lounge around the house in or doubles as a easy breezy pool/beach coverup, the price is right too! Click here

CHOICE 3 I have a shelf on my closet devoted strictly to striped tops, I swear I could break a record! This one is adorable, thrown tougher with white pants, it’s such an easy and smart look. Click here

CHOICE 4 Hope I like this top as much as I did seeing it online, very cute and perfect for summer days and evenings, click here

CHOICE 5 St Johns has come a long way…I have a few of their things and they are classics like this beautiful pale peach boucle dress, the kind of “go to”dress everyone needs in their closet, best part they are on sale for nearly 60% off! Click here

CHOICE 16 Everyone needs a good fitting pair of white casual daytime capris…and these are a sure thing. Great fit, that I can attest to. All colors on sale, click here


And that is a wrap, your turn to choose your three favorite summer staples. Do you have a go to outfit or a “uniform” that you like to wear for daytime dressing? I like a lot of cute, fun summery tops paired with capris or pants from Theory or NYDJ with espadrilles for day to day in my office. Then step it up at night, I look for  items that can do double duty…… into night. Your turn to chime in.

Thanks as always for stopping in! Wishing you a wonderful day……

Today’s deal of the day just in time for all you summer entertainers is my beautiful three tier wood server, so love this piece. It has the “wow” factor!

Good morning Tina,

So many fun picks for summer. I love dresses in the summer, they are so easy and stylish. Have a great day!

Hi Tina, I see you have several outfits that are off the shoulder. Personally, any woman over 50 should not be wearing off the shoulder blouses or dresses. Just my opinion.

Who won the gift wrap give away? I don’t remember seeing that announced.

Lisa on

Beautiful choices! Love the linen pants and raffia flats.

Love so many of these, those raffia sandals are calling my name, though. We are going to the Amalfi coast in August and those and dress 11 would be perfect. Thank you for helping me to do “vacay” shopping”:-)
