Touring The Grand Canyon
Check One Off The Bucket List
Warning: Today’s post is long on photos and short on words.
Why? Because, on a recent business trip to Las Vegas last month, we took a couple days for a few side trips. And the most amazing of all was our helicopter trip to the Grand Canyon. The beauty and majesty of the landscape for me was breathtaking! A picture is worth a thousand words. So, I am going to let my photos speak for me today.
Sundays With Jake And Rex
Sunday morning and the sun is shining. What better reason to simply take life a little easy and enjoy the moment? It’s time for a no fuss no muss walk through the neighborhood with my two best buddies, Jake and Rex. This gorgeous morning is the perfect time for reflection on this past week and prayers for our friends, family along with all the people affected by hurricane Harvey. Today it’s Simply Sunday and I am simply grateful for everyone and everything around me.
It’s Coverup! No It’s A Casual Wrap!
Summer Fashion Or Fall Fashion?
Are you ready to go from the beach and to step into the fall season? As hard as it is to believe the Labor Day weekend is fast approaching. And my thoughts and style choices are starting to turn toward the fall season. Fortunately, many of my summer fashion pieces will transition right into fall.
Case in point, today’s outfit is simple, and relaxed. By simply taking pair of dark jeans plus a white camisole and adding a colorful summer beach wrap, I’ve stepped a little closer to the fall season. All the while, I am remaining cool and comfortable in today’s temperatures.
This multiway wrap is a custom made and hand dyed by a local artist. You can visit her Instagram page @island_dreaming_sg. It consists of one buttery soft, long length of material. When tied at the back of neck it makes a one of kind flowing vest.
And so, do you have any special pieces from summer that you are planning on changing up a bit for fall?
I’ll say good bye for now.
Thanks for dropping by!
Enjoy the Labor Day weekend!

Decisions From The Dressing Room
Ok, now that mid-August has arrived, fashion thoughts tend to turn toward fall. But, when one resides in southern states, we will still be living with the heat regardless of the calendar. So it’s a perfect time to hit the shops and snatch up some end of season sales!
Ready To Read?
Reading a good book is out and out one of my favorite past times!
Because I love reading, I also love sharing books that I have read. Here are some of my recent reads from the first half of the year with a short, personal review. Since, the summer has been really busy, I listened to several of these on audio. In fact, I found the audio versions really enjoyable, especially the ones with foreign accents. On account of, it made the experience so real. Plus, a couple were perfect in audio as I went about my daily walks. However, my most common method of reading is on my iPad. Since, I like to read a couple different books at a time the iPad works wonderfully for me. Wherever I go, my library is always in my tote .
This list was filled with a variety of different topics ranging from historical, to spiritual and some easy summer reads. I love the light reads for summer, but I have included some past picks from my book club. I always enjoy getting recommendations for books from someone who has read them. Maybe, you can find a few interesting books from this list!
Along Comes August
Mantra For August Is “Keep It Casual And Cool”
Here comes August and bringing with it is 31 days of sunshine, high temperapture plus plenty of humidity. Aside from the weather, the first half of August here in central Florida is filled with full-fledged summer activies. And then as if by magic the mindset changes to thoughts of fall. Come mid-August the schools are back in session. And, when you live in a college town the community begins to buzz with activity and excitement. Football fever is in the air. That’s not to say that it won’t still be summertime. But definitely, the slide into Labor Day is underway.
And so end-of-summer outfits need to be dominated by lightweight fabrics. Thankfully, by adding some seasonal colors with current classics we can easily sail right on through the cusp of seasonal dressing.
Reflections of July
Fashion Review: July
So far the days of summer are long and sweet, filled with lots of sun, fun and laughter. And now as the end of July is here, I have been working on the blog, looking at posts and taking a fashion review of July.
Truly, July has been a really fun filled fashion month for me. And so, I thought I would take the opportunity and share another look with you too.
Here goes! Now, let’s take a quick look back.
Lazy Hazy Days Of Summer
It’s one of those days. You know what I’m talking about. It’s mid-week, in the sizzling heat of July and I feel like today is the day for nothing special. It’s truly a lazy, hazy day. After a quick run to the grocery, a hello to you all, I’m going to call it a day. Maybe I’ll finish reading my book for this week’s book club meeting. By the way, we’re reading ” The Women In The Castle” by Jessica Shattuck. It’s a very good read and I would highly recommend it.
And The Winner Is Gingham!
Gingham is this summer’s fashion winner.
Picnic attire? Checkmate!
This preppy black-and-white print is not only classic and comfortable but also stylish.
Easily, it can be dressed up or dressed down. And the basic black-and-white palette makes it effortlessly versatile.
When wearing a touch of gingham print along with a netrual color, it delivers maximum impact with minimal effort!
