2018 Swimsuit Scarf Cover-up

 

Heading To The Beach This Weekend?

Beach time has finally arrived!

What’s more, fun than shopping for a swimsuit? It’s shopping for a cover-up for that newly found swimsuit. In reality, most of us dread the prospect of the swimsuit dressing room where we suck it in, squeeze it in and pledge to ourselves that we are going to exercise every day from now on and are never going to eat junk food again. Alas, all we need before hitting the pool or beach is an amazing scarf cover-up to do the job of keeping all those insecurities at bay.

Here’s an example of a simple, basic, outfit that works well for me all weekend long.

Mother’s Day Celebration

The Weekend

Hi there! I hope you had a really special weekend. I did, we started the weekend off with by attending the UF versus Georgia baseball game Friday evening. Great game, between the #1 and #2 SEC East baseball teams!

Saturday was rest and relaxation with some Real Estate business thrown in for good measure.

Sunday was filled with the blessings of family and good friends for a Mother’s Day brunch and pool time.

Ruana vs Poncho…Is There A Difference?

Ruana or Poncho?

 

I thought I was wearing a poncho, but everyone keeps complimenting me on my ruana.

Today the big chill has once again set in, and so it’s goodbye to thoughts of spring fashion.

Overnight temps dropped into the low 30’s. That’s cold for mid-March in north Florida. So, keeping warm is first priority this morning.

Never fear! I’ve got just the outfit for this bright, sunny, chilly day. My kids gifted me a new poncho from Tommy Bahama for my birthday, and I haven’t had a chance to wear it yet.

Colored Denim Jacket and Everyday Blues

Colored Denim Jacket = Fashion Statement

Every day is a very good day, but that doesn’t mean that every day has to be a fancy day. Somedays are just made to be plain old denim wearing days. I personally love nothing more than blue jeans and a white tee. Now, if we add a pop of color, all the better!

Who doesn’t Love a Colored Denim Jacket?

It’s been a hot topic of conversation on the internet the past few weeks about an article which stated that women over 40 should NOT wear blue jeans.

“CRAZY,” I say!

We are the generation who made blue jeans our uniform. “Say what you want, do what you want but you will find me “Forever In Blue Jeans”!

May I have your attention ladies?

I’ve got some great news to share.

A couple of weeks ago I was approached by Paula Durban the founder of Covered Perfectly, a California based company whose purpose is to provide flattering, comfortable clothing for women over 40. 

First, let me say that I have been a long time admirer of Paula’s clothing line and so I was delighted when she asked me to review one of her tops.

Now let me tell you it was not an easy task choosing just one item from the vast selection of tops offered. Nevertheless, I chose the Shoulder Zip Tunic and I am so happy that I did.

Later in this post, I am going to share how I styled this one top for 5 different occasions.

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

Southern Living or Southern Freezing?

What’s up with this photo?

No, I’m not headed out on an Alaskan vacation. You guessed it! Just running a few January errands and we’ve been hit with a week of winter weather here in northern Florida.

While a huge part of the country is reeling from unbelievable nasty winter weather, there are no complains here. But, we southerners do have the minor dilemma of how to dress when the weather is not coherent with our regular wardrobe. My answer – a warm cashmere topper in the back of my closet.
