Leaving On A Jet Plane

 Today’s the day for a new adventure!

Actually, for the remainder of this week I’m heading off to California, Los Angles to be exact!

Definitely, excited for sure! And I’m packing light with carry on luggage for my four days of California sunshine. Checking bags when you travel can be a formula for disaster and a time waster when in a hurry.  In any case, I’m keeping life simple.  I am traveling light with a carry on and tote.

Dressing For Fall

Hello October – Goodbye September

It’s Time To Start Dressing For Fall

Dressing for fall

Happy Fall!

It’s October 1st and the autumn has definitely arrived! And it’s time to change up the colors in my wardrobe… start dressing for fall. I absolutely love this time of year. Now, that the humidity is beginning to subside, you can find me right here on the front porch waiting for my ride. Here’s how it works at my house, “Call me when you come into the neighborhood and I meet you outside.”  No, I’m not nuts! Remember those two Shelties like nothing better that to greet guests at the front door and many times the Grandkids are in the car. “Keep it simple”, that’s  my motto.

A White Shirt Is The Perfect Basic Top

 Outfit Of The Day

The Simple White Shirt

white shirt

I am an avid fan of a white shirt or blouse. For me it is one of the easiest ways to put together a basic classic outfit. The idea that you can dress it up or down depending on your choice of pants or skirt is a total thumbs up.

Most days find me in a rush about town. Consequently, so far this month has been no exception. Starting the month of September with the Labor Day Holiday, my brother’s and grandson’s birthdays and a visit from Hurricane Irma this week, I can say things have been hectic. Nevertheless, when given the invitation for an impromptu birthday lunch for a dear friend, I can be ready in a flash! However, I will note Irma was still three days away from us when I had my luncheon last week. Needless to say, hurricane preparedness was our main topic of conversation.

Check One Off The Bucket List

Hello friends!

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.

My Casual Friday Style

The Short And Sweet Of Casual Friday Style

causal Friday style

Casual Friday style is much needed today.  Because there is a lot to do. It’s the Friday before the July 4th holiday weekend! So, how do you manage all the errands and holiday prep while still remaining stylish? Always, my best advise is to keep it simple. Since, casual Friday means casual dressing and that’s one less thing to attend to on that never ending to do list. Today’s outfit is as casual as it comes. A white pocketed tee shirt, cropped white girlfriend jeans, canvas boat shoes, a couple white accessories, a messy bun hairdo and I’m out the door.

At last, the long 4th of July holiday weekend has arrived!

Be safe, have fun and enjoy.

Happy 4th of July!

Rosemary

Simply Sunday: St Patrick’s Cathedral

Awe Inspiring

St-Patrick's-Cathedral

 This is St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City. Awe inspiring does not convey the beauty and majesty of this cathedral.

Because this post is Simply Sunday, I will be simply sharing my photos of this magnificent cathedral with you today.

While visiting the cathedral, my experience was one of reverence and peace. Silence in a crowd and the lighting of candles for loved ones touch my heart.

 I felt joy and gratitude.

That is my intention and that is my wish  for you on this Simply Sunday.

What can be cooler than wearing white in summer? Here in Florida it’s not uncommon for summertime temps to soar into the 90’s. How does one stay cool and fashionable at the same time? One of the best choices is to dress in all white summer styles. Then add a few accessories for some added pizzaz! Let’s take a look at three different looks combining the same turquoise accessories.
