It’s A “Boho” Kind Of Day!

Are you confused with the term boho chic?  No need to be, it’s simple, comfortable, uniquely elegant and fun to wear clothing. Many of the elements of boho-chic dressing because popular with the baby boomers in the late 1960’s and has been recurring in varying fashions since.  “Boho” influences are bohemian and hippie along with “Chic” which is translated to mean stylish or elegant. So is it any wonder that we have fallen in love with “Boho Chic” once again!

Outfits Don’t Have To Be New To Be Current!

 Fashion Investment Pieces Are Timeless!

Because an outfit is fashionable it doesn’t mean that it has to be new. By purchasing good quality, well made items a basic and lasting wardrobe can be easily built. Consequently, a summer material such as  linen is an excellent example of this practice. Today’s featured outfit from my closet is nine years old.

Casual Friday

The Short And Sweet Of Casual Friday

causal-friday

Casual Friday 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!

A Shirt Dress On A Rainy Afternoon

Sunshine and Rainy Days

The Little Black Shirtdress

Do you dress for style or do you dress for the weather? Because, sometimes stylish dressing for the weather can be a bit challenging. Usually summertime heat and bright vibrant colored clothing quickly come to mind as the typical choice in choicing one’s outfit. In the meanwhile, there are those mornings when the temps are rising, the sun is shining and yet thunder claps in the distance. Finally, the heat will build and the afternoon rains will come. In this case my choice is a sleeveless cotton shirtdress.

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.

Life In Yoga Pants

Life Is Good

Life is good and even better when it is experienced wearing yoga pants!

Why?

Because, the older we get the more important it is to stay active. The health and beauty benefits of regular exercise are amazing. Lower blood pressure, stronger bones, better balance and flexibility are only a few of the benefits of staying active. And healthy life style is my goal in life. Although adhering to a regular schedule of exercise is challenging to say the least. Some of the ways of  being active in my life include walking, biking and yoga. I could very easily walk and ride my bike in various forms of attire. But I have found that once I have dressed explicitly for exercise I tend to do it. So I dress in my yoga pants ( the new trendy term is Athleisure wear) and I know that I will do some type of exercise. I’m a lot like my dogs, Jake and Rex. Once they see me put on my walking shoes they are determined that it is walk time and we are going to walk. Guilt is such a great motivator. So if you happen to see me in my yoga pants you know I still have exercise on my to do list for the day. My final thought on the subject is that yoga pants are so darn comfortable it is so easy to stay in them all day long.

Thanks for stopping!
