The Pink Palace
As Hollywood As It Gets
This past week has been an amazing adventure! I’ve seen so many sights and visited so many places in Southern California. And I can’t wait to share them all with you in the coming weeks. First, on my list, I must share my stay at the world famous “Beverly Hills Hotel“.
Hello October – Goodbye September
It’s Time To Start Dressing For 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.
Outfit Of The Day
The Simple 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.
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!
Always, remember that you can follow me on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Instagram.
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.
