Checked Blazer and White Boot

I am currently obsessed with these above assemblies.  I would like to recreate with an affordable version.  So I’m on a hunt for checked blazers and instead of white slips on above I like a pair of white bootie.   I would buy a blazer from Target and a pair of Booties from Forever 21.  What are your picks from below?

Fun Meets Function

10.2.2017

Sheath dresses are my to go for 9-5.  I am thankful for how easy to get them on and out of the door every morning.  As the same time I am tired of them.  Weekend comes I just want to wear something fun.  Tobi is one of the online stores that I often browse and inspire, clothes to be wear by women with confidence.

Tobi targets young adults, but still being 40 I want some fun pieces but age appropriate too.  It is about knowing your body and how to carry it, right?  These are the three styles I picked.  What do you think?

There are a hundred of styles for under $100 and is truly something for everyone.  Now you can enjoy 50% off sitewide at Tobi with code “ST50”.  Happy shopping.

Fall Stripes

9.14.2017

Don’t put your stripes away just yet, because I think stripes can be worn all year round.  This week, Boston has great weather.  We are in the 70-80’s with sun and crisp cool air.  And yet, it is New England so layering is always safe because the air can turn all of a certain.

Have you put your summer clothes away yet?

City Farm in Gingham Dress

9.6.2017

I know a lot of parents couldn’t wait to get their kids out of the house back to school. I didn’t have the same feelings.  Our summer was much more relaxed compared to the school year where the new routines have to be established for drop off/ pick up, activities, homework, and ahh papers and pile of papers. This past summer had gone so fast that I was not ready for fall.

Labor Day’s Deals and Steals

9.1.2017

Get your wallet ready because there are so many yummy sales over this long weekend.  I am partnering with a local/online boutique Femme Boutique Boston to feature this vest incorporating into my wardrobe.  Initially I was planning to wear it for my camping trip in Maine, but it didn’t happen.  Here I am wearing it for a date night, adding the sexiness with bare arms.  As the weather gets colder, you can style it over a striped top and a jean.  What do you think?  Beside my hair getting hard to style these days, do you like that  I styled this vest with a slip dress?

Volume Sleeves Gingham Dress

8.28.2017

We were away to Maine last weekend for our annual camping trip.  The sun and the air were still speaking summer.  We were nonstop from boiled lobster, clam strips, to lobster rolls, and corn on the cob.  Back to the reality today, the fall air has arrived to Boston.  It is sad to think about stacking away the summer fun pieces.  Gingham was big over the summer and I think Fall is about statement sleeves.  Arms will become a focal point with dramatic shapes and fresh details.  This dress has both.  It is a great transitional piece that I just added to my closet.

Maxi Skirting into Fall

8.23.2017

In my line of work, I encounter people that are less fortunate than I am everyday.  Yesterday two situations that hit me the most were a mom bailing her son out of trouble after he was in and out of jail.  The expression on her face stayed with me, sad and sorrowful.  I thought of my sons and of being in her shoes.  I sympathized with her suffering.  Whose mothers wouldn’t want their sons to be great?

Knit Top/Satin Skirt

8.17.2016

Mid-July while the weather is heating up and summer starts in full swing, retailers begin issue out their fall pieces.  Do you know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?  Well, I know it because I like shopping and get an alert about it.  This year, Nordstrom ran for 3 weeks and it seemed every fashion bloggers talking about the Anniversary Sale and their picks.   People were snatching up fall pieces at about 40% discount.  My wallet, of course, didn’t allow me to follow suit, but it was so tempting.

Back To School Primark

8.15.2017

Are you preparing for back to school?  The summer just flew by, isn’t it?  We are two weeks away from the start of the school year here in Boston.  This year we have not yet dipped out feet into the sand locally.  The weather has been weird, some like fall days, and it has never gotten hot enough.  Hopefully, we will have a chance for the remaining of August.
