deliver me some stripes, studs and color

An outfit I wore to deliver an entire wardrobe to a client who does not have time to shop. I needed an outfit that travels well and moves with me once I reach my destination. This is also the type of outfit I typically wear for flying and long distance travel.

Taking my sleeveless summer dress and transitioning it into Fall by layering it with a long sleeve tee, tights and boots. This is one of the many reasons I love dresses and skirts; most of them can be all season if you layer them. 
Leave your summer dresses in your winter wardrobe unless of course they are white or crisp cotton, and get more wear out of them.
Here is how I wore the dress this summer.

a few pics from the weekend

Enjoyed the weekend with my sisters and our hubby's visiting winery's and having a blast. Not only are they my sisters they are also two of my best friends.

My sister Marilyn did a quick pose for me. I love her color combination of mustard, purple and green.

new day. new week . new hair.

Trying to do a few looks with bare legs before the extreme cold sets in. I love the look of knee socks with boots but love my tights as well. My absolute favorite brand of tights and socks are from Hue, which are also available at Dillards and Macy's. They are the perfect weight and last forever.

colored me happy, it's my day off

The perfect outfit for my day off which usually consists of running errands, catching up on emails, phone calls and other office related things, which then essentially becomes half a day off. It's a good thing I LOVE my job.

a bit of cheetah

Loving the cheetah details on my new Essential Shirt. You can bet you will always see these sleeves cuffed. Sometimes it's the smallest details that make me love an outfit or purchase an item.
