Say It Loud

tortoise

I have to admit, I am a sucker for a statement necklace. It’s one accessory that can really make an outfit. Lately, I’ve been eyeballing tortoise style necklaces. But I haven’t been willing to pay $58 for one from Bauble Bar.  Luckily, I saw this one on sale for $19.99 at ILY. I ordered it immediately!

When it arrived it was much larger than I expected. I felt like this statement necklace might be saying too much. So it sat in my jewelry box all summer. Yet, when I looked at the necklace today I thought,” What’s the point of a statement necklace if it doesn’t make a statement? Might as well say it loud!” Continue reading

Taboo Shmaboo

stripes and dots

 

Who creates fashion taboos? And why are we often so willing to subscribe to them?  No white pants after labor day, no stripes with polka dots, no mixing black and brown… Over time, some of these fashion taboos have become the biggest fashion trends. That’s why the older I get, the more willing I am to throw caution to the wind. Especially when it comes to my fashion choices. In fact, if today’s outfit could talk, it would say, “taboo shmaboo!” 😛 Continue reading

Printed

corduroy

For some reason other than stripes and polka dots I own very few printed shirts. When I see other people wearing them they look so cute and versatile. But when I see printed shirts in the store they never look quite as appealing. Does that ever happen to you? You pass over something in the store that you just couldn’t imagine yourself wearing. Then you see the same style on someone else and it looks fantastic. Well this time I decided to buy it. Continue reading

Jimi Rigged

From as far back as I can remember I have been a music junkie.  And for a moment during high school I was all about Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. So when I saw this graphic T immortalizing Jimi I fell in love! So much so, that I drove 25 minutes to a neighboring city just to buy it. (I think I spent more in gas driving to the store than I spent on the shirt. LOL.) Continue reading

Pumpkin Spice

Pumpkin spice

 

This incalescent weather may be protesting fall’s arrival, but coffee drinks and pastry shops beg to differs. For lattes and muffins adorn the telltale sign that fall is officially here. “What is that sign?” you might ask. Why, pumpkin spice, of course. 🙂  I figured I’d follow suit by wearing my pumpkin colored peep-toe booties to spice up today’s outfit. Continue reading

Boho in Sacto

IMG_9443

It’s Farm-to-Fork Week in Sacramento. Which is the time we celebrate our 7,000 – 8,000 acres of boutique farms, our 50 regional farmers markets, and our restaurants that serve locally grown products. I must admit, I’ve gotten pretty spoiled by the quality of food here. Especially since I receive organic produce from local farms delivered right to my doorstep. So in the spirit of “America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital,”  I’m feeling a little boho today. Continue reading

A Classic

IMG_9459

I have been crazy busy lately. Between working 6 days a week and trying to enjoy every last drop of summer I am worn out. So before heading back to work tomorrow, I thought I’d have a nice low key day. Which is reflected in today’s casual look: The classic “jeans and white shirt.”  Continue reading
