Red Hot Summer Style

The Outfit

I love red so much for summer and in this outfit I added skinny raw hem jeans and wedge sandals. Nothing really too original. To make it all pop I added a leopard bag. Big hoop earrings and a watch and that was it. This was before I started wearing my watch on my right wrist (see post here). The top is an off the shoulder in a light weight fabric so it hangs nicely. Everything is a few seasons old and still standing the test of time trend wise. 

What's Happening

Where is the summer going? We have been so busy I don't feel like I've been able to enjoy the full summer season. And now we have fires all over the northwest so we can barely go outside without choking from the smoke. This is fairly normal for this time of year here in Idaho. But it will last until September at least so summer spent outdoors is about over. 

We finally visited our new Starbucks. It is on the second story and has a balcony that wraps around two sides. It is really nice! 

These pictures make me see how much I need a hair cut, I am really liking it shorter these days. Luckily I have an appointment in couple of weeks. 

I'm really excited because I have some new fall items arriving soon to style and share with you. I don't see any real new trends yet but the soft cozy and comfortable look will be big. Lots of warm cardigans, soft jeans and cute booties look to be the norm. I love the fall most of all the seasons and fall clothes are so fun.


I wanted to share with you a new group board on my Pinterest! I love Pinterest as many of us do but it seems as in many things, it is more represented by the young and fabulous in the fashion and style genre. I am moving to make a change and created a group board titled Style Wise. Check it out here. It was just created and needs some more inspiration so if you are a fashion and style blogger and would like to be a contributor let me know via I would love to have more Style Wise women help me show brands and society our value and relevance!


On this past Saturday's edition of "Move It Or Lose It" segment, I talked about breaking up with exercise. It was a fun post and well received. Check it out if you haven't already!


I didn't shop the Nordstrom Anniversary sale this year, I wasn't seeing anything really new. I did find some amaing things at the Rack so I added links to my finds. An amazing white shirt with fringe tail, my favorite jeans both on sale as well as a camo jacket and a pale pink and cream shearling jacket also both deeply discouted to my Boutique and Chatter page here. So check it out and all the other noise on my blog. 

I've been bringing in new clients for blog designing and so enjoying the process. So if you are thinking about starting a blog and need a designer give me a holler! I've had many clients that already have blogs but want my phase two and three services. More details are on my Services page here.

I think I am going to offer a free course on starting up your own blog so if you have interest let me know and I'll put you on my list for the first course. More details to come.

Thanks for stopping by!



I'm proud to participate in the following link ups and am always looking for more! I love to start my day checking in with them and seeing what everyone is doing and connecting! I hope you will join us HERE!
