Almost Didn't Happen


These boots arrived at my door late Saturday evening while I was visiting my granddaughter and family. I got home so late I didn't get to open the package and then Sunday came and we were so busy running around shopping and then I cleaned the condo and put pizza dough together to start rising and one thing led to another until I wasn't sure I would get pictures for a post today (Monday). But I finally had time to open the package and put together an outfit and get some indoor pictures taken. If I hadn't been so in love with the boots I might not have even done a post but I wanted you to see them. 

OMG they are so comfortable and cute. They have a lower heel than I normally wear and the fabric on the legs is so perfect! Just delicious! I wore a light weight sweater that was loose and had fun sleeves that are bells with a tie. The ties are sewn on so you don't have to fuss with them.  It also has a cute split up the back that is fun. I put on a pair of skinny jeans and grabbed my leopard clutch to complete this outfit.

My nails weren't done and a mess because of cleaning and cooking and I had to try to pull my hair up to get it in some kind of order but you understand I am sure that it was urgent I get this post up! Duh, I'm such a nut! Ha Ha!


My husband and I are having so much fun here in Phoenix. Our condo is small and nothing fancy but it is perfect for us to spend our time doing other things rather taking care of it. We've been hiking the nearby mountains and I have been getting runs in every other day. I still cook most of our meals because I love to cook but we get to eat on our patio. We have lovely neighbors from Canada that also spend most of their winters here.  

I get to see my granddaughter often because they only live about 5 miles away. She is a delight and I never could have understood the love for a granddaughter until she came along. t's all good. We're spending Thanksgiving Day with our family and my heart is full of joy! I am so thankful and not just on Thanksgiving day but everyday!

The Business Of Life With Misook


I've spent my share of a career working in universities, as a director of education, associate professor and associate dean. I know what it means to dress for success. I have learned that looking professional helps me feel professional and that people respond better when I am in a professional state of mind. 

Now that I work at home I still have times when a professional look is needed for meetings and events. Misook meets all my needs in that regard with classic but modern professional dresses, jackets, tops, slacks and skirts.

This jacket and pants will be on repeat for me due to their beautiful style, quality, and easy care. The details are my favorite part of these pieces. The jacket has zippers on the sleeves and the pants have zippers on the ankles. The brilliant blues in this tweed style jacket are striking and show vibrantly in the sunlight. The fabric of the pants and jacket is a beautiful knit fabric that is machine washable, wrinkle, fade, and stretch resistant, breathable with no cling and a silky hand. I am truly in love!

Read more below about how I styled the pants for a casual evening at home and the jacket for a night out with friends. 

Casual Evening At Home

I don't know about you but I like to relax the minute I get home from a busy day. The pants for this post are pull on pants and as soft and comfy as any leisure pants you will find. So when I get home, I would leave them on and change into a more casual top and a pair of flats or slippers. For my evening look below, I used a denim jacket as my top, slipped on my favorite pair of leopard flats and added a scarf to snuggle in as night falls. I mean, really? How cute is this look?


There are times, at the end of the week when I like to celebrate successes with friends and colleagues. In this case I would wear the same jacket but change into a pair of dark jeans and tee. Casual shoes and a clutch for my lip stick and I am out the door!
