Mustard Please

mustard 3.JPG

The Scoop

The weekend here was so nice and I am grateful to enjoy it. Low 70s and sunny. When we are here in Arizona we walk almost every where we go. Our favorite grocery store (Sprouts) is next to a Starbucks so we walk there almost daily to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables and then we pick up a coffee on the way back. It is about 3 miles total trip so lots of days it is our workout. We are really into it with our backpacks and sneakers. Ha ha.

I love to cook so much so we don’t eat out often but there is a little sports grill about a mile away that we walk to once in a while for fish tacos. We really try to work in fun with exercise every single day. I try to cook following the Mediterranean diet which is easy when you love fruits, vegetables, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oil, etc. like we do. I also can have a small glass of wine each day when I follow the guidelines.

My Look

I am really loving all the mustard items in the stores lately. I have always loved this color and have a lot of it in my closet but it hasn’t always been easy to find. It is a color that some love and some don’t. I am in the I do camp. I found this top and decided that floral sandals would be so cute with the stripes in the top. I wore my Lucky Brand jeans which are my favorites right now. They are skinny’s but I went up a size for a more relaxed look and feel. To complete the look I carried my mustard back pack and I wore a Kendra Scott necklace.

AG Jeans

blue 11.JPG

The Scoop

I have been MIA for a couple of posts because we have been doing a few condo projects. I am done now and switching my focus on other things. We try to do a few little updates each year when we come to stay and this year we did some painting and got new carpet. The weather has turned fabulous so now I am ready to work on the blog and more importantly spend time taking care of myself.

I want to really get serious about my runs and weight lifting and I want to drop at least five pounds but mostly I want to feel strong and fit! I was revisiting some of my fitness posts and thought I would do a series of updates for spring. They are all still so relevant and help motivate me and I hope others too. My husband is a research scientist and helps me weed through and understand the current studies and I find it so interesting and valuable as I age and try to stay fit. So I’ll be working on what we are learning and doing for our health.

blue 10.JPG

My Look

So this is a fun look. I love this style of top but can’t always pull it off but is was just so comfortable I went with it. It is an over sized sort of baby doll style. The style and colors made me start thinking spring too! I wore this top with a pair of designer jeans that I got on sale and thought I would see what all the buzz was about. My verdict? I love these AG jeans (The Farrah Skinny Ankle) a high rise skinny ankle style but would never pay full price. Since these were on sale they are worth it. I bought a few other designer brands and will share my thoughts as I style them. Over all they are nice but you can get a lot of lower priced jeans that are just as nice in every way in my opinion. My favorites right now are Lucky Brand jeans ( Lolita Skinny)! I sized up in all these jeans for a more relaxed skinny look. It almost gives them a straight leg look which is the latest trend right now. I wore a pair of wedge sandals with this look and carried my new favorite back pack that is a fabulous mustard color!

How I Do Monochromatic

The Scoop

I think one of the easiest looks to put together is a monochromatic look. For this post I styled two, one in black and one in blue. One of the things I like to do when putting together a monochromatic look is use texture. It can give a look more depth and interest. So I’m not afraid to mix sheer, with suede or other types of fabric that have opposing textures.

Look One

For this outfit I wore all black. The top is a sheer fabric with a underlay and it is an off shoulder top. I love the string around the neck to keep it all in place. I wore black slacks in a soft fabric and suede pumps that have a ruffle accent. To complete the look I carried my leopard clutch. I mean it can’t get much more simple, right?

I learned a little trick this past year that I can’t wait to share! I order pumps a half size larger than my normal size and they are 100 times more comfortable! I guess this is a Megan Markle trick too but it works!

blue 1.JPG

Look Two

This look is all in dark blue, even my shoes! The top is a knit cold shoulder with some fun detail on the yoke and bell 3/4 sleeves. I wore dark blue jeans and dark blue wedge shoes and then my leopard clutch to complete the look.

See how I do the cold shoulder look in the winter here, here and here.

Boyfriend Jeans

alll denim.JPG

Got Casual?

The Scoop

I went shopping the other day to see what was new in the shops and find inspiration for the blog. I was inspired for a few minutes but still struggling with feeling any fashion vibes. I keep trying so hang in there with me and maybe I’ll snap out of it.

I went to a shop that I have been buying clothes from since I was in my twenties. It’s called Maurices. It is close enough to walk to from our condo and never overloaded with clothes so you don’t feel overwhelmed. It was just the place for me to relax, try on some things, chat with the nice staff and find inspiration.

I saw this denim shirt and although I have several, it was fresh, a fabulous color and perfect fit. Then I came across button fly boyfriend jeans that are “fall right off loose” and I thought they made a great couple, so Bingo, they came home with me. They were both 50% off too.

Once I got back to the condo, I pulled another pair of boyfriend jeans out of my closet and put together a few outfits with different tops and shoes.

Look One

These are the jeans and shirt from Maurices. I wore my orange pumps and carried my leopard clutch. I wore a statement necklace that if you read my blog much you know I have had for probably 20 years. It is a one of a kind and sort of my signature necklace.

Look Two

I am wearing a shirt tied at the waste and a pair of Marc Fisher wedges in a deep blue color. Again with the leopard bag. I wore my bar necklace that has my grandma name, “Coco” and silver earrings.

all red 8.JPG

Look Three

These boyfriend jeans are several years old from “Nasty Gal.” I remember when I ordered them I was embarrassed to pick them up at the post office due to the name. But they are fabulous jeans! I wore a coral striped shirt, carried my Ark bag and wore another pair of Marc Fisher wedges. For jewelry I wore a Chico’s necklace that I have had a long time.

Comfort Zone

comfort 12.JPG

Look

de jour

the scoop

After the overalls look from Monday which I am still not sure how I feel about I dressed for today staying in my comfort zone. This look is probably the type of style that I am most comfortable wearing. I love the relaxed fit of the flared trouser jeans, the crispness of the white long-sleeved white tee and the classic look of the navy and white cardigan. I wore a pair of tan booties and carried my leopard clutch. For jewelry I wore a pair of white earrings and my initial necklace. Everything in this outfit is old, like many years old except the white tee. I have had these trouser jeans (I have three pairs) for probably five years. The sweater is that old at least maybe more. My booties are four years old and my bag is a couple of years old. It just shows that when you buy classic pieces they never go out of style and are worth the investment.

Let me know what are you most comfortable wearing? Do you ever go outside your style box?

I’m linking my exact necklace and bag as well as similar tees and jeans.

comfort 10.JPG

My Look

My jeans were purchased at the Loft, my tee from the Rack and my cardigan is INC from Macy’s. My booties were bought at Nordstrom, the brand is bp. My Clare V bag was also purchased at Nordstrom. My earrings came from Target last winter and my necklace is from the Rack. I will see how many of these items I can find or at least something really similar to link for creating your own look!

Overalls

overalls 12.JPG

Fun with

overalls

The Scoop

Bare with me while I have a little fun with fashion. I have been wanting a pair of overalls now for about a year. I used to wear them and found them to be comfortable. I wanted a pair that was fit (not too baggy), had something distinctive about them and were cropped. This pair met all my requirements. I wish I would have sized down one more size but these will be fine. I can see so many ways to style them all through spring and summer.

My Look

This is a look I would wear hanging around the house, or exploring festivals or flea markets. I wore my overalls with a white tee and styled them with two different shoes, a pair of casual heels and a pair of platform sneakers. I carried my orange cross body bag to finish the look.

Arizona Vibes

The Scoop

I’v been in Arizona for a week now and starting to get into a groove. It has been hectic, both my dogs got sick and it took some work to get the condo in shape. The weather has been record breaking cold but still warmer than Idaho. We have worked in a few hikes and I have started running more consistently. The dogs are all better now and today will be in the upper 60s so I see fun in my near future!

Create Your Own Look

Here are some fabulous New Takes on an old trend!

So many sales on OTKs right now. I am drooling over the first pair. I love that the heel is brown! It’s such a fabulous contrast!

Give me all the orange bags! I have more than my share of orange bags but these are so closet worthy!

I have bralettes in so many colors and wear them almost daily.

leo+2.jpg

Creativity is intelligence having fun.

_ Albert Einstein

My Look

I have to say I am so bored with fashion right now. I have been for most of the year but winter fashion holds very little intrigue for me. I am not sure if I am changing or if the fashion world is in a rut but I am leaning more toward sweat pants and sweat shirts these days. I’m trying to live by the words of Albert Einstein by keeping the fun in fashion and maybe that will help me over my hump!

One thing fun about only being here in Arizona for a few months each year is everything I leave in my closet feels new again. I didn’t remember leaving the pieces of this look here but thought it created a nice sort of Arizona vibe. My top is a thrift shop find, a Michael Kors brand. It is sheer and has a tie at the neck and buttons up the front. I wore a black lace bralette underneath. I wore it with dark blue leggings and these fun OTK boots. To top it off my third piece was this fun orange bag. It is my favorite bag right now because of the color and the over the shoulder style which makes it perfect for roaming around town exploring the beautiful city of Phoenix.

Sunshine On My Shoulders Makes Me Happy

black dress 8.JPG

the scoop

So disregard my hair in these pictures, I didn’t feel like messing with it and I was really just trying on outfits for our Christmas party this weekend. I want something fun, different and warm since we will be in the mountains. Above all since I am hosting, I have to be comfortable. I have tried on several things and still haven’t come up with what I want but I did like this look so I thought I would share it. I would wear this if I were not hosting but as a working host I need less fuss.

We got our final RSVP list and it looks like between 35 and 40 guests so we decided to ask our pianist to play the piano for us again this year. I had thought we would just play music but having a local musician has become kind of a tradition. I am putting real pine trees on each side of the front door and using real wreaths to decorate a couple of windows and laser lights to decorate the front of the house. It will all be very simple but festive.

these boots

Hands down these are my favorite boots for this season. I wanted to buy them last season but they went out of stock so when I saw them on sale late this fall I snapped them up. They go with everything. They are out of stock but there is a new version that I will link. The thing I love the most about them is the wood heels.

black dress 11.JPG

lbd

I took my little black dress that is sleeveless and added the warmest brightest sweater I had. I think yellow is a fun out of the box color to add to a holiday party look. Next I added my boots because I love the contrast of the brown boot with the black dress. I carried my leopard clutch that is probably the best investment I have ever made on a bag because I use it a lot and it is holding up perfectly. Plus this bag is the perfect neutral to go with everything. I wore a necklace that is several years old to add a little gold bling and that was that. Fun, warm, comfortable and a little out of the box.

create your own look

I’m linking my exact dress including the long sleeve version. I’m also linking my boots (this years version on sale now) and I think the same boots in black are fabulous also on sale! I’m linking sweater options, a pretty yellow one but wouldn’t the red be perfect for the holidays. And the purple is a trending color right now that will take you through spring and is so different and pretty for the season. I’m linking my exact bag too.

Free People Meets Ugg in Le Boutique

free people 13.JPG

le Boutique . . .

the scoop

I have a little room in my home that was going to be an office. It has french doors and is perfectly square with one big window. It is only 8’ by 8’ so I decided to make it le boutique. I set it up like a little store with a big mirror in the corner with stainless hanging racks and stainless shelves around the room. I need to change out the light fixture but otherwise it is the perfect inspiration room for a blogger. I put all my new and favorite things in this room and plan outfits for blog posts. One day I would like to do little videos showing my fashion favorites. As soon as I get the lighting right I’ll show you more.

free people 8.JPG

Free People Meet Ugg

the two were meant to be.

my look

My fair isle sweater is by Free People and old. I have it in cream too because I love the coziness and look of an over sized fair isle sweater. I just got these fabulous Ugg hiking boots and thought they would make a cute outfit with the sweater. As usual I bounced around my house like Tigger trying to find good lighting for pictures. I got one outside but it was too dark and I wasn’t staying outside for more since it was only 16 degrees. I wore an old pair of skinny jeans and this look was complete. My only jewelry was silver big hoop earrings.

create your own look

I have the first three pairs of boots and love them. I added options for ideas!

Red and Black Buffalo Check

red 1.JPG

the scoop

Nothing says cozy like a fuzzy pullover, especially when it is in red and black buffalo check. We got our first snow here in the Boise area and it is friggin cold! Our highs this week are not going to get above freezing. I can’t wait until the end of the month when we move like gypsies and head to Arizona for a few months. Meanwhile I will enjoy the winter weather and find the best in my environment. I’m getting to eat more to fuel my body, wear all my fun winter boots and cozy up in the house with my hubby and puppies.

We’re hosting our annual Christmas party on the 15th so I am planning for that. We hold it at our mountain house so I haven’t decorated or anything there yet. I am keeping it simple this year with fresh wreaths and laser lights. Instead of having a piano player we are going to play soft music in the back ground. It always seems hard to talk over a piano playing although we did love the festive element having a piano playing in the background provided. But I want to change things a little this year. We provide the drinks and everyone brings a dish so it will be an easy event to plan. Can’t wait to see everyone!

my look

The star of the show for this look is my top. It is one I got a few weeks ago when I shopped at Walmart. This is the cutest top too. So warm and cozy and just the right weight so you can wear it around the house without getting too hot. It comes in three colors and I love them all. I wore this top with skinny jeans and an old pair of over the knee boots that I pushed down for a slouchy boot look. The boots were the second pair of over the knee boots I ever got and they are not tight around the thigh so they want to slip down anyway. You could wear this top with leggings and sneakers or lounge pants and slippers. It is really versatile!

red 4.JPG

create your own look

This top is on sale for 25.99 and I really want it in more colors. It is a perfect everyday top but you could really dress it up for a party too. It is an over sized fit and tts (I am wearing s). Showing all colors below.

Hands down my favorite brand for skinny jeans is 7 For All Mankind the Guenevere style. Linking those but look at the hem of the second pair SO CUTE. I always get my jeans at the rack on sale.

don’t forget the boots

Slouchy or boots that just hit the knee are so fun this season and something different than the over the knee. Mine are old Micheal Kors but I’m linking some fabulous boots that are slouchy or just hit the knee and all on sale. You may have a pair of over the knee boots that you can push down like I’m doing in this look.

Ugg Style

ugg

Boots

the scoop

I have two pairs of Uggs and a third on the way. One pair of slippers and these fabulous snow boots and a pair I just ordered on sale that are perfect for everyday in cooler weather. I love me some Ugg! With this brand I have to be selective because I don’t love all the styles but when I find a style I like I really like them a lot! I always get them when they are on sale and they are super high quality so you get your money’s worth in wear over the years.

my look

These boots look good with so many things but I decided to wear them with leggings. I went with a black column which I say, when in doubt, start with a column. You all know what I mean by a column. You wear a top and pants in the same color creating a column type of look. From there you build and create so many fun looks. I added these boots and a vest in a black and white almost hounds tooth design. For more warmth I topped it off with a beanie.

Column

just a pair of black leggings with a black tee.

create you own look

I’ll start with the boots. I got mine on sale a while back and adore them. The second pair I am linking I just ordered and are 33% off. These styles are really trending right now. I’m linking other options too.

complete your look

I am loving vests this season. They are a great third piece for any outfit. See more about the third piece here. I love them to be just a little fitted to accentuate the waist. You can get these for fabulous prices at Ross, Marshals, TJMax, Target, etc.

To create a column (see more about column dressing here and here) try basic black leggings and tees. I’m linking my exact tee. It comes in many colors and I wear it in black or white several times a week. My favorite leggins are Zella and I’m linking them also. I prefer the shorter ones. See more outfits with leggings here (in leather) here and here. And don’t forget to have fun with beanies! I have a few of theses linked and love them. See how I wear them here, here and here.

My Walmart Haul

cozy 14.JPG

A Few Things

from Walmart

the scoop

I kind of hate Walmart. What they have done to the family dairy farmers and the way they shut down small town America really makes me mad. I know because I lived in a town where they run every local business out until now they are about the only store left. And that is only the beginning of the complaints I have about them. Until recently I’ve barely set foot in a Walmart for years. But the damage is done, they are too big to beat and now many communities are dependent on them. So when I started seeing a lot of things being shown on YouTube and other blogs I thought I would go in and see what I could find.

I found if you look closely you can find some fun things for good prices. I also found that there are some really poor quality and sloppy products. So check everything out closely. I bought a package of boxers for sleeping in a size small and one pair was a large. I also got a cute lounge wrap that had a big hole in it. In this post I will show you some fun finds that would be great gifts for others or yourself. Just check each item out before you pull the tag.

first look

This 3/4 zipper faux Sherpa top is so cute! The one I grabbed was well made. It has a soft inside so can be worn as a top but you can layer it too. It comes in several colors and is a very popular style. I wore it with skinny jeans and boots. I sized up to a medium so I think they run small.

I couldn’t find my exact one online but I think they are in stores still. I found some fabulous options online that I didn’t see in the stores. I’m linking those.

ugg 5.JPG

Total

lounge style

second look

I am always looking for comfy joggers that hold up to lots of wear. These fit those requirements perfectly. They are true to size and so comfortable. I wore them with a thermal top, lace bralette and Ugg slippers.

Linking same pants with two types of leg openings. I couldn’t find exact tee online but I think they are still in stores. The brand for both is Time and Tru. Linking a couple other thermal tops though. Also linking my exact slippers.

camo 7.JPG

third look

This is a fun look but the only thing from Walmart is the thermal tee. The vest just set the tee off right. I added pair of flares and this was my favorite look of the week.

For this look I am linking same jeans (on sale) and top (the top is limited in sizes but might be in stores). I’m linking cute vests and other thermal top options. You can find similar vests in all the stores these days.

Two Knee Boots

black 16.JPG

Sweaters and Boots

Sweaters and Jeans C/O @DG2HSN

the scoop

The title says two knee boots because I wanted to show you two different pairs of knee boots in this post. One budget friendly and one at a higher price point. I thought it would be fun to try them out and see if you could see the difference. I could tell but both had good points and bad points.

One pair is nice quality leather with beautiful stitching and one is totally not leather and feels cheap but looks ok and was actually more comfortable. They both are perfect for different occasions. I would wear the less expensive pair for everyday activities or really casual events. I wouldn’t worry about them getting dirty or scuffed. The other pair I would wear for parties and nicer occasions where I knew I wouldn’t be beating them up too much.

The boots of the season are the knee boots and seem to sell out fast. I like them because they are easier get off and on than the over the knee boots. I’ve had my eye on them since last winter when I started seeing them and thought they would be the next fun boot.

black 17.JPG

my look

I’m also sharing in this post more of DG2 items sent to me last week in a press kit. Two fabulous sweaters and a pair of but lifting jeans. They are all classic, very well made of quality material and great basics for the closet. The sweaters one in black and one in cream have ruffle detailing around the wrists and at the hem. They are not itchy at all, I can’t stand itchy sweaters and they are a medium weight so not too warm and not at all bulky. The jeans have a layer of fabric on the inside in the back that lifts and supports the rear end. It really works but you don’t feel all trussed up at all. They have a high waist and are very comfortable. I have worn them almost everyday since I got them a week ago.

I wore the black sweater with a statement necklace and my slouchy boots. I wore the cream sweater with a leopard scarf and the other pair of knee boots. The jeans were worn in both looks. I will be wearing these items often this winter.

cream 17.JPG

My Sam Edleman (worm with cream sweatwer) boots are sold out already but I found a similar pair in the same brand to link as well as the pair I got from Target (worn with the black sweater). I also linked same sweater (it comes in many colors), same jeans and a leopard scarf option. You can find DG2 items on HSN.com.

Mixing Colors

color 15.JPG

the scoop

I am such a fan of color. I like a nice neutral look but color makes my heart sing. And what better time than fall to mix things up with vibrant colors. So in this look I mixed oxblood and mustard!

my look

I’m wearing a leather jacket in oxblood that I got from ASOS several years ago. It is probably my favorite leather jacket ever. My top is old too with a mock turtleneck and slightly belled sleeves from Nordstrom. Jeans are my all time favorite flares from Express and booties are so old I can’t remember where they came from. My bag is one you see me carry all the time, an investment piece that was worth it. It is Claire V.

New Way to Wear a Scarf

black 9.JPG

the scoop

The next couple of posts will be pictures from our stay in the mountains. We are back in the city now and I have tons of things going on. It’s Halloween, I have neighbor who is now my walking partner and a new friend to meet for coffee. Plus we are hosting Thanksgiving here this year so I am planning for that.

black 7.JPG

my look

I was watching “Hot and Flashy” one of my favorite You Tubers and saw her style a scarf in a new way. I loved it so much I had to try it. I have worn it sort of like this before but I had the scarf tucked into the belt all the way around. I love it so much more with the back not tucked in.

I always think of the scarf as the star of the show when I wear it, so nothing much else is going on in this look. I have the basic back drop of jeans and a black tee. The belt is a little blingy but I loved how it looked.

Everything I am wearing is old so I won’t try to link up things right now. Maybe tonight I will add some to my Like To Know It. All you have to do is download the app and follow me for the latest posts. I think most of us have all the elements in our closets anyway.

  • We sold one of our airplane hangars so we have to run out there today to get the last of our stuff out of it.

  • Since we drive right by Costco on the way I am sure we will stop there.

  • It’s Halloween and I can’t wait to give out candy to all the little Trick or Treaters!

  • My new walking partner and I will be taking a walk in our beautiful neighborhood.

  • And it’s basically November now so it’s time to start planning holiday events!

  • Next week I have some new things to show you. I had a surprise PR package on my doorstep the other day full of fabulous clothes. I love to get surprises like that!

Something to read . . .


When we were moving things this summer, I found this old copy of To Kill A Mockingbird in our library. I could hardly remember what it was about so kept it out to read.

This book according to a 2008 poll was voted greatest novel of all time. See the article here.

I found it so interesting to see all the different book covers with new editions. This one is my copy from around 1988.

Thanks for stopping by!

Peace!
