the weekend: new boots!

Are you as addicted to boots as I am? I’m really not sure I can ever have too many! I picked up this pair of silvery gray Miista boots which will carry me right through the Fall. I decided to pair them with this lace dress to make it not look so formal. Perfect date night outfit!

the white midi skirt

So, I don’t know about you, but I’m not much of a white clothing person. Somehow that’s always when I spill something or drop my lipstick. But, I just loved this skirt when I saw it and thought it could at least make it one season! I paired it with a printed gray t-shirt for a casual twist keeping it comfortable and easy-going. Don’t be afraid to pair a more dressy skirt with a casual top! The yellow chandelier earrings add the punch of color I always love and pick up the yellow in my vintage bag. The bag is a great clutch which is large enough for day but still works at night…it also has a strap so, a bonus, if you’re using something like this during the day. I stacked gold bracelets and several statement rings to round out the outfit. The black heels pull the outfit together and make it a great work-ready option. I got these on sale during a recent trip and have been dying to wear them…this seemed like the perfect outfit. Enjoy!

the weekend: tour de france

Started off the weekend with a Tour de France breakfast gathering! Had a great morning with a few friends watching Stage 14 of the race, eating some yummy local goodies and getting a little dressed up…

If you ever get to Lancaster, must see stops would include Central Market for items like the fresh berries, yogurt, jams and granola. A favorite breakfast stop for Rob and I (see Rob’s debut in this blog below) on Saturdays is La Dolce Vita where we get freshly made biscotti, croissants and cookies topped off with a latte. El Jardin Flowers which is just around the corner from us made the breakfast shine with beautiful sunflowers!

Central Market



Just loving this easy stylish summer dress. It’s going to be a busy day with an early start to Central Market so this works perfectly! A look like this can carry you from day to night. Switch out the boots for either black boots or heels and change the bag for evening and you’re ready to go. I’ll toss a cropped sweater or jean jacket with it during the day if it’s a little cool.

Today’s busy schedule calls for easy movement and comfort. This bamboo skirt is just the piece to carry me through the day and maybe out tonight! The fit is perfect and it’s so soft and comfortable. I topped it with a simple sweater that is slightly boxy to balance the straight lines of the skirt. One of my go-to pair of booties will make meetings and deliveries a breeze today but still look pulled together. Funky earrings and layered necklace start off my jewelry. I finished with a vintage bracelet and handmade ring. I’m adding a brown leather day clutch to make the outfit easy and stylish. Happy Friday everyone!
