I get soooo many magazines, I barely have the time or energy to flip through them. So many of the fashion mags feature outrageous outfits I (and most others) would never wear. I do really like Real Simple, though. It has articles on a variety of organizational topics but also helpful beauty and fashion sections with wearable -and affordable - outfits. Travel, family and self-help articles too. Very well done!
With Memorial Day's arrival, comes the official time to break out the summer shoes. I found these beauties in a recent online shopping spree. These statement shoes has such style that I can't wait to wear each one! ~ Cathy.

Ah, the 80's. Big hair, even bigger shoulder pads, lots of eye makeup, and polyester everywhere. Great music, though! Luckily we captured this favorite look on film so we could laugh about it later. I can almost hear the "Flashdance" soundtrack in the background...or is it "Flock of Seagulls?" ~ Pat.
I recently posted about an awesome fragrance that I had discovered. But oh my... this Jo Malone with the wood sage and sea salt scent is just absolutely fabulous! I have never smelled anything like it and know it will be a favorite for years to come. ~ Cathy.

It's the season for graduations, weddings and celebrations of all kinds. I absolutely love this gorgeous and feminine dress. And check out these sassy t-strap shoes. How perfect would this be for most any dress up occasion?

This relic family photo from the 1950's features a two piece swimsuit! Styles have certainly changed, but I bet this was considered quite fashionable in its day. I actually really like it as it seems quite comfortable and not too revealing. Surf's up! ~ Pat.
It's warming up, time to bring out the sundresses. I am very much a pants person, but I decided to invest in a few cool dresses for a recent Florida vacation. This peasant style dress worked really well as a beach cover-up too. I plan on working my new purchases into my everyday wardrobe when back in hot humid Houston! Stay cool ~ Pat.
How do you usually dress on Fridays? Do you have a buttoned up type of office environment or can you just go the casual route? I found this dress while scrolling on a website lately and can see it working for all sorts of occasions. From a casual work setting to a day of shopping or having lunch with friends. I would pair it with some Stan Smith sneakers or a brown sandal with a chunky heel like these here. What do you think? ~ Cathy.

I'm a huge fan of most anything Italian, so I jumped at the chance a few years ago to meet heartthrob singer Matteo Setti at an event in Houston. I wore a black cocktail dress and fitted blazer from White House/Black Market - which I still have, of course. Such a fun evening! ~ Pat.
Did you have a favorite scent when you were a teenager? One of my very first fragrance memories was of the oh so potent Jungle Gardenia. Anyone else love that? Long ago, I graduated to more sophisticated scents, but I never lost my love of the lush gardenia smell. How great to find a gorgeous and subtle scent like this one from Aerin. I think it will be a perfect choice for the summer months. ~ Cathy.

Today is one of those days that has a little bit of sun, but not too much, with 75f weather - perfect for a summer maxi dress. This one is a CAbi with Boden tan wedges. Enjoy your Sunday :)
Are you going out on Mother's Day? It's such fun to get a bit dressed up and go out for a late lunch on a gorgeous day. Doesn't this dress make you think of sipping chilled champagne and eating oysters? I just love it! ~ Cathy.
I don't know about you, but I am always on the search for certain products. A great foundation, eye crème, mascara...And when I find the "one", I am always thrilled, well at least for a while. This little product does a bang up job as an eye liner. It glides on effortlessly and stays in place. All sorts of colors to choose from to create a very natural look up to a glamorous cat eye. It's a winner! ~ Cathy.
