Summer Nights

m- Summer is coming to a close. My littles are getting ready to return to school (not so little, sigh...). We could not let the summer come to an end without a few more BBQs with friends. As the nights become longer and the temperature drops, we still want to be outside comfortably. White denim still feels summery without the shiver of bare legs. Simple formula: white skinnies, denim shirt, leopard belt and my favourite pink earrings. What are you wearing to your next get together?

Going Shopping Today! Do you want to come?

m - I have the day to myself and I am heading into virtual land to pick up a few items for the fall. After looking at many magazines and websites, I have narrowed down what I am looking for. A few trends have resurfaced from last year and some cute additions.
1) Suede A line mini- Thank you, Taylor Swift, for bringing this back. This stylish starlet was out and about in her suede mini, last week. Although Taylor looks great in her very short skirt, I am on the hunt for a modest length that will permit things like: sitting, crossing legs, etc.
2) Lace up flats - This trend is everywhere! I am happy to see that flats continue to have a place in the fashion marketplace.
3) Soft striped dress - what, I found this one for $5! Buy now, it is cheaper then a pumpkin latte and will last longer.
4) Solid Cardigan - boyfriend shape, great for layering.
5) Sleeveless top with turtleneck - sounds like an oxymoron, right? I must be a little ahead of the trend because most of these sweaters are in the designer range and start at $550. If you find one, grab it, I am predicting this trend is going to be big with the mass markets in the coming months.

Found the items! Click on the images to pick up your must have trends and get ready for autumn.

Farrah, Jaqueline, Kate and m!

m - All of my childhood dreams have come true! These pants make me feel like one of Charlie's Angels! r was thinking about Cameron, Lucy and Drew, not me, I loved the originals then and still love them now! I am ready to fight crime and kick some ass in these pants.
I looked for these pants on line and couldn't find the exact pair, so here are similar ones:

Blue Belle

m- Honestly, Old Navy knocked it out of the park with their dress selection this season. I have never owned much from this store and generally, don't go into their retail locations, but their online selection was great and I can't believe how happy I am with my dresses (I bought four).They don't feel cheap and there are some details that I do not associate with this price point. The colour is quite bright and the fit is true to size.

Here are a few more options and all are on sale!

Drawstring Dress = Great Lunch Date

m- mmm...lunch. This dress is so comfy and ready for a proper sized meal. I was dismayed to find out that one of my super fit, gorgeous, friends wears Spanx-styled, long, undergarments, everyday. How does she eat? How can she possibly enjoy herself with Lycra and tugging and awareness of hemlines. Save it for a special day! Life is short! You're beautiful! Now, go buy a comfortable dress and meet me for lunch.

Thinking About Fall...

m- I prefer summer fashions and do not experience any giddiness when thinking about layering or spice lattes. After reading endless blogs, most of my virtual counterparts can't wait to throw on some heavy layers and pick apples. Not me, but I do understand that at some point I will need to wear heavier items and even (gasp) boots! I researched fall colours and have picked my favourite hue for the season -amethyst. A few additions here and there and I am ready:
Necklace-I have wanted a monogrammed necklace for the past two seasons and this fall it will happen. I prefer the warmth of gold for autumn.
Blouse - this blouse is available in amethyst
Burberry scarf - my stylish friend, L, came for a visit and so did her Burberry bag and now, I am on a Burberry kick, I have always wanted something Burberry and since I love the neckerchief trend, this silk scarf is perfect.
Quilted leopard bag -'nough said
Fringe booties.
How will you update your autumn wardrobe?
