I’ve been going through my closet and pulling out my clothes from last summer. Do you ever look at your clothes and wonder what you wore? I do!

I can’t purchase all new clothes but I do have some basic pieces I’d like to update with some accessories for the coming summer season.

What are some pieces I could add that would update my summer look? I’m glad you asked!

Here are 5 Ways to Update Your Summer Look that will have you looking stylish and chic this summer.

1. A Summer Tote- I’ve been seeing these pop up everywhere and I love a summer tote. They carry all my essentials and I usually buy one and carry it most of the summer. This year I purchased a tote from Stella & Dot .

4. Sunglasses- We’ve talked about trends in sunglasses so pick out a trendy pair like these aviator sunglasses from JCPenney because you’ll be wearing them a lot this summer!

5. A Summer Scarf- You know how much I love wearing scarfs and summer is still a good time to add them to your wardrobe. The fabric is light and can add color to any outfit.

Beauty for the Heart~~Mornings are my favorite time of the day. I’m up before the sun and in the quiet of the morning I see God’s handiwork as the sun starts to come up.

Psalm 24:1 reminds me, “The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.”

Have a blessed day!

MNG by Mango at JCPenney

Sometimes I’m surprised by a brand of clothing. That was the case with MNG by Mango at JCPenney

My sister and I went shopping before our trip to San Francisco. I was helping her pick out some clothes and we happened to look at the the MNG by Mango brand.

I had never looked at it before and at first glance, I didn’t think I would like it. But we decided to try a few things on and surprisingly I loved it!

MNG by Mango is a contemporary collection with very reasonable prices.

It’s a casual look and I’m wearing my David Kind glasses. I like that the blouse is long in the back too. :-)

Spring Fashion Trends You Can Wear


It’s 4 degrees here this morning but for some reason, I have spring fashion trends on my mind. I love to look ahead and see what we’ll be wearing in a few short months!

They say that fashion is cyclical and everything eventually comes back in fashion. It looks like the nineties are back in full swing this runway season.

Here’s a preview of the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Spring 2014.  It’s a pairing of soft pastels with vivid brights to create a colorful equilibrium.

Fashion Color Report 2014


Remember, just because something is on trend, it doesn’t mean we have to wear it. It’s important to know what looks best on you and then add a few of those trends to your wardrobe.

One of the trends coming back this spring is the crop top. Ugh! This is one of those trends that  a lot of people seem to wear even when they don’t have a flat stomach. This is not a trend that I’m going to be wearing. Imagine that!

Spring Fashion Trends You Can Wear


Pleated skirts are coming back and they’re wearing them below the knee. I know a lot of women will like this longer length. Maxi skirts will still be stylish this spring.

Spring Fashion Trends You Can Wear


The shirt dress is a cute trend. It’s comfortable and will be perfect for warmer weather.

Spring Fashion Trends You Can Wear


A lot of you have asked about floral. It’s going to be popular this spring. I think it’s one of those patterns you have to be careful wearing. It can make you look older.

Spring Fashion Trends You Can Wear


Collared shirts are popular for spring and of course I love this trend.

Pastels will be everywhere. Although I like a more vivid color, I’m sure I’ll add some pastels to my wardrobe.

So what do you think of the spring fashion trends? Are you a fan of any of them? 

I’ll be adding spring clothes to my Spring/Summer Pinterest board if you want to follow along!

I’m Thinking Green and I Have a Favor

Well, in case you haven’t heard, green is going to be a hot color for 2013. So, of course I’m thinking green!

I’ve always been a fan of green. I remember as a little girl, my parents were in the process of building a home and Mom let my sister, brother and I pick out the color of carpet we each wanted in our rooms (what was she thinking?).  My brother picked blue, my sister picked yellow and I picked green.

I’m not planning on putting green carpet in my home anytime soon but I will be adding some green to my basic wardrobe. Here’s some fashion inspiration from Jessica Quirk from the What I Wore blog.

I'm-Thinking-Green 1


I’m in love with this next outfit, green with a leopard print coat and shoes. Could it get any better?

I'm-Thinking-Green 4

I’ve been getting a ton of emails (I do my best to answer them all) with questions like what’s a good lip color for women over 40, can I wear leggings, what about headbands, etc.

If you have a question related to fashion would you leave a comment here with your question. I’m going to do a post or posts dedicated to YOUR questions. I love that you ask them and my guess is if you’re wandering, other readers are too!

So please ask away and let’s have fun learning together!

Beauty For the Heart~~Esther 4:14b, “Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” Even though we may not be a queen, this verse reminds me that we are each here at this time in history for a reason. We have a purpose and God wants to use us for His glory!

Favorite “Pins” Friday and a Link Up

Happy Friday Friends!! Today I’m sharing some of my Favorite “pins” and I’ve been pinning some things I’d like to wear to a Christmas celebration at church or with family and friends.

Two things I’m really liking are sequins and fur. Here’s a look at some of my ideas!

I love, love this outfit. How cute would that be at a family get together. I know Old Navy has sequins tank tops so I might be buying one soon.


Simply gorgeous!


I love faux fur this time of the year. Such a great blazer with the added fur.


You can’t go wrong with black and I’m loving this black fur vest.


What do you think? Do you like sequins and fur?
