Tie It Together Thursday!

Tie It Together Thursday

Hi there! Today it’s Tie It Together Thursday and I’m styling a dress for Susan. She has a blog called Charming Lucy and shares a lot of fashion & beauty posts, she’s super sweet. The dress she asked me to style is by a company called hazel and she received it in her Stitch Fix box.

I love this dress and I decided to style it two different ways since we’re at the end of summer and heading into fall.

First, let me say that I think shoes can make or break an outfit. You can have an adorable dress like this one and wear the wrong shoe and it’s going to hurt the overall look.

I know everyone can’t wear every style of shoe. But, if you have to have a really comfortable shoe because of feet issues try to look for styles that don’t age you.

There’s a website I found called BarkingDogShoes–fashionable finds for fussy feet. I would check her website out if you have fussy feet.

Now on to our hazel flower print dress. This dress is very busy so I wouldn’t add a necklace but I would pop a lot of gold and I’d start with the sandals.

I have a similar pair of these and I love them. They would look fabulous with this dress! I found them on Zappos.com.

Here’s how I styled the dress for a end of the summer look. I would add large earrings and stack some bracelets. Actually, the more bracelets the merrier and of course if you have a watch, add that too.

The earring and colorful bracelet are from Francescas.com and the gold chain bracelet can be found at Brinkle.com.

The next way I styled the dress is for fall. I think this style would be perfect with a bootie and I love these from Banana Republic. You can wear them alone or add some black pantyhose.

Fashion Over 40-What I Wore

Fashion Over 40

Happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing some fashion over 40 outfits I wore this past week. I was obviously in a “blue” mood!

I’ve shared the necklace I have on with you several times. It’s my favorite one because it goes with so many of my outfits.

Last week I told you I was going to pull some things out of my closet that I hadn’t worn this summer and decide if I was going to keep them or give them away. I pulled this sleeveless top out and I’ve decided I’m going to give it away. It’s just not working for me these days!

What I Wore-Casual Summer Fashion

Happy Hump Day! I‘m so glad you stopped by. Today I’m sharing some very casual summer fashion.

It’s that time of the year, when I’m tired of all my summer clothes. Do you all get that way? I’ve worn everything over an over and I’m ready for something different.

I’ve also started another project at my house and it’s about to get the best of me! After going to the Haven Conference a few weeks ago and everyone raving about Annie Sloan chalk paint, I decided I had to try it.

What was I thinking? This is my unfinished dining room hutch. I’m not totally liking it yet and I may have to call in an expert, my sister Traci (please don’t tell her I called her that!). Here’s what it looks like today. I really want to get this finished by Friday!

Anyway, in between my paint clothes I wore these outfits. I’ve been so busy this week I only snapped two pictures. I love a white t-shirt with jeans but I like to dress it up a bit so I added a summer scarf and some silver jewelry.

Favorite “PINS” Friday!

Give Me Jesus

Here we are again! It’s Friday! It’s been a week of adjusting around our house. Both of our foreign exchange students are here and so we’re getting to know them and helping them adjust to a new school, home, friends, etc.

This is both of them on their way to school this morning. They were a little tired because we stayed up too late last night. :-)

Favorite "PINS" Friday!

Now, here are some of my favorite “PINS” this week~~

Tie It Together Thursday

Tie It Together Thursday

Welcome to Tie It Together Thursday! This is where I take an outfit that you send me and add all the accessories. So please, if you have an outfit send it to me at cyndispivey(at)gmail(dot)com.

Tie It Together Thursday

Today I’m styling a dress for Debbie. Her son is getting married in October and she’s wearing this gorgeous grey dress from Lane Bryant.

Accessories are so important especially when it comes to a wedding. Of course, you don’t want to out shine the bride but as mother of the groom, you are a part of the wedding party. It’s a big day and you want to look your best!

I recently attended a wedding of a dear friend of mine. She was the mother of the bride and she was stunning! Here’s a quick picture of her waiting for her daughter to walk down the isle. Her dress was gorgeous but look at her accessories. Obviously the necklace was the focal point so she kept her earrings simple.

Teal Wedding

With the dress that Debbie is wearing the neckline is busy so I didn’t add a necklace. Debbie said eggplant was the main color so I decided to add that color in her heels. These are Kate Spade heels, and they’re gorgeous! I think they were $295. I’m sorry the price is high, if you can find a cheaper pair that looks this good, go for it!

Next, I went with silver jewelry and you’ll notice, I like bling! Don’t be boring on such a special day! All the jewelry I found online at Ann Taylor.

Lastly, I popped a silver clutch. I found this at Ann Taylor also.

My Latest Stitch Fix!

My Latest Stitch Fix!

My Latest Stitch Fix!

Hi friends! I’m sharing my latest fix with you today. Some of you I know love getting your fixes, like I do. But I also know some of you have not tried Stitch Fix but I still hope you don’t mind me sharing my box with you.

I asked my stylist if she would send me transitional pieces for fall. I’m finished with summer clothes. I’m still wearing them but I don’t need to purchase any more.

Let me give you a word of warning! I tried these pieces on quickly and I’m not sure how I will style them. So don’t judge what I have on with them. :-)

First, they sent me these Sanctuary bootcut jeans. They’re a green color and I’m not sure what I’m going to wear them with but I will need a slight heel because of the length.

My Latest Stitch Fix!

This is a Whetherly striped cardigan. You can never have enough cardigans this time of the year. Just for fun, I put it over one of my navy blue summer dresses and added a belt.

My Latest Stitch Fix!
I love this Kensie metallic polka dot sheer blouse! I’m a sucker for polka dots and metallic is very “in” this fall/winter season. This could be dressed up or down but I think it would be great for a holiday party.

My Latest Stitch Fix!

When I first saw this Nick & Mo embroidered cardigan, I thought, “no way!” I thought it looked old ladyish. But after I tried it on, I kind of liked it and I think with a cute pink scarf it will work. What do you think?

What I Wore-July 2013

***I’m still working on the ads that are floating on my site, they should NOT be doing that! It would help me if you could tell me what you’re seeing! I promise I will get his fixed!!

Do you remember last week when I wrote my post, When Life Happens? I shared about some things going on in our families life and how busy this week would be. Well, this week is here! Yikes!

Courtney, Chris and Colt Allen are moving out today (I’ve gotten use to them being here and now I want to cry!). Cory, our son, is in Columbus, Ohio taking the Law Bar examination.

I’m leaving tomorrow morning for the Haven Conference in Atlanta, Georgia and our first foreign exchange student is flying in on Friday night.

Whew!! Things are a little crazy around my house! 

I hope you don’t mind if I do a re-cap of  What I Wore-July 2013 post. These are the outfits I posted over the past month. Is July really over? Are you kidding me?

How To Wear The Ankle Boot

How to wear the ankle boot

Last week on my Tie It Together Thursday picture, I showed this picture with black ankle boots. Krista, who sent the picture of the dress, had mentioned wearing ankle boots with it in the fall.

Several of you asked about the ankle boots. How do you wear them? Do you wear tights, what color, etc.

How To Wear The Ankle BootI’m not sure I would wear boots with this dress. If I did wear ankle boots, I would wear black tights but I would have to try this on to make sure it looked right.

I decided to do some researching and thinking about how to wear the ankle boot. It looks like they’ll be popular again this fall/winter season.

Let remind you, just because it’s in style doesn’t mean we have to wear it. Not everyone looks good in ankle boots.

Here are some things to consider:

~~Ankle boots cut your legs off at the ankle so if you have short legs, it will make them look shorter.

~~Try to wear an ankle boot that is close to your skin color to avoid them cutting off your legs.

~~Ankle boots accentuate the ankle, so if you have large ankles, you may not want to wear them with a dress.

~~Ankle boots look great with skinny jeans.

I found some pictures with ankle boots that I liked. These are great examples of how to wear the ankle boot.
