What to Wear to The Grove

Jeans and T-shirt

and a weighted pendant necklace...

A little secret that I learned from the blog by Susan Street.  I love her blog and one of the best tips was to use the weighted necklace to keep this look from looking like I have a barrel chest.  It was an "aha" moment for me.

Necklace by Kendra Scott from Bloomingdales.  

They had it in lots of colors.

Thank you, Susan @fiftynotfrumpy!

Grey t-shirt (old) from JCPenney.  I checked and this brand is no longer available.  When I find a great t-shirt, I buy it in three colors: white, grey, and black.  I get two of each. 
Jeggings from Hollister.

Shoes by Steve Madden.

Purse by Coach.

Work Uniform for Summer 2016

Summer 2016

Hot days require easy, breezy pieces that I can move in.

Super stretchy jeans by Hollister.  Super stretchy.  Flowy white blouse by Rachel Roy.

I see it's on sale too: 

Shoes are from one of those little shoe stores in the mall and have turned out to be super comfortable for running around.  Purse by Salvatore you like the little puff ball that I added?

With advance age comes grey hair!  Hollywood Secret:  Color Wow!

I use the color "platinum" and I get it from Ulta:

I am about three weeks past due from having those pesky roots colored, and this product is what they use on set because it works!!  Just brush on the roots and go.

What to Wear to Work, Then to Dinner

I came across this pix and found my inspiration.

Then, I had to go to work and then to dinner.

Doesn't she have great style?  Her name is Robyn and she's on Instagram as: chic_in_chanel
Her style is I right?

But first, work work work.

And then add some heels and a white jacket and...

Ready to go.

Day to night.

Gingham Again?

Is that gingham again?

Is that gingham?

Yes.  It is.  Gingham is so easy breezy to wear for hot summer work days.

White jeans are really easy to wear!!
Hollywood Secret: Wet Ones.

Yes.  Wet Ones.  Wardrobe people have them ON THEIR PERSON at all times when on-set, because actors are messy people.  Okay, maybe that's not nice to messy people.  Actors are normal and sometimes normal people spill on themselves and this product works.  The other day I was wearing white jeans and spilled mustard during lunch.  I took pictures of the miracle that are Wet Ones.

I carry them with me at all times when I am wearing white.

On my way!

Show Blacks

Trying to keep it fresh...

Black can be boring, so mixing up materials and textures keeps it interesting.

The sheer black chiffon blouse has a little tie at the neck.  I'm not much of a bow kind of girl, so I tied it like a necktie, it's super sheer, so black camisole instead of a bra.  Black blouse is old from American Apparel, but I checked the website and saw this one:

I got new sunnies yesterday.  I buy my sunglasses from Target because I lose them.  And that's painful.  But, at Bloomingdales, if you join their "loyalist" program, you get gift certificates for points, more points, higher gift certificates. I saved my points and got these sunnies...I won't lose these, I swear, 'cus I'm never taking them off.|BOOST SAVED SET%26spc%3D4%26cm_kws%3Dvalentino sunglasses%26cm_kws_ac%3Dvalentino%26pn%3D1

Skirt (old) and no longer available, but I did a Google search for black bandage skirt and there were lots of options.  Nude shoes (old) by Steve Madden.  Hollywood Secret: nude shoes lengthen legs!!  Bag (old) from Coach, but again, lots of options online:
(Those Steve Madden bags are cute and affordable)

Summer Inspiration

I'm new here...

Somedays, it's nice to have an effortless inspiration...

It feels like my own personal stylist.

I know, right?  Her name is Lisa, don't you love her style?  Effortless, adorable, summer-y (is that a word, spellcheck says no).  I love her style and her blog, here's a link:
(I got sooooo many compliments...Thank you, Lisa)

The dress is old from Old Navy, it originally had long sleeves, but after seeing beautiful Lisa, I realized that the dress was too summery to have long sleeves, I never wore it.  So, I cut off the sleeves and now I'm wearing it, where before it sat lonely in my closet.

I love, love, love my Bandolier!  Whenever I upgrade my phone, the first thing I do is order one of these.  The styles change, but the quality does not and, it is worth every penny.  It's great for on the go and you will never lose your phone.
Here is a link to their website:

Hat by Sole Society available at Nordstroms.  Here's the link:

Hollywood Secret:  use anti-perspirant where ever you don't want to perspire.  I use it between my legs...never chafe again!!!

I love bloggers...did I do good, Lisa, my muse?

What to Wear to Lunch at Nobu

With my girlfriends...

I want to be comfortable.  Nobu is super casual, but definitely a celeb hotspot.

Navy stripes say beach to me and Nobu restaurant is right on the fact, if you go in the daytime, it's much better to see the crashing waves.  At night, it's too dark.  

Sand colored suede shoes by Steve Madden...they come in lots of colors. My legs are short, so I wear heels similar to the color of my legs, making them look longer than they are.

I wore the long statement necklace to define my top a little better 
and not look so "barrel chested".
Striped shirt is old from Old Navy.  White shorts are Maison Jules from Macys.

The "Amy" purse (medium) by Salvatore Ferragamo available at Bloomingdales.

Wear a hat, because it gets sunny on the patio.  This day, Robin Thicke was behind us, of course, I did not take a picture of him and his hot girlfriend.

The sliders are good, apparently, but I absolutely loooooove the yellowtail with jalepeƱo!!

What to Wear on Monday

If you've got the blues...

A pop of color is just the trick to put a pep in your step!

Stripes definitely say summer and red shoes keep me on my toes, especially on a back-to-work-Monday-blues!

Black and white Ralph Lauren striped shirt from Macy's.  
White jeans and sunglasses from Target.  
Red patent leather pumps (old) from Steve Madden.  
Black satchel bag (old) from Coach

There's a fake banana in my bag, if you leave a comment, I'll send it to you to prove I'm happy to see you.

It's always a race to the end of the week...

But are we sure we want to hurry through life?

I love to throw on a dress and go!!  No matching tops and bottoms.  I added a belt to polish off the look.  Belt and dress from Target.  Shoes by Steve Madden, they are my go-to summer shoe to lengthen my legs.  I've practically been wearing them since they came in the mail and I pulled them out of the box...but today...

Ouch!  With all the running around, a little blister was going to ruin my day...good thing I have my miracle worker...

Look!!  It's even in the top drawer of my desk.  Just rub it ANYWHERE where it's pinching, rubbing or tight.  NEVER have a blister on the red carpet AGAIN...or the grocery...or the pediatrician...or vacation...

Sunglasses from Target!

Purse by Salvatore Ferragamo

What do you do to save time for the little moments in life?
