Reader Request…Meg!!

This week’s reader request comes from Meg, she is as country as they come, but works downtown in the big city. She is hoping for some help to let her roots show through, but in a way that will work at work… (LOL)

Here are some ideas for you, Meg…basically, invest your $$ in some FABULOUS suits, pieces that you can mix and match, jackets, pants and skirts…then add the “YOU” to it with accessories. Pick accessories that looks expensive, if you want to invest, go for it, but remember to pick items that are classic and will look fab forever. For the cheaper pieces, go to stores that do fabulous copies of what is on trend today for less $$…here in Canada, The Bay does an AMAZING job…not too sure what to reccomend for the USA…any suggestions from you darlings?!

And keep the western/country reference subtle, just a touch here and there, makes for a classier look than the INYOURFACE western stuff…i.e.blingy belts, cowboy boots (not in the workplace), feathers, etc. And try to keep the “western” to just one item in your look, more than that is overkill.

This first polyvore page shows some examples of accessories I adore…

Look(s) of the week…

Hello all! Hope you are doing fabulous today!! I have been all over the place this week…not literally, but my brain has officially fried. Working nights is entertaining…to say the least. Hopefully I can keep it together and get some actually house stuff done, and posts, and plan the girlie’s upcoming birthday party…
Sigh.
It’ll get done. It always does!
So here are a few looks of the week for a treat….
Enjoy!!!

Look of the week ~ Carrie Underwood

 This week it is the newlywed herself…Carrie Underwood.

Love this outfit, again..not so hot for the white pants. I would go with jeans, and with the crazy weather we’ve been having, I think jeans would work fine!

Navy shirt….short or long sleeved.
 
 
 
The same super-cute pants from last week’s look…gotta wear them more than once! And while you’re at it, go for the same sandals too…oh so  practical. 🙂
 
 
 
Gold hoop earrings from Etsy…
 
Just Another Pair of Hoops  BUT    TEXTURED    Gold fill Wire Wrapped Hoop Earrings

Add the long pearls….

Now the “Farmer’s Trophy Wife” touch…

And why not go for matching cuffs (channel your  inner Coco Chanel)…

 

Fabulous!

Love…

Summer wardrobe…

Hand-Crocheted Dress - Blue Label - RalphLauren.com

Summer has arrived and with it, the 30+ degree temps and the need for a cool wardrobe!! This makes me happy, 1- because I love the heat and 2- because it’s time to reassess my wardrobe for summer.

A new wardrobe season is a great time to look at your clothes and really evaluate them. Do they still fit? Are they still in style? What do you love and what did you wear only once last season?

My closet is as pared down as it gets. I feel no regrets or hesitations about giving clothes away to charity that I don’t wear. If it didn’t make it out of my closet last season more than once, chances are pretty good, it won’t again this year.

My method of assessing my wardrobe is fairly simple. First I dig all my summer clothes out from storage and as I pull it from the bins, sort it into piles, Love, Hate or Maybe. This is helpful right off the bat as the “hate” pile is immediately put into the donation bags, I don’t even bother trying them on. Then the “maybe” pile is attacked, does it fit and is it still in style. Having babies has made this entertaining, as I have been a range of sizes over the last 3 summers. Not pregnant, just post-baby and pregnant, makes for an interesting assortment of clothes!! And then I approach the “like” pile, if it fits and I think it will work, it’s put in the closet and added to the list. The list is my attempt at organizing my life. I make note of everything I have that will work this summer and use it when determining what I still need.

What comes next is my favourite part! I have a notebook that is full of clothing and style ideas, I’ve written about it before…it’s FABULOUS!!! As I browse through my notebook, I make a list of what I need to pull these looks together.  I might already have the white tee and statement necklace, all I need is a pair of cute safari inspired shorts and I’ve got my look!

Love…
