Taking a quick look-see today at what some of my fashion forward friends are focusing on today for Fashion Friday: Lilly Pulitzer pushed out even more nautical looks this week and Whitney is drooling over them. Jo-Lynne is crushing on some favorite wedges to wear this summer. I'm loving this pick--and it's under $100! Vera shopped ASOS and found 5 must-have summer pieces, each for under $50. I'm always super impressed with the style and prices at ASOS. Melissa's featuring … [Read more...]

Well, summer's here. Okay, not officially, but summer weather hit us HARD this week in the Philadelphia region and, thankfully, so did an open pool and swim team practice.

I lasted 20 minutes in that breeze and walked back to the house.) Anyway. It's time. For real. Time to … [Read more...]
Inspired by posting about a Zen Dream room this morning: a room that promotes healthy, relaxing living, I'm in a mood for comfort today. So I'm stepping out of the accessorize and get dressed for seeing people mode and focusing on the days when we really do want to relax and enjoy me-time. Those days when a can't-put-it-down book is calling your name, or sitting on the patio sipping cucumber-infused water with your feet up, listening to a relaxing fountain or the birds chirping is the only thing … [Read more...]
I was excited when my husband called me, about 2 months ago, to tell me we were going to the Kentucky Derby. Excited, but a bit overwhelmed. I'm not usually the type to get nervous about fashion. I very rarely ask people "what should I wear?" Because I study these things: fashion, trends, party expectations. I should write a book on it. But, for the Derby, I was lost. And so I messaged my Kentucky friend, Amanda to ask her probably the most important question to a Kentucky Derby: What comes … [Read more...]
Weeks leading up to my journey to the Kentucky Derby, I heard over and over "I can't wait to see your pictures!" and "PLEASE, fill my news feed with pictures!" I have SO many pictures that I'm going to have to separate them into two posts. Enjoy the 2013 Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks in pictures.
Next week, we'll focus on Derby hats and fashion highlights.
