Olympic Spirit

Olympic Spirit



I can not wait for tonight!
I absolutely love the uniforms that Ralph Lauren designed for the US Olympic Team

My favorite part about the olympics is getting to know the athletes.
They have so much drive and determination.
Imagine what it takes to become an Olympian?

Going to the Olympics is definitely on my bucket list.
I did not live in Atlanta when the games were here so I missed them.

I decided today’s post should be…

A) An outfit to wear in London this week if I was there and sitting next to Princess Kate.
I think we could be friends. She would like me!

B) All of my favorite British Designers
Alexander McQueen
Stella McCartney
Burberry

Let The Games Begin!

Vacation

Vacation



Heading South to the Florida Keys on Thursday for some much needed R&R.


When planning our vacation I had three rules-


1. No sightseeing
2. No agenda
3. No fancy clothes


I truly want to veg, read at least two books and drink lots of beverages that have umbrellas in them!
That is it, nothing else!


I am packing very light, at least I’m going to try.
This is a very difficult task for me.


I got this bikini at Old Navy over the weekend.
It was $20! No lie.
It is a bright orange with gold rings and I love it, who needs to spend $200 on a bikini?


Add a couple sundresses, sunglasses and a hat and I’m out the door.


I bought the anchor necklace the other day and I love it.
Shhh, don’t tell my mom but I’ve always wanted a small anchor tattoo (I spent a lot of my childhood on a boat if you are wondering the significance).
This will have to do the job.


Happy Monday, so thrilled about my three day work week!

Happy Holiday Weekend CHICKs

Woot Woot, I love a three day weekend!

Latest Obsession

I’m borderline stalkerish with this CHICK.
I want everything in her summer collection. 
I love the California simplicity.
I want to meet her. 
I read where she lives near the beach and rides her bike everywhere.
 Her mother is a movie producer. 
She is beautiful and sexy.
And just plan cool! 
Great line, check it out!

Don’t Be Scared!

Don't Be Scared!

Here is technically the same outfit I posted yesterday but I wanted to show you how great the NEON accessories look with the blue jeans!
It doesn’t have to be yellow neon, it could be pink or green.
I love this necklace!
Or how about neon nails?
Just a thought!
XOXO,
Happy Shopping

My May Uniform

My May Uniform

I don’t know about you, but for me May is Nuts!
I have something every single night between now and Memorial Day.
This is my uniform for the moment.
I’m scrambling to keep my favorites clean and/or back from the dry cleaners…..
A pair of skinny jeans, colored are my fav, but a regular dark wash does the trick too.
I really prefer cropped ones in the summer.
A blousey (is that a word?) top, that hides all kinds of imperfections but can look polished with a skinnier bottom. 
I like one that has spaghetti straps to show off my shoulders.
Hey, I need to draw the eye up and away from my bottom half!
A great pair of shoes.
Cool & bright accessories- I’m loving neon right now. This outfit would look great with some neon jewelry or bag!
 And a clutch.
I can’t live without my gold clutch, it goes with everything.
All about accessorizing!
May Wardrobe Essentials:
Neon Something- A necklace, bracelet, clutch
Happy Shopping!

Heading in Search of the Sun by fashionablechicks 




Heading South for the week and I can’t wait! I feel like a kid again, this week has gone by so incredibly slow!


Looking forward to spending time with my children away from the phones and tv’s and computers.
Looking forward  to finishing my book and starting a new one.
Looking forward to the sunsets.
Looking forward to lots of cousin time.
Looking forward to visits to the Sugar Shack.
Looking forward to a very cold beverage.
Looking forward to long walks.
Looking forward to no work and all play.
Looking forward to drip castles.
Looking forward to mermaids.
Looking forward to seeing lots of stars.
Looking forward to listening to good music.
Looking forward to feeling rested……
should I go on?

Oh, sorry I was day dreaming, back to the fashion blog.
Must pack all of the above.
Big hats, sunscreen, sunglasses and a bikini is really all I need.
But I love a denim shirt as a cover up, a light sweater for cool nights.
A great pair of gold thong sandals, a cool DVR coverup.
A pair of gold hoops and Im good to go.
All set!

XOXO,

Hopefully the soon the be bronzed CHICK!

Take Me Away….

Take Me Away....
Susana Monaco Dress from Poppy’s of Atlanta
As you can see I am wanting two things in my life right now.

Vacation. Simplicity.


Easy clothes that look great and are simple, comfortable and not fussy.

I love this simple column Susana Monaco maxi for the summer.
I actually got it in navy.
I can’t wait to wear it.

It will look great with these matching Kenneth Jay Lane Studded Cuffs. 


Having matching cuffs is a simple way to take an ordinary outfit and make it special. 

And with my new favorite flips flops.
Tkees.

They are the best and very affordable- around $45.
They come in all different colors but I love the nude ones.

Mirror Mirror on the Wall…

Mirror Mirror on the Wall...

Mirror Mirror on the Wall… by fashionablechicks on polyvore.com

I don’t know about you but about this time every winter I look in the mirror and feel 5 years older. My skin looks dry, pale and ughhhh wrinkly! 
I try to get a regular facial in the winter but somehow I can’t quite squeeze it in. So instead, here are a few products I love that help with the winter blahs.
I use an exfoliator everyday, yes everyday, along with my Clarisonic. If you do not own a Clarisonic, they are a great investment. A little pricey but worth every penny. I think they are around $250 but I have had mine for three years and it is still working great.  I like Clinique and YSL, they are not very strong so perfectly safe to use everyday. The Bobbi Brown body scrub is great and I can not live without this one.  

When I feel really dry and dull, I add a retinoid product. To get one that really works- you need to get it from your dermatologist.
A great addition all year, is the Kate Sumerville Face Tanning Pads. I try to not get sun on my face and these do not smell soooooo incredibly bad like most sunless tanners do.
Hope this helps a tad, I’ve added a moisturizer (Bobbi Brown) and Aquaphor for the lips. I’m addicted to this stuff. I even put it under my eyes with and without makeup on. With makeup, I add it to the top of my cheekbones and it gives you a dewy look. Try it and see, not too much- you don’t want to look greasy.

Bye Bye Winter Blahs…..
