Skirts! They are just so much fun because typically if you shop well you are able to find a skirt that helps to create multiple looks with what's already in your closet. I think we ladies all need some basic skirts {like a black pencil} and some fun skirts to add a little variety. The little skirt that I'm featuring today is that type of skirt - the fun type. This is one of those comfy and soft skirts that are perfect in the summertime. I think I can create multiple looks with tees, tanks ... Continue Reading...

Unfortunately, I passed on a couple and settled with the one I'm featuring today. Lots of reasons I think this dress is a wonderful alternative but I still hope to find one of others as well. I do really like striped dresses worn as a casual look with sneakers. I thought adding a denim jacket would also ... Continue Reading...

If you've spent any amount of time around these parts, you know that I love stripes.  I once did a load of laundry that was 90% comprised of striped items.  I may or may not have a problem.  But you know what?  If loving stripes this much is wrong, then I don't want to be right!  They are just so darn chic! Since I wear stripes at least once a week, I wanted to somehow freshen-up my look for Create28.  Of all my striped items, I felt this pink and white number was the brightest and most fun ...
