White Hot Summer Styles

Now that summer is in full swing, the heat is on and trending is also on.  White is the new ‘in’ shade.

Instead of the LBD (little black dress) we gals are looking for the LWD (little white dress).  For Example:

P1030485                           P1030484








 (similar here)











The dresses were all less than $50(except the one similar-which was $149
and the last one Ann Klein was $69). All were lace or cotton. Lace is a big trend now.

I decided on this one. I felt it would be great for any summer event. It’s from White House/Black Market, get ready, on sale $39.













*FYI for anyone who lives in the Houston area, I have a gem that I just discovered.










This is a great place to shop.

There are two locations already open and a third ready to open soon.  I stopped in recently and spoke with some of the sales ladies. What a great bunch!

So keeping with white, while I was there I picked up this great Lilla * P long sleeve t-shirt. It’s lightweight and I know I can wear it even in the hot summer days of Texas.

P1030488                          P1030488









1. You can pair any color with white.

2. The brighter the color the better, think RED.

3. Keep it simple.

Calling all ladies 40 & over! Do you love fashion?  I’m not just talking about clothes, but shoes,  jewelry, and all the accessories. If the answer is yes then come with me to find the most elegant but still trendy way to pull an outfit together. Ladies, we may be older (lol) but we still have “it”. 

I started this blog because now after turning 60, I believe we can still look good.

What’s better than to try out new stylish trends? Getting the best deal for something trendy and new but at a lower price, who wouldn’t want that?
I definitely have an agenda for writing this blog.  My mission is one, to seek out the best deal for fashionable items and pass on the information to others and two, show how to style new trends.

My new obsession is shoes.  Who wouldn’t want STYLISH, COMFORTABLE , & TRENDY.  Luckily this year is full of shoes to fit that. The “Sporty” look is really hot now.




Roxy ( purchased from DSW)

As compared to here, Nordstrom









Native -Rubber slip-ons (Whole Earth Provision)













All cost less than $40. You could pay more but why?







Here’s a comparison of similar styles. The gold ones were bought in

a specialty boutique. They cost $65 as compared to $40.

That’s what I mean by comparative shopping.

However, the gold ones are unique and different.

While usually worn with shorts and pants, dresses and skirts are good too. You choose. It all works!


Dress – Banana Republic, shoes Roxy


Top – H&M, skirt- Loft, shoes Keds






This ankle-strap style of shoe is also big this year. I have seen them at department stores ranging from $40.00 and up. These I just purchased at Old Navy. To me they are so similar that it does not make sense to spend a lot, (similar here)

These were on sale for only, get ready, $20.00



         On the left is the Pantone color this year which is Marsala, a reddish brown color.

          Whether its a clothing piece or an accessory, you can mix it with any other piece.


Pantone is an organization which sets the color standards for manufacturers, retail, and designers each year. Fashion follows their lead for the new seasons. Each year features a new color.


1.  Crop tops are OK (Wear with high waisted garments, or with a cami under)

2.  Dress length to knee or below

3. Heels, heels, heels! (Any height that’s comfortable)
