New Year- New Ideas

Happy 2018!

 Its a new year with some great new ideas.  I love that you don’t have to completely vacate your closet.

Every  style can be altered for a new look, even past ones.

This year I thought I would show ways to repurpose things you already have.

You can take things in your closet and update and change the look.

For example:







(from Forever 21)



(from Mango)

These trench coats are shown as a typical coat.

Lets’s show how you can add and repurpose a trench for more of a dress look.









Add a T-shirt, or even a turtleneck would be great

FYI I bought this coat at BeBe at least 8+ years ago!

There are so many other ideas!


The Pantone color this year is ultraviolet.









I love purple shades and adding to that,  pastels are also big this year.

So, how about a pastel purple??















(both from Target A New Day Collection)

Love it!

So you can see some ideas. I am sure you’ll have many of your own.

Let me know what you can come up with.

Until Next time










Trench Coats & Dusters Oh, My!


Well it’s the season for coats and jackets. Layering is essential for moving from Summer to Fall.

I am loving the trench style coats they are showing. Actually some of them are more of a Duster type coat, many with no buttons, but longer in length.

I recently purchased this one at you won’t believe where, Forever 21. I thought that store was more geared to younger ages but it goes to show if you seek you will find!!



 Forever 21

I purchased this coat online for $52.00 plus s&h but it was also on sale so it was barely over $50 total.

There were different colors but I like the tan (neutral) best. I figured it would be more versatile.

Here are some I found similar like this one on ShopStyle.



Similar here

or here @ H&M

You can also add accessories, a big floppy hat like the picture above.

Let’s try a scarf. Its one of the fall colors out, wine or merlot.


Great look for Fall.


  • Be creative

  • Add pops of color

Happy Shopping !
