Still in: Stripes

30 Jan

Hello Lovelies,

Stripes are not going anywhere this season and this winter I am wearing them with my brightest garments to get me out of the rut from this gloomy gray winter, although the last couple of days have felt more like spring in the upper 50s-60s not bad for winter in the MI.






I am loving these nude neutral J.Crew ribbed tights they look pretty close to my skin color and what is even better is that they keep me warm.

        Yes warm and rainy! I am hoping we get some snow by this weekend, going to the Women’s Winter tour in TC, chocolate and wine 🙂

      So jealous, now that sounds like fun. I love TC, it reminds of the Central Coast where we are from, I am sure it is beautiful in the winter with the white snow.

    Hi there! Loving your blog, my name is Katie Elliott I am the creator of Tag a ( The website works like this: each week I announce a new fashion trend, and people then tag themselves on Facebook wearing that trend. This is done by tagging their picture with the Tag a Trend Facebook page.

    The other option is to directly add your pics to the facebook wall at or to email pics to The best pics then appear on my site.

    Next week’s trend, starting on Monday is ‘Leopard Print’ and as I can see you are loving the trend, I thought you might be interested in getting involved and tagging yourself in this fab print. The picture will appear on both my site and Facebook (both with a direct link back to your blog.)

    (As this new trend doesn’t start until Monday, it may be best to email pictures rather than tag, so they don’t get mixed up with this week’s trend of ‘Aztec Print’!)

    Look forward to hearing from you!
