September Stitch Fix Reveal!

September Stitch Fix Reveal!

Happy Fall Y’all! According to the calendar, it’s fall. But according to the thermometer on my car this afternoon it’s still summer. It’s 90 something degrees here. But a girl can dream of fall, can’t she? And in a few weeks, I’ll actually get to experience an actual authentic autumn! Complete with  cooler temps, beautiful leaves, apples and pumpkins. All those things that just shout the change of season from summer to fall. The hubs and I are taking a little trip to visit my brother and his family in the northeast, and I can’t wait! I told my Stitch Fix Stylist about my trip, and asked her to send me some things I could wear on our little adventure to the north. And as usual, Erin rocked it!

My August Stitch Fix for Fall Y’all!

My August Stitch Fix for Fall Y’all!

Happy September!

I love September. So many good things to be thankful for. My son was born in September – 30 – yes 30- years ago. I can’t even believe I’m old enough to have a 30 year old son. And he’s my youngest! Yikes! I’m overjoyed this year, because he and his wife are expecting their first child, a son. It’s so amazing that my baby is having a baby!  Also, my daughter and her hubs will be celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary in September. Another milestone, and encouragement that life goes on.

September also brings us cooler temps, and the realization that fall is right around the corner! It’s time to start working on those fall wardrobes, ladies! Did you read my Fall Workwear Refresh post? I shared the fall color palette with Erin, my Stitch Fix stylist, and asked her to surprise me with new pieces for my wardrobe using that color palette. And she knocked it out of the ballpark! As you view my reveal, pay attention to how well she worked those colors into this Fix. Keep reading for my Stitch Fix reveal!

Fall Workwear Refresh

Fall Workwear Refresh

Happy Fall y’all! (not really, it’s August in Louisiana so….) Anyway, a girl can dream, can’t she? I just love that epic Fall issue of Vogue that comes out each year. I’m pretty certain that 98 percent of that impressive issue is ads and fragrance inserts! Even though I can’t afford much of anything in Vogue, I always get inspiration from the ideas within the pages. Think of it as a paper “mood board” for your closet. I’ve been doing a little research into the fashion trends for Fall 2017, and how I can utilize these new Fall fashion trends in my workwear. I’m excited to share what I’ve found with you!  Continue reading “Fall Workwear Refresh”

Rose Gold Home Office Decor

My home office is a mess y’all! A very hot mess. I’ve slowly been sifting through Mom and Dad’s stuff. I have their files and tax returns and an old Underwood typewriter and cards and envelopes (Mom was a paper/cardstock hoarder). I still have an old oak Broyhill four-piece bookshelf and curio cabinet that we’ve had since 1995. Yeah. It’s in there too. Mainly because we were unable to sell it, and just moved it here with us. And there it is. I don’t even like it anymore, I just can’t figure out what to do with the stupid thing. Paint it? I don’t know. I have leftover scrapbook supplies in a craft cabinet. (I haven’t scrapbooked in years, since I do it on my phone now). Again. Just haven’t done anything with it. Seriously. Why exactly do we hang onto stuff? It’s just stuff. And the stuff overwhelms me. I’m so over it.  Continue reading “Rose Gold Home Office Decor”
