Another Day of Temps in the 80’s! 

I decided that I am going to take advantage of this heat wave and take

every opportunity to wear my dresses with bare legs before boot season arrives!


This dress is one from Ann Taylor Loft that I found on Ebay.

This brand is always consistent and I feel confident in purchasing it without having to try things on. 

The Vest is one I just I recently found at Cato and love to pair with dresses  or tank tops.


I am wearing a darker brown lipstick here and rather like it!

This combination of the dress with a denim vest really makes dresses more casual and perfect for a Mom on the Go


The background color in this dress is dark brown, hence the touches of brown in my necklace, belt, shoes and purse. 

Shoes are my Aerosoles mules, such a classic and I love them, easy to walk in…

Dear Readers, I love easy dresses for busy days, just one piece, a topper and accessories makes for a quick outfit. 

When I searched this dress out on ebay, i thought it would layer nicely for winter with my creme moto, brown jacket and a jean jacket.  I could also opt for a long chunky sweater for a less structured cozy look.  

I ordered just such a sweater in the Stone color  from Ebay,  and it’s perfect!  This sweater is very versatile and you may get sick of seeing me in this coming season as I love it so much!  Highly recommend a chunky boyfriend sweater for Fall/Winter.


I am grateful that I didn’t have to take migraine medicine today!!!! 

I am grateful to my youngest who touched my shoulders and saw how tense I was and massaged me!

I am grateful to my daughter for giving the dog a bath.  

I am grateful that I managed to get in a quick walk to the store before the heavy downpour began! 

I am grateful for an amazing opportunity to take a lifetime dream trip next October to Ireland!

These cords are so soft , I wish I could post pictures of me wearing them, but I purchased them a size smaller than my current weight in anticipation of the continued weight loss journey. They are from Chadwicks  and are available in limited sizes   I love the pumpkin color!  I bought them in regular length to wear with boots, but they do come in petites.

While talking about Chadwicks, which I love, here is the link to a sweater I purchased from them earlier and  I just love the corals, browns and green in the print.  One more thing don’t forget to search online for coupon codes when placing an order as there are usually some pretty good ones.

Now onto my thrift store scores.  These shoes, just really looked special to me.  My intention is to wear them with pants and tights and just have to toes peeking out from pants.  To me they almost have a menswear inspired feel to them. What do you think?  

This sweater is my attempt for shorter tops to elongate my legs and disguise my petite body.  I love the color and the texture.  It is a Talbots Petite.  I don’t know if this will qualify as the chunky sweater trend, but it is my intention without bulking up.  When you are on a weight loss journey this trend is not ideal.  Does it qualify for the trend, please chime in!

Next is another Sfera sweater must have been donated by the same person as my previous one.  Researched and found out this is from a Spanish design house of affordable designs.  Can’t go wrong with olive….

This skirt is my favorite piece this week.  As much as I confess that I love pink, I would have to say chocolate brown is right up there with it.  If I can’t eat it, I might as well wear it!  This skirt was bought for one very important purpose… To force me to tuck since it has buttons that need to be highlighted.  I vowed to look for details like that and will search for more.  Ann Taylor tag on this is sewed on upside down…

Now, due to my realization that I need more cropped looks to accommodate my petite body, I recently went on a search on Ebay to see what I could find.  These just came in the mail. I love the jade green color of the mohair cropped jacket. The color of the red one is so fun and it is the perfect length.  Should I change out those white buttons?


Gratitude- I am grateful that my only daughter will be home today for fall break from college and infuse some much needed feminine energy into our home.  

I am really looking forward to taking my daughter for some “shoe shopping therapy” to release the stress of her senior year!

I hope my finds inspire you in some way.  If you are petite and trying to maximize your outfits to elongate you, please share your tricks.

Have a wonderful weekend!
