Smooth and Sleek!

What do you feel is the most important part of your look? Many of you have asked about foundation garments so this is a post you might have been waiting for.

I took my navy cardigan off so that you could see the results of wearing one of my old style bras with a white tank top. If you have followed me for a while, you know that a tank and pants form the base for a lot of my looks. Throw on a great jacket or a comfy sweater and you are ready to go. However, if you have bra bulges, they can show even under a jacket.




If your foundation garments are poorly fitted or worn out, they can't give you a smooth line. We have all seen an ill-fitting bra ruin an otherwise great look.





In the second photo, I am wearing a Shapeez Ultimate Nude bra  
under the same tank top. The bra is a long line so that you can even make the line of your waistband more smooth.
Huge difference!




I was working at home today so I wore casual comfortable clothes with flat slip on shoes from Sperry. The tank is from Chico's. The pants are from NYDJ. 

You can see more great styles of super slimming bras at Shapeez.com. I also have a minimizing black Silkee long one that looks great under a dress.



Shapeez has shared a special code for you! Nifty50 is the code to save 10% off from today Sept 22 until October 31st.

Chico's Saturday Fun

I was a guest at Chico's in Johnson City for a few hours on Saturday.



The purpose of my visit was to share style tips with women who stopped by to ask me questions. I met some really beautiful ladies who already had such great style. 





Isn't this a great hairstyle?





I wore a faux leather trimmed vest from the new fall collection. The silver gray tee and the pants are also from Chico's but from years past. The necklace is one of my own designs layered with an old Chico's necklace.

A Day in the City

We spent the day in Asheville on Sunday.




We had nothing special planned.





We spent the day just hanging out, having lunch, watching people and shopping in the Grove Arcade.




I enjoy looking at the architecture of the Grove Arcade so much.





There is always some form of entertainment on the streets of Asheville.






Mr. Mickey is having fun with one of the various art installments in the city.





I find it very therapeutic to spend the day relaxing in the midst of a busy city. I remove myself from the rush and just sit on a bench in a park relaxing and taking in my surroundings. 





It was a beautiful early fall day! 
Do you live where the seasons change?

The LG Lena Gabrielle jacket I wore today was discovered on the sale rack at Stein Mart earlier this summer. It has faux leather trim and a black knit body.

The white tank, straight leg jeans and necklace are from Chico's. The shoes are by Ivanka Trump via Nordstrom.  The quilted chain bag is from Express.

The White Tunic

Sometimes a simple white blouse or tunic feels like a palate cleanser.




If you get bored or overwhelmed with trying to put together a unique look every day, don't. Take a day off from the complicated. Slip on a crisp white blouse and a comfortable pair of jeans.





A simple silver cuff and a pair of cognac sandals were all I needed to complete this comfortable look.




The jeans are old by Chico's.

The fabulous soft comfortable white button front tunic is from J.Jill. The front placket hides the buttons. The back is longer than the front so it could easily be worn with leggings and boots as well.

Aztec Sweater

My favorite casual weekend look for cool fall mornings includes comfortable jeans and a simple tee with a fabulous sweater.



This Aztec Cascade Cardigan from Foxcroft is perfect with my comfortable old jeans, a silver-gray tank, and Ralph Lauren boots.




This cardigan is soft and sleek, not at all bulky.




I put on sunglasses and a bit of lipstick and I am ready to go to Starbucks for a classic chai tea latte. Cheers to the weekend!

Friends on Friday

Traditions are a great way to celebrate life often with your family and friends. 




We love getting dressed up a little and having dinner on Friday evenings with our closest friends.



There is something special about being in the presence of those with whom you are most comfortable. 




What special traditions do you celebrate that allow you to spend time with those you love most?

On this evening, I wore items that are all old. I started with a base of a black tank and loose fitting crepe pants from Chico's Black Label Collection. The sweater and the jewelry are also from Chico's. The shoes are from Nordstrom last year. They are by Louise et Cie. 

I find that when I buy basic pieces that can be interchanged according to the weather or the event, I get more use from my clothes because the individual pieces all work well in a variety of situations.

Running Errands

What do you throw on to run errands?



A pair of jeans and a cute top are almost always the two pieces I reach for. Add a piece of jewelry and some cool shoes and you are ready to go in minutes.





This J.Jill knit tunic is one of my favorites. It has slight gathers under the bust at the sides and a seam across the back. Three-quarter length sleeves are always appreciated. I also like a simple neckline that allows me to wear a necklace.




The necklace is from Monkee's of Johnson City. The sunglasses and the Cole Haan bag are from T.J.Maxx.




The cognac color shoes are by Jessica Simpson via Belk. The jeans are old from Chico's.






Even if I am just running out to the grocery or the Post Office, I still get dressed. You never know who you will run into!

Chico's Event!

It was an honor to be asked to model again for my local Chico's this week. I enjoy working with these fabulous women so much!



For those of you who were not able to join us, I am happy to share lots of pictures from the show.























































Everyone had a great time seeing all the new fall fashions, shopping, visiting and having fruit punch and snacks.
