Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week and are looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. The forecast is rain, rain, storm, rain, etc. Joe isn’t happy because he can’t play golf or go flying, and I need a break in the weather so I can take some photos. If this keeps up, I’m going to have to start putting out articles using photos from stores or making collages.

Joe tells me all of the time that I am a modern-day Sears catalog. He says that all I do is model clothing and add a description which is what a catalog does. Ummm, I can’t really argue with his assessment since that is kind of what I do. Lol! I tried to sell him on the idea that I was more like a Glamour magazine, but he just laughed at that idea. What do you gurls think? I need to have a come back for him, and I’ve got nothing.

I’ve got a couple of trips coming up in September and another one in October. I’ll be heading to Palm Springs and Dallas in September and to Rosemary Beach in October. When I travel, I love to pack dresses because they are a one-and-done item, and I look for ones that are comfortable and chic. This Rainbow Stripe Maxi Dress is so fun and colorful! I planned on wearing this when my granddaughter had her birthday party and then completely forgot until I saw my pictures. This dress is by one of my new favorite brands, Draper James, and it will probably be going with me to Florida in October…weather permitting. I’m wearing a size large, and that size fits me great.

I’ve been shocked at how much I like these Statement Tassel Earrings and how often I wear them. I’m always wearing my 18 Kt Gold Vermeil Cross Necklace and the Chain Link Necklace from Kendra Scott. I did find a similar link necklace at a better price point from Walmart that you might like. My Lilly Pulitzer Cane Tote is one that makes a statement. I won’t carry this all of the time, but for special occasions, this is going to be the WOW factor.

I’ve found three similar and more affordable Summer Tote Bags for you, and I’ll include the photo below. To go to the bag, simply click on the photo, and it will take you to the website.

This is the best photo I’ve ever taken of these Embellished T-Strap Sandals. Lol! They are the perfect little summer sandal because they can go with pretty much everything, They look great with dresses and shorts, and I’ve worn them with jeans also. The different size rhinestones add some bling to your look, and I think they are super cute. These run TTS, and I’m wearing a size 9.

  1. I would love to see a blog or video someday on how you store and organize your clothes and accessories!

  2. You have inspired me on my fashion game so much! I get so many compliments on my wardrobe, and I always give you credit. It’s hard as a 50something woman to try to cut through the fashion clutter, find what is trending – but not trendy, and even if I can’t afford exactly what you’re wearing, I can look for similar items in my budget. You save me time and stress about what to wear! You’re not a catalog, you’re a fashion mentor!

  3. You’re real and of the moment,Tania! You have never reminded me of a catalog. Fashion blogging is on another level entirely.

  4. Lol…that sounds like something my husband would say. I googled fashion influencer and in my opinion you are a modern day, hip, business woman. Then I googled catalog and that’s really systematic and inflexible. Soooo not the same, sorry Joe. Happy Friday lol.

    1. Susan, I just went in and updated the post with 3 affordable and similar bags. To get the links to those bags, just click on the photo of the bag(s) you like, and it will take you to the website.

  5. Love the dress – it’s fabulous.

    For Joe: Sears? Gears? Cheers? Who cares? I’m making’ a living!


  6. Tell Joe that we sure look forward to your posts lots more than we ever looked forward to a catalog!!! You bring a lot more to the table, love the devotions, the family stories, especially the Joe stories , all the different types and price points of clothing, hair and makeup tips , and just general fun!!!! ❤️
