As I was perusing through my summer wardrobe, I thought I would try mixing up some new with older pieces, to make outfits for the weekend.

I plan to be entertaining grand kids and here are 2 outfits that I feel I can wear to enjoy time in the park with them. Plus, I like my clothes to give me energy if I need them too (that is by adding WOOD energy from Fashion Feng Shui) and wearing clothes with stretch and ease of movement does that!

Here is what I plan to wear:

  1. White knit capris from Nygard. Floral, flowy top from Nygard collection.
  2. Denim capris from HUE. Navy and white striped top from Old Navy.
  3. And of course a comfortable pair of sandals by Sketcher, in navy.

Take time to make the most of wearing what is in your closet. What do you want the outfit for? Attending a BBQ? Driving to explore a scenic town? Walks in the park?

You won’t know what is in your closet, if you don’t spend some time giving it TLC.

YOU Could Have This Too!

Hello from North Bay. I zipped up for three days to help my sister and of course to swim and visit. Also, it was to escape the extra hot, humid weather of the south.

It takes me minutes to pack because I follow a formula that I am about to REVEAL to you too!

I brought 2 pair of capris and 3 tops with me. One is long sleeved for the evenings and cool mornings.

I wore a long summer dress as I drove here because I don’t like to wear constricting waist bands in the car for a longer drive. Besides it can serve as a bathing suit cover up and if I wanted something for going out for dinner, I am all set.

Weddings… Beach, Garden, Traditional… OH MY!

Whether you are Mother of the Bride or Groom, or attending a wedding this year, I am sure you have asked yourself, “What am I going to wear?”

You are not alone. Now with all the various locations and times of weddings, it can be even more confusing.

I am here to guide you with 3 tips to get started.

(1) Location, location, location:

Where the wedding takes place plays a big part in what is appropriate to wear.

A wedding in a big hotel or even a country club is going to be more formal.

A beach wedding is more casual and a garden wedding will be in between.

If the wedding is outdoors, consider wearing a long sundress and beware… no spiked heels since you will be sinking into the sand or grass.

(2) Time of day:

The key here is that night-time weddings are dressier.

Daytime weddings are informal or semi- formal. You can wear a 2 piece suit or top and satiny type of skirt, or a cocktail dress. It is best to avoid wearing black to a daytime wedding.

DON’T go ultra casual to a wedding… it is the Bride’s important day so respect her and the occasion!

(3) Invitation specific:

Many invitations specify the type of attire, yet you may still be wondering.

Casual: This may mean a beach wedding, a BBQ, a barn? These may not mean a long dress, however, it still means you need to dress up and the big change will be the shoes.

Cocktail: Here is pretty straight forward… a cocktail dress is the most appropriate. This also generally means it is not a floor length gown.

Black tie: If the invitation says Black Tie, you will see floor length gowns, yet you can be elegant in a cocktail dress, especially if it comes to the knee. Add your accessories here to take it to a higher level.

White tie: This is as formal as you can get!!

Casual dresses are from ZuZu Fashion Boutique in Barrie.

9 Easy Tips on How to Shop When You Don’t Have Time

bigstock-Happy-mature-woman-with-laptop-48317717What do you do when you feel like you have the urge for something new but no time to shop? Everyone’s busy, but here are 9 easy tips to keep you feeling good when time is tight.

  1. Shop your closet. You already have a boutique. Spend time putting three outfits together this week. Mixing up what you already can feel just as exciting as buying something new.
  1. Shop trusted consignment stores. If there’s a consigner that seems to consistently reflect your taste and the sizes fit your body, ask the store owner to call you when that person has brought in new pieces.
  1. Have your “Style Words” with you. What is the message you want to convey through your clothing?  Trendy, dramatic, approachable, sensuous, classic? Does your new purchase fall into any of the categories on your card? Next time we are together, we can review them.
  1. Always carry your colour palette with you. It can easily be tucked into your purse. This way your new purchase will mix and match with the items in your closet or suitcase!
  1. Shop while you’re traveling, but only if you stick close to your style formula. Some things bought in Ecuador might look great in Ecuador but when you get them home, you may have a “What was I thinking” moment. If you travel with a companion to larger cities and have time on your hands, shopping can actually be relaxing. Even if you just window shop, when you get back home your eyes will be able to edit what’s in the stores much faster because of your earlier shopping field trip.
  1. Do you have long layovers in airports? Some airport shopping might be just the thing. Again, stick to your style formula! Some of the shops in airports offer fun style solutions that might be out of the ordinary from where you live.
  1. While you’re at the airport, pick up a fashion magazine from another country. England’s Harper Bizarre, French Elle, or Australia’s Vogue are great choices. Start a style file by ripping out things that appeal to you. When you get home, hand them over to your image consultant or stylist and ask her to help you interpret the looks in your price point.
  1. If this isn’t the right time to spend time on your wardrobe, look in your closet and see what brands are already working for you. Go online and see if there’s something that strikes you this year from what that brand is offering. If their lines stay true to size, ordering and filling in with a few new things could be a breeze!
  1. Hire an image consultant. They know the resources, the trends, and the timing of when things are going to be in the stores. Additionally, an image consultant studies you and your lifestyle and interprets what’s best for you from the overwhelming selections each season. She can make your shopping time so efficient. The results will exceed your expectations! Isn’t it time you contact your consultant today?

Until next time,
