Mustard Yellow, Starting with the Basics Fall is on its way, but very slowly here in the Deep South, still hot and sticky.  In the meantime, the calendar says otherwise, so now is the time to spruce up your Fall wardrobe.  I hope you enjoy this versatile 4-day series.  One easy and inexpensive way to perk things up is to bring in a new color and a few accessories for the season.  This year the big Fall color is mustard yellow —  I know what you are saying, and probably shaking your head back and forth, “Oh, I can’t wear yellow, especially that weird yellow”…. am I right?  LOL.  Let me show you how, be brave! Let’s start with this basic blouse.  You can build several different looks with this soft and flowy tunic with accessories, two ways to tuck and by adding a third piece. I just received this lightweight…

Casual Pinstripe with a Pop Summer is winding down on the calendar here in Georgia, but it is still hot which could last through October.  In the meantime, casual cooler clothing with a few subtle options gradually carries us into Fall.  This pinstripe t-shirt paired with dark cropped jeans is a mix of Summer and a hint at Fall with the dark denim.   The nautical/beachy look to the t-shirt pops off of the dark jeans and backdrops the focal gold necklace – other jewelry is kept to a minimum for this casual look with a simple gold bracelet and earrings.

Seasonal Transition with Kimono Style Kimonos are a great affordable way to extend your wardrobe by adding something special to casual outfits for a completed chic look.  There are so many styles and colors available, the combinations are endless.  This khaki version is a nice transition into Fall or Spring.  I purchased this kimono from Amazon, shopping links are provided below for your convenience. // Kahki Floral Kimono // I am very pleased with the quality and easy care of this lightweight kimono from Amazon.  Since we are still HOT here in Georgia, it will be a few months before we actually feel any cool from Fall weather.  In the meantime, this khaki floral kimono is a nice transition from Summer to Fall with the neutral tone and just a touch of floral.  It is a nice weight to keep the chill off when shopping, dining out or going to…

Watercolor for Multiple Seasons Ya’ll, I usually don’t wear things too splashy or loose, but Honey bought this watercolor crepe blouse for me back in May for Mother’s Day.  I don’t like to wear too much extra fabric, but this seems like just enough.  He has NEVER read my blog and has cotton in his ears when I talk about it, LOL.  But, he must have been paying attention to some of the things I have been wearing.  Although, he prefers that I not show my “body outline” too much.  Well, as long as I have some type of figure left, I will “show it” with discretion, for the sake of style and my Flair Seekers who need inspiration, right ladies?
