Guest Bathroom Update (26) copy

My love for gold leaves started when I found this gold leaf tray to go in my guest bathroom.  Ever since then I’ve been spotting leaf themed items everywhere.

The other day I popped into Michael’s to pick up some craft paint and I spotted these cute ceramic leaves in their dollar section.  The leave came in a pack of two and were meant to be used as ornaments.  Ornaments would be cute but I immediately imagined these little leaf gems crafted into a necklace.

It’s about this time of year that I am sick of wearing winter closets and dream about warmer days and spring fashions.  I know many of you probably feel the same way.   Unfortunately we have a few more months of cold weather ahead so it’s time to refresh your wardrobe to give you a lift as we wait for spring to arrive.

Those of you who have read my blog for a while might know that I have a degree in fashion.  I spent 20 years working in the fashion industry and ever since I was a little girl, I have been passionate about fashion.  Today I’m going to share a few tips to help you refresh your winter/transition wardrobe and a few items that are worth investing in right now.  As you refresh your wardrobe, it’s also a great time to give some thought to your fashion style and whether or not you’re presenting the fashion statement you want to the world.

One of the gifts the hubby and I splurged on for Christmas was new iPhone 6’s for both of us.  So far I am loving all the upgraded features, bigger size and lighter weight.

I had my iPhone 5 for a couple of years and never invested in a pair of tech gloves that would allow me to operate during the cold months.  I would either take my leather gloves off or I’d wear my fingerless gloves which allowed me to use my phone but expose my fingers to the cold.

Since my brother knew I was getting a new phone he thought it was time I got a pair of tech gloves so I would stop complaining how cold my hand would get.

It’s a good thing that my brother is a techie and loves gadgets because it knew exactly which gloves to get that would merge my fashion sense with my tech needs.

UR Rusched Spandex Gloves--Dillards

These are the gloves he bought for me.  They are the U/R Rusched Gloves and are available at Dillard’s which are now on sale for $24.00.

What I love about these gloves is how sleek and stylish they are.  The rusched detail near the cuff is pretty and feminine and the line detail on the palm enhances the gripping details of the glove.

Rusched Spandex Gloves--Red

Instead of a single finger touch feature, these gloves feature touch capabilities in all 5 fingers.  That means you can use any finger on your phone screen and can easily touch and drag or expand images.  The gloves are also insulted and will keep you hands toasty warm.

Rusched Spandex Gloves--Fossil Grey

If you’re in need of a great pair of stylish tech gloves I highly recommend these.

Here in Atlanta, I think our string of hot days is over and cooler  fall weather is here to stay.  This has prompted me to get  busy  and complete my summer to fall closet transition.


Every year as I begin to remove the summer items from my closet, I challenge myself to think about ways I might we able to wear each piece of clothing into the new season so I can maximize my investment. There are some pieces of clothing where the fabric, pattern or color just won’t work in cooler weather but for others there is hope.

I remember carrying a backpack years ago and how much I loved them.  Backpacks were wonderful for traveling and shopping totally hands free is great.  Just like all fashion statements, the backpack has found its way back and has once again become a hot trend for fall 2014 and spring 2015.

My ideal backpack styles are crafted of leather, have a sleek appearance and classic design details.  Here are seven of my top picks for 2014.

I love the styling of the shoe closet!  Such a great way to display the pieces you have and create wearable combos at the same time.



Love this idea for Up-Styling a piece of Ikea furniture!



Since my handbags are in constant rotation, I just might have to try making one of these for myself.
