This time of year, I get tons of requests for bathing suit recommendations, so I’m putting together my 2017 Swimsuit Guide for Women Over 40! This is a big task because every woman’s body is different and we all have different features we want to camouflage or flaunt, but I’ll do my best to cover all the bases. 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 First let me just say that I
Looking for wearable summer fashion inspiration for real women? These posts are chock full of the latest summer fashion trends translated into real life outfits for the average suburban mom.
For a spring or summer date night, you can’t go wrong with a cute black top and crisp white jeans. I know I do this combination a lot, but it never gets old to me. When I wear a black and white outfit, I like to bring in a color or pattern to add interest. Sometimes I do that with my handbag, but usually with footwear.

Good morning, friends! We’ve almost made it through the week! I’ve been asked for outfit ideas for weddings, graduations, and other spring events, so today I’m styling a gorgeous seamed sheath that I think would be perfect for many of these types of occasions.

Hello and happy Wednesday! I’m back with one more summery outfit before we dive into fall fashion tomorrow! I didn’t intend to post two cold shoulder tops in a row.

Today I’m back with the last installment in our Coast-to-Coast Summer Survival series. It’s hard to believe it is, indeed, the end of summer. It still feels very summery outside, but the kids started back to school yesterday, and all signs point to fall. Meanwhile, we still have our last big summer weekend ahead of us. Here in the States, we will be celebrating Labor Day next Monday, creating a long weekend that usually means one final summer BBQ. We usually keep it
I’m back with another post in our Coast-to-Coast Summer Survival series and today we’re talking about a summer night out. I love putting date night outfits together, so I’ve been looking forward to this one! My idea of a fun summer night out is dining with good friends or my husband at an outdoor restaurant — preferably one with a view, but I think dining al fresco is fun no matter what. My husband and I love to go out to eat. We’re
