Striped Maxi and Brown Accents: A Remix

I almost didn't wear this dress on Sunday because I had worn it earlier this summer and thought I wouldn't be able to blog about it.  Can't have the same outfit twice, right? Then it occurred to me that I could style it differently. Duh! The benefits of fashion blogging: learn how to style a dress in a different way.
So here it is. I'm remixing the Floor Length Striped Maxi. I do love the dress mainly because it's so comfortable and flares slightly at the bottom to create an a line shape for my inverted triangle body.

I am challenging myself to style it for the colder weather; so stay tuned. (Not looking forward to the cold weather though).

Striped Sleeveless Top: Three Ways to Wear it

Finally an outfit post. I just can't explain why the pictures I've taken in the past few weeks have not made it to the blog. 
Below is an outfit from Saturday; I'm also showing three ways to wear the black and white sleeveless top. As you can see, it's a great summer staple and can be layered for fall. I would also wear it with shorts and probably tucked into a skirt. I realize that all three looks are black and white combinations. The top would also look great with green cropped pants. Which look is your favorite?

A Taste of Orlando, Florida

Hello, I 'm back! I mentioned in the last post that I was on vacation and also went for a training in Orlando. I've actually been back for a while but outfit posts just not working out lately. 
Here are a few pictures form the trip. We operated on a very busy schedule as we had to hit Universal Studios, Sea World, Aquatica and Downtown Disney. We even rushed to the airport from one of the parks.

Casual Cobalt and Mint

Nothing spectacular about this outfit. My comfy look from last week for running around and choir rehearsal. I'm currently on vacation after a three day training with John Maxwell, so enjoy some of my old posts. Will be back soon.
Keep on loving life and keep moving in the direction of your dreams one step at a time.
