end of summer styling....


Yep...I told you I love this Panama hat for summer
so much quick polish...
in so little time...
I literally throw up my hair and go.

add some big glasses and red lips
and my summer cold is camouflaged.


on goes my newest gold  vintage brooch necklace...
and a  couple of bangles
and trench
and I have
quick out the door polish.


switching to my short go to 
  jacket
the outfit works perfectly to
 handle our summer heat
 with some panache.


without the jacket...
I can take off the accessories...
and head right back into the studio...

My goal with these overalls has been to style outfits
that can go from working in my studio...
to my son's football pickups..
and errands...
and still able to transition 
to dinner out with my husband....

All from 
one base
and just
 changing accessories...

that's a lot of styling versatility!


My overalls have been a great go to summer piece...
as I've shown here and here.
I have really enjoyed the creative process
of seeing just how much i can do with a basic piece.
(don't worry...I'm done with these :)  )










as always dear friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life



thanks so for stopping by

  13. You are always perfectly dressed and accessorized! Your vintage pin necklace inspired me to find a necklace that I can use to create my own. I just found some at Target. I am so excited to try creating my own. I think the best thing about it is the ability to change it and make something entirely new.
