The Long and Short of Shorts

Shorts are short...like super short these days. Like 'half ass hanging out the back' short. But I, as a 48 year old woman am NOT interested in half of my ass hanging out the back of my shorts. I'm a little modest and like my ass fully covered - thank you very much.

Best In Brit

So...have you had enough of the Royal Wedding? Did you wake up at 5 a.m. on Saturday to watch Oprah arrive? I did.  Which dress did you prefer? The ceremony dress or the evening dress?  I think I'll save my opinion for a Best Dressed post later this week.

Hotel Hangouts

Can you even believe the long weekend is upon us already? Where has May gone? May is my favourite month of the year. Not only is it the start of Spring, but then there's  Mother's Day, my birthday and of course my namesake holiday weekend.

How to wear a Kimono

The Kimono. I'm having a serious love/hate relationship with this wardrobe piece. Every time I try one I feel like I'm walking through a field at Coachella. But it turns out that music festivals aren't the only place you can wear kimonos.

Recently I Read...

So much sadness in the news that some days I can't even bare to pick up the newspaper or scroll through my Facebook feed. Nevertheless, I have come across some things that you might find interesting to read and useful in your life. 

Beating the Blues

They say April showers bring May flowers. But what happens when April rolls around and your January blahs have morphed into the April blues...with no flowers in sight? You can get seriously down.

Best in Blouse

By definition a blouse is a lightweight, loose fitting garment worn by women. Are you a blouse girl or are you more into the structure of shirt. I like both, but find myself wearing shirts (and sweaters, mostly tee's) more often.

Things for Spring

I love the newness of Spring. New flowers, new grass, new fashion, not necessarily in that order. Picking up a few current things to refresh my wardrobe always puts me in a good mood. I'm definitely a junkie from the serotonin rush I get from shopping.
