Show me your Skimmies

This week over at Fredericksburg Parent, I’m talking about a secret to combatting thigh rub in the summer. Yup, I’m going there.  See my face??? It’s serious business.

Under every dress or skirt that I wear, I always have on my secret weapon.  Skimmies! There are a few options on combatting the thigh rub, but I focus on my favorite option.  So head on over to my column at Fredericksburg Parent and give it a read.

Thanks ya’ll! I’m waiting for my much needed hair appointment.  Stay tuned for posts about our trip to Luray Caverns, and a look ahead to fall style.

Rule of Three, Summer Style

Hi everyone! How has your summer been? We just got back from a day trip to Luray Caverns, and ya’ll it’s worth the trip.  Crazy crazy beautiful.  Perfect for a day trip, for us, because it’s about 2 hours away. A side note; my tech guy is figuring out a better way to post pictures here, since I used up all my storage.  LOL. Until we figure out a new way, I will be posting from my Instagram account, which actually is a good, sneaky way for me to remind you to follow me on Instagram…it’s a win-win.  😉

My husband told me that two hour drives are about his limit for a day trip.  I can apply the title of this post … “The Rule of Three” to hours driving; three hours and we stay over night, it’s our driving rule of Three. Lol.

We completed the maze!!!! #rockstars #momlife #wedidit #maze #gardenmaze #beprepared

Seriously though, my post this week over at my Fredericksburg Parent column, is about applying “The Rule of Three” to summer style. Three items to your outfit, shoes don’t count. It’s tricky to do when it’s warm, because layering is sometimes impossible and uncomfortable when it’s a million degrees outside. Fun fact: it’s always a cool 52 degrees (give or take a few degrees) inside Luray Caverns.  It’s like natures very own air conditioning!

I struggled with what to wear, because I felt like we were in two different climates (which we were). Undergound and above ground.  This romper was perfect, it’s by Mimi Chica and I just got it in my ThredUP box! It wasn’t uncomfortably hot, and the long sleeves were perfect from below the surface.

Anyways, the rule of three is tricky to do when it’s hot, but It can be done, I promise.  Head on over to Fredericksburg Parent and read about how I try (and sometimes fail) at doing the rule of three during the summer.


When you’re done reading, come hang out with me in the naturally air conditioned caverns.  I will bring the wine, you bring the snacks.

Vintage Love… Style or Wine?

I totally forgot to write a post earlier this week! Sorry about that! I’m going to chalk it up to the heat and to my kids making me crazy.  There was a thing yesterday where they had water, covering the bathroom floor and counters. Ya’ll is it time for them  to go back to school yet?!!!?


It looked similar to this….but you know, it was inside, not a pool and they weren’t wearing swimsuits.



Anyways, my post this week over at Fredericksburg Parent, is all about my love for vintage stuff.  I do love me a good vintage wine, but, this is a style blog, so I’ll stick to style talk… and type while I drink my wine.  Ha!  This vintage bag made its glorious arrival to my closet recently, and it makes me so happy!  I look at it and for a second, I forget all about the water incident… but then there was a marker incident……quick, where’s the happy bag?!?



That’s better.  LOL.  I really feel like you must have things in your closet, actually not just your closet but your entire house,  that simply bring you joy.  I don’t care if it’s a crazy dog shaped purse, or a Christmas sweater, or a well loved beaten up old chair, just something that makes you smile.



For me it’s,  anything vintage.  Head on over to Fredericksburg Parent and read up on my vintage love affair.  And, it’s not just limited to clothing, Have you noticed that I love me some old buildings and walls???



In the meantime, I will be sitting on my antique couch, drinking a vintage wine, and hugging my adorable vintage bag.  Lol.


P.s. More info on those red shoes (they aren’t vintage but they are a wow piece), and floral dresses in another post.
