Summer Fun, The Sequel

Hi again. Happy Fourth of July! What are your plans for the day? What are you going to wear?? I already posted my Fourth of July style post a few weeks back, find it here, so how about we talk about beating the heat with fun jewelry instead??



It’s one hundred million degrees outside, humidity is high, I start sweating as soon as I step on toe out the door… but it’s ok.  I mean, when you can play with fun colorful summer accessories and try to beat the heat with sass…it’s got to be ok, right?



So last weeks post was about summer accessories  and I had promised that I would write another post all about summer jewelry.  And I did, I can’t let you down.  Go on over to my blog at Fredericksburg Parent and check it out.  I talk about my favorite brands for fun jewelry and how I work them into outfits.



Summer is the best time to bring out the color and sassy attitude.  Because, you know, if someone doesn’t like your style choices, you can always blame the heat.



Ha.  “The heat made me do it.”…   “It’s so humid out here, I don’t enjoy it, so I just HAVE to wear something I love to brighten my day.”

That something for me is big, colorful, jewelry.  Love it.



Join me over at Fredericksburg Parent to read my new post! But first, set some sparklers and fireworks off and grab a beer… or two.  Because…priorities. LOL.  Enjoy your Fourth, friends.

It’s Summer, Time for Fun!

As I am writing this blog post, we are on the road for vacation, headed to our usual spot, Lancaster, PA.  We love it there. I will write a blog post about our vacation fun another day, but for now, I’d like to talk about Summer Style! Over on my blog at Fredericksburg Parent, I talk about how summer is the perfect time to bring out the fun stuff.  I’m talking Colors! Sandals! Bright jewelry and accents! Pom poms!!!!!


Wait, did I just say Pom poms? Maybe the heat has gotten to me, because here in Virginia it does get really hot, really fast.  Why would I, miss edgy dark lady, like Pom poms?!?


Because, my friends, it’s summer time and in summer time, you can let out your inner crazy. For me, fun accessories are a must when it’s 200 million degrees outside.  They have a way of distracting you from the heat.


And because I have a lot of things to say on this topic, and because there are a lot of brands I’d like to feature, I’ve split the topic of summer accessories into two parts.  So, In my post at Fredericksburg Parent, this week,  I talk about clutches.  Bright, fun, Pom Pom adorned clutches.  So go on over and check that out.  Come join me in my crayon box! I have enough Pom poms and glitter for everyone!!!!!


Stay tuned for next weeks topic all about summer jewelry! More color, tassels and fun! In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy our week away with my little loves (and my big one too)

Be Like a Firework…

It’s that time of year again! The Fourth of July is right around the corner, can you believe it? Summer has arrived. Here in Virginia, I haven’t seen our firework stands opened yet, so it hasn’t quite hit me yet that summer is officially here.

Admittedly, the Fourth is not my favorite holiday.  But I thought that I would discuss style associated with it.  Yes, red, white and blue…stars and stripes and flags, oh my!!!

Over on my blog at Fredericksburg Parent, I talk about different ways to do “patriotic” that might not be the usual flag tshirt and whatnot. I tried to use what I had in my closet and tried to make up outfits that use versatile pieces.

Even my husband was kind of in the spirit when we did this little Fourth of July inspired photo shoot, except, he didn’t have any red on.  He’s the white and blue to my red.  LOL.  Maybe he should have grabbed a red tie? I don’t even know. Or, I could have worn a red dress and stood next to him! Next time.

Are you ready for the Fourth of July? Have any fun plans? Going to any parties or BBQ’s? Did you remember to invite me?!? That’s ok.  I ain’t mad at ya.


Head on over to Fredericksburg Parent and check out my post.  It’s the least you can do since you forgot to invite me to the party.  😉 Lol.
