Hello Monday!

I came upon this beautiful wall inscription while walking in  Brentwood the other day.

A perfect reminder to us all, that love and life for that matter… may not be perfect BUT it’s in all of the imperfections that we learn and discover more ourselves. Love is the key and to that I hope that your week ahead is filled with all those perfect and imperfect moments that make you LOVE life even more than before.

Warm Weather Style Options.

I hope you had a festive and fabulous 4th of July. Wasn’t it beyond joyful to have life and all it’s fireworks back?!As we start a new work week, I am  writing this post in answer to a question from a lovely reader asking: What does one wear when jeans just aren’t cutting it on warm weather days?

115 degrees outside in LA and opting to wear a Sundress I made with a favorite pattern from Vogue.

The good news is that there are oodles of fashionable options that  you can choose from -no matter what your size or age. My ongoing mantra for everything you wear is that FIT is the Number 1 component to make sure you look stylish.

  1. The Summer Dress: O.K. so this is an absolute no brainer because dresses are not only comfortable but they keep you cool!

Halters are back….

Easy breezy flowing dresses

2. Skirts...The number ONE trending item this season.

    • Long/short/fitted or flared you can’t go wrong with a beautiful skirt.

Skirts are the number one apparel items trending for Summer.

 

Vogue pattern #8882

Keep it cool and classy with beautiful coverage.

3. Capris.. Always a  great idea for Summer . Pair with a perfect top and whah lah instant outfit that looks chic and stylish.

Cute capris are always a summer staple

 

Beautiful fitted capris with a long flowy top are a perfect solution if you want to disguise a heavier bottom area.

4. Jumpsuits are sooo In and come  in a wide array of styles and colors.

Summer jumpsuits are Major for the Season. So many options to choose from and soooo stylish.

Jumpsuit love in a lightweight denim.

5. Shorts…A Summer main stay. If however your legs are in need of a little coverage you have a few solutions: a) Self tanner can disguise a wide assortment of flaws b.) opt for pairing shorts with a  kimono for coverage of those not so “pretty areas” usually associated with aging and loss of collagen.

If you have great legs (translation no dimpling) then you can opt for some sensational summer suiting with SHORTS!

LOVE a Kimono!! Wear it over shorts to hide a multitude of sins or pair it with a bevy of beautiful summer selections…pants, capris, shorts, jeans)

Summertime Table Settings

Posted By: Terri
Category: Uncategorized

Image courtesy of Tumblr/Original Source unavailable

Well it’s been a minute and what a weekend it was…I hope you had a relaxing and fun filled Saturday and Sunday.

My weekend was filled spending hours on end with…the cable guy. Yes ,THE CABLE Guy, and although he was a very nice gentlemen- let me say that without phone, internet and TV including Wi Fi-one might feel that they have been sent to another planet. Don’t get me wrong, I do appreciate some major down time filled with silence to collect my thoughts and decompress  however, being devoid of any and all methods available to communicate (without the use of technology)  to reach another human being on Earth is challenging to say the least.

This turn of events got me to thinking. “What did we do before technology-I’m talking ALL of it. Cell phones, text, computers, Wi Fi? Oh, that’s right- we actually spoke to each other in person.  I often wonder if  talking in person or phone has become obsolete- because more times than not, I find people prefer to text rather than pick up a phone.

So here’s a little suggestion for this upcoming Summer: Make a plan /or plans to get out and be with other people . Converse aka TALK and hold a conversation (not text) , share a meal ,reach out and do something with a group of friends.  Savor every moment that you can because we are long overdue (about 15 months overdue). I hope this Summer is filled with wonderful moments that bring beautiful memories for you and your family.

Now if you thought I was just going to yammer on about bringing people together without some stylish inspo..that would be  a NO. I thought you might enjoy a bevy of beautiful Summertime table settings  to get you in the mood and invite and entertain family and friends.  Enjoy!!!

Tips for Setting the perfect Summer Table

  1. Pick a theme
  2. Pick a color scheme
  3. Think about items you already have in your home to decorate:
    1. Bowls  or glass containers filled with fresh fruit
    2. Bowls of  glass containers filled with colorful vegetables
    3. Candles, candles and more candles
    4. Flowers are ALWAYS a good idea
    5. Seashells
    6. Rocks in various colors
    7. Greenery
    8. Woven wicker baskets/placemats/bowls
  4. Have fun and don’t overthink things. If you don’t have enough seating -roll out numerous blankets/pillows and set up your party picnic style !
