Everyday Women. Extraordinary Style.

Like many of you, I’m juggling a house, husband, kids, and a full-time job. I’m also struggling with many of the same issues. The biggest…? Finding time to tackle it all, and realizing it’s okay to put your needs first once in a while.

While I look far from perfect most days, I have perfected the art of easy, attainable style for busy, everyday women. It comes down to having the right pieces in your wardrobe and knowing how they work best on your body.

It is my mission to not only remind you that it is okay to take time for you, but also to help you achieve amazing style that is simple, affordable, and works for your size, shape and lifestyle.

Everyday women can have extraordinary style!

What To Wear To Your Fall/Winter Black Tie Event or Gala

If I had a gala, or black tie event this winter, I would definitely buy this Alice + Olivia skirt and top from Neiman Marcus.

It is so gorgeous!

I felt like a princess wearing this full skirt… BUT, I think the crop top adds some edge and modernity to the evening look!

The top is a little loose around your torso, so no excess baby skin over-lapping. Yea!

And, let’s talk about the color. EMERALD. Such a lovely, standout color and one of the big color stories of the season.

If you want to skip the crop top/skirt option, but like the overall look, be sure to shop the BLUE dress option below.


I think the moto jacket and jewelry add some edginess to the look.

The full skirt would work well on a triangle (conceal hips), inverted triangle (add hips), and rectangular body types (add hips). So cool how the skirt can pull double duty!

This is a tasteful way of wearing a crop top over 40, just show a sliver of skin.

The skirt should be a bit tighter around my waist which would mean even less skin exposure if I tailored it properly.

Meet and Greet Event at Elaine Turner Boutique

I don’t do a lot of events, simply because I just don’t have time, but when Elaine Turner’s peeps call… I answer.

I am a big fan of the Alamo Heights ET crew, and of course a huge fan of Elaine’s.

I had the privilege of interviewing Elaine several years ago for San Antonio Magazine (click here for full article), and she couldn’t have been more generous, funny and humble.

For those who don’t know who Elaine Turner is… the Houston native is opening up boutiques all over the country, and is on course to build her very own ‘Burch-like’ fashion empire!


I will be at the store this Friday from 12pm to 2pm with my buddy, and fellow YouTuber, Marnie Goldberg (MsGoldGirl).

There will be champagne, sweet treats from Bird Bakery, shopping (of course) and raffle prizes…!

Please stop by and say, Hi!

As always, thank you for your support. I appreciate all of you, and would love to see you!
