Springing into Sweaters

  We are now 30 days from Spring Break! Whoo hoo. Here in Alabama it is already feeling like Spring. But that means that the mornings and nights are still cool. I try to buy a couple of Spring  sweaters each year because I find that my body takes a little while to acclimate to the warmer weather (kind of like still using your seat warmers in the car even when it gets warm). As you are transitioning into a new season, you want a sweater that is pale in color so you can wear it with white jeans or even a pair of shorts. I like a lightweight cashmere because I find it breathes easier. I know it is an investment but if taken care of it will last a long […]

A little online shopping

Sorry I meant to get this out earlier but between too much tryptophan and and a little football game called the Iron Bowl (as well as my Vanderbilt Commodores!), I got a little behind. But with computer in hand I’ve got you hooked up on some of the best deals for you and the ones you need to find the best gift. Ann Taylor 50% off purchase + Free Shipping. I love the plaid tartan scarf in this camel color combination, a little twist on the usual red. Banana Republic 50% off (no exclusions). How often does this come around when Banana Republic offers a discount but there is no exclusions…uh never, so go take advantage of it. I love this Side Tie Camel Blazer with a touch of faux fur. But like […]

After work comfort

I’m the worst for after work for putting on shorts and running shoes. Y’all know that because I’ve blogged about tennis shoes for after work here. I can’t help it. After wearing high heels all days my tootsies need a breather. But even my family has enough of the work out wear.  Since we are not hibernating inside and hanging with our neighbors after work because the days are longer I need to up the cool factor Bring on AS 98. I found these at our local shoe boutique, Gus Mayer, and was sold. I knew I didn’t want a wedge because I truly wanted something that I could throw on with a pair of shorts or jeans and be able to go from walking my dog to having a glass of […]

Low Tied . . .

Let’s face it:  even though it doesn’t really seem like the MVP of your whole pool sitch, the pool/beach shoe is a total baller in its own right.  What we are really looking for here is something completely effortless that kind of goes away. . . And, if it doesn’t?  Well . . . you’re left looking like a rookie — straight from the farm leagues, right?  I mean how hard do you have to work to get it wrong??? Actually, it’s a lot easier to get it wrong than you would think.   Here’s where my head is:  I am not wanting a challenging buckle situation.  I don’t want a clunky wooden clog.  I don’t want thick or heavy ankle straps.  No heels over an inch high or a steep pitch.  I love a slide. […]

Friends and Family Listen Up

I love this time of year especially when my “in” box has a Friends and Family Coupon. Yesterday I received TWO. Drum roll please… The first was from Equipment. With the code EQFRIENDS you will receive 25% off your purchase. I love love love their silk shirts. You must go buy their classic white slim shirt. If you have one go buy another one. I’m telling you stop right now and go! I wear mine at least once a week this time of year. It is timeless and you will get a ton of wear out of it. Ok but if you already have two of the classic white shirts then here are a few items that I added to my cart. From cashmere sweaters to silk shirts I promise you won’t […]
