Jeans & Denim - Sun Valley Style




The Casual Active Life







Last week was spent in stunning and breathtaking Sun Valley, Idaho with several girlfriends. Each day was packed with walking, hiking, biking, swimming and exploring the towns of Halley, Ketchum and Sun Valley.  A couple of the friends hiked Mt. Baldy while myself and another took the Gondola. The view was spectacular and lunch at the Roundhouse was the ultimate way to end the excursion.   Sun Valley is a place that is laid back and understated in apparel and actions.   In fact, upon arriving and visiting the local grocery store, a famous celebrity from Freaky Friday (2003) literally strolled past us sporting dark sunglasses on a mission to abscond with a food item or two. She even dropped some crackers but we all gracefully let her be herself. Ironically, I had just seen this movie two weeks ago for the millionth time and to see her up close and personal in the store and again immediately after in a photograph at the Sun Valley Lodge with her mother was indeed a Freaky Wednesday moment.  By the way, she looked fabulous decked out with black sunglasses and black apparel. 

After thinking about the chill environment in Sun Valley the idea of embroidered denim popped into mind.  Maybe it was the summer flowers, or the beautiful scenery that inspired me to venture down the embellished jean look for late summer and early fall.  Or the upcoming eclipse happening in a few days perhaps instills unity towards a common goal and springs forth happiness and playfulness across the magical land.  By the way, Sun Valley is expecting 100K out of town visitors so be prepared as all will be congested in arriving to a place to train the eyes on the sky.  Watch for wildlife, patterns on the ground, the stars that pop out and a varied amount of hues.  Most importantly, don't forget your special four eyes and of course an embellished jean jacket or jeans for the utmost enjoyment.

Be prepared, find joy in everyday activities and partake in the upcoming full eclipse on Monday, April 21, 2017 if you can.  Don't fret about the small things in life or negative vibes hitting the airwaves.  All the energy focused on foul energy can only makes one person sick mentally and physically - yourself.   Don't do it.   When getting set for the celebration, which will bring young and old alike, take a moment and relish the beauty of the world and the cosmos.  Chill and pick up the Sun Valley, Idaho mantra.  We are truly blessed.

Pink Obsession

Pretty in Pink 2019 Are you obsessed with the hue pink?  In 2018 and now in 2019, I am enthralled with the color pink.  My list extends from from pink flats, pink jackets, pink tops and rosy pink lipsticks though I am still fixated on red.  The message this Spring is to cloak yourself in a beautiful shade of pink.  The actual hue of pink conjures success, nice, romantic, approachable, feminine, bubble gum, cotton candy and a love for self and others.  Do you have your pink on?  Here are few favorites to set the stage for Spring 2019.  Strike a Pink Pose A pink coat is flattering and pretty all at once on the owner.   Here are a few that fit the bill.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

  First Glance Patience & Manners Please It is that time of year once again for the  Nordstrom Anniversary Sale .   Currently, you can preview the upcoming sale online.  This allows you to create a  "Wish List."   If you have a Nordstrom card, you can shop early.  For instance, Icon status begins on Monday, July 12th.  Check online for your start date.  The Nordstrom sale will open fully to everyone on Wednesday, July 28th .    Zen Master "Some people forget that kindness and manners are free."   A couple of comments before we discuss on what will sell out quickly.   Since the country is opening up after a year and half of shutdowns due to Covid 19 pandemic , it is imperative that you access your skills at being patient.  Lately, I have noticed that many are impatient in their cars, public transportation (ferries for me), and in public places where businesses and restaurants are struggling to serve and be open.  The rude behaviors and lack of manners has been

Yellow Mania Continues 2018

Yearly Yellow with a Happiness Vibe The happy hues of yellow in apparel remain vibrant and strong in 2018. Last year, you may recall my article on Yellow Apparel Spring 2017 published on April 5, 2017.   And, once again, I seem riveted on these naturally sunny tones that are spontaneous, signify warmth and most eagerly anticipated. Perhaps it is the time of the year with the dripping pools of water, rain, sleet, hail and yes snow that stimulates the mantra, "please let there be sun". Of course, if you are in Palm Desert, California or Scottsdale, Phoenix or a tropical climate yellow rays of sunshine are always forefront and center.  For the rest of us, we are ready to drink up a few bars of light.  And, if rays come forth for a  wee bit, we dance, run outside and have an extra kick in our step.  Yet, when the elements keep on pouring our way, it is time to bring out yellow in our apparel and accessories. While, we are perusing our closets, online stores etc., we
