Spring is Coming

I think the time has come to sport bright colors and launch ourselves into Spring 2021.  Images of orange, pink, red, yellow and lime greens come to mind.  March is around the corner and soon the flowers will begin to open, blue skies may appear, and a fresh new world is about to burst forth.  I also get the strong sense that people are beginning to feel confident and resuming some of their favorite activities.  For instance, where I play tennis masked, several of my friends have recently come back.  Seeing their twinkling eyes and masked faces brings joy to my heart.

Love is in the Air

Speaking of my heart, I want to thank everyone who made my birthday extra special this month.  It was a "big" one and the love and kindness was overwhelming.  I am not one who likes lots of attention, so I was floored with the outpouring of love.    

It is true if you are positive, open, giving and listen to others with light and love, you will be surrounded throughout your life with people who support and inspire.   I was fortunate to belong to sorority, have friends from childhood, my career, tennis, charity work and my other places that I have walked in this life.  And, of course, a shout out to my extraordinary husband, daughter, my two brothers, and my friends who are my family.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you for making my life complete! 

Here are my choices for a few pops of color to add to your wardrobe and illuminate your day.

Anything Pink






Orange Spice














Yellow Mellow






There you have it!  Step into spring with vibrant hues adding sunshine to your world.  In fact, today I wore an all-orange tennis outfit with orange tights to the tennis courts.  I envisioned orange sorbet or a creamsicle which added joy to my morning. A woman stopped me and said, "I love your outfit. It is so cheery."   I said, "Thank you.  You made my day."  

Add sunshine to your world through apparel and accessories.  While you are at it spread rainbow magic to everyone you meet.  Spring is coming!!!

Tee-Shirts - Rag & Bone

  Ultimate Comfort "The tans will fade but the memories will last forever."  Town & Country Summer is coming.   You can feel it especially now with the sunshine filling the land in the Pacific Northwest.  The mornings are crisp with afternoons that are warm with a slight breeze.  The blue skies combined with the yellow daffodils, pink magnolia blossoms, flowers appearing, green trees, snow covered mountains and endless green growth is magnificent.  The eye is endless entertained, and the balm of the sun soothes the weary after months of rain, sleet, hail, snow and cold.  Soon we will be storing our cashmere sweaters and pulling out simple tee-shirts, shorts, bathing suits, hats and sunscreen. Overall, it is a happy time especially this year now more than ever.  We can finally breathe a sigh of relief.   While we are embracing the long awaited change, I have found the perfect tee-shirt for the Summer months to come. Rag & Bone is the answer once again. The quality of t

Rag & Bone Sweaters

  Winter Sale Pixabay - No Attribution Required We live for sales these days!  Do we not?  Getting a deal on well made, designed clothing with a percent off. What more can we ask for? Currently, there are fantastic price decreases on one of my favorite brands, Rag and Bone.  During the winter months, and even in early Spring and Fall, there is nothing better than a warm cashmere sweater to drape yourself in against the chill.   Of course, I must recommend purchasing a sweater in a classic shape that is timeless rather than on trend.  Classic or Trendy?  Which brings up a good point?  There are always new trends for us to partake each season.  For instance, flared jeans are making a strong comeback.  Whereas skinny jeans remain front and foremost.  A skinny, cigarette or straight leg jean can be worn for years rather than with a flared hem. Another trend hitting the airwaves are loose trouser pants, which in my fashion opinion are reminiscent of pajamas.  If you are going to buy pants,

Red Bathing Suits

Bill Blass Red is the color of passion, danger, anger and ultimately love.  It is a hue that stands out in a crowd, commands attention, and flatters the owner.  Think of fashionistas sporting a red dress in film or in the real world.  Heads turn, smiles happen, and the world stops for a moment.  Red is the color that truly makes an entrance.  Finding the correct red can be daunting.  If you have light, creamy skin with a pink cast, often a blue red is best.  If your skin is olive shade with a yellow undertone, then an orange red is your choice.  This handy chart by RITO designer knitwear can help identify your personal color of red.  Now the fun begins.  Once you have your color wheel done, you can then choose a delightful red hue from lipsticks, apparel and yes for a bathing suit.  The next mission is finding a red bathing suit, which often is difficult.  One would believe that a red bathing suit would be av

Jeans for Spring 2021

  Vi br ant Hues Pixabay - No Attribution Required The sun is out, birds are singing, and Spring is here.  I spent the day in the yard cutting back plants, grasses, and ferns in preparation for the new, glorious, and riotous growth.   The bounty is always stunning with an array of colors.  Later in the Spring, I will fill my pots with hues that add to the décor of the backyard and deck.  Yes, Jeans Please? What does this have to do with jeans in rainbow tones?  Well, the world is filled with beauty.  You must look for it and when you do sigh with delight.  Recently, my favorite celebrity diva, Suzanne Somers, was wearing and rocking skinny orange jeans with black pumps on one of her weekly Facebook videos.  Which, of course, were stunning on her.  Orange jeans are the perfect signal that springtime has officially arrived.   Of course, she is in desert and it is a bit warmer.  However, our day in the heat, will soon be here in the Pacific Northwest.  Right now, is the moment, to pull o
