Movie Night

Movie Night

Spent a wonderful evening catching up with friends and viewing a movie featured at the American Film Institute for the Latin American film festival.  There are great movies to be seen.  If you are in the DC area it's worth a look.   This outfit came together with the thoughts of comfort, warmth and versatility.  The first goal is to always look chic.  I also needed a jolt of java prior to the movie to ensure that I would not take a nap during the film.   I have decided that I will play to my strengths this fall and stick with colors I love and ones that move me.  This is easy as navy blue is my favorite color.  Add grey, cream, rust/burnish orange, burgundy, purple, black and brown and my fall palette is complete.  I hope to talk about how I put together my outfits and concepts for my wardrobe. Some of it is haphazard, but I try to stay focused.  Let's explore together!

Happy Monday!  Today is a wonderful day.  It started out a little slowly.  But the weather is fine and the living is good.  I had a great weekend catching up the my BFF and doing what girls like to do.... shop!  I saw a few cute things but did not do too much damage.  I stuck to my guns and bought only things on my wish list.  :-)   I am re-evaluating my closet and need to add only items that will enhance the items that I already have.  
Speaking of things that I already have.  I must confess, that I absolutely love a good tweed.  And this skirt is fabulous!  The fit is awesome.  The texture only enhances other colors that I add to this outfit.  And it plays well as a neutral if needed.  The fabric is light enough that I can wear this in 3 of the 4 seasons comfortably.  It is one of the items in my closet that makes me happy just to look at it.  And it gives me a little pick-me-up whenever I wear it.  Do you have any articles of clothing that give you a boost? 


Goals for the Fall

Goals for the Fall

Happy Labor Day!  I am spending part of the afternoon watching awesome tennis courtesy of the US Open!  I was hoping to see Roger Federer and Mardy Fish play.  But Fish just withdrew from the tournament stating medical reasons.  Mr. Fish experienced some heart problems (arrhythmias) requiring treatment early in the year, I believe.  The heat and humidity in NYC are uncomfortable for the spectators and worse for the players.  My guess is that his doctors advised him not to continue in the tournament.  What shame!  Mardy has been doing so well this season.  Good luck to you, Mardy!  I'll be looking forward to seeing you play in the fall.   
With the unofficial last day of summer upon us, I am now thinking about fall fashion more and more.  I am hoping to include more dresses and skirts into my daily wardrobe.  Do you have any suggestions on how to make some of these dresses effortless for work and play?  I'll share my thoughts in coming days.  Now back to the tennis, hot dogs and burgers!
