SUNO Prints

I tend to be very shy about wearing loud prints.  These outfits by SUNO inspire me to step outside my comfort zone and mix prints together.

Fashion in between seasons

I am finding it hard lately to pick out an outfit.  This weird time between summer and fall where it really isn't either, makes for tough mornings.  I was messing around on Polyvore today and came up with this.  I think it's a great outfit that works for this time of year.

Nom nom nom.....

To know me is to know that I LOVE potatoes - mashed, au gratin, twice baked, fries, chips, ANY potato. I came across this recipe and I will definitely be trying it this weekend. An Edible Mosaic.....be still my heart.

Passion for Fashion

I have a passion for fashion!  I found a skirt at Forever 21 that I am just loving.  This is how I paired it for today's outfit.

It's September.....that means fall is just around the corner.  Personally it is my most favorite time of year.  This is when I wish I lived in New England.  The turning of the leaves, sunny crisp days, boots, hot cider, and pumpkins.  Given I live 3,000 miles away, across the country, I can only dream. 

Below are some shots I found on Pinterest that conjur up the feeling of the autumn I dream about.....
