Outfits For Your Father’s Day Outing

Outfits For Your Father’s Day Outing

Brad & Nicki Wedding-110Before I tell you all about Outfits For Your Father’s Day Outing, I need to gush a bit about my Dad. The relationship my Dad and I have is not the typical situation as it started in the most unusual way. Here is the short version.

I was born in the backseat of the family car on the way to the hospital. Maybe one day I will include all the details in a post, but for now, you just need the facts. This means the first person to ever touch and hold me was my Dad. This is a bit unusual as most mothers-to-be have a doctor, nurses and a sterile room to give birth. Well, not these two… no wonder I am the youngest. 🙂

From there it has always been the two peas in a pod. My Dad is always first phone call for big life news or crises to get advice on how to handle it. He is my best friend and my biggest fan. I even have picked up his bad habits such as needing someone to go grocery shopping with! Everything is better with a friend. 🙂 On Father’s Day, it will be all about this guy and show him some much-needed love. If you are still in need of a Father’s day plan and outfit, check out our three fabulous outfits for your Father’s Day Outing. You have plenty of time to do any of these!

Style Tips – How to wear a Jean Jacket

I love Spring in Missouri, but there is one small issue. You can go from 80 degrees to mid-50s in a matter of hours. How is a girl suppose to pick out an outfit with such fluctuation?! I am known for walking out the door and turning right back around to change when the crisp air grazes my face. Then I have twice the laundry as now two outfits are covered in cat hair. UGH! Don’t worry I have my solution after much pinning and people watching.

Black Attire & Jean Jackets

distancerailThe older I get, the more my wardrobe looks like Johnny Cash. Black on black is so easy to look fabulous in and get ready in a jiffy. I always like to pair mine with a statement piece. In my world, this typically means a bold necklace or shoes. Recently, my new favorite trend is to break up the black with a jean jacket. With the crazy weather, it is a wise decision. 🙂

For today’s look, I took my favorite oversized v-neck shirt with black skinny jean. I dressed it up with a lovely long pink necklace which helps make the shirt a bit more defined. To finish the look, a pair of big wedges to make me look taller than 5′ 3″.

Summer Swimsuits

4 days until vacation. Let me repeat, 4 days until vacation!

I am beyond excited to visit my home away from home, Clearwater Beach, Florida. For those of you who have not heard of Clearwater, let me catch you up to speed. It is about 45 minutes away from Tampa and a little piece of heaven. It is one of a few barrier island in The Gulf of Mexico, so there is no need for a car once you are there. You can easily walk from one side to the other, and I often do.

In addition to the natural beauty, it has great food and activities. Follow me next week as I share our adventure.

A great adventure needs the right attire! As any great woman, I took this upcoming vacation to grab a few new hats, swimsuits and towels. The greatest part is you can buy them too! Click on any the links below and start your perfect summer attire. Read more
