Muir in the Mist

It was sunny. I headed out, to spend some secluded time with my book and the sand.

I was anxious to smell the ocean, the salt and breeze, feel the sand on my skin. I brought my bikini, just in case.

Muir Beach, CA was my destination.

As I drove down the twisting HWY 1 to the coast, fog began blocking out the sun and my view. The air was turning from warm to chilly, and by the time I parked in the ‘lot full’ parking lot, I was thankful I had brought my short jean jacket.

I had chosen my clothing carefully. I wore a short teal lace beach dress, cute wedge sandals, and my bikini in which I scandalously changed into, in my car. (no one saw me!) It was not quite what I’d prefer to wear on a cold day at the beach.

Barefoot walk to the beach in the cold sand, carrying my favorite “use me over and over again” Kenneth Cole Reaction bag filled with towel, sarong, book, camera, water,… I was set.

Interesting people greeted me as I passed by. Fire smoke and bundled babies and doggies having a blast, it was perfect!

My happy spot selected, I sat to enjoy the sights, smells and strangers around me.  Groups of people camped around smoking fires, keeping warm in the sand. Activity and conversation surrounded me.  It was lovely, alone on the beach with my book and my thoughts.

When the wind turned the air from bearable to bone-chilling, I packed up with thoughts of wearing more appropriate beach clothing. On the path, I passed a camera crew going to take cool misty shots and a college group carrying heavy logs, with ‘great flames’ written on their faces.

It was tempting to stay and enjoy the night fun on Muir Beach, but my cold feet took me to my car and home. Next time…


Polka-Dot Power

 

 

 

They keep coming back!

 

I like polka-dots! They have stood the test of time and are back on the racks this Fall!

 

As a young girl, I remember a particular dress I chose for Easter. White ruffled skirt with black polka-dots and a black cap-sleeve button up top. I loved it! Sadly, I have not donned the dots in years.

 

The Dots out there now however, have certainly caught my eye!

The power of the Dot is contagious…

So why not brighten up your wardrobe with a few Dots this Fall?!! I certainly will!

 

 


Gorgeous Jackets for Fall

There is one thing I love about gearing up for Fall. Jackets!

 

Living in California, I don’t need to shop for heavy jackets till Winter months. Nights are getting cooler and a light layer is nice…

 

While browsing the Armani Exchange , I found a few styles I simply love! These classy Jackets have an eye-catching appeal that you wouldn’t want to miss.

 

Peplum Jacket

 

This new jacket has a touch of  feminine flare while staying true to the clean lines.

 

 

 

 

Suede Trim Leather Jacket

 

This jacket just says “Sexy” all over it! The suede trim and modern neckline give this leather jacket an enticement all its own.

 

 

 

 

Croc Embossed Faux Leather Jacket

 

My Pick ~ This jacket has the endless style of the moto, in a soft elegant look.

 

 

 

 

Each of these jackets have beautiful, original style that looks HOT in the dark and light!  Great with jeans or skirt, grab your jacket and GO…!

 


He wore WHAT!!?

On a Girl’s Night Out, I discovered that there were a lot of men who do not know how to dress. It’s time to get a little personal Fellas!

When dressing for a Friday night out, plan a little sex-appeal into your wardrobe.  That’s right!!

She’ll take in the whole package instantly, shirt to shoes. If you have great style, you’ll bag more than brownie points!

Most men I’ve seen go with the long sleeve button up. Don’t do that!  Try a different approach.

The V-Neck.

 

This is probably the sexiest style made for MAN. In every shade, the V-Neck takes casual to class!

The great thing I love about the V-Neck is, versatility.

Dress it up with a dark blazer on cooler nights or wear it alone. You can’t go wrong!

V-Neck sweaters are a nice alternative this Fall, but choose Cashmere to show off your muscle.

Date Tip~ Don’t shave it off! Keep a little scruff. We like it and want to touch it!

Why not draw her attention to you?!

Give yourself an upgrade the next time you go out. Put on the V-Neck.

 


Date Fashion

 

 

 

What to wear?!!!

When planning an outfit for a date, I give it some extra thought. I love to feel fabulous and sexy, so I choose my pieces carefully.

I chose a white ribbed tank and layered it with a fabulous Armani Exchange moto shirt.

Keeping my look simple, I wore black 4″ heel booties to add height and style.

Silver and burgundy stone earrings gave me the splash of color I needed.

The look I achieved was simple and sexy for my hot date!

He wore a slim-fit Tommy Hilfiger oxford and gray Geoffrey Beene slacks.

To dress up his look, he chose fashionable black Frattelli boots.

For a touch of class and sex-appeal, he rolled his sleeves the Italian way.

The Italian Way –

1. Unbutton the cuff.

2. Take the edge of the cuff and flip the whole cuff back.

3. Drag the cuff slowly up past your elbow until the bottom seam of the cuff is in your elbow pit.

4. Fold the extra 3-5 inches of  sleeve up, to secure the cuff above your elbow.

The cuff won’t come undone and the look is timeless Class.

On this date, both of us chose to keep our looks simple. By this, we emphasized our figures and drew attention to only one piece.


Choose Your Hide


 The Leather Jacket is a classy look for both men and women. How you wear yours, is your ticket to sophistication and … cool.

There are many styles that look great and with a little help, you can find the one that is right for you.

While searching, know your styles well.   Not everyone can pull off a leather utility jacket.

Keep in mind fit, as well as comfort. A Leather Jacket may allow for a little more room in the body and arms, but the fit should be right on the shoulders.

When I was a young girl, my Dad sported a grey Leather Bomber. While it fit his mid-section well, the shoulders were not quite right.

Tip: Get your Jacket tailored to help with any problem areas.

A quality Leather Jacket is an investment and with care, yours can last for years.

My Picks:

Diesel Laurence

Delusion Straight Leather

7 Diamonds Tokyo

 

 


Puff, the jacket for you?

Most women would agree that men are funny. At least, ‘a good sense of humor’ usually makes THE LIST when searching for our soul-mate.

With that said, men with a good sense of humor can still have style, right?! Of course!

However we like to be laughing with you, not at you funny man!

So here’s my take on the PUFFY.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

NOT a pick for the fellas.

We all know what the Michelin Man looks like, and REALLY!!!

No matter how Fit you are, the Puffy does not make any guy look great! Except in this one instance… if the guy wearing the Puffy is skin and bones.

So though the Puffy Jacket has no cool style, we do understand that sometimes in freezing conditions, the ridiculous wins.

And when you see her laughing, you’ll know why.

 

 


The Moto

The Motorcycle Jacket is a nostalgia piece that looks great on both women and men. It speaks loudly of times past and will forever say “HOT!”

                             My Top Pick ~

           MICHAEL Michael Kors Quilted-Shoulder Leather Jacket

It says it all! This jacket has style that grabs attention!
