My 5 Summer Must Haves

Here we are. Right in the middle of the sweltering dog days of summer.  My car thermostat read 95°F this afternoon, which made me wistful for low humidity and my wavy hair’s favorite temperature –  72. Summer’s heat and humidity can make staying lean and feeling fresh difficult. If you’re like me, the heat takes […]

Birkenstocks ~ An Orgasm For Your Feet

Since buying my first pair of Birkenstock sandals a month ago, my feet have been in ecstasy. I’d like to tell you that I bought them for the unbelievable comfort or the idyllic arch support. But that wouldn’t be the truth. I bought them because it seems that these good for your feet shoes are […]

My Oscar Speech

“Me? I won? Did they really call my name?” I stumble out of my seat, kiss my adoring husband, and after what seems like an eternity, I finally make it to the stage steps. “Don’t fall,” I tell myself repeatedly. Chances are if I did, I wouldn’t look as graceful as Jennifer Lawrence. And truth […]

Best & Worst Dressed at the Golden Globes

With award season upon us, I was excited to watch the Golden Globes last night. It’s always a fun night celebrating the best of the best in television, movies, and fashion. And while the television and movie awards were as interesting as ever, it was a disappointing night in fashion. Here are the worst and […]

Saturday Style ~ Game Day Chic

I am a Gator by marriage. My husband went to the University of Florida, which means that Saturdays in the fall are spent sipping cocktails and cheering with friends. I enjoy the Game Day vibe, but one thing I don’t like is wearing my orange and blue pride emblazoned with such things as, “Gator Girl,” “Chomp […]

With four friends, we’ll sail the clear blue water around St. Martin, Anguilla, St. Bart’s, and Saba. Living on a sailboat for over a week is […]

The Saks Fifth Avenue Style File ~ March 2013

Our monthly series about what’s chic at Saks Fifth Avenue continues with some fun ideas for looking stylish. I’ve made more than one trip to the Tampa Saks store this month. (Shhh, don’t tell my husband!) But when you see what the stylish Lanie Smith Wordes puts together in the Contemporary Department, you’ll see why. […]

$323.24 ~ What It Costs to Look Oscar Ready

With all the Oscar hoopla this week over who wore what and how much it cost, I was inspired to share my recent fancy, dress up experience with you and how I pulled it off for $323.24. My husband is a member of a social organization in Tampa called Ye Mystic Krewe of Gasparilla (YMKG). […]

The Saks Fifth Avenue Style File ~ What’s Hot for Spring

I adore spring. Maybe it’s because I grew up in the Midwest where spring meant longer days and hopefully the last of the cold weather. Maybe it’s because it feels like everything old is new again. Maybe it’s because these days, the Easter bunny delivers a little chocolate and, if I’m lucky, jewelry. But really, […]

Seeking Style & Snow ~ Part Deux ~ Lake Placid

So…picking up where we left off, David and I had just spent three amazing days in NYC, celebrating the Christmas holiday and my birthday. On the 27th, we woke up way too early (considering I celebrated my birthday the night before), and hit the road. You’ll probably remember from the last post that the whole […]
