The Best of 2017

Where did this year go? It can certainly take it's stress and disappointments with it. We've had enough of that. I'm looking forward to better things next year.

Instead of rounding up the top 10 or 12 or so most viewed posts, I decided to see what was the most viewed post of each month. It's only fair to the posts from the last couple of months that haven't been up as long, lol. 

So without any further delay, I bring you the best of 2017.

Gifts for the Southern girl - Small Business Saturday

Here are some picks for the Southern girl or the southern at heart. You know southern ladies love their monograms and bling. ( I may be the exception, I don't have a lot of monogrammed stuff.) But I do love bling! 

It's also small business Saturday, so let's not overlook small business this shopping and giving season and show them some support. Here are my picks for awesome gifts from Harper and Jewels.

Plaid and leggings

Sweater- Nordstrom  option  option
scarf- Nordstrom     option  option
leggings- old  option  option   option 
boots- Naturalizer  option   option 
bracelets- made by me  option
earrings- Cato  option   option   option
Excuse the weird sun flares in the photos. I didn't realize they were there until I went to edit the photos and I simply don't have time to do much photoshop work on them. I really liked this outfit and wanted to share it so you get the sunflare photos along with it. We have about one day per week right now that's cool enough for something like this so of course I jump at the chance to wear it.
Hope you are having a wonderful Christmas season so far. We have almost finished our gift shopping and are ready to wrap it up (literally and figuratively). No pun intended.

Plaid and polka dots

Top- JCrew Factory  option
vest- Old Navy   option  option
jeans- Loft
boots- Clarke's  option   option
bracelet- Alex and Ani  option
earrings-JCPenney  option  option  option
I wore this a few weeks ago, but with the red plaid, it could easily be a holiday outfit. There are a ton of ways to style a vest, even a plaid one, so I'm looking forward to playing around with the vest again.  Vests are also a great option if you have milder winters like we do. And they make great gifts!

Pumpkin spice and everything nice- Saturday Shopping

Fall is coming (at least on the calendar - in my climate one would not know otherwise) and along with it all of it's rich glorious colors. For the next few weeks, we will be exploring those colors.  One of my favorite fall colors is what Pantone is calling Potter's Clay this year. Call it rust, pumpkin spice, or orange. Here's a collection of some great pieces in that color, all under $100, except for the dress, and most under $50.
