Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve

I wore this thrifted outfit on the 23rd of August but didn’t post because I wanted to feature “The Gift of Light” pictures which still amazes me!

FA_MainImage

Delaware Today magazine is set to host the first Delaware Today Fashion Awards on Wednesday, September 25, at Deerfield, to honor the talented individuals who have made outstanding contributions to Delaware’s fashion industry.

The event, which runs from 6-9:00 p.m., will recognize the Fashion Awards nominees featured in the September issue of Delaware Today magazine. The nominees were selected by the public through an online voting process; however an esteemed panel of fashion experts will choose the winners. With categories ranging from makeup artist to photographer, and boutique to best-dressed Delawarean, the Delaware Today Fashion Awards will identify a wide range of fashion professionals, from promising new talents to established forerunners who have influenced fashion in the community.

The winners from each of the 11 categories will be revealed live at the event. As mentioned, Delaware Today has partnered proudly with a variety of fashion experts to serve as judges. They include: Joan Bernard, owner of Barbizon Modeling & Talent Agencies in Wilmington and Philadelphia; Kelly Cobb, designer and assistant professor of Fashion and Apparel Studies at the University of Delaware; Colleen Moretz, fashion designer and owner of Colleen Couture; and Dallas Shaw, fashion illustrator and style expert. Ms. Shaw also graces the cover of the September issue of Delaware Today.

Guests will enjoy cocktails and music, and have the opportunity to view the industry’s hottest products and trends. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

The Delaware Today Fashion Awards are sponsored by Christiana Mall, Wilmington Country Store, Designer Consigner, Hillary J. White Salon, Kate’s Lens Photography, Kristina Ruggerio Cosmetics, Salon by Dominic, Claire’s Fashions, Gloss Salon—and many more. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Stand By Me, a statewide financial empowerment program that gives every Delawarean the opportunity to meet with their own financial coach. The organization is a coalition of community partners, led by the State of Delaware and United Way of Delaware.

Are you a WALDO?

Do you have a White After Labor Day Outfit?

*

Growing up I used to hear people say that you should never ever wear white after Labor Day. Growing up we didn’t have many clothes so I probably didn’t have enough white outfits to wear the entire summer let alone carry over past Labor Day.

*

Now the older I get the quicker the seasons seem to change and the larger my wardrobe grows. I don’t know about you, but I never get a chance to wear all of my summer outfits in the summer months. Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, but September 21st is the actual date so I will continue to wear white until then and maybe perhaps even into Fall.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday

I trust you all had a nice weekend and are now having a productive and stress-free day.  If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know we have a large Magnolia tree in the side yard that only produces one or two blossoms each year – this is what it looked like last year ( post )

August 2013 054

This Magnolia tree was planted over 11 years ago, yet it has only produced 1 or 2 blooms but this year we got 4 – can you find them?  The blossoms are so very fragrant but the leaves are a mess.

If it produced more blossoms the air would be filled with a beautiful southern scent.

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

For this post I asked a co-worker to take the pictures in order to give my sons a break.  Sometimes they complain even though I provide them with food, shelter, water and lots of love! 

As you know I work in West Chester, PA, and similar to the Marlton office it is surrounded by greenery which makes for a better background than my backyard.

This outfit was simple black and white, a classic combination.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

In my current job I no longer have much of an opportunity to travel and my daily commute from Middletown, DE to West Chester, PA can be quite boring.  Yesterday I had the chance to make a site visit to Marlton, NJ, or as I like to call it, “Exit 4 on the Jersey Turnpike”.  Not to say that driving straight away on the turnpike wasn’t boring because it was, what made it all worthwhile was the location itself.

The building is surrounded with a man made pond that has ducks, a fountain and beautiful flora.  The Atrium is also serene and peaceful with tall palm trees, plants and flowers.  I think coming into this building on a daily would put anyone in the right frame of mind no matter what the traffic was like in getting there.  Here are just a few pictures of the outside, I will post the interior shots tomorrow.

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

There definitely should be an extra day between Saturday and Sunday because trying to squeeze in chores and relaxation into two can be exhausting!  I trust you all had an enjoyable weekend and hopefully are half way through a stress free Monday.

Today’s outfit is a simple two piece skirt and sleeveless tank that I must have bought about 10 years ago and thanks to the elastic waistband, I will probably have it another 10 years!
