Fashion Friday – Tassels, Shorts & More Edition

fashion fri

Ahhh, summer days are coming and since I’m in the heart of hot Texas today…guess who has no NO AIR-CONDITIONING? Yes, ME! What better way to get inspiration than to sweat my buns off cleaning up the bachelor pad so I can actually sit somewhere here at the ranch house. Our son lives here full-time and works a lot of hours (he ain’t cleaning much), our visits ensure a very germ-a-phobe mom will clean as if IT’S NEVER BEEN CLEANED before.

THIS PLACE IS SPARKLING even if it’s hot!

But, you don’t care about my cleaning habits or how hot it is… do you? You want to see what I’m posting for Fashion Friday, right? Me too. Let’s get to shopping.

I’m so excited because the season change is bringing with it some of the cutest summer styles. Shorts are getting fancy, tassels are hanging from ears, necks and clothing and I can’t get enough! Funny thing, I packed for Texas with a chill in the air in Indy. So, I have a pile of clothes that I WILL NOT BE WEARING here. It is so HOT! Lucky for me, my job while I’m here is shopping! 🙂

Look at this Seersucker Bow short by Lauren James $72

Aren’t these adorable? I love the bow, I adore the seersucker and for goodness sake….they are decent!

RXB Embroidered top at TJ Maxx $19.99


Remember back in the day when tassels and embroidered clothes were hippie clothes? Yea, back up girl. It is all coming back! You could pair this with jeans or shorts and be the cutest chick there, wherever your there is.

Need a new cover up? Well, look no further.

I might be the biggest fan of the designer Adrianna Papell, ever. Her clothes are so perfect for MY taste. I love everything she makes and this dress is perfect for summer.

Your feet need to look their best too. Don’t you think? I love a leather sandal especially if it has a little bit of a heel. Like these — >

Softspots Rhode Luggage shoe fo $79.99 at Zappos

leather sandal

Don’t complain that they are a sandal or that sandals shouldn’t be $79.99 either. The name alone tells you they are comfortable, Softspots?! These can be worn with shorts, jeans, capris and even dresses. ALL SUMMER LONG!

Here’s a fancy little dress to wear for just about anything. I love the denim color and the fact that it’s sleeveless. For those of you who don’t show the guns or the flab, whichever your vice is….throw on a little jean jacket or summer sweater. You’ll look fab!

Jag Jeans Abra Dress for $62.99 at

And, I’ll end with this swimsuit, because we might as well face it….it’s that time again! Like pulling a band-aid off super quick – here’s a look at something those of us with old lady bodies can actually wear!

Magic Suit Tankini top for $114 at Soma

tankini top

Look, what more do you need? It says it right there in the name, MAGIC! So, I’m counting on this pretty tankini to do magic when you wear it. Just make sure to grab some bottoms, ok?

And, because I know how hard it is to find a nice decent swimsuit that matches most body types. I’ve found a site that offers some really adorable choices. SWIMSUITS FOR ALL – go check them out.

Happy Friday!
