New layout for the blog!

I updated the layout for the blog this week. I hope you like it. I’ve been meaning to do this all year and finally got around to it. Still trying to figure out a few things here and there, but one thing I’m excited about is my new ‘Shop my Instagram’ tab in the drop down menu on my ‘Shop’ tab. I don’t have a lot of looks in there yet, but I’ll be adding more as I go.

To use the ‘Shop my Instagram’ tab, click on a photo in there and all of the items from that look will appear underneath the photo. Voila! I update items as they sell out, so you can find similar items to create that look.

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend as we transition from fall into winter. {Yikes!} I’m not looking forward to the cold weather, myself. But, we put up our Christmas tree today, so onward we go toward the next season, ready or not!

In the meantime, I’m enjoying the last of the fall colors… Here are some of my recent photos so you can enjoy them with me.

Palm leaf tank top

I’ve been waiting for this palm leaf tank top to arrive from Yoins for a couple of weeks now, and finally, when I got busy doing extras work and stand-in work for a couple of days with no time to check the mail, that’s when it arrived. I love this palm leaf print trend that’s been so in this year! The shades of green, pink, and ivory are such a nice color combo. My only problem with this tank top was that the straps were way too long. I had to pin them up a bit so it would hang just right on my petite frame. Later on, when I have time, I’ll sew the straps I pinned into place so I don’t have to keep pinning it every time I wear it.

I paired this with my white eyelet lace shorts, white flower sandals, my ‘Wish you were here’ straw hat’, rose gold reflective sunglasses, rose gold purse plus my palm tree necklace and earrings for a nice summer look. Too bad summer is almost over. I’ll have to layer the top with jeans and a jacket as summer turns into fall so I can still wear it.

Which summer trend did you like best this year?
