Nothing New – Day Ten

spring skirt personal style 40+

Wearing: Anthropologie top, skirt and belt / Zara nude wedges / Olivia Harris handbag / Lilly earrings / Loft bracelet.

This bright spring outfit is bursting with color. The orange color of the skirt is as bold as it looks, so no slinking in the back door unnoticed. Fuller skirts are what I want to live in during the warmer months. They offer a delicious freedom of movement and there’s that lovely swish of fabric during the slightest breeze.

What do you reach for again and again in spring/summer?

Playing catch up with my Nothing New project. Here are my outfits from the past few days. We had a long weekend off from school and that always means busy, busy, busy. We also went to my sister’s house this weekend for a family get-together with was really wonderful. We sat around for hours enjoying the weather, talking and eating good food.

Hope you’ve had a good weekend too and are settling into your week. The weather is getting nicer and nicer! So ready for that.

Nothing New – Day 4



I don’t know, what do you think of this cowgirl-meets-Asian-watercolor print? I completely forgot to accessorize in my haste to take pictures, but I’m a chronic under-accessorizer anyway. Does anyone else have this problem?

Because it’s Friday, I’m going to throw a 5 Random Things into today’s post as well.

  1. I can’t even tell you how excited I am about this concept. Tween bras that aren’t sexy, push-up or sparkly. And the creator is 18 years old. Bravo!!!
  2. My favorite is the infinity scarf with the secret pocket. Check out 7 Ways To Wear Your Valuables While Traveling.
  3. We all run into ruts when it comes to creativity. Here are 10 Ways to Boost Creativity by Doing Less
  4. The best website for fashion & beauty I’ve come across lately is Rank & Style. YOU. MUST. GO. SEE. IT. It has reviews and Top 10 lists for everything.
  5. Lindsey over at Thrift and Shout puts together amazing outfits that can cost as little as $17. She always looks cool and proves that you don’t need to spend a lot of cash to have style.

Have a great one!


Nothing New – Day 3

NothingNew-3a NothingNew-3b

This is one of those outfits that I’m really comfortable in. The jacket has seen more airports than any other item of clothing I have. It’s my go-to travel layer because it elevates my casual pieces, keeps me warm and looks neat and tidy even after a long day. I’m also a huge fan of cross-body bags because I like to have both hands free when I’m running around. The adjustable straps clip-off on this one and becomes a clutch. Brilliant! It also travels with me often. I love pieces that do double-duty.

Wearing: Trina Turk military jacket / Anthropologie Sandstone top / Levi’s Curve ID jeans / Aquatalia by Marvin K ankle boots / Stella & Dot necklace / World Market earrings / Halogen crossbody bag (on sale, more colors)

Enjoy the day!

Nothing New – Day 2


Today was a busy one and I knew it would be. I did take time to call my parents and email some close friends, but forgot to drink water until 3:30. I was so thirsty by that time, I did that gasping chug, chug, chug until I couldn’t hold any more. It was also windy and I think the wind just pulled the water right out of every pore. I got Jackson a new dog bed for his crate and he has been eyeballing it with a certain longing and excitement. Wait until he sees the new bones.

Wearing: Anthropologie cardigan, t-shirt & necklace / Lucky Brand jeans / Franco Sarto flats

Have a great day!
