Good Morning! Hope you all had a good weekend! I love this gorgeous floral Kimono from Anthropologie. It’s by a designer named Elizabeth Gillett, who makes the most beautiful scarves and Kimono type shawls. I love her philosophy about a scarf. She says, “a scarf is the ultimate accessory, an outfit -changer that brightens the face like a great shade of lipstick”. I have never thought of a scarf that way, but it makes me want to wear one all of the time now! Can you imagine what my outfit would look like without this flowey piece on top? It would be ho hum boring! I wanted to pair the Kimono with a tank and boyfriend jeans to make it feel feminine, and I think it did just that!  A piece like this is perfect for a little AC warmth too!

I absolutely love the necklace I am wearing from Elaine Turner. It’s from her “Southern Charm Bar“. 15% of the sales of these pieces goes to charity all year. You can custom build your own necklace from the charms she offers. I got the chain, the “believe” mantra bar, the angel wing, and amethyst briolette. It’s a sweet reminder of where to focus my thoughts during the day.

I have a fairly busy week. I was asked to put together a “Fall Fashion Finds” for a Nashville publication’s August issue. I am so excited to do it, and have been perusing the internet all weekend for Fall 2016 looks. I am so excited that velvet is back in a big way, and that BIG chokers are in! If you didn’t see my post HERE, on why I love a choker, check it out! I can’t wait to hit the stores today to start the gathering of items!

P.S. I know my photos on mobile devices are coming up wonky! Trying to fix the problem, but may take a little time, as I am waiting on help! Lord knows I need it!!!

Have a great Monday, and thank you for reading! xoxo
