Good Morning, ladies! I hope you all had a fun weekend! It was super hot again in Dallas (not 100, but close), so it made outside activities not much fun. We went to our granddaughter’s soccer game on Saturday in the middle of the day, and it was so hot that I bailed out of my grandson’s football game directly after. The heat in September drains me. We went to my sister-in-law’s mom’s 80th birthday party on Saturday night. It was so cute, and I loved feeling like the youngest person in the room!


Today, I wanted to show you one of my favorite outfits for Fall (these photos were shot in LA a few weeks ago), featuring this fabulous sequin lightweight sweater. You can wear sequins any time, day or night, and an understated sequin sweater or top gives an average piece a little oomph! I’m not saying to go entire ham like this (during the day), but understated is always a good policy. I paired the sweater with these brown denim pants. It’s such a nice change from blue and my new sandals, which were a splurge, but the color got me! I have worn all three of these pieces multiple times already ( as shown) and mixed them with other things in my closet.

While shopping in LA, I also bought this sequin top to wear with higher-rise jeans. I have a reasonably long waist and worn with high-waisted jeans; my stomach is completely covered. I love all the browns and spicey colors in the Fall and always gravitate toward them. One color trend I don’t think I can get behind for this Fall is pastels. Also, I attended a Fall fashion show at Neiman Marcus last week and was very surprised at how many designers used spring colors. It just doesn’t work for me this time of year. What about you?

I have a relatively calm week and am so happy about it.

I am on a Trivia team tonight and am a little nervous. Also, I used to be so good at trivia, especially the movie and celebrity category (it says a lot about me :))). But I am not so good at it anymore. Also, I have no idea who anyone is, and I haven’t seen a movie in a long time. I hope I stay on the team mid-game! It will be fun no matter what!

Get some sequins and shine a little! Have a great day, and be safe and well! xx
