Yay! It is Friday….could not have arrived at a better time! This has been a fun week focusing on how to Make Every Day an Occasion. I know for many of us still working, the weekend is the time we want to dial it down!

I still think we can take it down a bit but look great!  It takes just as much time to look nice as it does to look …well, let’s just say relaxed!

In the summer, I especially love little airy toppers and kimonos.  I can put on a pair of pants or jeans or crops, a tank top and place one of these jackets on top and it looks like I really took a lot of time to get ready!  Nope, just as much time as I would’ve spent with jeans and a top.

It is easy-sheemsy…the toughest part of this whole look is my makeup and sometimes my hair.  I will say, my shorter hair, takes much less fuss than it did.  I do like that about it. You guys have been so incredible supporting me with this change this week.  I cannot tell you how much I appreciated all of the kind words.

Well, you know me, I have to toss on a necklace for any outfit (no matter how casual) to be complete.  This jacket loves these hand-blown beads by local jewelry artist, Susan Butler.  I first introduced you to Susan HERE.  She is super talented and her work can be found online at Con Brio Beads or in Texas boutiques and museum shops.  Her contribution makes this outfit a special occasion look for every day.

I truly hope this week has given you some inspiration to go out and enjoy your every day life looking fabulous!  It doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot, or fuss a lot, or feel uncomfortable.  But, it just might bring some added joy into your life.  I know it does to mine.  Since my reinvented style, I am uncomfortable in frumpy, ill-fitting jeans or oversized tee shirts and flip flops!

Enjoy some of the great sales out there, ladies, in the slide show below and…..
