Fashion: “Greenery and Ruffles”

Posted on February 21st, by Melanie

Pantone declared “greenery” the color of 2017, and I couldn’t be more happy about it. I love green. Remember my green master bedroom??? Yes, that’s how much I love the color! Especially a really good kelly green.

This fun top by Endless Rose from Halls has everything you could want in a spring top; the must have color of the season, pleats and subtle ruffles and of course the cold shoulder. At only $75, this top is a no brainer!

Scout Style: Spring Break

Posted on March 9th, by Melanie


We just got back from a week in Arizona. It was SO nice to get away and to just feel the sun on my face again. I was very excited to pull out some of my favorite pieces from last summer. One of them being this Free People lace tunic. I bought it for a “white party” last summer, and I ended up wearing it way more than I thought I would.

New Spring investments are these Illesteva Leonard II sunglasses that I have been eyeing since last summer. I found them for an incredible deal at the Standard Style end of season sale. It was pure luck, I couldn’t believe the price! I have a serious weakness for sunglasses; so I was excited to add these to my collection.

I am also loving these Vince Camuto Eiffel sandals (also on sale now at Nordstrom) they are so comfortable and will be great with skirts and dresses too!… Continue Reading

In the nude

Posted on February 3rd, by Melanie

When Spring rolls around, I begin to furiously shop for this season’s neutral shoe. I love a nude shoe; not only do they go with everything but they also tend to elongate your leg and make your feet look smaller!

For heels this season it is all about the open toe mule and “strappy” or lace up styles. We are also seeing the return of the wedge heel

Flat sandals are not too different from last year. You will see the very minimalistic “birkenstock style”, we will also be seeing the return of the wide straps, and “greek” inspired sandals with criss cross leather, or ankle ties.

The Espadrille is back in a big way for Spring! I remember wearing these back in the 90’s! They are super comfortable, and a nice sandal alternative

Here are some of my favorites in all categories for Spring…

Shorts: a love/hate relationship

Posted on April 14th, by Melanie

Shorts might be more painful to shop for than a swimsuit or a pair of jeans. I am just not a huge fan of my legs, and finding the perfect fit can be challenging! While I would much prefer dresses or skirts in the summer, they just aren’t practical chasing after the kids. Shorts are a must; so the search is on to find the perfect pair to update my summer wardrobe.

I am leaning towards colorful prints, drapy fabrics, linen and camo. I also just ordered the Rag & Bone Denim boyfriend short...should get them today, I will report back with the fit! What styles are you loving this season?

Here are a few of my faves…

Spring Fling

Posted on February 7th, by Melanie

Zara just launched their Spring/Summer line…I am loving the simplicity of it all. Especially these looks…so feminine, sophisticated and pretty…





Sometimes we don’t need all the color, pattern and embellishment to create a beautiful look.

Happy Friday my friends! Enjoy your weekend!… Continue Reading
