Simple , Quick , Effective, and Affordable Way to Keep Your Hunters Glossy ! 

  I absolutely adore my Hunter Black Glossy boots but I hate that powdery white film ‘bloom’ that seems to appear inevitably. I’m happy to report that I do believe I found a way to prevent that unsightly problem ! 

You only need 4 things :

Warm water 

Paper towel 

Olive oil 

White cloth

1. Apply warm water and dry completely with a paper towel . 

2. Apply 1 teaspoon of olive oil to a white cloth and rub into each boot. 

3. That’s it ! Voila ! Glossy again !!

I wore my black boots so much last winter and spring . Here are a couple of outfits I put together back then:

I actually was going to wear them today but realized I better take out my olive oil first !  

 And I think I might be getting a little tired of just the black all the time :  

 So what color should I get next ?  

 What are your favorite colors / styles of Hunters ?? 

Hope you found this useful,  as we head into the crazy weather seasons ( although in New England all the seasons are crazy weather seasons)!

Bye for now !!

Thanks so much for stopping by !

Another Day, Another Dress!  Or… Why My Wardrobe is Seasonless…

So, yes, I’ve always loved dresses and they do make up about 90% of my wardrobe but one awesome thing about them is that if you use a little creativity and change around your accessories, you really can wear them all year long ! I had a little blue cocktail dress that I never got a chance to wear this summer but look how I styled it this week when temperatures were in the 40’s !!  

And this striped dress could be worn alone or made into a fall , spring , or even winter outfit with sweaters, scarves, and maybe the addition of a tall boot.  

I found a beautiful bright plaid scarf recently at Target. I loved it because it had pink , purple , yellow , and orange shades and was so incredibly soft. When I went to hang it on my scarf rack in my closet I noticed a dress I hadn’t worn in over a year was the exact same shade of the pink in the scarf and I realized the scarf would allow me to wear the dress and not freeze ( I do not like to be cold. At all. ) I was super warm all day even in the morning when we had an unexpected 26 degree day in October !!!  

I added a faux fur vest , leggings, and booties to a very lightweight dress and was totally warm and comfortable !!  

I absolutely love maxi dresses and I don’t put them away when the summer is over ! I just add a jacket , booties , and a warm stylish hat 😉 !  

This last dress is actually one of my favorites because it has a strong black and white design but it is different from the typical dots and stripes seen so often. I just added a sequin vest to jazz it up a bit because it was kind of warm for October that day , but I will add warmer accessories on colder days , of course !  

Hope you had fun seeing some of the outfits I put together this past week ! As always , hope it inspires you to have fun with your wardrobe! Wear what makes you happy ! 

Thanks, friends!

Fun Fall Fashion / Mixing and Matching with Style/  featuring ms.headoftheclass and journeyfive from IG 

Hi Fashionista and Dapper Gentleman Friends ! 

I just wanted to share some recent outfits I put together that I really enjoyed wearing. This first outfits show how I styled the coolest shoes ever which were made by @ms.headoftheclass from Instagram ! They are available at a very reasonable price and she is also having a giveaway !!! Yay !!! 

   Here is my one of my favorite skirts. Of course , I love all patterns but sometimes I’m just in the mood for polka dots so I actually wear this skirt a lot ! This week I am hosting a style challenge ( me and the rad @loopyscorpio ) on IG and the theme was ‘Edgy of a Broken Heart’ so I added the heart jewelry , j’adore  sweater , and moto vest !  
   This dress is from the Instagram shop @journeyfive and I love everything about it. The fabric is so soft and slightly sheer. It’s hard to see but I wore it with leggings that have a subtle plaid design. I just found them at Target over the weekend ( in the lingerie department 😉 and they are super comfortable ! I was tempted to wear my red cowboy boots with this outfit but I thought it would be too costumey so I went with the brown Paris Hilton pair I found at !  

  This next outfit is just a simple dress but I love how you can switch it up by putting different shirts under or over and I even sometimes wear colored tights with it . I think this time , keeping it all black and white , worked out well for a Sunday   Morning family gathering I attended.  
It was a really warm day on Monday ( Colunbus Day ) so I actually wore a summery dress with lots of fall colors and then paired it with tights , booties , and a little light jacket for a quick stop at the apple orchard. 

  Thanks so much for checking out my blog . Hope it inspired you to have fun with your wardrobe and do your own mixing and matching 😉
