Spirit Lake–One of the Fashion Capitols of the World

Spirit Lake Tee 4
The moment we head left on Main Street to pass through Spirit Lake and head down toward the lake, we slow down and take inventory. This summer sadly the regular ice cream parlor we’d frequent often was vacant. It was quite sad for all of us–especially the kids and their grammy. On the upside however, a new tee shirt store came to town, Thunder Ridge Productions. I’ll admit; it was hard to pick my tee, but this fashion capitol one spoke out to me. The close behind was the tee that said, “This drinking town has a motorcycle problem.” Hahaha, love that one. One Sunday after church, we stopped on Main Street, Spirit Lake to take a couple of pics–with a cameo of Alex, my father-in-law, plus some local riders!

Some Outfit Details:

Sunnies–I picked these up at the start of the summer from Zara.
Graphic Tee–Thunder Ridge Productions. When you stop by say hi to Bob. He’s great!
Leather Jacket–Swap and Shop HK
Striped pencil skirt–TJ Maxx
Cowboy Boots–I picked up this Old West pair from Zappos so I could bring a pair back with me to Hong Kong. This way my mom’s will stay out at the cabin, and I’ll have these for HK. It’s a drag carrying them back and forth.
Handbag–4th of July Spirit Lake Picnic. There’s a cute little lady that I beeline to each summer after the Main Street parade. She always has the best treasures!

Going for RAD in 2015!

Rad2Happy New Year!

It’s true! I’m going for “RAD” in 2015! Ha ha, I’m such an 80s girl; I still say “rad” all the time. It’s like a word that has stayed perpetually as my perfect adjective. When I saw this tee hanging in the back of the Bershka shop in Kuta, Bali of all places, I made a beeline. I knew it would be the perfect compliment to my “rad” silver sequin shorts to bring in the new year. These shorts make their rounds: last year when we were with Mary for New Year’s, she wore them. They made an appearance on my 40th and also for Beijing’s techno concert. They’re basically the perfect festive piece which is why I strongly believe every woman just needs a little bit of sparkle. (Scroll through–I’ve created some options for you down below.)

Cheetah Love

It’s a known fact: I am filled with Cheetah Love! It’s a serious love that expands to scarves, shoes, swimsuits, pillows, coffee mugs, what have you. (In fact, as I write, I am draped in a cozy cheetah throw!) It isn’t limited to the traditional color scheme; it ventures into red and black and turquoise. The love is mutual as Cheetah loves me back. It offers me confidence with an attitudinal shift in my stature.

Here’s a little Cheetah Love for the day. Enjoy! And make sure to link below if you are so interested in any of these lovely finds.
