September! You are upon us! Oh, September and what to wear! Here in Indiana, we teeter between hot days, cool nights, lots of humidity and a chilly day thrown in here or there, so it’s like what to wear? We’re coming out of summer transitioning into Fall with your closet and your mind doing a head spin with your outfits of the day.


I’ve mentioned to you before here and here my love of Gibson Look! Their classy yet trendy pieces are so on point this Fall! I have got a couple of the best dresses to wear now and later as it gets cooler.


Oh, this little ruffle number DRESS!!! Besides the class black and white, the fit is so in check! When it’s a beautiful warm day just slip on some sweet little sandals!

As the day starts to turn chili for the night, put on your Moto jacket and some cute booties and if your legs are chilly of course you can add in the tights! I am on the hunt for some cute Fall tights! Darling DRESS!

Oh, the print of this little Boho number is divine! Again, it’s a nice weight to just pair with some sandals on a somewhat warm day. LOVE the drawstring waist!

Then transition with a Jean Jacket, boots and of course you can throw on a hat! I really think you’re going to love this one.

 I haven’t had a piece yet from Gibson Look that I didn’t absolutely love!

What a wonderful day my mom and I enjoyed in the local botanical gardens! These gardens are a hidden gem just a few minutes from my home and such a delight to walk through. Last week we were blessed with the most beautiful week of weather, finally the heat and humidity had subsided, and it was just high 70s low 80s and sunny kind of days!


We’re thinking about getting a membership because then you can take your dog, lol! I don’t know why I’ve never thought of that before, such a great place to walk!

 Look at this gazebo with a Bird of Paradise plant in the middle

Of course, one of our favorite areas was the annual gardens! As you know I’ve been here to buy green thumb from my mama, see some of my flower posts here and here. It did not disappoint only in the fact that I wish it had been bigger, lol!


I absolutely love this shade of zinnias and I must find them, lol!

And another favorite were these giant wind chimes! I wish you could have heard the melody, so beautiful and they are so huge up in that tree.

"What do we do now??" LOL

Beautiful Butterflies everywhere!! 

Of course, mom and I had the perfect attire for a garden walk. Beautiful

 I wore my beautiful Tie front Midi Dress from Gibson Look. 

I really love the fit of it.

Such a GREAT DRESS // Necklace Set HERE

Look at mom’s pretty Pink KIMONO and crisp white.

AND her KIMONO is on Major SALE!! ($26!)


Took my tripod to get the cutest shots of us together.


Beautiful days like this are good for the soul and grateful and appreciative to be able to do these days with my mama!

How can next weekend be Labor Day weekend already? I sure do love summer but I’d be lying if I said this pumpkin lovin girl wasn’t ready for crisp, fabulous FALL. Today, on the docket, is a fun birthday celebration for the business of my favorite charcuterie queen! Can’t wait. And Friday Favorites FUN IS HERE!!!

1. Sweater Pumpkin

Speaking of sweaters, the stores are brimming with great pumpkin decorations and the Sweater Pumpkin picks are back at Michael's! LOVE the cable knit!

Here’s a picture of how I utilize mine on the tiered trays, I just broke the stem off and had me a sweater pumpkin! They come in orange and white!

See my 3 Fall Tiered Trays HERE

2. Sweaters so Sweet

Lots of great sweaters to be had at Nordstrom! What I love about all of these is that they are super high-quality and will last you for years, some classics, some trends but all cute!

3. This Sweater…That Color
And here’s the beauty! You guys went crazy on my TikTok and on my Instagram stories for this orange Lace Sleeve Sweater from Amazon! It is so soft, true to size and it comes in tons of colors! I paired it with a darker Jean which I really love and of course a little leopard!

4. Bloglovin'

OK not a sweater, lol! AND NOT a favorite; BUT What is up with Bloglovin'? This is what it shows when I go to anything on the site but I am still getting the daily emails and when I click on people's posts there, I can go to them but not from Bloglovin. From what I har I am not the only one. Anyone know anything?

5. Misc. Fun


I saw this Vinyl Ink Liquid Lipstick on the blog of my dear friend Kellyann and I knew I wanted to try it. LOVE it, especially in the shades Coy and Dainty!



AND Does this happen to anyone else??

I'll be back on Monday with a VERY Lovely Post.
Love to you all!!!

Over the Moon is an understatement! I am so honored to be an Ambassador for cabi clothing and their Fall 2022 Collection! And what a Fall line it is! So excited to share some pieces that are on my wish list this year and encourage you if you are not already familiar with cabi clothing, you will LOVE them. Their pieces are timeless, mix and match so well and of the highest quality! I have personally met some members of their executive team, and can I say they are every bit as precious in heart and soul as their designs are! Each one of them lives out the mission of helping women feel confident and look stylish doing it daily! And what a fun year to join the team as they celebrate 20 years creating business opportunities for their stylists and helping women look amazing head to toe like in this red complete top and chic jeans called The Skinny!!

How perfect is this outfit for now!! cabi’s accessories game is so strong! I mean just look at that Boss Belt and the Flashback Necklace. Lots of cute jewelry pieces!!

Today, I’m sharing why I love cabi so much and giving you a close-up look at a couple of my favorite looks from the Fall 22' cabi Collection. All Season long, I’ll be showing you how you can pattern mix and give you various ways to style these fabulous and fun pieces. This Evita Coat just may be my favorite of the collection!! And those Flashback Earrings just pop off the red!


If you would be interested in learning more about cabi clothing and possibly becoming a stylist for them, check out this page! I’ve talked to so many women who tell me that working as a cabi stylist is a fun and flexible career choice that has provided them a purpose such as connections to other like-minded women and additional income not to mention a beautiful cabi wardrobe!



The pieces this season are so fun and creative. I feel that cabi does the most incredible job at styling their creations with fun accessories to boot. As I mentioned, having been in the fashion industry for over 20 years, I impressed with not only their designs but how the cabi team styles their pieces in such fun, beautiful and unique ways.

I am literally swooning over these first few Fall outfits! As I was shooting these photos, I could literally smell pumpkin spice in the air and imagine crisp leaves under my feet! Just look at this outfit!! So FALL! These Cool it Crop pants are so chic and comfy! Pair them with the Mason Jacket with the contrasting hues on each side and Complete Top and you have you're ready for FUN!!


Oh the cuteness on my radar, these are just a handful of these pieces I am crushing on: From top left clockwise: Travel Cape // Staple Scarf // Checkout Blazer // // Steady Cardigan // 100% Boyfriend


And some more really good news is that some of my dearest friends are also Fall 22’ cabi Ambassadors including the precious Jill from Doused In Pink. We got to celebrate together a couple weeks ago! Watch our Reels Announcement HERE #cabisquad..Let's GO!!!

19 August 2022



What a beautiful week weather wise. Our pup Miss Stella had a yucky week though. She was due to get spayed next week but on Tuesday we thought she had gone into heat but my fur mama ‘s intuition told me it was something different and sure enough it was blood in the urine or a UTI. She is on antibiotics and pain meds poor girl and we’re hoping she does not go into heat before she can get healed and get the spaying completed! Taking extra loving care of my sweet Stella this week! This Friday favorites is about some of my favorite things: flowers and fashion.. oh and feathers, lol!!



1. Making Flowers Last

You know how I love flowers! While I do love annuals and perennials, I also love fresh cut flowers. I shared with you on Monday how my friend Beth From Farm Grown Flowers made me several bouquets when the ladies were here for their weekend visit. I wanted those beautiful flowers seen here, to last as long as possible!


What I do to keep the flowers lasting longer is every single day is I change the water as well as cut all the stems at an angle rinsing those stems off before I do so. The ones below are a week later still going strong.

A prime way to enjoy flowers is a beautiful, dried flower arrangement. Once the cut flowers are gone in our area, I like displaying a centerpiece of dried flowers to brighten up the home! Preserving nature is a wonderful thing! 

And I will be sharing more in a couple weeks about a wonderful day trip my mom and I took to some local, gorgeous, Botanical Gardens!

2. Emi and Kay
Cutest pajamas you ever did see! You saw in my post Monday where us 5 ladies each got a pair. And I got some pics with my girl too! The Sarah Ruffle Set in the watermelon have their signature cooling fabric and are darling! You need this CUTE SET! USE CODE PINK20 for 20% off.

3. Teddy Blake & Mint Julep

My feathers certainly won’t get ruffled in this chic outfit! Will you look at this baby blue feather top from The Mint Julep Boutique and beautiful stilettos from Teddy Blake. I knew the minute I saw the “Emma” suede heels that I had to get that top and pair with white!!! 

And as always you can use my Teddy Blake Code: TBANDREAN30 for 30% off their shoes and bags! These heels come in five colors and the feather top in several as well. DATE NIGHT HERE I COME!!

4. Gibson Look

This sweater! The fit, the fabric, the neutral nice vibe! Another winner from Gibson Look along with the Blazer I showed you Wednesday. I love the side slits and looser roll neck. Great piece to head into Fall. And you can USE CODE: ANDREA10 for 10% off this cutie and everything on their site!

Spanx Leggings HERE // Polka Dot Head Wrap HERE

5. Misc. Fun


My pink Ivy Geraniums were beautiful in the beginning but not blooming that often but these past couple weeks they’ve been spectacular.



I'll be back Monday with a very Special Announcement!!
Love ya all!!!
