May 2019 -- Cindy's Favorites

As the seasons are slowing transitioning here in the mountains, I have found myself reaching for some old favorites.  While the snow has finally melted and the days are getting longer, the tiny buds are beginning to pop on the aspen trees surrounding our home.   But there is still a nip in the air.  By now, I am tired of dark denim, boots and leggings! 

It’s always been my ‘style’ to mix high w/ low . . .I love nothing more than to find and wear affordable pieces with higher priced items (Shoes are usually my splurge.) Good old Levi’s have become my go to as they are often on sale which = super affordable! Check out these skinny’s in a multitude of colors!

I am sometimes slow on running with trends and I admit that I have struggled with how to wear high waist crop flare jeans but I think they are here to stay. So when I was recently in San Diego I spent some time in Madewell and I caved for this pair. I am a fan as they can be worn with most any top (just not too oversized) with a small (borderline sloppy) front tuck. These may be my new summertime go to! Go down one size as they run a little big.

Growing up in So Cal, a girl always needs a great pair of thongs! (Yep, that what we called them) Now referred to as flip flops! With my aging feet, flip flops just don’t work for me anymore so again, while in SD I was on the search for the perfect slide to replace my old ff’s. I found them and love them and find myself wearing them ALL the time! Super comfy and practical and serve as more than just a beach shoe but can still withstand the sand when needed! In love and they come in four colors!

As many of you know, my workouts are very important to my wellbeing. (Because I spend so much of my time in my workout clothes I justify quality and Lulu’s are my go to) I have officially ditched my leggings so am now reaching for my favorite shorts.

Although, I just received the Athleta catalog and think I may give these a try!
My current favorite tank is from our local store, SQN, but don't owrry, they have a great website also. I find that it has nice coverage around the armhole and also has a slight flare which helps when dealing with side boob and back and belly fat! (It only gets worse as we age!)

This may seem like a silly favorite but I always have it close at hand. Especially now that it is allergy season and under my nose is constantly red. I smear Bacitracin on liberally every night to keep things in check!

My list would not be complete without my favorite CK bag! I am currently carrying and loving my Jackie. I generally tend to carry a larger bag but I am loving her more compact size. She is so easy to sling over your shoulder or carry crossbody and feels sleek and maybe even a little bit ‘sexy!?”

Hope this inspires you . . . Celebrate the miracle and beauty of Spring!
