Fall Dressing



From what I've seen of the fall collections they are looking 
very drab to me. I picked some things today that
 are cheerful. Just because it's fall doesn't mean we
have to hide in/under mushroom(dark) colors.



I love these short little dresses. Zac Posen.
The fashion insiders are saying that red is the
new neutral for fall. Is this hype or what? Let me
examine this. In my Webster's Dictionary neutral
is 'having little or no decided color'. I'm coming down
on the side of hype.




This is called rocker chic style and is a trend for fall. Belstaff (British designer).
I would wear this with fishnet stockings (to a Beatles cover band
concert).


I love a beautiful shoe.Givenchy

Summer Orange



Today I am in my garden with this exquisite 'Leonidas' rose.
Its colors represent summer to me.





Here it is two days later sun burnt with a deeper rich color.

with the same camera settings.


I saw this on a tee-shirt at Target
My father used to say 'no excuses'. This  
 seems like a kinder way to say it. Summer is
 a great time to relax, sit back and revisit goals.

Tommy Bahama's in Newport Beach, California




{Model} Boat for sale.



This past week we took a day and headed to the beach and had lunch at
Tommy Bahama's in Newport Beach, California. Our lunch was fantastic.
We had their crab bisque, grilled artichokes, and the Bungalow cheese
hamburger with pineapple relish and avocado. This was the best meal
we have had there. We took a stroll through their boutique 
next door to the restaurant and I found the following. 

Starfish watches-one of my favorites in their jewelry section. 


Lots of summer colors to get you in the mood.

Flip flop bling

Fantastic Men's Section.


One of the post cards they gave away at lunch. 


While driving home on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) we pulled
up to this Tesla {Model S}, the first all-electric American-made sports car.
Mr. COS was thrilled.

Fourth of July Favorites



I love this with the stars (pants $248) and stripes (top). It
is all new from NM.


This is a past Fourth of July favorite from ASOS.


This is my all-time favorite shot for the Fourth.


Vintage Fourth.


Mr. COS as the all-time American rocker. Glasses are a blast from the past from
Dollar Tree.


Everyone is going to Disneyland for the Fourth.


I ate here {T.G.I.Fridays} on the Fourth.
They had this sign posted. Hmmmmm...
