Angie's rec Blondo boots and Shannon's Maggie London

Full credit for these spectacular pieces goes our YLF sisterhood.

The boots are Angie's recommended Blondo stretch boots. They fit snugly on my calf and can stretch to fit with skirts or tucked jeggings.

The dress is Shannon's Maggie London wrap dress. Tags are off! There is no way this one is going back!! I wasn't looking for a dress at NAS but when Shannon pointed this one out, it spontaneously jumped into cart. Glad it did because I am in love!!

WIW can't resist the pull of summer dresses

I've talked before about my summer dress obsession. This is one capsule that never feels full to me. I wear them almost year round with toppers in the winter. I wear them to work, casual, motg, all summer long. And there always seems to be one that's on it's way out. So when I see a cute sprightly summer dress, I can't seem to pass it up. No k/r on this one. Check out the perfect length!! It looks like it is pulling across the bust but I think this is just my stance. It isn't really doing this in real life. Thanks for any suggestions for styling. I think the graphic pattern will be very versatile. Have a great day!!

WIW dotty's on the go

Before I start posting my NAS k/r's I thought I would post today's outfit. I am meeting a friend from Alaska today. How lucky am I? I got to meet our own Una (alaskagirl) over the weekend in NYC and now I have another Alaskan visiting! Except Dotty, everything here is very old but being worn in a new way. Feels good for a friends' sunny summer day out. Sorry I have been pretty much out of the forum recently. Life interferes but you all are never far from my mind. Love and miss my YLF sisters.

Hello all alaskagirl is visiting family on the east coast and made time for us YLFers!!!

WIW Custo Barcelona inspiration with ankle strap of controversy

I know everyone is so distracted by NAS right now but I am still in major hug my closet mode. I spent the better part of last year shopping like crazy and I am having so much fun with all of the new combinations every morning. I am not even tempted by NAS --well just a little -- since I already feel like I don't give my clothes enough love. That is a good argument for a smaller more streamlined wardrobe for me. Perhaps having too many choices isn't always the best.

Today I decided to try debombing my turquoise seamed skirt by pairing it with a hi/lo pb blouse and ankle strap sandals. I know that ankle straps with bare legs are controversial, especially for someone who is verrrrry petite, but I just thought if I rocked it with enough verve and attitude, it would erase all doubt. What do you think?
