Hit or Mrs. - My Nana Would Approve   
I picked up these pants a few months ago at the Gap and they’ve been sitting in my closet ever since. Their some overly practical polyester blend with a nice stretchy waistband. This is definetly something I picture on my grandma Nana complete with a printed sweatshirt & polo dicky.
I’ve already imagined some designers at Gap laughing over the dare to release these pants & see if people will buy them simply because of the label. The real reason I bought them was how comfortable they were (and the sale price didn’t hurt either). These have so much give & movement!
I tried to dress them up with a pair of Coach mary jane heels & a nice high collared sweater (Banana Republic).
I would love to know what you think! Did I have a senior moment with these pants?

Hit or Mrs. - Summer Stripes    
It seems that we’re getting a very late summer here in Seattle, so I am finally able to pull out some of my favorite warm weather duds. I love how stripes can do so many things for a figure. You should never make any asumptions about how they will look on you & must always try them on!

Hit or Mrs. - My Mad Men up-do

I just love the fashion from Mad Men (AMC TV show). I was inspried by the imaculate hair on the ladies & thougth I would try something a bit more formal than my usual work hair (which isn’t much).
Take a look at some of the great hair (& fashion) from the show here.
