Hmmmm? Makes me think…….
The other day my mom gave me a bag of fresh frozen strawberries and I made the best smoothie with them. Thought I’d share the recipe with you.
 

      1 large handful strawberries, cleaned, hulled and frozen
      11/2 c. orange juice
      1 serving size strawberry yogurt
      1 ripe banana
      1 large handful ice cubes

 
Place all in blender and give it a whirl.  Enough for 2.  Straw required.  Enjoy!

Karen Kane meets Bryn Walker…
  
Scene 1:   Early morning.  Our heroine puts on her favorite new chandelier blouse from Karen Kane.  As she pads off to the kitchen for morning coffee, a thought arrives, “Cute, however… “

Kane meets WalkerScene 2:   “Ooh!  (aha moment!)  What would happen if I added that funky Bryn Walker overpiece?”, she wonders out loud between yawns.  She stretches and takes a second sip of her favorite blend.

Scene 3:   Our inspired heroine returns to her closet where she marries one with the other and creates harmony in a surprisingly new fashion statement.  “Short over long.  Isn’t that what they told me at Sound Styles?”  “I think they were right ‘cause I love this look… it’s totally intriguing!”

Scene 4:   “Now what might be the icing on this cupcake?” she ponders, as the clock ticks away moments before she must dash out the door, off to her morning stroll along the water’s edge where someone special awaits her arrival.

Our heroine saunters to the bedroom window, pulls up the tasseled shade, peeks into the dawn, smiles broadly into the face of a clear blue sky, then shouts with subtle glee… “A hat, of course!”

The moral to our little tale is simply said, What you choose to wear each day speaks volumes… so don’t mumble!

Okay! Okay! Who needs the drama?
 
Just enjoy the “fashion message” here and contemplate putting short over long….  add a tapered leg pant and you’ll immediately look taller and more slender and oh so in the fashion moment.
 
People inevitably make assumptions about you based on how you dress, so why not wear things that nudge them in interesting directions?

 
Stay tuned for further installments of Soundings micro-dramas!

Literally out of the box just today are some fabulous fall pieces from Bryn Walkerclothing where simplicity, beauty and comfort are primary.  Give them an A+ for sophistication and looks yet they are easy to care for and great for travel.  What more could you want?  And it’s very nice to say, they are made in the USA.

               Falling for Fall, right out of the box

Three pieces are especially exciting in design, color and versatility. Shelly and I had great fun opening the box and re-doing the aisle with our newest finds.

Remember the car coat of past?  Well, there’s a new modern version in our short wrap coat with its versatlile length, feminine shawl collar and convenient front pockets.

Then there’s the longer version in our full length wrap coat with its generous collar, easily cuffed sleeves and a cut-away front that flares out to a longer back length.

Add to that our new Branson tunic with dropped shoulders, folded cowl neck and front side pockets… great paired with skinny jeans or leggings and all the coziness of a comfy sweatshirt.  No need to wait for the week-end to don this delicious top.

These pieces are made in a luxurious combination of bamboo and organic cotton and are machine wash warm and tumble dry medium.

The color array is striking from rich golds to warm rusts and earthen greens.
So Bring on Fall!!
