It’s still Friday somewhere.  And you know what that means…. a little something something from Mr. S’s grandmother!  This time, it’s a beautiful brown dress.  Please excuse my absence lately.  October has been a crazy month in a good way, and it’s just the beginning as the holidays roll around!  Someone may have fun things to tell you about soon.  Wink, wink.

Mr. S calls this my Stars Wars dress.  He thinks the material looks like Obi-Wan Kenobi’s robe!  LOL!  This brown ‘robe’ was calling for an update with my BCBG toggle belt.  The ombre blue is such a great pop against the brown. 

The Style Rx:  Blue and Brown are a beautiful and easy pairing for Fall.

Anyhow, hope y’all enjoy the weekend.  My girlfriends are coming to town, and we are going to have so much fun catching up!  I LOVE my girlfriend time!  :)
