Au revoir

Posted in There's {a} Way

Hello!  The final day of the Olympic competition is upon us!  Be sure to leave your answer when you spot the gold in today’s ensemble in a comment or via email.  The contest will officially close on Sunday evening and I will announce the winners on Monday!  It has been such an amazing experience getting to be part of all the Olympic hoopla in London.  Last night we watched the USA women’s soccer team win gold at their final match versus Japan.  I highly recommend everyone add seeing an Olympic final event in person to their bucket list!  What an experience! I hope you have enjoyed my Olympic inspired ensembles of red, white & blue!  Up next week is a weekend in Paris……swoon.  Cheers!!

Going for Gold

Posted in There's {a} Way

Hello Helloooo! Day 5 of the Olympic “going for gold” competition is upon us! Which means that there is only one more day remaining!  My apologies to Christine and Karen as I mistakenly said on Monday that you each had 1 point going into this week.  I must have had a severe case of travel brain as you both have 2 points (I was in Paris over the weekend and will share some fabulous photos with you next week!!!)  SO you are tied for second place!! Be sure to check this week for the circle of gold on each outfit and leave your answer in a comment or via email.  The contest will officially end at the end of the weekend.  Best of luck to all and pip pip cheerio! Cheers!!

Hello Hello!  Our little Olympic competition is off to a great start!  It is still anyone’s game, but here are the standings thus far.  Judy has pulled into the lead with 3 points,  then there is a pack in the middle with Lolly, Christine, and Karen who all have 1 point.  We are just waiting to see who makes their move and breaks away to medal.  So go get em’ tigers!  Tickety- boo!  Did I mention there are prizes?  Be sure to leave your answers for this week in a comment or via email!  Also the answers to last week’s competition are as follows: Day one: gold belt,  Day 2: gold circles on belt,  Day 3: gold circles on clutch.  Cheers!

I couldn’t resist. How fabulous is his neon Olympic outfit? Go Latvia!

UK & USA

Hello lovelies! Happy Olympics!!  How perfect is this shirt!? The lil’ New Yorker in the UK…golly gee. I am off to my second Olympic event so far. Great Britain versus Brazil in women’s football (aka soccer). Since the weather wasn’t quite on our side I opted for something casual and comfortable. Adding a classic trench to any ensemble is an easy way to add instantaneous chic and really help pull a look together.  Also it is another day and another round in the “gold medal” competition! See if you can spot my gold and leave your answer in a comment or via email.  Cheers!!
