Sunny Days are Coming!

28 Mar

I have really been craving some sun lately. I am in northeast Ohio and the past couple of days have included temperatures in the 30 degrees and some snow. But I can still feel spring coming and I with April right around the corner I can almost feel the sun on my face soon. So inspired by those days, here is an outfit option from MiUS Collection (sunnies and sandals from Piperlime)

Sunny Days

First, I love maxi skirts, floor grazing maxi skirts and dresses are having a moment right now. Maxis have always been a style staple for me. They are comfortable, easy, incredibly flattering, and the style is versatile and perfect for transitioning your spring to summer wardrobe.  OH and if you are petite, don’t be shy, try it with some wedges for the maxi perfect length. Above is the Zoe Maxi from MiUS, features a dip die design with gray, white and pink.  Made in the USA of course 😉

The Lily Chain Tank in pink is the perfect combo for this skirt.   The chain adds just the right amount of edge to this feminine color top.  I added this fabu necklace, it is adjustable length and it adds just the right amount of accent to the outfit. Pair it with this Just USA jean jacket, some sunnies and sandals and you are out the door looking stylish and cute.

What do you think?  Do you like the maxi length?

 

And the WINNER is…

randomness and some pinterest love

7 Feb

february is my birthday month.  it is also a month during the year where nothing noticable happens.  it is the down month.  although january is cold and holiday less (besides new years) i think we still come down of the rush that is november and december.  we clean.  we set new year’s goals.  we stick to new year’s goals.  we organize etc.  but then in february it all slows down.  some people don’t like this.  me, personally, i love it.  i like the feeling of having nothing to do but hunker down and be cozy with my little family.

but that also means i find nothing in my self induced coma, over-worked brain to write about.  nada.  i’m empty.  so here are some random things.  you know…like having a converstaion with me over coffee…

do you know about project life?  it’s a scrapbooking system created by becky higgins.  it takes the over-thinking and the need to be super crafty out of scrapbooking.  i started doing traditional scrap books about five years ago.  then a few years back i drifted into project life.  and although i am behind and only play catch up when my friend hosts crops, it is easy to keep up with and if you google or pinterest project life you find lots of neat examples!

speaking of pinterest…i have tried a few new things (and it was brought to my attention that pinterest board of “pinned there done that” exist! huh.  who knew?)

went to MAC yesterday to buy this lipstick.

now…i really like it…however…it looks nothing like this on me!  i have naturally red-ish lips so this doesn’t look as neutral on me.  it actually adds a pop of brownish-pink color to my lips…but a darker brownish-pink than pictured here.  although its different for me to actually wear a color of lipstick…i do like it.  i also purchased this gloss and news flash…it isn’t sticky!!!  i love it!

and no, mac makeup isn’t made in the usa…but it really works on my “maturing” face so it is what it is…if you know of a brand similar in quality and price to mac that is made here…please share!

we made these breakfast cookies: (another pin on my breakfast board)

i think my family doesn’t like oatmeal/oats.  and that is a bummer…i struggle to find healthy and quick breakfasts for my picky breakfast eaters (my kids will not even eat cereal and [almond] milk!)  but this was not a hit here.  it was easy and i did add chocolate chips…but after now trying oatmeal muffins and these cookies, i think my house has boycotted oatmeal.  they have their dad’s texture issues.  but if you like oatmeal i reccomend trying these.  they were so easy and quick!  and you should have everything in your pantry!

that’s it on my end…besides our contest still going on….details below.  have a happy, do nothing kind of day!

6 Feb

it’s wednesday and brrrrr it’s cold here!  i like it though.  i may have said it before, but i like the change in seasons.  i think winter is a time to cozy up and take a break.  spring and summer seem so much about “going” and “running”…i like this hibernating time of the year.

so something cozy and comfy is in store.  and warm.  and decent enough to run up to the school in, or have a friend over for coffee and feel like an effort was made.

Recently Updated

now…when i first saw this sweater i kind of thought of my dad…who has worn a black or navy cardigan at work daily for the last i don’t know how many years.  and even when i first saw it i wasn’t sure.  but picture it with a bright colored shirt underneath (maybe pull a color from the scarf and use that as your color guide for the shirt underneath??).  how cozy with some skinny pants!  i think it works.

and this scarf…i can’t tell you how much i wear this scarf.  with an outfit or outside with a jacket or coat.  it is one of my all time favorite pieces!  it is so soft and i have washed it so many times already and it holds up so well.

i am not a big jewerly wearer but i do like to throw on something.  i think a ring here makes it a little more of a put together look.

charcoal cardigan $32.99

skinny corduroy pants $49.99

fatima scarf $29.99

leather braid ring $34.99

again…linking up with lindsey from the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday!  such a fun link up party.

come see our botique and get some goodies of your own!  all made in the usa merchandise that is fun and fashionable and affordable.  www.miuscollection.com

wiSww (what i SHOULD wear wednesday) with Free Shipping Offer

16 Jan

i’m back with another installment of what i should wear wednesday.  i link up with lindsey at the pleated poppy for her what i wore wednesday installment.  but mine is what i should/would like to wear.  i also shop with a budget in mind so most of my pieces are $50 and under.

2013.01.16.wiswwPicMonkey Collage

the pants are a “coming soon” item at MiUS, but you can get an email notification when they come in.  they come in teal and charcoal.  normally, i would immediately go to the charcoal but, in this case, it would depend on what colors are in the fatima scarf.  this scarf is my favorite wardrobe piece right now (santa got it for me).  it is so soft and unique…each scarf is made out of recycled t-shirts!  so if you and i both ordered one…they would be different!  it is warm and i get a lot of compliments on it.  so see…depending on what colors are in the scarf would depend on which pants i would pair with it.

and the earrings?  my five year old recently told me that moms are supposed to wear earrings that dangle..not the tiny post earrings i normally wear.  so now i am on the hunt and purchasing some dangle like “mom” earrings.

basic cardigan $24.99

skinny corduroy pants $49.99

fatima scarf $29.99

sparrow earrings $19.99

and, of course, all MiUS products are made in the USA!  so go to the website for this scarf!!

Spring looks Green: A Preview of the Spring Collection

15 Jan

Pantone, the authority in color, named this year’s color as green.   For me, green being my FAVORITE color is like heaven this year looking at all the great fashions in variations of this color.  And this spring 2013…jade green, mint green and shades of coral are making a huge statement in a lot of the collections.  At MiUS Collection, our partners and designers have sent us line sheets and samples of beautiful designs with hints of green for spring.  Here  is a quick peek at our spring collection…a few pieces of what is coming:

Burgundy Obsession

10 Dec
This seasons hottest color is burgundy (wine, oxblood), it is everywhere and I absolutely love it.   I created this fun board with holiday party ideas.  The dress, available at MiUS Collection, is versatile and fun.  The stripes and see through sleeves give it an edge, but it has a classic flattering shape.  I threw in my favorite sequin jacket for those nights that might be a little bit chillier or just to add some fun sparkle to the outfit.
What do you think of this board?
P.S.   Happy Holidays to all!!!
Burgundy and Black Obsession

We are getting so excited…

29 Nov

This Saturday, December 1 will be our very first Holiday trunk show!!  We are super duper excited for this event!!! (Notice the number of exclamation points after that statement 🙂 that adds the tone we are REALLY super duper excited!)  So…let me give you some details!

We will have our ENTIRE inventory for sale at the location.  One of our local designers, Andrea Howell, from Tidal Cool will be joining us as well as local author, Kelley Grealis!  Andrea will be showcasing her winter designs exclusively for sale at MiUS Collection.  Kelley will be signing and selling her novel. PLUS we’ll have models showing you some of the pieces and lovely attendants to help you find your way around the trunks show.   OH…and since we are celebrating, we’ll have drinks (wine) and apps for all to enjoy.   The trunk show will be held at a local store in Medina, Ohio.  The store solely carries made in Ohio goods, which fits right in with MiUS Collection as we are an extension of that theme for our pieces are all Made in USA.  It’s a fun studio, and you will also be able to see and purchase some local art from Homegrown Ohio!  How absolutely great is that!?!?
