Peacock Blue For Fall

I really love peacock blue.   It is one of the new colors for fall.  From home decor, to fashion pieces and accessories, peacock blue will be appearing everywhere.  I am thinking of a peacock blouse with dark jeans or black pants or a black blouse with peacock earrings or necklace.  I am still on the look out!!!  As for in the home, I would love to set a peacock and green table. Perhaps for Thanksgiving!!!  Stay tuned!!!!

Awesome Instagram Outfits

I absolutely love Instagram.  I use it as a resource for everything, travel ideas, recipes, home decor tips but mostly for fashion pointers.  I "like" photos of outfits all week long so I can revisit them later for inspiration.  I decided to share some of my favorite looks with you.  I hope you like them as much as I do.....Enjoy!!!!

Book Club Monday

Today's Book Club Monday is The Girls by Emma Cline.  It has been chosen by Amazon as one of the best books of the summer.  I hear the storyline is spellbinding, addictive and shocking.  I am on the fence about reading this one but since there has been so much hype, I thought I would post about it and let you decide.  The reviews are beyond!!!!  The story goes like this.....

Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence.

Emma Cline’s remarkable debut novel is gorgeously written and spellbinding, with razor-sharp precision and startling psychological insight. The Girls is a brilliant work of fiction. Review
