A Twist On A Classic

I’ve been pinning like crazy recently. Not too many fashion related pictures though, it’s more along the lines of interior design stuff. For my next house, I’m thinking about pulling inspiration from the mid-century era and adding current elements to it. I could probably blame this whole idea on my binge watching of Mad Men on Netflix, but something always seems to catch my eye when there’s a spin on classics.

This watch from JORD falls into the classic-with-a-twist category. Usually when people think about the material that watches are made out of, they think metal. Jord watches though, are crafted from wood.

One of the benefits I’ve found from wearing a watch made out of wood, is that it’s incredibly light! I can barely tell that it’s on my wrist. Such a pleasant treat during these hotter days of summer.

My little guy was completely shocked to find that mommy’s watch was wooden! He found it on my dresser and started to knock on it as if it were a door. And then he proceeded to claim it and wore it around the house for the afternoon. I guess Julia isn’t the only style thief anymore!

Jord provided me with a watch for review. All opinions are my own.

Multifunctional Wardrobe Pieces

If you’ve been around KUF for a bit, then you probably know that I make my wardrobe work!  Meaning rarely do I just wear one item one way.  Take this dress…last time I wore it “as is” with a jacket and cut-out wedges.  The time before that, I pinned up the lining and let the lace detail take the stage.  Today this dress is being worn as a skirt.  A dress that can be worn three different ways, now that’s getting use out of the old wardrobe!

This Canonbury Clutch is another multifunctional piece.  I love that it comes with a removable strap!  It’s currently in my work bag in clutch form…but I keep the strap with me in case I need to run an errand with the kids and be hands-free.  I have it here in Sulphur, but it comes in six other fabulous colors (including leopard print!)  With the use I’ve been getting out of it, I just might have to pick up a second color!

From now until October 27, you can shop the Boden site and save 40% on selected items!  And if there is an item that you like that’s not on sale, use the code K155 to get 15% off and free shipping.

It’s hard to tell that this dress even has a print on it, unless you’re looking at it close up.

But I love putting small details like that into my outfits.  Small details…and sometimes crazy printed shoes!

Preparing for Fall

black lace dress, army jacket

Last time I wore this dress, I pinned up the lining for a different look.

But this time, a black lace dress with an army jacket made for an easy combo for a work day/social night.

And once the fall season really sets in, this dress will continue to transition nicely with boots and an over-sized cardigan.  (I’ve been stock piling cardigans…they just have so many styling possibilities!)
