Dream Alive

Green grass and evenings in the rain. May is such a beautiful time in Indiana. I love the fresh flowers and sun kissed skies. May is also such a fun event filled month! My family and I had the pleasure of visiting a beautiful home for a great cause. One of my dear friends invited us to the Dream Alive event hosted at her families home. The Dream Alive organization helps provide Indianapolis urban youth with the tools that will help them become leaders in their communities. We also chatted with some of the influential Colt’s football players that have made it their mission to lead this amazing organization.

My Emilliner

I always enjoy Derby season in Indy. There are so many wonderful events that call for a hat! I decided to wear one of my most cherished hats to the Decorators’ Show House Designer Tea event. My “Emilliner” Emily Clark hat is one of my favorite treasures. Hand made by the designer, I feel it’s a little shining gem in my very tiny collection.

Pop of Color

I am so happy that it was finally time to break out some of my Lilly for Target finds! The blue handbag really pops with an all white outfit. Spring is officially here … but someone needs to tell mother nature to bring a little bit warmer weather our way. Even a small chill in the air can’t take away my spring state of mind!

Make Summer “Worth” It

We enjoyed another wonderful visit to the Indianapolis Worth studio to view the Summer 2015 collection. I naturally gravitated towards nautical colors and patterns. This is my favorite style for the warmer seasons. Nautical stripes and colors are simply timeless… which means they are great investment pieces for your wardrobe! Take a peak at some of my favorites!
