Camo Tunic Part of Fall's New Look

The military look heats up for Fall 2010 and camouflage is an important part of the continuing hot trend. This cute one-shouldered camo tunic is how I weigh in on the trend right now with a feminine approach. It looks much cuter on than on the hanger!

I will advise that it needs to be layered over a cami or tube top because the draped shoulder forms a very deeply scooped out arm hole and if you raise your arm, you'll need a cami! That said, this looks great with skinny khaki or black leggings.

Clearance Sale Summer Tops and Scarves

Catch the markdowns! I've marked down most summer tops and all summer scarves...many are now $15 or less including the cute polka dot top by Timing shown above.

Sacred Threads Overalls

So cute! I love these overalls from Sacred Threads. They're great to wear now over a tank top or cami, then wear them right on into fall with short or long sleeve tees. I like them because they hint at the romper look without being as much trouble to get in and out of as a romper or jumpsuit. And,you can adopt them as part of your look no matter what your age.

They're available in embroidered solids, blue batik print, a colorful patchwork tribal print and a shabby chic patchwork! Whether you're dashing to the grocery,or running a summer carpool they're fun and hip and very comfortable. Matching Mom and Me overalls are available in some fabrics.

Bare Trees and Bird Nests

In February the weather still lends itself to inside reflections, good books, old movies, a dose of Reality TV [Project Runway, Launch My Line, The Bachelor, and yes American Idol] and lots of web surfing. While we're still bundling up in cozy scarves and layers, it doesn't mean that we can't fast forward to thoughts of warmer days as we filter in some soft ballerina pinks, beigey pinks, ivory, alabaster, beige and grays.

[At The Brownstone I have some wonderful crinkled scarves in ivory and natural as well as some ombre charcoal mufflers and amazingly soft woven yarn beige and ivory scarves.]

I love a cozy tunic with leggings and gray or black are the perfect background that we all love. Some of the casual clothing that I am most attached to in winter are grey. There's something very comforting about the color and the more textures the better. Sweats, camis, thermal tops in light gray, a sweat shirt in charcoal as well as a gray cashmere sweater, long and short sleeve cotton tees and tops and charcoal yoga pants, a great knit tunic and a gray knit sweater dress. Wearing gray is relaxing...cacooning at its best. It's also the only phsychologically neutral color.

I am also loving all of the drapey designs in tops, tunics and dresses and hope that they are with us for awhile. [At the Brownstone I have some gray drape front dresses that are sleeveless, but perfect for layering right now.]
