living a well tended life... at any age

more tumbleweed love

When I wrote about my recent struggle to find my niche, style-wise, I did not anticipate the reaction the post would receive. So many women stopped to talk to me about how much they enjoyed the piece, and how it resonated for them personally. Whether it was due to a weight change, a shift in career, or (like me) a new “phase” of life, how we dress ourselves clearly is not only an important component to the message we send out to the world, but also perhaps to how we’re feeling about ourselves inside.

For me, the latest search to find that elusive “one place” that would solve all of my shopping needs ended with my favorite little store 3,000 miles away, Tumbleweed Boutique.

I’ve already written about the store (and why I love it so much) here – and of course you can see it for yourself on their lovely web site.

I had so much fun putting together the last post that I thought I would do a “summer’s here” version:

wrap dress with over-sized gingham pattern, paired with long shorts

shirt dress with self-belt over skirt with pocket detail

striped, seersucker tunic over white jeans

another wrap dress, paired with brightly colored board shorts


long t-shirt dress over ribbed tank and white jeans, great leather belt with pouch

 denim pencil skirt and linen tunic (back view to show cute exposed zipper detail)

I basically just lifted this outfit right off the mannequin 

I wore this dress all winter with a long-sleeved tee, cardigan and scarf – here it is pared down for summer

Tissue weight cardigan dresses up a ribbed tank, cropped jeans and sneakers

So – what are YOU wearing this season?

      Thanks Jenna! I can’t credit the gals at Tumbleweed enough – sometimes you just find a place that “gets” you! Love that we have the same taste in shoes – that is my one big weakness! Hope you’re enjoying summer too – thanks for checking in!
