Dave Matthews and the Beetle Scarf

20 Jul

IMG_0047

So we all know my affection and affiliation with India Hicks.  One could say I’m obsessed with her and her lifestyle products.  I’m actually giddy with excitement to be able to hang with her in Palm Beach early next month.  Not only because, again I love her and her products, but while I don’t know her personally (not yet 🙂 🙂 🙂 ), she is probably the coolest chic ever… And how and why do I know this?  Take a gander at her blog post below… She hung out and was friends with Dave Matthews and didn’t even know he was a Musical God!

Reposted from India Hicks blog…Meaning, this was written by INDIA HICKS, not me…

A NICE CHAP FROM SEATTLE

A nice chap from Seattle came to stay on the island a few years ago, with a hot yoga wife and three kids.

They came over for supper and drank a lot of tequila. We liked them. We became friends.

A few nights later one of my kids pointed to a film on TV, “Look its him!”

I googled Dave Mathews. Good Lord, this scruffy dude was a mega music star. With a colossal frenetic following and two Grammy awards. How had we not noticed?

Dave came to England to perform a couple of years ago. I took my two eldest boys to see him, even though they were quite little at the time, we went backstage, sat in his changing room and watched the pre-show circus go by.

After a while an assistant ushered us out, “Dave needs to get ready now,” she said in a hushed tone. We went to take our seats. “What do you think he’s going to wear?” asked one of the boys. We had also sat with Mick Jagger before one of his concerts and when the lights went down Mick came out in a sparkling peacock blue shirt undone to the waist and skin tight leather trousers with crocodile boots.

As the Dave Mathews Band concert began, the lights flashed and the auditorium drummed their feet on the ground in excitement and anticipation, and out onto the stage walked Dave, dressed in the same cozy cardigan and jeans that we had just left him in. And I loved him all the more.

Last week whilst I was away David sent me this snap with the words: ‘Dave wants more’ But of what? Tequila or beetle scarves?

Yes, this picture has been posted above, but it’s so cool, it gets a second look!

India Hicks Siren Scarf… aka, the Beetle Scarf

Did someone mention the Beetle Scarf?  The Beetle Scarf comes in five colors: Aubergine, Sunset Orange; Army Green, Cream; Black, Cream (the one #DMB is wearing); Stone, Flamingo Orange (my personal fav and the one featured on the pup above); and Dove Gray, Cream.

Here’s the Deal… I will donate 20% of All the Proceeds from the Sale of the Beetle Scarf to the Les Turner ALS Foundation in the months of July and August.  Win/Win.

http://www.indiahicks.com/rep/terry

Go to Accessories and there you will find the Siren Scarf!  20% of All Proceeds from the Siren Scarf $58 (aka the Beetle Scarf), which is $11.60 per scarf to the Les Turner ALS Foundation.

That’s something to smile about!

And what do I love more than India Hicks?  How about two of my favorite people, ever, who are Dave Matthews Band (DMB, for those, like me 4 years ago who didn’t know what DMB meant) obsessed fans… I mean, obsessed fans!

Mark and Tracy before a Dave Matthews concert, #DMB, earlier this month.

Song of the Day:  Ants Marching by Dave Matthews Band

He wakes up in the morning
Does his teeth bite to eat and he’s rolling
Never changes a thing
The week ends the week begins
She thinks, we look at each other
Wondering what the other is thinking
But we never say a thing
These crimes between us grow deeper

“Would you not like to be on top of the world with your legs hanging free”?  – Dave Matthews

Uhm…Yes, yes I would!

White Hot Summer

8 Jul

We are in the midst of summer and it’s turning into a White Hot Summer.  White is the new Black.  I’ve been asked why I don’t provide links to the clothing I feature.  It’s because I’m not necessarily promoting these actual outfits, but I’m using them as a guideline.  Look in your own closet…Yes, shop in your own closet, and find looks that you yourself can emulate.  I’ve been doing it for years.  Of course feathering in some Etcetera and Nordstrom and Bloomingdale’s internet shopping sprees, but working the new in with the old.  My favorite summer trends are loose, shift dresses and the off-the-shoulder and the cold-shoulder dresses and tops.

Here are some of my favorite white summer looks.

1281e312bef16ed5ad908ca99757b481

Shorts are a tad short, unless you are under 20, but love the bag and love the blouse-y blouse!

0dc58be321abaf1ef796761318ed5a2e

Metallic accessories are the perfect way to dress up your whites.

984e1b3f4b86e53134ae72a51731b768

Also loving the brown purse with the white dress.

 

71dcbf2b3ef1311aaf6fa92591eca37c

Classic.  Oldey but goody.

 

62dc8ba7f7ec9b6e34a48ab233adf9f8

I’m especially loving the loose summer dresses.

 

73b94a4092805cf195c40a4fd6cacbc7

Another loose summer dress.  You cannot go wrong with this look.  Of course, the hat is an all-day decision.  Bear that in mind when you pop a fedora on your head.

 

ddf8d53df112aae04118af208a10f946

Love, love, love.

e5ed6d984df4a8952d850dc2356dabd0

Off the shoulder is my absolute favorite summer trend!  Now is the time to buy as summer clothes are now on sale.

00c2c5c6d894770590f40ea566259134

An off the shoulder loose summer shift dress.  Win-win.

e66f13866f0c2d7570cdaebe32e89556

White pant suit.  Yes, you can wear white after Labor Day (sorry, Kathy P).

6443a3903a671f0cd0017c5b8de249b3

White skinny jeans with white off the shoulder top and nude pumps.

289d42279583b5741ddffe20b70fbab7

Short in front.  Long in the back.

80c1f8792159cf1eebb47323a4469b54

Love this paired with the gladiator lace up sandals.

More of the same.

Love, love, love.  But perhaps not “age-appropriate”.

ce188cdf9e6036c64c9238d8145705d1

Loose white pants with white sandals.

More age appropriate!

With just a touch of blue.

love the Tiffany colored bracelet.

Basic Rules for Wearing White

From: womens-fashion.lovetoknow.com

With the modern day emphasis on style being more of an individualized concept than of people blindly following advice without knowing the original basis, you might feel there are no hard-and-fast rules to follow when it comes to fashion. Still, if you’re more of a traditionalist, are afraid of showing up wearing the wrong thing or just like sticking to style guidelines (even if others say they’re outdated), you can follow these “rules”:

  • Don’t wear a white dress to a wedding: This is one that most fashionistas seem to agree on. The only woman who should wear a white dress to a wedding is the bride. It’s fine if your ensemble has white in it, but head-to-toe white for anyone but the lady exchanging vows is generally seen as a no-no.
  • Wear off-white in cool weather: If you just love white and the way it complements your complexion, but you’re still afraid to wear it during the winter, choose off-white, cream and beige clothing instead. Even die-hard fashion traditionalists usually O.K. winter white.
  • Warmer climates usually have more leeway: If you live in a tropical environment, white clothing probably seems necessary, even in winter, especially if your days are full of 80 degree weather. You can probably pull off cute summer dresses in light colors year-round and no one in such a hot climate will bat an eye.
  • Wear the right shoes: Heavy black pumps paired with lightweight white dresses can be an odd combination. If you wear a white dress in the spring or summer, better options include natural toned or white sandals. If you choose to wear white in fall and winter, brown shoes still look better than black (and for sticklers to the rules, white shoes should be avoided after Labor Day).
  • Avoid white clothes in city environments: For anyone who lives in a bustling city and relies mainly on public transportation, wearing white clothes is akin to courting disaster. Between subways, taxis, dirty seats and puddles, it would be a miracle for a white dress or slacks to make it through the day unscathed. This is one of the main reasons you see so many metropolitan women sticking to black ensembles – not only are they slimming, they don’t show dirt as much.

Song of the Day:  Whenever I see Your Smiling Face by James Taylor… because I was lucky enough to be at  the James Taylor and Jackson Browne last week at Wrigley Field… and Even more lucky to be with my daughter Meredith at the concert!

IMG_3491

Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile myself because I love you, yes, I do.
And when you give me that pretty little pout, it turns me inside out.
There’s something about you, baby, I don’t know.

 

Coming off a truly fantastic holiday weekend and looking forward to a great weekend with two of our favorites!

13439070_10154196440374627_2248263354129764375_n

What I’m reading:

The Calendar Girl Series – by Audrey Carlan.  There are 12 books in all.  This was recommended to me as a “fun summer read”.  Because it’s a 12-book “series”, I felt obligated to finish it.  Thankfully each book can be read in about an hour.

Me Before You by JoJo Moyes – I’m reading this because I saw the movie and Loved it!

Living with the Devil – by Lori Hart and Cindy Mulligan.  Loved this book so much I blogged about it yesterday.

Movies I’m recommending:

Finding Dory. 🙂  Even better when you see it at the iPic with 1/2 priced wine night.

Me Before You.  Loved it so much I bought the book.  I love, love, love this movie.

What else is new?  I had my first shot of Fireball.  And had my last shot of Fireball. 🙂

Have a fun and festive summer weekend!

xoxo,

T.
