HOT FLASH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Texas hill country begins to call as we enter into autumn….quaint villages like Boerne, Fredericksburg, and Wimberley offer bundles of boutique shopping and Americana Bed & Breakfast stays. But ladies, remember the fashion rules I have given you so far. Avoid the shapeless, loose clothes and look for items with fit! Fashion wise? I have discovered the hill country boutiques to be best for accessories such as jewelry, scarves, bags and shoes. It is a lot harder to find affordable, quality, clothing with fit. While I prefer these shops for interior treasures, I have at times found some treasures for the exterior (I have some turquoise jewelry from Frederiksberg that I love). BUT, and this is a big BUT, avoid holiday sweaters and sweatshirts. Step away quickly…. There is no way that sporting a large pumpkin or Christmas tree on your torso is flattering.

  1. I’m reading your blog for the first time and enjoying your POV. You made me laugh with the comment about holiday-themed sweaters—made me think of Colin Firth in “Bridget Jones’s Diary.”
