what’s better than a weekend morning with nothing to ponder but a cup of coffee and the scenery around?  with current trends, you can do just that while looking spunky and spirited.  with a plethora of colored and patterned jeans in stores and online, it’s an easy look to acquire.  these hudson jeans are one of my favorite pairs.  with its nebular design, they are interesting and quirky and casual enough for a cup of coffee.  Add a statement necklace, a cozy sweater and some sunnies and let’s have a cup of coffee!  in these jeans, your cup of coffee is sure to be out of this world!

the Panama hat has quite a history.  it’s practicality and style have served it well over the centuries.  From its beginnings in the 17th century, to Theodore Roosevelt and its rise to icon status, it’s fame was further established in acclaimed hollywood movies like “to kill a mockingbird” and “gone with the wind.” today, its classic, contemporary, and practical elements are gracing the heads of thousands of spectators at one the world’s most celebrated sporting events Rolland Garros. this is a hat transcending time, bringing history to present day and it’s track record proves it can be worn with almost anything from a silk suit to current street styles.  with white denim jeans, a kimono-style top, bright belt and wrap bracelets, this hat certainly “tops off” my look.  with the perfect wide brimmed hat to shelter me from the sun, i’m ready to take the oklahoma fields by storm.

one of the best discoveries i’ve made since moving, is that most cities of relatively large size have an avid arts scene. at the oklahoma city museum of art, thursdays in the summer mean “cocktails on the skyline.”  one can enjoy museum exhibits, a drink {or two}, vast views from the 5th floor patio, and marvelous music…all at an affordable price. with dale chihuly masterpieces (as seen in the photos above), it’s surely a treat, whether it’s your first visit or your 45th:)  for this cool may evening, i wore a tulip skirt, paired with a soft, subdued see-through top.  the wedges completed my look, giving it the sophistication “a night at the museum” requires. i thought the wedges paired quite nicely with the chihuly masterpiece pictured in the museum lobby.  don’t you?
