STARTING A NEW BLOG CAN BE AN OVERWHELMING TASK; WITH DESIGN, LEARNING THE PLATFORM, AND CREATING CONTENT. I HAVE SUCCESSFULLY HELPED NUMEROUS PEOPLE LAUNCH THEIR SITES INTO A FULLY FUNCTIONING BLOG.
Whether you are just starting out, or you are a seasoned blogger, consider the benefit of avoiding inevitable pitfalls with just one phone call to Mary Summers. I guarantee it will save you time, energy, and money. With over four years in the industry along with experience in consulting I have been able to direct bloggers toward reaching their next goal.
Seasoned bloggers? Are you feeling stale with your content, or fear that your blog is in a rut? We have all been there! If it is your content, social media, or overall feel I can pin point ways to increase the growth of your blog, to help get you back on track, and meet your goals.
If you have been roaming around the site you have probably discovered “The Find.” On Monday I mentioned a new trend in The Find that you are sure to see this fall – the sweater/shirt combo. This combination was always my favorite growing up. I thank Cher Horowitz for that! She fully embraced this trend throughout Clueless but her pale blue and chiffon shirt, which made her look, “totally serious” was by far my favorite look of the movie! It is one of the most laid-back and easy trends that I have seen in a while and one that I am fully ready to embrace. J.Crew and Elie Tahari are among my favorite designer to create the look but I am sure others will follow! I mean, if it is cool enough for Cher Horowitz, it is cool enough for me!

Travel • Travel in Style
The best way to look good for travel? Your accessories! This may be the cutest travel/overnight bag I have ever seen! I am a sucker for stripes and this bag had me at hello. When traveling it is key to make sure your bag has enough space to fit entertainment, an outfit (incase your suitcase gets lost) and a few key make-up products. I am pretty sure this bag is just about perfect! Bon voyage!
Video • IN HER CLOSET
Do you ever try on a million outfits just to stay with your original? I am here to say, you are not alone! The other day, while standing in my closet, I tried on a million outfits only to go back to the very first one. Since this happens a lot I was inspired to do a little video sharing a few of the choices I debated on! In this addition of, “In Her Closet,” I share 12 different outfits perfect for fall!
I told you yesterday I am obsessing over all things red so to continue on that train I bring you the J.Crew Turner pant. I absolutely love comfortable fashion so when these popped up in my inbox, I knew my next step – size, add to cart, click to purchase. Being comfortable is a key element to my wardrobe right now. I honestly think it is because I pushed boundaries and stressed so hard over what to wear and how “beauty is pain” growing up that now, I just can’t deal! I have seriously lost my tolerance. I swear I even try to wear heels randomly to “keep my system in check” but I always wake up the next morning with achy knees and swollen feet. Call it being out of shape, age, or being out of the game but I just need comfort! Since comfort is numero uno right now, I am ecstatic that the track pant trend (thanks kanye) is here. Being a girl with a wardrobe of blacks I promised myself (and the hubs) to add more color this season. My starting point of focus – red! Just you wait for the next few pieces I might have the hubs asking me to go back to black!
I must admit, Tiffany’s has never been my favorite source for women’s jewelry. Yes, I adore Breakfast at Tiffany’s but their pieces always seemed a little too overpriced for me. Like you were paying for the box and ribbon and less for what was inside. I.hate.that. Until now! I absolutely love their new “T” collection. It is clean, minimal, and timeless! If you are a sucker for the turquoise box, definitely add one of these pieces to your wishlist!
Outfits • Fringe
This Thakoon Addition skirt has been on my mind for the past few weeks. It instantly caught my eye – with its beautiful grey, fringe, and wool. It is the perfect skirt for these coming cooler months! I think it would look amazing with a black turtleneck, black floppy hat, and booties. dream.
Outfits • Lucite Letters
My Tory Burch lucite letters are one of my favorite items I received from my registry. I have an “H” that I use as decor on a stack of coffee table books but I can’t wait to get, “STTS” for my office! They not only look great as bookends but also can stand alone for a subtle home accessory. If you need to fill space but don’t want to overpower the room, be sure to add these lettersto your home decor wishlist! Oh, and they also make excellent gifts!

Gstaad is one of the most beautiful (and chic) places I have been. Walking the streets that Princess Diana, Elizabeth Taylor, and thousands of other celebrities, royals, and diplomats have walked is always amazing to me. One of the first trips I ever took with the hubby was a road trip around Switzerland. One of our first stops? Gstaad. Being a small town girl I had no idea the clout this quaint town had. Walking the streets you feel you are a million miles from life – which I am sure is the reason it is a favorite amongst the elite. This past summer the hubby, myself, and my parents decided to take a day trip back to Gstaad and enjoy a nice summer lunch in the mountains. The air was crisp and the mountains were completely still – the perfect setting! We stopped off at Rialto and enjoyed one hell of a meal! Being gluten-free I am always a bit nervous to eat at restaurants as you never know if you will be eating a side salad because nothing on the menu is G-free or if you are promised something is g-free only to receive it and it is covered in bread crumbs. Long story short, Rialto was none of the above! It was absolutely divine! While we all enjoyed our meals – the men enjoyed pizza and I enjoyed my greek salad – my mom won the ordering lottery with the pork! It was by far the best pork I have ever had! We all topped off the delicious meal with a few desserts that melted in our mouthes! If you ever find yourself in the mountains of Gstaad be sure to stop in Rialto’s!
