There’s a New Tiger in Town


Animal prints are continuing their reign of the fashion jungle this fall. So move over, leopard. It’s tiger’s turn to make a big style statement. I’m loving the tawny tones and bold graphic impact. And this swingy, puff-sleeved dress is the perfect way to take a walk on the wild side.

Pumpkin Spice

It seems that as soon as we say goodbye to Labor Day, everyone is breaking out the pumpkin spice. I like pumpkin and I like spice, just not in my coffee. Or donut. Or candle. Or shower gel. I prefer to indulge my taste for this fall-ready flavor in something that’s calorie free. Like this versatile, belt-able, wearable dress!

Power to the Pom Pom!

Spoiler alert: this is not a fashion post! But we are talking Pom Poms. And if you’ve been along for the Life’s a Spritz ride, you know I’ve probably never met a Pom Pom I didn’t like. (As seen here, here, here, and here, here, here, and here.) They are cute, soft, round, and colorful. Did I say like? How about love! Keep reading if you want some ideas on how to make your life, and your look, Pom Pom-eriffic.

Queen for a Day

I Queen, you Queen, we all Queen! But for what? How about whatever your heart desires. If I put aside my To Do list for 24 hours, and crowned myself Queen for a Day, where would I start? Hmmm, it’s hard to do whatever you want to do. We’re all so programmed to do what we need to, have to, simply can’t not do. While Queen for a Day is still a work in progress, I’m pretty sure I can come up with one simple thing I really want to do each and every day. And then give myself the time and permission to do it. Baby steps, right? Or maybe a leap now and then.

Switching Up My Smoothie

Good morning, sunshine! Here’s a delicious and healthful new Smoothie recipe that I’ve worked into my breakfast rotation. If you’re new to Life’s a Spritz, you might not know that I’ve been having one Smoothie version or another for…yikes…decades. (As seen here and here.) For me, it’s the fastest, easiest, most nutritious way to get my day going. If you’re not on the Smoothie train, you just might want to hop on once you taste this one!

Thinking Pink!

This rose pink maxi dress is seriously my favorite find for this summer…and beyond. (I plan to layer a black turtleneck underneath and add black booties come Fall.) This color is flattering to every skin tone! Truly!! Just for fun, I wore this exact outfit to a VERY BIG beach party, and so many women said they LOVED the color. I am normally not a big fan of PINK, but I’m making a major exception for this maxi dress! Maybe you should too?

Dressed to a Tee

I hadn’t planned on taking almost 2 weeks to post Statement Tee, Look 2 but between a new work assignment and summertime activities, my blogging goals were demolished. This look is uncomplicated and casual and one you can definitely recreate in your own way. But it’s the details that make the difference.

Statement Tee, Two Ways

In case you missed it, the Statement Tee is making quite the fashion statement. From designer priced to under $10, from rock legends to bucket list destinations to political POVs, the Statement Tee is a quick, chic, and personalized way to update your look. It also happens to be my favorite way to refresh “shop my closet” outfits.

Go Fourth and Be You

Flags, fireworks, frankfurters…however you celebrate, the 4th of July is America’s quintessential summer holiday. And let’s face it, any combination of red, white and blue is one color combo that never gets old. So if you’re looking for a little inspo on how to refresh your summer wardrobe (and maybe a bit of deeper thinking), this post is for you.
