I am a candidate for Fashionistas Of The Month – September 2015 Edition in Starcentral magazine! Please vote for me here! You can vote once a day! And you can apply for the candidate for next month too! Thank you so much! 🙂

Are you still following celebrities for fashion and style inspirations? Oh no! If so, you’re already out of date! 😉 In fact, nowadays fashion bloggers are the new cool kids on the block and already are at the leading edge of the trends all over the world.

I wore this outfit two weeks ago on a day trip to the city of Port Huron, Michigan. For my Christmas present last year, my step-daughter gave me some admission tickets for 4 museums there. As you may have guessed from the name, Port Huron is next to Lake Huron, so we figured we’d better use them while the weather is still not too cold to be near the water. One of the museums is on a boat and another is a lighthouse so they were definitely summertime destinations. Unfortunately the weather that day felt much more like autumn than August. But that’s often the way it is this time of year in this part of the world. The kids (and teachers) are back in school and fall is coming fast. So we may as well start to think about how to dress for the season.

I’ve always wondered why that season is the only one with two names. Some people call it fall and others call it autumn. Both are correct and either can be used. But why not other seasons? I mean spring is my favorite. It’s when things come back to life. We start to see green again in Michigan. So why not an alternate name for spring? How about blossomer? Or greenup? Or for summer we could also call it hotumn? Actually in Michigan we do have several other names we call winter but I can’t really say them. This IS a family blog you know! Fall or autumn offers a lot of outdoor things to do in Michigan, so today I decided to focus on fall casual chic looks.

Tired of dressing up? Just pick a comfy men’s sweater, pair it with an edgy leather skirt, also add a cool oversized clutch, you are ready to go for a fall brunch with your crew.

Going somewhere for the weekend? If you will be on your feet a lot then please be kind to them and wear flats. To glam up your jeans and sports shoes, just simply add a colored blazer.

I rarely enter any giveaways; because I am lazy and some of the giveaway requirements are just ridiculous. I hate to follow more than 5 people on all their social media. I easily have to spend more than a half hour to enter a giveaway, so thanks but no thanks, it is not worth it.

But I did break my own rule for my dear husband recently. See how powerful love is? Anyway, I worked with firmoo.com back in May, you can read that post here. I also attached a few photos below.

For those of you who are not familiar with FirmOO.com, they are an online seller of prescription eyewear with a SUPER REASONABLE PRICE! When I say reasonable I mean it’s quite possible to find a pair of under $50 prescription glasses with a very trendy look.

I fell in love with their quality, good looks and super awesome customer service. It turned out I am not the only one. My husband somehow really liked firmoo, and he wanted a pair of prescription sunglasses. Well, my dear husband doesn’t ask for much and puts up with a lot, so how can I refuse? So he ordered and quickly got them. Not surprisingly, he loves them. So much in fact that he asked me if he can get another pair so he can leave one in his car and another in mine. We drive each pretty regularly so it’s not unusual to be in either when we go out. And it’s also not unusual that he sometimes forgets to grab his sunnies from his car when we head out in mine and then he’s squinting for the rest of the day. So, he reasoned, if he had a second pair, he will never run out of sunglasses. At first I felt it was such a ridiculous idea. Crazy talk in fact! But after sitting in my walk-in closet which he built for me, looking around at my countless clothes, designer sunglasses, shoes and purses I got to thinking, well, maybe he had at least a small point.

Of course, I didn’t tell him he might be right. That information is always on a “need to know” basis and can be dangerous in the wrong hands. So right before I gave him the OK, I found two Firmoo giveaways on some of the blogs I follow. Now if I could win a second pair of glasses for him I would both save some money AND since I would then in effect be giving my husband a “gift” he would naturally want to reciprocate. This now sounded more like a win-win so I broke my own rule and entered the giveaways. By the way, they were actually pretty easy giveaways to enter so that made it a lot less painful. And a few days ago I was notified by dear Ada from eleganceandmommyhood to tell me that I won the giveaway! Yay, this was my first win! So exciting!

The awesome Firmoo folks remember me too and asked if we can work together to run a giveaway on my blog as well. Hmmm, I don’t know, let me think…oh who am I kidding? How about Hell yes! Maybe now somebody, and it could be you, can have a chance to make their husband, kids or maybe just their self a little bit happier by winning some cool glasses.

Remember, I hate very complicated giveaways so I will not make you suffer either. You just need to follow me on Instagram & Facebook and leave a comment below to tell me which glasses you would love to get from this list here. This giveaway will last 7 days. About the Prize; One pair of Firmoo glasses with free shipping to US from this same list above. Glasses include the frames, standard 1.50 index single vision lenses. Upgraded lenses and add-ons will be charged for an extra fee.

Personally I love these:
