Vacation Anyone?

It’s getting colder outside, maybe not in Arizona, but in the rest of the states! This is the time when people start dreaming about a vacation to somewhere tropical. I know because I used to do the same before we moved to Arizona 4 years ago.

What do most women do before we embark on a vacation? Shop! Yes we go out and find a few fabulous outfits or a few new pieces to add to our wardrobe. The designers put out some gorgeous “Resort” wear every year, so I thought I would share some of what has inspired me. I may live in Arizona and yes it’s beautiful this time of year, but I love the beach, the warm tropical beaches, so of course I am also dreaming of a tropical vacation too! 🙂

Oregon Football Fashion

As women we typically talk about fashion in the sense of what we love to wear, what is trending and what’s on the runway. But I thought I would talk about fashion in a different area, the Football arena!

I have to admit that I love the Oregon Duck Football uniforms, Nike has really outdone themselves. Being that my husband JJ Birden played football for the Ducks and I spent my college years there, we are partial to the Oregon Ducks.

 Tonights game uniform is especially close to our hearts with the Ducks supporting Breast Cancer Awareness month. Here is a glimpse of the fabulous uniform they will be wearing tonight! I have also included some of the other really cool uniforms the team have worn throughout the football seasons.

We love our Ducks! Who is your favorite college football team?
