I knew some of you would ask for tips on getting the finishes from the faux painter......and I wish I could help you out on that.  Unfortunately he won't divulge his secrets.....since that is his trade.  I know you get it:)

My advice is to research it on know you can find anything if you give it a little effort!

If you have been following me on Instagram then you know I have been posting my #outfitoftheday and it's been fun getting y'alls comments!  Here is the first love before design was always fashion....and when I look at what I wear it kind of reminds me of my design style.  Tailored....not fussy and fairly neutral.

The last few days I have been working on a fashion post for you.  I have tried to stick to basics.....things that can be used over and over again with adding maybe one new thing or 2.

So we start with white jeans....which are now definitely a staple in most wardrobes!

I gave you 2 options for shoes....if I wore this all day I would opt for the sneakers but maybe for a client meeting I would throw on the red mules!  I always like to have a canvas bag to carry samples and such in.

The other day I posted how I wore these camo pants on Instagram.  I got them at the Gap and they are really comfy!

I love throwing in a little pink....the thought being it adds a feminine touch to this look!

Back to white jeans again but with a different twist!  And Lord I love a denim shirt....for just about any occasion!  

This whole outfit started with the belt!  I love it:)


Last up is almost a uniform for me....and perfect for a day like today in Atlanta.....rain!  I gave you a choice with the shoes because I thought these plaid booties were so cute!  And the fact that they are black and white....well all the better.

I bet if you look in your closet you have most of these things and that makes it easy to update like I said with a couple of new things....

Just a few words about yesterday.  It was the longest day ever.....11 hours.  I have lot's of thoughts about it and will write more when I am not so emotionally drained. 

But today is a new day and I am off to workout so I can feel better about me....then an incredibly busy day at work so I can keep my mind occupied.

A big viral hug to you for what you had to endure yesterday. I can't even imagine having to deal with 11 hours of "negotiations", just keep moving forward.

Glad you made it through Monday!
Amy Howard sells products and has videos on finishes that may work for some readers interested in decorative finishes. Of course the biggest secret is that it takes lots of practice to make it look professional!

I love your “outfit of the day” posts on Instagram. You always look so fashionable and chic even when you’re casually dressed. I can tell you are just as passionate with fashion as you are with interior design. Loved all the outfits you pulled together and found several things to add to my wish list. Glad Monday is in your past and you’re back on track, keeping busy with what you do best. You give us all inspiration on strength and graciousness with a sense of humor. You are a warrior, Sherry.

Sherry, I LOVE your style, both in clothing and interiors. Pure talent. I notice your necklaces with many of your outfits. Can you tell me where they are from or what brand? They are the perfect final touch!
