Friday’s Faves


Happy Friday Loves!

Let’s get this weekend started with my Friday’s Faves!

I am in love with a white ruffled sleeve crossover blouse that just elevates anything you pair with it.  This blouse has a dramatic flare which will add that wow factor to anything you pair it with.  Classic black and white is always a favorite that never goes out of style.

Can I just tell you how much I love love love Julie Vos Jewelry!  The beauty and quality of this jewelry is unbelievable.  Seriously ladies, get these on your wish list now, you will not be sorry.  These pieces will be heirlooms and my girl’s are starting their own collections.  I get stopped everywhere I go.  I was sitting having lunch at Nordstrom, three people stopped to ask about my jewelry and who doesn’t love a compliment? The new pieces for fall have me drooling, so Game of Thrones and rich, rich, rich! Talk about living the gold life!

I have just received the most wonderful booties from Rockport.  The style and unbelievable comfort of these booties has me over the moon to think I can wear them all day and not have to worry about my feet killing me at the end of the day.  The color and drape of the leather along with the most cushy lining will make you smile from the moment you slip them on.  Rockport has the brain of comfort technology that meets with classic style.  These booties are made for those on the move.

These will be on repeat all season.  I have linked some others that I have my eye on.  A girl can never have too many options, don’t you agree?

And finally, as Texas has been my home for the past 21 years, and my daughter, That Blonde Rebel, is a new resident of Houston, I want to express all my love and prayers for everyone who is hurting so badly from Hurricane Harvey.  We know how lucky we are. No damage here.  My heart hurts and yet my faith in people has been restored by the many many people who came together to save lives. I have never been so proud of the Texas people and I am very proud to be a Texan.  I wish to thank everyone who has helped, prayed, donated, texted, offered to help my daughter, called to see how I was doing and just sent so much love to my family and our state.  It won’t be fast, it won’t be easy but we will come back.

Thank you all for stopping by.  Have a lovely weekend.








Why Trunk Club is Awesome!


Last week I had so much fun visiting Elena Cohn at Trunk Club Chicago. To experience this amazing service at Trunk Club Headquarters in Chicago was a dream come true! I wasn’t sure what to expect but Elena made it so easy to find the exact pieces I was looking for at my price point. Done and done. So you don’t live in the Chicago area, no problem she can help you look your best over the phone with an interview discussing what you are missing in your wardrobe or what you are really looking for and then, GET THIS,  packs up a trunk and sends it to you.  You have 5 days to try everything on. Keep what you want, return what you don’t or in my case, keep it all (insert happy face here)! There is a $25 styling fee that is applied toward anything you end up keeping.  AND did I mention that Trunk Club is a Nordstrom company so not only will you receive personalized expert service and convenience to look your best, you will even earn those awesome Nordstrom Rewards! I mean it doesn’t get better than that.

Elena choose these shoes for me and I love how they elongate my leg and make me feel so comfortable in white jeans.  Now that is magic!

It’s all in the details from lace sleeves, earrings and accessories to all those cult favorites!  And the best part is I am not running around searching for my must have items, Elena did it ALL for me!

I want to thank Trunk Club of Chicago for greeting me so warmly, for your hospitality (free drinks and excellent service)!  Elena! You are such a gem.  I love everything you choose for me from earrings, shoes, jeans (good grief who knew that could be so easy!) pants and tops. I cannot recommend Elena or this wonderful shopping service more.  So next time you are looking at your closet and thinking I have nothing to wear give this service a try.  I think you will love it as much as I did.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by.




Do you shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?


Well there is a whole lot of talk going on about the NSale. Some good some not so good. I understand that there are so many influencers out there and it can feel like a bombardment of pressure to shop. I also love a great deal and to that end this sale has been a tradition for myself and my daughter for many years now. We make a day of it, go early, shop and have lunch, go home try on and just have fun together. So yes, I love the Anniversary Sale.

I have noticed that different stores receive different or more merchandise than others! Come on Nordstrom not a fair playing field. There were so many things I saw online and in the catalogue that were not in my store (insert sad face). By the time I located them on the website which crashed, they were sold out. I sure hope they are restocked soon. Or else it just wasn’t meant to be.

If you shop the sale what was your experience this year? Good or bad, shopping tips and more, share share share!

These are a few of my finds this year. Let me know what you think!

As always thank you for taking the time to stop by.  I would love to hear your point of view in the comment section.





Pink Lady

Do you believe in the power of color? I wore this look over the weekend in San Antonio.  When it comes to color, I love pink, but especially this shade of pink.  I call it carnation pink!  I think this is a fun look and I received compliments all day, which come on, makes it one happy day for sure. So Yes! I do believe in the power of color and the power of pink!  What shades of color can pick you up and make you smile?

I am sharing all of my favorites at the bottom of this post.  Hope you will click on this post and let me know your thoughts.

Summer Thrills and Frills

From the second I saw this dress on the cover of the H&M Catalog, I was smitten.  I looked for it for weeks online all to no avail.  I walked into my local H&M and low and behold there is was!  Score!!!! I just love it.  I wore it to a girlfriend reunion lunch with some of my favorite fashionista’s this week and seriously I got so many compliments.  (Doesn’t that make a girl’s day?!!!)

I am wishing you all a wonderful day and hope you will click on this post and share your thoughts in the comments box.  I would love to hear from you!

You can shop this look (sorry I can’t find this dress on line still hopefully soon) but here are some great options for you!

Styling A Cropped Jumpsuit

Stop the presses, we got some rain and it actually cooled us down a bit so I could show you a few of my favorite pieces!

I love a classic jumpsuit and this one offered a little edge that I personally love!  I have great news for all of you, The jumpsuit and jacket are are MAJOR sale and you need them both for they will take you from summer into fall.  I will be using the jacket to go anywhere there is AC! (I mean I just don’t get how restaurants, movie theaters, doctors offices want to turn us into popsicle’s, do you? It may be 102 outside but inside is like a meat locker!) I think I will style the jumpsuit with a light layer in the fall and add a boot too, so stay tuned for an update in the fall.   As for these shoes, nuff said.  They are still available and I have linked everything for you below.

As always, I appreciate your stopping by and look forward to hearing from you!



Friday’s Favorites

Happy Friday! Is it just me or are the weeks just flying by? I can’t believe that the summer sales are already here. I have months ahead of me that will include some pretty scorching temps, so I am hoping to stock up on some gems from the sales listed below.

This top is under $30, what a steal.  So cheers to the weekend, which I hope includes chilled rose, air conditioning, pool or beach time and time to relax and enjoy the summer fun!

White this Way!

Well, summer has officially arrived and so has the heat wave. So here is what I recommend to make it through these hot days. Rule one, run and go somewhere cooler!
If that is not possible, pour yourself a cool drink with lots of ice. Seriously Y’all, this heat is brutal and trying to stay fresh and cool is a daily goal. So here is my homage to some of my favorite pieces to have to beat this heat. The common goal is white and light cause it just feels right. This dress is under $50 but I did have to add a slip from my closet as it is sheer. This cool dress will be on repeat all summer.

Thank you for stopping by and spending some time here on The Real Golden Girl! Wishing you cool breezes and ice cold drinks.  Happy 1st day of summer!



Summer Breeze

I just am head over heels in love with this beautiful dress.  It is so pretty and don’t you just love this embroidered mesh overlay? It is very comfortable and has everything I love in a dress, as in great length, sleeves and feels soft and comfortable on.

If you hurry you may still find this dress in some HM stores, I saw a few in San Antonio on the rack, but it is no longer found online (insert sad face).  But I have linked a few other beautiful embroidered pieces that you and I will both have to pick up fast before they are gone too!

As always, I thank you for stopping by and have a great day!



Making time count with my JORD Watch and a Giveaway for YOU

Hello Everyone!

I have never owned a wood watch before and now I must say I am completely in love with my Cora watch. The first thing you notice when your watch comes in the mail is the aromatic and beautiful packaging. The smell of wood is just heavenly. First, you open the packaging to reveal a beautiful wooden box with magnetic closures. Then you open this gorgeous wood box and reveal your unique watch. There is an instruction pamphlet and your watch comes with a preserving oil and cloth. I love the watch I picked, The Cora women’s watch in Zebrawood and Turquoise. The turquoise face color is a beautiful contrast with the rich zebra wood and for me this watch just makes me happy. I am proud to wear this watch with all of my other jewelry. This Cora Zebrawood & Turquoise Watch will be a treasured piece in my wardrobe. There are so many beautiful watches for men and women to choose from.  Go take a look.  All Mens Watches here and all women’s watches here. The craftsmanship is amazing and the attention to detail make all of these watches a forever piece.  As the people at JORD say they are “Telling more than time, that the value of a watch is not in being able to tell how much time has passed, but in being aware of the need to make that time count. Moments are bigger than minutes and your watch should tell more than time.”

So in that feeling of making all moments count, I have partnered with JORD wood watches to give away a $100 gift code to one lucky person and a $25 gift code to EVERYONE who enters, to use towards the purchase of any watch of your choice. So click this link here to enter to win: The Real Golden Girl and Jord watches giveaway   The giveaway will close on 6/18/2017 at 11:59 pm. Both the $100 and the $25 codes will expire on 08/31/2017. Good luck everyone.

I just love how this blue pops and the shimmer in the stones, don’t you?
