Whew! It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks but life is finally calming down again. A bit. Maybe I'm hallucinating.  Either way, it annoys me when I don't get a chance to create and publish all the posts for this site that I would like to on a regular basis.  But thankfully the breaks are few and far between.
In the coming weeks I have a lot of great stuff planned for you.  My first ever "paid" review from a REALLY unique place. (They didn't pay me, they just asked if I'd like to try anything out and review it. I agreed and really like what I chose.) A couple of new "Ask Image Interpreters" posts. A great one for the men included! And lots of fantastic fall fashion as we approach another Season for Clothes.

For this happy Monday I'm presenting a Modest Moment from the mother of all supermodels - Cindy Crawford.
She's busy in a miriad non-supermodel ways nowadays so current pictures of her don't crop up that often but goodness, the woman knows how to dress in a flattering way.
Love the bright top and white jeans.

I know she's in mid sentence below, but I loved the shades of gray and silver outfit.
Casual but not schlumpy. And it doesn't look like she's trying too hard, unlike some celebrity moms out there who can't seem to master "mom on the go."  Cindy nails it in both shots with flattering jeans, simple-but-not-boring tops, and interesting shoes.
There's a lesson to be learned here!
Whew! It's been a whirlwind of a week.  Visiting family, reunion, etc.  Lots of fun.  While I unpack and wash all our camping clothes, here's the latest inspiration from Piperlime to dress well.  As I mentioned in this post covering all the previous Piperlime ads, I adore these ads.  Sometimes we just need a little weekly wake-up call to present our best selves to the world.

Oh boy, have I ever had lazy days. I'm sure we all have. When they come, I hope we all turn them into a springboard for looking extra great the next day.  
Summer is always a difficult time to keep up on all the fun blog posts I want to do.  I'm leaving today for a family reunion so please enjoy this final round of lovely outfits from Kate's North American tour.  It's a far cry from what I'll be seeing this weekend. 
It's a camping reunion.  Camping is rarely rich with style. Mercy.
Smythe blazer
I found the source of the blazer from this photo I highlighted in the first post of this series.  It's from Smythe.  She later paired it with a sheath dress (below).
Love the simple, structured bag!
Smythe blazer, Roland Mouret dress, Mulberry bag, Manolo Blahnik pumps
Jenny Packham dress, LK Bennett shoes
Lovely dress.  I like the yellow Jenny Packham dress from yesterday better, but this is elegant. I'm not in love with the nude heels with this one. I'd have chosen something in the purple family with this gray/possibly light lavender dress.
Joseph and Natalie dress
Marlene Birger dress, LK Bennett pumps
Whistles cardigan and skirt
LOVING this pleated skirt and lacy cardigan!  I have a skirt very similar to this and will now be creating an outfit like this around it.  Totally love it.
Roksanda Illincic dress
Again, love the simple and elegant dress - would have chosen purple-ish heels.
Wanted to close with another glance at the fantastic Alexander McQueen sweater dress. I would wear this in a heart beat. I'm desperately hoping somebody makes a version in my price range this fall.
