Style Scouting: Vol. 92

Thanks for stopping by for this week’s Style Scouting. My Sunday post where I share the random stuff that captured my attention or inspired me that I found online.

Greeting from Hilton Head Island, SC. Ed and I along with one Ed’s best buddies are on vacation at the beach.

My new stiff brimmed sun hat. A must when you have vitiligo.

While they golf, I will be enjoying the beach, reading with a filled up Kindle and riding my bike checking out all the beautiful homes on the island.

It is the perfect time to head to a SC beach before the summer vacation season starts. The water is warm and the air temps are nice – not hot and muggy like in July and August. :-)

Fashion & Beauty

I bought this skirt in black – I LOVE it! It has bike shorts underneath. I have worn it with a colorful tee for biking and dressed it up with a black satin top to go to out to dinner. It looks like a dress when paired with the same color top. :-)

Fun & Interesting

I want to be doing this when I am in my 80’s! :-)

Have you heard about this new take on a gardening show? I want to check it out.

Something to Think About

I didn’t know we could request Google to do this.

Time Affluence? – Ever feel like you need more hours in the day to get everything done? What you’re searching for is time affluence, the feeling of being in control of your time and having enough of it to do the activities that are meaningful to you.

You can build it up by establishing your priorities. Plan out your week. Schedule the basics first, like sleep and work, and then plug in fixed items like meetings and appointments. Include me time on your list for hobbies and passions. And plan a meeting-free day to address the nagging must-dos that are taking up emotional space.

  1. Really like the bike skirt you featured. However, reviews say that it runs super small. Did you find that to be true?

    1. Diane Henkler says:

      Hi Victoria – Yes – the golf skirt does run on the smaller side. My sister and I ordered up 2 sizes and like the fit. It is stretchy fabric so it does have some give. I think the sizes are by Asian standards – hence the smaller sizes.

      I also found a Tommy Bahama golf skirt at TjMAxx for $19 that I like even better than the Walmart one. My sister couldn’t find it at her local TjMaxx, but did find it on EBay – You can see it here: It fits to size.

        Thank you for the information, Diane. Love your blog, by the way. It’s inspiring, creative and very useful information from someone who seems like a real person rather than some of the young “influencers” online. Keep up the great work!

  2. I love Hilton Hill. Hope you have a wonderful vacation. Swelling arm means compression so difficult to text.

      Hi Nancy – So far the weather is perfect and we are enjoying the island. I hope your arm gets better. :-)
