Friday On PCH

Happy Friday! I thought I'd take this week off from Eye on Style to simply take a breather and thank you for dropping by Trust Your Style and my new street style blog, On PCH. As you can see, there have been some changes around here--we're getting ready to make the leap to a different platform but this is the intermediate face lift--hope you like the new streamlined look!

My creation

Have you been On PCH?

I also wanted to let you know how great it's been to see familiar faces over at my new street style site! Like all new things, there have been surprises, and one of those is how much I've enjoyed getting a chance to cover men's style alongside women's style. I worked as a men's stylist for years, and am having so much fun documenting the way relaxed style plays out along the pacific coast highway. One of the things that happens in my hood, as well as many other California beach towns, is that people knock off early on Friday's to surf. So if you haven't yet dropped by, make sure to catch the new weekly Surf Friday post over at On PCH!


Finally, speaking of stylish men, today would've been my dad's birthday. I decided early on after he passed away that I would try and celebrate this day rather than the day he died, because he had so much energy and was all about living life. This year I'm proud to say that he's included on the ALS Association's Wall of Honor: a visual tribute recognizing our military heroes with Lou Gehrig's Disease/ALS as well as those veterans we already have lost to the disease. Military Veterans are approximately twice as likely to die from ALS as those in the general population. You can read some of their stories of courage by clicking on the Wall of Honor.

Wishing you a wonderful Halloween weekend--hope it's a sweet one! Meet you back here next Monday for more stylish goodness!

Mary Jo, I love that pic of your dad I have one of mine just like that - isn't it funny to look at them with their young baby faces?

Love the new look and the tribute to your dapper dad! I take the same philosophy as you -- I celebrate my dad on his birthday, not the anniversary of his death. Luckily for me his birthday was July 4th so the entire country celebrates with me! : )

What a lovely tribute.

Hugs to you, Mary Joe!

Ruth Furtado said...

I love this image of your Dad. I see so much of him in your face! I also focus on my Dad's birthday each year rather than the anniversary of his passing. I pray that some treatment is found for ALS and that the world recognizes the struggle all of us with chronic disabling diseases face every day. I applaud you for continuing to shine a spotlight on the ongoing battle against ALS.
Ruth xoxo
