Classic blue and white takes a decidedly spring-like turn with these J.Jill separates. Don’t you just love this sweater’s shade of blue? The weight is perfect for this time of year. In most areas (probably not Yuma) you’ll be able to wear it well into summer, especially those evenings when there’s a little chill in… Read More Spring Blues
Lace is having its moment this season. Such a wonderful way to usher in the new season, shedding those heavy knits in favor of fabrics lighter and more airy. I’m seeing a lot of lace in pastel tones, but you’re not restricted there. Why not try something sunny, like bright yellow? And to complete the… Read More Yellow Lace and Ankle Jeans
Earlier this week I styled a white denim jacket. I also picked up the classic blue denim version and dressed it up a bit. It doesn’t take much – cute crops and some heels – and this tried-and-true favorite can go almost anywhere. I like to style classics in unexpected ways. If you have one… Read More Jean Jacket
I’ve been admiring denim jackets for a while and decided to pick up a couple. A classic blue denim version will make it’s way to the blog later this week but I really wanted to try a white one! Potentially impractical, but I own bleach so things will be fine. And I can’t think of a better… Read More White Denim

I’m sure I’m not the only one who struggles with a busy schedule, a lack of willpower and sometimes, just plain laziness. Sometimes I’m tired and I… Read More How to Re-focus and Stay Motivated!
You’re never too old to blush. Soft pinks may not be the color of the season but they’re never out of style. Feminine and flattering, the various shades of blush soften even the most utilitarian of items. Cargo pants? Fabulous. Utility jacket? Yep, softened. Slip on tennies? Undoubtedly! It’s no wonder I’m repeatedly drawn to… Read More You’re Never too Old to Blush
The ubiquitous utility jacket, aka cargo jacket, is another one of those closet staples. It’s lightweight, has pockets galore and, depending on the style, can be cinched at the waist for a less bulky look while boasting a removable hood to save your hair from a surprise light rain. It really lives up to it’s… Read More Ubiquitous Utility
Spring is just around the corner, but the temps are still chilly in many places, making jackets a necessity. You can add a touch of spring to your cold-weather look with bright accessories like shoes or a bag (or both). A black moto jacket over jeans and a tee is a pretty basic look, and… Read More Touch of Spring
Casual Wednesday. Can that be a thing? I’m always on the lookout for an easy look I can wear as-is or dress up a bit with a pair of heels. I’m finding cropped pants fit that scenario nicely.
