Linen Dress Revisited

I wanted to add a little something to this J.Jill linen dress after styling it a couple of weeks ago (More Linen).  The addition of a jean jacket is such a simple thing but it creates a really different effect. It also helps that my neck is back to normal so I can move around.… Read More Linen Dress Revisited

Jeans & a White Jacket

Inspired by a look from Instagram, I’m revisiting a classic summer combination, jeans and a white jacket. If you’re not comfortable trying to carry off an all-white look, switch out the white pants for jeans. I prefer a dark rinse for this pairing, maybe because I admire the constrast, but a lighter shade of denim… Read More Jeans & a White Jacket

Designer or Dupe?

I love a pair of designers shoes as much as the next girl. Yes, you’re paying a premium for the designer name, but you can’t deny the quality. If a top designer’s shoes were poorly made, they would fall from grace in a nanosecond. No one would pay those top prices for subpar workmanship. There… Read More Designer or Dupe?

Spring Neutrals

A while back I wore a white pant suit with nude-colored accents and received some of the nicest compliments! Spring neutrals really seemed to resonate. That gave me the idea to put together a collection of pieces in nudes, creams and whites in that same vein: simple pieces with clean lines and understated sophistication. One … Read More Spring Neutrals
