The Jacket My mom gave me this jacket a while back. Thanks Mom! It’s a great piece, especially since kimono-inspired jackets and wraps are all over style pages. In truth, my jacket is probably more Mandarin-influenced but the overall effect is the same. I guess the longer styles are more kimono-esque, but anything silk or… Read More Kimono-Inspired
It felt like it was time to break out of a color rut. Not a rut so much, but I’ve been combining different colors to give things a new, fresh look. For example, I love this J.Jill flounced shirt, which was last seen here. In both cases I wore it as a jacket. I just… Read More Changing it Up
TULA Skin care prodeucts – you’ve heard me talk about them before. Why? Because they work so well! I’ve always had dry skin, sometimes so dry it felt like it would crack. Finding products that nourish and hydrate without feeling heavy and oily has always been my goal, although I’m all about the oil when… Read More My Skin Care Routine by TULA

Summer hit with a vengeance this week. Heading to a lunch meeting Wednesday my car, hot enough to fry an egg, informed me the outside temp was 113. Ugh. According to the calendar it’s still Spring. For the rest of the country. June-September is the penance we pay for our amazing weather October – May.… Read More Summer Skirt
Like the saying goes, “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” Or maybe a glass of champagne with a little fresh-squeezed lemon juice. 🙂 And these cute shoes. About the time I got this great striped linen J.Jill shirt, my daughters gave me these adorable Soludos shoes. I just had to put them together! My J.Jill… Read More When Life Gives You Lemons. . .
Eliminate, Donate, Participate Recycling has become a part of our daily routine. Glass, plastic, aluminum – these are all commonly recycled materials, but have you thought about fabric or, more specifically, clothing? Cleaning out my closet gives me the perfect opportunity to do just that. I pull pieces that just don’t work for me anymore.… Read More Eliminate, Donate, Participate
I don’t think of myself as a boho chic kind of girl, but once in a while I find a boho-inspired piece I like. This J.Jill Peasant Top caught my eye recently and I thought I’d give it a go. I love the embroidery which includes just about any color you might want to use… Read More Feeling (Slightly) Boho
