What do you think about animal prints? Would you wear leopard after 50? I’ve liked leopard accessories, but I haven’t thought about wearing it as a major piece. Then my sister-in-law, Laura, wore the cutest leopard cropped pants one day and I was on a mission to find a pair. She’d bought hers a year… Read More Would You Wear Leopard After 50?
I’m still milking this shirt for all its got. It’s such a great fall transition piece! Almost everything goes with jeans, so no surprise this cute top does as well. With a great color like Olive (even though J.Jill calls it Arugula) I can look like fall while it still feels like summer. How are you… Read More More Olive
Fall Look There’s nothing like a casual weekend after an overloaded week. Put on a comfortable pair of leggings and a shirt and you’re good to go. It’s a great way to look pulled together with virtually zero effort. More than most looks where I’ve changed out the shoes to give you a different mood,… Read More Fall Look Two Ways and Random Thoughts
Still Wearing White What do you think about wearing white after Labor Day? It’s not an earth-shattering question, but it’s funny how certain fashion “rules” find their way into our lives. I think this “rule” had more to do with shoes than anything else. I remember my white patent leather Mary Janes going into retirement… Read More Do You Wear White After Labor Day?
Don’t you love mixing business and pleasure? These J.Jill cuffed plaid pants help me with that combination. They look like trousers but feel like your favorite pair of yoga pants.

I’m doing that today with pieces you probably already have in your closet. Sometimes little changes can make… Read More Little Changes
The Stuff Beauty products/body care products. Love ’em, hate ’em, can’t live without em? Do you feel as overwhelmed as I do trying to negotiate the beauty aisle? So many products. When we moved to our new home I realized I, too, had so many products. Seriously. I could stock my own beauty… Read More The Five Body Care Products You Really Need
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
Sometimes things don’t go as planned. Okay, perhaps more than sometimes. I had this vision of a streetstyle-type photo shoot for this denim outfit. Sigh. We got a late start. It was hot. It was windy. We had so many other things to work on we were pressed for time. It doesn’t matter what the… Read More Just Denim
Ah Tanner! He’s such a sweet boy, but he has such a penchant for getting in the way. If you’re heading through a doorway, he has a gift of placing himself in that doorway two seconds before you walk through. Every time. I’m not sure if he does it on purpose or it just happens… Read More Feeling a Little Casual
