Feeling Pop Art-ish

Well this was one of my more inventive blog shoots. My photog/creative partner Kristin and I had planned a very ambitious day. After capturing 3 looks, we took a (very) late lunch. And in my opinion, a well-deserved break. But…that meant we ended up “chasing daylight” for my last look. It got dark very fast, so we had to get inventive. Kristin backed her car up, so she could shine her brights at this amazing mural. And we just decided to go for it. I’ll admit the look is different from most of my blog shoots, but we both loved the whole vibe. Hope you do too!

Covid Closet Cleanout

Between family and friends, everyone I know and care about is coming down with Covid or recovering from it. While it’s scary, this wave is nowhere near as terrifying as our world was a year ago — before we all could get vaccinated. Spoiler alert: if you’re Anti-Vax, stop reading now. And I guess, if you want to take it further, stop following me. Because while I’m concerned about becoming infected this time around, I trust the science that’s given us all a weapon against this killer Pandemic. If you’ve hesitated, please, please, please get vaccinated. And if you are vaxed, don’t skip that booster! And if you’re vaxed, boosted and bored, think about a closet cleanout.

Favorites for a Reason

I don’t know about you, but I sat out Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Not Giving Tuesday and that made me feel fabulous! What else makes me feel fab? An outfit of timeless classics shopped straight from my closet. You probably have your own version of these pieces waiting for you to wear them. And if not, I have a few suggestions you might want to check out.

Cozy Does It

This time of year I find myself reaching into my closet or shopping the sales for cozy pieces I can mix and match. A crewneck sweater, especially in a fun design, is an easy and affordable way to add some fashion freshness to your wardrobe…and stay warm. Corduroy pants and a faux fur jacket also make the grade. 

Keep It Casual

This black-and-white look is all about looking pulled together when you’re looking forward to some down time. Full disclosure: I shopped my closet for most of it, but that’s because by sticking to this classic palette, it was fast and easy to style old pieces into a brand new look. Sure, keep it casual. But keep it chic, too.

Statement Tee, Two Ways

In case you missed it, the Statement Tee is making quite the fashion statement. From designer priced to under $10, from rock legends to bucket list destinations to political POVs, the Statement Tee is a quick, chic, and personalized way to update your look. It also happens to be my favorite way to refresh “shop my closet” outfits.

Go Fourth and Be You

Flags, fireworks, frankfurters…however you celebrate, the 4th of July is America’s quintessential summer holiday. And let’s face it, any combination of red, white and blue is one color combo that never gets old. So if you’re looking for a little inspo on how to refresh your summer wardrobe (and maybe a bit of deeper thinking), this post is for you.

Think Warm Thoughts

Thirty one days of holiday hoopla kick off tomorrow, and the true meaning behind what we’re celebrating can easily get lost amidst the shopping, working, wrapping, partying, traveling, stressing. But before that happens, or hopefully doesn’t, let’s take a moment to talk about the fashion phenomenon of faux fur. It’s EVERYWHERE. And for good reason. It’s the best of cozy…without the cruelty. I have to say I truly didn’t want to take this coat off once I had it on. Call me weird, but I’d sleep in it if I could. Or at least sneak a nap!
