The White Dress of Summer

I love a simple white dress that’s easy to slip on for any occasion during the summer. It’s a fresh look that can be worn so many ways, it ends up being a smart purchase because it helps utilize other items in your closet to be worn with it. I had a white dress with […] Read more…

Flattering Summer Sunglasses

I absolutely believe in buying quality items and keeping them for a long time, but when it comes to sunglasses I normally go “middle of the road” price and quality that I normally keep for a few years. I think someday I may invest more into a pair of sunglasses, but I change out what […] Read more…

Gingham

Pick up any style magazine and you’ll see that gingham is the trend of spring/summer for 2015, but we already knew that because we’ve been wearing it for years and will continue to even long after the fast paced fashion world has moved on.

Four Season Classics

When it comes to investing in certain items, it’s important to choose pieces that fit well and can be worn often. I live in a state where we experience all four seasons, and there are a certain […] Read more…

Layering Inspiration

This feeling comes around this time every year where winter has lingered on for what feels like forever, yet there are no signs of spring for a few more weeks. With that, can come a serious lack of inspiration in creating different outfits and I find myself getting into a rut of wearing the same […] Read more…

How to Style a Baseball Cap

Today I’m teaming up with Abby from Belle of the Ball to show you how we style baseball hats. Nothing is more American than a baseball hat, whose origins began in Brooklyn in the 1860s. While its popularity stems from the sport of baseball, the hats are as versatile as ever. Even big brands, such […] Read more…

The Vintage Skirt Suit

photo via NY Post I love everything about skirt suits, but they are hard to find today outside of super professional ones. They’re so ladylike and emulate the sophistication that women, such as Jacki Onassis Kennedy, wore in the 1960’s. My husband gave me a vintage wool skirt suit for Christmas and needless to say […] Read more…
