Updating the At Home Capsule Wardrobe

Back in May (which feels like a lifetime ago) I created an at home capsule wardrobe featuring the pieces that were on constant rotation in my closet as I worked and lived at home.  Along with knit t-shirts and joggers, I had what I call a Zoom Blouse, a top…

Staying Cool in the Summer Heat

I can’t think of anything better to wear to stay cool in the summer heat than linen and mesh.  However, such fabrics can look sloppy, and are also known for being transparent. This look I wore for an outdoor socially distant event.  It was a hot evening in July and…

A Zebra Jumpsuit for Fall

Yesterday on the blog, I shared this zebra jumpsuit from Banana Republic, and styled it for summer. No matter what the retailers say, filling their stores with plastic pumpkins and spiced candles, fall is a ways away and it’s okay to embrace the current season.  Summer does NOT end with…
