What I Wore: CARE at the Embassy of Finland

Outfit Posts Winter

Did you know where the term care package came from? CARE.org created the original care package in 1945 with rations from World War II to help those in Europe devastated by it. Since then, CARE has grown to become a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. CARE places special focus on working alongside poor girls and women because, equipped with the proper resources, they have the power to lift whole…

What I Wore: Shades of Blue

Outfit Posts Winter

When you match the decor, you just HAVE to take some photos! Karl and I checked out Burton's Grill & Bar, a restaurant chain along the Eastern Seaboard. With locations from Massachusetts to North Carolina, this is the first one in Maryland. Not only does it have beautiful decor that beautifully matched with my navy outfit (totally coincidental, it was our first visit), it has a unique menu and cooking…

What I Wore: Bold

Outfit Posts Winter

Who would have thought a bold pink pantsuit would be one of the hardest working pieces in my wardrobe? I bought this suit a year ago without a purpose or a place but just because I loved the color and I love how Banana Republic suiting fits me. I wore it to the rewardStyle conference, wore it to a daytime wedding, to work (together and as separates), have worn each…

What I Wore: Ode to My Favorite Striped Shirt (plus a giveaway!)

Outfit Posts Winter

I love striped shirts. I think that's clear if you scroll through my outfit posts, my capsule wardrobes, and my sale picks. I think striped shirts are classic, work with so many personal styles, and are way more fun than a solid. I'm not ashamed to admit I had an entire dresser drawer filled with striped shirts – each one had a different look, fit, and purpose. Note I said…

What I Wore: Talbots Spring 2018 (and a giveaway!)

Outfit Posts Winter

I've been blogging for 13 years (gasp!) and for most of this time I've been recommending Talbots. At age 29 and a size 10, age 42 and a size 16, and everything in between, I've relied on Talbots to offer quality, consistent sizing, and modern classic style that transcends each season's trends. I've always appreciated their extended size range, and how they're one of the few retailers (and one of…

What I Wore: Gwynnie Bee (and a giveaway!)

Outfit Posts Winter

I have been a member of Gwynnie Bee for over four years and I continue to be one of the company's biggest fans. I love the ability to rent clothing, wear it once or a thousand times, return when I'm over it or even have the ability to purchase it if I fall in love. Gwynnie Bee has also provided the opportunity to try new-to-me brands, silhouettes, colors, and fabrics…
