What I Wore: Gap White Overalls

Outfit Posts Summer

You all saw these overalls on the blog when I wore them to the Families Belong Together rally and march in DC the other weekend. If you know me in real life you know I wear these overalls on a pretty regular basis. After a day of running around town, accomplishing tasks and completing errands Karl captured these photos of me in a pretty typical summer day outfit. Overalls: Gap (LP)…

Shopping Hits and Misses: Shorts Edition

Fashion Advice

Shorts are one of the hardest things to shop for. Outside of bathing suits, shorts can have you over-examining your body with cuts, lengths, and shapes that can accentuate that which you don't love and minimize the good. Many women choose to never wear shorts and I get it and respect that decision. I didn't wear shorts for many years. However, once I turned 40 I decided to wear them…

Shopping Hits and Misses: Shorts Edition

Fashion Advice

UGH SHORTS, amirite? They’re rarely flattering, they ride up, they bag, bunch, gape, bind. They seem to highlight the worst parts of a figure.

Recent Fashion Purchases – Hits and Misses

personal style

I’ve done a bit of shopping the past couple of months. My wardrobe was woefully unprepared for the cold; I don’t know what I was wearing up until February last year because this year I just laugh at my thin cardigans and distressed jeans and crave more wool, more fleece, more layers. In the DC area, it doesn’t really get cold until after Christmas and I did end up spending…
