What I Wore: Silk and Linen

Outfit Posts Spring

For years I shied from linen. I'm already a klutz who often has a dribble of coffee on her shirt, a smear of cream cheese on her cuff. To add wrinkles and creases to my look would just make me look like a slob. If you go through my archives, rarely will you see linen or even 100% cotton. If it can wrinkle, I usually don't even buy it. But…

What I Wore: Bold Floral

Outfit Posts Spring

A fan of both Marimekko and Georgia O'Keeffe, when I saw this ELOQUII red floral jumpsuit I HAD to have it! A little bit Unikko print (which was my bedding for the longest time), a little bit Oriental Poppies, it's bold and cheerful and totally my style. Jumpsuit: c/o ELOQUII (14) | Bracelet: Had forever (budget-friendly option) | Earrings: Jenny Bird | Bag: ALLSAINTS | Shoes: Rothy's | Lipstick: L'Oreal…

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: Universal Standard (plus a giveaway!)

Outfit Posts Winter

Once I was interviewed by a venture capitalist looking to invest in a company I've parntered with on the blog. He wanted to know an honest, unbiased view of the brand and to hear from a long-time customer. I admitted I loved the company, but wish they would switch up their marketing to not only feature young skinny girls. He told me that those over 40 aren't looking to attach…

What I Wore: A Dose of Reality

Outfit Posts Winter

Want to know what is real? What's real is I still haven't done laundry from my weekend getaway to Charleston. What's real was I was super psyched to receive my Gwynnie Bee box so I'd have clean clothing to put on this body and also have cute looks to wear to blogger events I had in the evening this week. What's real is this beret gets a lot of use…

What I Wore: Unique Vintage Floral Dress

Outfit Posts Winter

When I received this dress in my latest Gwynnie Bee box I was so excited. The dress is even more dramatic than it appeared in photos. Also the quality is stellar. No skimping on fabric, this skirt has plenty of volume but strategically placed so it doesn't add bulk. The self belt is two strips attached on either side of the waist so you can easily customize (I wrapped in…
