What I Wore: Subtle Details

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts

My new normal is far more relaxed than a year ago when I worked in an office. I go to the gym, take my daughter to school, run a few errands, and then hunker down at my computer for 6-9 hours. If I do go out, it's usually a fashion or blogger event and the look is less office style and more street style. Many days, my life is in…

Diner en Blanc 2018 DC Nationals Park

What I Wore: Dîner en Blanc DC

Outfit Posts Summer

Dîner en Blanc is a pop-up white dinner party. The concept started 30 years ago and now takes place across six continents.  Attendees bring their own food, tables, chairs, and meet at a secret location for an impromptu posh event of dinner and dancing in a beautiful location.  I think all attendees can agree that this year's Dîner en Blanc DC was not the best.  The venue was a poor…

What I Wore: Gap White Overalls

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.

What I Wore: Families Belong Together Rally and March

Outfit Posts Summer

Saturday was the Families Belong Together Rally and March. At over 750 rallies across the United States, people gathered together to protest the how immigrant families are being detained and separated. No hate, no fear, immigrants belong here. My father's parents came to Ellis Island from a town on the Russia/Poland border; my mom's family is a hybrid of immigrants who arrived on the Mayflower to more recent immigrants who…

What I Wore: Paperbag Waist Pants

Outfit Posts Summer

It's hot out, what to wear when you're not feeling shorts or dresses? Lightweight wide-leg pants are my jam for easy summer dressing. No chub rub, coverage, but still able to catch a breeze. In a print, wide-leg pants hide creases, sweat, and are an optical illusion cor curves. I found these paperbag waist pants at Nordstrom for a very sweet price (on sale for less than $40) and they've…

What I Wore: Talbots Summer 2018

Outfit Posts Spring

When the temps rise, I'm all about easy dressing.  Simple dresses and separates that are cool, comfortable, and versatile yet not boring. Talbots sent me their summer 2018 lookbook a few weeks ago and I loved how it was full of the kind of warm weather clothing I love. I asked them if I could pick a few pieces from the Talbots Summer 2018 collection, wear them, test them, and share…

What I Wore: Trouvé Twist Front Dress

When the temps rise, I love easy dresses I can throw on with sneakers or sandals. When I visited the DC Trunk Club Clubhouse, I requested this in my trunk of picks my stylist gathered.  This twist front dress from Trouvé was exactly what I was looking for and I know it will be one of my summer essentials. Even better, it's under $70! Dress: Trouvé (L) | Shoes: Cole Haan…
