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…

What I Wore: A Vintage Dress

Outfit Posts Summer

I love wearing vintage. I dig the cool prints, the quality fabrics, the unique silhouettes.  However, vintage is harder to find once you hit double digits in dress sizes. Whether it's a vintage clothing boutique or my local thrift store, pickings get slimmer the larger you are. I've had the most luck finding larger size vintage at Etsy.

Real Life Capsule Wardrobe: The Ivory Blazer

Capsule Wardrobes Outfit Posts Spring

Real Life Capsule Wardrobe: The Accent Piece

Capsule Wardrobes Outfit Posts Spring

Capsule wardrobes are often associated with minimalism, but that doesn't mean the pieces within the capsule need to have minimal style.  In fact, when your capsule wardrobe has unique details and accent pieces, it not only is more fun to wear, but more stylish and versatile.  In the real life capsule wardrobe I featured yesterday, the primary accent piece was the one-shouldered cashmere sweater from Universal Standard. black sweater |…
