Only open a few months, this new hotel is gorgeous, luxe yet warm, and has everything for a perfect little getaway or if you've visiting the area for an event.

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: Tour of Good Housekeeping with Jambu [Sponsored]

Outfit Posts Spring

This is the same pink blazer from this blog post; I saw these pants on clearance at Banana Republic and thought they'd be great to wear with striped tees, silk blouses, denim jackets, and more. I was…

Where to buy jeans when you’re short and plus size?

Fashion Advice Plus Size Fashion

I hope you can take a few minutes to answer a question about jeans. I used to wear NYDJ in an 18WP (women's petite). NYDJ has stopped making WP-size denim. I've tried other brands and haven't found any that fit well. I'm 5'4 1/2″ and weigh about 200 pounds.  I have a short rise, so plus size in a short length droop horribly in the crotch, even with a belt.…

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…
