I haven't had much luck with Old Navy as of late. A lot of their dresses are strangely high waisted (not empire, and they aren't petites yet they are up near my ribcage), and some of the quality has been even worse than I am used to with the brand. However, they had a promotion last week and I figured while I filled up my online shopping cart with skirts and tanks for Emerson, I'd try something for myself. And this blouse? Quite pleased. Nice feel, cute print, flattering style (wore it untucked with jeans last night yet tucks in well too). I'd say this is a win, and I hope a sign of the future for Old Navy!
I did not want to like them. No, no siree, newp, nah, I didn’t want to like them. A little over a year ago, Margaux Shoes reached out to me about a possible partnership. I haven’t had luck partnering with shoe brands. I have difficult feet – they are high volume, wide, and I have… Continue Reading Margaux Shoes Review: The Uptown Sandal
Karl hates Christmas. I don’t know if it’s because his mom passed away soon after the holiday and it reminds him of it, because he despises the consumerism, or because he gets sick every Christmas Eve. Seriously, every Christmas Karl has a cold and it is a bummer for everyone. Earlier this year we went… Continue Reading A Very Un-Pinterest Christmas

Sweaters with trousers to the office, with jeans on the weekends, with leggings and yoga pants at… Continue Reading Sunshine on a Rainy Day: The Best Striped Sweaters
I always love Talbots’ Spring New Arrivals. The pretty florals, the crisp chinos, the wearable dresses, the smart footwear, the accessories that are pretty but always with a little something that makes them fun. I was scrolling through Talbots’ March New Arrivals for spring and so many things caught my eye I had to share… Continue Reading Talbots Spring New Arrivals: My Picks
I know, I know I am not supposed to be shopping. I lost a lot of money in Raleigh last month. But I’ve been Poshmarking, I paid my taxes (got an extension), and I looked at the finances and felt I could get a couple things to complete my fall/winter wardrobe and prepare for some… Continue Reading Recent Purchases, Hits and Misses
Emerson tugs on me. She tugs on my shirttails, the hems of my skirts, my crossbody bags. “Emerson, tug on my hand, not my clothes,” I tell her. “If you tug too hard you may break it.” And sure enough, recently she took a tug on my Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.C. and the leather loop… Continue Reading Making A Wardrobe Work For You
