Game On For Fall

The transition to fall clothing and accessories has begun, albeit slowly, due to the record-breaking temps we’ve been experiencing around here lately. Very difficult to get all layered up when it’s 90-degrees outside. I decided to go slowly into the season by incorporating two easy fall trends that wouldn’t leave me feeling like I was suffocating – leather booties and a bordeaux-fringed crossbody bag. When the weather turns cooler, which could be any time, the addition of tights and a moto jacket will keep this look in the game all season long. Equipment Blouse / Club Monaco Shorts (On sale!)...

Peaches & Cream

Off to the city, my city, for the long weekend. And let me tell you, it is hot here in the Midwest! Fall? Nowhere in sight, which is why today’s look will definitely be in the suitcase.

The put-together power suit has reemerged and it looks better than ever. I’m loving this refreshed version from J.Crew’s Italian stretch wool collection for its simplicity and easy elegance.  Its clean lines and modern silhouette have me wondering how I ever could have turned my back on this closet staple....

Almost Home

I’ve been traveling a fair amount this summer and have yet to really settle in to my new home. When I finally arrived back at the house last week I had to familiarize myself yet again with all its little nuances. One of my favorite things about the house is the enclosed sunroom. Talk about a room with a view! It looks out onto a beautiful lush garden of wildflowers and greenery. Honestly, it’s just a magical place that – no matter the day I’m having – never fails to put a smile on my face. Kudos to the...

Playing Favorites

End of summer dressing can sometimes start to feel a bit monotonous. Instead of buying something new, my trick at this late date is to shop my closet. Fortunately, I’ve accumulated a pretty vast wardrobe of classic pieces that have honestly stood the test of time. This skirt and top are among my all-time favorites. Clean lines, simple silhouette, a perfect go-to look for this time of year.
