This Season’s Must-Have Cap

I must admit I wasn’t sold on this season’s it hat until I saw the beautiful Amy Ann from Straight A Style Blog sporting one in a recent post. She looked so darn cute in her Fiddler’s Cap that I decided I, too, would jump into the water and give this style a try. What do you think? Does it work as well on me? Did I make the right decision in buying it?  The hat is more fun than I thought, and is actually quite warm.  This one is also very reasonable – just $42, and comes in other...

The Beret

Jewel-tones and classic black berets have shown up in several of Michele’s collections, adding an extra dash of visual interest that is fun, fresh and modern. The iconic beret, with its rich history and symbolic cultural ties, looks to be a strong statement-maker as we head into spring. Mine is wool felt, an archived classic, but this of-the-moment accessory can also be found in crocheted cotton, hand-knitted wool and even straw. It’s a great accessory...

Sweater Dressing

Happy Friday, everyone. Any big plans for the weekend? I’m heading to a holiday party tonight and thanks to the little grey lace-embellished sweaterdress I’m wearing in today’s post I know exactly what I’ll be wearing. I spotted it recently on Shopbop and thought it would be a nice change from my typical LBD. For someone like me, who lives in sweaters, sweater-dressing is nothing new. Whether I’m pairing a sweater with jeans or a gorgeous statement skirt, this wardrobe staple is very much a part of my style aesthetic. The black lace embellishment adds a modern twist to an...

The Cocoon Coat

Good morning and happy Monday, everyone! The big chill arrived yesterday on the heels of our 70-plus degree weather on Saturday. Crazy, right, but it  comes with the territory here in the Midwest where the weather is ever-changing. Sunday’s chill made it the perfect time to pull out my new cocoon coat. I picked it up at Banana Republic (here) recently and absolutely love the chic factor of this coat. Its egg-shaped silhouette has always been one of my favorites, a true classic. I styled it with black denim and heels, but this coat is so versatile I know...
