I wore this for a recent segment on the Fox 9 Buzz. Topic was nautical. This was about as close as I could get. My wardrobe has plenty of preppy staples but I’ve only been on boats a few times and ended up seasick at least half of those, so I’ve never been drawn to rope and anchor and boat motifs. I don’t even like the beach all that much. But I loved the way this palette worked with the rich browns of the accessories and the fun pop of mustard yellow from the bag. read more

I’ve worn this blazer and dress together before, but am almost certain the combo never made it onto the blog. It brings me so much joy when an item I’ve had for ages (long-ago thrifted blazer) turns out to be a perfect color match for a newer item (year-old dress). I feel like my clothes have found their life partners when this happens. Because I’m a goof like that. read more

So my coral Old Navy dress from last year came down with a bad case of the Wonky Hemline after a few washings, and I bought this one at a discount to replace it. It’s a little more on the glowy orange side than I expected, but I can work with that, too. Though I’ll probably temper it with other colors when I wear it so as not to be mistaken for a traffic cone. read more
