Adjusting to my new job and new schedule has meant that I haven’t had a lot of free time lately, and am rushing between appointments and tasks more than ever before. So I’ve been doing a LOT of outfits like this one: Black basics with a black and white print or pattern mix. It’s just shy of foolproof but still eye-catching. So if I only have 20 minutes between shower and shift, I’ll head to the boutique in something like this combo. read more

I’ll admit to stealing the idea of pairing sour colors with black and white stripes, but I had fun putting my own twist on the look. This handmade skirt is such fun to wear. Sturdy and a little stiff, but lined with soft silk and in my all-time favorite silhouette! read more
