This Week I Love …

… the abundance of high-rise styles currently on the market.

I know high rises aren’t for everyone. Low and even mid rises hit me at exactly the wrong spot and make me unspeakably miserable, and depending on how you’re built high rises may do the same for you. But they’re the ONLY style of jeans and pants I can wear, and I’m thrilled to see a variety of washes, sizes, and styles available right now.

Here are a few styles and brands I love:

I’ve gone a little bonkers for fringe, and this T Party company is much to blame. They make lots of fringed pieces, all from super soft jersey. The fringed yoga pants aren’t quite my scene, but I adore my jacket and got this asymmetric fringed skirt, too. Someday I might wear them together just to freak out Husband Mike. read more

I made a promise to myself to avoid open necklines and dress warmer this winter. I adore the look of scoops and v’s and can’t seem to resist them occasionally, but I am SO much happier in several layers and a nice, big scarf. If my neck is cold, my everything is cold. This geometric pattern scarf is large and thin – just how I like ’em – and I love that it has bold shapes in a totally neutral palette. read more
