I’ve been a waist-highlighter for eons. And although this is probably the mildest version of a drop-waist dress ever created, it’s still outside my comfort zone. But when I saw it on the Gudrun site, I was just smitten and wanted to see if I could make it work. Belting looked wacky, but drawing the eye up with a big stack of necklaces created just the right amount of balance. I bet a scarf would have the same effect. Sometimes it pays to experiment! read more

I avoided the “stars and stripes” cliche and went right for the weather-focused one instead. Couldn’t even help it.

It was a balmy 75 degrees yesterday, but late last week we had this: Sleet, ice, and about 8 inches of snow. And that’s spring in the Midwest for ya. I have grand plans to pile all of my remaining snow-on-the-ground outfits into a marathon Saturday post, but fear that doing so will bring a blizzard upon us. I’ll probably do it anyway. I’m happy to be the scapegoat for this fickle weather. read more
