This thrifted skirt has been a summer favorite for years. I just love the unexpectedly light, bright colors in that tartan and the swishy silk construction. I wore it twice in recent weeks, keeping the same jewelry in both outfits and swapping tops, bags, and shoes. This first was worn on a recent muggy day of meetings and writing at home. And that top is navy, I SWEAR, just like the navy in the skirt. read more

I’ve loved the look of head-to-toe white for summer, but it’s just not a terribly practical dressing formula. Especially for a food-accident-prone owner of two shedding kitties such as myself. I wore this outfit for a recent TV segment about maxi dresses and felt glamorous all day – even got stopped in the parking lot by a gal who said I looked beautiful, bless her heart – but can’t imagine doing it on the regular. I’m a stain magnet already, and wearing white always highlights my talent for splashing salad dressing on my clothes. 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
