This is the outfit I reach for when it’s cold outside, I have 10 minutes to get dressed, and I want to look casual but pulled-together. I’ve worn it so many times that I had to replace the old striped Target tunic I’d been using for the past two years because the black stripes had started to fade into the white ones, giving the garment a gray and grungy cast. This new garment is called a dress, but it’s definitely more of a tunic on me! Paired with my metallic sheen leggings and foolproof printed scarf, it’s a longtime standby. read more

Last year, I bought a striped “dress” from Target that turned out to be more of a tunic. I wore it and washed it so often that the black stripes began to fuzz their way into the white ones. It looks fine from afar, less fine up close. So I nabbed this striped dress – an actual dress – as a replacement. I expected it to be flimsy, clingy jersey, but it’s surprisingly thick and sturdy. Still drapes beautifully, though, and is bound to become a year-round favorite. read more

I’m late to the pattern mixing party, I know. Still playing around with this technique, but definitely intrigued. Especially because it’s so far from what I’ve known traditionally: Ten years ago doing stripes and florals would’ve been blasphemy. Some still think it is, but I can safely say that my eye has adjusted. read more
