There is something extra special about dressing up for the holidays. Whether you have a fancy party, a big work event, or you just want to dress up for Christmas Eve service or a New Year’s Eve spent at home, putting on something a bit dressier than… Continue Reading…5 Looks For Holiday Parties
Every year, like many of you, we have family photos taken. And every year, like many of you, I obsess over what to dress my family in for said photos. Okay, maybe obsess is too strong a word, but I do think about it for… Continue Reading…Tips on choosing outfits for your family photos
I was late to the ankle bootie party. When they first came into fashion a few years ago, I thought they were odd looking and I had no idea how to wear them in my regular work-at-home mom life. Last fall, I finally came around and bought… Continue Reading…How to Wear An Ankle Bootie
If I could only dress for one season, I would always and forever choose fall. As much as I love the sun, what I love even more are jeans and layers and boots and sweaters. Since we can all use a few new outfit ideas,… Continue Reading…Seven Favorite Wearable Outfits For Fall (with current sources!)
My friend Julie and I have a joke: every time she texts me with a question, the answer appears on the blog a few days later. So either she asks questions that I’m totally thinking about at the same time OR her question spurs on a blog post… Continue Reading…Doing the half-tuck (how to wear your shirt)
Every summer when the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog came out, my sisters and I would spend hours looking at all the clothes, circling what we hoped for. Then on day-one, my mom and us girls met our aunt, grandma and cousins for a day of… Continue Reading…what I bought at the nordstrom anniversary sale
Summer fashion means light-weight, fresh, easy and casual. I’m a Pacific Northwest girl and our summer temperatures typically max out around the high 80’s, so I switch between jeans (forever my favorite), shorts (not my fave, but I’m learning to embrace them), basic dresses (always an… Continue Reading…eight favorite outfits for summer
So, we’re headed to the beach. The beautiful, gorgeous hawaiian island sands of Maui. I can’t wait. In prepping for this vacation, I’ve been searching high and low for favorites to wear on the beach and in the water. Here are a handful of my… Continue Reading…what to wear: swim + beachwear
We’re mid-holiday party season which means us ladies get to figure out what to wear. Festive, but comfortable, pretty and classic. At least that’s what I prefer when choosing party outfits. This season, I’m all about skirts. I love the look of a full skirt,… Continue Reading…12 great holiday skirts
Tis the season for family photos. If I could, I would have photos taken every couple of months. But, alas, I live in reality and not only could I not afford it, my kids would probably go crazy if I forced them into outfits and… Continue Reading…what we’re wearing (family photos 2014)
Fall is my favorite. For many reasons – changing leaves, football season, apple crisp – but right at the top is fall fashion. Sweaters. Boots. Jeans. Cozy.
I feel best wearing clothes that cover up this pale skin (shorts are not my favorite) and love dressing in layers. I live in the Seattle area where we have cooler weather (it’s been in the high 60’s this week), with likely drizzling rain on one day and crisp clear skies the next.
Since we can all use a few new outfit ideas, I’ve put together six of my favorite looks for fall. And BONUS! most items are recent purchases and not crazy-expensive. All items that are available are linked to the sourceContinue Reading…six favorite looks for fall
This is the outfit I wore yesterday:
It’s still warm outside (in the low 70’s) and so I’m still dressing summery-ish with short sleeves and cropped jeans and flats. The white shirt I put on (a cute hand-me-down from my sister – originally from jcrew) got me thinking about how it was supposed to be the final day of wearing white until spring. You know the old rule: no white after Labor Day. So I did a few seconds of research and discovered that it was a fashion tradition stemmed from class divisions in the early 1900’s (here’s a quick article from time magazine).
Turns out, rules are meant to be broken (especially silly ones like this) and while white linen and gauzy silk may not be the best choices for cooler weather, wearing white during the fall and winter is not only okay, it’s also very stylish.Continue Reading…break the rules: six white pieces to wear this fall
Since the day she was born, I have loved dressing my girl. I like classic styles, easy and comfortable with a little bit of color and pattern thrown in for fun. It’s how I dress myself and what I gravitate to when shopping for Audrey.
My baby is now four, and sometimes she has an opinion on what she’d like to wear, but mostly not. I know. It won’t last long. So for now, I’m running with it.
There’s a thing in blogland called What I Wore – where you photograph your outfits and share them online. It’s weird. And feels super awkward. I’m not a fashion blogger, don’t wear designer clothes or even know how to pronounce half the brands anyway, but… Continue Reading…what I wore this week
