I’m beginning to sound like a broken record – I know. But my chambray button down just might be the most versatile item in my closet. I reach for it time and time again. So as a follow up to my previous post, Five Ways to Wear Chambray, I’m bringing you five more ways to wear everyone’s favorite top (or maybe just my favorite). And if you’re sick of me pushing my chambray obsession on you, feel free to sub out these ideas with your favorite oxford of printed button down. It still works! (more…)
I’ll admit it: I’m one of those people who absolutely rejoices once the holiday season comes around. It was always a big deal around my house growing up, so decorating, listening to Christmas music, and cooking up a storm are the highlight of my year. Unfortunately, being married to a man who works retail puts a little damper on my celebration. His busiest time of the year often leaves me to all the Christmas plans on my own; however, I have made it a point to have a few holiday traditions that the two of us can share together.
I remember the first time I heard that whole “animal print is a neutral” thing. I’m pretty sure I laughed it off, thinking that it would never be my fashion mantra. And maybe I’m still not 100% on board with it (because I’m not sure it always works), but I am embracing it a whole lot more than I used to. Earlier this week I was mixing stripes, floral and leopard. Today, it’s all about leopard and plaid together.
Ever have one of those quick throw-on outfits that you put together last minute and end up loving? That’s what this was to me… Until I hit the right light (half way through the day, mind you) and realized that a little extra coverage probably would have been ideal. Oops. (more…)
It is hard to believe that one holiday has already passed us by, isn’t it? That four-day weekend was much-needed. I did my best to avoid the stores even though it was the official kick-off of the holiday shopping season. Instead I did a little online shopping and spent time with friends. I even accomplished a little holiday decorating!
