Sizing Up The Situation

Can we talk about women’s clothing sizes for a minute? I’m willing to bet that if you asked 100 women, at least 99 of them would admit to being frustrated by clothing sizes while shopping. I don’t know why it’s so hard for the clothing industry to get sizes right for women, when it appears … Continue reading Sizing Up The Situation

The Best Happy Hours are at Home

I always think that when the weekend arrives, I’ll be ready to put on a cute dress and hit the city.  Occasionally that happens, mostly just on special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries.  Usually, by the time Friday rolls around, I just want to get home, put on some old torn up cut-offs and a … Continue reading The Best Happy Hours are at Home

Burgundy and Blush and an Ann Taylor Addiction

No, this isn't exactly a Wine Wednesday post; it's the colors I've chosen for this week's What To Wear To Work.  I absolutely love how popular blush/light pink has been this year, not only in clothing, but also in home décor.  As I plan out the design of our new home, I've already decided to … Continue reading Burgundy and Blush and an Ann Taylor Addiction

Am I Too Old To Wear A Romper?

I actually Googled this.  I have several rompers in my closet.  I love them because they’re cute and fun and flirty (not to mention comfy).  They do have their downsides (like having to get completely undressed just to pee), but for the most part they are a great summer wardrobe piece.  However, sometimes I worry … Continue reading Am I Too Old To Wear A Romper?

What I’m Wearing to Work This Week: Navy Blue, Olive Green, and Florals

If the title of this post was “What I Wish I Was Wearing This Week,” it would be all about bikinis, cutoffs, and sundresses.  But, the job that provides me with a paycheck insists those aren’t office-appropriate attire, so instead I rounded up 4 office-ready outfits that are summery enough to be comfortable in this … Continue reading What I’m Wearing to Work This Week: Navy Blue, Olive Green, and Florals

Social Commerce In My Closet: Getting the most out of what I don’t wear

A few years ago, I noticed my daughter printing shipping labels and sending packages semi-frequently.  It would seem she had some little business going.  But what on earth could she be doing?  “Selling clothes and shoes and stuff I don’t wear.”  Hmmm.  And how exactly are you doing that?  Poshmark. Poshmark has been around for … Continue reading Social Commerce In My Closet: Getting the most out of what I don’t wear

Casual Summer Evenings: Shoulders, Rompers, and White

I already admitted that I’m not a professional fashion blogger.  And, while I do buy lots of clothes, I am a bargain hunter so I really don’t spend big bucks on the clothing I buy.  I do have some nice handbags and shoes, and some quality pieces for work, but when it comes to clothing … Continue reading Casual Summer Evenings: Shoulders, Rompers, and White

Retail Therapy

I have a serious problem.  And I’m going to admit it right here in front of the world: I’m addicted to shopping! I absolutely love shopping for clothes, shoes, accessories, and beauty products as well as home décor and kitchen gadgets.  In fact, I fully endorse “retail therapy” because I find the simple act of … Continue reading Retail Therapy
