White is the New Black

I have a very chic friend who wears exclusively black all fall and winter. You'll know spring has hit because one day she shows up to lunch (or when we worked together, the office) in head-to-toe white. Crisp linen tops. Back-button blouses. Straight-leg jeans. Swingy skirts. Stacked-heel sandals. … [Read more...]

Best of Fall Denim

Anytime someone tries to tear me away from my skinny jeans, I totally freak. That said, there's some fun new denim on the horizon this season that you might just want to test drive.

The fashion … [Read more...]

All Things Chambray

In the fall, I started noticing "denim" popping up in all kinds of unexpected places.  On footwear, in shirts (and not the ugly denim tuxedo kind!), in skirts, on pillows -- and beyond. And then I became educated (fashionably late) on what everybody else knows as chambray. Let's just think … [Read more...]

I Need White Pants!

Ever since Jo-Lynne posted about how to wear black and white on Friday, I’ve had one thing on my mind: White pants. I’ve dipped my toe into dangerous White Pants Territory in the past, to awful results. But the awfulness was of my own doing; I just didn’t buy the RIGHT white pants. FYI: The … [Read more...]
