Fall Fashion Haul Over 40

November 20th, 2020 by

Plus: Cluster Concept at Work I’m going to make a quick attempt at a mathematical formula here. Wardrobe Essentials + Seasonal Updates = A Beautiful Wardrobe Only I could come up with an equation that doesn’t contain numbers. It’s a gift. 🙂 If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know that I created […]

What to Wear to Go Back to Work

June 29th, 2016 by

(Disclaimer: Don’t hate me for saying “work.” I know that we all work. Wherever you are and whatever you do for work, it is still work. But “work” is easier to say than “working outside the home at a paying job that requires you to dress up a bit.”) If you’ve spent the last few […]

How to Dress Cute While Pregnant (on a Budget!)

June 26th, 2016 by

If you’re reading this, I’m a little jealous of you right now. I hope you know how truly blessed you are… I loved every single second of being pregnant. Every. Single. Second. I was deliriously happy. I never got nauseous.  think it was God’s way of giving me a break after 6 stressful years of fertility […]

How to Rock a Transitional Wardrobe

June 23rd, 2016 by

Okay, I’ll admit it. Transitional Wardrobes, and, frankly, capsule wardrobes of any kind can be a little, yawn…. especially for creative, spontaneous, former-impulse-shoppers like myself. If, like me, you’ve never met a frill or a bauble you didn’t adore, then the idea of the same 28 outfit combinations on repeat for 6 months can sound like […]

What to Wear During a Weight Gain (or Loss!)

June 22nd, 2016 by

I hear you. Transitions are tough. Tricky. Traumatic even. (Sorry—I never miss a chance to alliterate!). They are confidence killers. And that’s what stinks. During a time when you could use a boost of confidence the most, a wardrobe that no longer fits or suits your lifestyle has the exact opposite effect. It is deflating. […]

Nothing to Wear Week: Build a Capsule Wardrobe

March 23rd, 2015 by

  I came across a great article in Who What Wear in which Michael Kors said that the reason most women don’t have anything to wear is because they have a  wardrobe that is out of balance. I’ll allow him to explain: “70 percent of the clothes you own should be meat and potatoes. 30 […]

Clean Out Your Closet in 1 Hour: 30 Days to Gorgeous Mom Style

January 12th, 2015 by

I get it all the time. “I’m afraid for you to see my closet.” People who say this have clearly never seen mine. They are under the misconception that, as a stylist and an overhauler of other people’s closets, mine is perfect. It is not. Sift through the clothing in my closet, and you will […]

Capsule Wardrobe Essentials: The T-Shirt

July 7th, 2013 by

Looks can be deceiving. Sure, a t-shirt can seem basic, but its everyday appearance belies its wardrobe transforming abilities. In other words, it can do a lot to make you look cute. And just because a t-shirt is simple, doesn’t mean it’s easy. Finding the right t-shirt can be a challenge. Fortunately, I’ve rounded up […]
