Easy Holiday Outfits For Every Event

December 9th, 2021 by

We are two weeks out from Christmas, and I have to admit I’m drowning. Between a December birthday (Eva turns 14 on the 12th), wrapping up a semester, and all the usual shenanigans in a house with two teen girls, I’m not feeling at the top of my game. That’s one of the reasons I […]

The BEST Gifts for Everyone On Your List! (And For Every Budget!)

December 6th, 2021 by

I adore gift-giving, the whole art and anticipation and drama of it, but let’s face it, some people make going to the store a bore. And yes, I’m talking about dads and husbands and the other impossible-to-shop-for people on your list. Sure, pajamas and ties are standbys, but what if you want something with a […]

Gifts to Buy Yourself

November 29th, 2021 by

As a stylist, finding new items for my wardrobe while shopping for others is an occupational hazard. I mean, if I’m shopping for a client, and happen to come across an item or twelve for myself, that’s just God’s way of telling me I need something new. I have the same philosophy when it comes […]

Easy Holiday Style Over 40

November 22nd, 2021 by

There are two extremes when it comes to holiday style. The SnowGlobe and the Scrooge. (I’m working on better names… suggestions welcome!). The Scrooge glides through the holidays in their regular clothes, without even a hint of holiday headband or festive scarf, while the Snowglobe dons Christmas sweaters in October and stops just short of […]

It’s the little things, you know, especially this time of year. Whether it’s a carefully chosen hostess gift or a specially selected stocking stuffer, these thoughtful surprises are my favorite kind of gift to give, and to receive.

The Best Gifts for Impossible Men

December 5th, 2017 by

I am already bored. I’ll admit it. I hate shopping for men. And I don’t mean to sound all negative or anything, but I stink at it. Or maybe, my husband stinks at gift-receiving because he is impossible. To shop for, I mean. Otherwise he’s cute and thoughtful and stuff. I love him, so I […]
