The Warms Have It! Happy day, reader dearest! If you (like me) are in the Northern Hemisphere, you may be experiencing the winter greys...

Happy day, dear reader! It's official. I am two months into my summer capsule, (and part 2) and 60-ought days into the #100outfits100days challenge. Does that even make any sense? It seemed like a good time for a check-up to take stock of how both of those are going. Capsule I looked in my closet… Continue reading Summer Capsule Update!

You are tired of your summer clothes. Fall fashions are in the stores. Fall outfit inspirations like this one by Kotnourka are in magazines, and on websites everywhere. (Yes, Pinterest, I see you!)
