Getting the most wear out of your clothes is something that everyone can appreciate. Whether you have a favorite top that you wear all year round, or a dress that easily takes you from work to drinks, we tend to gravitate toward clothes that we can wear in a myriad of ways. Continue Reading

Camp, Bells, and a Rainbow….

August 6, 2019

Are you petite? Tall? Curvy? Thin? No matter your body shape (which is perfect just the way it is,) it can be difficult for any woman to find correctly-fitting pieces off the rack at your favorite stores. One of the easiest ways to combat the shopping struggle is to be friends with your body and know what she needs to feel great. Do you love your long legs? Maybe you have great shoulders! Choose the parts of your body that you want to highlight, and understand what kinds of garments compliment your frame. If you’re petite like me, shopping for proportional pieces can be a struggle. Over time I’ve come to love my favorite stores that cater to body types like mine, and I’ve also accumulated some tricks of the trade to make me look as long and lean as possible (despite needing help to reach the top shelf.)

Has anyone else here been bitten by the travel bug recently? A persistent feeling of wanting to jump on a plane and fly to a favorite vacation spot? I’m betting that many of you have summer trips planned already, and if you don’t, you’ve been keeping your eye on a good flight deal. The minute I book my ticket for any holiday, I’ve planned out my vacay outfits in my head or have shopping lists mentally drawn to be crossed off within the next day or two. But what about that first day of travel? That’s just as much part of your trip as any of the other days. This first day look is often an afterthought for many travelers, though it’s equally as important as the rest of your holiday attire. The trick to creating savvy travel looks is to prioritize comfort and style equally. When you hold these two elements of your outfit to equal standards, you won’t even need to change between your landing gate and the hotel bar. Continue Reading
