I’ve never worn white as much as I have this year and now I think I’m hooked. This applies to my weekend wear and my work wardrobe. I’ve probably worn white the most to the office and that’s pretty strange since my work day isn’t spent behind a desk. I spend most of my day around town meeting new people and telling stories that matter to the community. Sometimes that may take me to some strange places and let’s just say my all white look wouldn’t last long. Seriously, I would be a dirt ball before I make it back to the car. For instance , I spent al day Wednesday chasing house fires along side the fire department (arson). Glad I didn’t wear white . I have a stories like this one, believe me. But this summer, I went against my better judgement several times and wore all white to work. Check out the five times I dressed in all white everything and managed to stay clean. Continue Reading »

You ever see a trend and said, “Oh that’s cute, but it’s not for me.” It happened to me maybe a year ago when culotte jumpsuits came on the scene. I saw a cute jumpsuit on Forever21.com , but when I went to the actual store to try it on, I was over it. I hated the fit on me. The jumpsuit was super cute, but not on me. So I figured this trend wasn’t for me. Now, fast forward to August of this year I’m perusing the clearance rack at Target and the cutest little jumpsuit starts to peek through. Continue Reading »

Matchy- Matchy is typically a fashion no-no, but Co-ords are still trending, big time.  I’ll be honest, I was a little afraid of  taking on this trend because you run the risk of looking like everyone else. Plus, it’s a bold move to wear a head-to-toe print, but some how I convinced myself to take on the trend and I’ve saying yes to matchy-matchy prints ever since. The print I find myself flirting with in a major way is pretty florals.  Continue Reading »
