This week we have a guest blogger! Katherine Clonts, of Being Here, Getting There (beingheregettingthere.blogspot.com/), will be joining us to give us not only a taste of her blog, but also some of her favorite outfits, her thoughts on them, and how/where she got them. Her pictures are amazing! Cannot […]
Tucked in cardigan. Alternating wide & small stripes. Exposed gold zipper. Pencil skirt. Lauren’s got this professional look down. She also got us donuts… Seriously, though- what a great alternative for a blouse during this next season? A sweater will definitely keep you warm, and one with a collar cut like Lauren’s will […]
It’s that time of year again, and thankfully we have people like McKenzie to show us how to wear boots in the sometimes awkward in-between weather that takes place in the transition of summer to fall. How do you dress for 40 degrees in the morning, but 80′s in the […]
The high waisted everything has made a come back. And I absolutely love it. Why? Because the high waist makes such a great silhouette. You can wear it form-fittingly, in a pencil skirt or skinny jeans, or like this, with the A-line shaping the skirt. True, not all of these […]
This is the first of a new series on young professionals highlighting unique ways to dress for the office while pushing the limits on classic cuts, colors, and textures. I spotted Brin in one of the best outfits I have ever seen her wear the other day. Her ruffled white […]
Neutrals are in. Big time. Have I mentioned that yet? Gabrielle gets it- hence the dark brown leather jacket and dark tan pumps with the wood heel. This rich color in the shoe is a great alternative for the nude colored heel you are seeing in most every store now […]
On a dreary day, I looked up and saw Bonny Jean walking my way with her bright smile and colors to match. I love this bold pairing- the aqua, fuchsia, and blue you might never put together, but with all of them equally bright, and with her white button down […]
It is difficult to wear an apron and still look gorgeous. Thankfully, we have Claire, of the former coffee/tea shop Cups & Mugs, to show us working girls how to work it. As she prepared my pour-over coffee for me, she danced around in that handmade apron, sewn by women […]
Sometimes we are inspired by a piece that is out of the ordinary. When Brenna woke up this day, she decided it was a kind of day that needed bright red lipstick. That red then inspired the rest of her outfit- complementing it with the small red/white polka dots, the […]
Ross & Jordan emailed me last night with these pictures. They were so proud of their thrifting treasures they had found. Ross’ sport jacket he got for $2.50, and Jordan’s dress she found for $8. Both are classic pieces that they can wear for a long time to come, and […]
Bonny Jean wears clothes with such ease and grace, no matter if it’s a large sweater and tights, or if it’s a perfectly proportioned dress with a bodice. This dress was her grandmother’s. From Switzerland. That is simply the quaintest. It has the curves built into it to give her […]
Autumn is here, and with it, earthy tones and free-flowing fabrics. Hannah’s tall, light brown boots are perfectly complemented by her above the knee dress/shirt, and her carefree look is made complete by her floral fabric headpiece.
WHY THIS WORKS: proportions. Her short sleeves and small shorts balance each other out. Her white shirt/denim shorts are neutral, which highlight the brightly colored/patterned/tasseled scarf. Moral of this [scarf] story: only wear tassels when they are balanced with neutrals. And small.
Kim has the most delicate sensibilities when it comes to fabric and style. Even on this dreary day, she had donned a thin, simple white tank with a loose, but still light denim button down. All neutrals (even the shoes are a very muted red, which turns neutral), and then […]
Kate once again shows us her bold style with this tutu that she pairs so well with a plain black tee. This beautiful balance of textures (cotton tee & sparkling tulle) is so refreshing, and the perfect way to wear a unique and dramatic texture like tulle.
Trousers are the mark of a gentleman. In the same way, watches can make a men’s ensemble- look at how Wes sports both here. As I photographed him, I happened to notice the watch he was wearing, and asked him about it. He said that it was actually his mother’s […]
Harley always wears such beautifully proportioned colors, but when I saw this denim piece I knew I had to photograph her. She then began to tell me about how she had just cut her bangs, and I think they are the finishing touch on this wonderful little fall ensemble. WHY […]
Look who called each other up that morning while they were dressing! Not really-Emma’s headband is sequined pink, and Sydney’s shirt is sequined silver. They also happen to be wearing almost the same colors. So maybe they really did coordinate… WHY THIS WORKS: Sequins don’t always work, but here they […]
Rachel shows us how to wear a thin scarf as a headband…and carry coffee, dinner, and books all at once! I think she thought I was ridiculous as I snapped photo after photo of her, trying get a good angle of the scarf. (Note the face in the bottom left […]
