How did I pack for 10 days in Iceland and London--including casual tourist outfits, outdoor clothing, and professional attire--in only carry-on luggage? In today's post, I am sharing what I took and why I chose these items. This will give you ideas for what to pack for your next trip.
A trench coat is a great travel coat because it protects you from rain, keeps you warm, and is stylish. Features to look for include a hood (many are detachable) and a removable liner so you can make the coat warmer or cooler depending on the weather. A 3-in-1 jacket is a sportier [...]
Coats are second only to dresses when it comes to my favorite articles of clothing. Today I’m showing you two I will be wearing frequently this fall: a dress coat and a down jacket.
As someone who wears a lot of dresses and skirts, I am a big fan of dress coats and wear mine frequently. Dress coats come in a variety of colors from classic neutrals, such as gray, navy blue, black, camel, or ivory, to brighter options, such as pink or royal blue. The latter [...]

Today I'm showing you my recent fall makeover and sharing some tips for makeup application. I don't have much natural talent in this area but have learned some secrets that have greatly improved my skills
I recently discovered this drugstore L’oréal skin primer, which you wear under foundation. It comes in one color, which is great for me because I’m rarely confident enough to feel like I can choose makeup on my own that is going to look good. I use this as a special occasion product because I [...]

Hello, lovelies! Today it is my turn to show you how I will wear the fabulous J. McLaughlin black Lyford top. I’m such a fan of wrap tops! They are flattering on all body shapes, even for people like me who often feel like nothing fits, and they can be easily adjusted for a custom [...]
My consolation when summer is coming to a close is that I get to start wearing my boots again. If you struggle finding either extended calf boots or narrow shaft boots for thin calves, stretch suede is a great option for you. I've also found some cowboy boots (a must for this southern [...]

When I first met Tina, she told me (nicely!) that black was not the most flattering color for me. I gave it up cold turkey and now have less than five items of black, non-athletic clothing. If I wear black anywhere near my face, I break it up with a fabric or accessory in [...]
