Cozy Business Casual

I feel like sometimes dressing in business casual can be hard. Particularly when the only real rules in your employee handbook are “no jeans” and “no shorts.” Fortunately, I’ve found myself a bit of a recipe for looking good at work and still being comfortable. A well tailored pair of pants (or skirt… I love…

Fashion Friday – A Classy Diaper Bag

I have a big thing about carrying a classy looking purse.  I want my bags to be leather (or vegan leather) with no pattern.  Don’t get me wrong, I went thru a Vera Bradley phase back in the day, but I find that a nice leather bag with clean lines in a good neutral can…

It doesn’t matter what season it is, I love to layer my clothes. But with the ridiculously cold weather we’ve been having here lately, being able to have on multiple layers of clothes has been the only thing to keep me from freezing to death. I’ve even been double layering coats! And since I never…

Winter Wear

With the Polar Vortex heading south, things are going to get pretty chilly here this week. And with the cold weather, I start thinking about layering clothes. Particularly what jackets and coats will work well with my clothes. Having a good work coat in my closet is always important to me. The first nice coat…

Adding to the Stash

This weekend, a family friend was nice enough to give me some of her mom’s old sewing stash. I had so much fun going through everything. Check out these amazing fabrics. I’m especially in love with the wool in the center. It might make a great coat or a fun bag. And there were also…
