OOTD: Preppy and Plaid

Every once in a while, I’ll spot something for sale that, at the moment- might not make much sense to buy right then and there- be it the time of year, the weather, etc., but something in the back of my mind tells me that said impulse purchase will most definitely find it’s place and […]

OOTD: Wild Wild West

Even I have to admit that I do find it a little amusing that I officially kicked off my vacation this past weekend by riding out an unpredictable hurricane/tropical storm from home- it’s pretty much on brand for me and the timing of my life, really- but this morning I’m hopefully going to be boarding […]

OOTD: The Cold Shoulder

What do you wear when you have lakeside plans on a partly cloudy New England afternoon in August but need to find a comfortable middle ground between a super low-key swimsuit and a slightly-more-formal sundress?

Traffic is almost always terrible, parking fees are […]

OOTD: Patriotic Pin-Up

My style and fashion sense has always been sort of a mixed bag, and I draw inspiration from all sorts of trends- past and present- eras, decades and icons. Part of the reason is the seasonal changes here in New England. I might dress like a boho-inspired beach bunny in the Summertime, but come Fall […]

A Few of My Favorite Things: June 2021

Summertime is well underway, and as we prepare for an impending heat wave in the Northeast this week and upcoming Fourth of July plans this coming weekend- I wanted to take some time (while sitting in front of my air conditioner, of course) to talk about some of the products, items and miscellaneous odds and […]
