Hello, friends. Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway there! Today I’m sharing an outfit I wore for a recent date night with my hubby when we went out to dinner at one of our favorite restaurants. We’ve been together for over 23 years, but I still like to dress a little bit special when we go out. Even if it’s a casual venue, I often wear something I wouldn’t typically wear to church or running around town. I picked up this woven halter top

I’m a sucker for a poncho, and LOFT never disappoints. This flowy Striped Poncho Sweater is cute and cozy, and it has all my favorite fall colors. The second I saw it on the LOFT website, I knew it was begging to be paired with these plum skinny jeans. It’s selling fast, as it is currently marked 40% off.

Last winter when I did my big closet purge, I got rid of two printed shift dresses that were several years old. I had enjoyed wearing them, but bold prints are quite memorable, and it felt like time to pass them on. I figured I’d find something fresh and new this year, and sure enough, I came across this three quarter-sleeve geo print dress at White House Black Market last week. SALE ALERT >> Tops and Pants at
I was thinking the other day that I should recreate some of my fall outfits from last year because they’re still perfectly relevant and in style, and I have a lot of those clothing items still hanging in my closet. Then I realized it made no sense to reinvent the wheel, so I just gathered a bunch of my favorite outfits from last fall here in one post, and voila! 11 “new” fall outfits to copy or adapt with what you have in your closet!

Happy Friday, friends! I wish you could all enjoy this fabulous fall weather we’ve been having here in the northeast. I know not everyone is as fortunate as we are right now, and my thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by Hurricane Matthew. I almost feel guilty enjoying the sunshine and moderate temperatures when I know it is so ugly in other parts of the world right now. Here we’re having the perfect weather for open-toe
I’m often drawn to Free People brand clothing, but they’re usually too boho for my personal style aesthetic. I can never resist trying on their soft, drapey styles, but once I get them to the dressing room, I usually decide they’re not for me. Not so with this Beach Cocoon Cowl Neck Pullover. Free People nailed it for their mainstream audience with the super soft heathered cotton and exposed-seam details with contrast trim. It’s relaxed enough to be comfortable but not so much that you loose
Hello, friends! I have been working like mad trying to finish my post about my trip with Mazda last week, and I need another day to get it exactly how I want it. I hope to get that post up tomorrow or Thursday at the latest! Also, we photographed two new outfits yesterday, so I’ll be sharing those as soon as I get those posts wrapped up. Meanwhile, let’s discuss one of my favorite fall wardrobe pieces — the sweater! For some reason, I’m a
