The outfits I feel most “me” in always involve pieces that I turn to season after season. This leopard blouse is one that I’ve had for years, and despite many closet clean-out sessions, it has made the cut every time. When it’s a print you love in a fit that’s flattering … well, you just don’t give it up that easily.
What pieces in your closet make you feel like “you”?

This time of year is the most difficult in terms of loving my closet. I’m ready for spring and lighter layers, but the reality is that it’s still very much winter outside. So when I’m dressing during this transitional season, I’m sticking to what I love most: neutrals and textures. How do you make the most of your closet during this transition from winter to spring?
It’s officially time to begin wishing for spring. Of course, this blazer only encourages my dreams of slightly warmer weather, leaves on the trees and flowers blooming. Oh, and this necklace? it was a happy accident. I bought it for Liz for Christmas, but it wasn’t quite the color she wanted. I decided to keep it for spring, and I’m glad I did!
Happy, happy weekend! On my agenda: a good, old-fashioned closet clean-out and some spring cleaning.

I’d been saving my mint and pink sweaters for March and April and wanted to make the most of the darker side of my wardrobe. But that resolution went out the window this weekend; although the temps were still chilly, the sunshine made me crave spring. The mint sweater gave me the perfect opportunity to try out some spring makeup (bold pink lips included).
Last night, Liz and I went to see The Book Thief … and let me just say, bring the tissues when you see it (and you need to see it). A good reminder of the power of stories and books!
My job allows me to telecommute, and while I’m almost always working from home most mornings, I get cabin fever after lunch and usually head out to a local coffee shop to spend the afternoon working. When I head out the door, my bag is heavy because I need to bring whatever I might possibly need for both work and personal use.
For work: my laptop, Kindle (so much easier than carrying the 50,000 novels I need for work), my iPhone/charger and business card holder.
For personal use: PocketBac, lotion, mattifying powder/brush, mirror, stain remover, wallet and (duh) multiple lipsticks/lip glosses/chapsticks.
