SCOUTS HONOR

Here & WEAR July 5, 2017 1 Comments
Listen, I got a think for neckerchiefs. I used to think they were just for boy scouts or that plump young fellow in the movie, “Up” which now that I think about it, is indeed a boy scout. Hmm. Turns out you don’t have to be boy NOR a scout to wear fabric tied ’round your neck with any outfit…

NO PROBLEM

Wanna know the secret to look like you’re not trying hard? Don’t. I know! It sounds way too simple to be true. Think about the easiest things to throw on: a big t-shirt, overalls, sneakers. Sure there’s an immense amount I didn’t list off, but guess what, those are the ones that make sense with this post. 3 elements make…

WHITE AND STRIPED

Here & WEAR May 17, 2017 2 Comments
Off-the-shoulder tops are a staple in my closet now. Which is very fitting as it looks like the sleeves were ripped off and later stapled back onto the sides of the shirt. Almost like one of those “third-removed” family members. I guess that’s one way to earn your stripes. [ Tularosa High Waisted Distressed Denim Shorts (similar here) ] […

How do you wear heels without looking too try-hard in the summertime? Easy. Wear a low inch, chunky heel in the midst of a sand dune to be sure you get grains to cover every inch of the shoe’s perimeter that acts as a thin sheet of grit separating your foot which shows how down to earth you really are.…

POWER CHOKER

Do you ever get bored with clothes? I mean, I’d say I do, too, but I try not to lie, so you’re on your own. Still, wearing the same old outfit every time you have a night out can get a little monotonous. These striped trousers will take whatever outfit you’d normally wear and turn it into a (version of…

Off Shoulder Stripes

Here & WEAR November 14, 2016 1 Comments
I have a new found affinity for off-the-shoulder shirts. And by new, I mean since Sandy wore one in the finale carnival scene in Grease. I got preferences, they’re multiplying. The problem with some of them is that you can’t wear them in the daytime because they’re too risqué. Here’s my tip: pair them with sneakers and a necklace to…

Striped Stroll

Tank top and shorts in November? If it’s as effortless as it seems, I’ll take it during any month. The term ‘drawstring shorts’ SOUNDS unappealing, but made of linen and covered with minimal stripes changes the tune. If I had a uniform for errand-running, theme park-going, every day-living, it would be a tank top/shorts/sneaker combo. If it’s too simple to…

Stripe Rope

It’s officially November. Which means we’re already prepping for our guilty holiday eating habits in any way we can- starting with looser fitting clothes. “Fashion rules” say to choose either top or bottom to be loose so you don’t drown in fabrics. I say, “what are fashion rules?” A loose tank and these loose linen pants don’t scream “fashion faux…

No-Try Stripes

If I’ve learned anything of myself this past year, it’s that I love deep things. Deep conversations, deep flavors in a beautiful dinner entree, chips and deep- all of it. The theme stays true with this extremely deep neck romper. It’s an added bonus that you don’t have to try AT ALL with a one pieceN. And with that being…

ARMED WITH STRIPES

There’s lots of different angles in the pieces that make up this outfit, but this angle of thought is my favorite: Wearing a dress doesn’t have to be fancy. This stripe number got casual’d up with a hat, booties instead of heels, and a purse full of snacks. Can you imagine if I actually had something like wine glasses in…
