My uniform

Merino leopard cardigan:  J.Crew Factory, winter 2010, similar here
Victoria cami:  J.Crew, spring 2008, similar here
Striped lightweight wool pencil skirt:  Banana Republic, here
Cap toe pumps:  Tahari, similar flats here
So I've noticed lately that I seem to have a uniform of sorts that I tend to fall back on quite often. A pencil skirt, a cardigan, and a ruffled top seem to be my standby.  Which is fine as long as the uniform doesn't morph into a rut.  I do adore dresses and wear them a lot, the only challenge there is that dresses are more difficult to remix, at least for me.  I need to get more creative I suppose!

Doesn't it seem like every single season the fashion experts and magazines claim that "animal print is in"?  My question is, when is it not?  I think no matter what year or season we are in, a little animal print is a safe bet!  It seems odd that it's mid-June and I'm wearing a wool sweater and skirt, but both items are extremely thin and lightweight and it was cool and rainy here this morning so it worked out.  Hope you had a great Monday!   I've been thinking a lot about what it means to be a mom and also have the desire to remain stylish.  I think it can actually be a touchy subject.  A blog post on this subject is coming soon and I'd love to hear your thoughts as well!  Thank you for stopping by!


  1. Dresses are hard for me since our weather can change so fast. Love the pink on you!

  2. Thank you! I once read that wearing bright colors up close to your face will really brighten your complexion...I really think that's true!

  3. Let me know when you write the post. I love the topic :)
