Is This Too Young for Me?

Last week I was pre-shopping for a client wearing one of my favorite outfits. (Yep, you’ve seen it, lol!) All day I got compliments from salespeople in their ‘20’s. I joked with my husband later that night, “You know you’ve got it right when the ‘youngsters’ like your outfit.” Then for a fleeting moment I paused and wondered if the outfit might not be too young for me…and just as quickly decided the outfit was as fab as I’ve always thought.

And that leads me to wondering what I’d wear for that party. If you want to root on the Orange and Blue, a.k.a. the Denver Broncos, on February 7 in fashion, but aren’t quite sure you want to [..] read more

How to wear maxi cardigans

Currently a trend for fall/winter, maxi cardigans also known as duster cardigans, are long length sweaters that hit anywhere between just below the knee and the ankle. I particularly like the trend, because it feels fresh, stylish, and new without being ridiculously trendy. Plus, they’re super versatile! Here are a few tips for wearing the style: Maxi cardigans are best in neutral colors made of fine gauge knit. It’s a lot of fabric on your body, so it is easy to become overwhelmed. If you’re tall, you can wear a thicker knit (or possibly even a pattern) that hits at ankle [..] read more
