Realism: What to Wear on Your First Day

There are lots and lots of articles out there about what to wear to an interview. And depending on the job you are interviewing for, this can be very good and applicable advice. However, there is much less advice on how to dress for that first day once you have landed the new job. Obviously, […]

Three Pairs of Shoes You Must Own

Some of us may have a closet full of shoes and others may only have one pair. Realistically I think the goal should be somewhere in between, depending on your lifestyle. If you go hiking every weekend, then hiking boots would be essential. If you are a runner, then a good pair of sneakers are […]

When To Buy New Clothes During and After Weight Loss

While you are in the middle of a new regimen to lose weight, it can be frustrating that your old clothes no longer fit but you are not quite ready to buy an entirely new wardrobe. When you are in between sizes, it can be awkward because things start to fit strangely and sag in […]

Staying Stylish on the Weekends

Sometimes we’re tempted to get too casual over the weekends, and live in yoga pants and tee shirts as a rebellion against suits and slacks during the week.  And if you are just running errands or staying at the house, that wardrobe will work just fine.  But what if you have other plans – a […]

New Year, New You: Fashion

With the new year comes the desire to refresh and renew everything, including the clothing in the closet.  But how to objectively look at what is already in there and what needs to be added or removed?  Oftentimes, the same outfits are worn over and over again without thought to mixing them up.

I have been told by multiple people in my life that I am very difficult to shop for when it comes to birthdays and holidays.  And for me, it is a struggle to come up with a list of ‘things’ that I want.  I am not ‘thing-oriented’ so I rarely want more stuff.  So as […]

How to dress for a trip to the Pacific Northwest

While my family usually gathers in Colorado for holidays together, this year we are venturing to Seattle instead.  In my opinion, Colorado is relatively easy to dress for – it is going to be cold so bring lots of warm layers.  But Seattle is a little different.  It will be chillier than Dallas for sure, […]

In the same way we update our wardrobes for the changing of the seasons, our handbag could probably use an update too!  Since I carry the same one day in and day out, it always takes a beating in just a few months. But instead of buying the same black or brown basic, your handbag […]

Your wallet – one large one or several divided small ones?

We have seen all kinds of wallets come out of all kinds of purses — giant wallets out of tiny purses and huge purses that are carrying a tiny wallet.  While I do not much care for clothing shopping, I do love a good purse and wallet browsing. I am currently carrying a relatively small […]

Comfortable Shoes that are Still Stylish

I’ve recently been diagnosed with chronic inflammation of both my lower back and some of the tendons in my feet.  This does not bode well for any stilettos in my closet.  While the high heels actually make my feet feel better, they do no favors for my lower back. I’ve been on the hunt for […]
