Today I thought I’d share a new favorite versatile outfit. I love the flexibility that dark jeans and a silk blouse afford. I wore this outfit with boots to a brunch in the morning, a concert in the afternoon, and then swapped in these wedges for a slightly fancier nighttime look. I love outfits that can take me from day to night, and its a strategy I’ve been using a lot lately!

What are your all-day outfit go-tos?

Thanksgiving: Family gatherings & what to wear

Hi everybody! Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope you’ll humor me today as I try something new. Despite the fact that I’m writing this now from my parent’s couch wrapped up in my most comfortable jeans and Smartwool socks (my favorite to stay warm), I know that a lot of people dress up for the holidays to visit with friends, extended family, or the extended family of friends. See what I did there? In any event, with so much going on and so many people to meet, you absolutely don’t also want to be stressed about whether you are dressed appropriately. So, while I normally do my very best to pack light, my advice to you is to bring options. If you aren’t sure if jeans are appropriate, make sure to bring a back-up dress or skirt. And while I didn’t get my act together enough to post this yesterday, here are a few examples that will hopefully help to inspire you throughout the rest of your visits this holiday season.

One good option if you’re traveling further than across town is to show up dressed in your more casual outfit, and if you find yourself underdressed, to change into your more formal option upon arrival. What are your thoughts on how to beat outfit anxiety over the holidays?

And now, on a separate note, while I try to thank my readers in every post, I wanted to take a quick moment to truly express how grateful I am for your support, and for reading my blog. I always love to hear your thoughts on what you like, what you would like to see going forward, and how I can further help provide inspiration for your daily wardrobe needs.

Here’s to health and happiness for family and friends. Thank you very much for reading!

Just a quick hello today! This weekend was spent catching up with old friends in New York City. It was wonderful to reconnect with them, explore the city, and indulge in a Friday vacation day. I’m already looking forward to our next vacation together!
