Purple shorts & open back tank


Hi everybody! This look is an outfit I wore for a casual family dinner last week before my brother and sister-in-law’s big day on Saturday. I love the open-back tank for beating the heat and this style of J. Crew shorts has been a staple of mine for years now. This color is new to my collection (and currently on sale!) and I am loving this pale purple color for summer. What are your go-to strategies for dressing to beat the heat?

Also, as a sneak peek, Tailored and True is due for a makeover. Right now I’m working behind the scenes, but check back on Monday to see the upgrade. I can’t wait to share!

Coastal Maine: Boyfriend jeans & heels


Hi everybody! If you read my last post, you’ll know I went home last weekend to where I grew up in Maine for a very special occasion. Saturday night I was so happy to go out to dinner with visiting family, and I was thrilled there was enough light to capture the beautiful scene from the parking lot of the restaurant. Views like this are one of my favorite parts of going home to Maine.

I had a few thoughts about heels this weekend that I wanted to share. First, if your main mode of transportation is a car, it is my firm belief that you should actively appreciate just how easy your feet have it. Cars + heels = happy feet. Also, boyfriend jeans + heels = one of the easiest ways to add a touch of glam to your outfit without going all out (or looking like you tried too hard!). Perfect for a night out with family or friends.

I also wanted to take a moment to say thank you for stopping by! I so appreciate all of your support and kind words. This blogging journey is only getting more fun for me, and that’s because of all of you!

Country living: Flannel & family time

Hi everybody!







This weekend my love affair with jeans and booties for fall continued. What can I say? It’s one of those tried and true – or should I say tailored and true (get it?! … yeah, it’s been a long day…) – combos that just can’t do any wrong. I visited my parents house in Maine, and despite the lovely sunshine, it was chilly up there! The visit called for some warm layers, and it felt like a no brainer to pack along my favorite cozy flannel and worn-in buckled booties. Those boots have stood the test of time, are oh-so-comfy, and are definitely up for a weekend of country living.
