Channeling Kors Colors

I love this Michael Kors pre-fall 2011 outfit: especially the colors. So though the cut of the pants and the addition of the cardigan are totally different, I wanted to copy the color scheme: royal blue, black and white. (Too bad that Kors turtleneck sweater is $995.)

My Blog Hiatus

Hello to my faithful readers!

I am taking a break from blogging for a few months. Not only is the cold weather settling in, which makes outfit photos difficult, but I don't have much to share in the way of exciting style, it is mostly outfit repeats at this point. So rather than trying too hard to make it work, I'd rather do less posts of better quality. So you may see a post from time to time, but overall I would hate for you to visit each day and be disappointed at the lack of new content.

Let me leave you with these amazing words of wisdom from Luke 12:

Then {Jesus} said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”

And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’

“Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’

“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’

“This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”

May you be rich towards God during this Christmas season, and all through 2012!

Zoya Casey Nail Polish



Zoya Casey nail polish, Free people cardigan, shirt by Calvin Klein

Here's a little vampy nail polish for your viewing pleasure! And yes, I picked my outfit out to match it.

Casey starts out pretty sheer and plummy. Also a bit streaky. But by the time I hit three coats, it looked pretty good.

Military Style in the Snow


jacket by Calvin Klein, t-shirt by Vince, skirt from Anthropologie, Ralph Lauren tights, Sam Edelman quilted flats

I was greeted by a dusting of snow on our back porch when I went out the door this morning. My answer is a jacket with a military cut, army green skirt, and if you look closely at my flats, they have a camo print to them!

Hazy Shade of Winter




Eden cardigan from J. Crew, corduroy pants from J. Crew, vintage 1980s scarf by Norma Dori, white shirt by Splendid

Check out this navy blue cardigan, which I paired with royal blue pants and a scarf that includes other blues. As I stood outside taking photos, some light snow started to fall.

The cardigan is size small (I am size 4) and fits wonderfully, a mid-weight marino wool. I really like the arms, they are loose, which is helpful when you want to wear long sleeves underneath.

So Fly Like a G6

OK, OK, I know. I'm getting a haircut Friday, so no "fluffy hair" comments! I am balancing out what could be a librarian cardi-over-dress look with some pretty heels. Not that I am opposed to dressing like a librarian! Keep warm this week, the temperatures have really dropped, my friends!
