Western Glam

I’m not in touch with up and coming trends, but I heard a rumor that cowgirl style is hot. I couldn’t be more pleased, especially since I just bought my third pair of “real” western boots.

10 Years

Today, my team surprised me with a celebration of my 10 year anniversary with our company. They toasted me with champagne, ordered me chocolate cake, and then each shared a few words about our experience together. I was surprised and very touched.

Wide Stripes

Who’d have thunk that wide, horizontal stripes could be so flattering? I love the way they add width to my narrow upper body and create the balance required for an hourglass shape.

Dressing in the Dark

I’ve finally gotten so bored with my wardrobe that I’m pairing things like a black and white buffalo check with a brown and white abstract floral. Mixing black and brown is tricky. If it doesn’t look intentional, then it looks as if you dressed in the dark. (I HAVE dressed in the dark before and was on the bus before I discovered I was wearing one brown boot and one black boot.) I rely on accessories to bring it all together.

Does today’s outfit look intentional or accidental? In the end, black and brown are both neutrals, so I’m not terribly worried about the mix.

Washed Out

It’s still summer in Sacramento. While the mornings have been cool, the afternoons will hit 90 all week. I’m feeling a little faded from the relentless sunshine.
