Above Average

There are certain measurements, times and events in your life where the term “above average” is looked upon as a good thing. Scholastic aptitude test results for your kids, miles per gallon for your new car or perhaps even a food critic’s review of your new restaurant…to name just a few. Rainfall totals for a […] [Read More]

All Inclusive

When I saw the Corded Crossback Jumpsuit in last spring’s Anthropologie catalog, I knew it was a must have for the season and then some.  This nautically inspired number was both simple and sophisticated.  But even more appealing was that, like a dress, it was an outfit in an instant.  A statement bracelet, small, dangling […] [Read More]

Military style is a style I like.  These pieces are inspired by the clothing from the soldiers.  These styles make you look powerful and strong. Personally I would wear a full on military outfit…. But even if you just wear military boots, it will give you that military edge to your outfit. Military Overshirt @ Zara in Greenwich, […] [Read More]
