Weekender: Winter, Take a Hike

It seems that with every weather report comes the increasing hope that a spring forecast will finally appear on the 7-day radar. Tell winter to take a hike by heading into the hills this weekend for some fresh, albeit chilly, air. My go-to uniform? Jeans, a boyfriend cut sweater and my black Burberry coat – it’s warm yet tailored so I don’t feel too much like a marshmallow. 😉

And don’t forget a pair of boots made for walkin’! If you haven’t already, invest in a comfortable pair of black or brown riding boots. I promise, you’ll go miles in what has become my staple shoe; they truly go with everything.

Here’s to a great rest of your week and fabulous start to March!

Work Week Wardrobe: Tailored & Timeless

Happy Monday! Keep it simple this week with a classic look that combines flattering cuts and wardrobe staples. Try out some wide-leg trousers, a crisp blouse and a patent leather belt for a tailored yet modern vibe that’s perfect for the office. Add a pop of color with a vintage-inspired satchel and slip on a pair of pumps for an elongated silhouette. Have some fun with ladylike accessories such as an adorned headband and pearls for a finishing touch on a perfectly professional ensemble.

Here’s to a productive start to the week!
