Many of you have been asking for ideas for more dressed-up looks. So I thought I’d share this one, which I put together as part of an Instagram collaboration I’m doing with Chico’s. (All items shown were gifted, except the watch, bag, and shoes.)
I’m wearing Chico’s size 0 Petite in the sweater, 0 in the top, and 00 in the pants. Chico’s is currently having a Chic in Bloom event, with 40% off select items. All of the clothing items I’m wearing here are included! The sweater is also available in other patterns, as well as solid colors.
I’m all for keeping outfits simple and comfortable (“dressed up, not trussed up”), so I started with a neutral column and let the color and pattern of the cardigan be the focal point. This outfit would also travel well, and all of the pieces could easily be re-mixed. You could wear this to a brunch, baby shower, graduation…I’m hopeful that it won’t be too much longer until we’re able to celebrate together with family and friends.
Defining and enhancing your eyes…a live Zoom tutorial!
Tomorrow, I’ll be joining my friend Brian of Brian + MW to learn some simple but effective techniques to enhance our eyes! Brian has received a lot of questions about eye makeup, so I think this will be a lively and informative session. And he’s putting together some special promotions for those in attendance. We’ll start at 3 pm ET / 12 pm PT. If you’d like to join us, just click HERE to pre-register.
I look forward to seeing you there!

Because ageism is never in style…
If you aren’t familiar with The Bias Cut, it’s an online boutique started by Jacynth Bassett, dedicated to providing fashionable clothing for women of all ages. Jacynth has been a very vocal anti-ageism activist, and has just launched a new campaign, Strike Out Ageism. Partnered with Wellbeing of Women, a women’s health charity, the goal of the campaign is to “expose, disrupt, ageist language, [and] unconscious biases…”
As part of the campaign, they’ve created a special collection, and 20% of all sales proceeds will be donated to Wellbeing of Women, a UK charity promoting women’s health research. I hope you’ll take a look.
