Last week I had the pleasure of meeting Susan of the blog Fifty Not Frumpy. She was here to do a photo shoot for Covered Perfectly, and I was able to get away from the office for a couple of hours to meet her for lunch. It was such fun; we marveled at how the blogging world has provided so much opportunity for connection and getting to know like-minded women. (Susan was lucky weather-wise: her visit was nicely timed in between two heat waves, the second of which will hopefully break soon.)
I’ve really been crushing on Madewell lately. They’re owned by J.Crew, but are the more “laid back” sister of the two. It doesn’t look like much on the hanger, but the sweater shown above is a lovely lightweight and swingy merino that’s a perfect transitional season piece (nice for cool weather travel too). Available in several colors (love the “vintage forest”) and it’s on sale!
I missed getting my submission in, but Adrienne and Jill had their monthly “How I Wear My…” gathering earlier in the week, and this month’s theme was Tassels. See all of the contributors at The Rich Life On A Budget and Everything Just So. This would have been my submission to the party.
Imogen explains why white is her new black.
Tomorrow Brian my Hair Genius™ is paying a visit for a much-needed touch up. I still like my hair color but am taking notes for that day when I’m ready to let my natural color take over. Judith (Style Crone) and Alyson (That’s Not My Age) describe their strategies for transitioning to silver.
My posts this week:
- A review of Style Forever by Alyson Walsh
- In between heat waves, I broke out a couple of new fall pieces and one old favorite.
- My picks for a fall travel wardrobe
And finally, I’ve updated my SHOP page with some fall items.
How is your weekend shaping up?
