I Still Love The Jeans And Blazer


Jeans, blazer and a classic shirt plus shoes of choice; it’s a good look.

We can change the shape and fabric of the jacket, the length and cut of the jeans but I don’t think this style trifecta ever gets tired.

Eyes Wide Open: The Feline Flick

The feline flick; I’m in.

Do you ever have those days (read months) where you and the art of make-up part ways?

Lace Ups, The Midi And The Best Sweater

The lace-ups are working well and the skirt is having a moment but it needs a sweater.

A sweater makes these pieces that much more relaxed; love the blouses but often times and particularly on the weekends or after hours the addition of a sweater changes everything completely.
