What to wear with a boilersuit

I no longer know what day it is, what time of year it is, or where I'm supposed to be right now, which may explain the hot mess that is this outfit. The centerpiece is a boilersuit, or jumpsuit, and because it's spring (I think) and the weather has been all over the place, that may explain why I'm wearing a leather jacket and suede sandals with it. Earlier in the day, I was almost sweating while walking the dog, yet when we went out to shoot this, it became inexplicably chilly. And yet, I wanted to wear both this jumpsuit and these sandals, which Vionic sent me ages ago and yet it's been too cold to even think about putting them on, until now. Somehow throwing a leather jacket onto all of this seemed like an easy fix. I don't know...maybe it works? You be the judge.

What to buy during the Sephora sale

Probably every blogger you follow has been talking about the Sephora Spring Savings Event recently, and for good reason—Sephora rarely offers blanket discounts. And while everyone has their favorite products to recommend, I'd like to think that mine come from a specific point of view. I rarely talk about my day job here on the blog, but for those of you who don't know me personally, I work at Sephora's corporate offices as an editorial creative director. Yes, it's pretty much a dream job, I love it, and I know I'm lucky to have it. As part of my job, I'm exposed to a lot of products, so I have pretty strong opinions on what works and what doesn't. In other words, I'm pulling rank here! So if you're in a place to be spending money right now, here's what I recommend. Don't forget to use code SPRINGSAVE through 4/29.

What to wear with flared jeans

Back when I was in Paris (it feels like ages ago although it was only last month), I noticed all of the coolest women were wearing flared-leg jeans. At first, I thought, "Been there, done that," but Parisians have that effortlessly chic way of wearing anything that just convinces you to just go for it. At the ripe age of 42, I feel like I've lived through at least two rounds of flared jeans in my lifetime, but it appears they're on the verge of another comeback. And while I normally take a pass on trends I've already endured, I'll generally make an exception for denim. Thankfully I held on to a pair of flares from about 12 years ago, the last time they were in fashion, and I'm glad I did, because here we are. So here's how to style flared denim and not look like your 18-year-old self.

What to wear with culotte jeans

In a pretty stark contrast to last week's all-knit outfit, I'm in all wovens this week. And while normally this outfit would seem pretty casual, I felt rather dressed up wearing clothes with buttons and zippers! That said, this is a look that I more or less wore in London last month, but I had to keep the jacket zipped up because it was so chilly. It's definitely still on the cool side here, but these lighter colors at least look a little springy—hence why I jumped at the chance to shoot it again under some pretty blossoming trees. Here's how it all came together.

Get the look: floral midi dress

While Tuesday's outfit post was all about reality, this one is about escapism. IRL, I've pretty much been living in leggings and sweatpants, however once a week I put on a skirt and it makes me feel human again. And while I know there are bigger things to be worrying about right now, I'd like to offer a bit of optimism via fashion: soon life will return to normal, the weather will warm up, and we can dress up to honor the beauty in life once again. I have a feeling that's why this pin from my Outfit ideas for ageless style Pinterest board has been so popular lately, so in preparation for brighter days ahead, let's re-create the look. 


What to wear while sheltering in place

I know what you're thinking, so I'm going to cut to the chase: yes, I am wearing sweatpants AND Uggs at the same time. To be honest, I did it on the regular before this coronavirus thing happened, however it was usually while walking my dog early in the morning and it rarely showed up here. But these are strange days, and times have certainly changed. I am definitely dressing for comfort nowadays, however I spend most of my time on Zoom calls for work, so I do need to look somewhat presentable. Perhaps you've heard of this concept as "dressing from the waist up" and that's exactly what this outfit is: a somewhat presentable ensemble on top and a hot mess on the bottom. I encourage you to fully embrace it.
