This seems to be my uniform lately for days of meetings, errands and office work. It's easy, thought process free, and really comfortable.

braving the cold...

This was me simply trying to find the warmest thing possible to wear to work as the frigid weather continues here in Ohio. I need a warmer climate and some sunshine. Seriously.

it was a be fearless weekend

A cozy outfit I wore over the weekend.
On Saturday I had the pleasure of working with some amazing women at Bfearless as part of a women's weekend getaway. Outside was a complete snowstorm, but the breakfast and atmosphere was warm at The Miller Haus B&B and the shopping at Bfearless was fantastic. Thank you to each and every women that participated, it was our greatest pleasure to have you.

If you missed it, check back we will be doing it again.

If you have visited our page before you know this is my favorite sweater of the season. I now own it in three different colors. The exact thing I tell my clients not to do. Sometimes I gotta break my own rules. The sweater along with these boots have been some of my favorite and most worn purchases this winter.

It comes back to what I say repeatedly; if you love it you will wear it all the time, therefore I don't mind spending a little more on it. Price per wear. Think about it. If you don't love it or feel pretty in it, don't spend any money on it.
Bam. There is my advice for the week.

travel outfits...

Here are the 5 outfits I wore last week to work in NYC. 
When traveling for work I typically pack a carry-on only. Yes, it's about the only time I'm a minimalist.

"How do you do it?" is a question I get asked all the time. So here are a few of my tips...
#1 Plan your outfits very strategically. Don't think you have to pack every new piece of clothing in your wardrobe.
#2 Wear your bottoms more than once, and re-use jackets and sweaters if possible.
#3 Try to only take 2 pair of shoes/boots. I know some of you are freaking out right now. I took 3 on this trip simply because I had extra room.
#4 Take at least one or two scarves that will go with everything. I also do this in the summer as I tend to get cold on the airplane.
#5 Take or wear accessories that will go with most of your outfits.
I take pictures of all my outfits as I prepare them so there is never a question why I brought something. And I just don't have to do any extra thinking in the morning, which is always a plus for me.

Now for the actual packing...
I fold and roll everything (like little sausages), put them into Travel Space Bags, squeezing the air out which will give you 2 - 3 times the amount of space in your suitcase. I never travel without them. I pack my extra shoes in a cheap cloth bag; to keep them from getting scratched, etc... I have travel sizes of all my liquids and simply refill them as needed. I put all these in a clear bag, which I pack in my purse so I don't have to dig it out of my carry-on when going through security. 

I hope this helps for the next time you travel. I would love to hear any tips and hints you have when traveling.
Happy trails!

leather and classic black

A simple classic black dress I have had for a few years. When you find that black dress that fits you perfectly, don't delay, buy it, as it will last you for years and is appropriate for may occasions.
I paired it with my new leather jacket my husband surprised me with for Christmas! Yes, I was thrilled. Still am.
