I am slowly adding things to my closet after the great closet clean-out. It’s a lot harder than I thought. I’ve bought a couple of shirts, which I find easier to buy than pants, which are tougher to nail when it comes to fit. These henleys from Free People are really nice – they’re comfortable […]

I don’t suit floppy summer hats – they dwarf me.  They also just too shapeless for me and seem to suit flowing maxi dresses but not much else.  Since I tend to wear a lot of shorts in the summer, a fedora is better.  It hides beach hair when necessary and still gives a little […]

Mint, the color, is the color popping up for spring. At first when I saw it, I thought, no thanks. It’s too pastel, too child like, too easter egg-ish.
