A certain stripe

If you’re ready to savor the nautical side of summer, this skirt has got you covered! While I do love the stripes, the price has got to be the best part. This J.Crew skirt is just from last spring, and would have cost you at least $75 to buy it new. This Goodwill bargain (size […]

Business casual, and a word about pants

Readers, I visit your computer screen today for two reasons. The first is to show off the ensemble I wore to work last week.

Seaworthy

Major fashion confession: If you didn’t already know, I’m a huge fan of all things nautical and never want sailor style to leave our closets.
