Apples & Anchors

An outfit a day keeps the doctor away… or is it “apple?” Either way, I killed two birds with one stone this Columbus Day. I finally went apple picking, and it could not have been a more gorgeous day. It was the perfect opportunity to wear my brand new Vineyard Vines anchor skirt! The skirt and […]

Back to Cool

I may have gone to public high school, but there were certainly times I fantasized about a school uniform. No, not for the ease of getting ready in the morning or the leveling of the proverbial playing field. Rather, for the creative expression that comes with trying to make a uniform unique.

Nama-Stay Stylish: Part Two

As I promised in my previous post, I took my athletic-wear from the mat to the streets. After an outdoor yoga session, I went downtown for a coffee and some window shopping with a friend. I kept my Fabletics top on, but I swapped my sports bra for a lacy bralette. I put on one of my […]

Nama-Stay Stylish: Part One

When Life Gives You Lemons

I finally drank the Lululemon Kool-Aid. Well, let’s say I drank the discount Kool-Aid. I did make my first Lulu purchase, but I still have yet to buy a full-priced item. And I most likely never will. If you know me, you know I have a thing against paying full-price for anything. When I know certain brands eventually discount […]

A Purrfect Find

If you haven’t gathered from my blog title by now, I don’t shy away from color. Put me in a store and I flock to the brightest hues like a moth to a lamp. The more obnoxious, the better. That’s how I found this bold orange button-down on Wednesday. I was scouring the racks at Gentry’s […]
