I rarely think to buy pajamas. It wasn’t until I started packing for last weeks trip to D.C. and realized that Christine and I were going to be roomies that I felt the need to pick up some new ones. I love this lightweight romper. It’s so soft and cozy. I was so happy to slip into it after our very long (and fun) days and throw it on after a shower as I got ready in the morning. I picked one up in Navy and Grey.

There is nothing remotely pretty about me when I work out. I don’t wear any makeup (obviously), and my hair is in a knot on my head. Most of the time it’s early in the morning, so I’m half asleep, and I look it. When I started taking Barre in January, the only thing more intimidating than the work out was the gorgeous, and insanely fit women in the class. One, I swear blows out her hair before class, several are in full makeup, and more than a few have a stack of Cartier love bracelets on the wrists of their epically toned arms. I’m way out of my league, but the workout is so great that I can’t stop going. They inspired to replace some of my more shabby tops and bottoms with a few updated pieces. Under Armor has been my go-to brand for long-wearing, comfortable activewear. These capris are lightweight, and provide the perfect amount of coverage. They allow you to move in all sorts of ways and still keep their shape.
It’s getting to be that time of the summer when I start to get bored of what I have but don’t want to spend a lot of money on new pieces. With our trip to Napa quickly approaching I wanted just a few new tops. This sweet shell was exactly what I wanted. I’m bringing it to wear with skinny jeans and shorts. The shape is simple, and the texture of the overlay gives just enough interest to make it look and feel special.

H&M Suede Passport Case, $17.95
The H&M season preview catalog arrived in my mailbox this week. The pictures are casually chic, and the prices are hard to resist. Quality tends to be hit or miss so while I enjoyed making a rather large online order, I know over half will be returned. I came across this in the accessories section. I do not have a case for my passport and haven’t found a need for one in the past, but the color and price made me think twice. Maybe I should? I checked out other passport cases online, and the selection I found are either too masculine, too expensive or lack any style. If you go abroad or have a friend that does, consider this rather distinctive travel accessory.
A double strand pendant necklace will look flattering over most solid colored blouses. If the top does not create a v-neck style, undo the first button so that it does. This V-shape creates the space where the first necklace should lay, below your collarbone and on bare skin. The second pendant should fall somewhere along your bra line. I like the continuity of this set; it’s the same pendant, one smaller and one larger, which then looks cohesive.
I pulled this dress for one of our client appointments this week. The cut out in the neckline adds subtle interest, and the jacquard navy body gives a great texture to the look. It’s a classic navy sheath dress with just enough detail to make it special yet still traditional enough to be your ‘go-to’ navy dress.
