Stopped in at husband’s office today and he said, ‘wow, you look like you’re working’. 🙂

Yes, and that’s a good thing. Even better when you get to wear full on denim and bronze footwear. 🙂 Full disclosure, we were doing inventory, and packing, and shipping out to multiple states.

Still at it, and posting this during a quick little break.

Can’t help myself with the emojis, working with beautiful women and beautiful clothing is a very good gig.

We love to every day dress. Hump day everyone! xoxo

Couple of things:

  • love that in my professional life I get to wear things like denim, and a suede shirt, and suede sandals, thank you Worth New York.
  • thinking that while we love deeply things that are dark, like coffee, and mostly black clothes, red wine, and chocolate, that it’s a good idea to always add color, something maybe like this poppy suede shirt. 🙂

Met with a client last week in suite 101, that’s what partner and I decided today to call our work space proper moving forward, and was hoping she would add some color to her wardrobe. She lit up when she put on a jacket in canary yellow, we settled of course on navy, for the time being. 🙂

Every day dress, let’s all add a little color. xoxo

And, to confuse it again, loving this white and green in the garden, oh, joy.

variation of a theme

Clients tell me they gravitate towards the same look, again and again. We say, love, wear, repeat. When you find what works, do it over and make it better.

For trunk today wore a variation of yesterday’s theme and the day’s before: this time a new kind of funky white pant, black  bodysuit, again, and black jacket. Block heel white shoe boots provided a little leg lengthening, always welcome, and the camel bag added a third color, you know, third time’s the charm.

As we love work, food, family, and good clothes (and not in any particular order), dinner tonight was more of the same; a roasted vegetable, fresh greens, and lean protein on the grill. Yes, dill relish and ketchup add texture and depth.

If you’d like to add to your wardrobe rotation, visit us for an in person or online styling session at www.worthnewyork.com/rebecca-collins or www.worthnewyork.com/michelle-capizzi. We’re working trunk all this week through Thursday April 28th and then again May 10th – May 12th. Online, anytime. 🙂

Every day dress, variation of a theme, good clothes, good food. xoxo

Even the garden likes variation of a theme by self-seeding itself.

 

in trunk mode

Professionally, we do four seasonal trunk shows a year. Helping women find clothes they feel and look great in is a pretty good gig. 🙂

IMG_0473

When in trunk mode our desk is usually crowded with lots of tech stuff, empty wine and water glasses, and a bowl of dark chocolate m&m’s. There’s a small love seat, with a tea-table, topped with fashion books and flowers.

You’ll find us probably dressed in a column of black; tank, black leather skinnies, and a neutral suede shoe, all the better to try different combinations on.

Today we were loving a white stretch denim modal sleeve jacket, and then to switch it up the heather natural embroidered poncho, both from Worth New York Summer 2016.

After a day of dressing others, dinner needs to be quick.

grace returns

For 8:30 am board meeting yesterday wore last year’s grace pant under a black stretch cotton dress from years ago, that’s how we roll. Had to be out the door quick so once again minimal make-up, BB cream, and red lip.

IMG_0398

Colleague Michelle and I set up trunk today and good news, the grace pant returns, in white and black pique. Fabric is divine, and the fit is spot on; waist down, contour yoke, slim fit, tapered leg, ankle length, lets you move baby.

Alice, working on your pant closet, stay tuned, everyone needs a little grace now and then.

To have a look at the grace pant and more book your appointment online for in person or virtual online at www.worthnewyork.com/rebecca-collins or www.worthnewyork.com/michelle-capizzi.

In four short weeks at 5:30 pm on Wednesday May 18th we’ll be celebrating What She’s Made Of with keynote speaker Wendy Selig-Prieb at world-renowned contemporary Albright-Knox Art Gallery. An exquisite tented cocktail and hors d’oeuvre reception hosted by Delaware North Companies in a fabulously tented courtyard will precede her message of Creating a Life You Love by Becoming Your Chief Entrepreneurial Optimist, with an after-party of what else, dessert, and we always love dessert.

This event, our 8th annual, not to be missed. For tickets and info, visit www.wnywomensfoundation.org.

What we love even more than dessert is lifting others up, and providing opportunity for women and children to grow and succeed.

Every day dress, in four weeks at Albright-Knox Art Gallery, thank you Wendy for coming to BUF and sharing the love. xoxo

To set up two spring summer 16 trunks yesterday wore Citizens of Humanity denim, the melanie wide leg crop in retro. Paired them with one of my Worth New York pieces from a few seasons ago, last year’s shoes, and recent bag. The mix-up felt right. Colleague commented she liked seeing me in navy. 🙂

Tried on these dresses and this wicked long skirt at second trunk set-up, loving them all.

about four years…

yeah, that’s a car selfie, we’re casual here

About four years ago we launched this site to talk about and inspire one another about the every day. The crazy good every day. And for me what I first wrote about holds true, I think the post was called 7 ways to have a good day, or something like that. Oldest son suggested I start posts with ‘a number’ and ‘ways’ to do it. I guess it increases your SEO or search engine optimization and honestly we’re not all concerned with that here and now simply name our posts whatever feels best.

So, here’s the original 7:

make your bed, eat protein for breakfast, get out of your yoga clothes, put on some makeup, walk the dogs, make some dinner, spend time with those you love. 

Of course there’s a lot of everything that goes along with the above, like work, and parenting, and travel, shopping maybe, and housekeeping, and bad moods…yet, if I’m honest and I can check off the above, it’s a pretty damn good day.

I like to instill those 7 in my kids, and sometimes tell them they need to do the ‘every day dress’ thing. As in, get up, dress up, show up. It’s working; they are all on a pretty good path, bumps included. Here’s how second daughter hosted a little birthday brunch celebration for one of her squad this past Sunday, so proud of her, happy birthday Gabby.

not that I ever approve of shots, ever

Those 7 aren’t exact, simply the feel of it all. Walk the dogs can be anything that makes you feel alive, connected with nature, that moves your body. Get out of your yoga clothes is about showing respect for yourself and others in what we are all wearing for the day, runaround included.

Make your bed is absolutely basic. First things first. There’s nothing better than walking into a room, good day or not, with a nicely made bed. Simple.

Protein? In the morning? Can only think of a few things better than that and one of them is coffee. 🙂

Now about makeup: I’ve been guilty here. Kind of liking letting the skin show through with a little BB cream and a nude lip, or red-orange. Maybe I’m trying to be a little french or maybe all kinds of makeup feels like it’s aging…not really sure. My momma always told me, “Rebecca, brush your hair and put on some lipstick,” so that’s the least I can do. 🙂

If you’ve read along you know I’m all about dinner; it brings everyone back, and to the center, and is pleasurable in so many ways. Husband can’t understand at all how I think about ‘what’s for dinner’ first thing in the morning or maybe even the afternoon before. Wow…food rules.

And, as for dinner, it’s really a great way to spend time with those you love. It’s either glorious, or subtle, or even in between – whatever the day may be, and we love all of that – a punctuation mark. Wikipedia calls punctuation “The practice, action, or system of inserting points or other small marks into texts, to aid interpretation; division of text into sentences, clauses, etc., by means of such marks.” Can’t think of a better way to mark a day than a good meal with those we love.

Now the tangent; one thing we didn’t write about in the beginning is something we’re growing to love even more: searching, looking, seeking, aligning, and drawing out the best in others, always. 

Thank you for reading, especially if you’ve gotten this far. Every day dress, 141 subscribers, 217,821 views, 776 comments, LOVE. Thank you. xoxo… Search engine optimization be damned.
