going long


For second night out in ski country with husband’s law firm, went with a long skirt that was picked up when oldest son was a freshman in high school, now he’s a first year associate in said firm, back in our home town after seven years away for undergrad and law school, life is sweet.

Going long with the wardrobe is sweet too. It’s great to have pieces that can hang around for eleven or twelve years. The key is to pick good shape, good color, and good fabric. Pairing the long black skirt with the newer navy crepe jersey scarf blouse keeps the skirt feeling fresh and modern, always love black and navy.


For quick easy getaway packing went with solid colors; white, black, navy, one cuff bracelet, one necklace, two pairs of boots, and one bag.


Out of town colleague asked me today about #walkable boots. These are new ones from one of two current favorite Parisian women designers, Laurence Dacade. Her stuff is great, and I’ve become a little obsessed.


The long necklace is from Rochester NY friend and stylist Monica and her new jewelry company Dripping in Gems. Women working in fashion, love love love.

Every day dress, going long. Happy Monday everyone, below is how we’re going to get through the week: a slightly mad dash, #walkable, and with an open back.
