Hi Dear Readers …

The outfit I had planned to share this week has been delayed in the mail, so I thought for something different I would just share some random outfit snaps from the last couple of weeks.  I’m starting off with this new dress I just purchased on Amazon.

Wardrobe Building 101

February 9, 2022

Today I’m excited to share a post about building a wardrobe, the simple basics … Wardrobe Building 101!

This is an outfit created by following all my own suggestions: neutral colors in personally flattering silhouettes, with a pop of my favorite accent color.
