We are all built differently, and that is WONDERFUL news. The bad news is it seems most designers do not consider all of our different body types when they create clothing. There is literally not one human on the planet that can wear everything (even runway models!). The key is that we FIRST learn our body type and then SECOND learn what to do about it….
When I get dressed, sometimes I find that I get my whole outfit on and then realize I don’t have the perfect shoe to go with it. You can imagine that this does not make me happy. Shoes cannot be an afterthought! We must plan ahead, so I have identified the 6 shoes that will be extremely helpful to make sure we have in our closet this fall….
I absolutely love fall. The weekends are so cozy. My favorite things to do include apple picking, creating recipes, and going out to brunch. To do all of these things, we must have a comfortable and chic outfit….
Lately, when I’ve been getting dressed, I’ve been really obsessed with combining sophisticated and deconstructed elements. I love the juxtaposition of “put-together” and “edgy”, so that’s the way I styled our perfect date night look for fall this year. Please do not be afraid of your age, because this look is not scandalous and it can work for anyone. Fashion is all about your spirit and attitude….
When I’m at my desk ready to write an article or I’m standing in the kitchen trying to photograph chili in a way that doesn’t make it look like dog food, I want to love how my outfit looks when I glance down. If I don’t look like myself, I can’t possibly feel like myself, and how the heck am I suppose to work if I’m not myself?! So, here’s the outfit I’m wearing this fall that will make me feel inspired every time I see it….
You know I love fashion, and that extends to fashion for the little princesses and princes in my life! I always say, kids are people too :). I love observing kids and it has been so fun for me to see them develop their own personalities and their very STRONG opinions on what they do and do not want to wear. Here are some of the go-to brands that us Graye Note Ladies love for finding the perfect styles for our little ones….
I think I say this every year: “I LOVE fall fashion!” It marks the beginning of a new year on the fashion calendar. However, these days, true fall clothing generally isn’t weather-appropriate until it’s almost time to stop wearing it! This is not acceptable because I’m certainly not going to march about Manhattan in my coral-colored beach dress just because it’s still 80 degrees. So, here’s the solution of what to wear instead….
I essentially like to shop any and EVERY day, but I find it challenging once we’re nearing the end of a season. I want new clothes, but I also want to be able to wear them more than once before I have to say goodbye until next year. The trick that solves this dilemma towards the end of summer is to find dresses that we can wear now AND are appropriate for fall. Here’s what we need to look for….
I love a day at the beach or by the pool…the sun, the breeze, the water. It’s magical. But then once I am home and squeaky clean after a nice shower, I don’t want to put on my PJs yet because it’s only 4pm! I want to be comfortable, but as always I want to still feel like myself, which means put-together. So, this is the perfect option and here’s why….
