Style Challenge: Winter 10×10

It’s that time again…another 10×10 Style Challenge is upon us. Thanks to Lee (from Style Bee) and Caroline (from Un-fancy) for hostessing and bringing together a super cool community that is sharing their wardrobe creativity.

Winter Capsule Outfits: Week 3

With all of the brainstorming and getting ready to post my Winter 10×10 items tomorrow, I hadn’t planned on posting my daily outfits for this week. But, one of my outfits this week reminded me of what I think is the most important thing to consider when getting dressed and working to keep a lean…

Winter Capsule Outfits: Week 2

I am calling this the week of Mondays. Boy, this first week after break kind of kicked my rear. My own kids were tired and pretty grumpy all week, my students were also tired and pretty grumpy. And all of that made me pretty tired and grumpy 🙂 But we’ve survived and I have strong…
