One of the best parts about living in Downtown Burlington is the walkability. I’m lucky in that I’m able to walk to work, however that means most days (especially during the winter) I’m carrying a change of shoes in my bag. As much as I’m a slave to fashion I’m even more of a realist and platforms just aren’t practical, especially in Burlington. Besides I love these heels way too much to subject them to the salt, muck, and grey snow matter that’s currently covering the sidewalks. I leave that to my trusty Old Navy boots, the more wear and tear they endure the better they look.
Does your commute affect your wardrobe? Are you fashion focused or rooted in reality?

This Sunday, February 10th, marks the Chinese New Year and 2013 happens to be the Year of the Snake. While snakes might not top my list of favorite animals, those born in the Year of the Snake are thought to be wise, inquisitive, stylish, and sometimes vain. I was born in the Year of the Rabbit (the Fire Rabbit specifically) and after
researching reading more about my Chinese Zodiac sign I realized it was right on; what can I say I’m your typical conflict avoiding, travel loving, stylish Rabbit.
Rabbits and Snakes aside the approaching holiday reminded me that this silk hasn’t had an outing in a while. My dad brought this jacket back from China with him over 10 years ago and every time I wear it I always think the same thing, “why the heck don’t I wear this more?” So consider yourself warned folks, this silk jacket is here to stay.
What pieces in your closet could use a little more love? Does your Chinese Zodiac Sign match your personality?

Gifted Faux Fur Snood, Talbot’s Blouse: Goodwill, Belt: Target Tweed Shorts: Old Navy, Calvin Klein Tights: TJ Maxx, Michael Antonio Heels, Ring: GiltThese tweed shorts were in a
forgotten newly discovered box of winter clothes I found while digging out the holiday decorations. Rediscovering these pieces reinvigorated my cold weather style and created dozens of outfit ideas, including this one. There is something about wearing lace and tweed together that just works. It’s a bit prim and proper but the faux fur and Michael Antonio platforms round it out nicely.
What’s been working for you lately?
