Horsing Around

There are times when you need getting dressed to just be easy. Ok, most of the time you need getting dressed to just be easy! That's when it helps to have some staples - those pieces that you just love. This dress is a favorite of mind, partly because it is named the "Trotting through Tulsa" dress-  I love the nod to my hometown! This blazer a particularly great piece for me - I remember last year when it practically leaped across the Charles Street location of Crush Boutique into my hands. Finally, I love wearing items that I have purchased on vacation - they take a little of my trip with me wherever I go. So on a day I didn't have time to think about putting together an outfit, I just grabbed my favorite pieces and threw them all together! Do you have some favorite clothes that always "work"? 

P.S. Need some last minute Valentine's Day gift ideas - either for someone else, or for someone special (you!)? Starting this afternoon, I'll be tweeting What I Love for Your Love, a TBF Valentine's Day Gift Guide!
