    Thank you for another inspiring post. I get so much, and so many ideas for styling outfits from you. May I ask how you store your clothes? You seem to have a large amount of clothes. I am gradualy adding to my wardrobe but am fast running out of storage space. I live in a 15th century cottage. The cottage is very lovely and full of character but people who lived here when it was first built, and throughout the years had very different clothing requirements and therefore no need for storage.

    • older homes are a challenge when it comes to closet space. I’m lucky as i converted a bedroom into a closet so have oodles of space.
      but i do look for things like baskets or under-the-bed storage that will give you additional space. also, hanging racks can look chic

    Beth,
    Help! My son is getting married at a beach wedding in Hawaii in October. I have no idea what to wear. Can you offer any suggestions? The only guidance I’ve received is that my dress should be a neutral (but not dark) color with little to no pattern. I’d prefer a midi dress with short(ish) sleeves. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated!

    • I would check out Halsbrook an online boutique that has a wide variety of dresses for an occasion such as this.
      Have fun!

    I love this style of dress. A midi works for me, since I am lucky to be tall!!
    Looked at the review online which was critical of the style and amount of fabric.
    Did you find this to be true???

    • that’s why i mentioned sizing down. I’m fairly tall so it wasn’t a problem especially with the built-in sash. but i would size down.

    Another beautiful blue dress that brings out your hair and eyes. I love those shoes, too. It’s nice to see a sleeveless style that has perfectly-sized armholes.
