  15. Karyn Bray says:

    You obviously put a lot of time and effort and energy into your posts and it shows! I too live in Georgia (Atlanta) and have a son who is a Junior in high school who will be touring UGA soon! Go Dawgs! I enjoy your outfit ideas, but especially this month’s travel blogs… It make me cringe when I see what some people wear to travel…I love your pops of red, I would do it my way with my favorite color of royal purple! I work full time in an office and my first thought when getting dressed in the morning is “style”… not “comfort”….well fitted, tailored clothing can be comfortable!

  16. Susan Ritter says:

    I love red shoes & wear them frequently but would never wear slides for travel thru an airport!! Esclators, moving walk ways, steps, jetways would be danger zones for slides! Loafers would work better. From Chadds Ford PA –

    NC here–I live in a town called Cary, (which is known as the Concentrated Area for Relocated Yankees–and it is.) It was in the 70s here today, and I went for a long walk around a beautiful lake close by. Bliss. Love this look, and I really love that bag! I am definitely a believer that everyone should have a pair (or two or three…) of red shoes! Pretty lady!

    Hi Beth…Brrr. I’m in Middleton outside of Madison WI. No socks and backless shoes make me shiver to think of it! I’m a displaced Washingtonian (DC) but I would rather have the cold of Wisconsin any day than the hot and humid DC summers. Am a faithful follower of your blog. An aside: Oscar is one handsome dude!

    British ex-pat (18 years Durham (just south of Newcastle) and 7 in Liverpool) past 15 years living in Sunnyvale, CA (Silicon valley). The years are adding up but bringing style and wisdom (at least I hope they are!)

    Huge fan of red shoes – I have the classic Ecco pair with the ‘button’ that they did about 10 or 12 years ago that still look brand new even though I’ve put hundreds of miles on them!

    Keep up the great work.

    Best wishes

    Am stuck in MI. The cute styles on the blog don’t work for me but fun to view. Since I have to leash walk/potty our 2 dogs, my look is with a hat( always … hair up in top knot), and full-on winter wear. This usually is until Mid-April.

  107. Marty says:

    I live in a remote northeastern part of Arizona in the mountains where we have had some snow but really cold, biting winds! I get inspiration from reading how you “shop your closet” and combine new and “old” from it. I order frequently from Talbots and like to combine jackets with jeans as you do. But I still can’t bring myself to wear torn jeans!

    Grew up in SoCal, Inland Empire, on a chicken ranch. Went East to school and living in Camden,NJ for over 30 years. I propose that I may be the only wearer of corduroy in the entire city, including the university district.

  109. Kathy says:

    Love the colorful shoes and bag. I just bought a pair of dark yellow loafers and am now thinking up ways to incorporate them into my wardrobe. Since I live in Florida, yellow shoes are something I can wear year round. I’ve added much more color to my wardrobe since relocating from New England.

    Hi from Northwest Florida!! I live in the Pensacola area and am retired. It is actually too warm here to wear some of the adorable layering pieces you show. I am hot-natured and love to layer but have some problem with that here. I am a huge fan and love all of the looks.
