Happy Wednesday!  I hope every one's week is going well so far.

Today's looks is a simple one.  Simple always leaves me feeling like myself.   Timeless basics, interesting textures...subtle but eye catching.  It is all about knowing your own style and choosing wisely.  I think choosing wisely is building a wardrobe from a place of intention.  Mindfully choosing quality pieces that you absolutely love, and the coordinate well with your existing favorites.  I adore this sweater.  Olive is catching my eye lately...in a big way.  Paired with black, and delicate gold accessories.

  We are in blizzard lock down up here in Rhode Island. The winter wonderland is strikingly beautiful and cozy when I don't have to drive in it.  The New England stormy weather sets the stage for candles, logs on the fire, tea or coffee by day, red wine by night, cozy blankets, netflix binges.  All fabulous indeed.  I even opened up the door enough to stick my lens out and capture the heart of the storm and I think I got some pretty pictures.

Hi!  I hope you all had a restful weekend. 
 Mine was both restful and productive...a combination I find extremely fulfilling.   I think that balance of hard work and meaningful repose is one that we all strive for even when we don't realize this is what we are after.   

Lets talk about this faux fur stole.  I love it!   I've thrown it on over a sweatshirt, a dress...a blazer, a cardi.  Anything goes.  This is one of those pieces that effortlessly transforms a simple look into something a bit more elegant in an instant.   This is my favorite kind of elegant.

What are your go to pieces when you want to elevate a simple look?
