GMG Florals at the Yumi Kim Wall

This outstanding Gal Meets Glam dress was such a back and forth for me. As a 5' tall lady with a long torso and super short legs, I've discovered over the years that maxi skirts and dresses tend to not work for me. To make the most of my short frame, I often will wear … Continue reading GMG Florals at the Yumi Kim Wall

Watermelons on Watermelons in Maryland

Nate and I went up to Maryland to visit with several of his old friends whom I haven't met. They wanted to have a crab feast, which I normally cannot participate in because of the Old Bay and the Pepper Allergy. Somehow, they managed to secure me six unseasoned crabs, which was AMAZING.   Not … Continue reading Watermelons on Watermelons in Maryland

1901 in Charlotte

The brand 1901 at Nordstrom is new to me, but as soon as I walked by the section I was drawn in by their cute ensembles. I really appreciate that they make inclusive sizing, and their clothes aren't designed solely with size 0's in mind. (not that there is anything wrong with a size zero, … Continue reading 1901 in Charlotte

Draper James at Palm Leaf Wall in Chicago

Draper James does it again! I LOVE this brand- to be fair, I love anything associated with Reese Witherspoon, and I own a lot of her dresses. This sweater dress has been heralded by many, but as sweater dresses tend to not be a great fit for me, I avoided this one simply because I … Continue reading Draper James at Palm Leaf Wall in Chicago
