So after all my talk about a flat-shoe-centric life, here I am in heels. I wore this on a day when I had a TV appearance and spent the rest of my time working from home. And these Clarks heels are one of the few pairs I can still rely on to keep my feet happy, at least for short runs. They made the cut from my merciless shoe purge.

With the style shift, I expected my sartorial inspiration to be drawn from edgy, rocker-ish sources. Instead, I find myself ogling the clothing and styling at Eileen Fisher (hence these completely amazing pants) and Peruvian Connection. Could not have predicted THAT, but both are showing lots of neutrals, interesting layers, and some really artful pieces for fall and winter. Just goes to show that inspiration is everywhere.

And yes, that is basically a tweed sweatshirt. Mined from the vast Twice selection. I love it a whole bunch.

Oh, Birkenstocks. I wore you for all of high school and college, destroyed my single brown pair with years of wear and abuse, and wrote you off as a shoe of my past. And now you are trendy. Like Vogue trendy. And when I found myself in need of a pair of on-your-feet-for-eight-hours comfy black sandals, I figured hey. Why not? This Gizeh style is a little sleeker looking than the old style Arizonas I wore as a kid, but just as supportive and comfy. And since I fully expect a late summer heat wave – we always get one in September – these will earn their keep before getting shelved for the winter.

Anyone wearing Birks for the second time around? Or did you wear them all the way through, trends be damned?

I have a small collection of graphic tees that I absolutely adore, and they’re really getting a workout this summer. You’ve seen my Elvis tee and this is the second appearance for the fabulous Cats Against Catcalls tank from Feminist Apparel, and more will come, I’m sure. Couldn’t say why, but I’m reaching for graphic tees and shorts/skirts instead of dresses on weekends nowadays. They’re just calling to me from their spot in my dresser drawer.

Are you a graphic tee person? Any fun resources to share? Anyone else love to thrift quirky vintage graphic tees? I have one that features a drawing of a robin playing baseball that’s a longtime fave …
