Once, I had a cognac leather moto and it fit me really strangely. Since I’d spent some bucks on it, I kept it for several years before finally accepting that the long arms and odd shoulders were always going to bug me, and that tailoring was going to be costly and risky. So I put it on consignment. And then this fall happened and about a dozen outfits came to mind that would’ve looked perfect with a cognac leather jacket, so I began the search for a replacement. But it took me until very recently to find and nab this one on eBay. It’s from Victoria’s Secret originally (who knew?) and is just the color I wanted – that surprisingly hard to find ruddy reddy brown. Also love that it’s somewhere between a blazer and a jacket, so ideal for indoor wintry wear. Jackpot. read more

The weather around here has been a real mixed bag lately, with freezing sleet followed by mild sunshine. However, since they’re predicting 3-5″ of snow for tomorrow (grrrooooan), I think it’s about time I squeezed in my final bare-legged outfits for the season and resigned myself to the oncoming winter. read more

I wore this to the final workshop and graduation celebration for the women’s leadership program I’ve been working on all year. I’ll be sharing more about the program with you in coming weeks, and am so excited to be continuing my work on this important project. We were trapped in a basement conference room for nearly 8 hours wrapping up our last workshop, but hardly noticed. It’s such inspiring and invigorating work. read more
