This thrifted skirt has been a summer favorite for years. I just love the unexpectedly light, bright colors in that tartan and the swishy silk construction. I wore it twice in recent weeks, keeping the same jewelry in both outfits and swapping tops, bags, and shoes. This first was worn on a recent muggy day of meetings and writing at home. And that top is navy, I SWEAR, just like the navy in the skirt. read more

I wore this mix of jewel tones to the recent Unlikely Entrepreneurs event, where the talented and visionary Nancy Rosenbaum interviewed me about my circuitous and odd career path.

After much planning, organizing, and fundraising, we launched the Leaders of Today and Tomorrow program year a few weeks ago, and I wore this to welcome our mentors and fellows to our very first workshop. I love wearing red to our workshops because it’s such a bold and powerful color, and decided to do a bright red and burgundy mix to keep it classic. The workshop was a great success, and we’re already gearing up for our next one! read more
