This Week I Love …

Yummie by Heather Thomson leggings.

Every winter I’m asked for quality legging recommendations, and every year I sheepishly admit that I just buy new pairs from Old Navy every couple of years and wear them until they get embarrassingly see-through or pilly. BUT NO MORE! I believe the Yummie by Heather Thomson brand could be the answer.

I ordered my first pair when my beloved sparkly Hue leggings began to wear thin, and they were the Jade style. Got ’em on super sale – I think I paid $20, which is great since they’re pretty darned expensive at full price – and was immediately smitten. The material was thin and stretchy, but fully opaque and very comfortable. The metallic finish was mottled and subtle, which was just what I’d been hoping for. And they’re high-waisted. Hallelujah! read more

Gracey Wears: Bright Flats

Although I have far more neutral shoes in my closet than colored, I am a sucker for brightly colored shoes.  Especially bright flats:

I could have worn black flats with this look, but I just love the bright flats with the printed tunic:

Although, full disclosure, these flats don’t match this tunic; they go.  You see, the flats are berry colored and the tunic has no berry in it:

It has red, it has bright pink and it has blue, but no berry.  But, that’s the magic of bright flats.  They may not match, but they go with everything!* read more

Gracey Wears: Elevated Basics

I am not a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl.  I am, however, an elevated t-shirt and jeans kind of girl:

By wearing variations of basic pieces that fit my colorful personal style, I can make a “classic” look work for me. read more
