Midlife Changes | How I Am Trying To Keep Up

If there’s one thing we can all be assured of, it’s change. I find this to be glaringly true in my current midlife season. In fact, I could almost be convinced that little gnomes of change worked tirelessly to stack tons of “changing stuff” at the door to age 53…just […]

It has been a while since I shared a post on what I really wore. So today, I thought I would focus on an outfit with gaucho pants. I have ended up with several pair of gaucho pants because they are easy, cool, and figure-flattering. I don’t think I am […]

Election 2020, pick a side
