#girlboss(es) 3 - Ms. Kimberly O'Hare

It's Fabulous Female Friday again!!

Woo! Happy Friday, everyone!

I hope you have fun weekend plans... and that they involve reading my blog... thinking about when you'd like to go shopping with me... and/or have me go through your closet with you!

Anyway, this post features another one of my closest friends, Ms. Kimberly O'Hare. Kim and I met in college, after I transferred to The College of New Jersey. She is by far one of the best musicians I have ever had the pleasure of performing with, and I am always honored when she asks for my opinion regarding her playing. With some of my girl friends, we like to use the term "broad" to refer to each other... and by refer to each other, I mean, they put up with me referring to them as a broad (tough broad, classy broad, etc.) Kim is definitely a "tough broad", and that's one of the many things I love about her.

Heat Wave: Summer 2016 Style

When it seems like the entire country is experiencing a heat wave, it's important to stay cool (and look cool). A lightweight dress like this one allows you to feel a breeze (if there is one!), rather than wearing something that fits closer to the body.

Salt & Stone

When we went to Kennett Square, PA, we came across this adorable store, called "Salt & Stone" (I just realized now that I think I have a thing for places called "Salt & ______", considering my favorite ice cream is from Salt & Straw).

Winners for the Free Session!

I already posted this on Facebook, but just in case it doesn't show up in your feed, and you're dying to know who won... the winners are... Melissa Hooper and Vincent Johnson!! Congratulations, guys! I cannot wait to set up a date for our session! I will post pictures of how amazing they look in a blog post here, so that you all can see how much fun we had!

If any of you would still like to schedule a "not makeover, makeover", message me!! It's $50/hour, and most sessions are only a few hours. We'll go shopping together. I'll help you pick out outfits that you feel incredible in and are practical for your lifestyle. We'll pick out accessories and shoes to complete your outfit. Then, for my ladies, we will have some fun with a little hair and makeup! I'll have you get dressed in your favorite new outfit, and we'll take some pictures!

The whole time we're together, I will be teaching you about why things work (in regard to fashion/style). We'll talk about all the different ways you can wear your new pieces, and pair them with your current wardrobe.

We will have fun together (I promise), and my current clients can attest to that!

Congrats again, Melissa and Vinny! The rest of you, I hope to hear from you all soon! Enjoy your weekend!!

Kennett Square!

Today, my husband, Tony and I got to explore Kennett Square, PA! We started our afternoon by having a glorious lunch at Talula's Table. We shared mushroom risotto, mushroom mac and cheese, and a soba noodle salad. Holy cow, the mac and cheese was so good!

The not makeover, makeover

The term "makeover" always sounds a little extreme with a hint of excitement and a bit of fear. A makeover gives us visions of different TV shows that we may have seen where an outdated kitchen gets completely gutted and redone with a new open feel, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and brand new cabinets. The word "makeover" implies that whatever is getting "made over", was pretty awful to start and was in desperate need of improvement.

That's why I'm not using the term, "makeover" to describe how I help my clients. I won't completely change you, because most of you don't need a dramatic change. Even when I work with my clients in a "closet makeover", they will all tell you that it does not involve me going through your closet and throwing everything away (not even close). I am always honest, so I will tell you when something looks amazing on you, and when it's time to get rid of something, because it's not doing anything for you.

#girlboss(es) - Dr. Patricia Sullivan

#girlboss #lifegoals

For me, it's more like #girlboss = #lifegoals. I never thought that I would ever write a sentence with that many hashtags in it, but in this situation, it seemed fitting.

I have always been incredibly fortunate to have so many amazing female role models in my life (my mom and my sister especially). In these #girlboss posts that I will be sharing with you every Friday for "Fabulous Female Friday", I am focusing on those women, who are their own bosses or working to become a boss in their field.

Summer Style Post Surgery!

I went shopping with my mom this week at Anthropologie, and thanks to her, I found this super soft chambray romper! Just like dresses and jumpsuits, rompers are a perfect, easy, summer "go to". The "one piece factor" can be so helpful, when you're trying to get dressed quickly and get out the door, but still look stylish!
