thanks to reader Jen for this great suggestion. i don't claim to be an expert on this topic but i do have a good friend who is. she has passed on so many gems that i can't thank her enough. it's one of those things that you don't realize simply rolling up your sleeves can add a little chic, until she shows you.
i felt really weird posting this so please please please be kind. you get to see my room, my closet, and that mess of belts/scarfs/ties/robes/buckles hanging from the back of my closet door. and something about having to step on a stool so you could see the lower half of my body brought me back to 2nd grade (i had a teacher reprimand me for not standing up, and was then apologetic because she realized i WAS standing)
have i told you guys lately that i love you? because i do.
