Retro at the Railroad || Fall Neutrals with Heart My Closet



I love wearing 40's/50's style dresses in neutral colors for daytime, and especially beige tones with my blonde hair.  Heart My Closet is often my go-to for glamorous daywear, and today's dress is so perfect for anything from running errands, business/office attire, travel, and even to a dinner date!  On this Fall-feeling day at some historical train tracks, I chose matching beige & chocolate accents for styling.  I'll be wearing this chic dress all throughout fall and winter!

Dusty Blue & Tan || Fall Transition with Secrets in Lace



One of the many things I love about styles from the 30's - 50's is the brilliant ways color was used.  Not only were the hue combinations beautifully composed in many outfits, but the actual shades of clothe were woven in beautiful colors that are often hard to find today.  Even further, styling often included pieces throughout the outfits made of the exact same fabric - such as a hat made from the same wool as the dress, shoes, bag, etc.

I try to keep in mind such simple yet thoughtfully intertwined methods in my own looks, and especially this time of year.  Our weather has been the perfect kind for transitional outfits, and I enjoy the challenge of merging summer into fall!  Today's outfit was a daily look to run errands around the city, and I'm absolutely adoring this weather for revisiting all of my favorite fall stockings.  I chose a palette of dusty blue & tan, with my beige Secrets in Lace Vintage Elegance euro stockings.  I love the beige full fashion detail with black seam!

Travel with Mario Badescu || 5 Products I Took On My Business Trip


I recently accompanied my husband on a business trip to Cincinnati, and packed only Mario Badescu products for skincare!  I can always rely on MB to suit my skin needs in any kind of climate or activity.  For this trip, I planned for humid weather, but mainly with long days spent indoors and in air conditioning.  I packed my cute new Bettie Von Sweetz polka dot apron & took a few fun photos in our hotel bathroom!  Beneath my apron, is a lingerie pairing from my favorite, Secrets in Lace

Also included above, some of my favorite MB masks!  Here are some of my current favorites:
