A Classic Menswear Silhouette

When you wear an outfit that feels quintessentially, undeniably, you, it feels fantastic.  Menswear has been a longtime favorite of mine for everyday wear.  When I was teaching, one of my go-to looks was the dress shirt and tie combo.  Definitely unexpected on a female, but with a pair of heels, you tell the world (and more importantly, yourself) that you have exactly what it takes to get the job done.

I have always been drawn to the fabrics, tones, and shapes of menswear. I love the streamlined simplicity of a neatly tailored jacket, and the way that light layers sensibly transition into the cooler months. Years ago, someone dear passed away and willed me an incredible collection of neckties. It's always with a nostalgic fondness that I put together a look that incorporates one of them.
