    Outfit: Peaceful park in Porto

    Outfit details: Anthropologie skirt (old) Banana Republic top (similar) Modcloth sandals (similar) White gold earrings (from my mother) I love to travel, and this wanderlust often necessitates traveling alone (as David will have work or we’re too poor to fly both of us somewhere). I don’t mind being a solo traveler, though getting pictures of oneself is always a bit of a challenge, usually resulting in some awkwardly-framed, slightly out of focus snapshots taken by well-meaning fellow tourists.

It wasn’t quite hot yet, so this outfit was the perfect balance of being covered enough to keep me warm and light and airy enough to keep me ventilated. I love a full-skirt, and this is the…

    Outfit: Flowers in the city

    Photos: David Potter Outfit details: old Anthropologie blouse old Anthropologie skirt Kate Spade purse (similar) Anthropologie earrings Vince Camuto sunglasses old Seychelles heels (similar) old Anthropologie cardigan I’m a little obsessed with the mixed print combination of floral and stripes, as evidenced by another floral-striped number. I really adore this outfit, which I’ve dressed up here with heels (as we were off to an art show), but I normally wear with just a pair of flats. As much as I’d love to, I don’t normally…
