Thank you to everyone who submitted questions for this month’s Q&A! I actually had so many requests that I couldn’t fit them all into one post – so, I plan to get to the others later in the month. If you have a question that you would like answered relating to fashion, beauty, health, skin care, home decor, meals, marriage or parenting, you can email me directly and I will add it to next month’s list!
1) I did a closet purge at the beginning of the season & realized that I have a serious lack of dresses in my fall wardrobe. The problem is that it’s getting colder now & I’m having a hard time finding dresses with long sleeves. Could you suggest some casual knit styles & dressier options?
I definitely have a similar problem – I always seem to wear less dresses this time of year because I get cold so easily! Below I’ve rounded up some affordable fall styles for you in different silhouettes, colors & prints:
2) I’m in desperate need of some new pajamas for the fall/winter & this year I’d really like to get a matching set instead of just wearing plaid flannel pants with an old t-shirt. I’d love to see your budget-friendly recommendations!
If there’s one thing that I have been known to stockpile, it’s pajamas (just ask my husband!). In fact, I just ordered the best flannel pajamas here & here that I can’t wait to cozy up by the fire in (the red plaid is perfect for the holidays!) I wasn’t sure exactly which style you were looking for, so I’ve included some soft knit options and some more sophisticated sets as well. Here are a few of my favorite styles for the cold weather months:
3) I’ve been a small business owner for a few years & I just hired 3 amazing women to help me out with my operations. I’d like to gift them with planners for the coming year so we can stay organized as a team.
First of all, congrats on hiring your first employees – I love hearing about women-run businesses that are succeeding! Thankfully, stores are just starting to roll out new planners for 2018, so there are lots of pretty styles to choose from. Here are some of my top picks:
4) I feel like a lot of my workwear staples are looking really dated & I’d like to replace them with more sophisticated styles. Can you share some office-appropriate outfits featuring separates that I can mix & match for a modern feel?
ONE: Wrap Sweater + Bouclé Skirt // TWO: V-Neck Blouse + Belt + Houndstooth Skirt
THREE: Bell Sleeve Top + Scarf + Pencil Skirt // FOUR: Tweed Jacket + Striped Top + Crop Pants
FIVE: Sleeveless Tunic + Striped Shirt + Black Pants // SIX: Cabled Sweater + Peplum Top + Wool Pants
