Happy St. Patty’s Day! We had a massive snowstorm this week and Marin was home sick so it was not as productive as I had hoped. We did have some fun in the snow. On the work front we’re doing a little site refresh. We have a lot more content on the blog these days and I want to make sure it’s easy to find and navigate. I’ve had tons of requests to do more capsule wardrobes, and I have a bunch planned over the next few weeks/months which I’m really excited about. Wishing you all a great weekend, lots of good links this week!
Here’s the best of the week…
