I’m obsessed with circles and curves. I love soft, gentle lines. Peter pan collars, drapey fabrics, gentle gathers, and (of course) scalloped hems.

My latest style obsession? Fingerless gloves. A friend recently gave me this handmade pair. They’re perfect with everything, especially in this light jacket weather we’ve been having up until today’s snow storm. I’ve barely stopped wearing them since I got them!
