Reading Between The Lines

If a new position and job title wasn’t enough to handle, getting some surprising news on the personal front can be a lot to take on all at once.  But like always Harriett impresses me by being calm, collected and steady as they come.  She’s got this, and I must admit she does look pretty together in her latest outfit.  Another in her growing collection of fun and theatrically bold skater dresses, this time in cream with thin, navy blue, horizontal stripes, she told me it reminded her of  sheet music and inspired her all day long.  Next, pretty yet practical, I’m a big fan of these thick heel sandals in chestnut brown.  Made from vegan leather, with a pattern of tiny cutouts, I nicknamed them the perfect “strolling around Tuscany”  shoe.  And if that wasn’t romantic enough, a floral mint satchel with impressionist influences of blush, sky and lavender.  The ideal mix of old fashioned sweetness that can still function as a business tool.  Finally, a bit of charm and comfort finds a way to top it off with Harriet’s pale green, teapot pendant.  I think this outfit makes it clear that Harriet knows exactly who she is and likes herself that way.  For the record Harriet, so do I.

 

Cheerful as a Daisy

Starting a music club and writing new songs has really lifted Harriet’s spirits!  She’s started humming around the office, and her outfit today was so bright and cheerful it was like staring into the sun. Happiness definitely looks good on her, and her mood was perfectly captured with this full skirted sun dress decorated in an abundance of abstract blooms and colors that seriously pop.  I also have the sneaking suspicion she’s picked up my habit of color coordinating with these navy-blue wedges with eye-catching teardrop cutouts. They match not only in shade but also in theme and are perfectly paired with a matching dark blue, boxy bag.  Add to that her sun-kissed blonde hair and just looking at her can instantly lift your spirits.  Then just wait until you hear her sing!
