DENIAL

Sol Reflection

These are my very favorite denim shorts, converted from Lucky Brand jeans after years of wear. They have ZERO STRETCH and that’s how I like my cut-offs (stretchy shorts stick to your thighs and my gams need room to move!). Some years they’d fit just right and some years they hung off my hips. But … Read More

I Had a Touch of Cancer

Sol Reflection

I did. I had a little touch of cancer. And I say “a little touch,” because I know how cancer goes for some people and it didn’t go that way for me. Of course it was awful in many ways. I received the diagnosis 2 weeks after quitting a cushy federal government job with great … Read More

The new year started with a bang as a bomb cyclone and a rash of cold & flu rolled through town leaving us all a bit frazzled, especially since we were hoping we had left all the bad in 2017. But on one of those remarkably frigid days in early January, a powerful woman and a group of … Read More

Let Nature Be Your Guide

Sol Reflection, Style

Over the past few weeks I have felt called to sit outside watching the simplicity of the leaves, listening to the songs of the birds and breathing in the crisp mountain air. I have had a range of emotions post-election and I can’t think of a better place to gain peace and clarity than on the … Read More

Finding a Theme and Creating a Look

Stretch Your Style, Style

Here’s a recent photo of me at our dear friends Abby and McGregor’s wedding. You may be wondering how I came up with this outfit or from where the inspiration arrived. Or, you may be saying something like, “Sure, it looks good, but I could never pull it off.” Trust me, I questioned it myself, and had my own … Read More
