Sarah Stright-Hartley: Houndstooth can add some bite to your wardrobe
When new trends come around, the runways tend to go a bit overboard for us everyday folk. The shows are designed to be a production and with that, they show variations of the trend — in an over-the-top way. So then the question becomes, how will these designers recreate the trends to sell in the stores?
Sarah Stright-Hartley: It's never too early to start thinking about fall fashion
Though we've recently seen temperatures well into the 90's, these last few days have felt much cooler. As someone who likes the cooler temperatures and much prefers fall to summer, I've been enjoying thinking about the fall trends and excited to see what will soon be in stores. So here (and to the right) is a fall preview of the top trends you'll be seeing. I'd love to know which ones you'll be buying in to.
Sarah Stright-Hartley: Want the short story? It’s time to double up
One of the things I tend to look for when buying new clothes is if they can pull double duty. Can I wear it to work and out on the weekend? Can it be casual and dressy? This way it feels like I instantly double my wardrobe and can mix and match clothing much easier.

Sarah Stright-Hartley: Headed to the beach? Cover up in style!
With summer now in full stride, all I can think about is spending my days at a beach or pool. When the weather heats up, nothing but cool water can make me feel like I'm not actually going to melt into a puddle.
Sarah Stright-Hartley: You can be patriotic and fashionable this Independence Day
The Fourth of July happens to be my favorite holiday. There is something about the gathering of people from all over sitting together for hours just waiting for fireworks to light up the sky for a few minutes. The sense of American pride is amazing and I'm always happy to be a part of it. Patriotism runs high, but that doesn't mean you need to wrap yourself in everything red, white and blue.
Sarah Stright-Hartley: ‘With child’ doesn’t have to mean without style
Over the past month we've talked about wedding styles for women and wedding styles for men. I didn't want to leave out my pregnant ladies! Dressing for a wedding during the hottest months of the year while you're pregnant can be understandably difficult.
Sarah Stright-Hartley: Summer sandals can go with just about anything
Ah, summer! The time to relax on the beach, sun yourself and attend many barbecues. And also the time to free your feet from the confines of the past several months being bundled up in boots and closed-toe shoes.
Sarah Stright-Hartley: If your life’s a beach, pack wisely
This week I'm heading off on a much-needed beach vacation. During the vacation, we'll also be standing with my sister and brother-in-law as they renew their vows after 10 years of marriage. The last time my husband and I were on vacation was during our honeymoon in Italy — so, needless to say, this is a very different type of trip, needing very different types of clothes.
