1. The Navy Uniform

Modern classics. Barbara styles the Lena Sweater with the Deanne Pants. Photo by Daphne Youree Photography.



Since I pretty much like a "uniform" for work, this new collection filled with navy basics is made for me and all my colorful and oversized jewelry.  It's been nice to have some new things to spruce up my work outfits since I'm back in the office most of the time now.







All about the knits with our favorite Lena Sweater.



I wear the Lena sweater all the time. I’ll pair it with dark jeans or a matching pair of navy pants.







The pant you need (trust us) – the Deanne Pant.



I love the navy Deanne pants and they are fantastic. I love them so much I got them in ivory too!







The jacket we’re coveting for now, for later. Meet: the Vista Jacket.


I have this jacket in white and denim but am now loving the tan. I like that there are pockets and that you can cinch the waist.

Barbara’s Top Picks To Wear Now, Wear Later

Romantic midis. The Makenna Dress in hydrangea blue and retro chocolate and pink.



It’s so easy and fun to wear this time of year, especially for summer lunches!







Well heeled. Our midsummer sole mate, the Alexa Espadrilles.



I’m coveting these espadrilles—the perfect August shoe.







Classic and colorful. Our signature Lois shirt in lemon zest.



I'm sure it will come as no surprise that the yellow Lois shirt is on my list :).







The Denim Diaries. Be the belle of the blues in our straight leg Manon Jeans.



I'm picky about the fit of my jeans and the Manons are my current fav.







Dress the part in our silk navy Elayne Midi Dress with a relaxed fit and drop shoulder sleeves.



This dress is AMAZING! Silky and so versatile.







The statement belt everyone needs – the Elizabeth Belt.



I’ve lost a little weight recently so I have re-discovered my waist!
