Life has been moving at an uncomfortably hectic pace lately.  So last Friday, I packed up the car and the kids and we drove to Austin for the weekend to meet up with my husband who is there on business.

It was so refreshing just to get away from all of the responsibilities, sports practices and household duties for a few days to recharge our batteries and enjoy some family time.  We shopped, swam, toured the state capitol and ate loads of yummy food.  Oh and took outfit pics downtown, of course.  🙂


It’s Your Turn: What’s your favorite way to recharge when you’re feeling maxed out?

Ask Sarah | Style my Maxi Skirt for Winter

Ask Sarah | Style my Maxi Skirt for Winter


Meet Sarah of Sarah Hulbert Style!  She’s my guest stylist today and an interior decorator and wardrobe consultant with an eye for color like none other.

And I just knew she would know exactly what to do with my wardrobe problem child…my striped maxi skirt.

I love this skirt and wore it a lot last summer, usually paired up like this.

When cooler temps arrived, I wasn’t sure what to do with it.  So it’s been hanging in my closet ever since.  Time to call in the expert!

Dear Sarah – I have this striped maxi skirt that I have NO idea how to style for winter.  Can you please help me?  Eternally grateful – Alison

And here’s what she came up with.

Get Your Sarah Hulbert Style On


Wow, where do I start?  I absolutely LOVE the fun pops of color in the jacket, bangles, necklace and clutch.  The denim shirt is genius (and just so happens to be one of my favorite wardrobe pieces).  And the scarf is perfect, every outfit needs a little leopard print.  I love the cognac boots, they winterize this look to a tee.
Thank you SO much Sarah!  I can’t wait to put together my own look using your brilliant outfit inspiration.
