Hello, there! I hope you had a great week. We are still recovering from a couple crazy weeks filled with busy schedules and sick little ones. It’s a tough time of year, as all parents and teachers know.

On the corporate front, I have some more travel next week. I have to be in Connecticut, New York, and Massachusetts twice. I have a good mix of meetings, presentations, and after-hours networking. I love having a good mix of activities to keep things interesting.

On the outfit front, I’m loving this casual, classic look. In the dark and dreary winter, I find myself wearing a lot of black. I love how something as simple as a nice black turtleneck can exude sophistication (thanks, Steve Jobs?), especially when paired with statement earrings.

And, this coat has been a favorite for five winter seasons now. My mother bought this for me for Christmas in 2013, and it still gets so much use. It is so thick, warm, and durable. I am a big advocate of investing in high-quality classic staples, and if you live in New England, having high-quality outwear is definitely important.
