Wash your hands. With soap. Often. This isn’t preschool. We shouldn’t have to remind you to use warm, soapy water and sing Happy Birthday twice. Pick out your clothes with God in mind. You don’t need to impress anyone else.

I’m supposed to write about fashion, but all I can think about is Kobe. Honestly, I was never a Kobe fan. For one thing, I’m a die-hard Celtics fan. I grew up in Boston and everyone knows Boston sports teams are the best (fight me). If you want to talk basketball greats, let’s talk about Larry Bird. Bird’s rivalry with Magic Johnson – the Celtics v. the Lakers – was legendary. So the Lakers were always “the enemy.” Kobe played for the one team I just can’t root for, ever. We were chatting after church this past Sunday, still in our pews, when my son’s friend turned and said Kobe had died. Even if I didn’t root for him, I was shocked.

As I was reviewing the spring shows to cull the season’s latest trends for you, I realized a couple of things. First, there’s nothing really new under the sun.

In each of these instances, I complied. Surprisingly, I happen to like rules. I like order. I like things going the way they’re supposed to. Do I love being told how to dress? Not necessarily. But usually, there is a reason for the regulation.

Style Session No. 11 – Mall Malcontent

I read last week that a second H&M store will open this summer at Fashion Fair Mall. The first one opened at River Park in 2014. I’m not a fan of fast fashion and I don’t think I fit the store’s demographic, so I’ve only been in the River Park store a handful of times. But it must be doing well if they’re opening a second location.

Style Session No. 8 – Trending Worldwide

  I have a love/hate relationship with trends. Mostly I hate them, but once in a while something comes along that fits my personal style, so I make an exception and go along. I love looking through Instagram for fashion inspiration, but I don’t let what other people are wearing dictate what [...]
