The Grateful Table

One of my favorite memories from visiting Turkey was an incredible dinner we had late one night in Goreme, bohemian style, after exploring the local museum.  It embodied every part of Turkey that I loved – the casual pace, the simplicity, the art in the variety of mismatched décor.  We sat on the patio, in […]

Flarely There

My sister and I had a quick conversation about current trends the other morning.  I claimed that flare and trouser jeans were back in (trouser jeans are my favorite and I love when they come back around on the fashion merry-go-rouond!), le style populaire!  She doubted me, saying that she hasn’t seen anyone wearing them […]

Cocoon Dress

I don’t know about you, but I love these see-and-be-seen events – don’t you hate wearing a great outfit and nobody that’s going to appreciate it gets to see it?  Save it up for KCFW, snap a pic on the red carpet (step-and-repeat, but without the step and sometimes even without the repeat lol!) and […]


The kids are back in school and as the dust settles, I’m sitting in my new home coming to terms with the fact that we have moved.  Yep……..we bought a new house.  We gave our last (it was our first!) home a final paint job – we did a terrible job painting the interior and […]

Little White Dress

Here I am in Rome, in the cutest apartment just meters from St. Peters Basilica, wondering what people in Rome wear in the heat of summer.  Colors, apparently.  Darling leather 1″ heeled sandals.  Silks and linens.  Whites.  It’s increasingly obvious who is Italian and who is a tourist.  I hate looking like a tourist, but […]

‘Swagger’ + a Giveaway

Life seems to be as constantly changing as fashion and it’s trends.  One minute I’m a young girl dreaming of becoming a fashion designer and the next I’m standing in my 11 year-old’s bathroom blinking rapidly as I try to understand the contradicting misnomers he calls “His Hairstyle.”  I’m new to the world of pre-teen […]

Cool Blues

Despite my chub-rub (it’s a real thing, and even skinny people have it!) I will never be dissuaded from wearing skirts in the summer.  Shorts have their spot in the limelight but if maxi skirts are crotchless yoga pants, than this skirt is just another crotchless pair of yoga….shorts.  Also, gray.  If you haven’t noticed, […]

Spring Sweaters

Every spring brings a few bright, sunny days that cause me delusions of grandeur – like the long list of spring cleaning that includes every square inch of my home.  I usually get as far as vacuuming out my kitchen cupboards before I re-file that irritatingly detailed list into a stack of papers that will […]
