Rose Quartz Accents

I love a white eyelet dress now, just as much as I loved them as a little girl . As it’s no longer against the fashion law to wear white between Labor Day and Memorial Day, I’ll be wearing this one for Easter this year (and well into spring and summer.)  I’m not the fashion […]

Sporty Sneakers

Cardigans are everything – all year round. Still loving all sweaters Athleta (especially their cashmere!), I’m layering up for cold days with silk tank tops, wool cardigans and cashmere scarves. I’m also still wearing leggings as pants and guess-what-who-cares? These fleece leggings (Athleta tags them as tights) are ev-er-e-thang. Warm, comfy, cozy, fleecy, stretchy goodness […]

Day to Night

I have been against elastic waistbands for most of my life (I don’t think I cared either way as a toddler.)  Elastic waist bands are the anti-fit nemesis to tailoring and expensive clothing.  I mean, has anyone seen an elastic waistband on a Chanel skirt before?!  I’d love to stand by my snobbish snubs towards […]

Boho Chic // 5 Tips

Boho-Chic // 5 Tips We moved in late spring last year and this summer finds my family in a new neighborhood, at new schools, and on new sports teams.  This also finds me, as the mother, now feeling the desperate urge to make friends with everyone.  In an attempt to expedite the friendship making process, […]

Warm Cashmere

Winter weather means armfuls of accessories; scarves, hats, gloves, more scarves, and lots of fur-lined everything.  I usually go neutral with my winter weather accessories, choosing light heather grays in cashmere scarves (this one doubles as a warm shawl/wrap!) and black, black, black.  I know the trend right now is Hunter boots in the snow […]

Spring // Fall Layers

I have loved, loved, loved this dress from Shopbop!  I read a meme once that said mentioned something about maxi skirts being likened unto yoga pants – minus the crotch, naturally.  Sign me up lol!  Shopbop has maybe like, two sales per year and today kicked off their Tiered sale (the more you spend, the […]

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 […]

Home Opener // MLB

I’ll be 100% honest: The Kansas City Royals haven’t been on my radar since the 80s (yes, I am that young – wink); Backtrack to 2014, when suddenly they were in the World Series. My closet was full of royal blue (one of my favorite colors to wear) but nothing that was “game-wear” approved because […]

Red Dress // 5 Ways

When friend and blog reader Anna (okay so she’s also my best friend – wink) sent me a link to this Erin Fetherston chiffon dress, I knew my budget was in trouble.  I’d just started researching beauty trends, florals are huge this spring (I feel like that’s always a duh! spring florals!) and with KCFW […]

Red + Lavender // KCFW

What goes better with a red dress than a nude lip and dark eye (two of Ulta’s top spring beauty trends)?!  Red and lavender, that’s what.  It’s an unusual color combination, but in the right hues, it really works!  I am in love with this Erin Fetherston Chiffon dress, and I cannot lie: I love, […]

Trend // Not Nude Lip

Spring is officially here (I’m typing this while on Spring Break vacation) and just like I’ve cleaned out my closet and filled it with new trends and updated classics, the contents of my vanity drawer need updating as well.  I’m not what I would consider a “high-maintenance” kinda gal.  Life gets busy and sometimes I’m […]

Pastel // 5 Ways

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, PEOPLE® and Real Simple®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #SpringintoMeTime http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV“ I have loved glossy magazines for as long as I can remember.  As a young girl (a budding teenager, desperate for things like boobs and real […]

One Dress // Four Seasons

There is nothing I love more than versatility.  I have a few questions I ask myself when purchasing something new to add to my wardrobe (scroll down to find out how to build your year-round wardrobe at the end of the post!) Case in point?  This TopShop Leopard Dress I snagged at Nordstrom on a […]

Denim on Denim

I’m talking the denim on denim trend, perfect for Spring and five simple tips for mastering it.   I’ve seen the occasional photo pop-up in my Pinterest feed – a perfectly put-together woman, chic-ly (let’s pretend that’s a real word, mkay?) long legs gracefully crossing the street (or the enviable thigh gap – my thighs […]

Day to Night

I love a good pair of sneakers (I think I’m getting old,) as much as the next person, but let’s face it: not all tennis shoes were created equal.  A few years ago, the Mr came home with a brand new pair of the world’s ugliest shoes.  I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw them, […]
