flower power

  While I love florals, I’m not a huge daisy print fan…until this shirt. This Sea top had me swooning- and even more once I tried it on. I’m officially a daisy fan and flower child now. Flower power, indeed. Silk top: Sea via Nordstrom Rack ($40 marked down from approx $300) Skirt: Soprano viaContinue reading “flower power”

bold (in black and white)

bright white and sun spots

A little bit of sun just goes such a long way, right!? It feels like a sigh of relief to have gotten enough rain to make our yard look like the Amazon (but for real, it’s out of control), and then a day full of sunshine. I captured a little on my walk to workContinue reading “bright white and sun spots”

knowing in neon

I recently had lunch with a friend and was discussing confidence and lack thereof sometimes. My friend responded by saying that sometimes the only person that thinks we cannot do something is ourselves. …hmmm. That rang true for me, and I’m guessing, many others. We seem to be the least likely person to feel confident inContinue reading “knowing in neon”

spring has sprung (?!)

Ahhhh, the feeling of warm sun and air on your face! I am out celebrating in a bright white jean coat and springy pastels. Enough said; perhaps spring has officially sprung!

nestled in knits

There are few things, in my book, more cozy than a comfy knitted top and a side of hot cocoa. I mean, toss me a book and a couple of magazines, and I basically won’t leave the house. I’m hoping everyone has a good (and cozy) rest of the week! Sweater: Banana Republic ($24 markedContinue reading “nestled in knits”

ready in red (for spring)

Well, now that the holidays have passed, I’m ready for spring! Ha! No such luck, I suppose. So, I’m channeling spring in florals mixed in with a little (lot) festive winter reds. There’s no rhyme or reason to the look…which is perhaps why I love it so! “Who in the world am I? Ah, that’sContinue reading “ready in red (for spring)”

just faux fun

I couldn’t help it, readers! I LOVE a fashion pun! But, for real, the real deal, these faux fur shoes are just too fun. And everyone has amazing feedback to fur on shoes, from “those remind me of a muppet…in a good way!” to “those just look like a party…so festive!” To me, they feltContinue reading “just faux fun”
