colorful family photos

You guys know I am a huge fan of sales, but I am (clearly) a WAY bigger fan of family. This Black Friday, I’ll be far from the stores and my phone/laptop in an effort to maximize my time with the cool folks above. I definitely encourage you to do the same, but if you’re […]

cool baby swaddles

Both of our kids have been swaddled since day one and believe me when I say, we’ve tried just about everything to keep them warm and cozy. What I like about Buttermilk Babies swaddles is that while they’re great for swaddling, they can be used for so much more. (Practicality is a must when you […]

bandana scarf with sweater dress

I walk in to a luxurious clothing store, admire everything and promptly send myself out.  That’s my M.O.  And while it’s smart to invest in a quality wardrobe made up of timeless pieces (like a black cashmere dress from Vince, for example), this happens slowly and often with the help of some amazing deals.  Luckily, […]

vonbon dresses insta

I welcome the challenge of finding stylish clothes that the kids can play in. I discovered Vonbon on Instagram and pretty much became obsessed with their unique black and white patterns. All of their pieces are classically trendy so I was surprised to discover that the entire collection is made with sustainability in mind. Vonbon uses […]

How to use a Beachwaver on short hair

I’m seriously obsessed with this BeachwaverTM S1. It gives me better, more ‘undone’ waves than I could accomplish with my curling iron and it has cut my hairstyling time in half. For those of you with shoulder length hair, this tool works wonderfully. The diagram above shows exactly how I do it, but if you’re […]

Frayed denim culottes

My husband asked if I was drunk when I bought these pants. Whaaaattt? Frayed, cropped, denim culottes are a ‘sotally tober’ purchase. Am I right? Sure, they are not the norm for me, but I wanted to try the trend and these cropped culottes are just right for those looking to try something new without the […]

St Ives pear lotion review

Hey guys, it’s been awhile! I was MIA last week because I was in Arizona visiting friends and family. Today’s post couldn’t come at a better time, because  traveling always dries my skin out especially when I’m traveling to the desert! So let’s talk skincare… St. Ives recently sent me a beautiful box of St. Ives […]

versatile LBD

You can probably never have too many LBDs, but if in the interest of simplifying; you need at least two LBDs. One dress should be dressy — fit for a date night or your office holiday party. The second should be casual. I like this dress because it’s casual enough to wear with sneakers on […]

belted poncho - fall outfits

Each Fall, I feel as though I were meant to live in a cooler climate.  Bombarded with images of beautifully layered outfits, capes and ponchos, it’s hard not to try the trend no matter how impractical ($1400 keychains flying off the shelves are proof of that — but they are adorable, right?). So how do you […]
