I guess we’re grownups now.

In my mind, I am 19 years old.  Forever.  Smart, beautiful, effortlessly thin.  Decisions are limited to: what should I wear (answer: tube top)?  Should I make out with that bartender (answer: no but you will)?  Will a degree in Medieval History open a ton of doors (answer: hysterical laughter)?   Photographs from college preserve 19…

Celebrate 

After many long, angry months, the kitchen is done.  I baked some bread.  Then I ate the bread.  Totally worth it. 

TAKE ALL MY MONEY

During my weekly troll of favorite sites, I came across the most insane, perfect, WTF is it skirt at Jcrew.com It’s like a western-Gilded Age- cake topper with pink polka dot tulle.  If I had $1000 laying around, this would be obvious best use of said money.

Funday w shorties

Easter is the perfect day for matching Victoria Beckham for Target dresses, with matching rose for momma.  I used to mercilessly mock the IDEA of matching outfits, but when shown these dresses with freaking bunnies on the collars, I gave in.  Totally worth it. 

You can’t be sad on a swing 

Everything is still generally terrible (don’t read the news, ever) but it’s spring and there’s flowers and a swing set.  This flamenco-dancer sparkle day skirt doesn’t hurt either…. 

Heels + grass = suburban Godzilla lady 

After work (yes I wore a cardigan with the dress in court,  I’m not a heathen!) I was in my yard looking for tulips like one does.  My new Alexander Wang heels are now muddy but I have this awesome shot where I look like I’m going to go eat some villagers.   

Meow Wolf 

Spring break 2017 is a far cry from, say, Spring Break 2000.  Both involved some real weird shit- the 2000 version was a beer bong and possibly homicidal pizza delivery man ( long story).  In 2017, we have a visit to Meow Wolf,  an multiverse art installation with eyeball trees and refrigerators that lead to…

On Wednesdays We (Still) Wear Pink 

Lurking in my aging body beats the heart of the girl who made ‘fashion violation’ tickets with her bitchy friends and gave them out in high school.  Mean girls forever!  

Thundersnow!!!

Angry gods bidding February goodbye with some Colorado Thundersnow??? Fight back with glittery sunglasses and some BONKERS high heeled rubber and neoprene Sorel boots. 

Like mother like daughter 

If you ever wonder about nurture v nature, ponder this candid shot of Eleanor and I. Basically the same person.   Except my outfit was more expensive. 

Winter, Interrupted 

Here in Colorado we have two seasons.  Summer consists of July and August.  It’s hot.  The other ten months, well, you never know.   I’m celebrating the 70 deg weather by saying ‘screw you February’ in an aggressively yellow dress. 

OOTD: Outlander Dreaming

If you’ve seen Outlander and were able to focus on anything other than how effing gorgeous Jamie is, you probably noticed that the clothes are also amazing. Although I prefer my Jamie without them, but whatevs. This outfit makes me feel like Claire, mixing a little 1940’s skirt and blouse action with a Versailles-worthy velvet blazer…
