When life gives you lemons get some vodka

I’ve had a bitch of a week at work and finally got to the gym this morning (Yea!) and when I got to the gym realized I had left my work clothes at home (Boo!) and had only a sports bra and leggings.  To wear to court (Fuck!).   Luckily Target opens at 8am so…

mom’s vacation

A Mom on vacation is still a Mom. Wearing multiple layers and cooking in Iceland. The sun has already gone down at 4pm– and it didn’t come up until 10am. Brrrrr. I’m not making puffin, if you’re wondering….

Grocery store is not code for ‘wear sweatpants’

My rants against the slobbification of America are legendary. Flip flops are for the beach. Fleece pants are for being in your house with a cold. Oversized cartoon tee shirts are for never. see? Buying Halloween swag and some milk while not looking like I live in a van. Blouse, Ella Moss, velvet blazer I’ve…

We don’t wear gowns enough and other deep thoughts

today is my 10th wedding anniversary so I pulled the dress out of storage and wore it to pick the husband up at the airport. 1. We don’t wear gowns enough. Gowns are fucking great. 2. My dress still fits #winning 3. If you go into the bathroom at Wendy’s near the airport to pee…

Celebrate 

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