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…

Why you should shop all the time

First of all, I’ve spent the last two months curled in fetal position due to work stress.  Not good.  While I’ve still be dressing like a Boss, I just didn’t have it in me to take pics and I looked like a sad Zombie Mom/Lawyer.  Grim shit. But it’s fall!  And tights!! This delightful tweed…

Summer Forever

I ‘accidentally ‘ set my OOO message to read I would be back in April.  Oh and I bought this rad hat at the grocery store because beauty’s where you find it right? 

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…. 

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…

Ootd: totally court appropriate tights! 

Getting dressed in January is not fun.  The thrill of getting out sweaters and boots evaporated weeks ago and Spring dresses feel a million years away.  Soooooo….. tights with moons and stars!  It’s the little things right? And look how cute this bow is.  I can’t see it but I know it’s back there somewhere….
