Has it been like 9 months since I posted? Where did time go? Why am I so busy? Well, between turning 40, planning endless birthday / HOA/ PTA/ dinner party events, shuttling my children hither and yon, gaining and losing the same 10 lbs over and over and a nice casual homicide trial…. mama has…
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…
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…
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?
After many long, angry months, the kitchen is done. I baked some bread. Then I ate the bread. Totally worth it.
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.

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