High Five for Friday

  Madelyn and myself celebrating my gf’s 30th birthday. 30’s are the best years of our life, right?? Jack is finishing a week long Safari camp today. He was thrilled about me taking this pic. Some new items arrived from Zara this week. Their adult line is always great, but if you haven’t checked out […]

Outfit of the day

Express tank, Gap shorts, LOFT necklace, triangle necklace from Townhouse, Marc Jacobs watch, Adrienne Vittadini shoes I recently picked up these shorts at Gap on sale and couldn’t wait to wear them. I only have a hint of a tan and I know they’ll look even better once I’m a bit more sun-kissed. They are bright, girly and […]

Tick tock

I have mentioned before that I have a slight addiction to watches. They are such a fun accessory to add to an outfit, especially with the variety that is available. From classic metals to leather bands in every color imaginable to stripes and sports inspired, I’ve gathered a few that I’d happily add to my […]


If you don’t know by now, I have a love of sweets and chocolate is often involved. Yesterday I celebrated the birthday of one of my best friends. We share a love for sweets in general, but in particular, Trader Joe’s whoopie pies (or as we in PA know them as gobs). If you have […]

I heart bright denim

Madewell top (old), JCrew factory denim, LOFT scarf, Marc Jacobs watch, Gentle Souls sandals, Ray-ban  aviators I spent this past Saturday afternoon with a dear friend from college. Our afternoons together typically involve food, drinks and some shopping. Perfect, right? She also got to fill in as my photographer, lucky me! I’m a big fan of […]

Week in review

Happy Friday everyone! This week was full of activities with my kiddo’s and a little shopping thrown in (surprise, surprise). I always need to remind myself not to rush decorating a home, but to acquire pieces slowly as I find things I love. This week I found two such pieces which you’ll see below. Madelyn […]

Weekend Wardrobe

Details I know it’s only Thursday, but my week so far has been spent running errands or at the pool. For those of you that work in an office, please don’t think for a second that I’m lounging with my magazines and a drink in my hand. Instead picture me keeping a fearless 12mo old […]

My Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie

Everyone has their version of “the best chocolate chip cookie ever”, right? Since that is obviously disputable, we’ll just to refer to this as “my favorite chocolate chip cookie”, sound good? Here are a few reasons that these have become my fav. First, the size. I can usually go through 2 or 3 regular chocolate […]

Summer Shower Ensembles

It seems that summer has (almost officially) arrived. Along with the sun comes everyone’s share of showers to attend. Sorry if I lost ya on this one guys, but pass it along to your wife/girlfriend/sister/mother! I know it’s tempting to buy new dresses for weddings, but when it comes to showers I typically can’t justify […]

Ombre and Floral Pants

Well, I did it. Although nervous, I took the plunge and am no longer a blonde. The first day I was planning on when I’d be going back to blonde. But as a few days passed, I started recognizing myself again in the mirror and started to embrace this new look. It’s quite a change […]
