Skirting Around

I’ve been turning to dresses a lot this summer because they can make getting dressed extremely easy, but skirts have sure been tempting me lately. There’s always the classic mini which, despite its name, does not require that you bare more than you’re comfortable with. Many mini’s while short, can also remain classy and cute. […]

High Five for Friday

When you’re home with children during the summer there’s a fine line between keeping their schedules busy and having them utter the words “I’m bored”. This happened to be a week where swimming lessons, soccer lessons and sports camp fell into the same week. Needless to say, my kids were anything but bored. Even Madelyn, […]

Denim Vest

I’ve been wanting to jump on the denim vest train for a while now. I’m not quite sure why it took me so long to finally grab one. Maybe it’s because it took me forever to find a denim jacket that I loved and I felt it may be the same case with a vest? […]

Chocolate Whiskey Bundt Cake

You read that correctly, chocolate and whiskey. Oh and I can’t forget the caramel whiskey sauce that’s drizzled over top of it. Ahh-mazing. I wouldn’t call myself a big whiskey drinker, or a whiskey drinker at all for that matter, but the flavor that it gives to this decadent dessert is out of this world. […]

Getting Festive

Do you guys realize that July 4th is next week?! It creeps up on me every single year. When it comes to dressing for this festive occasion, it’s often easy to turn to your own closet and mix some pieces you may not otherwise pair together. For myself, I don’t force the use of red, […]

White on White

Daring, right? Especially with two young ones, but somehow I managed to pull it off! And for the crispness of this outfit, it was worth it. Shortly after I purchased this top, my sister was flipping through a magazine and pointed out a white on white outfit and I thought ‘yes’! I put all thoughts […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, friends! It’s been one crazy week for me, full of wonderful happenings and fabulous people. Part of my week was spent in NY, as you know, and thankfully my sister was able to tag along. We had such a great time together and I was happy to have her aid while navigating through […]

Baby Blue

Versatility is a big factor when I consider clothing purchases. When a dress that can be worn with heels, sandals or as a tunic comes my way, and it’s in the softest shade of blue nonetheless, I’m basically sold. I was invited to a CAbi party (personal shopping via homeshows in case you’re unfamiliar) by […]

Pardon my absence…

 (photo credit)  I was trying to be Super Woman and have all of my posts lined up for this week while I am out of town, but alas it did not happen. I may or may not be able to get my act together for the rest of the week, you’ll just have to check […]

To Birk or Not?

Birkenstocks are back in full force and I can’t get over the array of colors and styles that are now available. They are certainly not limited to the boring shades of brown I sported in high school, that’s for sure. I’ve been watching them grow again in popularity, but I continue to put them in […]
