Family Photos 2023

It has been a few years since we had our family pictures taken so I was eager to capture these kids in a moment as they continue to grow up right before my eyes! We may have had to reschedule due to the weather (wind being the main culprit) but I’m so grateful for the […]

Rome, Italy

Last month Jack and I were fortunate to be able to visit Rome for a few quick days. It was in part a work meet-up for Jack and I tagged along as his lucky +1. It’s rare these days that we travel without the kids, but being just the two of us we were able […]

Eyelet Details

There’s something about a bold color to bring an outfit to life. I’ve had these pink trousers for a while now and love pulling them out of my closet, especially during the spring/summer months. I had had my eye on a pretty eyelet top from JCrew but grabbed this one when I saw it in […]

NSale 2023: Top Picks

Each year Nordstrom hosts their Anniversary Sale, temporarily marking down new, fall items for this pre-season sale. There is a lot of inventory to scroll through, but over the years I’ve learned to track down some of the key pieces that are practical to purchase. While I’m not sharing my mens and childrens top picks, […]

Pink + Blue Combo

I love a good pink and blue combo as you cans ee from today’s look. This light-weight, ribbed top from JCrew is different from anything else in my closet and I love the style of it. It comes in a bunch of colorways and although it’s cropped, it’s a great fit to allow for tucking […]

LOFT: New Arrivals

Loft has been filling up with all of their new spring/ summer arrivals! Their website is one that I feel never gives their clothes justice and it’s one store that I am thankful to have locally. I end up trying on pieces that I never would have given a second glance at online! I found […]

Blazer Basics

When I’m looking for a classic, go-to look, I typically reach in my closet for a blazer and let everything else quickly fall into place. Blazers make the perfect jacket for springtime and in the summer, they are a great option when you need to be in air conditioned spaces. I love pairing them over […]

Spring Break 2023: Universal Orlando

This year we spent Spring Break with the kids visiting Universal in Orlando, FL and we had a blast! The weather was perfection with a high in the low to mid 80’s everyday which we gratefully embraced. We stayed on-site at the Loews Portofino Bay Hotel which is one of their premiere hotels. One of […]

Two Toned

I have a funny feeling I’m going to be on the colorful trouser train for the foreseeable future! There’s something about brightening up these dreary months (at least for those of us in the north) with our wardrobe that makes things a bit more cheerful. You may have seen me wear these same pants last […]
