Fave Denim Frays

April 17, 2016

It’s no secret I love all things denim. And denim that is frayed is, well, you know, a major bonus. This top has been sold out and now it is back in stock! Just wanted to let you know first. Now, back to getting ready for the Monday rush after a short getaway to Palm Springs. Which was a little crazy but well worth the adventure. What did you do this weekend, any adventures?  XO top JOA  /jeans TOPSHOP…

{fashion} SIXT cars

November 7, 2015

   It was one of those quick trips to LA that is always a whirlwind. Work and pleasure mingled in meetings, coffee and ice cream breaks. Fortunately, SIXT made it easy getting around. Such an awesome array of luxury vehicles! While the requested convertible wasn’t available, we kind of fell in love with our Audi, and loved the smooth ride and Sixt’s great staff. Despite the hard roof, it was a great ride to get us swiftly from Los Feliz…

October 13, 2015

  The one and done fall must have is really just a simple jumpsuit. Here I’m loving it in black and a tomato red. Since most are nervous about it looking like a straight jacket, I paired it with a heel and a belt for shape.

October 11, 2015

  While I wouldn’t advise settling up a tipi on a windy day, it’s a great way to get my crew excited. The kiddos are not normally fans of pictures, and standing still or smiling on cue is not their cup of tea. However, when we asked them after church if they wanted to go on an adventure in the woods with binoculars and a tipi, they were all in. And it didn’t even involve snacks. This tipi from Knight Raven was…

October 10, 2015

The coziest sweater vest! Beautiful brunch at C Chicago Our date had a bit of a rough start. First, I failed to feed the street meter and I got slapped with a parking ticket. Then the hubs sliced into a parked Hyundai, and by the time that was all said and done, we were late. Not the best way to kick-off the much anticipated date. Thankfully, a melon and lemon verbena shot was right around the corner, and there is very…
