Western with a Twist

November 20, 2017

The temps are all over the place in LA, but when things were cooler last week, I had the pleasure of pulling out some fall favorites. Including this Frye poncho and Frye booties. Both have a Western vibe, which I think we’ll be seeing a lot of this fall. I like how this style looks slightly different than something like a cardigan and round-toe booties. It feels fresh for fall, you know? Frye is always great at keeping things classic…

5 Jeans I’m Loving Lately

April 4, 2017

You probably already know, I collect denim. I’m pretty picky about the wash and fit, but I found a couple faves, some of which are under $100! Don’t forget to size up since they arrive pretty stiff. I’m definitely bringing a couple pairs to Mexico with Reid and I, as I love how they look with ruffles and going out tops. A good pair of jeans is like a good friend, bring them everywhere, and treat them well. See more…

Q & A

August 2, 2016

Q & A  1. How is it having a large family in Los Angeles? I think it’s important to know what places, and neighborhoods are more kid friendly etc. Read my post on 5 kid friendly LA. 2.

Madewell Folklore vibes

June 8, 2016

We’re back in LA and school is out. While I have mixed feelings about having all four kids at home, I have to say I’m excited to explore more of the LA area, namely the hills, the zoo, Venice Beach, and Lacy Park for picnics. And to those of you who ask how I keep my white jeans white? I never put them in the dryer. Instead, I leave them on the dry rack and the sun does my bleaching.…

Mastering the Cozy Look

May 10, 2016

     LA has been feeling a lot like NYC lately and I’m not complaining. The days are cool-ish, slightly overcast, and oh-so-cozy. I’ll take any excuse to layer – preferably with a sweatshirt dress and leather jacket. Both of which work for date night. I’m all about an effortless (i.e. 5 minute) look because life is busy and once that sitter is through the door, so am I. I know I said “cozy” … but definitely try and stay away…
