Fashion: Shopping Your Closet

A few months back I made the decision to take a break from shopping. I had hit a point where I realized I was consuming far more than I needed – shopping online almost daily. It was gross. So I put the credit cards away and took a “time out”. One thing I thought a… read more

Best Buys: New Shoes

I was recently introduced to this fabulous (and affordable) shoe brand M. Gemi. The company has searched all over Italy and found specialty factories that make products for major brands. They’ve teamed up with them and nurtured the relationships which means quick turnaround times for M.Gemi. It also means they can create and release new styles weekly…. read more

For the Boys: Turq Swimbriefs

I love me a good pair of board shorts at the beach – but I do not love me board shorts that reveal the outline of a man’s package underneath. I’ve yet to buy a pair of Turq swimbriefs but I think I’ll order my husband a pair to try this summer. I figure they’re a… read more

Fashion: In-Between Weather

It’s that funny time of year where the weather perpetually ping-pongs between 55 and 80 degrees. One minute you are peeling off layers and then next you are putting them back on. The best way to beat the schizophrenia is to layer up and be prepared. Here are a few of my favorite finds from recent… read more

Shopping for a Cause: Cabochon Jewelry

  I love beautiful things – whether it be a stunning pair of semi-precious earrings or an open field with lush greens and old trees casting long shadows. This partnership mixes the two. The incredibly talented jewelry designer behind Cabochon Jewelry has generously decided to give 15% of all proceeds at her trunk show this… read more

Fashion Forward: JCrew Fall 2015

Fashion is a funny business. It’s always focused on the future. Last week thousands of people flocked to New York City for Fashion Week to view the collections for fall of next year. We’re barely making it through winter (brrrrrr) so it’s hard to get excited about fashion for the future fall. That being said… read more

Style: Getting Cozy

There is nothing better than cozy clothes – especially as the winter snow starts to really accumulate (maybe not as much as predicted but still plenty!). In the last few days it has come to my attention that my wardrobe is completely ill-equipped for the frigid weather that has arrived. You’d think as a weekend… read more

Dreaming of a White Christmas…

With rain in the forecast my dreams of a white Christmas seem farfetched. Nonetheless we’ll be drinking egg nog and listening to carols for the rest of the week. Good luck with all that wrapping. May your week be peaceful and bright! images: Pinterest

A Very Thankful Thanksgiving

This year is doubly sweet in our household as we all feel incredibly thankful for the arrival of our sweet baby John. There is nothing like a healthy baby to help you put life in perspective and really focus on what matters. Once the turkey is gone and the last pie plate has been scraped… read more

Velvet Tote

I’ve been told that by the third child attempting to keep an organized “diaper bag” is useless. Some wipes, a pacifier, and a few diapers thrown in your purse and you are set for kid #3. I am thinking that one of these Velvet Tote Bags would be ideal for holding my usual staples like… read more
