Mad for Plaid

The year is 1995.  By day I was faking my way through the lyrics of “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” and by night I was dreaming of Jordan Catalano.  I stood in front of my dad’s closet and gaped in awe at the glory before me. The ultimate stash of 90’s over-sized flannel plaid button-ups.  He, […]

Best of 2017

This has been a interesting year in a lot of ways, both personally and in the public sphere. A lot has happened that gives us reason to pause. And that has really got me thinking about how easy it is to get caught up in all the negative. This year has been so full of […]

Holiday Looks

Even though holiday season can be stressful..travel, family, money…there is nothing we love more than a chance to get all dressed up and sip some cocktails. And let’s face it, our opportunities to do this are pretty few and far between. This season we are taking full advantage of the fact that we are not […]

The Christmas Card Photo Shoot

I know social media has essentially rendered Christmas cards useless, but it’s a holiday tradition I just can’t give up.  We display our holiday cards proudly as an essential component of the Christmas decor.  To those of you who send me one, know that I absolutely love them and I audibly “ooh” and “ahh” over […]

What’s New in Tights?

I feel like we’re getting to that age where your bare legs start to look weird.  Does anyone else notice this? Like all of a sudden our knees are a little saggy, and our shins bruise for seemingly no reason.  As more and more maxi dresses make their way into my closet during the summer, […]

Baby It’s Cold Outside

It’s that time of year again…temps drop and it’s time to say goodbye for good to warm-weather fashion. I have to say this prospect has me pretty excited. There is something about this season that has me wanting to sip hot chocolate by a fire place all wrapped up in my blanket. And even though […]

The Husbands Take Over

Erinn had the brilliant idea [and I’m using this term loosely] to have the guys dress us for a week as a fashion experiment.  The rules were simple: we were allowed to veto if things didn’t fit, were inappropriate for work, or if their choices were too ridiculously embarrassing for public consumption. Other than that, […]

The Pumpkin Queen

Thus far this season, I’ve consumed half a bottle of pumpkin spice hand soap, one jar of Williams Sonoma pumpkin butter, [if you haven’t tried this, you need to immediately, as it is superior to every other pumpkin butter that exists], one pan of chocolate pumpkin bars, one case of PumpKing beer, and one thousand […]

Soccer Mom 2.0

As parents, my husband and I have always said that it is important for our kids to be part of something-teams, clubs, activities-something, and that they must stick with it. We want my children to have perseverance and learn to not give up when things are always get difficult. So with this notion in our […]
