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, […]

Target Target Target

Recently, Erinn and I made a friends date to go to Target.  We were a little over our marital, parental, and professional obligations, so we determined that the best therapy for our woes was retail in nature.  Besides, now that they’re redoing most of the Targets to feel like swanky department stores, we had to […]

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, […]

Pretty in Pink

It was a right of passage for every girl growing up in the 80s and 90s-the obligatory viewing of “Pretty in Pink”.  From the first frame when Molly Ringwald steps onto the screen in her signature color, my love affair with this fiery, red-head, pink-donning, brat-packer began. I imagined myself just like Andi in the […]

Juxtaposition: Our Fave Literary (and Style) Device

We’re not trying to get all didactic or anything here, but English teachers can’t resist talking about juxtaposition.  It’s certainly our most favorite literary device, if not all-time favorite word in the English language. For a quick lesson, juxtaposition is placing two things near each other for a contrasting effect.  Like Garrett’s Popcorn, cheesy cheddar […]

Shopping With Friends

It’s no secret that MB and I like to shop. In stores. In cyberspace. In our dreams. Shopping is one of favorite pastimes, but I’ll admit that I usually like my shopping to be a solitary act. It’s a time where I can move at my own pace and try on pieces without judgement. But […]

Back to School: A Week’s Worth of Teacher Style

Even though we are still fully in denial that the summer has come to an end (and subsequently our maternity leaves as well)), there’s nothing we love more than playing around with fashion. For me, teaching calls on my creative side daily, but I also love that this job gives me the freedom to get […]

My First Born

We’ve always had a tumultuous relationship. Even in utero he was a stubborn one. He sat straight up, refusing to turn down. That should have been my first signal that he would have a mind of his own, choosing his own path, not bending to the will of others (and by others, I mean me). […]
