IN THE TRENCHES
Nothing says ‘spring’ like a classic trench coat. I look forward to shedding my puffy winter coat and trading it in for a timeless trench during the crisp spring days ahead. The best part about a trench coat? Knowing that it doesn’t matter what you layer underneath because the coat says it all… timeless chic. It’s […]
30TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION
I celebrated a big birthday in February and, although I am a little late, I wanted to share the details. FMK hosted the celebration for me at Brooklyn Winery. They have the cutest private rooms and handle all the set up, decorations, food and drinks… what more could a husband ask for?! Because a lot […]
I am still remixing my favorite basics, I hope you aren’t tired of them yet! Speaking of, the little bug preventing you from being able to leave comments has been fixed! I give you permission to tell me you are tired of all the stripes seen around here lately. Happy almost Friday! Thanks for reading […]

STRIPES ON STRIPES
Today I am channeling warmer weather and hoping mother nature follows along. If you haven’t noticed from here & here, stripes have become my new neutral. The pattern goes with practically everything, including itself. This whole outfit is really just layering on some of my favorite basics. These jeans and this chambray shirt make an […]

GUESS is bringing back some of their iconic heritage trend setting pieces that made the brand famous in 1981. My two favorites? This vintage inspired denim jacket to wear over all my spring dresses before the temperatures get warm enough to go bare shoulders and a classic pair of cut off shorts to pack for the beach. What’s your favorite original piece?

Since transitioning from working in the corporate fashion industry to becoming a full-time blogger and stay at home mom, I am discovering new things about myself and my working style every day. I thought I would love working from home in my pjs, but I have found that I miss getting dressed up for the office.
It is a balancing act trying to give Knox everything he needs and still finding time to respond to emails in a timely manner, create daily content, and keep up with the more administrative task that come with running your own business (and being the only employee). I am still trying to figure it all out, but one thing that seems to be working is my Wednesday meeting schedule. I try to schedule any meetings, showroom visits, etc. on Wednesday when our babysitter has a free day to spend a few hours with Knox.
I love having this consistent one day a week where I know I can put on my work wardrobe, interact with my peers and feel like my old self again. I would love to hear from other working moms how you balance your time and what you have found works best for you.
