As I type this the weather has (FINALLY!) rapidly turned over to spring in Connecticut and summer will be here before we know it (YAY!). I have already started wearing my sandals though – as soon it gets around 70 degrees I need to break them out – they are so much more fun than the depressing rain boots I have been wearing lately! For … Continue reading Time for sand(als!)
I have 3 daughters ages 6, 9, and 10. They are my greatest joys! As you can imagine since I love fashion they have grown to love fashion too. They love both picking out their own clothes – their favorite store is Target! – or they love when I surprise them with new outfits in their closets. Let’s face it sometimes I have a hard … Continue reading Girls just want to have fun – and fashion!
Spring, especially in New England, calls for a lightweight jacket (or two, or five in my case lol) for those chilly mornings, rainy days (hello almost every day lately!), or a special date night or girls night out. I have rounded up a few of my favorites, if you would like styling ideas please reach out. Enjoy! Casual coats Sporty Trench coats/rain jackets Blazers Night … Continue reading Spring coats!

Bracelets for me are a fun way to add a unique look to any outfit. I mostly wear costume jewelry I really don’t own many “fancy” bracelets 🙂 So I think most of these today will be casual bracelets but if you would like me to do a separate post on more formal jewelry or bracelets let me know. I love Anthropologie for bracelets. They … Continue reading Bracelets…and scarves
I love jeans. I don’t think you understand how much I love them – I must have over 30 pairs? (don’t tell my husband lol!). Granted probably half don’t fit me anymore (hello 3 kids!) but maybe they might eventually? Either way I love denim and buying new jeans and I am excited to share some of my current favorite picks with you. I don’t … Continue reading Blue Jean Baby – Spring Jeans!
I’ve been getting requests for beach accessories. I thought I would highlight hats and sunglasses first. Left: Ocean Beach, San Diego. Floral cover up, vintage, similar here My favorite beach hats are straw – they’re timeless and breathable so they’re comfortable on a hot day. My absolute favorite beach hat I own is a striped paper hat (above) that I picked up on vacation one … Continue reading Beach Accessories
It feels like a late spring here in Connecticut. We’ve had a few beautiful sunny days but it’s been mostly cloudy, rainy, and a bit chilly! I’m thinking ahead to summertime and going to the beach. We are very lucky to live just a few minutes from the beach and my kids (and I!) love going there to play and hang out with friends. I … Continue reading Is it beach time yet?!
I’ve always had a love affair with stripes. They are classic, timeless and yet always manage to be modern too! One of my favorite things to wear in springtime is a pair of striped pants. I always look for pants that have a little extra detail about them, especially if it’s a nautical detail like a rope tie waist. Most of my outfit is vintage … Continue reading Stripe to it!
I love jumpsuits! It’s such an easy way to quickly put together a whole outfit! They have been trending for a few years now (I actually own about 10!) but I feel like this year they’ve really gotten more mainstream with stores like Target adding their own (cute!) jumpsuits, as well as Anthropologie now offering many choices in their new plus size collection. Today I’m … Continue reading Jumpsuits
