If you're looking for the equivalent of a self high-five or for a thoughtful gift for your mom on Mother's Day, here are the items high on my personal wishlist.
Happy Mother's Day to me.

Weekend 4.30

The story of tween + teen boys & clean rooms, plus long denim shorts, the jeans I'm loving now, oura ring problems, what we're reading & more.
Tween boys & clean rooms, plus the usual fun links from S.

Weekend 4.23

Toddler Mom Shana must move on to teens & tweens (sob!), plus the sailor shorts we're eyeing, a few chic jackets, vegan bowls for dinner & more. Pop a squat.
When suddenly they’re not toddlers anymore. (Plus the usual fun links, inside.)

Weekend 4.16

Well, we're finally packing up Vermont and heading back to Philly. We're both excited to be home and sad to leave Vermont. Our winters here have become so special - such dedicated family time. And the skiing is great (and frankly, why we're here), but there's something to be said for the whole slowing down we experience...

Weekend 4.9

My youngest son, Pax, qualified for USASA's snowboarding nationals, and has been competing at Copper Mountain all week. He's capable of seriously amazing things...yet still is, fundamentally, my baby.
Wow, Gang - this week has been quite the experience. Briefly, if you're new here (hi and welcome), my youngest son, Pax, qualified for USASA's snowboarding nationals, and has been competing at Copper Mountain all week. It has been a pretty epic week, as far as life experience goes, but a totally exhausting one as well. Pax was, overall,...

Weekend 4.2

We've got all the feels for the boys in the national ski champsionships (+ Denver) & I'm swooning for my Halfdays ski gear + Vuori's new swimwear. We've got a few more style tips, too.
We made it to Colorado! The boys have been training for the national championships all week (you can actually see them in USASA's IG. Raines is in the orange helmet and Pax is the snowboarder in the orange jacket/blue pants right after him), and we're all kind of just...delighting in Colorado. While it seems like we lived here a...

Weekend 3.26

We're mourning the end of ski season, plus eyeing up Bridgerton-style dresses, sleek tan booties & more cute style. Also, on our reading list: Rising Troublemaker...
It's our kids' last weekend on their ski team (they get so annoyed when I call it that. Technically, GMA is a competitive freestyle ski and snowboard club, aka "it's not a race, MOM") and the end of ski season always bums me out. The slopes are either icy or slushy, the base is basically covered in mud, and...
Cool art supplies for creating, fun additions to game night (our personal fave family activity), gifts for adventurers on the go & adorable kids' pieces too cute not to include.
Sponsored by Zulily and ShopStyle Collective Whether you’re attempting to build Easter baskets that aren’t COMPLETELY focused on sugary treats, or you’d just like to add more family playfulness to the mix this spring, there are TONS of cute and fun finds on Zulily today! Tons! Zulily can be a little bit dangerous for me. I've been known to check out...
I can be fierce & confident in high-heeled booties + a leather jacket, I can be fun & whimsical in floral cut-out dresses + bright heels, but I think the "moment between the poses" outfit for me, when I'm not "on" is a perfectly broken-in pair of jeans, comfy top + sneaks.
"Not the blog aesthetic, but I had to send you these photos because they are FIRE," my photographer wrote to me before sending over the latest gallery from our shoot. She was right. The pictures were something special. But, there was one picture in particular (edited in black and white) where I'm sitting in my Abercrombie & Fitch Dad Jeans...

Weekend 3.19

We're enthralled with a Sci-Fi book we can't recommend enough, plus looking at cheeky bikini bottoms, Golden Goose alternatives, rag & bone's Miramar wide legs & more. Join us.
I can't stop thinking about this book I read a few weeks ago. It's called The Pioneer, and it happens to be written by one of our lovely readers, Bridget Tyler. I first learned about it while on a Zoom call with Janice Kao, in prep for her style & life interview. Janice is one of Bridget's best friends,...
