Holiday

Dressing Up Plaid

plaid outfit ideas
I have a little obsession lately and it's plaid blouses. There's something classic about plaid at the holidays that the partial prep in me adores. I'm loving all the blouses out right now that have a little ruffle or a crisp collar that takes them far above your traditional plaid flannel shirts and takes them right into holiday parties...
gifts ideas for a cook
sweater | apron My love of cooking has grown over the last 10 years, but it was a slow roll. I'm someone who wanted to be able to just know how to cook and not have to rely on a recipe, yet I went to art school and not culinary school. #minorsetback But the more I have come to appreciate...
Steve Madden kind of kills the statement bootie game. When we found a very similar pair on Amazon (for way less) we had to do a comparison. Which would you choose? Featured Pieces Steve Madden Sequin Boots NOTE:  The gold flips to black, but we just learned that the silver flips to a matte pink.  Better, but still a bit strange. Bamboo Sequin...
Oh hey hot pants.  As someone who can be found in black, navy or gray 99% of the time, it makes perfect sense that I bought these hot pink pants.  #nonsense I'm not even sure what it was.  I had featured these pants in my article about velvet-on-velvet last month and then they just....haunted me. Partly it was the photo...
Happy holidays! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, or Yule, there’s no denying that this time of year is a celebration of love. And maybe….a little bit of magic. The first snow of the season, the Jackson 5 Christmas album (Mom, it’s still my fav), and seeing my boys’ eyes light up when they realize that their hot chocolate is now...
gifts for guys
Not all men are my father. (More on that life acceptance in a future therapy session.) But here's what I find men people do have in common: most men like to play or compete, so games and toys are good gifts. Most men like things that are practical but cool, things they'll use every day, and are therefore worth...
nursing tops for holiday
Velvet Peplum top I've made it my mission to find Holiday-worthy tops to wear while being a nursing mama. Breastfeeding is not an easy task. I may not like my lopsided boobs, or my always-changing cup size but I'm grateful I can do it and one way I like to honor this body of mine is by finding cute and...
The boys were walking ahead of Mike and I, bouncing their way to school. They were with their friends, and, at times, had their arms slung around each other, only removing an arm to animatedly make a point. They looked like miniature teenagers, full of jokes and boasts and teasing. It was adorable. "You know," Mike began  Hesitated. "Parenting strikes...
I have a not so secret love for wide leg pants as you may have seen here or here. I love to have a special pair in my closet, even though the occasion to wear them doesn't come as often. But, the Holidays are here and there are parties to attend. At least those that require a little something...
floral embroidered maxi dress
When I thought about what would be my fancy outfit this holiday season...I was really kinda bored with what I kept coming up with. As much as I love a good plaid, sparkly earrings and sequin bag, I wanted something different. Anyone else with me? I'm just not feeling the usual this year. So. I had to go on the...
