I've got cozy on the brain because this weekend we're going to visit the in-laws in Minneapolis for an early Christmas. The kids think we're going to the North Pole, but joke's on us because it's actually warmer in the arctic circle than the midwest right now! When we get back and thaw out, I'll be wearing this fun...
Gang, my sister has been visiting all week with her sweet family.  It's been such a treat.  Little Greenlea is just.....amazing.  I'm so used to boys and all of their quirks that having a girl around has totally thrown me.  She talks!! SO much!  She constantly narrates our day, in the sweetest little voice.  And of course my boys...
I. Love. The. Holidays. And you know the most perfect thing that happened on this day? It snowed!!!!! We get so many loads of rainfall each year, but snow is not a regular occurrence here in most of the Pacific Northwest, so we get pretty excited about the first snowfall. I will skip over the part where the next...
What if I said that one of the most versatile pieces in my closet was a dress covered in giant, embroidered flowers, and made from a material that reminds one of tapestry? I know, I know.  You clutch your pearls (ironically of course), and laugh, because OBVIOUSLY I'VE LOST MY MIND. Obviously. But here's the thing:  when it's time to be....festive....or dressed up....or...
Have you guys seen this year's range of cool, offbeat holiday sweaters out right now for kids? (Apparently some of you have, since the boutique I set up a few weeks ago got decimated during Black Friday/Cyber Monday!) In case you're still looking for a holiday outfit that looks nice, lets kids express some personality and is comfortable, I found...
Need a few fresh men's fashion ideas for your guy this holiday season?  It's always surprisingly tricky.  Despite the fact that guy style can be summarized - at a high level - as Shirt, Pants, Shoes, Done....there's often a fine line between date night and work drone.  And while there's absolutely nothing wrong with a full suit, most holiday parties...
  I love the combination of  black mini dresses with flat over-the-knee boots in the winter.  The boots are comfy, keep your legs warm and offset the shorter length of the dresses.  (This pair is perfect and is currently over half off.)  Add a long coat and you've got a gorgeous outfit that's perfect for the holidays. I've rounded up my favorites...
I've finally found it:  the perfect outfit for those freezing cold nights.  The nights you have plans, but the couch, piled with blankets is calling your name.  The nights you pull the intended dress out of your closet and shiver just looking at it.  The nights I invariably end up clad in layers of black wool and denim, grumbling...
Over here, we suit up.  We suit up for holiday parties and Christmas Eve service, we suit up for weddings and kid's plays, we suit up for Ballet X, and occasionally we suit up for a fancy-ish dinner out.  I want my boys to understand that sometimes an occasion calls for a suit.  (For Pax, this "occasion" is also...
My favorite place to visit during the Holiday season here in Grand Rapids is the Downtown Market. If you live in West Michigan chances are you've already been (and love it) and if you're just passing through, it's definitely worth a visit. Home to an expansive 24 vendor market hall that's packed with inspiring local vendors: artisan foods, wines, gift boutiques,...
