This post is sponsored by Ricola. RIIIIIIIICOLAAAAAAAAA. Let’s take a look in my bag, shall we? (While writing this post, I thought I remembered doing something similar, and look! 2005, y’all. 8 YEARS AGO. Look at that phone! Hahaaaaa.) As you can see, my uber minimalist days of yore have disappeared, although I still try […]
I’ve noticed in the past year or so that my clothing options have really opened up – I actually enjoy wearing nice blouses, dresses, and shoes again because I’m 82% sure my children will not ruin them. I have to admit, it’s nice to be completely out of the nursing/spit up/sandbox phase of motherhood, and […]
Edited to add Cyber Monday deals, awwwww yeahhhh Happy Day After Black Friday! Did you go shopping? Me? I watched 7 episodes of Parenthood in a row. In my bed. (I’m currently in the middle of season 2.) It was kind of the best day ever. Today’s all about decorating for Christmas, but while the […]
All Saints Cargo Biker Jacket Every year, I become obsessed with finding One Perfect Item. Last year, if you recall, it was The Perfect Ankle Boot. People, I’m willing to search the ends of the earth for said perfect item, and will usually plop down a decent amount of cash if I feel I will […]
It’s Fall, people! FAALLLLLLL. Bust out the scarves, like this very minute. I guess most of you have been enjoying the cooler weather for a bit, although, here in Southern California, our summer just gets going around September and October. Which means, I AM SO SICK OF WEARING SHORTS. However! This week brought a lovely […]

Lovely local ladies, what are you doing next Tuesday evening? I think you should drop by C. Wonder at Fashion Island for some sweet treats, vino, and a nice little discount. Be there or be square!
I had such a great night at my Splendid shindig last week that I thought I might share some photos. First off, the ladies (and gent) from the store were the best. (Can I get a part-time job?) Um, also. Doughnuts, people. Sidecar Doughnuts. (Doughnuts that I didn’t even get to try because I was […]
So. I wouldn’t call this post the most timely because usually when one has a blog redesign, they yell it from the rooftops with a big reveal and such. Well, I had the most lovely site refresh completed by CooperHouse a few months back, and I never got the chance to thank them! If you […]
For the past few years, I’ve been a bit obsessed with International Goodwill Ambassador (and supermodel) Liya Kebede’s line of handmade garments, especially her swim cover-ups and tunics. Her company called Lemlem was started as a way of providing Ethiopian weavers with a means to escape poverty, and although I fully support the idea, the […]
Here ye, here ye, I do declare this to be the summer of the scarf. I bought myself some cute cotton scarves from Madewell a a few weeks ago and have been wearing them all the livelong day. (Madewell must have sold out of the one pictured. It’s a cutie.) Here are my four favorite […]
I know, I know. My professional title should be “Shopping Enabler,” but this one is too good to not mention. Um, if you need me, you’ll know where to find me.
clockwise, from top left Print Silk Kaftan Maxi – Dream boho maxi for a beach bonfire with bearded men. Mimosa Bandeau Maillot – I stare at this maillot for ridiculously long periods of time. Could it be any prettier? Eyelet Peasant Top – New arrival at J. Crew, and it comes in several colors. Roller […]
Summer is here, summer is here! Although I have a sweet spot for cool weather layers, the punchy colors and breezy fabrics of summer are always a welcome change come June. Instead of layering, I try to focus on fun pairings to keep things lively. Some things are definitely better together, so I’ve rounded up […]
I have some good news and bad news. The good news is that I pulled together some really fun items for the beach wedding in Cabo San Lucas over Memorial Day weekend. The bad news? I didn’t go. As much as I wanted to give my current issues the finger, the anxiety won. *shaking fists […]
