Doubling up on Denim

The classic “Canadian Tuxedo” may have gotten a bad rap. While this outfit duo has historically been associated with questionable fashion taste (we’re looking at you, Britney and Justin!), it seems to have taken on an elevated twist amongst today’s trend-setting stylistas. I bought this denim jacket and skirt separately and never thought of pairing them. But when planning this shoot, they just felt better together.

All The Fall Feels

Although these days there’s a slight chill in the air, the sun still feels strong. So it’s the perfect time to layer favorite season-less wardrobe pieces and show them off — before we have to pull out our puffer coats and go “undercover.” Sticking to a black-and-white palette makes pulling any outfit together, this one included, pretty foolproof.

Urban Mermaid

If you live in a city, one of the biggest summertime perks is a pool. Especially this summer! So once DVORA gave us permission to shoot this post at their La Playa, we were there. Both the lifeguard Keanu and my photog Kristin tried to convince me to jump into the pool in this dress (!!!), but this urban mermaid preferred to play it cool…and dry.

The Art of Fashion

I like to believe that fashion is so much more than trends, labels or #outfitoftheday. At its best, fashion is a form of creative expression dreamed up by a designer, somewhere, somehow, and put on our blank canvassed bodies. Taken a step further, there’s an art to everyone’s personal fashion. Your vision may not match mine, and vice versa, but there’s more than meets the eye in what we choose to wear.

Blue Belle

When I fully embraced being a Boy Mom of three, I found myself living in a world of blue. Blue painted bedrooms, blue clothing and accessories, even blue strollers for my crew of blue-eyed boys. I often asked myself if I was overdoing it, but my friends who were Girl Moms seemed similarly immersed in pinks and purples. And truth be told, I rarely gravitated to those colors before then, and now rarely pick anything pink for my wardrobe. And purple? Pretty much a no-go…ever.

Citrus & Sparkle

I know my last post was an ode to the season-less style of black and minimalist dressing. Well, there’s nothing more minimalist than a one-and-done dress. But this time of year, I often surprise myself by gravitating to colors that are bolder and brighter then what I’d typically wear. And no matter what color I’m building my look around, I’ll never say no to stepping out with a little sparkle.

Minimalist for the Money

Black is the epitome of a fashion go-to, because it’s season-less, easy to dress up or down, looks good on every body type at any age. It’s subtly, simply impeccable. There’s been a lot of buzz lately about “quiet luxury” or “stealth wealth” dressing (à la “Succession”), but it really just boils down to a classic, minimal head-to-toe look in neutral colors. And pssst…you don’t have to buy super expensive designer brands to achieve it.

Walking Out of Winter Like…

The March weather here has been seesawing from temptingly Spring-like to blustery and snowy. Which means it’s too soon to pack away my sweaters, boots and puffers. So in an effort to fight off a bit of fashion malaise, when I spied this cozy plaid coat on sale I knew it was the perfect piece to fill out my outerwear wardrobe. To wear now, to look forward to wearing next year.
