A Sunshine State of Mind

There’s no better time than summer to spice up your personal style — with brighter colors, bolder patterns, and whimsical details. While you can always slip into your favorite denim shorts and tee when running weekend errands, adding a few statement pieces to your warm-weather wardrobe can help create that fashion magic you might have been missing.

Cat of the Day

This look came together so easily, because it’s is all about some of my fashion faves — leopard print, great design, and layered neutrals. It starts with a summery sundress and finishes with accessories I will wear again…and again. And each piece, whether new or old, is from a brand I trust and love. And I think you will, too!

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.

Not Your Grandma’s Crochet

When you think of crochet does your grandma’s favorite hobby come to mind? That was then. Now, the newest knits are more refined, less homespun. Making today’s crochet a cult favorite. From Gen Zers to celebrities to yours truly, everyone seems to have a soft spot for this trans-seasonal trend. Yes, crochet is cool again.

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.
