by Wednesday, October 21, 2015

Even though I love me some fall, I'm kind of unwilling to let my summer wardrobe go. Must be the West Coast in me - I love that eternal summer! For a recent work trip to Seattle, I packed this romper from City Chic. It's long sleeved but still lightweight. Knowing it would be chilly, I ...

In The Trenches

by Friday, October 2, 2015

I'll start by admitting there are very few downsides to living in Phoenix. I mean, summer is nearly eternal. Palm trees line every single street. Traffic isn't all that bad. The resorts are bomb and we're nearly always poolside. Sounds glorious, doesn't it? Except when you're a girl obsessed with outerwear. I think I have one ...

The other night after a long 12-hour day at work, I walked in my house and declared to my husband; "We are having a date night!" The sun was on its way to the horizon but still the heat rippled through the air. I couldn't wait to change out of my work clothes into something that ...

Weekend Essentials

by Monday, May 11, 2015

Hot summer weekendsΒ are right around the corner. And let's face it: when it's that hot out you need a no-muss, no-fuss, go-to outfit that will keep you cool while being stylish and cool. For me, that outfit is a super lightweight peplum top and casual denim shorts. Light wash denim is so quintessentially summer - ...
