Not Your Mama’s Loafers

Not Your Mama’s Loafers

I don’t know about the rest of you but I grew up with penny loafers. My mom and aunts all wore them and even my brother wore them when he went to Catholic school. The shoe itself is versatile and wearable for both men and women. […]

Bodhi is currently napping, it’s Friday and I’m so grateful for these few minutes to myself to get ready. After what seems like a very long week it’s nice to spend a little time taking care of myself and my skin. As the leaves start […]

Playing With All The Colors

Playing With All The Colors

With autumn at our doorstep it’s hard not to start thinking about sweater weather. I’ve already done a major change over in my closet. But of course it’s natural to want to bring new pieces into your wardrobe. For me the name of the game is budgeting, so instead of going ham on all things fall (my normal protocol) I’ve decided to shop smart this season. This year I grabbed a little inspiration from mother nature herself. My color palette is normally all over the board but for those few pieces I’ll be adding I’ve drifting into a more “changing leaves” kinda vibe.
Reds, Olives, Nudes and Silvers are on my mind and I’m looking for the right pieces to help translate that into everyday fashion. I love playing with colors and budgeting has made that interesting. Instead of looking to the seasons “it” color aka dusty rose and mauve I’m looking for something that will last and colors I now I’ll always love. Don’t get me wrong I love a trending color but once you have kids, pets, or any other thing in your life that DRAINS your bank account, you have to start getting savvy with your spending.  I’ve decided to stick with sweaters, because well I mean do I have to explain that one. From summer sweaters to chunky winter knits I’m a sweater fanatic!
