Edgy Stripes Meets Girl-Next-Door

Stitch Fix Horiz

It is no secret that I have a weakness for black and white striped clothing. I can't help myself! So of course these edgy stripes were a no brainer when I opened up my Stitch Fix box this month to find my favorite combo. I even teased my Stitch Fix stylist that she is putting black and white striped tops in there knowing full well I can't resist. This top feels a little different though with its peek-a-boo cut out and mesh detail going down the arms. It's fun to dress it up to be a...

Linen Tunic

J. Jill Tunic

I'm sneaking my white in these days. Yes, I hear you loud and clear, and I agree, white CAN and SHOULD be worn year round. We don't have to succumb to the ol' Labor Day rules these days. However, I still wear white most often in the summer months when things are super hot. These white cropped jeans and bright linen tunic scream summer fabrics to me which is perfect considering we get some crazy humidity here in Annapolis in July and August. The linen tunic has some great stitching detail and I love the length. The key...

TrainWindow

I’m excited to share with you some tips for European travel with kids that I put to the test firsthand this summer. With a family wedding happening in Scotland, we decided to go ahead and take the entire family to Edinburgh, Scotland and London, England. Let’s all let that sink in for a moment. We voluntarily took a 1-year-old and a 4-year-old on a two-week European vacation. Ummm…are we crazy?! We sure got that feedback from a lot of friends and family. People had no problem letting me know that this was going to be a huge...

Flirty Floral Heels

Floral Heels

You may have noticed that I tend to lean more towards stripes and solids in my every day looks more than I do florals. And since I really do love a pretty floral, its nice to break from my usual vibe with pops of florals like these fun flirty floral heels. This small pop of flower power color is great for dressing up denim or pairing with a solid dress for work. These heels are Rockport's Total Motion Pointed Tow Pumps and they come in a variety of colors and patterns. And they are more than just...

Adding a Personal Touch With Kuhfs

Baja Kuhfs

This summer I'm loving my cropped jeans. I have two fabulous pairs that are in full rotation. They are such a great length for more casual work days or evening events. I'm even starting to keep it cool when it's really hot out by wearing my hair up more often than usual. Get ready for more buns and up do's this summer! Of course sometimes it's nice to add an extra pop to an outfit, especially since I do tend to wear the same few pairs of jeans all the time. Enter Kuhfs. Kristin showed us...

What to Wear While Traveling

Travel Look

If there is one thing I'm crazy passionate about, its travel. From little weekends to large vacations, I can't get enough of exploring and hearing what everyone else is doing. I'm literally the annoying friend who wants to get coffee when you get back and hear all about it. Like. Every. Single. Detail. I've been asked what I think are the best looks for a "plane day" so since I was headed to New Orleans I thought I'd share my current travel look. These photos were literally snapped as I was headed out and on my...
