Visiting NYC As a Family

Lifestyle Travel

My husband, 9-year-old daughter, and I took a quick trip to New York City a couple weeks ago. I was invited to attend a one-day blogging conference for free on a Friday. We decided to all go up together and stick around in the Big Apple through Tuesday afternoon. We hadn't visited NYC as a family since 2015. This wasn’t a sponsored trip, just a regular old family vacation from…

What I Wore: Back to School

Fall Fashion Outfit Posts Summer

The other morning on the drive to the gym the DJ was going over all the school districts in the area that are back to school this week.  Back to school? I swear just yesterday it was the Fourth of July! But it inspired me to pull together some of my favorite fall trends for a look to herald in fall and wear it in front of an historic building…

Fashion Advice

I mentioned in my last Stitch Fix review that I was going to try their latest offering, Stitch Fix for Kids. Stitch Fix provided me with a $20 credit to cover the styling fee of this program. My daughter is entering 4th grade in a few weeks and has outgrown most of her school clothes from last year. She is old enough that she knows her style, what she likes…

Weekend Reads

Lifestyle

I think the hardest part of blogging is how solitary it is. I'm used to an office setting where I go to get a cup of coffee at the kitchen and bump into a coworker or two. If I'm stuck, I could bounce ideas off my boss or a teammate, and at any time get up and walk to a coworker's cubicle or office to say hi, snag a piece…

My Beauty Routine: Chelsea

In this series, I’ve asked amazing women I know to share their beauty routines. These are women from across the country, different ages, lifestyles, professions, and beauty/skincare priorities.

What I Wore: Put a Bird on It

Outfit Posts Summer

There's just something about a wrap dress. For many, it does wonders for the figure. It creates an hourglass shape, flatters the bust, and makes the most of curves. And many of them are made from wrinkle-resisting, stretchy, washable fabric. But not all wrap dresses are created equal.   Dress: Adrianna Papell via Gwynnie Bee | Bag: Clare V (same bag in other colors, similar bag) | Shoes: ASOS (similar,…

What I Wore: Madewell Linen Skirt

Outfit Posts Summer

Summer is the season when you need to relax a bit.  Accept the wrinkles, the sweat, the rumpled result of a day in the heat. It's a lot easier to bear when you're wearing breathable clothing, and clothing that is socially acceptable to be wrinkled.  Hello linen, but this linen look has a bit of assistance built in to keep it looking like a crumpled paper bag. Linen Shirt: No-Iron…
