Thick ankles and booties? Check. Thick over-35 legs and a short skirt? Check. Beat up tee shirt at the office? Check. Just call me a rule breaker today, I don't care. I almost wrote that I don't give a f*ck, but I promised Emerson I would say that word less often. Let's just say, Emerson and a friend were at the playground, the friend said, “Let's play car!” and they ran to the steering wheels that are part of the jungle gym. The friend said, “Beep beep!” and Emerson said, “What the f*ck!” Yeah, not the proudest parenting moment, and not the proudest driving moment either. When Emerson was younger and would say a bad word, we would ignore it so she wouldn't get a reaction. However, she's old enough now to understand WHY such words are bad, and I am not the type to rant, “Do as I say, not as I do!” So last night we made an agreement that we both want to be nice people and polite people and together we will not use that word any more. Good news for those who have written me complaining about my potty mouth, guess in regard to language, I'll be following the rules!

Today is cold. Super cold. I live in an old house from the 40s and in the kitchen and bathroom ceilings is a Cromalox heater. They are run by temperature, so they kick on to achieve the temp you set it at. There is no “off,” you just turn it to 40 degrees. Come now,… Continue Reading Monday

When working from home, I like to wear comfortable clothing with stretch but things that can easily look put together when I leave the house. Jackets are a perfect way to make separates feel like an outfit but they don’t always have to be a blazer. I recently received the Expedition Jacket from cabi and… Continue Reading What I Wore: cabi Expedition Jacket
I love striped shirts. I think that’s clear if you scroll through my outfit posts, my capsule wardrobes, and my sale picks. I think striped shirts are classic, work with so many personal styles, and are way more fun than a solid. I’m not ashamed to admit I had an entire dresser drawer filled with… Continue Reading What I Wore: Ode to My Favorite Striped Shirt (plus a giveaway!)
