We had a weekend getaway to the mountains and it was so nice to get out of the city and just relax with my boys. We slept in, went hiking, and went for a drive to take in the changing leaves.
I couldn’t be happier that summer is fi-na-lly here! I live for warm weather and as you might have noticed gravitate towards wearing dresses, tank tops, skirts and sandals. I love not having to grab a coat and pile on a scarf, hat and gloves. It’s so nice to unbundle for the season.
The trend of styling a dress over jeans is perfect for days when you just can’t seem to figure out what to wear to be comfortable in the in-between spring temperatures. I’m always cold and wearing basic skinny jeans under this printed off-the-shoulder dress proved just about perfect to keep me warm while out and about.
This ruffle-sleeve sweater is my new spring obsession. It is so cozy and instantly adds a bit of flare to your outfit. Ruffles are everywhere this season and this pretty pastel purple is the perfect way to tie in color to an otherwise basic outfit.
Give your winter wardrobe a break from black and a breathe of fresh air with all white! Now that our February heat wave has come to a halt and there should be a light dusting of snow in Denver today, it’s the perfect time to try the monochromatic color coding in a palette of winter white.
I have been feeling a little bummed out with my lack of blogging lately. It’s a creative outlet that I really enjoy and one which let’s me express my musings – typically involving fashion, family, travel and the not-so-occasional glass of bubbly. With an infant at home it’s just plain hard to find time to write.
We decided to take a little trip up to the mountains during my last week of maternity leave. I am seriously anxious about leaving my baby boy and heading back to work, so a getaway and a bit of fresh air was just what I needed.
The sun was shining in Denver this weekend and it really was such a beautiful couple of days. On Sunday, Scott and I had our own little date day which was so nice to just have a laid back day to ourselves. We took the dog to the park, had lunch on a patio (followed by a stop at Dairy Queen… I mean come on, 70 degrees in April calls for a DQ Blizzard), played cornhole in our yard just the two of us (to really take advantage of the warm weather), made dinner and watched a movie. It was a perfect day! And now that we have a little one on the way, I’m really trying to cherish the one-on-one time with my husband.
Although my day to day accessory routine tends to be pretty simplistic and based around delicate, gold jewelry, it’s always fun to break out of the (jewelry) box.
