We attended a black tie wedding this past weekend at one of my favorite hotels in Denver, The Brown Palace. (You may have seen the classic hotel on the blog before, as it’s the hotel that holds the annual Champagne Cascade, each year to kick off the holiday season.) I love a good reason to dress up… and Zach and Michelle’s winter wedding was the perfect excuse to really go for it!
As I mentioned in my previous post, we booked a vacation to somewhere beachy and I’m dreaming of warmer climates. So although it may be a little early, in fact there is snow falling outside my window as I type this, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite floral frocks for Spring. Some which already hang in my closet, some that are lingering in my online shopping carts, and some that I just truly appreciate but will probably never have a chance to wear. I’m looking at you #5. Honestly, if my bank account could sustain it, I’d buy them all! Floral is such a feminine staple and I love to see how designers reinvent it over and over again each season. See my top picks for some Spring 2018 floral dresses.

These pictures were taken just this weekend and now there is snow on the ground again. We’ve had a pretty mild winter here in Denver, but man am I ready for Spring! We are headed to Australia in just over a month and I am seriously counting down the days until we take off!!!! 42 days and counting! But we do have a lot of fun things going on before we are off to the Land Down Under, so I’m trying to enjoy everything as it comes and not wish time away.
The holidays may be over, but that doesn’t mean the pretty clothing has to go by the wayside! Winter wardrobes can start to feel a bit drab when the cold weather persists, but adding some embellishments to your basics is an easy way to update your look.
In my latest B&B Miscellaneous installment I will continue to share little tidbits about my life lately, things I like, do, want, etc. Hope you enjoy getting to know me a little better! If you’d like to see more, check out my first and second installments.
Girlfriends are a necessity and I’ve been fortunate to have a core group of friends built in since high school, and one of those girls has been my best friend since elementary school. I also found an equally amazing group of fun-loving girls in college that I’ve continued to be close to even though we’re all scattered across the country. Since 2017 was a milestone year as most of us turned thirty, I thought it would be fun to reflect on what a great trip around the sun it was and how much I love these girls.
(The picture above is actually from the kick-off party to our wedding weekend! It was so much fun having my friends, old and “new”, together by my side for all of our wedding events. This picture was taken almost four an a half years ago and I’m happy to report that each of these women are still dear friends. I am just so grateful for my squad.)
If you’re like me and avoid the Black Friday crowds at all costs, I thought I’d share my 2017 Holiday Gift Guide for those people who ate too much yesterday and would rather shop in their pajamas on the couch. I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
I recently picked up this cutout choker sweater dress in grey and it’s the perfect go-to for the season. It’s cozy with an interesting neckline and the short hemline makes it perfect to pair with over-the-knee boots.

Hi everyone! I’m sorry I have been so M.I.A. here on the blog but we’ve had a lot going on recently with a sick kiddo (who thankfully is doing much better), a stream of out-of-town visitors and gearing up to host Thanksgiving. Luckily, this nice weather has been giving us a chance to get outside and enjoy some fresh air, play in the park and finally rake up all of our leaves. We had a total of 16 giant bags of leaves from just our front yard! Yeesh.
With this nice weather I have been loving that I don’t have to wear tights just yet! Don’t get me wrong I love tights but since I dress up at the office and typically wear dresses and skirts to work, I feel like I live most of the fall, winter and even some spring months in tights. So it’s nice not to be forced into them with the delayed onset of cold weather here in Denver.
My trusty pleated midi skirt has been on frequent rotation this fall and I like to pair it with bare legs and pumps or pointed flats. I’ll mix in boots (and tights) as it continues to get colder. I’ve been donning pleats since I went to Catholic school, and I love that they’re really back in style now that I’m an adult.
