Spring Trend Alert: Get Your Gingham On

Good morning! Wow, where did that weekend go! Mine flew by but that’s probably because I had so much to do – lots of spring cleaning and projects to finish, so at least I made a dent in  my to-do list. Something I’ve already done is add several fun gingham pieces to my wardrobe. My shoes today (yes, those are my rather long feet above :) ) are from Zara. So fun, aren’t they?! They add the perfect little pop of pizzaz to my cropped jeans and black top. I also scored this pink check number recently. Love the...

The Beret

  Love them or hate them (I’m clearly in the first camp) they are back and enjoying a moment thanks to Gucci’s creative director, Alessandro Michele. Jewel-tones and classic black berets have shown up in several of Michele’s collections, adding an extra dash of visual interest that is fun, fresh and modern. The iconic beret, with its rich history and symbolic cultural ties, looks to be a strong statement-maker as we head into spring. Mine is wool felt, an archived classic, but this of-the-moment accessory can also be found in crocheted cotton, hand-knitted wool and even straw. It’s a great accessory...

Peaches & Cream

Off to the city, my city, for the long weekend. And let me tell you, it is hot here in the Midwest! Fall? Nowhere in sight, which is why today’s look will definitely be in the suitcase. It’s been one of my go-to looks all summer. Love the cool, peachy color paired with the ivory shorts and my favorite nude sandals. Wishing you a wonderful weekend wherever in the world you happen to be. Make it a good one! xox-M *** Anthropologie Top / J.Crew shorts (similar / on sale ) / Chanel Bag / Zara Sandals/ Paloma Picasso Cuff ***...

Things That Caught My Eye This Week

Time flies when you’re running around in a thousand different directions, but this week seemed to go by particularly fast, probably because Katherine had a nasty bug that kept her home in bed for a couple of days. Thankfully, she’s on the mend, the sun finally came out today, and well, it’s Friday.  A big TGIF to all! And speaking of Friday… 1.  As we head into this second weekend of June (can you believe it?) I thought I’d give you a little bit of happy to put into any happy hour you might have planned.  If, like me, you had...
