When did I turn thirty? CRICKEY!! I can’t believe that the time has come and gone and I’m officially a decade older. Like most things we tend to build up in our heads, it was very anticlimactic. But it ended up being a day filled with a lot of love. My family and friends called me from all over the globe. My parents sent me one of the sweetest notes I have ever

Flare Ups

Thankfully when it comes to my jeans, they simply add to the fun! I didn’t grow up in the 70’s so all the trends we keep talking about and seeing around us seem fun and exciting to me. I went as far as the bell bottom but never the full flare when I was younger.

But so much has happened since then that has taken precedence over the blog that I took a step back from doing what I love so much. Please know that I’ve missed being able to speak and connect with all of you. I felt like I was scraping the bottom for a while but it feels so good to be coming back up for air –

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]As I get older, it seems I say this more and more – time seems to be running by like water. The start of 2016 is a big year for me. It is the year I’m going to turn thirty. One of the fringe benefits of this year is that it gives me time to contemplate and still act on anything I want to have ready for the next decade of my life.

It is at once elegant and the base canvas to either accessorize or continue to keep the look simple and chic. You know how when you go shopping with an outfit in mind and never manage to find anything? I personally always find it hard to shop for specific occasions. So now when I happen to

As I grow older, I consciously shop for classics rather than buying just fashion. Two basics that I recommend for every wardrobe are a camel coat in a heavy weight and a white shirt or dress to layer in the winter months.
