Outfit Post: Teddy Bear

When it’s chilly, I love to wrap up in cozy sweaters. This light weight merino wool is my new favorite – it’s silky smooth and very warm without any bulk. I also love the deep cowl…hmmm…maybe I should add a necklace? Off white pants. My biggest fashion fear. I have children. Messy children. Plus, everyone … Continue reading

Outfit Post: splash of hot pink

Knowing I had to spend a good portion of my day at the doctor’s office motivated me to try to find something fun and cheery to wear today. And what’s more fun than a hot pink fluted skirt and sassy stockings? My hair is a mess from having to take my shirt on and off … Continue reading

Paris: Finding a Secret

One of the things I love about prolonged stays in new locations is discovering off-the-path things. Today, exactly one week before I have to leave, I found what may be the best view of Paris I’ve ever seen. All in a place I’ve been to many, many times: Printemps. Originally, we wanted to eat at … Continue reading
