muddy puddles

Tal, Henry, and Finley playing in muddy puddles after 6 inches of rain and I think this was the most fun these kiddos have ever had together.

Gorgeous Abstract Art

I am going to make good use of today and paint.  I have a huge blank canvas just waiting for a big splash of color.  I love abstract and I love color and these paintings above are inspiring me.
I have no idea what I will come up with so it's a little scary but I have decided to throw caution to the wind lately and just do it.  So here is to hoping it turns out!

Currently Coveting... workout edition

I have a slight obsession with workout gear.  I wear it everyday to and from the gym and so I want quality.  It makes up most of my everyday wardrobe.  Here are a few fun pieces, an amazing yoga mat, and workout accessories that are a must for me!

top 10 fall must haves for your wardrobe

Good Morning! 
 Today I want to welcome the gals from LUXE WEARHOUSE to the blog!  They are here to share their top 10 list of Fall wardrobe essentials!  Enjoy!

Top 10 Fall essentials

Whether it is a fun twist on a classic blazer or a stylizedmoto jacket,
this piece will be a staple in your fall wardrobe.  Wear it casually
with jeans and a tee or throw it on over a blouse or dress for a night out!
Skies are Blue drape front blazer / BB Dakota moto jacket / Olive and Oak faux leather and ponte moto jacket


Wear a feminine blouse with jeans during the day and dress it up with great jewelry for night.  We love these options that combine dressed up chiffon with comfy jersey for the perfect everyday blouse for work or play!

Esley color block blouse / Fate chiffon and jersey drape neck blouse / Esley embellished top with jersey detail

An easy piece to throw on any time!  Both of these pieces pick up fun trend elements with the Aztec print and the leather detailing.

Skies are Blue Aztec print cardigan / Romeo and Juliet cozy knit cardi with leather detail


Oversized sweaters are not only comfy, but totally on-trend this Fall!  We love the slouchy look of these sweaters paired with a skinny jean and a boot.  The playful stripes and colorblock are easy to wear in these neutral colors too!

Nothing says Fall quite like cashmere!  Pick up any of the sweater trends this Fall in a luxurious cashmere or invest in a classic and timeless piece like our personal favorite, the travel wrap.  You can never go wrong with cashmere!

White and Warren cable cardigan / Kinross travel wrap and White and Warren v-neck / White and Warren 2-way cardi

This new fit combines the modern, sleek look of a trendy skinny jean with a vintage-inspired mini flare at the calf for a super flattering look!  Add this dressed up denim to yourFall wardrobe this year for an easy way to transition from day to night!

When it comes it outerwear, we love a jacket that combines fashion and function!  These timeless jackets can outfit you through most seasons and you will reach for them year after year in your closet!  Why not try it in a pop-color?!

A scarf adds fun finished look to most outfits!  As the weather gets cooler, we love to layer them!  A lightweight scarf can be worn year-round as a part of your outfit, not just a function of staying warm.  It is an easy and inexpensive way to add color and print to your wardrobe!


Whether it is a large statement piece, layered necklaces or stacked bracelets, we LOVE the finished look that jewelry adds to any outfit!  Adding a bit of sparkle is a great way to take your outfit from day to night, but don’t be afraid to make a statement with your jewelry during the day too!

This is the perfect size to carry all of your necessities and more with you for a weekend away!  We love the edgy feel the embossed python details give this classic weekender!
