Favorites On Repeat

Favorites On Repeat

If it isn't broken, don't fix it; this sensible girl takes this approach to many things in life, including fashion. I'm not at all the kind of girl who has to have the newest item before it even comes out. That to me is a vain and foolish pursuit. Instead, I always gravitate towards the [...]

The American Brand that Has Me Excited About Denim Again

The American Brand that Has Me Excited About Denim Again

A petite lady's review of Agolde jeans, and denim buying guide. Denim, a staple of my mom-life wardrobe, isn't necessarily a piece of clothing that I get excited about putting on. They're an article of practicality, functionality, necessity, and to me just as comfortable but more polished than yoga pants. Yet each year I find [...]

I have struggled for weeks with how to put this post into words. Every draft I've written, though thorough and thoughtful, ends up sounding just a bit negative. That's not my intention, that's not how I feel about this new adventure but it's hard to detail the why in our decision making process without mentioning [...]

High Summer Color Crush: Coral & Madras

High Summer Color Crush: Coral & Madras

An American Summer In Classic Colors and Prints Made By American Designers. This summer I have been all about coral. I credit this to my eldest daughter, who has also been swooning over coral and wearing it just about every single day. I guess it's grown on me, or perhaps its the instant tan I [...]
