i finally got around to styling this amazeballs quilted crop from snoozer loser. it was so generously gifted to me last year, but the weather was already too warm here in socal, at that point. booooo. but here we are! you may recall that i’ve worked with snoozer loser once or twice – i styled this beautiful tank and even offered a giveaway to my lovely readers.
what i love most about sn is that their products/textiles are organic and hand-made with beautiful dyes and original, unique prints. if you need to spice up your winter wardrobe – check out these gorgeous scarves!
also, i’m totally dying over this fucking coat. yes, i cussed at it. that’s how much i love it.
this is more of a simple, “boho” look – wide leg jeans, a floppy hat aaaand an armful of gage huntley stamped cuff bracelets. (now availabe in rose gold, people!) the only thing missing is this beauty.
i’ll be back to share a couple more denim on denim looks. hold your breath.
so moody. love it.
happy 2015! let’s start the year off with some gorgeous jewelry, shall we? on saturday, i got together with amanda (of gage huntley) to style up a few new pieces in her collection. this year, amanda and her team are focused on creating a minimalistic, modern line – simple, versatile designs that are oozing style. i am head over heels for the brass bar necklace that you see above – the curve. like, it gave me chills. i know i’m weird, but it’s that good. so yeah, stay tuned for more goodies!
also, let’s talk about black on black. really, you can’t go wrong. the only thing i’m not sure of are the “drop crotch” pants i’m wearing. fine from the front, saggy looking diaper butt from the back. or something. it’s just not a good look. so the moral of the story is – don’t enjoy a liquid lunch before shopping (like soooomeone i know.) because these are not in real life pants.

no resolutions for this girl. not officially.
2015 is all about no looking back, no expectations… simplifying my life. focusing on what’s important. who’s important. and to remember that it’s okay to make mistakes, because, i mean… you have to make mistakes in order to learn.
also – my health. but not that run 4 days a week, start some insane new diet health… it’s that, i’m going to be 35 in february so let’s go get moles checked out and have the doc do some blood work and while i’m at it, maybe start taking some vitamins because my hair is thinner than ever and my skin is drier than usual (winter, maybe?) and what the fuck is up with that little wrinkle above the bridge of my nose, between my eyes?? gah! time for old lady face cream!! but i digress i’m acting like a lunatic it’s just early prevention kinda health. ya feel me?
looking forward to what 2015 has up its sleeve…
happy new year, friends!
ps. i lied. i want a higher butt. that’s my resolution – to work on dat butt.
so we finally bought a tree and decorated the house. i didn’t drink egg nog and i didn’t listen to christmas music, but we did watch elf and the grinch, so there’s that. it’s gettin all kindsa festive up in here. fa la la la la.
10 more days, people.

let’s talk about parenting for a minute… if there’s one essential life lesson i will teach my daughter (well, besides the significance of smizing, obviously), it’s to always, always make sure the toilet paper roll is positioned with the paper hanging OVER the roll. as opposed to under. that’s just ridiculous. that’s it, there ya have it! she can learn everything else about life from pinterest, instagram, youtube, and dora the explorer. my job is done here.
and speaking of lessons… learn this one – pink + grey = so good. plus, i really love a boxy, structured top. especially one with a high low hemline that covers my butt because these jeans might be a tad too tight. lesson over, class dismissed.
*ps. i don’t even think taylor knows how to change the toilet paper roll, so i gave up on the aforementioned subject. besides, i’m more focused on teaching him how to do manly things… like rub my feet.

i finished reading beautiful ruins by jess walter a few days ago and i must say – it’s one of the most intriguing books i’ve read in quite some time. i’m terrible at reviews though, so that’s pretty much all i have to say. just read it. i also read ellen’s book seriously…i’m kidding. there were a few hysterical moments, but it was a meh read for me. i’m not really sure what the point is, but it was entertaining nonetheless.
speaking of hysterical… i came across omglilterallydead (6th photo from the top) on instagram and it’s pretty much everything. it’s basically a play on people being beyond dramatic and “dying” over things – “omg, dying” – over photos of a cute baby or “literally dead” over an amazing pair of shoes. i’m guilty of it and i can make fun of myself (but mostly others) so it cracks me up. check it out. you’ll die. <side eye>
in other news, i have done absolutely nothing to get ready for the holidays. no tree, no decorations, zero shopping done… what kind of a mother am i?! so, i’ll do that this weekend. turn on some christmas tunes, drink some spiked egg nog and
so hey – that’s it! happy tuesday.
nice talkin’ with ya.
first of all, i just want to point out that because my legs are so short, the “knee rips” in these jeans hit just below my knees. haha! #shortpeopleproblems which reminds me… i had this friend once, she used to make fun of my height – always with this holier than thou attitude, like being tall is just soooo amazing. and i was like – bitch, if we’re walking down the street and a bunch of birds start shitting at us – you’re getting hit first. so. joke’s on her. shorty for life.
anyway, what was i talking about? oh yes, what i’m wearing. floral + plaid. it was basically sartorial kismet in my closet… the preppy blazer ends up next to the feminine floral blouse and bam – it’s happening. a little masculine, a little feminine – i’m smitten.
also, happy monday!
hey ooooh – i’m back? i don’t know. i better not commit, because sometimes i’m feelin it and other times i’m feelin it, but i don’t have time to make it happen. the kids are good, i’m good – lots of reading, pilates 4 nights a week, same old weekly mom routine, same old bar on friday night – wash rinse repeat. i can honestly say i’m doing nothing to make shit happen. also, it’s fall (we’re a little behind here in socal) and now that the nights have settled in earlier, i’m like a little mama bear – i just wanna get home, put on my cozies and snuggle on the couch, typically falling asleep by 9 pm. hibernation – that sounds good to me. however, if it’s absolutely necessary to get up and get dressed, i prefer to be comfortable and low maintenance. cue soft tshirt dress and an oversized sweater. boom and boom.
