Winter Wonderland

For our second holiday trip, we traveled up to northern Idaho to spend Christmas with my family.  We went skiing, snow shoeing, and on a horse drawn sleigh ride through the snowy woods.  It truly felt like we were in a winter wonderland.  To brighten things up I kept warm with a neon pink hat.  I couldn't resist a good opportunity for a pop of pink!

Skirt the Issue

When traveling for the Holidays it is sometimes hard to pack for various festivities and occasions, especially when going for a long weekend and using most of your bag to deliver presents to your loved ones.  I always try to throw in a few statement pieces that pair with many basics and are festively appropriate. I love this patterned swirl skirt tied with a big red bow, it worked great for our early Christmas celebrations in Arizona.

Desert Stroll

Over the past few days we traveled to Arizona.  It was sunny, dry, and delightful!  We spent time with family, shopped for farmer's market goodies, tried new restaurants, and cheered our heads off at the U of A basketball game.  When I travel on quick trips I like to have one good pair of jeans and shoes that I can wear with anything.  This leaves space in my bag for cute yet practical layers and any purchases I pick up along the way!

Polka - Dottie

At work I am surrounded by polka dots.  In the world of PB Teen we are known for our cute and colorful prints including lots of dots in layers of bright colors.  I may not be the target demographic, but I still think polka dots are fun and fancy free!

Gold Rush

Holiday soiree season is here!  Seasonal festivities are the perfect excuse to rock metallics and sparkle.  I personally am excited for the next few weeks.  I have visions of gold, sequins, and sugar plum fairies dancing through my outfit inspirations. First up, an oversized silk romper with rings of gold!

Weekend Wear

On weekend days it can be hard to motivate beyond throwing on a pair of jeans and a sweatshirt.  Adding interest with cute boots or sneakers is a good way to spice up an otherwise basic and casual outfit.

Printed in Silk

Printed silk scarfs are beautiful.  They are elevated by vintage or intricate patterns and distinctly vibrant colors.  I appreciate when something classic and special transcends into everyday designs.  Like a skirt that seems as if it must have been inspired by a lovely hand printed silk scarf.
