Candy Striper

I found this fantastic Alice + Olivia stripey shirt at Houndstooth Boutique a couple weeks ago, and fell in love with the candy colors.

Fresh off a vacation, followed by my family reunion, it’s an easy throw on item – and very forgiving of my overindulgence the past week.

Meanwhile, the kids had more activities schedule during those four days than you can shake a stick at (what does that phrase even mean?!). It seemed that just… [Continue Reading]

    Deep Sigh of Relief
  • I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!).
