Bloomingdales Loves Stripes and Leopard

Cognac and Black. One of my very favorite combos that admittedly I don’t sport as often as I should.  But it was love and first sight with this Striped top from Eileen Fisher, I immediately was all….”ADD TO THE CART!”  I previously snagged this Leo Jacket from Bloomingdales and knew the minute this Eileen Fisher arrived from Bloomingdales, it would be the PERFECT complement to the Leo.  Eileen Fisher has such an EFFORTLESS way of creating classics that will stand the test of time

The Holidays in My Soma PJs

In a game of “Who Knows Mom Better,” the girls screamed in unison “JAMMIES” when asked would mom prefer, “High Heels or PJs?”  And they’re oh so right.  If you know me, you know I LOVE I mean L-O-V-E me some jammies.  I have zero shame about wearing them all day…hopping over to the Starbucks drive thru…..doing the school drop off in my beloved pajamas.  They’re my clothing of choice.  I do consider myself a bit of a PJ Connoisseur quite honestly.  And so with that in mind, I take my PJ recommendations very seriously….meaning, I Ain’t gonna feed you some pajama fluff.  Gang…these SOMA pajamas are L E G I T.

The Conrad Chicago — Stay Inspired

If y’all followed along our family’s fall break getaway to Chicago last week, then you know we had an absolute blast (see exhibits one, two, and three)!  Everything from the Shedd Aquarium, Lincoln Park Zoo with my best friend from childhood, Shopping on Michigan Avenue, Hamilton for date night , a fabulous dinner at Maple & Ash, to an even more fabulous stay at The  Conrad Chicago, it was truly such a wonderful trip filled with great memories!  And while I could easily elaborate on all the reasons our trip was fantastic, truly, I’ve gotta give credit where credit is due…The Conrad Chicago knocked it out of the park
