I know everyone has been wearing statement necklaces for quite a while, but I wanted to show you all this little gem that I bought at Target. I wear so much black that I decided I needed to add a little pizazz to my wardrobe and this beauty does the trick!
Over the weekend, I watched a documentary called Vegucation and it changed my life. I have decided to cut all meat and dairy products from my diet. This is a very personal decision and I believe that everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion. People are vegan for reasons as individual as they are. I just wanted to share this important moment with you all.
“When you know better you do better.”
We all have style icons who inspire us and I wanted to share one of my favorite actresses from the 1950′s and 1960′s, Jean Seberg. I adore everything about her from her pixie cut, to her simple makeup, to her classic clothing choices. Of course, some days I feel like channeling someone who is a bit more flashy, but more often than not, when I am in front of my closet, pondering what to wear, I ask myself, “What would Jean choose?”
Who inspires you?
I love traditions and my husband always makes matzah brei during Passover. Add some jelly, agave maple syrup and fruit salad and you’re set!
I went to meet my brother for lunch and the warm, spring weather provided me with the opportunity to wear a new dress I bought at JC Penney. It wasn’t incredibly warm so I thought I’d bring along my favorite leopard scarf. I also wore my ever so comfortable Frye boots. Every mountain girl needs a pair of boots to dress down a girly frock.
Stripes and animal print? Yes, please!
Loving the Kansas sunshine…
This mountain girl headed east towards Kansas for spring break. I was in desperate need of some R&R + family time. My mom snapped some pictures of me before I left for a dinner date with one of my dearest friends.
I found these amazing jeggings at the Gap and fell in love with the wash and the fit. They’re perfect for spring and cool summer nights.
I adore this vintage clutch I’ve had forever and thought the leopard flats from Target would add some interest to my otherwise simple outfit. Turquoise is one of my favorite colors!
Everyone who lives in the mountains know that healthy is hip.
Few beverages are healthier than green juice. As an effort to get more veggies into my life I try to drink my greens as much as possible. This week’s concoction consists of celery, kale, spinach, parsley, carrots, lemon, and green apples. I added a bit of raw honey to help preserve the juice so it lasts a few days. What are your favorite green juice recipes?
I have been fighting a cold all weekend and I thought a quick trip around the local dog park would make me feel better. Check out all the fresh snow and Sopris Mountain in the background.
To stay warm, I wore my North Face goose down parka, Burton knit hat, and my Sorel Caribou boots.
Last weekend I was feeling rather brave and wanted to go a bit more red than blonde. However, red is so hard to maintain and I am still not sold on this particular shade. The best thing about short hair is having the freedom to change your look without worrying about damaging your locks. I hope everyone is having a great weekend and a restful Sunday.
Z and I had the honor of attending Susie Jimenez’s Imagine Fundraiser. Susie is Celebrity Chef Runner Up on Season 7 of Food Network Star and the host of “Sabores de Familia” on Utilisima. The event benefited many different organizations in our mountain community and while each are unique they have one thing in common–children. The organizations benefited were:
River Bridge Regional Center
Early Childhood Network
The event was a great time to catch up with friends from up and down the valley.
I wore a maxi skirt from Target, custom Lucchese Classic caimen alligator boots, and an oxford shirt from Express. My nails were “Really Red” by Essie.
