A-line skirt / Fit n’ Flare’ / skater skirt…whatever you want to call it. I’m loving it. The flare of the skirt adds width to my hips. This skirt works on all levels because of the horizontal stripes. The structured form allows the skirt to run a little short and still withstand a little bit of wind. I wore this as part of my engagement session in San Continue reading →
Today I am playing with culottes I purchased from one of my Target runs. What are culottes? Essential wide-legged capris that look like midi skirts, but are actually pants. Remember skorts? Same idea of giving women the freedom to run around in pants, but the feminine look of a skirt.
This light airy dress is the perfect spring time piece. It comes with a tie around the waist, making it look like a wrap dress and straps that help hold the sleeves up. The tie at the waist helps accentuate the natural waistline. The best thing Continue reading →
If not done right, geometric pieces can be too busy and overwhelm a petite frame. The mixture of medium and small patterns work on this maxi dress.

It’s your world.
Like hot sauce but can’t find any good ones at the store? Make your own. That’s what I did. I grew some habanero peppers and create my own spicy hot sauce with all the heat and deliciousness minus all the processed ingredients. Super simple and easy to make.
After dropping my dogs off at the vet for their annual check-up, David and I strolled around the shopping plaza. It had just sprinkled a little bit the night before so the air was crisp. As I sat there with the sun beaming on my back, David took a few snapshots of me while the yogis in a nearby class watched. We entertained them and enjoyed a few laughs, grabbed breakfast, and carried on with our great morning.
Wearing a blazer with a mini body contour dress is a great way to class up your outfit. I threw a one button casual blazer, like the one from J. Crew, over a body contouring cocktail dress for a night out with my finance. There’s a beautiful winery by our house that has wine and dance nights every so often, so when we feel like going out to paint the town red, that’s where we go. It’s hard to find dresses with dramatic necklines like this, Continue reading →
Avocado Stuffed Omelet anyone? Yes, please.
Check out my latest avocado omelet receipt. It’s made with fresh parsley from my garden and eggs from my hens, Hennessy and Coo-coo. The grapes are from Costco, but hopefully I will have my own this summer. I’ve also started my own avocado tree, so in 3+ years, I’ll be harvesting fresh avocados from my yard. Watch out!
