Swinging French Girl Style

I’m going way back for Friday Flashback with this Françoise Hardy song. I can’t help but dance whenever I hear it. Her voice is just so lovely. It’s also hard to overlook her innately chic French girl style. A few months ago, I had my hairdresser cut long, eyelash skimming bangs, hoping for a Françoise […]

Denim Skirt Dilemma

My latest quest is finding the perfect denim skirt. It has to be just the right length, a soft and comfortable (but not too distressed) wash and have a super flattering fit. This is not an easy task. First of all, making the booty look good is harder to do in a denim skirt than […]

Don’t Sweat It

Doggie Don’t in Paris

In just a few short days my husband and I will be in Paris, celebrating our wedding anniversary. While I’ve been excited for months, I’m experiencing a bit of anxiety.

Resort Living

There are so many days when I just want to throw on the same boxy linen sweater and skinny jeans or white t-shirt and baggy jeans. I guess I could just buy the same three or four things in different colors for the ultimate mix and match closet. This would make things easy, but it […]
