I think we’ve all learned a lot during Covid, and turns out, I’m a nail gal (truly, the insights just keep coming). I didn’t realize how deeply ingrained my bi-weekly nail appointments were until I was stuck at home with raggedy nails and no real way to fix them. Not that I didn’t try! I, […]

One of my hard and fast fashion rules is I don’t buy items for my everyday life unless I can wear them multiple ways. I try and stick to it throughout my wardrobe, but sometimes items like oversized, pink tulle skirts come up and a gal needs an escape hatch so she can rock her […]

Okay, dirty secret time. I love “The Kardashians.” ????I KNOW. It’s a doozy, right? I basically just told you my kids eat Oreos and Coke for breakfast while I snack on Cheerios in wine. Some secrets should STAY SECRET. ???? They are some polarizing ladies, but I think the whole thing is hysterical, and glorious, […]

Outfit is unseasonably winter-y, don’t you think? ???? THANKS, COLORADO WEATHER. Vans sweatshirt (sold out) / Madewell jeans (similar) / Air Jordans / heart belt bag / sunglasses So, you know how I love berating people into buying and doing things that I think will change their lives? HOW HAVE I NOT BEEN DOING LINK […]

Let’s get real. I spend a lot of time in my exercise clothes. Like pretty much most of the time. (If we’re getting really real, I also am pretty stinky most of the time because SHOWERING IS HARD, PEOPLE.) So, going to Alt Summit every year, where it’s a veritable daily catwalk, is VERY EXCITING.

All right, gals, I’m about to give you the best Mom fashion gift ever: THE FANCY SWEATSHIRT. You know the intersection between “looking like you give you a damn” and “so comfy it’s like you’re sitting on your couch”? That’s where the Fancy Sweatshirt resides. You get all the accolades that normally come with wearing, […]

Okay, that is a very dramatic headline, but I’m not messing around with my emotion toward the items below. These are not things I’d be like, “You know what you should try?” These are items I will passionately advocate for EVERY SINGLE TIME I SEE YOU until I finally wear you down enough that you […]

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is (finally!) having an excuse to get dressed up. Sure, I’ve been known to use morning drop off as my personal runway, but the holidays are a LEGIT dress up opportunity. One where no one’s going to ask you if you just came from a wedding […]

HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!! Oh, I’m pretty sure I’m allowed to say it (FINALLY) because it’s almost December or what I like to call “The One Time of Year I Kill at Being a Mom.” Listen, I’m bad at lots of parts of parenting – I have no idea what we eat most of the time (waffles!), […]

Here’s the thing about this costume – 95% of the folks will not have a clue who you are, but the 5% that do? YOU WILL ROCK THEIR WORLD. If you’ve been around me for a hot second, you know that I am obsessed with Ban.do and their fearlessly vulnerable leader Jen Gotch. Yes, it’s […]

Can I tell you how a photo shoot with my gal Milou and Olin typically goes? It always starts out normally. Like I’ll say, “Okay, this post is going to be a round-up of the best boots and booties for Fall so let’s get a couple of shots of my favorite boots from my closet.” […]

Follow my blog with Bloglovin You guys know, I’m nuts about Halloween. All year long, I look forward to this one socially appropriate day where the world is my stage. I have certain criteria I want to hit (I like to be a character, preferably with an accent, and the more dramatic, the better). And, […]

I don’t know if you guys have this in your house, but my kids are really into the word Yes. Like I’ll ask them to set the table and they’re all, “YES! Can we, Mom?” Or I’ll ask if they’d rather have a peanut butter and jelly or ham sandwich in their lunch and they’re […]

Hellooooooo! Oh man, it’s been a long time, you guys, hasn’t it? I’ve been thinking about you non-stop, but ultimately decided I couldn’t do it all. WHAT?!?!? That doesn’t sound like the Kara we know. The Kara we know would have been stressing non-stop about getting it all done and obsessively doing at least something, […]

THIS POST IS SPONSORED BY CUTIES AND THEIR #100DAYSOFSUNSHINE A couple of years ago, I was behind a soldier in line at Chipotle and he was having some trouble getting his credit cards to work. One after another, they were handed back to him and I could sense his rising panic, but I couldn’t figure out if […]

Here’s the thing about Mom Life: If you’re scared or uncertain, it is incredibly easy to get distracted and/or sidetracked. There are invariably an infinite number of things that legitimately need doing and no one’s going to question you sorting out the shed or finally hanging photos (they’re just going to be relieved they don’t […]

OMG, you guys, sorry about the extreme alliteration there but I’m so excited it’s Friday AND we’re moving into a new season! I love Summer, but I’m over my flip flops and dresses and ready to change it up, baby, and get into some jeans and sweatshirts (embroidered, ruffled, or rhinestoned obviously). I’ve put together […]

Listen, you need more fun in your life. I say this with confidence because I have yet to meet a mom (or person) who’s like, “Aww, thanks, but I’m actually totally full up in the fun department. I just can’t take another night out with the ladies and the idea of a side-splitting laugh makes […]

If you guys have been around here at all, you know I believe the fastest route to joy is staying in the moment. If you’re buried in your phone, lost in your head with worry, constantly distracted by to do lists, it’s hard to connect in a deep way with life and the others around […]

Happy Summer, that is almost at its end! WAH?!? After a little bit of “woe is me” this weekend, the kids are I are back on track and ready to devour the rest of Summer with three a days (Remember those from sports in high school where you worked out three times a day? Yeah, […]

A year or so ago, I totally hopped onto the romper/jumpsuit train and I am OBSESSED. You guys, they are truly a mom’s best friend because there is no decision-making involved! They are one piece so you don’t have to decide what top or bottom to wear or wonder if you should tuck your shirt in or realize you have to […]
