Weekend in Vegas: Wardrobe Prep

I’m headed to Vegas this weekend with the sistahs (mom and two new sisters, read more on that here) and I’m so excited!

I love traveling, but I’m the worst at packing. I usually just throw a bunch of clothes in a bag, with ideas of outfits in my head, but I never really plan it out. So, in an effort to save space (to of course make room for NEW clothes) and be less stressed deciding what to wear, I’m planning out my outfits for the weekend. What’s funny is for someone who’s such a planner, this actually kind of stresses me out – realizing I can’t change my mind at the last minute about what to wear!

Spring Details For the Home

In our little apartment it’s all about the details. Small changes can update the feel of our home and signal a season change. We don’t  have the resources to completely redecorate for Spring, so above are some easy, affordable ideas to update your home.

Or if all else fails, just get a cute husband and puppy. That always does the trick.

Coachella Fashion Awards

Coachella, according to my Instagram and Twitter feeds: Celebrities come together in a desert to outdress each other’s hippie attire and lounge poolside at picturesque parties. Oh and I think there’s something about music, too.

Sunny Style

Today feels like the first truly spring day we’ve had. As I’ve been doing housework with the doors and windows open and Olli has been luxeriating in the sun, I’ve been daydreaming of permanently warm weather and its accompanying spring style.
