Easter Mountain Weekend

Hi Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.  I was lucky enough to spend the entire weekend with my family.  Jonny, Zoe, my mom and I spent the Easter weekend enjoying Spring Back to Vail which was an absolute blast! Anytime you are able to ski in shorts/leggings and grill mountain top it is sure to be a great time!  If you watched my Instagram story, you saw that Jonny participated in the World Pond Skimming Championship.  If you don't know what I am talking about (here) is a little video, and no he didn't make it across... he is already planning out his strategy for next year!

As we get older, it seems quality time with our families is harder to coordinate.  With busy schedules and double (sometimes triple or quadruple) the family to visit on holidays, it can sometimes be hard to slow down and truly enjoy the time with our loved ones.  My heart is always so full after time with mine - as I am sure yours is too! And I am always reminded how important making time for quality time is.

I originally brought this dress ($24) and blazer for Easter brunch (please excuse the wrinkles... I packed in about 3 minutes 🙈) but it was so sunny and warm I ended up wearing it to dinner one night instead.  My furry blazer is currently sold out, but I am sure will be restocked soon.   My dress is great for lunch meetings and I have a friend or two that I have already promised to lend it to for their bridal showers.  The weight makes it a perfect spring/summer transition dress and I love the bow and fringe details.  

Each spring I always stock up on things that I know I will need next fall/winter because you can always get the best deals.  For me, right now, I know I am looking for skis and snow pants (I like these and these).  But it is also a great time to snag boots that you have been eyeing! I like these $70 ( 5 colors!), these $59, and these $70.  Have you found any great spring sales?  I would love to know what you are looking for!

Have a wonderful day!

SpringTime Cruising

Hi Friends,

 

I hope you had a nice weekend and great start to your week.  Jonny I were excited to have a little staycation in Boulder this past weekend, but ended up only staying at the beautiful St. Julien for about six hours because Mr. Brown got very sick and we ended up spending the better part of our Saturday at the vet :(.  Not at all where he or we wanted to be.  Thankfully, about five hours after first arriving they figured out he had a bone stuck in his belly and were able to fix him all up!

After a fun brunch with Denver's loveliest bloggers Sunday morning, it was so great to spend the day outside enjoying the sunshine with my boys.  Jonny and I often get stuck in our Lohi bubble - we love our neighborhood, so rarely leave on weekends unless we have to.  However, we have found a quick ride on the Cherry Creek Trail to another neighborhood we love (and the neighborhood Jonny grew up in), South Pearl Street.  We both agree, there is no better way to spend a sunny day than cruising between two of our favorite neighborhoods in Denver on a beautiful spring day!

off the should peasant top ($128) also love this one ($64), this one ($105), and this one ($108) // TopShop Jeans ($70) // Straw Panama Hat ($20) // Tory Burch Crossbody ($295) // lace up bootie ($149) // faux pearl studs ($30) // similar cruiser ($470)

Guys, I snapped up this pretty top ($128) last week and it has quickly become one of my favorites!  I have been loving the off the shoulder trend and can't seem to get enough of them - I also love this one, this one, and this one.  While out and about last week I also found these great TopShop jeans ($70).  It is hard for me to find jeans that hit my ankle exactly where they should because I am not the tallest gal... or even close to it at 5'2(ish) and these fit perfectly (no hemming required!) right off the bat! For sizing, I am wearing a 25.

Thinking of you all today and praying for comfort in Brussels and peace in our beautiful world.

Hello From the Other Side

OMG - HIIIIIIIIIIII!!!!

I have missed you guys!  So sorry for my longer than planned absence from the blog.  I was worried while we were preparing for our trip that posting from half way around the world would be difficult... doable, but difficult, but it proved to be more like impossible to find wifi that was compatible with my site.  At first it was nerve-wracking, and a little frustrating, but I am now so thankful for the break that forced me to completely unplug and allowed me to focus fully on spending time with Jonny and soaking in memories from such a life-changing trip.  I can't wait to share more from our adventure with you all!! Currently compiling all of our pictures and will be posting all of the details from SE Asian travels soon!

Full disclosure, this was probably not appropriate attire for playing tug of war with Mr. Brown on a windy day, but I just can't say no to him - especially after being away for so long.  As much fun as Jonny and I have traveling, it is so hard for us to be away from Charlie Brown for extended periods of time (can you blame us?!).  I heard foot steps one night during our trip and woke up in a panic thinking it was Charlie (#crazydoglady).

I love the color of my dress from Stitch Boutique.  Stitch is an adorable store located just up the road from me, that my friend, Jourdan (here), recently introduced me to - can't thank her enough!  The exact color of my dress is only available in stores, but in white here, and very similar here.   This faux leather jacket is so comfy and ideal for spring evenings (also a steal $92).  I think horn pendants like this one or this one are so fun and unique and add a touch of edge to a clean and colorful outfit.  Also... you can find Mr. Brown and me in floral sunnies like these ($11) for the foreseeable future 👓.

I have linked all outfit details and some additional, similar favorites below! 

Hope you have been great!! Let me know if you have any questions or comments or something you would like me to discuss!  Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Girl Talk

Happy FRIYAY, friends!!

Jonny and I have a lot of travel in front of us today.  First stop Tokyo then on to Bangkok... easily the longest flight(s) I have ever been on, and I know my anticipation and excitement to start our two week adventure is not going to make things go faster, whatsoever.  Apologies in advance if the blog is a little quiet while we are away - I am not exactly sure what our wifi situation is going to look like.

A few weeks ago I found out a dear friend of mine, Jourdan, was moving back to town.  She has been in LA for the past 3 years so I practically jumped out of my chair when she told me the news!... adding icing to the cake - she also just announced she is pregnant!! So of course, I was beyond thrilled when Jim Guttau, from the Four Seasons, asked if a friend and I would like to try out their signature February facial, "Becoming a Bond Girl" (um, why not 🙋🏼).  I knew exactly who I wanted to take!

There is literally diamond powder in the mask that made us feel absolutely glowy!  After our facials, Jourdan reminded me that pregnant girls get hangry!  It was (obviously) a very windy day so we decided to head to an adorable coffee shop that I have been loving

I love the streamlined look of a classic trench and the weight is perfect for those windy days :).  Both of our looks are from the adorable Stitch Boutique.  My trench is sold out online, but they still had a couple left last I checked (also love this onethis one, and this one!).  My jeans are Flying Monkey - I swear by this brand!  After wearing these bad boys it is hard to spend money on designer jeans ever again.  The fit is amazing and you can't beat the $68 price tag!  All of my sweet accessories are available at Stitch (bralett, Denver necklace, horn necklace) - or shop them and my favorite lightweight trenches below!

Have a wonderful weekend! Wish us luck on 25+ hours of travel ahead (yikes!).
