“Style is the answer to everything. A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous thing To do a dull thing with style is preferable to doing a dangerous thing without it To do a dangerous thing with style is what I call art." ~ Bukowski Sometimes I wonder why in the world I have a style blog.

Get Fringed

I swear I don't wear this every single day. Unless it's June. In the French Quarter. Of New Orleans. However. It is that, so it is so. I'm also on a frickin' fringe fix. I found this little bag hanging on the H&M sale rack during my visit to Toronto last week. It was one of those moments where as I walked along

Laughter is an instant vacation. ~ Milton Berle This year I've made such major life changes. I've spent time digging deep with a focus of being the most loving, caring, generous human being to those around me and to the world at large ... And despite that, sometimes things aren't pretty.

The day was made to be one way. And only that. I have nothing sad to write about, she said. And as easy as the breeze came pouring from the river the sun came, and kept on coming. ________ I've been a little quiet over here. Not so in real life. The pace, however, feels different. Here's the approach: let it in

The Daily Dose

  • 05.19.2015
After a weekend of daily doses of vitamin D, a little C (well in my mimosas and on this super adorable bag at least), I'm back in New Orleans and back to real life. Here's what I wore on day 1 of Hangout, and I have to say this is perhaps the chicest beach ensemble I own. From the moment I got dressed I solemnly

New Orleans Jazz Fest: Weekend 2 Recap
