The One With The BomBer

24 April 2016


Ok, so one of this season’s MUST HAVES is by far a bomber jacket. If you thought it was ‘in’ last year, it is even MORE ‘in’ this year.

It can be sporty, a bit more chic, a little bit boho, or a little bit playful. Bombers can be found in so many variations for all ages, so why not give it a try?

Also, practically speaking, it is great for ‘inbetween’ weather (such as life in Holland).

And while we’re talking about foreign countries, I love the way most non-native English speaker pronounces “bomBer”. The second ‘b‘ is silent, just to clear that up. 😉

Some of the best bombers can currently be found at:


Happy shopping, friends 🙂

Don’t Forget To Breathe

17 April 2016


One of the things I love most about Holland and the Dutch in general is the quality of life. People know how to appreciate the small things in life around here. Sunshine, a good cup of coffee, free parking (although rare…HA!), a nice dinner out, a bike ride, and a well-kept garden…just to name a few.

There are so many things I miss about America on a regular basis, but what I have learned during my 3 years abroad is that no amount of ‘busy’ can replace a life of contentment. So often we are too focused on where we need to be next that we end up missing out on where we are now.

So don’t forget to sit outside a bit longer, enjoy that cup of coffee a little more than yesterday, and fill your life with things that recharge and energize you. 🙂

Kimono: Nordstrom Rack
Tee: H&M (wide fit and extremely comfy – I have it in 2 colors and wear a size small, highly recommend!!)
Jeans: H&M Shape jeans
Heels: DSW
Necklace: Madewell
Sunglasses: H&M
Clutch: Francesca’s

P.S. How do you like the change of scenery? We finally left the brick wall 😉

The Perfect Yellow

9 April 2016


So I don’t know about you, but I have never considered yellow ‘my color’. In fact, yellow compliments very few people. However, this shade of ‘yellow’ (aka Ocre) compliments most skin types and darker hair colors (plus it will transition flawlessly into fall).

What I love about pop colors is that they speak so loudly but with so little effort.
All you need for this look is your favorite pair of distressed denim, black tee, oversized short sleeve cardigan and brogues.

Spring is the perfect time to try out a sleeveless cardigan (especially for those of you in Texas). You can style it boho or throw it over a sundress for a chic look. Not to mention, it compliments every body type. Not feeling so great in your jeans? We all have those days. Throw on an oversized sweater and feel instantly ‘covered’ (and then treat yourself to an Oreo). 🙂
