Mother's Day Scarves

Get ready for festival season

The Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in Southern California last week informally marks the beginning of festival season throughout the United States. And what I saw at the Coachella event truly sets the mood for summer dressing. This is the place to see and to be seen. Take note of all the maxi dresses, ripped jeans, cropped tops, gladiator sandals, hippie-chic […]


Ready for a warm-weather getaway?

Summer is just around the corner, and weekend getaways to the family cabin, Chicago and Colorado are already on my mind.
