I could think of worse things to do than a stroll down Melrose place, green tea matcha in hand, wearing my fave crops, and my four kiddos by my side. It was not a common Melrose Place scene but I think that’s why I liked it. There were barely any other kids in sight and the surroundings were just gorgeous. The highlight was for sure my ‘kate’ walking casually by the Equipment store and realizing a large ‘kate’ sign was in the window. This may or may not have made bigger sister mad. I’ll let you guess on that one. It afforded some pretty good conversation about how cool and special she felt, and more than a couple good snaps. I told her later it was for Kate Moss and she seemed confused. Haha. Also a highlight was little brother trying to make bunny ears with his small chubby fingers. Ahhhh

All in all a very fun afternoon hanging around Melrose, Alfred’s Tea with some of LA’s best: Janna Carney, Felicia Lasala and Molly Paddon. These types of outtings are best short and sweet. And if you’re curious if we were tired afterwards, you guessed right. Most of my days do not go as planned despite my best laid plans and are far from picture perfect, i.e. some tears and my three year-old only faced the camera if you shouted “lollipop!” However all this real life is what makes life exciting. It was a wise woman who said the days are long, but the years are short. And I know I’ll miss these exhausting and full, lollipop filled, energetic days full of innocence, wonder, naughtiness and love. Just give me all the coffee. Until the next adventure . . .

I’ll be honest, life has been a little nutty lately. Between homework, new places, new itineraries, tons of traffic and just today I dropped my phone in the water. Cue the tears. I need easy basics. Hence the oversize knit, cutoffs, and comfy wedges. All of the above works with my on-the-go lifestyle. Now, let me get back to my bag of rice and a prayer my phone is back to normal.

IMG_7921IMG_7745 IMG_7746One of my favorite ways to transition from winter to spring is a camel coat! I love how flattering it is with most colors. Here, I paired it with an oversize lace top from Veronica Beard and white tennis skirt. For my northern readers, a great pair of white jeans could replace the skirt. Perfect for upcoming bridal showers or brunching. Speaking of, there are so many places I want to try for brunch here in LA. Send over any recommendations. happy weekend!

I think it’s safe to say that LA winter is officially over. These past couple days have been more like spring, messing us up like crazy. My kids keep asking if we can go to the pool. So, if you’re curious, this blush trench is pretty amazing and adapts to both spring and summer. It even manages winter, if you have the luck of living in California. So, it’s also probably safe to say that you’ll be seeing it again.

I’m not sure about you, but for us date night is less about that trying out that hip, new restaurant and more about escaping the zoo, aka children. But whether we hit up Chipotle or The Ivy, it’s always nice to dress up. I mean, it’s still a date, right? Here are 4 date night looks that will carry you from sushi to sake without skipping a beat, and most are under $100. So save room for dessert.

p.s. Basically you need this denim skirt

Normally, we are battling the ice and snow right now. But here we’re being spoiled with mid sixty degree days. Helllloooo LA! Here I found an awesome texture coat from Cleobella that I’m in looooove with. It’s seriously just cotton and warm on chilly nights. So how to wear it? Balance the color and texture with an all black ensemble, small crossbody bag and pop of cobalt. And yes, I’ll be rocking it this weekend. What’s your weekend plans? We’ll spend the weekend unpacking boxes, visiting my cousin in Laguna, and looking for recipes to use with all those avocado and lemons from our backyard. Happy Weekend!

While I’d like to say that all 2500+ miles went smoothly from Chicago to Los Angeles, nobody would believe me. However if smooth is measured by candid hilarity, countless pictures, untold memories and a whole lotta thinking time, then, yes, it was smooth and you can actually believe me. We packed our grey SUV to the max (read ZERO LEG ROOM), so the rest stops were part necessity and part celebration. I’ve never made the drive to CA before, so seeing the sun set in Monument Valley and the San Juan River with floating chunks of ice were something to behold. I also didn’t think I’d see the day when we would have been within feet of hitting a cow in a free range pasture in south Utah, but yup, saw that too. And my five year-old’s reaction? “Ugh, cows these days.” Definitely blame the cows.

Below is my top 5 travel tips before leaving on that 2500 mile trip:

1. All those snacks are worth the lack of leg room; some areas had zero stops for 70 miles.

2. Buy drawing pads from Cracker Barrel. The kids loved them!

3. Pack your all black #OOTD, read leather jacket and busted knee jeans. An all-black outfit is easy to mix with different accessories and covers all milk and mustard stains. My trusty uniform was this:  JEANS / MOCK TURTLENECK / LEATHER JACKET with BROOKS SNEAKS

4. Non-fiction DVD’s for the kids, Kids get schooled and I don’t feel guilty.

5. Save room for exploring. I regretted getting upset that we were going the long way at times, totally forgetting that the JOURNEY IS THE DESTINATION.
