Spring! Pink! Pastels!

What do you think of the new pastel trend?

At first, I couldn’t stop thinking about the ’80s… Not something I want to relive.

But, I have to admit, pink has really been growing on me lately. This picture of a woman leaving the Chanel fashion show in Paris is simply stunning. And, because I felt daring, I tried out a mint-colored nail polish at a recent pedicure. It’s actually kind of fun.

Sooo…what do you think? Like it or hate it? What colors are you wearing this Spring?

Cheers, Amy

Striving for Winter Elegance

My goal each year is a casual, effortless elegance in winter. Out West, that means form AND function. There’s women who can pull it off…I’ve seen them walking around… Unfortunately, as a Texas native/Colorado transplant, I’m often several layers shy of perfectly warm. It’s tough to look chic when you’re shivering.

This post may seem a little late in the year…but March can be a vicious month in Colorado. Here’s my inspiration pieces for fashionably *warm* mom uniforms:
