Photo Diary: Mama

Jun 26, 2015

This year, we were lucky enough to celebrate Mother's Day, with both our mothers, under one roof. Add in 2/3 of their children, two hounds, a hike, brunch, and well, the weekend was kinda totally awesome.

Minus my mother lecturing my driving, through a rainstorm, at 8p in the country. That, was a stress sandwich. My palms are sweating just thinking about it.

Thankfully for us, it was Food Truck Friday, so we swung by to grab food before we hit the road.

Snacks, mandatory.

It is not a celebration without cake.

Cool kid.

Family breakfast.

You wear my sunglasses, I take your picture.


My husband climbed up, and leapt off that cliff as a child. Repeatedly.

Insert wide-eyed-horror emoji.


Cue Boys II Men. Note: I weep every-time I hear this song.

Squeezing in a little history.


T-minus one month till Jennifer comes home for a visit. Not that I'm counting.

Dip cone.

Dinner alfresco.

Miles and Cora playing Barbies. 

No barbies (or tiny accessories) were eaten. Thank goodness.

Also, I live for the lighting in their family room. 


Tiny feet.

Where is he looking? Pretty sure my eyes are closed. 

This one's a framer folks.

Every Summer Has A (Stylish) Story

Jun 25, 2015

Picnics. Outdoor Concerts. Humidity. 

Summer is here my friends. 

Despite the tropical climate of St. Louis (read: all humidity, all the time) and my stellar ability to sweat profusely upon stepping outdoors, Eshakti's {post sponsor!} summer collection is easy, breezy, and(!) custom made for even the most unique of body types, i.e. yours truly and the woes of her non-torso. 

 (initial Eshakti thoughts, HERE)

Side note: THIS is what hungover looks like, don't ask why I felt the need to document.

Moving on.

I've found a "few" things my closet is screaming for: this floral print, every-single maxi dress, this polka dot number, and -- chambray jumpsuit (drops mic). The newest collections: Bohemian, Retro, oh my! -- coupled with the site enhancements (and sales galore!) makes shopping as easy as one, two, -- full (shopping) cart. 

What? This old thing? Had it for years. 


If you shop at the speed of light with nary a regard for what your measurements are and no measuring tape in sight, fear not -- your sizes are stored handy dandy in your account to make customizing a cinch. Which reminds me, I should probably do that...

Don't leave, I have a point, (pinky) promise.

Eshakti is giving Y29 readers $35 off with the code: YEARTWENTYNINE35 thru 6/30/15. 

Happy customizing.

You are gonna look (and feel!) FANTASTIC.
