It’s February and it’s 71 degrees in Denver. I am wearing a swim top and a t-shirt on my head [which is what my fiance does to keep his forehead from burning. I find it adorable and I’m trying to turn it into a fashion statement]. I suppose I’m training for summer but I know that winter is not done with us yet… But while winter is taking a nap, I’m taking full advantage to get me a tan!! Me need it bad.

I’ve been a little obsessed with jumpers and rompers lately. They’re effortless, minimal, and a speedy outfit choice without having to overthink anything. [There’s a catch though… Going to the bathroom sucks] I’ve got 8-9 pieces in my closet right now and I’m slowly collecting more. I scored this Tavik romper ON SALE and basically spent the entire weekend living in it. The romper was the perfect outfit for a Saturday backyard party, and then transitioned to a night downtown with some pointed flats and a leather jacket. I would have slept in it. I almost wore it to Sunday brunch the next day but I thought it would be a bit “much”. No one likes an outfit repeater. Which only means more rompers!

I fell off of the grid again. It’s been months since I’ve posted and I’m actually quite ashamed of myself. I’m going to have a 10 second pity party and get it out – I’ve been in a slump lately and haven’t had much motivation or drive. [this could also be due to the fact that I haven’t worked out in more than a year, hence the lack of energy and inability to fit into some of my favorite outfits] My inner artist has been hibernating for the past few months and my creative drive came to a halt. But lucky for me, Denver Style Magazine hosted a night of fashion and pulled me out of my coma!

Denver Style Magazine launched their No. 4 issue and celebrated with a night out. I dragged one of my besties for an evening of cocktails, mingling, and some of the best style-spotting I have seen in a while. Denver is growing and the fashion is clearly keeping up. Style trend of the night: jumpers. I saw at least 8 women sporting their jumpers. I felt like a outcast for not wearing mine [which was in the trunk of my car, buried in a duffel bag of potential outfits… clearly I wore the wrong one]. I am all about onesies and tonight was confirmation to wear mine more often. They’re kind of in right now.

Now that my creative muse is reactivated and awake, I will be posting more often. Pinky promise. It’s amazing what one night out can do. Especially when surrounded by fellow fashionistas.

My life has been in a whirlwind the past couple of months [hence my horrible lack of blogging, yet again]. In my defense though, a lot has happened lately. I moved into a new house, I watched one of my best friends get married, I spend a girls-weekend in the mountains, I’ve been working nearly 6 days/week, I had a Midwest road trip, and I spent a lot of time on my newly furnished patio which I am quite obsessed with. Looking back, it’s all gone by in a flash.

And speaking of flash, I finally had some downtime to go through some photos on my Nikon camera. This is what I found. Some quick snapshots and memories of the past few weeks. It was a pleasant visual reminder that there were a lot of great moments in the middle of the summer chaos. I think I needed that.

Now I’ll be getting ready for Wanderlust in Aspen. Yoga + mountains. Stay tuned!

rested and restless

I think the world takes a breath on Sundays. The day of rest. My favorite day of the week. It’s my time to sleep in, drink coffee without rushing to work, maybe grab brunch, and spend the day with no plans. I think that’s what I like most about it – no plans. I intentionally keep my Sundays open so I can enjoy asking myself, “what should I do today?”. Today was easy to answer. It was 91 degrees outside and I wanted to longboard. I was rested and restless.

I feel that I’ve been very attached to my longboard lately. Maybe it’s because it’s getting warmer outside. Or maybe it’s because I’m still fascinated by big bertha’s makeover. Or…maybe it’s because I can feel my car self-destructing and I need to reinforce my next transportation mode. [I was actually in the best shape of my life when big bertha was my ‘car’…might not be a bad thing if my car breaks down] I’m also working on a project that involves girls + longboarding. More on that later though. I haven’t really thought of it enough to start talking about it yet.

Enjoying my rested and restless Sunday.
