Happy Friday!!!!!!!! IT’S THE WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hmm hmm. I apologize for that. Anyway, perhaps it’s because, oh, you know, I’m planning a wedding. But I am seeing wedding-inspired style EVERYWHERE. And I love it. I’m particularly seeing more blue shoes than I’ve ever seen in my life. Let’s take a look at some of the best blue shoes I’ve found. This is the “it” trend right now– and a way for a bride to incorporate “Something Blue.” And I love it…. Read more »

What robs us of the innocence of youth Is not age It is the awakening of self It is the realization of selfishness It is knowing that you have The capacity to hurt the ones you love And that sometimes you want to And this tragic and beautiful self awareness Is why we can never be children again And why some of us have never grown up *** xoxo, Kaitlin

And I’m not talking about this forehead zit. It will not come as a surprise to you that I am a busy girl. I work hard, I play hard, and that makes me, given a spare moment, laze hard. I’m also a chronic over-committer, to the detriment of the “boring” things in my life, like laundry.

Happy Monday!!!! (Is there such a thing? Shut up, Kaitlin, and go back to bed like the rest of the world.) I hope you each had an amazing weekend. I certainly did. I’m going to cut myself off before I wax poetic about loving being in love and get to the real talk. Makeup. Please keep in mind that this was a runway look for Chanel, and as such, it’s messy, it’s bold, and it’s a little more than probably… Read more »

IT’S FRIDAY!!!!! Such joy, children, such joy. This is probably going to be the best weekend of my life. Mainly because every weekend is the best weekend of my life. Meanwhile, this week I’ve developed a love affair with the women’s blouse. I don’t know why I was blinded to its charms for so long, but I’ve seen the error of my ways and I am fully in support of a good blouse. Here are some of my favorites from… Read more »
