I don’t shop at J.Crew often, but my search for quality basics (and a glass of wine) led me to their website during the after-Christmas sale. Extra 40% off sale prices? Fill up the cart! Fill up the cart! Do we need it? Don’t think about it. Fill up the cart!  Please tell me you watch Girl Code. Anywhoozle, these kinds of shopping sprees are typically followed by a good dose of buyers remorse, but…

weekend style

What I wore for a busy, chilly Saturday! It got me through a morning at the flower shop, a family reunion, an outdoor water ski show, and a birthday party in total comfort.

out of focus

Since my resident blog photographer and right hand man left our blooming business, I’ve been working on ways to keep this place updated semi-regularly. {Admittedly, some weeks are better than others.} So I’m working on cozying up to my tripod. Which is exactly as awkward as it sounds. Since I don’t have a remote-capable DSLR, I have to set the continuous-shot timer, run in front of the camera before the last warning beep, and pray for…
