Heels. Tight Jeans. Croissants. So Haute.


Stacia. M.H.Bread and Butter Bakery. Marin County, California. 2015.


I spotted Stacia on a weekday morning wearing high heels and tight jeans, all while balancing coffee and a kid. This is a rare sighting in the cute town of San Anselmo in Northern California.  I wasn’t surprised to learn Stacia had just moved to Marin County from San Francisco…and I was quite happy to see a mom making a solid effort, early on a weekday.

M.H. Bakery, www.mhbreadandbutter.com is my go to spot to write and eat “breakfast pastries”. I know, I probably shouldn’t be eating pastries so frequently, but I feel so Parisian, sitting in a cafe sipping coffee…how do they stay so thin again?


Fashion Notes: Tank: Halogen from Nordstrom, Sweater: H&M, Jeans: Joie, Wedges: Banana Republic, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff

A little advice – jeans should be REALLY fitted! Especially if you don’t have an ample back side.

Most recently, Stacia worked at POPSUGAR, a lifestyle, pop-culture site.  www.popsugar.com 


Haute Irish Bloke. San Francisco Drop-Off.


David. Dad. Business Executive at Gap. Fillmore Street. San Francisco. July 2014.

Fashion Notes: Jacket: Scotch and Soda, Clothing and shoes: Banana Republic/Gap

David works for Gap corporate and makes great use big brand apparel.  He’s a well dressed Irish bloke living in San Francisco with his family.  How cute are his kids peaking at the pastries in the enclosed case – what a great moment.

I spent the day yesterday “styling” my cousin, and he purchased jeans at Scotch & Soda – a company founded in Amsterdam – the apparel has a great European look that’s almost regal. David looks so put together and classic, while maintaing a very cool, preppy style –

Road Trippin’ Mamma. Tennessee is on FIRE at Drop-Off.


Andrea. The Riverwalk. Chattanooga, Tennessee. April 2014.

Fashion Notes: Shorts: White House Black Market, Black tank: Banana Republic, Gladiator Sandals: Joie, Sunglasses: Versace, Earrings and Necklace: Charriol

All black is chic..it just is..

Andrea and her two young kids are taking a real old school road trip with no road map or plan–as Andrea described, ” We threw our stuff in the car and have been driving where the wind has taken us!”, sounds pretty fun to me.

In addition to being an obviously fun mom, Andrea is a Clinical Psychologist in private practice in Atlanta and also the Disaster Response Network Coordinator for the Georgia Psychological Association.
