Just before Christmas a few girlfriends and I took a little weekend getaway to New Orleans, and it was seriously MAGIC. Being from Colorado I’m a firm believer in White Christmases, but it seems like because the South doesn’t get snow, they go over-the-top with lights and decorations until every palm tree, railing, and bar top is dripping with Christmas trimmings.
I count myself VERY lucky to know the woman behind today’s post. We met when I was a twiggy sixth grader with a big mouth and even bigger opinions. Through the years she’s been one of my biggest supporters and largest advocates for my own self-worth. She’s one of the most generous people I know in every aspect of her life, and one thing she’s given abundantly beyond her time and energy is her advice. Below is some thoughts she wanted to share with all of you beautiful readers. Thanks for being on my team Dana, and challenging me to be the best version of myself. Love you!

Last week I had a friend ask me if I was boycotting Instagram.
She’d noticed that I hadn’t posted anything in a while. Two months to be exact. But the truth is, I just haven’t had much to say.

I know that it’s a little late in the season to still be posting outfits with beanie hats and leather jackets, but let’s be real… Colorado had a freak snow storm last week so I think I can get away with it.
Spring has officially showed up in Denver, rain showers and all. So I finally feel like I can start wearing bright colors, lighter layers and fun patterns…cue Gingham.
There’s literally so many things about this look that I love. First, I’m obsessed with this Gingham button-up. I’ve been seeing Gingham everywhere this season, and I especially love the contrasting sleeves on this top.
All I ask of you:
Be my slow-motion dance.
Be my birthday earthquake.
Be my spiral marble staircase in the middle of a Vermont meadow.
Be my handstand on a barstool,
my whirlwind week in clown school,
my joke shared with a Siberian shaman
while shopping for T-shirts at Sears.
Be my last because.
