Costa Rica, in photos...


I just wanted to share a few photos from our girls' trip to Costa Rica in January.  We rang in 2013 under a sky full of fireworks, ate fish tacos every single day, learned how to surf and spent a beautiful, sunny day sailing on a catamaran.  It was an unbelievable trip, with a group of the most amazing friends a girl could ask for.

*If you find yourself in Costa Rica, I highly recommend checking out the Tico Adventure Lodge in Samara and Sailing Hibiscus in Tamarindo!

Holiday Dress Shopping: Madewell Style




Okay, I know I say this every. single. year. but I feel like I blinked and it was December.  If you are anything like me, I always find myself in a panic trying to find a last minute dress to wear to holiday functions.  This year I decided I would simplify my life and plan my outfits ahead of time.  I spotted this dress at Madewell and had to try it on.  To put it simply, I didn't want to take it off.  Simple, festive and flattering, this dress made me feel like a million bucks.  I liked it so much I bought it in red and black.  I wore the black version to a friend's wedding rehearsal and again at Thanksgiving dinner with tights and boots.  I'm saving the red one for a few Christmas functions and can't wait to wear it with heels and a statement necklace.  Holiday dress shopping, done!

Vancouver, in photos...











As summer draws to and end I thought I would share a few photos from my quick trip to Vancouver in July.  A few close girlfriends, lots of long lunches by the sea and an impromptu rowboat excursion on Vancouver Island made for a great getaway!
