    I’m currently totally obsessed with the 5 day wardrobe that Luxirare created recently, TOO. Oh my gosh. I got drool all over my keyboard.

OOTD: Office Hours

This summer instead of having our 4-year-old Alice go to her school’s summer program, Dave and I decided to get a nanny. Her name is Kylie and she’s been WONDERFUL over the past two months! I really wish we could keep her all year and just have Alice in this hybrid coparenting-learning-field tripping-coming to the…

Letter from a reader: Changes and consistency

I am a long time reader of your blog and have seen it through its various incarnations. I wondered if you might find inspiration one day to discuss the changes, i.e., the changes in you. For example (and these are purely from memory, so I may very well be misremembering things or just plain getting things wrong):

A Long Day

1. Woke up and read Dril’s favstar to start my day off on the right foot. Dropped Alice off at her first day of summer art camp—sculpture making at the Joslyn Art Museum. 2. Quick shower and blow-dry before Rebecca Forsyth’s Vintage-Inspired Hairstyling salon training class. 3. Got my hair set with my good friend and former Princess Lasertron model Caitlin. 4. Snacks on Jonathan Adler dishes under beautiful boxes of hair color. 5-6. Rebecca setting and styling Caitlin’s hair. 7. The “after.”

OOTD: Buy me, don’t buy me, whatever.

My friend Sarah and I first found these 70s-inspired tees from Funk Life creator Katie Heath on the bods of our friends who were buying them through her Etsy store and posting them on Instagram. After purchasing a few for ourselves, they soon became our favorite tees and we knew we had to carry them at Hello Holiday.

OOTD: Sunset Dress

This weekend I'm at my parents house in Spirit Lake, Iowa. The weather is beautiful and we're finally having some hotter days which makes going out on the boat even more enjoyable. My parents also just finished a long new deck across the shady back of their house where we can sit and watch the lake lap at the rocky shore. Duck families swim by, the neighbor's chickens cluck happily in their roost, and Alice alternates between climbing into my arms and trying to pull people down to the dock to watch her swim.
