Style File /// The 7th Fix

Happy Monday! This weekend ended on a sour note for all us Pacific Northwest folks who were cheering on our Seahawks. I’m a total bandwagon fan, but sported my tee and fancy headband with pride. I even joined in the actual game watching in the final 2 minutes and thus, got to see all the […]

 Panda Raglan – Kid + Kind /// Skirt – Target ///  Fleece Leggings – Target /// Boots – Nordstrom This girl. I really really like her! All moms love their kids, we usually like them too. Eh, sometimes they’re difficult and have rough phases, then the love is there but the like is on pause […]

Style File — A Tale of Shooties

With a picturesque snowscape it only seemed natural that we would attempt a family photo on our Leavenworth trip. I mean, all sane mothers attempt such a feat around the holidays, right?

Style File — The Post Thanksgiving Family Edition

Here’s the thing … Dominic is a lumber guy. He loves it and will probably be in the building industry for most of his career. It’s a good gig, but I do squeak often about the lack of paid holidays. Thankfully, Thanksgiving is one of the days he gets off so we grasped the daylight hours, […]

Mini Style File — Minnetonka Kids

I wish you could have all heard the gasp of excitement when Jemma opened her package from Minnetonka. Girl couldn’t have been more excited to see purple boots.  “Mom! They’re purple! My most favorite color in the whole WILD world! How did they know?!?” I’ll always love that she says “whole wild world” … I can’t bear […]
