Let me first start by saying, yesterday’s Nicole Frank Fashion Show in Rancho Sante Fe, CA was uh-mazing!! The food, drinks, the stunning house (mansion), and fashion was all to die for! I will be writing a whole separate post about it later this week but for now I wanted to share with you what I decided to wear to this event.

I decided to go for a more casual, stylish look yesterday by wearing these fabulous cropped, plaid, high-waisted pants I picked up from H&M. I was totally having a Rachel Green moment as this is exactly something I would’ve wore in high school, except I would’ve paired them with my burgundy, Doc Martens Mary Jane Platforms instead of the oxfords! BTW does anyone know if they still make those? I miss them ❤

So I know fall is right around the corner and everyone is starting to pull out their cozy sweaters and earth tone colors to showcase what this years trends will be, but I don’t know, I’m just not feeling it yet! Maybe it’s because here in San Diego, it’s still 75 and sunny! The transitioning of seasons will probably be something that’ll take a little time getting used to fashion wise. Trust me, this Mid-West girl isn’t complaining!! I know the temps will drop a little (not much though) and I’ll be pulling out leather jackets and thigh high boots like everyone else, but for now, I’m sticking with my cutoffs …

Bundled.

Ahh, my first post of 2016!! It feels great to be back at it! After taking what felt like a little time off (but in blog years was actually an eternity) to handle a few family affairs like college football visits (Chy), open calls for modeling (Lexie), travels to and from San Diego (Drue), plus not to mention all the holiday stuff going on, I was exhausted!! By the way, much love to my son Kane for being so easy during a time when my other children are so busy! If you follow my Instagram you might have seen that I also managed to fit in a 7 day trip to the Dominican Republic (I’m currently working on that post) right before Christmas. The palm trees, ocean breeze, and relaxing was much needed aanndddd so was the Pina Coladas …

Nevertheless, I returned back to the MidWest to find myself not only the tannest person in town but also the coldest! The temps were low and while everyone else was starting to get used to it, I definitely wasn’t. Coming from 85 degrees and sunny to 20 degrees and gloomy in one day, is not fun at all! But whadda you do?! For the first time this winter, I pulled out my favorite cold weather attire … long coats, scarves, and gloves …
