Lily Aldridge for Velvet by Graham & Spencer green army jacket from Nordstrom

With the weather warming up, my army jacket has become a staple in my Spring wardrobe. I picked up my Lily Aldridge for Velvet by Graham & Spencer army jacket from Nordstrom a couple months ago. It’s sold out since, but is still available in other colors. Otherwise, the classic green can also be found here. Though the jacket is incredibly slouchy and comfortable, I love the hidden drawstring that nips the silhouette in at the waist for a figure-flattering fit.

The army jacket has no doubt been a hot trend as of late, and I am a big fan of its versatility. It can be worn with anything from denim, to florals…even lace, which you can see from the 4 distinctive looks pictured below.

Kale and Farro Salad

Every once in a while, a recipe comes along that simply changes your life. For me, this was one such recipe. I hate to admit it, but it’s often hard to eat healthy in my house. We’re always running from place to place– work, to appointments, to social engagements. It’s exhausting, and usually the last thing I want to do in the middle or at the end of the day is chop vegetables for a meal. The prep work that goes into creating healthy dishes using fresh ingredients is most often the deterrent in my house. And even though this salad is no exception, the beauty is that it yields a large serving that not only keeps well, but it actually tastes better when all the flavors have had a day or two to meld. I usually make a big bowl on Sunday afternoon, then pull it out for lunches and snacks throughout the week.  Raw Farro ready to cook

And the taste…UNREAL! The simple combination of olive oil and tangy balsamic, mixed with both dried and fresh herbs is remarkably potent, while the farro, containing over 40% more fiber than brown rice, works to lower cholesterol and keep your energy level stable throughout the day. The salad is adapted from this recipe, and after several requests from my instagrammed photo, I decided I couldn’t keep this one a secret any longer. Read Full Article →

Christopher Kennedy Compound Palm Springs 1

This past weekend, the hubs and I took a mini vacay to Palm Springs’ annual Modernism Week, a festival of events celebrating mid-century architecture and design.  I was there mostly to support designers showcased at The Christopher Kennedy Compound, a private residence transformed room by room by some of the industry’s leading talents.

The showcase house is presented by Luxe Interiors + Design, and though they have exclusive photography rights to the full rooms, as a blogger I was able to snap some vignette shots of the amazing spaces. As I walked through the home, I was utterly impressed at the abilities of each designer to convey their own style and point of view, while also maintaining the overlying theme of quintessential retro Palm Springs that unified the space. I will keep you posted on when the Luxe shoot is published, but in the mean time, here’s a peek inside: Read Full Article →
