One of my hard and fast fashion rules is I don’t buy items for my everyday life unless I can wear them multiple ways. I try and stick to it throughout my wardrobe, but sometimes items like oversized, pink tulle skirts come up and a gal needs an escape hatch so she can rock her […]

Okay, dirty secret time. I love “The Kardashians.” ????I KNOW. It’s a doozy, right? I basically just told you my kids eat Oreos and Coke for breakfast while I snack on Cheerios in wine. Some secrets should STAY SECRET. ???? They are some polarizing ladies, but I think the whole thing is hysterical, and glorious, […]

Outfit is unseasonably winter-y, don’t you think? ???? THANKS, COLORADO WEATHER. Vans sweatshirt (sold out) / Madewell jeans (similar) / Air Jordans / heart belt bag / sunglasses So, you know how I love berating people into buying and doing things that I think will change their lives? HOW HAVE I NOT BEEN DOING LINK […]

Let’s get real. I spend a lot of time in my exercise clothes. Like pretty much most of the time. (If we’re getting really real, I also am pretty stinky most of the time because SHOWERING IS HARD, PEOPLE.) So, going to Alt Summit every year, where it’s a veritable daily catwalk, is VERY EXCITING.

All right, gals, I’m about to give you the best Mom fashion gift ever: THE FANCY SWEATSHIRT. You know the intersection between “looking like you give you a damn” and “so comfy it’s like you’re sitting on your couch”? That’s where the Fancy Sweatshirt resides. You get all the accolades that normally come with wearing, […]

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is (finally!) having an excuse to get dressed up. Sure, I’ve been known to use morning drop off as my personal runway, but the holidays are a LEGIT dress up opportunity. One where no one’s going to ask you if you just came from a wedding […]

Can I tell you how a photo shoot with my gal Milou and Olin typically goes? It always starts out normally. Like I’ll say, “Okay, this post is going to be a round-up of the best boots and booties for Fall so let’s get a couple of shots of my favorite boots from my closet.” […]

Hellooooooo! Oh man, it’s been a long time, you guys, hasn’t it? I’ve been thinking about you non-stop, but ultimately decided I couldn’t do it all. WHAT?!?!? That doesn’t sound like the Kara we know. The Kara we know would have been stressing non-stop about getting it all done and obsessively doing at least something, […]

Listen, you need more fun in your life. I say this with confidence because I have yet to meet a mom (or person) who’s like, “Aww, thanks, but I’m actually totally full up in the fun department. I just can’t take another night out with the ladies and the idea of a side-splitting laugh makes […]

Happy Summer, that is almost at its end! WAH?!? After a little bit of “woe is me” this weekend, the kids are I are back on track and ready to devour the rest of Summer with three a days (Remember those from sports in high school where you worked out three times a day? Yeah, […]

A year or so ago, I totally hopped onto the romper/jumpsuit train and I am OBSESSED. You guys, they are truly a mom’s best friend because there is no decision-making involved! They are one piece so you don’t have to decide what top or bottom to wear or wonder if you should tuck your shirt in or realize you have to […]

The summer before I went to college, I worked as a lifeguard and saved all my money, which was intended to be my spending money for the year. Within the first month of school, I had spent almost every penny of it on shoes. Every penny. By October I had to get a job or […]

Oh, you guys, I am having a fashion moment, which is AMAZING and TOTALLY TERRIBLE. It’s ridiculously fun because everywhere I go, there are florals, and bright colors, and bold accessories, all which are my idea of fashion heaven. But, it’s terrible because everywhere I go I see florals, and bright colors, and bold accessories, and my heart […]

I have finally come to the conclusion that, when it comes to swimsuits, I can’t wear the cheapies anymore. I used to be able to get by with a Target Juniors’ special where it’s basically a bit of fabric; since kids, I need all the accoutrement to hold me in (and up) if I want to smooth […]

Because we’ve lived in San Francisco for a long time almost everything I own is for Fall. This is a little known fact about San Francisco – tourists, take note! – but, while you’d think because it’s in California it’s going to be all sunny and warm, it is in fact most often foggy and chilly, especially […]

You are going to probably need to sit down for this, but I have FOUR blog posts to tell you about. Count ’em, FOUR! I’ve been a busy bee over on Momtastic and have been assessing hair and make up trends and deciding if it’s possible to wear hats without looking like a nerd and […]

A couple of times a year, my younger sister will come over and help me go through my closet, sorting through the items that I’ve attached way too much sentimental value to and really should no longer wear (a tropical, cropped bandalero springs to mind) while mocking me back into a fashionable wardrobe. And every single […]

Among my sisters there has always been a firm division line between those of us who believe fashion should be functional and comfortable (yoga pants are totally work-appropriate!) and those of us who are willing to sacrifice for style (4-inch heels are totally baseball game appropriate!). I’ll let you guess, which side I come down […]

You guys, I have great news! You know how mind-bogglingly terrible it is to shop for swim suits? Turns out it’s proportionately as awesome to shop for swim cover ups. Pretty much every one is super-flattering and fits like a dream and since they’re designed to be flowy the pressure is off – it basically just comes down to […]

Do you guys ever do that thing where you see a really cool gal when you’re shopping and you start following her around a little bit to see what she picks up and then before you know it you’re full-on stalking her, barely hiding the fact that you are single white female-ing her all over the […]

I know I’ve mentioned this, but when I was in my twenties I backpacked around Europe for several months wearing heels and skirts every single day, because, you know, nothing quite says “backpacker” like a 50-pound pack paired with 3-inch wedges and a micro-mini. That, my friends, is a true commitment to fashion. With kids, though, […]

You guys, I hate to break it to you, but I am cool now. And not even “mom cool”, but the kind of cool where people with skateboards talk to me on public transportation. The kind of cool where other people with brightly colored hair give me chin nods and 20-somethings discuss my outfits when they […]

Did you guys feel like February was the weirdest month? On one hand, it ended as soon as it started so I feel like I barely remember it already; on the other hand, it was crammed so full I felt a bit like I was holding my breath until March finally arrived. But, now, we can […]

This is a big week, you guys. On Wednesday I head to Salt Lake City for Alt Summit to convene with a bunch of other bloggers and creatives, where we’ll put our heads down and very studiously study the ins and outs of the Internet, discuss the finer points of SEO and web optimization late into the night, […]

There is a very good chance you are sick to death of my driveling on about jumpsuits. Believe me, I totally understand (as do my husband, sister, best friend, and anyone who’s come within 50 feet of me this past year). If that’s the case, may I interest you in some winged sandals? Or perhaps direct […]

It is a testament to how exhausted I’ve been these past few years that our Halloween costumes have been LAME. Normally, Chris and I are nuts for Halloween; one of the reasons I fell in love with the man is because I suggested throwing a Halloween party where we had to dress up as something that […]

I know that we’re firmly in Fall and I’m supposed to be posting outfits with boots and scarves, but it’s finally nice out here in San Francisco, so, honeys, you’re getting more jumpsuits. Oh, you didn’t know that I’m obsessed with jumpsuits? Let’s put it this way, if you’ve seen me in the past six […]

*I also just realized it’s not really a “sneak peek” if the post is already up, but I couldn’t figure out what else to call it that sounded cool. A small part of a larger post? A couple of pics from a photo shoot? Two pics out of 15? WHATEVER. Here’s your sneak peek… I […]

So, I wasn’t going to post this outfit for SO MANY REASONS. One, it’s pretty lame. I mean, it’s a pair of striped jean shorts with a tank top and my diaper bag turned purse (which I’m still obsessed with and truly goes with everything). Nothing too aspirational, but then there’s this photo above and turns out there […]

Do you guys ever have those days where you leave the house and look down and think, “What the hell am I wearing?” They have been happening a bit too frequently lately. I’ve gotten into this cycle where we go to the gym first thing in the morning, and then, because we’re already out, I run […]

Remember when we went to Mexico? What I left out (because I was in such a tizzy) was what a tizzy I went into right before we left, trying to find a swimsuit that fit. Here’s the thing. I’m totally fine that my bod ain’t what it used to be, BUT I knew we were […]

Wasn’t yesterday’s post so fun with all the little baby boy clothes and that cowboy hat which was just to die for, right? I just love a baby boy in…BLAH. BLAH. BLAH. Give me the good stuff. You know what I’m talking about – BABY GIRL CLOTHES! I need me some ruffles and bloomers and I […]

Do you guys ever have that experience when you’re shopping for kids clothes and you think, “Why in the frickety-frack can’t someone PUH-LEASE make this in my size?” And then you may or may not proceed to buy up the entire store, because, yes, while you may be wearing stained yoga pants for the third […]

The thing about living in San Francisco is that hipsterness is pretty much ubiquitous with living here. So much so that, after a while, you stop even noticing the carnival gear, oversized glasses, and rat tails. And while some of it can be annoying (I don’t care how delicious your hand-poured coffee is, I want […]

Let’s say you’re seven months pregnant and you decide to take a little weekend jaunt with one of your best friends. You know where I would go? No, not Palm Springs or a fancy spa in the Arizona desert. I would – duh – head to Vegas, the land of carousing, drinking, and gambling, where […]

Dude, this has been a weird day. Here in San Francisco it’s been raining and I don’t know if that’s making everyone crazy-pants or what, but two things occur to me: 1. If you want to watch porn on your phone, maybe invest in some headphones? 2. Screaming matches with the barista and involving the […]

Lately, I am obsessed with gold accessories and clothing. Obsessed. Like I may have worn a gold lamé jacket for a shopping trip to Old Navy (did I mention this happened in the daytime and there wasn’t any Donna Summers playing except for the endless (summer) loop in my head? Mmm-hmm. I went there.). And, […]

A couple of days ago I posted to Instagram a photo of these rockin’ new shoes that just came in the mail. (Wait. You’re not following me on Instagram?

I’m headed home to Colorado today for a sister getaway that is bound to include lots of loud talking, a few heated arguments over whether action movies or foreign films are lamer (is it really even a debate?), and, hopefully, lots of catching up and laying around. Alice will be staying with my parents so […]

You know how sometimes when you make a recommendation you hear a little voice in the back of your head wondering if it is actually cool?
