Low And Messy

I love my long hair, but there are times when it doesn’t feel appropriate. I’m going to learn how to do this messy bun, one of the best I’ve seen.

All Together Now

For the first time in fifteen years, Fleetwood Mac will be touring with keyboardist Christine McVie. McVie joined the band in 1970 while married to Fleetwood Mac bassist John McVie. Since her departure from the band in 1990, Fleetwood Mac has toured mainly as a foursome. Even though we saw them just last summer, McVie’s return definitely warrants another go.

Here Comes The Sun

George Harrison’s lyrics were thrumming in my head yesterday, the first really nice spring day we’ve had. Like Kati Nescher from a story in the upcoming WSJ. magazine , I want to soak up some rays, even if I have to wear a sweater.

Easy Breezy

I’ve been following my friend, fellow blogger Heather Clawson, the author of Habitually Chic, as she gets ready for four months in Paris (jealous!!!).  My favorite recent HC post is on what she plans to pack.  Along with a trench, scarf , and clutch, she’s taking a pair of Emerson Fry loafers. This is a name Heather’s mentioned a number of times, but this time, I took notice.

Emerson and her husband Ryan are based in NH where they design the EF line which is ”focused on modern clean, versatile, long-wearing pieces”. Simple designs + high quality + a good price point = a great find. Easy and laid-back, these are the perfect run-around  staples.

Thanks for the tip Heather, and have a great trip!

On My Mind

My Uniform

When KiC first launched, I had written on my bio page “loves camel and grey”.  Along with “has horses, dogs, and lives on the water”, both still hold true (although the bio page is long gone).

Needless to say, when I saw this pic on Pinterest, it felt very “me”. The look is similar to what I wear today, and have worn forever–  it’s my uniform.

I keep thinking about the Saint Laurent Lulu in camel, but grey is super chic too…

Beverly Hills

Next month, I’m heading out to Los Angeles. My husband is from Bel Air, so I will be visiting his family, and I have some dear friends whom I hope to see as well. Last trip to L.A. my beloved Hotel Bel Air was closed for renovations so we stayed at the Beverly Hills Hotel.  Affectionately known as ‘The Pink Palace’, we especially loved the Fountain Coffee Room with it’s famed Don Loper designed banana leaf wallpaper.

Originally established as a private residential community in the early twentieth century, Beverly Hills celebrates its centennial in 2014. In it’s honor, Assouline rereleased In The Spirit of Beverly Hills: 100th Anniversary Edition.
