I will be taking a little blog break the rest of this week to visit some of our dear friends and have some family time…

I love when I meet someone who is so passionate about what they do; and Mike from Burgundy Circus Hardgoods is one of those guys. Mike set out to create high quality and durable hand-made goods. His specialty being everyday carry goods from tote bags to wallets and key fobs. His bags are unisex; which makes them cool enough for a girl to carry yet masculine enough for a guy to use as well.
I am a “handbag” girl, and I have invested in quite a few over the years. When I am running around during the week going from the gym, to volunteer at school, or the grocery store, I don’t necessarily want to carry my heavy designer bag. This is the perfect alternative; it is functional, lightweight and minimalist chic .
The canvas is high quality, the leather starts out crisp and clean, but will patina beautifully over time (like the leather on a Louis Vuitton bag), the inside has a key ring and probably my favorite detail is the front pocket.… Continue Reading
Sorry for my absence this week! It’s been a busy one…We have been cheering on our Royals in the World Series, I have been nursing our household back to health and I had our monthly photo shoot for Park Place and a news segment on Fox! I am glad I survived the week and looking forward to going on vacation with my family next week. I think we all need a getaway!

Since fitness is our family business, we are constantly looking for new lines of fitness apparel. I randomly discovered Brasil Sul via Instagram. They are a Brazilian based company making bright and colorful fitness apparel.
You won’t believe this, but Brasil Sul pants are one size fits (most) 0-12! The supplex material stretches up to 500% of its original size without stretching out and losing its shape. I love the wide waistband, and the length which hit me right above the ankle. They have solids and prints; I went for the Leopard!
They are cute enough to wear from the gym to running errands! I paired them with the Lululemon Vinyasa Scarf which can be worn many different ways; I am kind of obsessed with this piece (and it’s only $48!)
One lucky winner will take home a pair of Brasil Sul pants of their choice! Enter the giveaway here!… Continue Reading
How I dressed for date night in my 20’s is much different than I do now! I definitely feel like there is a lot of “too young” out there and not enough sophisticated styles to choose from. So, when I spotted this blouse at Alysa Rene Boutique in Park Place this week, I had to snag it right up! AND, it was not expensive; which I always appreciate! I know that I will wear this a couple of seasons and then I will be ready to move on to the next thing. That is why I always say, don’t spend too much on novelty tops. Most of the time you want to replace them after a year or two.

I am really loving rings right now. While I do like the super dainty little gold pieces, something about a big statement piece is calling to me.
I came across this amazing vendor on Etsy. Inbal Mishan is making incredible rings with 24K gold plating and semi-precious stones. The Turquoise and Druzy are incredible! And you won’t believe her prices, most of these rings are $60-$65

You gotta love a Shopbop sale! Time to stock up on good (investment) basics; or snag up that handbag you have had your eye one! I have a lot of favorites for fall from a classic black Mackage coat to a beautiful Black dress from Saylor; just in time for holiday parties.
You have 3 days to save 25% off! Happy Shopping!
It seems as though Kansas City is a sea of Blue; as our Royals are having such an amazing season! I guess I picked a great time to invest in a cobalt blue bag. With all the black, white and grey this season; this is just the perfect way to add color to my wardrobe.
I have been obsessed with the Alexander Wang Rocco for quite a long time, and after saving up I finally was able to make it my own. For those who have wondered, it is not as heavy as it looks. I have found it to be a great everyday bag from the gym to work or running around with my kids. I especially love that it has both short handles and a long strap.
And, the leather shorts continue to be a great staple in my wardrobe. For Fall I am layering them with printed tights.
