not giving up

When you put yourself out there you can get knocked around a little, whatever, we’re not giving up.

A couple of style notes:

  • bought this lace top with oldest daughter early December while in NYC. Never even looked at the label, simply liked the piece. Young, chic client came in last week and was showing me pictures of a few things she recently picked up, all by London label self-portrait. At home, checked my blouse, self-portrait. Wore it for the first time last night, felt fun and stylish, even with the ubiquitous denim. Kind of really loving their fresh, feminine vibe. Young daughters were like, ‘mom, yeah, self-portrait, they’re on SHOPBOP‘. Thinking I need to leave campus more often. 🙂
  • about that denim, can’t shake it off. While driving kids around all day thought why change what works? For now, it’s denim.
  • still love and wear all suede Aquazzura shoes we bought seasons ago, they look and feel good on the foot, and heel height at 3.5″ isn’t killer. You can find similar style here: net-a-porter, and there’s now a boutique at 939 Madison Ave, New York, NY.
  • thinking we might need a little cut and color, yet might put that off for four weeks or so. Some of the family is giving up things like wine, and chips, and we have absolutely no discipline in that area. We’re also super-inspired by one of our favorite bloggers Alyson Walsh of THAT’S NOT MY AGE. She talks about growing out her blonde on her Instagram feed, and check out her take on grey hair by clicking on This week’s style inspiration: grey hair on the cat-walk, Oxfam at fashion week and Kristin Scott Thomas. 

Every day dress, here’s to all women everywhere, not giving up. xoxo
