Pretty, Pretty Peplum

There is just something so pretty and feminine about peplum. And that is exactly why it is one of my favorite silhouettes of the season. Well that, and because it is also extremely flattering on just about any figure. Nicely tailored with just enough flare to hide any imperfections…

Stormy Weather

While I spend a lot of time on the road for my job, one of the perks of all of the travel is that every couple of months, I get to take a trip back to my home state of Montana. And depending on the time of year and our schedules, sometimes it works out (like it did this past weekend) that J can come and join me and we can sneak in a long weekend in one of our favorite places-which also happens to be where we first met. And while the weather was cold and stormy (which required a little more layering than I’m used to this time of year), we still managed to have a great time with friends, visited all of our favorites places (and discovered some new), and were even able to sneak in a few miles on the bikes in between showers…
