September is always so good. It's perfect jean weather and you can still get away with wearing shorts with a long sleeve blouse. Not too hot...not too cold. Just right.

It was such an amazing weekend; I didn't want it to end. A huge slice of Americana with a side of sweet treats and QT with my little family. We also got a heavy dose of Vitamin C which was awesome. It finally feels like summer.Read More
About this. Truth...these photos were taken about four weeks ago. Second truth...I saw flurries again yesterday. So...waste not, want not. The colors are Spring-y, no?
Third truth...I'm trying. (hence the lateness of today's post)Read More
This whole mercury in retrograde has posed for a very interesting February. I'm going to get really honest with you this week about some transitions going on in my life but that's for another day; another post.
So...another holiday in and out. Whenever Valentine's Day is over, I always kind of look at February as being done. It's such a short month. Truly, we are inches from March and that gives me tremendous hope for SPRING! We're almost there, people!Read More
The SKIRT WEEK trend continues but today is the quintessential "Johanna" outfit. If I could illustrate my personality by way of fashion - this is it. A sharp contrast in color and 100% girly to the core.
I used to try and tone down my girly side, however; the older I get, the more I embrace all the things that make me happy. Wearing pink. Eating chocolate daily. Working hard. Being a supportive friend. Cooking. Tickling my girls. Staying in on a Saturday night.
Just a small snapshot of the things we often overlook on the most stressful days.Read More
Officially...this will be my Valentine's outfit. Typically not a floral person of sorts; I simply adore the large scale flowers on this dress. And the voluminous skirt = major fun!
The only challenge I had was finding a topcoat that wouldn't complete with the structure of the dress. Leopard saves the day...again!Read More
Polar Vortex has reared her ugly head again this winter and I'm layering up in preparation. You see, it's all about dressing smarter, not harder. ...errr something like that.
Truth is, I go through spurts. I just completed my denim spurt hence I'm craving skirts and dresses. Natch, in -11 temps.Read More
This year we hosted Christmas. Our house was filled with homemade smells that I just adore. It's my favorite part of hosting a dinner party.
One thing I've learned over the years is the importance of being comfortable when you are whipping up appetizers, shuttling dishes and pouring wine for your guests. I always opt for a dress in these situations. Movement is key as well as having room to grow.
I'm still in a fog from all the calories I consumed!Read More
