May Mashup


This month has been really busy for me with clients. Some old and some new. We have been busy styling, cleaning, sorting, and packing!  I am looking forward to sharing some of these projects with all of you soon. May  always feels crazy.   I am trying to get everything I can done at home and work,  before I turn into a full-time concierge to my children and their summer plans.  In the meantime here are a few of my favorite things for May…

This Shoe.

This shoe is business up front and party at the back, a mullet shoe.  If I could marry a shoe then we’d be on our honeymoon right now. I splurged on these from Ashley Austin. They go with everything. Seriously, everything. Did I mention there is glitter?

This Book.

Last year I had the amazing opportunity to attend a presentation by Bobbie Thomas, a fashion and style expert. Even better I got to meet her afterwards and she is a total girls’ girl.  Super nice, funny, and willing to share all her tips and tricks. She has put all her know-how into a guide aimed at helping you find and express the best version of you. I ordered the book last week and absolutely love it. You can read more about Bobbie on her website,, and on my post from last year, A Happy Closet.

This Bathing Suit.

I know, I hate swim suit shopping too. But I stumbled upon this amazing bikini top at the H&M store. It is fabulous for mulitiple reasons. The tops can be purchased separately from the bottoms, just in case you weren’t created from a perfectly symmetrical mold.  The top uses bra sizing, from 32A from 36D, much more accurate that the xs – xl system. There is underwire support and padding, for those of us who may or may not resemble a tribal woman in a National Geographic photo shoot. The very best part? The top is $14.95. Hallelujah.

This Ice Cream.

Ben and Jerry’s blueberry yogurt graham cracker ice cream.  I’m totally addicted. I keep eating this at an alarming rate. I will have to post the above pic of the bikini on my freezer to keep my cravings at bay. But you have to try it!

*Insider Tip – 

If your May is feeling crazy too, make sure to take some time for yourself. Treat yourself to something that makes you feel better about how you look. Maybe a new nail polish color? A new white pair of jeans? Maybe a fabulous summer sandal! It’s a great way to get in the mood for summer. It sounds indulgent but when you feel good about how you look it transforms your whole mood.
