Little Edge Threads | For Your Fashionable Kid

As you know my kiddos take to their stylish ways naturally. I'm constantly getting compliments on their latest fashion and I always respond that I'm sure my kids are way more stylish than I am. In fact, I usually run my looks by Sienna just to make sure I'm still in the cool zone (which I'm prob not since I…

The Sweetest Little Eyelet Dress

As long as I could remember I've always been a girl who loves dresses. Put me in the sunshine with an airy little dress and I'm a happy camper.

How to Wear Gingham

Spring is in the air and so are pretty pastel prints. Chief amongst these is gingham. That iconic, checkerboard print most commonly seen in blue and red. Personally, I love gingham.

The Best Salads in Jacksonville

The humble Salad. Perhaps one of the most underestimated menu items. So often considered an afterthought, an appetizer, or at best an add on. For me and many others though, salads are so much more. Whether you are a craving your veggies, hitting the gym a little harder, or just interested in testing out the creativity of your favorite dining…


Statement Jeans and Bell Sleeves

Jeans can be tricky. I told my husband this week that when investing in wardrobe pieces you can't go wrong spending a little extra money on swimsuits, jeans, and undergarments for that perfect fit. These pieces, if crafted with care, will be staples in your closet and keep you feeling as comfy as you are stylish. I'm not one to…

Best Family Friendly Restaurants in Jacksonville

If you know anything about me, you know I like good food. It's no surprise we have made it of chief importance to expose our kids to great eats from a young age. Kids are notoriously picky eaters, but in our house we have one rule: You have to at least taste the food. If you don't like it, you don't…
