Dreaming of Silk
Ever since I wore those billowy silk Elizabeth and James trousers, jeans or really any type of pant feel like restrictive sausage casings. But that’s to be expected when you’re essentially wearing pajama pants outside, right?
This trend is nothing new, in fact it’s safe to say I’m late to the game, but breezy trousers are all I want to wear these days as the temps start rising. I mean who wouldn’t want to to feel a breeze up their legs without having the fear of pulling a Marilyn Monroe?
I haven’t pulled the trigger on buying another pair – who knows how long this trend will last – but I have a feeling one or two more silky trousers will find their way into my wardrobe before the summer’s out.
Thoughts on this trend? Yay? Nay? Hey? Ok!

Holiday Gift Guide – Part One
My Mom has always said that nothing gives her greater joy than to shower the people she loves in gifts, and as a result, my brothers and I are the same way. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting gifts (who doesn’t?) but I also have so much fun shopping for other people. Would Gillian wear that blouse? Would Sevan like that bracelet? Does Erin have this cookbook? These are the things that run through my mind every time I go shopping.
For the first installment of my holiday gift guides I’ve pulled together a number of gifts that I wouldn’t mind giving or receiving this Christmas. After all, the best gifts are one’s you wouldn’t mind keeping for yourself.
