A Tale of Two Cities: Part 1.

baby it's cold outside.

Greetings all! I apologize for the lack of recent updates; however, in my defense I’ve been on a bit of a much-needed sabbatical. Case in point: a long overdue reunion with my college roommates. I’ve needed to check Denver off my trips-to-do list since 2006,  so it was time to pack a hefty suitcase and get on a Rocky Mountain High. First stop: pedi’s (I’m loving lavender), then a tour of Casa de Andi (no more “slumlords” in sight), followed by: a glass of wine, freezing my arse off, a sample life coaching session (a must!), a bottle of wine, a styling session (note: choose  long, bold statement sweaters over cropped, ruffled cardigans), yet another freezing of the arse but blue sky + sunshine all the while. I then switched ‘hoods and headed to a 90’s rock revival costume party with R-Dawg and Sklllz. Thankfully the coolest professional photog was on hand to capture all of our grunge glory. At 24 degrees, my leggings + shredded Levi’s shorts + plaid shirt ensemble left me cold as ice, but let’s be real: I’d show up for a party that fun in freakin’ Antarctica if it meant I’d get to relive some great college memories. I’m so glad that I over-packed (as usual) because I couldn’t stop piling on the layers to keep warm (did I mention it’s bitter cold there?!). As I said Adios to my collegiate crew (R-Dawg has actually put her Spanish degree to work!), it dawned on me that we’d accomplished nothing but fun times. Living the leisurely high life sounds like my entire Colorado collegiate experience… no wonder I had to transfer to graduate!

warm spring neutrals + skinny pants tucked into cute boots + sun protection + chic layers = one savvy traveler.

    I’m surprised you didn’t put an image of our state flag on here; you know, the one with the giant bear on it… I’m LOVING this Style Trial edition because 1. I got a shout out! and 2.
