{Dudes} Let me dress you...

As I mentioned in my last post, life has been in a bit of transition over the past few weeks... but for exciting {work-related} reasons. A little over a week ago I started working for Trunk Club, a men's clothing service headquartered in Chicago. If you're not familiar with the company, check out the video below. Trunk Club is literally changing the way guys shop, and I'm thrilled to be a part of such an exciting start-up. You can learn more about Trunk Club {here}... and, Dudes, let me dress you!! You can sign-up with me at trunkclub.com/mobrien

{Five} of Our Favorite Things

I've been a little quiet here on the blog over the past week. Life has been in a bit of transition for exciting {work-related} reasons, keeping us rather busy lately. We're looking forward to settling back into a routine over this next week. In the meantime, I had to share {five} exciting and sweet {personal} things making us smile these days...

{ Kent State University is pulling together an all-century baseball team in celebration of their 100-year anniversary. My Eric, also known as the {His} over here, was honored to be nominated for the creation of this "dream team." Voting ends Monday at 5pm. You can vote for him {Eric O'Brien} under the "Outfield" section { HERE }  }

{ so proud of my Dad {a bagpiper with The Shamrock Club of Columbus} 
who piped all over Columbus, including the St. Patty's Day parade, on St. Patrick's Day }

{ my Mom created the sweetest set of albums commemorating my years of figure skating ~ I love you, Mom!! }


{ we were happy to have the chance to get back to Ohio for a short visit to see family, including my precious baby nephew... }

{ ...and while babysitting that precious little guy, we created this little movie }

His & Hers Inspiration - LOB 24hrs of Spring

I'm loving LOB's latest lookbook, titled '24 Hours of Spring'. I think that's partly because I'm pretty sure the first full day of warm weather will look a little something like it for a lot of us... a day spent lazing outdoors, soaking in the sun, and celebrating the night away. Yes, the arrival of warm weather will certainly be something to celebrate this year.

{Five} + {Five} Captures from SoBe

We've been quiet over here on the blog recently, but for good reason. We snuck out of chilly Chicago in search of some sun in South Beach. It was a lovely and much needed break from the long, long winter we've been having. We didn't want to leave the warmth, but we arrived back in Chicago yesterday afternoon on the first full day of spring. It's only a matter of time before the city's summer-like again. In the meantime, we brought back some sun to share... in the form of photos, of course. Here's just {ten} fun captures from our time in SoBe...

Hers - Semi Spring

We had our first nice weather day in months earlier this week... a semi-spring day that instantly sent us outside seeking a bit of fresh, mild air. It was wonderful. Although it certainly made us more anxious for spring to officially arrive. Soon enough, I know... In the meantime, I'm starting to slowly transition my wardrobe. Working in some pops of summery prints here and brighter colors there. My beacon of hope that warmer days are on the {near} horizon.
