Its mid-week and I literally think I am running on coffee at this point. 
Something has me feeling like it’s traveling at a snail like pace. These are the days that comfort usually trumps anything and everything, and getting away with being as minimally ready as possible. Secretly I call this trend 'boho'.
Maybe I am just jealous of the effortless style these California girls possess, but it doesn't mean I can't channel it every so often. Less is more, unless it's jewelry, then the more the merrier. And if I can wear a hat, that’s always a plus.


Let's just hope the ladies at the shoot that I’m styling today think camo pants and Air Jordan's are just as chic too.


Cheers to Hump Day!

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Easter Sunday! 

I spent my day grilling, relaxing, and soaking in the beautiful weather in the valley, with close family and friends. The older I get, the more I realize that the simple moments spent relaxing and enjoying each other’s company are the times I appreciate most.
It’s a pretty surreal moment looking back at the past year and everything I’ve accomplished and am thankful for.  I’m so happy I have the most amazing support system to share my triumphs with. Easter clearly brings out the inner sap in me.

Lent finally ended as well! Giving up sugar and white flour didn't only make my body feel better, but it made me feel like an educated consumer. With resisting sugar, came knowledge about the harmful effects it had on my body. With my regular workout routine, just cutting those two items out alone, helped me to lose around 6 pounds in 40-ish days. (Slightly mind blowing). 

I’m also really excited to share some exciting things with all of you later this week, especially with Mother’s Day coming up!

Stay tuned!

Music festival season is in full swing and I won't lie, it’s rubbed off on me quite a bit. Free spirit dress and comfortable shoes are seriously something to get excited about. (And who can say no to maxi dresses and fringe bags?)
There is just something so stylish about dressing comfortable and not really caring. And in some strange way, it actually works. Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of disasters along the way, but comfortable, cool wear can be just as chic.

What are your favorite festival trends?

In other news… Eleventh & Sixteenth got a face lift!
I hope you love the new blog layout. There are still a few tweaks here and there but overall, it’s a winner!
Sometimes even our blogs need a little T.L.C from time to time, and this layout design has been in the works for weeks! So excuse me for being excited, but I AM ECSTATIC!

Happy Friday Dolls!

Borrowed

Cape: Friend of Mine, Tank: H&M [Similar], Jeans: Asos [Love], Scarf: Alexander McQueen, Clutch: Alexander Wang [Similar], Heels: Dolce Vita [Similar], Watch: Michele, Bracelets: Lagos and John Hardy, Sunglasses: Ray-Ban.

Why is it that as women we are so envious of menswear?
Is it because everything they wear is ultra-comfortable, or the fact that putting together a man’s outfit can be completed in about 3 steps?
Regardless, we're jealous of the boys. We’re remixing their classics and calling them our own. Boyfriend jeans, the tuxedo jacket, aviators, and a statement watch are a few of my favorites that I will never give up (I won't give up stolen sweat pants either).
It might be a man’s world, but it’s a women's world according to dress.
Sorry boys, you're just living in it.

With the sun finally shining, (almost consistently) channeling my inner pre-teen never felt so good. 
From the end of last week, through the weekend, I ended up wearing these retro short overalls, twice. I see them being used a lot more frequently throughout my summer rotation.
Do you dare try the overall trend?
