Those of you who follow me may have noticed I was in Bora Bora last week with my husband and daughter. Those of you who know me know Bora Bora is a place I’ve been dying to go to! Those of you who know me quite well know that while I’ve been dying to go to Bora Bora, I really only wanted to go to The Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora!! So when our daughter, Jordan, who happens to be a blogger, hey there  @thebalancedblonde, presented us with the opportunity to go with her, of course I said “No”.  Haha…

Last week my husband and I went on a fabulous trip to Maui for our 32nd Anniversary. Crazy! I say crazy because how could 32 years have gone by already?? I’ve been with my husband longer than I have been without him! I look back over the years filled with happiness, grief, sorrow, excitement, and horror, and marvel at how far we’ve come. Children, step-children, grandchildren, parents, in-laws, exes, family and friends all thrown into the mix. Not to mention occasional psychologists, psychiatrists and counsellors! (Keeping it real.) All in all, it’s been quite a roller coaster, with all of the…

I get asked a lot if skinny jeans are still in style. ABSOLUTELY they are!! They may not be trending right now, but they certainly are still in style. I’d say they’ve turned into more of a classic. There’s a reason why so many fashion A-listers are still wearing skinnies. Hello Kendall Jenner! Hey Gigi Hadid! What up Chrissy Teigan?! There are so many ways to wear skinnies! They can be worn casually, ripped with tennies. They can be dressed up with stilettos and a blazer. They can be paired with thigh high boots and a bomber. They can be…

So recently I spent the afternoon helping a girlfriend, Lynelle, pack for a trip to London. She just needed a little bit of help putting a few outfits together without going out and spending a lot of money. Another girlfriend, Cheri, (as in San Francisco Shopping For Cheri) and I went over in hopes of getting her packed quickly and then going out for Martinis! Well its true what they say…One Mans Junk Is Another Mans Treasure. I think that”s what they say anyway. In this case, it was One Woman’s Old Dolce Jacket, Old Donna Karan Velvet Coat and…

So a couple of weekends ago my husband and I spent the weekend in San Francisco with our dear friends Cheri and Craig. It was Cheri’s birthday and what she wanted was a shopping spree in S.F.! She requested my help and I was oh so happy to oblige!! She hadn’t really bought very much in the last couple of years so her wardrobe needed a bit of a facelift (her wardrobe, DEFINITELY not her)! We started at the Vince store on Geary Street because Vince is a great line for women that are say…over a certain age but still…

They say the first step is admitting it.   Okay, here goes, “My name is Jane, and I have an addiction to boots.” I love them. I obsess about them. I even crave them. All different kinds of boots, from booties to thigh highs, flats to 5 inch heels, and chunky to sexy!    My go-to Alexander Wang military boot, to pair with anything from edgy dresses to skinny jeans. A few of my STAPLES are linked in this post, so you too can begin to form your obsession — or just a casual relationship with them. That works too. 🙂  …
