Mom's the Word Palo Alto

Whether you walked to, you popped in during a Stanford game or you drove from Carmel, Menlo Park, Mountain View, Burlingame or beyond, here's who will be here to greet you.

Being a new mom has it challenges, but I wouldn't change it for the world. Loss of sleep and sanity is a fair trade to spend as much time with my boy as possible.

I am a firm believer that there should never be a compromise between comfy and cute. Add a fun lip color and out the door.

Making people happy, makes me happy and I fully believe in retail therapy.



When asked “What do you do?”

I am a mom.

Like all other moms on earth, I do a few other things too. 

I love babies, I love toddlers, I love humans. I love getting dressed every morning, and have since I can remember.  

I  love contradictions in style. Plaid with plaid? Goodwill finds with designer pieces? Cowboy boots with everything? I've gotta mix my Iowa/Chicago/DC childhood with my NYC/LA/SF adult life, and how better to do that than mixing sh*t UP!

We all get to define what is classic. What they say is true, you never get a second chance to make an IRL first impression-and we are big believers in living IRL and  IRL interactions with you!

I love getting you dressed to feel success-however you define it!
