The Rambler: All Hail Jane Mayle

Aug 07 2016 Filed in: The Rambler

My love affair with Jane Mayle began almost as soon as she launched her line in 1999. At that point in my life, I was fresh out of business school and landed a pretty decent gig at a small management consulting firm. With my first taste of financial independence and modest disposable income, I was able to indulge my inner fashionista. My go-to...

The Rambler: Vintage Book Finds

Jul 24 2016 Filed in: The Rambler

For me, hunting for vintage is a constant endeavor. I never know what I may happen across when I pop into my tried and true haunts or scour garage sales and flea markets. My latest obsession is looking for vintage books. Art and photography, children’s stories, natural history – I find all of this wildly interesting. And whether used as perfect coffee table...

What summer would not be complete without a trip to the farmer’s market? Whether located in a church parking lot, or taking over an expansive public park these little bastions of food heaven provide the freshest produce, meats, and baked goods that you typically cannot get at any grocery store.

Ace & Jig Fall 2016...Launching July 1st

Jun 26 2016 Filed in: The Rambler

Even though most of the country is currently battling record high summer temps, I most definitely have autumn (undoubtedly my favorite season of the year) on my mind.  As we shift away from this past season's collections of muted palettes, tissue weight fabrics, and delicate textures I am looking forward to making the shift to rich colors, chunky knits, and...

Jun 19 2016 Filed in: The Rambler

Spontaneously, Dave, the girls and I decided to inaugurate summer with a quick trip to Burlington, Vermont.  It was the perfect New England jaunt to satisfy our wanderlust.  So on Memorial Day weekend, we threw ourselves and our carelessly packed bags into the car and took off.  We were fortunate to score one of the last remaining hotel rooms as...

The Rambler: Father's Day

What better way to celebrate Father’s Day than to profile John Petersen and his husband William Kinnane – dads to Riley Kinnane Petersen, Creative Director of the wildly successful Little Lux. John, who hails from Omaha, Nebraska, is the owner and founder of Gunner & Lux and LITTLE LUX. William, originally from the mid-coast of Maine, has been working in the banking industry for over...

Mother's Day

May 08 2016 Filed in: The Rambler

For this week’s Rambler, I want to celebrate all things Mom! And while my husband deems this a commercial phenomenon created by the marketing geniuses at Hallmark (I don’t entirely disagree), to me Mother’s Day is a holiday that reminds us of the importance of our loved ones, no matter how crazy, chaotic and dysfunctional that unit may be. This...

The Rambler: Spring Break Part II – Sanibel Island

Apr 24 2016 Filed in: The Rambler

Sanibel Island is located on the west coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. One of the biggest draws of this perpetual vacation haven is the charm it exudes as a throwback tropical island, untarnished by the chaos of the modern world. And I can assure you that very little has changed here since my first trip nearly 40 years ago. Aside...
