This week was filled with lots of love. Last Friday, Allen and I took an impromptu trip to ski at Breckenridge and spent the whole evening walking the streets and eating at our favorite spots. And while I had to work until after 9pm on Valentine’s Day, Allen surprised me with the most beautiful flowers and dark chocolate truffles when I got home. We decided to postpone our Valentine’s Day celebrations this year for a special trip we have planned…

Casual Friday: Ruffle Blouse and A Pink Bow

Casual Friday: Ruffle Blouse with a Pink Bow | www.cupcakesandthecosmos.com

TGIF friends, am I right?! This week I’m taking full advantage of “jeans day” at work, which has become more of the norm as of late.Β So today I thought I’d share what I like to wear on a casual Friday at the office. Casual Fridays call for tried and true classics in my opinion. You just can’t beat ’em! Their simplicity and comfortability means you can mix-and-match them with pieces you already own in a variety of ways without needing…

Berry Sorbet Inspired for Spring

Bright Colorful Pink and Purple Look | www.cupcakesandthecosmos.com

I find that as we get increasingly closer and closer to spring, my wardrobe makes a considerable shift towards lighter pastels and more feminine color palettes. I guess it’s just my wishful thinking of warmer temps and the blossoming of flowers that creeps into my subconscious choice of clothing. And today’s berry sorbet-inspired look is no exception to this. You all know by now that I have a serious love of bright bold colors together (here and here, for example).…

Rainbow skies in Boulder Colorado at sunrise | www.cupcakesandthecosmos.com

This week was business as usual, with the exception that one of my morning classes didn’t meet. So I spent almost every morning working somewhere other than the office for a nice change of scenery. With this semester’s schedule seeming to be more and more packed with work, I’m making an added effort to really soak in as many of these sweeter, slower moments that I can. We even got outside for a quick hike in the Flatirons this past…

Family Ski Vacation in Beaver Creek

Family Ski Vacation in Beaver Creek - Day 2 | www.cupcakesandthecosmos.com

Hi, friends! Today I’m so excited to finally share pictures from our family ski vacation in Beaver Creek. Our family ski trip has become somewhat of an annual event that we all look forward to all year long. When I was younger, our destination was mostly Steamboat Springs, but the past couple years we have ventured to Breckenridge instead with a day or two at Beaver Creek. This year for something a little different, we decided to stay in Beaver…
