Last year I discovered the brand Show Me Your Mumu on Planet Blue. Since then I have been totally obssesed with their laid back, lose fitting styles. Two best friends started the line, in their NYC apartment and are now headquartered in Vince Beach, CA. Inspiration struck when they couldn’t find anything to wear on a trip to Miami, so they decided to reinvent the mu’u mu’u, and call it a Mumu. The styles are so colorful, bright and easy, basically everything I look for in clothing. Shop Show Me Your Mumu in their online shop, Revolve or Planet Blue.
It’s a glorious day outside, Spring has sprung in Denver! Yes, it is supposed to snow Sunday, but who cares! Today is beautiful! This weekend is all about the music… my favorites, The Infamous Stringdusters, are headlining the Ogden tonight and Saturday night! If you have never seen them GO!! Seriously, their live performances continue to blow me away time and time again. I can’t wait for tonight! Saturday, I’m head up to Vail with friends to see STS9′s free show in Vail Village. This will be STS9 second show with their new bassist Alana Rocklin. You can stream their first show in Phoenix on soundcloud – really excited to hear their new tracks!
Read: This year Outkast announced their return with a 40+ festival tour. Unfortunately I am missing their denver show for a wedding. In just a few weeks Outkast will make their triumphant debut in Georgia for Counterpoint Music Festival in that honor Alt’s Creative Loafing put together a great piece on this history of Outkast and Atlanta or Stankonia.
Beauty: I have been a devoted fan of Sun Lab’s tanning lotion for a while now. Blogger Cara of MaskCara has also been a long time devote until recently – I can’t wait to test out her new favorite.
Shop: I have updated my shop with lots of new spring styles – check it out!
More Awesome Music: This week YouTube Channel Musicvault launched with an absurd amount of concert footage form the Allman Brothers to Zappa. They also have exclusive content of up and coming artist. Seriously amazing stuff.

Shorts & Pants
Hats & Sunglasses
Kimono’s & Jackets
I honesty never thought that Birkenstocks would be back… but they are! I spent legit most of my life in Birkenstocks, in particular a pair of brown leather Arizona’s. When I was a sophomore in high school, my mom took me and a friend (with good taste in shoes) to the Nordstrom’s at Perimeter Mall to help find me ANY other shoe to wear. That year I retired my beloved Arizona’s. But, in a matter of days I’ll have two brand spanking new pairs of Birkenstocks, Arizona’s and the new Yara. Don’t worry I promise not to wear them with socks.
Here is a mix of some of my favorite songs of 2014 thus far. This playlist will get any crowd dancing. Klingande – Jubel is by far my favorite track right now, it’s a fabulous dance song with a some ridiculous saxophone. You may recognize Jimkata, CHVRCHES and St. Lucia as they been previously featured on Jam of The Week. Another band to watch out for is Wildcat! Wildcat! they only have 3 tracks on Spotify but are touring this summer and will hopefully put out a full EP soon. Another one hit wonder on Spotify is Great Good Fine Ok – this band has been impossible to find information on till SWSW. Hopefully this duo starts touring soon! I was blown away when I saw the music video for Call Me by St. Paul and the Broken Bones, this guy can really sing. Hope you enjoy it!

A verse this week that really struck a cord with me… have a great weekend
Revelation 21:4 He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.
A group of us spent the weekend at a friends Ranch outside of Yampa. I have been there every season and and it is always beyond beautiful. That Saturday’s weather was dumping snow one minute and blue skies the next. Each moment had completely different lighting. We went from bundling up to stripping down every 20 minutes! The boys built a ramp and everyone tested out their skills. Jake attempted a back flip and by the 6th try nailed it. I did not attempt this jump, maybe next year…
