Tweed Three Ways

So this is my first sponsored post of the year. Since I am not shopping for the entire year I have to be very picky about the types of sponsored posts I do. Basically, the clothes have to be good quality, wearable, and versatile. So I was excited to partner with Haute Shop for this post. I got this amazing tweed suit that I have styled three ways for this post. This is the ‘traditional’ way to wear this suit — jacket and skirt together. This is a perfect look for work, church, or any other event where you need to look polished. […]

Friday Fab Four

I haven’t done one of these since before Christmas. Okay first and foremost, I have to share this article I found about the best cookies by state. I want to make them all this year! Hmmm, maybe that can be a new blog challenge?? As you know I can’t shop for myself this year. However, I can shop for Hannah. Though I am trying to cut back on that, too. I only want to shop for her when she jumps to the next size. Also, we have some epic hand-me-downs from friends so I will only buy her stuff when I really […]

Snowy Denim

I snapped these photos right after going grocery shopping so I am little wilted. I do want to prepare you, though. My year of no clothes shopping means you will see my chambray tops a lot because I am deeply obsessed with them. Deeply. Hi Matt! Shoes: LL Bean | Jeans: H&M | Shirt: J.

Snow Day!

This weekend we had our first big snowfall. I get annoyed by weekend snowstorms because they inhibit the number of snow days a person can take. I mean, I work from home so I never get a snow day. But if my husband gets a snow day that means I don’t have to pay the nanny to watch Hannah because he can! So snow days are a good thing. Anyway, the snow fell and Hannah only sort of liked the snow better this year than she did last year. Also, I am wearing the exact same thing in these photos as I […]

I’m Doing Something Pretty Crazy

So you know how I was complaining that I was bored with my blog earlier this week? I think I found a solution. And it’s completely insane. So I am constantly saying that I have too much stuff. I could open up a boutique with my clothes and lots of the clothes I have go unworn because I am constantly buying new stuff. A lot of this buying cycle I am going to blame on this blog. I always feel like I need something new and exciting for my blog. But in reality, I don’t. So I have decided I am […]

I’m Baaaacccckkkkkk!

I always take a pretty giant blogging break each year around the holidays. Actually, this choice is a terrible business decision as people buy a ton of clothes during the holidays and the last thing I should be doing is taking a break when I could be making those dolla bills, y’all. But whatever. Every year for the past five years I have the same internal dilemma around the holidays. I have been blogging for eight years now, and I always wonder if maybe I should stop. I used to love my blog and get so excited to create content for it, post, and […]

Friday Fab Four

I discovered this week that I do not like almonds. For years I have tried to love almonds like everyone else but they are hard and dry and awful. They literally suck the joy out of my mouth. So I do not like them. Ah, I feel so much better now that that’s out in the open. You guys, I can. not. stop laughing at this video. It might be in my top five viral videos now. On a serious and very important note, here is how you can donate to help Syria‘s most vulnerable victims. It’s tax deductible, people, […]

I went to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra and it was not that great

This post has nothing to do with fashion, but it does have to do with Christmas and general merriment. For that reason, I am abandoning my niche to warn you…. Do not attend a Trans Siberian Orchestra performance. But I am getting ahead of myself. Let’s start at the beginning… So back in August, I saw that the Trans-Siberian Orchestra was coming to my town to perform a Christmas spectacular of music and wonderment the likes of which the universe had never seen before. I was so excited. I had always wanted to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in real life. This song is one of […]

My New Skincare Regimen

It’s been a year and a half since my daughter was born. During that time I have really slacked on self-care. I am trying to get back in the game. Not just so I look better, but so that I feel better too! So instead of a monthly books post, this month I am going to be talking about my ‘new’ skincare regimen. I am saying it is new because it is new to me, but this skincare routine has actually been around for decades. It’s a 10-step Korean Skincare regimen. I discovered it reading my girl Chriselle Lim’s blog. […]
