A few important things to take note of this fall

A tall Pumpkin Spice Latte has 11 grams of fat and 39 grams of sugar. It also has 11 grams of protein and 40% of your recommended daily calcium intake. So your basic-ness is sort of healthy if you look at it a certain way. As the weather gets cooler, it’s very important to dress appropriately for the weather. Layers are your friends. You know what isn’t cute? The flu. Here are twenty-five ways to tie a scarf. Leggings will never be pants — but leggings make create tights replacements. Especially the lovely, cheap leggings from Forever 21. They are so […]

Don’t just ‘Put A Blazer On It’

Dressing for a corporate setting can be incredibly difficult. Especially if your work is really conservative and you feel limited to suits *shudder*. I feel lucky because even when I worked in a corporate setting it was never so stuffy that I had to completely compromise my personal style. However, I did fall into fashion ruts a lot. My solution was to wear a black dress with a blazer and heels. That got boring and repetitive really quickly. It also felt like I wasn’t wearing a lot of my clothes — and I have a pretty strict policy about not letting […]

Fall Layers

I do this every year. I get really excited that it is ‘fall’ and I bust out all my fall clothes. Then I proceed to wear all of my fall clothes at once and complain because I am sweating profusely. The only problem is — despite what the calendar might say, it doesn’t really feel like fall at all. It feels like late-summer with cool winds. When the weather actually gets cold, I will be huddled in my house, standing by the nearest vent pumping out warm air, guzzling hot tea, and begging for summer to come back. But for […]

Friday Fab Four

I really wish peep-toe boots weren’t so impractical and slightly strange because I love everything about these. I mean they are only $30 so maybe it might be worth taking a chance on them. Hannah is entering the temper tantrum stage. I feel bad because I know she is only throwing them because she isn’t able to articulate what she wants. I would throw a tantrum too if I knew what I wanted to say, but I didn’t have the physical capacity to say it. It’s like those terrible nightmares where you are trying to speak or shout but no […]

Whoops!

Soooo I kind of slacked off this week. First, there was a hurricane. Which meant 24 hours straight of rain. Then the next day I wanted to take the little lady to the pumpkin patch, so I went on ahead and did that. All of these excuses are to say that I didn’t shoot anything new for the blog this week! But hey, sometimes a gal needs a break. I can’t say I’m sorry I gorged on cider doughnuts instead of blogging. 🙂 But I won’t slack off next week. I promise!

10 Fall Coats (Under $100)

Seemingly overnight summer went away and Fall is here in full force. If you’re in the market for a new Fall jacket, here are some options below! This faux leather bomber is beautiful, versatile and on sale for $99. I love this coat because it isn’t too heavy, and it has a hood! It is perfect for this transitional season. P.S. — it’s only $89. This beautiful pink duster is great for layering, and its girly pink color will keep the cold-weather blues away. ($73) I love these oversized coats. They remind me of Jackie-O. The grey color of this […]

Friday Fab Four

Can I open this post with a rant? Of course I can! It’s my blog, after all. Here it goes. This week I was added to two new LuLaRoe groups. To date, I have already been added to around twelve in total. Now listen, I am all about supporting women trying to live their best lives. I am especially supportive of mothers who are trying to make extra money. Being a mom is really hard. It also stinks when you have to work all day, and be a mom, and take care of the house, and cook, and basically be Wonderwoman. I get it. But I […]

The Books I Read In September

I read two books in September. Both were good. Once was really good, the other was just good-good. Here’s they are! Yellow Crocus: I had been avoiding this book for months. Usually, I don’t like to read slave books written by white authors because they always seem to dissolve into the Happy Slave Narrative: no matter how many atrocities a slave must endure they are secretly super happy to be serving their well-intentioned masters. I hate that. Thankfully, this book only did this a little bit, and overall it was quite good. I think this book faltered because it tried to do too much. It […]

Fall Vibes

We are getting to the point when the weather is cooler in the morning, but quickly skyrockets to the high 70’s by noon. This weather reminds me of when I was a kid. I would be so excited to wear my new back-to-school clothes that as soon as I felt a chill in the air, I would run upstairs and put on my new sweater, and my new turtleneck, my new wool skirt, my new coat, and my new stockings, too. I would manage this completely non-weather-appropriate outfit on the way to school, but by recess I would be dying. I still looked cute, though. pants: Very […]

On October Third, He Asked Me What Day It Was.

It’s October Third! You know what that means. It’s officially Mean Girls Day! What is your favorite Mean Girls quote? I think, right now, my favorite is, ‘I’m not like a regular mom. I’m a cool mom!” Because, other than Leslie Knope, I think this may have been Amy Poehler’s finest role.   Shoes: Go Jane (these are similar) | Skirt: Chic Wish | Dress: Asos (on sale!)
