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!)

Friday Fab Four

You guys — this has been one of the busiest weeks ever. I haven’t gone to bed before 2am once this week (or last week now that I think about it). This freelance/work-from-home-mom life is kicking my whole entire butt. I need to hire an intern or something because I am dying from exhaustion. Anyway, all that complaining is to say, I don’t have very many fab things to say this Friday. Womp, Womp. So I will just talk about a few random things below. I love bacon. It is probably my favorite food ever. The BLT is one of […]

Pearly Prep

I tend to prep out a bit in the fall. It is easier (and warmer) to stack blazers and cable-knit sweaters over button downs. I like to think of my fall style as ‘edgy-weather-woman-with-an-attitude’, and I fully embrace this self-given title. I am especially excited about this super cute KJP pearl bracelet. If you are looking for a cute holiday gift for any lady in your life get her this. It is fancy, and sweet, and has really nice details. Also, all KJP products are made right here in the USA. Kiel, the owner of his namesake company, Kiel James Patrick, […]

Everyone is my house is sick. Hannah has her first cold ever and she is being such a good sport about it. I think she doesn’t mind because I let her have a lot of vanilla wafers. Shoes: Old from Nordstrom | Shorts: Banana Republic (old, but these are cute) | Shirt: Zara (old, but love this)

Friday Fab Four

After the endless rain this week, I decided that Hannah needs her first raincoat. I really love this one, but the idea of spending so much on a child’s clothing gives me pause. Before I had a kid, I used to fantasize about my child wearing the most fashionable clothes. Then I witnessed the horrors my child manages to inflict on her clothing before I can even get her downstairs for breakfast. After witnessing her blatant lack of sartorial respect, Hannah wears basic Gap and Target tshirts and leggings on the regular. This week I was randomly perusing Halloween treat recipes […]

Fall Into Plaid

I am not as obsessed with Fall as most people. It is a fine season, and it’s a helluva lot better than winter. But summer will always have my heart. However, I do love plaid shirts. So I am excited to dust off my plaid collection as the weather gets cooler. Shoes: New Balance | Jeans: Gap | Shirt: Humble Chic c/o | Earrings: Humble Chic c/o
