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. […]

Holiday Pattern Mixing

It is such a festive time so you can try many different types of looks at different events. So get out there and take some style risks! Boots: Nordstrom | Skirt: Shabby Apple | Shirt: J.

Friday Fab Four

It’s Friday Fab Four! I haven’t done one of these in what feels like forever! Did you know fake freckles are a thing now? Usually, I keep an open mind with trends but these look so much like blackheads it’s hard for me to do anything but reject them outright. I am all about a hot cocktail in the winter. This one is fancy as hell and requires making your own ‘graham cracker liquor’ before serving. It takes for days to make the liquor, but this cocktail seems totally worth it to me. In case you didn’t know, I am […]

All Black Err’thang

Some people might tell you that you don’t need a lot of black dresses. Those people are wrong. I believe that you should have at least one black dress in the silhouettes you like to wear best. Just as long as you actually wear them. If your black dresses are collecting dust in your closet, donate them, consign them, whatever! But don’t hang on to unworn clothing.

Twinsies!

If there is any time of year to match with your little, the holidays is one of them. People are extra forgiving of cheesiness this time of year. Though I do wonder what Hannah will think of these photos when she is older. Will she love them or be like, ‘why, mom, whyyyyy????’. Only time will tell. Just a quick note about the dress I am wearing. It is very short. I am wearing leggings with mine. Honestly, I could have worn jeans and pulled it off as a tunic as well. Also, Hannah’s version is actually red and navy blue. It’s […]

The Tiniest Ruffle

I love this new shirt I got from J.Crew Factory. The little ruffle is so cute, and it can be styled in so many different ways for the holidays. This time I paired it with an oversized jacket and tattered boyfriend jeans for a more casual look, but you will see it more times all jazzed up for holiday parties. Word to the wise, if you order this shirt, size down. It runs quite big. Shoes: Amazon (LOVE these) | Shirt: J. Crew Factory | Jacket: StyleWe | Jeans: Make Me Chic

Holiday Feathers

Over the holidays a lot of us have many events to attend. Buying gifts, decorations, and fancy holiday clothes can really add up. That’s why I like shopping at sites like ThredUp around big party seasons. I was able to get this sweater and dress (worn as a skirt) for under $50. I like this look because it is the perfect blend of luxe and casual. Sometimes I don’t know whether a party is super dressy or more casual. I don’t want to be the dressiest lady at the party, but I don’t want to be underdressed either. Finding some middle ground is […]

Friday Fab Four

A few weeks ago, my husband, Hannah, and I went to the apple orchard to get pumpkins and do other fall activities. They had apple cider slushies at this orchard. I was hesitant to get one because I was worried they would be weird and syrupy-sweet. My husband ended up getting one and it was the most delicious drink I had all year. I immediately began daydreaming of how much more delicious an apple cider slushy would be with bourbon. Of course, the internet immediately answered my prayers with this recipe. Regardless of your views on the election, we can […]

Put A Bow On It

This style is traditionally called a pussybow. I thought about making a Trump joke, but I’m still not ready to joke about him. So I guess a Portlandia reference will just have to do. Shirt: StyleWe | Shoes: Go Jane (I love these so much) | Pants: Gap | Sweater: Banana Republic (similar)

Sorry I was gone for a few days. The election happened 🙁 then Hannah got sick 🙁 🙁 🙁 so I slacked off on posting for a bit. But I am back with a fancy new dress! And I must say, if there is beauty in the details then this dress wins all the beauty pageants. Shoes: Marc Fischer | Dress: Shein | Trench: J.Crew Factory | Necklace: H&M (Similar)
