Pattern Play

Here’s a funny story about this look. I actually could not smile because of my sunglasses. I let Hannah ‘play’ with these sung’s and what she did instead was destroy them. They were so crooked and off balance. Whenever I tried to smile my cheeks pushed the glasses up so that they were completely lopsided. So I had to be really serious for these pictures — even though I love the playful print on this skirt! Shoes: Similar | Skirt: THML | Top: Sincerely Sweet Boutique

Friday Fab Four

If you’re looking for a good puffy vest for Fall, may I suggest one from J. Crew Factory? I have one in black and I quite like it. Plus, they are always on sale. Hannah has always been a mischievous lady. It’s part of her charm. But now that she is older, her mischief could a) get her seriously hurt or b) turn her into a little girl no one wants to be around. So now I have to take her discipline more seriously. I have been trying to not say ‘no’ to her all the time, which is hard […]

Everyday Style

I have often wondered when I would get sick of my chambray shirts. It’s been years and they are still my favorite things, so I see no end in sight. I see myself as a little old lady rocking my chambray and being the fanciest lady in the old folks home. Shoes: (old, but these are similar) | Skirt: Trunk Up | Chambray: J. Crew Factory

The Book I Read In July

But first here’s a picture of Hannah, her two teeth, and her sweet little neck rolls being delighted by sunflowers. I only read one book in July. That is because the one book I read, A Little Life, was 720 pages long. Let me tell you, 720 pages is too long — but I will get to that later. A Little Life was on basically every ‘must read’ list this year. I read Hanya Yanagihara’s other book, The People In The Trees, and I really liked it. So I was really, really excited to read this book because I had heard it was even better than The People In […]

Friday Fab Four

Hi freyunds! It’s FRIIIDAAYYYYYY! Here are four fab things. I got a hat like this  when Hannah was a newborn. Now I want to get one for her as a big girl. I am a sucker for baby hats with ears. I made this mac n cheese yesterday. I added broccoli and crispy bacon. I also did the baked option. It was delish. I definitely recommend making it. I am not a big yard sale shopper. I approach yard sales the same way I approach potluck dinners: with major apprehension. HOWEVER, here is a list of things to never buy […]

You guys, it is truly a miracle these photos turned out well. My legs are so covered in bruises and bug bites that I feel like I’m in the fifth grade. It’s not an ideal look, but I am owning it. That’s why I look so serious in these photos. I have to be serious to make up for the bug bites. Everything I am wearing is J.Crew Factory: Shorts | Shirt | Shoes (love these)
