Question for other bloggers: How much time do you spend on an average blog post? For me, I spend anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour on a post (this doesn’t include planning or shooting content). I have been doing this for a really long time, so I have my posting regimen down to a science. However, as the holidays come up, I spend a bit more time making my posts feel as magical as the season (or at least I try to). Anyway, I was wondering how long other bloggers spend on their posts. I’ve never asked, and it would be […]
First and foremost, Pretty in Pink is probably my least favorite Molly Ringwald movie. I prefer Sixteen Candles or The Breakfast Club. But the reference was too good to pass up. Anyway, I really enjoy this dress. The hemline is a little longer than what I usually wear with dresses so heels are essential. But it’s still so pretty. I love the lace details, and the sleeves make it versatile enough to wear through Fall. Dress: Asos | Shoes: Go Jane (similar) p.s Check out my latest MODE story here!
Summer is my favorite season, but I absolutely LOVE boots. Marc Fisher LTD‘s newest line of Fall footwear does not disappoint. Prepare to see these ‘Harley’ boots in heavy rotation when the weather cools down.

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
I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner. It was my first (and ended up being my last) exploration into buying vintage. I love this dress, but vintage clothes are kind of difficult. First, they are expensive. Then you have to take them to a tailor and get the hemlines taken up, the bust taken in, the straps reworked, and you always have to get them professionally cleaned. So you end up spending another $100 or so on the piece depending on how much ‘work’ needs to be done. Also, you never really get that musty smell out of vintage clothes. Anyway, this dress had been […]
I’ve worn this dress before on the blog, but I never liked the way the light looked. It seemed like anytime I wore this dress it was either dark out (because, I mean, it IS more of an evening dress). Or it started to rain so we had to shoot inside. But I finally got the chance to shoot it properly! This is one of my favorite fancy dresses. This dress is also pretty easy to wear as a top if you pair it with a midi skirt. Shoes: Kate Spade (love these)| Dress: Asos (I am obsessed with this)
I am not sure about you guys, but I have been getting eaten alive by mosquitos and spiders and other awful creepy crawlies that live outside. So I have been wearing pants (despite the humidity) to keep the critters away. I definitely need a good bug spray, stat! Also, prepare yourself to see more of this hairstyle. It is so easy and humidity-proof! Score! Shirt: C. Wonder (old, but love this) | Shoes: J.Crew Factory (similar) | Jeans: J. Crew Factory | Bag: Clare V p.s. Another piece I wrote for Mode is live! It is all about the insane […]
I am loving this floral two piece from Trunk Up Boutique. The particular look isn’t even officially on the site yet, but it will be later this week. I definitely recommend picking it up. I always like when you can buy a set like this because it ends up being so versatile since you can break up the two pieces and wear them with different items. Shoes: Nine West (similar) | Two Piece: Truck Up | Clutch: Nordstrom (love this) | Jacket: J. Crew
