Sleek and Chic

There is something very chic (and classic in my opinion) about silk and leather!  I also love something that is soft and dainty paired with something bold and edgy.  While the weather where I’m at is almost too cold on the bare legs, this style is very easy to do. (Side note- I took this pic awhile ago…when it was warmer- oops!)  I wear my dresses year round, especially for work. (shocker) [Read more…]

imageI am very careful to keep opinions to myself on social media. There is nothing worse than scrolling through drama.  However, this is something I have a real issue with….posting inappropriate photos of our children to social media. [Read more…]

TOT: (Two on Tuesday) Healthy Hair!

Please follow and like us:

I didn’t post a TOT last week, yikes!  My first week back to work was a little busy and exhausting- go figure.  I want to talk hair.  My hair.  It’s seriously, seriously, ew, ew (Thank you Sara with no H)!

My hair has come a long way. It’s naturally curly but I straighten it.  It’s naturally blonde, but dirty blonde these days, so I lighten it.  In other words, it’s damaged regularly.  It doesn’t grow at the normal rate either.  I chopped it off a year and a half ago because there was so much breakage and just looked awful.  It’s taken some time (and a pregnancy to help) but it’s getting there.

Falling for Plaid

Please follow and like us:

By now you’ve seen plaid, plaid, everywhere!  I picked this little vest up last year from Target and it’s oh so cute and very fun!  It’s very versatile from casual to dressy.  For this outfit I styled it with a navy button front dress from Old Navy.

I’ve worn this dress several times now for work and play.  As you  may have noticed already, I’m all about work to play items.  When I make purchases these days, I always think of two ways to style the item.  How can I wear this to work and how would I wear this out and about.  Not everything I buy fits both categories but I always make a conscious effort to support both whenever I can.

Dressed Up Flannel- Part 2

I wanted to feature one more look for this awesome, super cute flannel from Old Navy.  Last week I paired the top with a long black maxi (also from Old Navy) so check it out if you missed it!  Keeping with the “unexpected” looks I’ve been encouraging you all to try at home, here I went with a faux leather pencil skirt.  I’m certain every girl needs a faux leather skirt in her closet. You can find these at all different price points and styles for your own personal need. The one above is from Old Navy (go figure). [Read more…]

Do I really need to say anything? The name says it all!  Alright, real quick…I found an actual recipe for this but I could not find the main ingredient.  So, I improvised and came up with my own concoction making some changes and additions.  Let me tell you, these were a hit with the group I sampled them on. Seriously- YUM!  Forget the pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving…these fancy (adult) shooters, are sure to be a hit!  Enjoy…and please, drink responsibly!

I have been dying to share this outfit and photos with you all for weeks!  (Trying to spread out my recent batch of photo shoot pics because they are much fancier than my selfies!) I love how this outfit came together! I grabbed the pieces separately at the store last month with no intentions of pairing them together.  Once I got into the dressing room, I thought, hmmm, what if…  Always try something unexpected!  I cannot stress this enough and encourage you to think outside the box!  You will be amazed at the endless possibilities and I guarantee this will change the way you shop and become more conscious of your purchases.

Lately I’ve been getting compliments on my hair- which I never get!  Maybe it’s because I’ve been home on maternity leave not washing it much???  Actually that’s probably true and I’ve had some extra time for conditioning treatments and unexpected “air drying” with my new little one at my side:)  Honestly, I have crappy hair (we’ll discuss that another time when I talk to you about how I finally got it healthy again, ok, somewhat healthy again) but I work with what I have and found some great products to help me along the way!

I love dressy shorts!!! I’m a shorts (short shorts) kinda gal! I didn’t get to wear any of my fun shorts this past summer since I was prego so I had to throw on a pair for this shoot a few weeks ago. These black ones featured here are a couple years old but you can always find a great pair out there. It seems that most of the ones I own are from Express because I like the style and fit for me personally. I have several color options and styles from the silky ones shown here, to a cream crochet style, and a black/gold sequin pair.  You can find a great pair for yourself at The Limited, The Loft, ASOS, Forever 21, and H&M to name a few.
