    March 2020 Favorites

    It’s weird to talk about what I loved this month when this month has been the absolute worst. It’s like every month of 2020 is competing to be the worst. I’m thankful that I’m still healthy as are my friends and family (knock on wood) but we can all agree it’s a very weird, isolating, scary time right now. We’re all stuck inside our homes and only going out for necessities. I spend my days working from home – teaching virtually through Zoom – and if it’s a nice day I’ll go for a walk to get some fresh air and exercise after my work day. Unsurprisingly I only have…

    Panther Faux Leather Bag

    I love a good statement bag, but they’re usually too loud or crazy for me to invest money in. How often would I really wear it out? I’ve written in the past about some of the Kate Spade statement bags which are always incredibly fun to look at, but not practical enough for me to buy. Would I love a Kate Spade bag that is shaped like a wicker elephant? Of course! But will I pay $400 for it? Sadly, no. So when I saw this faux leather bag from TopShop that has a enamel panther detail I had to have it! It’s subtle, but still so cool, fun, and…

    Tie Dye Hoodie

    Last spring, I shared a light colored cropped tie dye hoodie . I still have that one and love it, but this spring I bought a more brightly colored one. Honestly, it makes me think of Easter in the best possibly way. This one is also longer in length so it would work great with jeans like I wore here or with leggings. Front tucked in to denim shorts would be nice for summer too. Hoodie: Forever21 (here) | Jeans: Kohl’s (here) | Shoes: Keds via DSW The green and pinky purple color combo in this tie dye hoodie is so bright and happy. It’s a great combination and helps brighten…

    Green & Yellow Patterned Sweater

    The green and yellow pattern in this sweater just scream spring to me. Even though it’s a sweater, it still makes me think of spring despite the crazy weather. One day it’s sunny and 70 and the next it’s rainy and in the 40s. The sweater has such a pretty color pattern and the puckered shoulders and the wide sleeves are the perfect detail. Sweater: LC Lauren Conrad via Kohl’s (here) | Jeans: American Eagle | Shoes: Keds via DSW I wore this sweater earlier in the week with fray hemmed jeans and grey slip ons. My sweater currently on sale for under $24 with the code FAMILY (sale ends…

    Summer Events – Wow With A Hog Roast  We’re always looking for different ways to celebrate and when events like birthdays come once a year, every year, it can be hard to keep things fresh. If you’re looking for something different this year, how amazing do pig roasts sound? They make quite a spectacle. A hog roast can evoke a former time, when our ancestors had to hunt for their food. Think of the visual display and the tantalising aromas of freshly roasted meat and your mouth is guaranteed to start watering. A hog roast can be a time-consuming pursuit, but it can also be extremely rewarding – whether you hire someone or try to do it…

    Elephant Tee + Acid Wash Jeans

    If you follow my Instagram stories then you’ve seen me gush over these acid wash jeans for the past few weeks. They are so good – I’m not exaggerating! Let me tell you how I stumbled upon these. I have loved the comeback of the acid wash jean trend. I saw a pair that I thought looked really good from Express, but I never got them. Then, when Express was having one of their site-wide sales I remembered that I had wanted those jeans. Well, when I went to look for them they only had one size left and it was not my size. But now, I was really wanting a…

    Knotted Graphic Tee + Leopard Leggings

    Happy Friday! I know days are starting to blend, but hopefully you’re doing well and and staying sane! I put this outfit together last weekend and it’s one that I had envisioned in my mind for days beforehand and just hoped it would look good. And I’m so happy with how it turned out! I wore this light blue graphic tee and knotted it up in the front. I paired it with black & grey ponte leggings in a leopard print and a denim jacket. My tee has a half moon style print and written around it it says, “Follow me into the night…let’s lay under the stars; my head…

  • Leopard Studded Sneakers


    Leopard Studded Sneakers

    I’ve been loving fun sneakers and slip ons lately and I’ve been stocking up like crazy for when the warm weather comes. Or, you know, when we can actually go out. I pre-ordered these leopard studded sneakers back in January, I think, and they arrived recently. They are so cool and edgy, but totally wearable! I love that the leopard is just an accent along with the faux leather strip and studs so it’s not too much or over the top. I wore them last weekend with leggings and a front tie button down top. Sneakers: Vici | Top: Abercrombie & Fitch | Leggings: Express (here) The sneakers are comfy…

    Sprucing Up Your Exterior Like A Boss When it comes to our homes, we all want to be in and around the loveliest possible environment. We do all we can to make the place function perfectly, and for it to look as beautiful as possible. A lot of attention gets placed on the inside – and rightly so as it’s where we’re stationed for the majority of our lives – but it’s not ALL about the interior.  The outside needs some love, too, remember. People’s first impressions count for a lot, and they’re not going to be looking at the interior when they first pull up on the driveway! The exterior also needs to be looked…

    Neon Trim Shearling Pullover

    Are you on board with the neon trend? I am! I think it’s so fun and the bright colors help cheer me up in these trying times. If you’re not too sure about the neon trend and don’t want to wear a solid, highlighter colored sweatshirt or pants, then this faux shearling pullover with a neon green trim is the perfect way to dip your toe in to the trend. I love the color combo of this pullover. The beige/oatmeal color faux shearling with the bright neon green is so good. I love the pop of color and I think the green inside the hood is the perfect touch. The color…
