Travel Essentials

As you know, I now live incredibly far from my family. So when it comes to thinking about heading back home for the holidays my packing list seems to grow exponentially! I made a little list of things I can’t hit the road without! I hope it helps you think through your packing list too! … Continue reading

A Big Weekend

We had a pretty big weekend. We each got a new item of clothing from Old Navy, I picked up my new glasses, Timothy ordered glasses, and we added a new member to our family! Needless to say, it was a pretty great weekend. Meet Darius Sedgwick. He is a Yorkie and still very much … Continue reading

Layering Neutrals

I keep telling myself, “It’s not that cold.  It’s not that cold. It’s not that cold.” Meanwhile, I’m curled up under a blanket and several layers of clothing. I may have turned into a bit of a weenie. Regardless of the temperature, layering neutrals is always a win. Stripes will probably always be a staple … Continue reading

Dressing for Thanksgiving

Sometimes half the fun of holiday parties is getting dressed for them. I love an excuse to dress up, pull out my favorite pumps, or just to wear that glitzy necklace. However, if showing up to dinner in rhinestones and leopard isn’t your jam, I’ve got a few ideas for you too. Outfit 1 (GLAM): … Continue reading

I have really grown to adore Thanksgiving over the last couple years. It feels like a time to slow down, enjoy incredible food and even better people.

Aztec Print

I am happy to report that we are over a week into November and fall is still going strong! A coat is nearly mandatory, but I can still get away with exposed skin so I’m going to call it a win. No snow yet! Since fall is still here I can continue to play around … Continue reading

DIY Festive Napkins

Continuing on with the Thanksgiving theme I wanted to show you a super quick sewing project. Fabric napkins can be really expensive. I wanted to add that layer of sophistication to my tablescape but I didn’t want to pay $20+ to do it. I dug through my fabric box and found this striped fabric and … Continue reading

A Touch of Glam

We all know glitter and sparkle is great. Which is why when I saw this beanie a couple weeks ago (showed it to you in the Cold Weather post) I knew I needed it. Winter brings enough dreariness on its own, why mimic that in the way we dress? Let’s embrace winter with a little … Continue reading
