Friends & Family: LOFT Sale

It’s Friends and Family at LOFT, ie 40% off the store, and since we’re all friends (and family), I ventured into the dressing room yesterday to check out all the goodies! I admit it was difficult to get excited about all the pretty spring pieces as we watched the hail fall outside, but I did […]

Lady in Pink

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We got to briefly enjoy some summer-like weather which then quickly turned its back on us and walked away, lol. I’ll take what I can get though! Pink is a favorite color of mine, both when it comes to apparel as well as decor in my home. […]

Spring Florals

Nothing says spring more than flowers and more flowers, right? I know you guys just saw this floral bomber jacket here, but I couldn’t help wearing it again. Spring jackets are great because they can become more a part of your outfit than any winter coats can. This is the time of year (in addition […]

Instagram Round-Up

Happy Wednesday, all! As I sit writing this Tuesday evening, I’m finding myself completely distracted as I watch The Crown in the background. It’s a Netflix series (that I’ve found out many of you also enjoy) that requires most of your attention in order to follow along. That’s difficult for me because this is typically […]

Navy Bomber

Loving Lately

Hey guys! I know my blogging is off a bit this week due to the long weekend for Easter (and me just falling behind), but today I wanted to share some of what I’ve been loving lately. These are some of the things that I’ve been eyeing up since my Lenten shopping ban. I’ve since […]

Easter 2018

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. We spent time with family, hunted all the eggs, consumed too much food and celebrated Jesus’ Resurrection! It was good. Since we’ve been in State College, PA, it’s been our tradition to take family pictures after our church service. I’ve learned to let the kids run […]

Making your Wardrobe Work: Work to Weekend

Hi ladies! This post initiated with a friend/reader asking how she could blend her work week wardrobe with her weekend attire. I thought this was a great question which I don’t address very often being that my day to day can be pretty casual. I thought about putting some inspiration boards together, which I still […]

Spring Decor

Decorating is a slow and ever evolving process for me and my home. Sometimes I’ll know exactly what I want where and other times it takes me years to be able to fill a space the way I want it filled. I love finding ‘inspiration’ pieces and working off of those special items, whether they […]
