Sweater Weather

One of may favorite parts of fall? Sweaters. I love how warm and comfortable they are in the crisp, cool air. The time we have prior to needing additional outerwear is the best. In general, dressing for weekend, fall days is so easy when you can throw on a broken in pair of jeans, a […]

High Five for Friday

It’s Friday and our household has made it through our first week of fall. Jack is back in preschool and is overjoyed to be staying for ‘lunch bunch’ this year. This of course means that I get to pack his lunch daily, but he thinks it’s the coolest thing and has thus far been helping […]

Strawberry Muffins

I subscribe to various sites and receive new recipes in my inbox on a daily basis. I love trying new foods so I’m always on the hunt for delicious recipes. When I received an email titled “8 Muffin Recipes Kids Will Love” I thought sure, why not? It’s for the kids. I opted for the […]

Making Color Work for You

Personal style is a very important part of my life. The way in which one dresses speaks volumes about them as a person. Regardless of how much thought one puts into their outfits, they’re making a statement to everyone they encounter, including themselves. I love the show What Not to Wear. In this TLC reality show […]

Currently Loving: Zara

In addition to missing all of our friends from NY/NJ, I most certainly miss the shopping! I’m adjusting to the world of online shopping, but it was always nice being able to pop into any store to browse and try on on any given day. Thankfully many stores now often or always offer free shipping […]

Wearing Stripes

It’s Monday and my families’ first official week of fall. After playing hooky last week while we were at the shore, my 4yo starts his second year of preschool today and subsequently gets us back on a schedule. Even though our vacation is behind us, I now have this dress as a little memento. I […]

High Five for Friday

This is one Friday I am sad to see arrive as our week of fun at the shore comes to an end. Along with our friends and their two children, we have had an amazing week in Stone Harbor, NJ enjoying the town, the weather and the memories we’ve made. As I mentioned on Monday, […]

Cuffed Sleeves

I love a good button up shirt. I can’t tell you how many I have in my closet, and yet I am always finding a new one that I have to have. They can be casual, dressy, light, structured, flannel, oxford, chambray…in other words, versatile. What’s funny though, is that I rarely wear them with the sleeves […]

Some New Beauty Favorites

My beauty routine often becomes very monotonous. I can typically get through the process while my mind goes through the errands I need to run, the diapers I need to order and the emails I need to send. I look up and my face is done without even realizing I had picked up a brush. […]

Cargo and Lace

There are some colors that pair so perfectly together and green and pink are two of them. In particular army green and light pink. I’m linking up with my girlfriend Becky at Mommy in Heels today as she and other bloggers display their military style. As I was sorting through my closet, I realized that […]
