 (click on image to enlarge) Outfit 1: Top / Denim / Bag / Shoes / Necklace / Bracelet Outfit 2: Dress / Scarf / Booties / Bag / Watch / Earrings I believe we are officially finding ourselves in the transition period as we head out of winter and into spring! Light layering during spring […]

Navy Layers

Thankfully this outfit works perfectly for maternity style, but I love the fact that it’s an outfit I’d wear during my non-pregnancy days as well. I do my best not to purchase maternity clothes that I wouldn’t buy if I weren’t pregnant because honestly, some of the styles are just horrendous. At the beginning of […]

High Five for Friday

Friday is here and I am officially exhausted. It’s been a busy week and having my son home for spring break (which meant no chance of a nap for me!) kept things interesting. I’ve also been making preparations as we get ready to head to NY next week for my SIL’s wedding, yay! Haircuts, dry […]

Coat Free

It’s exciting times when I can start to step outside sans coat! Granted, I still had to layer with a turtleneck, sweater and scarf, but the sun was shining and it was glorious. I just recently grabbed this scarf at Madewell and the light texture of it makes it perfect for spring/summer. It’ll look great […]

Some Beauty Product Updates

I realized that I hadn’t talked beauty in a bit with you all. The main reason is likely because my beauty habits don’t change all that frequently. For the most part, I continue to follow this routine which I discussed with you a while back. But there have been a few tweaks and additions. Let’s […]

Easy on the Feet

All I can say is thank goodness sneakers are so on-trend right now. These days when winter weather boots are not required, I’ve been drawn to either my Converse or these New Balance sneakers. Fortunately they don’t take away from my outfits, but on the contrary add to it. Not to mention the fact that […]

High Five for Friday

My hope is that this will be the last week that I will complain about the weather. With more school cancellations/delays due to snow and ice, I don’t think I’m the only one eager to see a blade of grass and some buds on the trees! We did our best to keep ourselves busy, although […]

Let’s Pretend…

Let’s pretend that spring is actually on it’s way, shall we? Since any outfit shooting was ruled out by mother nature this week, I instead opted to work together some outfits that I’m dreaming of wearing. You know me and my love for pastels….and ruffles! So outfit #1 is obviously right up my alley. I […]

Quinoa Chicken Parm

For all of my fellow chicken parmesan lovers, this one’s for you. With all of the flavor that you’d expect plus the added bonus of using quinoa, this dish doesn’t disappoint. Most definitely a hit with my family as I hope it will be for yours! Quinoa Chicken Parmesan via Damn Delicious: INGREDIENTS 1 cup […]

8 of My Shopping Secrets, Revealed

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you likely know that I love getting a deal. If you ask my mother, she’d confirm that given options, I always gravitate toward the most expensive items without any prior knowledge of the prices. Good taste? That’s subjective, but regardless, the price tags always work against […]
