a lovely living

Monthly Archives for April 2015


The reoccurring theme in my wardrobe as of late has been ‘draped’. I’m reaching for anything that will fully cover my 38 week bump of a belly. Surprisingly enough, the only piece of this outfit that is maternity, however, are the jeans. This goes to show that my love for loose layers isn’t limited to […]

Crockpot: Hungarian Goulash

During the warmer months if we aren’t planning on grilling, I often find myself turning to the crockpot. I typically want to spend more time outdoors and less time over a hot stove. This crockpot recipe isn’t exactly typical, but it’s one that my family loves and I therefore turn to often. I can’t describe the […]

Loving Lately: Spring Dozen

Not much rhyme or reason behind this dozen, other than all being items that I have my eye on. I always love a good summer tote and both this versatile straw option and the bright printed bag have me tempted. Last summer I purchased a chambray cap that I ended up wearing more than I […]

Drapey Jacket

I haven’t been buying much of anything new lately, but when I saw this utility jacket at LOFT I eagerly awaited one of their 40% off sales. I love the sophisticated feel that comes with the soft, drapey material. I also love all of the details, including the cinched waist (which I’ll one day be able […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday! Another week has flown by, but I have to say that during the last month of pregnancy, I am more than happy to have the time fly. Everyone is quite excited to meet this little girl and I’m really looking forward to being able to move at more than a snails pace someday soon! […]

Loving on Your Mother

With Mother’s Day being just over two weeks away (yikes!), I figured it was time to share a few of my ideas with you. I’d venture to say that most mother’s care mainly about getting to spend time with their children (unless you have young children, in which case you may want a relaxing day at […]

A Look Back on Style

I like to refer to my choice in clothing/accessories as my personal style as opposed to fashion. When I think of fashion, my mind first goes to fashion week and everything that’s currently of the moment. Not that I don’t love getting a taste of all of that, don’t get me wrong, but my style […]

Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce

Now that the weather is pulling us outdoors and the thought of too much prep time in the kitchen is becoming less desirable, I wanted to share a quick recipe that I’ve used around here. It’s a basic skillet chicken topped with a mustard cream sauce that somehow transforms it into something spectacular. It’s so simple […]

Spring Fling

This dress has been a staple in my closet for some time now. I know I wore it though my last pregnancy, but it’s also been great for throwing on as a swimsuit cover-up in addition to wearing around on those summer days that I don’t care to put an outfit together. I wore it as […]

High Five for Friday

Did you know that yesterday was National High Five Day? Well, now you do ;) I hope you all had a great week and were able to enjoy some beautiful weather. Although I saw that it snowed in a few places out west?? Let’s pretend it didn’t. Here’s a look at our week: 1) A […]
