Masks for the Whole Family

I don’t know about you all, but I feel like I’m still adjusting to this whole new world of mask wearing. Fortunately, we haven’t had to wear ours for extended periods of time yet, only when we are running in/out of stores and any offices. I’ve been trying to get the kids more adjusted to […]

Puff Sleeve Sweatshirt

As much as I love basics, I find that I love basics with a little something extra. This sweatshirt with the puff sleeves is a perfect example. That detail ends up amplifying the entire look, yet you only feel the comfort that a sweatshirt has to offer. These shorts remain my favorite denim shortly, possibly […]

Outdoor living spaces seem to be something that many of us are appreciating more than ever. Being able to expand your square footage by any amount can feel like quite the luxury. This year we made a few updates to our deck that have made a huge difference in the way we utilize the space. […]

Madewell Summer Sweater + Shorts

I love coming across a really good summer sweater. What I mean by really good is that it has to have a nice, relaxed fit, be warm enough for chilly nights but still light and breezy and come in a light, neutral color that goes with everything while also showing off sunkissed skin ;) Every […]

Everyday Style: Girly Girl

I love a good girly look. Ruffles, bows, eyelet details…I’m here for it all. For the past few months, my focus has been practical in purchasing what I’m most comfortable wearing around the home. But now that my schedule isn’t completely empty, it’s nice to have a few pretty pieces to turn to. The problem […]

Athletic-Wear Favorites

Workout-wear feels more important to my wardrobe than ever before these days. With summer upon us, there are many days that I never make it out of my morning workout attire. Unless we are heading to the pool, it doesn’t always seem necessary since we’ll likely just be carrying on outdoors. I’m becoming quite fond […]
