A Pretty Ruffled Top

If you guys know me at all, you know my love for a good ruffle. When used well, they are such a beautiful accent that elevate an outfit. This top has a loose fit, but with a subtle front-tuck it’s both beautiful and flattering. Paired with jeans, this outfit is versatile enough to fit any […]

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is underway! It is now open to cardholders and will open to everyone on July 28th. Despite being a bit over-hyped in my opinion, there are still some great deals to be found. There are a number of items that pop back every year and a bunch of go-to brands that […]

Summer Shirt Dress

I love shirt dresses during the warmer months. They have such a classic and timeless appeal to them that always draws me in. The neon embroidery on this one is a perfect summer accent. I styled it here for church but later on left it un-buttoned and wore it as a coverup to the pool. […]

Laid back, put together style feels like my go-to lately. Regardless of the season, my day-to-day typically allows for casual dress, yet at the same time, I like to feel as though I put a touch of effort into my outfits. Playing around with color combos and various materials are two ways to to do […]

Loving Lately: Rifle Paper Co.

When it comes to pretty and unique items for myself or a gift, Rifle Paper Co. is one place I’ve always turned to. Their bold and beautiful designs are striking to me and can turn any ordinary item, like an umbrella or a lunch box for example, into something eye catching. They started out with […]

Flutter Sleeves

School’s out for summer rin our household! Granted, we still have to wrap up dance with a recital and soccer with one more game, but no more homework or having to pull kids out of bed for now :) Swim team starts this week and it’s been such a great experience with my older two […]
