Summer Blazer + Gingham pants

I love a good business casual look regardless of where I’m wearing it. This blazer is lightweight, comes in a bunch of color ways and is perfect for summer. It has a slightly oversized look which is on-trend at the moment, yet it doesn’t feel overly boxy or shapeless. It would look just as cute […]

Strawberry Salad

This salad is a fan favorite that I have been making for years. Someone made it at a school function many years ago and I immediately asked for the recipe which I’ve kept tucked into my notes since then. I love mixing fruit into a salad and when you pair it with slivered candied almonds […]

Stunning Exterior Update: Before/After

I realize that I opened with the spoiler on this exterior project, but my hope is that when you scroll to the before, it’ll be all the more impressive! This was a project that I worked on last summer, but with the way things go, I rarely have the time and/or final images to share […]

Today I’m sharing some things that caught my eye that include a […]
