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 […]


Spring is starting to makes its appearance on the shelves at Loft! Our weather may not be there just yet, but I love seeing the bright colors and floral prints alluding to the fact that sunshine and warmth is somewhere on the horizon! Today I’m sharing some things that caught my eye that include a […]

Pretty Pink Tunic

In honor of Valentine’s Day, I broke out one of my favorite sweaters in a beautiful shade of pink. I own this tunic sweater in a couple of colors and it’s easily one of my favorite styles to wear. I pair it with leggings and sneakers just as easily as I do with a pair […]

Valentine Gift Ideas

I don’t know how it happened, but Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! We as a family don’t go overboard for this particular holiday but we aren’t ones that pass up a day to show others some love either! Jack and I typically try to squeeze in a brunch together to avoid the dinner […]

Holiday Style

After I shared my last post where I styled a pair of velvet pants in a dressed down manner, the wheels started spinning. I thought about more of my festive pieces that hold a spot in my closet but only get worn once or twice a season if they’re lucky. As I brainstormed, more and […]

Dressing Down Festive Attire
