Festive Attire You Can Wear All Summer Long

It’d hard to believe that Memorial Day, the unofficial (or is it official?) kick-off to summer is upon us! Pools will be opening, the sun will hopefully be shining and BBQ’ing will be in abundance. I always feel obligated to dress somewhat patriotically for the occasion but I’m never one to be over the top […]

Denim Jumpsuit

Happy Monday, all! We had a great albeit busy weekend and I am looking forward to playing a little catch up today! There always seems to be so much to cram into a weekend, especially during this spring/end of school season. Sports events, recitals, picnics, get-togethers, and all the yard work. I never look forward […]

Insta Looks

Hello Friday! I just sent my son and husband off on a day-long field trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo. I’m typically the chaperoning parent, so they were excited to have a ‘boys day’ together, along with a bus full of 4th graders :) I should probably have a beer cracked open for him when he […]

Spring Layering

We’ve had a chilly week thus far here in central PA. Layering has been a must, but I’m never opposed to tossing on a denim jacket. If you’ve been following along, you know that I have two favorites in that category. This splurge and this steal. The first is more fitted with the perfect touch […]

Dressed Up

Happy Monday! This past weekend flew by as we celebrated Audrey’s 4th birthday and Mother’s Day. It rained and poured all day yesterday which is quite the bummer when you’re excited to wear your most favorite dress! I had shared this dress with you on Instagram when it had first arrived and couldn’t wait to […]

Friday Finds: Straw Bags

Happy Friday! Yesterday we celebrated my baby turning 4 (to be clear, she will always be my baby) and she loved every minute of her day. From waking up to some new goodies (this ice cream shop was the biggest hit), to popsicles at preschool, birthday cake before dinner (because big brother had to run […]

Everyday Chambray

Between the rainy weather and life in general, capturing my outfits on camera has been proving difficult over the past few weeks. For the most part, I’ve been rotating through a lot of my everyday basics, some of which you saw on Monday’s post. A chambray top is a year round staple, but I get […]

May Must-Haves

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I spent Saturday celebrating an early Mother’s Day with my mother and family enjoying brunch and a local rendition of Mama Mia (which was fantastic!). Yesterday I battled a nagging headache, but with a non-stop rainy day, I didn’t mind the chance to slow down and just […]

Loft Sale + Try-On

I’m glad you gals enjoy try-on sessions, because on the heels of Wednesday’s Madewell try-on comes one for Loft! Everything I’m sharing is 40% off, so it’s the perfect (and only) time I like to shop! There are a bunch of cute options for showers, Mother’s Day, fun get-togethers etc. I also found great everyday […]

Madewell Try-On

Madewell is one of those stores that always seems to be ‘on’. I say ‘on’ in the sense that I would take half their store, at any given moment, in a heartbeat. Their casual yet pulled together vibe is right up my alley and many of their spring pieces have me even more excited to […]
