Meet Princess Awesome! (Girls can like Dinosaurs, Pirates and Airplanes too!)

I am so impressed by Moms.  Really.  Some of you ladies really take my breath away with all of the hats that you wear and all of the things that you accomplish.  Recently I decided to start a series of posts hi lighting some crafty ladies.  Really, I wish I was able to do what you do.  You see, I am a #PinterestAlwaysFail.  Bless my own heart, I really try....more

Coming Up Roses.

Sleeves in late July? Not normally.But I’ll make an exception for this dress.When Swell sent me this dark floral number, the boho vibe caused me to immediately picture wearing it with tall leather boots usually reserved for fall. Bridget Bardot in the ‘burbs, or something like that....more

Get Dressy.

I love dresses like this. A classic color palette + cut, with some sass in the form of an open back and a faux leather collar. All I needed to do to complete the outfit was throw on a pair of shoes– nude strappy sandals with a snakeskin platform did the trick.

Yo, check the location change. This post is coming to you from my back patio. (Best enjoy this end-of-summer weather while we can, no?)I have been lusting after this dress for ages and ages– how good are the neon pink stripes against the cool beige? (This dress is last-season JCrew, and I finally found it in my size on eBay, thank you fashion gods!) I went light on the jewelry– Midwest humidity and all– and wore some summery color block sandals to finish the look. Happy first week of September!...more

Bold Statement (Necklaces).

I’ve been wearing this gorgeous Neon Alaqua bib necklace from the Courtney Kerr for BaubleBar collection on a regular basis for over a month now, and I haven’t yet grown tired of it. It’s just so fun, and works with almost everything.Case in point: I’ve linked up with a few of my blogging pals to showcase different ways of styling the Alaqua bib. How we roll:...more
