I’m so excited to share my new necklace from Noonday collection. You can read about noonday’s story here and how they are changing lives in Uganda. And the jewelry is beautiful and full of color.

I love how the necklace ties in the back. So sweet.

Steve and I are away this weekend celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary. I didn’t pack any diapers or snacks or medicines. Just my clothes and make up. We’ll be sleeping in and eating out and generally laying around. I’m looking forward to staying up late chatting with him, holding his hand as we walk around Santa Barbara and reading a couple books. Of course, I’m missing the boys but it’s so good to get some time together, just him and I. Everyday life, the to-dos and the mundane wear us down. It’s good for us to steal some time, get away and focus on being a couple. Thirteen years and counting–I love ‘us’.

Hello friends! It’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration. I guess I was feeling extra girly yesterday, because I ended up wearing pink pants with a floral top.

I think the navy in the top and the chunky bangles keep the outfit from being too ‘sweet’. Pink jeans, Target. Floral top, Lauren Conrad for Kohls. Belt H&M. Wedges, Dana Buchman for Kohls. Bangles. thrifted. Sun droplets necklace, my shop.


What I’m Wearing {neutrals for summer}

Hi friends! It’s Wednesday and also the 4th of July! Which means we’ll be having a lazy day with family and celebrating David’s 10th birthday. Woohoo! I’m linking up with Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

I’ve had this skirt and top for a while, but I’ve never worn them–so I decided to make it work. It felt like a dressy outfit and very neutral–so I added some color with our turquoise stones necklace. Happy 4th friends! I hope your day is mellow and fun.

Skirt, TJ Maxx. Button-up top, Forever 21. Sandals, TJ Maxx. Turquoise stones necklace, My shop. Cuff, flea market.


what i’m wearing {leopard print and polka dots}

what I'm wearing By June 20, 2012 14 Comments

Hi friends! It’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration.

We are totally transitioning to summer–so of course all I want to do is lay around and drink coffee. But I am going into the workshop a few days a weeks–so that involves showering and getting dressed. Once I get in the shower I’m fine–it’s just getting motivated to get up!

Since leopard print is a neutral {haha} I thought it would be fun to pair it with another print. This girl is my inspiration for mixing patterns. And when you’re mixing patterns–you have to just have fun and go for it!

And if you’re going to wear leopard print pants with a polka dot top, you should totally add a green bracelet and red shoes to finish it off.

Leopard print jeans, Target. Polka dot blouse, Target {like 3 years ago}. Belt, Target {I’m seeing a theme here.} Red wedges, Payless. Connected necklace, my shop.

Did you see the special going on right now? Get a free Let Love Grow necklace with any purchase in the shop! Um, yeah, that’s insane!! Just enter code letlovegrow at checkout. It ends tomorrow–so go check it out!

I wore this outfit a couple days ago to the workshop and then to the boys’ end of the year parties at school. Seriously, cobalt and turquoise might be my new favorite color combination.

The sun is shining, we have french toast in our bellies and I’m pretty sure today is going to be a good day!

Hmmm, that sounds perfect, doesn’t it?!
