I definitely think this summer is going to be all about skirts–so easy, so feminine! I love it.

Skirt, TJ Maxx. Sandals, American Eagle Outfitters. White tee, Target. Denim Jacket, Gap. Bits of my heart bracelet, my shop. Turquoise stones necklace, coming to my shop Tuesday! Yay!

After today, the boys have 7 more days of school. I’m counting down to summer! Lazy mornings, no homework, sunshine and the beach–here we come!


what I’m wearing {mixing rust and turquoise}

what I'm wearing By May 30, 2012 14 Comments

Hi friends! I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration!

I love mixing rust and turquoise–well I love mixing anything and turquoise, but rust seems a bit unexpected I think. Also, rust and soft pink would be lovely. The black top and denim jacket and just easy and comfortable. The shoes are HIGH. They are actually really comfortable to walk in, but I don’t trust myself to carry David while I’m wearing them–so he can walk on his own or hop in the stroller!
Pleated skirt, brought back from England last summer–but I found a similar skirt at Forever 21. Denim jacket, Gap. Black tee, Kohls. Wedges, Lucky Brand. Turquoise stones necklace, coming soon to my shop!

I’ve had these jeans for a few years–they’re Joe’s Jeans, that I bought via TJ Maxx. And they never fit quite right until recently–now they’ve become a favorite. And this vintage belt I found at Ruby Rose is so fun! I’ve never seen anything quite like it.  Joes Jeans, via TJ Maxx. Black top, Target. Belt, Ruby Rose. Wedges, Dana Buchman for Kohls. Bangles, thrifted. Love in my Anchor necklace, coming soon to my shop! And yes, love is my anchor and also, I love this anchor necklace! Why don’t we give one away? Blog, tweet or FB about this giveaway and make sure to leave a comment for each entry! I’ll pick a winner tomorrow {Tuesday} evening.


what i’m wearing {vintage florals}

This outfit was colorful and happy. I picked up the yellow wedges at kohl’s for $15 {they were in sale and I had a $10 kohl’s cash coupon}. They finished off the outfit perfectly–even though I have this strange little spot on my ankle where they rubbed. I guess they’ll take a little breaking in. Green floral skirt, Anthropologie. Green tee, Target. Denim jacket, Gap. Yellow wedges, Kohls. Meadow bracelet, Heartfelt by Lisa Leonard Designs.

It’s Saturday {whoohoo!} and I’m currently sitting here in my jammies, sipping coffee and working up the motivation to do some serious cleaning and purging in the boys’ room today. What are your weekend plans?

Orange and turquoise–makes me want to sit in the summer sunshine and sip iced tea, don’t you agree?


what i’m wearing {red, thrifted skirt}

I found this red, flowy skirt at a thrift store last week, and I’m pretty sure it will be a summer staple. I can’t tell you how many times I don’t find anything while I scour thrift stores, and then I’ll score a couple gems and it’s so fun and motivating!

What I’m Wearing {navy, red & aqua)

Hey friends, it’s Wednesday and I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration. You’ve seen all the pieces of this outfit before–except for maybe the belt {which I found on sale at J Crew}. The aqua belt keeps the outfit from being too ‘americana’.  I’m not going to a 4th of July picnic–just to the workshop.

Striped tee, Banana Republic. Red skinny jeans, Target. Aqua belt, J Crew. Wedges, Dana Buchman for Kohls. Denim Jacket, Gap. Sneak peek of a necklace soon to be in our shop–more on that soon!

Wanna know a secret? I get dressed in the morning, think, “This a fun outfit, I’ll take a few pics.” Then I edit the photos, upload them to my blog and that’s when the waves of insecurity start to wash over me. “This is the lamest outfit” I think. Or “my hips looks huge.” Or “my hair is ridiculous.”  And then I get a grip, remind myself not to take it too seriously and I share it anyway.  Fashion is fun, but it’s certainly not the most important thing, is it?

Here’s to finding a little bit of inspiration in the small things.


what i’m wearing {coral and yellow}

what I'm wearing By May 14, 2012 16 Comments

It has been really warm lately–and it’s wonderful! The mornings start out cool and then the sun warms everything up by noon. And at 7:30pm there is still a lovely glow to the evening. Don’t you love longer days? This is an easy outfit for the workshop and the wedges are comfortable enough to wear all day long. Mixing coral and yellow is a new combo for me–but nothing too crazy, right?


 Boyfriend jeans, Gap. Yellow tee and coral cardi, both Target. Embroidered belt, Lucky Jeans. Wedges, Dana Buchman for Kohls. Connected Necklace, my shop.

This outfit is super casual but dressed up just a bit with wedges, a belt and lipstick. Once I get home I switch out my wedges for flip flops and start dinner. Then after dinner I put on my jammies and get the boys bathed. What’s your now-I’m-home-and-it’s-time-to-get-comfy routine?


What I’m Wearing {red skinny jeans}

I’m linking up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for some fashion inspiration!

I’m starting to think bright denim might be my go to look for this summer. That and maxi skirts. So easy and so fun! Target is carrying some colorful skinny jeans for only $25. Love that. I couldn’t find the jeans online, but I found them at my local Target.

Red skinny jeans, Target. Striped tee, H&M. Denim jacket, Old Navy. Black wedges, Dana Buchman from Kohls. Leopard print belt, Target. Connected necklace, my shop.

what i’m wearing {re-fashioned sleeves}

what I'm wearing By May 8, 2012 13 Comments

I got this dress on sale at Anthropologie a few months ago and it had big puffy sleeves that weren’t very flattering. So after a few tries of putting it on and trying to make it work, I took a pair of scissors and cut the sleeves off. I washed it and the raw edge came out fine. Now I love the dress!
Dress and boots, both Anthropologie. Leopard print belt, TJ Maxx. Vintage bangles, thrifted. Sun droplets necklace, my shop.

For this dress, it was either give it away or do something drastic with the sleeves. Have you altered a piece of clothing lately?
