It’s been awhile, I know I promised to be more on top of this blog. There has been a new job in a new city and a new house to move into- all within the last several months. Lots of change, but it’s still no excuse to let things slip.
But, there has been something big in the works. It’s a good thing, so no need to panic.
Stay tuned, as the best is yet to come…
Peace, Love, and Fashion Happiness,
I dipped my toes into the new pom pom obsession- quite literally. Take a look at these adorable LC Lauren Conrad Quartz Women’s Pointed Ballet Flats I just added to my closet. New favorite! These flats are perfect with a pair of skinnies and a cozy sweater.
You see them hanging on the rack in the store- those vibrant colored pants. You are drawn to these pants and their out of the box color, but, ultimately, you purchase the same blue or black version.
Nervous to try them out? Honestly, what do you have to lose? It’s not like you are required to wear them every day for the rest of your life.
Here are some colorful pants that I’ve worn in the past…
I’m all about the little touches that add extra flair or statement to an outfit. And when it comes to my glasses, which I typically don’t wear, I haven’t been very excited- probably why I never wear them. I have always purchased the typical black frame, structured and square shaped. But now that I am officially adulting, I realized I haven’t gotten a new prescription or glasses in quite awhile.
I’ve been hearing some great things about Warby Parker- stylish frames at an affordable price that you get to try-on at home for free. What did I have to lose?
Christmas will be here soon, a gathering time for family and friends to celebrate your blessings and all the love in your life.
However, there is no shame in making a holiday wish list, especially if it is to just treat yourself. Let’s be totally honest, a little extra sparkle and shine in your wardrobe makes for a great new year.
Here are 5 of my Christmas wishes…
‘Tis the season to shop for everyone… Everyone, but yourself. Toys for the kiddos, goodies for your friends, and lots of food for those holiday parties. But, how are you treating yourself?
Holiday gatherings are filled with family, love, and food- lots and LOTS of food! Here’s the dilemma: you want to look cute AND comfortable when feasting on Grandma’s turkey. And you not have to sacrifice one for the other. What you wear can be just as important as what you are piling upon your plate.
Here are a three things to NEVER wear on Thanksgiving (or any other family gathering) so you won’t regret your outfit three slices into apple pie or miss out on an impromptu game of flag football.
Thanksgiving is only 15 days away- the official beginning of Christmas shopping madness. I am happy to say that I began hunting for gifts in March- no last minute craziness for me, although I do enjoy it.
However, this season I vowed to shop a little differently. I want to purchase the majority of my Christmas gifts from local businesses.
Small Business Saturday, the Saturday following Thanksgiving, was created as a counterpart to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday. It is a day created to support local businesses that create jobs and boost the economy. “For every $100 spent at a local business, $68 returns to the community,” states Civic Economics.
With the winter chill arriving in Minnesota quicker than I hoped, I needed a new way to stay warm and fashionable. I love my down feather Calvin Klein coat, however, it becomes quite monotonous when worn every single day. I wanted to switch it up occasionally- try a new trend other than a long black coat.
I have already seen several women on the street flaunting their flowing capes (or as some might call a poncho). Could this new fad be the piece of clothing to break up my chilly day boredom?
Halloween arrives every year on the same day, October 31st. You’d think that I would finally be prepared for the day- costume already chosen, prepped, and ready.
Once again the night before I am going back and forth between 20 costumes trying to determine which would be the cutest, cheapest, and most original. Scouring through my closet for viable Halloween clothing, I discovered I had several key pieces for one simple costume.
