What to Wear to the Pumpkin Patch

What to Wear to the Pumpkin Patch

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, What To Wear | 1 comment

I know I mentioned it earlier this week, but I seriously want to go to the pumpkin patch like it’s my job right now. We’re hoping to make it this weekend in between a flurry of football games and a birthday to celebrate tomorrow. We’ve been having the most amazing fall weather this week. Bright, sunny, temperatures in the high 60s. It’s the perfect time of year for my favorite fall fashion. Think great jeans and booties, oversized sweaters and …

Three Ways: Fall Dresses

Three Ways: Fall Dresses

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 0 comments

I make no secret of the fact that most of the time I’d rather be wearing yoga pants or dresses. At last count I had some obscene number of dresses in my closet, nearly all of which I don on the regular. Our fall so far has been really warm and sunny, but there’s still just enough of a chill in the air to necessitate layering things up before leaving the house most days. Chillier weather definitely doesn’t keep me …

Three Ways: Floral for Fall

Three Ways: Floral for Fall

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 2 comments

I’ve been crazy about floral prints for a while now. I’m so glad to see this trend of yore making a major comeback this year. And it’s pretty perfect for fall, if you ask me! Layer it up with a great blazer and cropped jeans, pair it with rich autumnal shades of orange, or add a touch of leopard and this look will transition seamlessly from summer to the cooler months. Personally I’m into bold, slightly oversized floral patterns for …

What To Wear: Going Camping

What To Wear: Going Camping

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories | 1 comment

We’re gearing up for our big annual summer camping trip and, guys, I am so excited! I can’t even tell you how much I need this trip right now. We’re talking three days stranded on an island, cooking over a fire, sleeping in tents and lazing away the hours swimming and strolling the woods. Ok ok, so we’re not really stranded considering everyone is there with boats, but I like to pretend we’re on a completely deserted island with no …

Turns out, last week’s ode to indigo didn’t quite get my love affair with the color out of my brain. In fact, it may have only served to reaffirm my love. So as I do, I’ve found myself gravitating toward any number of lovely things sporting indigo as of late. From the most gorgeous indigo tablecloth to a pretty stunning pair of earrings, there is essentially no end to my conviction that just about everything should be blue and beautiful …

Knock on wood, it seems we’re finally going to get a reprieve from the unusually persistant rainy weather we’ve had lately. I can’t wait to soak up all the sunshine! Which, of course, has me loving any number of bright and summery things. From neon keychains to the perfect shade of nail polish (Essie’s The More the Merrier), I’m wanting to deck out everything in sight with a blast of cheerful color. Heck, I even want this ridiculously fun soccer …

In keeping with my love for all things patriotic at the moment, consider this your daily dose of festive red, white and blue. From colorful flip flops to the perfect red polka dot bathing suit to this striped striped t-shirt that I adore, I just can’t get enough at the moment. Which is probably pretty appropriate with the 4th just a few days away, no? Whether spending the day at the beach or just casually lounging at home, I think we should …

Summer Essentials: A Day At The Beach

Written by | filed under Fashion + Accessories, Summer | 3 comments

It’s rainy here today. Unpleasantly so. But you know what? I’m not letting it get me down. Or at least, I’m trying not to. By rainy day dreaming about long lazy summer days at the beach, of course. Which naturally led me down a bunny trail of hunting down a few new summer essentials that I’d love to add to my closet this summer. A great bathing suit, the perfect canvas tote and a perfectly adorable cover up, for starters!
