‘Tis the Season for Plaid

As of this weekend, I have officially kicked off my plaid season. I feel weird wearing plaid after Christmas (especially if it’s heavily green or red) so I have a short window to get my tartan fix in. This plaid dress definitely leans towards “holiday,” but luckily I had a great excuse to wear it…

Winter Cozies

I’ve switched over completely to all of my winter cozy items. I held on for as long as I could, but it’s been so chilly lately that I made the official switch. Over the years, I’ve learned that having separate winter and summer weight items makes a huge difference. Especially when it starts getting cold.  …

The Lodge Coat

J. Crew’s lodge coat has been one of my favorites for the past few years. It’s definitely the warmest wool coat I own and it’s what I reach for when I’m freezing but don’t want to commit to a puffer. It has everything I want/need in a wool coat for winter and it strikes the…

Diary No. 19

Rounding up another two weeks’ worth of iPhone photos from my camera roll. I’m really liking how my office/second guest room is coming along. I did the desk area as part of a campaign with HomeGoods and it was actually kind of a “stressful” behind the scenes. Part of the campaign was that I had…


On My Radar

I had a GREAT week. I’m not exactly sure what is happening, but I can’t complain at all. A lot of little things seem to be lining up and on a big scale, I feel really at peace with what’s to come. Last weekend I was in Nashville for Pencil & Paper Co’s Creative Camp…


Affordable & Effective Retinol

I often have people comment on my coloring– my fair skin and super dark hair. But I can’t say that I get too many skin comments. About three weeks into using Olay’s Retinol24 Moisturizer though, the craziest thing happened. It’s going to sound like I made this up because it’s a sponsored post but I…

On The Dot

I haven’t been into polka dots for a while now. I think I went a little overboard with them in college/right after college and then got sick of them. But this top has me thinking twice about writing them off for good. In fact, I think they’re drawing me back to the dark side. Oh,…

Our Master Bedroom

I am so, so, so excited to share the “reveal” of our master bedroom. It’s the first officially completed room and it feels amazing to have it complete! This was also the biggest “blank slate” I tackled because we had our old furniture put in the guest room. We actually slept there for the first…

1 Girl, 5 Outfits: Elsa Massey

I’m extra excited about today’s 1 Girl, 5 Outfits post because it’s by my new friend Elsa. We met a few months ago after I moved to the suburbs. We reached out to each other via DM (I’m not sure if I did it first or if she did) and then got together for a…
