casual friday

Every Friday is pretty much casual Friday for me, but I'm loving this casual look today. This is me trying to dress half for fall and half for summer. Is it working? Regardless, let me tell you a little bit about this shirt. I stalked it online for a long while. It even went on sale and I still didn't get it. Well, last weekend I went shopping with a friend and we happen to walk in LOFT. And there it was, on sale, waiting for me to come buy it. Ah, it was like the universe aligned this! I'm not sure if it's that serious, but it sure did feel like a huge win in my book. I just couldn't wait to wear it. By the way, "marled" or "flecked" tops and sweaters are in this season, in case you were curious. Happy weekend!

season to season staples

end of summer buys

So, does anyone else get completely lost between seasons? (raise of hands) I know I do! I even get confused during seasons when this southern weather starts losing its mind. This is when a versatile closet comes into play! Investing in transitional pieces will save you tons of headache! All of these pieces above are great examples of things to be on the lookout for year round and to add to your forever growing wardrobe! For example, boyfriend jeans (from Nordstrom) -they can be worn with heels and a loose tank for the warmer days or if it's cooler throw on some booties and a jacket over a striped top. Take the plaid top above (from One Stop Plus), and pair it with shorts for the summer or black jeans and a vest for the fall! We want options people. What are your favorite season to season pieces??

keep it simple

Sometimes sticking to what you know is the best choice. Don't you agree? A trusty skirt and black. Black is always a good move. No one hates black. So, all I really got today is to tell you how much I love black and that it's a great choice. Intriguing. Simple outfit, simple words.

dress it up

Let me tell you a little secret, or maybe it's not a secret at all. But just because you blog about clothes doesn't mean you have the budget to buy new things every week, or every month. Are you with me? So I've been getting creative. Actually, by creative I mean I've just been wearing the same things over and over. That's what normal people do, right? I've had this dress for a while and it's one of my favorites. It's so 1950's house wife (let's be honest, I did make homemade hummus recently, so I qualify) and I kind of love it. But it's also one of those dresses that works for any occasion, church, weddings, bridal showers, or date night. 

And yes, I cut my hair! Thanks for asking. It feels so good. I haven't tried it curly yet, so we'll see how that goes. Anybody have any tips on curling shorter, mid-length hair?

Pretty embarrassing, but the first time I wore this cardigan out I had just bought it the week before. I got compliment after compliment from strangers and I was feeling good, you know what I mean. Then at the very end of the day I notice that not only had I left the tags on, but I also left a size sticker on the front of it, a big one, all day. Now I wonder if any of those strangers saw these and were totally making fun of me. Well played, strangers. 

On another note, please ignore my roots. Salon day is today, hallelujah! And I may or may not be itching to cut it.

year one

  So, it's a little delayed, but during our first year of marriage we filmed some clips here and there of major events, our honeymoon, holidays, and even normal days. We figured we would do it every year, and it would be a fun glimpse to look back on in the future. So this is year one. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did living it.

summer layers

Ah, summer I really like you. But layers, layers I love you. This is the only layer I could get on today without profusely sweating. But layers are why I love the fall and I'm definitely looking forward to it! It's been feeling a bit like fall some days, don't ya think? I feel like, in the simplest way, this outfit describes me well. Some amazing jeans, a little bit of a heel, casual, comfortable, with a tiny hint of pink. Which outfits of yours are you most comfortable in?
