Pearl accents for a pop of fun on a Monday!

Seriously, how in the world is it the first Monday in December? Where did this Fall go? Actually, where the heck did this YEAR go? I feel like I’ve blinked and 2017 is literally almost over. There have been a million and one things that have happened; lots of them pretty crappy but a few of them super positive. Like building a NEW HOME. I mean the process could not be moving along any slower but eventually I’m sure I’ll be grateful for not having to rush all of these major decisions so maybe it’s a blessing in disguise. November was a super weird month for me. It was kind of like a mirage so I’m honestly pretty glad it’s done. I did turn 29 last week–EEEEK! Thankfully two of my best girls & their hubbies were on board for a Wednesday evening full of lots of laughs and 1 too many strawberry margs. I’m now refreshed and have felt a renewed passion for the blog, getting dressed in something other than Lulu leggings and taming my hair that is the longest it has been in years!

All in the details…

It’s no secret that pearls are having a major moment. From cute joggers to velvet slides to my v-neck sweater these little gems are popping up everywhere. When Kyle and I went out to take these photos he immediately asked what the heck ‘those little balls’ were on my sleeves. Uhmmmm, they’re pearls. DUH! 😉 Sometimes he just doesn’t get what’s on trend at the moment. Bless his heart. I love it though so that’s really all that matters. The slightly billowy sleeves are super fun and the crop fit work perfectly with my favorite high-waist Current/Elliott denim. I love simple yet chic looks that involve minimal effort but still give off a put-together vibe and this get-up does exactly that for me. Plus I’m totally crushing on olive variations lately. I feel like so many things I’ve purchased have been from the green family and I don’t know why. Actually my order history the last few weeks has been all over the place. It’s been insanely nice weather lately and I’ve found myself ordering things that aren’t exactly going to get me through Winter. Fingers crossed seasonal depression isn’t already hitting me! On that note, I’m off to order myself *THIS BELT* that I’ve been dyyyying to get my hands on. It’s my birthday present to myself because I only have 360-some days until I’m 30. And that deserves a gift. xox

Pearl Sweater / Denim / Mules (sold-out, similar HERE)

Give me ALL the sweaters. The wind has been so brutal all day and the temps just keep creeping lower and lower each evening. I’m absolutely dreading the cold that is to come. I am a fan of snow only one day each year and that is Christmas. Otherwise, get this blustery, gloomy, chilly crap […]

Friday is finally upon us! This week went by surprisingly quickly and I’ve felt relatively decent physically which has been a blessing. Emotionally I’m still on a roller coaster that knows no speed limits but with as with everything, time and prayer are sure to make the course easier day by day. I’ve continued to […]

I’m back and apparently Fall is really here. Like it is here in full-force. I think we hit our daily high when we woke up this morning and the temps are barely over 50* at the moment. The wind has picked up and it’s so cold {I’m a baby, I know!} that I had to […]

Mustard on Monday. If each day required an assigned color, today’s color would most definitely need be this bold yellow tone. It’s gloomy, chilly & windy here in Omaha so a bright hue is necessary to lighten up the blah mood I woke up in. I really do love rainy mornings but not so much […]

With all the hate floating around the world lately, I’m choosing to love. Love those around me, love what I’m doing, love the moment and most importantly: LOVE MY BODY. I’m doing things a little bit different on this particular Workout Wednesday and instead of sharing a new workout or cute fitness gear or a […]

It’s that time again! Time for another Insta Roundup. I feel like doing these every few months or so is a great way to show off some of my most popular outfits and candid snaps from Instagram that don’t make it to the blog for a full post. With Summer basically on it’s way out […]

Babes, we MADE IT! It’s Friday! YAY! This week didn’t seem to fly by like I had hoped but now we’re here so I’m not complaining. I honestly feel like this the last true ‘Summer weekend’ so I plan to take full advantage. Give me sun, a patio and no responsibilities for a good 72-ish […]

Ain’t nobody got time for excuses! For real, though. Especially in the exercise department. While I love the after effects of a good sweat session, I am not always super amped to get my booty out the door. It’s so easy to come up with excuses and reasons to NOT workout and seemingly less easy […]

Another sunny start to the work week here! I honestly can’t complain that it’s Monday. I’ve started to develop a newfound appreciation for them. They kick start everything: your weekly meal plan, your exercise routine, new intentions and goals. Don’t take the fondness too far though…I still love myself the weekends. Obviously. Especially this past […]
