Ever since forever, Lilly Pulitzer has been the go-to for the vivid, bright, fun prints. It’s nearly impossible to have a blah day while wearing something Lilly because the bold patterns are an instant spirit-lifter. These 4″ Adie Shorts are no different. While this ‘Resort White Chasing Tail’ print is on the more mellow side […]

As I write this, tears are filling my eyes and I’m brought back to exactly where I was 9 years ago today. Everyone handles the loss of a loved one differently and for me, 7/17/06 will forever be a date that is burned into my head so vividly. Before that Monday, I had only experienced […]

White dresses can be intimidating. White tends to often be associated with all things bridal –Bachelorette Party dress & bridal showers & wedding gown–but as long as you steer clear of overly frilly frocks or obnoxiously lacey numbers, you’re great. The color really should be treated a summer {and winter for that matter} staple for EVERYONE! […]

With the heat index hovering around 100* for the next few days, flannel is probably one of the last materials you’re thinking about wearing…I can totally relate. MOST summer nights in the Midwest, though, cool off quite a bit once the sun goes down and a lightweight flannel is the perfect piece to cut the […]

I have to be honest, July 9th had been circled/highlighted/marked-in-bold for some time on my planner and in my phone.

Midi skirts have been all-the-rage lately but I’ve been a bit shy to accept the trend when it came to my own wardrobe. Usually pieces that hit anywhere between my lower knee and high ankle make me look even shorter (and more stocky) than I already do. Like most people, I tend to gravitate to […]

Oh how I love pink. Strawberry nail polish, hot pink crossbodys, powder pink throwblankets, and now…powder pink, shredded-to-pieces, boyfriend jeans. While I believe in investing (or you could call it splurging) on classic, high-end denim, I do NOT believe in spending a lot on trendy pairs of jeans. After finding these Paige skinnys and theseCurrent/Elliots this Spring, […]

It’s no surprise that I’m usually in #basicwhitegirl mode when it comes to putting on workout clothes. 90% of the time you will find me in head-to-toe ( from my headband to my socks) Lululemon. But I have a secret! Shhh, don’t tell Lulu but I’ve been ‘seeing other people’ in the world of fitness […]

After seeing off-the-shoulder tops and dresses just about everywhere this season, I knew that it was only a matter of time before one of them ended up in my closest. I’m NOT into spending a lot of money on trendy pieces so it was a little bit of a struggle finding a dress (and a […]
