Season of Romance

Wedding Ring Photo idea

Valentine’s Day is approximately 3 weeks away.  Romance is in the air, and it’s certainly on the shelves at every. single. retailer.   It’s contagious, watch out!  I’m dropping subtle hints around the house (my 8 year has the memory of an elephant, and he’s great at getting exactly what I ask for lol!)  I’m […]

Socks vs. Boots

how to wear socks with boots featured image

Have you ever seen something so many times that you eventually found you like it (like Taylor Swift songs?)  I saw this pic on pinterest, then this pic on joiegirlblog (I saw this outfit in person, it was super adorable!) then Meg blogged about it here, and then I saw this pin.  Socks with booties?  […]

Trend: Fringe

5 Tips to help you incorporate any trend into your wardrobe!

A few months ago, a friend sent a text admitting to being tempted by a fringe covered handbag. <gasp>  Just kidding!  With the rise of trendy music festival Coachella, the tail-end of the popular Roaring Twenties a la The Great Gatsby and Sean Kelly’s stunning fringe masterpieces on Project Runway, fringe is in!  Don’t worry […]

Breakfast in Bed

Breakfast in bed

When I think of luxury (thank you very much Wayfair.com) I think of warm, cozy beds, and lazily lying in them while the sun slowly filters in through the curtains.  Maybe my five year-old joins us for morning snuggles; maybe my eight year-old will try to join us as well.  Then fighting will ensue and […]

The Greatest Gift

Blues and greens

The Greatest Gift ever given was Jesus.  I just had to say that out loud, I guess (’tis the season and all that jazz.)   But all religious differences aside, let’s talk about the greatest gift you’ve ever given (or received.)  We know it’s the season for gift-giving (and let’s face it – receiving), gift-guides […]

1 Red Dress 5 Ways

One red holiday dress five ways square

I love being able to shop my own closet (code for not-buy-anything-new-because-I-have-no-more-room.)  I bought this red satin dress from H&M last holiday season for under $20 (did you?!)  You can’t wear a red satin dress too often without people realizing you have been wearing the same thing…..it sorta stands out.   While it’s always flattering […]

Gift Guide: for Her

Ribbons or wrapping paper?

I’m still in shock at how quickly time flies.  I hate to be cliché, but seriously – bat an eyelash and bam! your children are grown. Or Christmas is only two weeks away.  I’m stockpiling gifts in my bedroom, in the basement, in any empty space I have left to hide gifts before the big […]

This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me by Sweetworks. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic. As much as I love styling for holiday parties, I have to admit that decorating around the home has – in recent years – become much more fun.  Sure, sugar-crashes […]
