Holiday Balance

If you’ve been a reader here for a few months, you know that I’ve really been working hard at decluttering our overstuffed home and being more careful about keeping only items that we really use/need/love. I would not in a million years claim to be a minimalist, but I’m definitely making huge strides in becoming…

Little Black Jumpsuit

One thing I have really come to appreciate since paring down my wardrobe is comfort. I don’t quite know why I never prioritized how comfortable an item was before, but I know I used to have plenty of clothes that just didn’t feel good to wear. Hemlines I always tugged at, sleeves that felt snug,…

Holiday (and Beyond) Dress

‘Tis the season for all things festive. Delicious food, warm drinks, family gatherings, and holiday dresses. Now, my family doesn’t get overly dressed up for the holidays (stretchy and comfy is the name of our game) and my husband and I don’t go to holiday parties that have a fancier dress code (but I totally…

Fall 10×10: Recap

A few weeks ago, on a Sunday morning, I decided at the last minute to participate in Lee’s Fall Style Bee 10×10 challenge. I’ve done a few of these challenges over the past year, so it’s become easier and easier to select items. I went into my closet and picked eight of my favorite items and committed…

Fall 10×10: Week Two

After a week ‘intermission’ to participate in the dress up days for Homecoming week at school, I’m back in the Fall 10×10 hosted by Lee (from Style Bee). Here’s a look at the 8 items I chose (I’m not counting shoes this round, so I selected fewer items) and the first 5 looks I wore. Look 6…

Fall 10×10: Week One

The first week of a 10×10 Style Challenge always seems the most obvious, the most safe. I always look back and realized I was careful with my outfits in an attempt to not ‘waste’ any looks. The second week seems to be when I stretch out of my comfort zone and find new ways to…
