Taking a Step Back

You may have noticed it’s been a bit quiet around here and I kind of dropped off without saying much about it. And honestly, that’s because I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to. Taking a blog break has sounded pretty appealing the past few months, but for whatever reason, I couldn’t bring myself to actually…


Summer 10×10: A Full Recap

Here is a look back at the 10 looks I created from my 10 item mini capsule.

Summer 10×10: The First Few Looks

Well, I made it 48 hours into the Summer 10×10 Style Challenge before I had to make a swap. The 10 day forecast shows exactly zero days less than 92 degrees, so I decided the denim crops were a no-go. I had included them with hopes of adding some variety to the looks, but I…

Mom Life: Grocery Store Cupcake ‘Hack’

Many of you may have seen on Instagram that Brynn just turned one! I’ve been spending most of the past week reminiscing about being pregnant and meeting her for the first time (here is her birth story and some of her first pictures). Am I think only one who gets sentimental and teary every year during…
