    A Week of Summer Outfits

    Happy August! It’s been a whirlwind of school supply shopping, soaking in the last free days of summer, and prepping our house for the kickoff of fall sports. Being back in a routine sounds really good after a very laidback and fun summer break spent with family and friends. As far as outfits go, summer is still my most challenging season to dress for, but I wanted to share a few reliable outfits that I have reached for multiple times. Comfort is always my top priority, especially with my kids and in hot, humid Midwest weather. You can also see outfit posts and favorite finds on my LTK page HERE.…

    9 Spring Dresses for Every Budget

    I’m so looking forward to dressing up for church on Easter Sunday and a celebratory lunch after. I wanted to share a few current styles I think would be perfect for a Sunday gathering and a family photo. In the Midwest, Easter can still be a chilly time of year, so I was shopping with short or long sleeves in mind and a midi length. This combination feels romantic and feminine, just right for spring. …..

    Winter Wardrobe | Snow Boots

    A few months ago, I spent a decent chunk of time researching a wardrobe addition that not only needed to have form, but also function – a new pair of snow boots. In today’s post I wanted to share the pair of boots I ended up ordering (and loving) and how I narrowed down to the right pair for me. Having used these boots during a ski trip and while shoveling and walking our neighborhood in a recent winter storm, I can reliably tell you that these are great boots. To start, I should admit that a year ago, I ordered the wrong pair of boots. They were waterproof but…

    Closet Hero: Ankle Boots

    Winter is near, and nature is beginning to settle in and quiet for the approaching cold. Living in the Midwest with four distinct seasons and the temperature swings that go along with it, I’ve learned the importance of choosing clothes wisely. It’s not enough to just be the right look, the function and materials have to make sense as well. Spend one winter wearing cheap imitation leather boots, feeling the cold breeze right through and the slush seep through the seams, and you’ll quickly switch to finding the best quality winter gear within your budget. With winter’s arrival, I find myself wearing a very cozy uniform most days. A sweater…

    4 Casual Thanksgiving Outfits

    I am so excited for Thanksgiving next week. Are you, too? It’s the kickoff of the holiday season, and we will be able to celebrate with family, eat some good comfort food, and pick out and decorate our Christmas tree. The whole weekend is one of my favorite times of the year. Taking time away from work & school and finding extra ways to relax and play are so important for our family after this challenging year. Also, because I know it is part of the weekend, I just want to say that Black Friday really isn’t a big part of relaxing or playing for me/us. That’s probably not the…

    Ten Neutral Fall Basics

    Yesterday’s walk to school was full of dark, moody clouds and cooler temps in the 60s and 70s. It’s the time to start a transition in my wardrobe from summer basics towards fall. Today I want to share ten items that create a solid foundation for a fall wardrobe. These are the pieces I wear most often, and they are timeless options that won’t go out of style quickly. When dressing for fall, I am often an outfit repeater. I like to wear the same silhouette, like a tee and sweater with jeans or a fleece with leggings, daily. It feels good and requires little fuss. Because fall can fluctuate…
