    Everlane Jeans & Tee Sale

    Starting today, Everlane has has an anti-inflation sale, which includes some of my staple items from their line. I’ve noticed that Everlane prices have continued to increase over the last couple of years, so that many of the basics I have shared and linked to over the years are now quite a bit more expensive. In today’s sale, you’ll get OG prices on denim and tees. These are closet essentials that are well-made and form the foundation of my wardrobe for multiple seasons. If you have a gap in your wardrobe, it’s worth ordering some new denim and tees for fall at a lower price. (The sale ends at midnight…

    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.…

    10 Fun Summer Things

    We’re in the middle of a Midwest heat wave, with a sprinkler slowly oscillating in our yard every morning and a daily reviving of parched blue hydrangeas. The kids and I have spent most of our days at the pool, where they can now spend hours at a time (and carry their own towels!) – a different season from the toddler and baby years, for sure. I try to avoid turning on our oven at all costs to keep our house cool, and a top priority has been making sure we are all well-stocked with fresh library books for summer reading. In the spirit of lazy summer days, I wanted…

    5 Ways to Make Your Closet More “You”

    Recently, I’ve been doing a little spring cleaning and decluttering as we change seasons, and I realized there are a few subtle shifts I’ve made in my closet to make it feel more “me.” Clothes are one way we can choose to express ourselves and that can be really fun and freeing. However, I think we have all had days when we ended up wearing an outfit that just felt off. While going about the day, the discomfort of wearing something that didn’t fit or feel good can be draining. I know I have tried out more than a few trends that ended up wearing me – instead of the…

    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…
