Charleston Shopping Haul

forgive me… wallet. i went a little crazy in Charleston, South Carolina shopping. I couldn’t help it though. the shops were AMAZING. i’m no minimalist. admittedly so. my first question when i’m out in the middle of nowhere is…where do these people shop!? there were so many wonderful things about Charleston and i’ll do one […]

best baby shops

having a baby means many many sleepless nights. between feedings, changing and then pumping you have a big of time on your hands around 3am (especially if you have the hands free pumping bra – a true revolution). i have a new(er) bad habit now of ordering stuff at 3am and completely forgetting about it. […]

my favorite non maternity sources

let me just start out by saying…maternity clothes are butt ugly. i do not want to wear a shirt that says “i swallowed the watermelon seed” or any stupid crap like that. which seems to pop up every time i google “cute maternity clothes”. seriously does everything have to be so kitschy? i feel like […]

weekend recap road trip

it was so much fun going on a little road trip this weekend with my mom and sister. it was good to just get away and have a day of no distractions and just girl time. we literally shopped till we dropped. i’m not even kidding we were basically crawling back to the car sunday […]

mid week florals

i’m feeling the time crunch friends. it’s so hard to get stuff done at the end of the day when you come home and it’s dark at 5:00 and all you want to do is eat noodles and watch tv. but you can’t eat noodles because that is not the best dinner choice for you […]

black and gold party top

i love going on trip that are strictly vacation. when i’m traveling for work it’s meh what ever i have already hanging in my closet but when it’s a real vacation i love going and picking out just a few new things to mix in while i’m gone. i bought these jeans from anthro when […]

Anthro Midi Birthday Skirt

each year i treat myself to a little (or a lot) of pretty. Since i no longer get a first day of school outfit i think it is only fair that i get a birthday outfit. (not to be confused with a birthday suit). last year i went a little tulle skirt crazy with a […]

being 30

well i woke up this morning to a new decade. my third one to be exact. 3rd decade for some reason sounds better than 30 to me. i have never been one of those people that loses their minds over getting older. except for that one time on my 21st birthday after a night out […]

kate spade plaid

can we talk about this kate spade plaid outfit? on the one actual fall day so far this year (at least it feels like that) i got to bust out my new fall get up. it’s supposed to be 70 degrees again today on the first day of november! usually there is at least one […]

fall wardrobe update

ok it’s that time of the year when the weather has officially changed and i’m ready to add a few new pieces to my wardrobe. key word: few, not piles just a few. i have been way obsessed with all of the luxe and glam textures and patterns i’ve been seeing “about town”. thank God […]

A really good dress experience

let me just start off by saying that i’ve really really really tried to define my style this past season and i just have too many different tastes to be limited. one minute i think i’m only into really neutral calming tones and then the next i’m at kate spade splurging on a taffeta dress […]

watch me go

it’s been a while since i blogged an outfit post! but i couldn’t not post this we’ll call it a summer/fall transitional look. i’m obsessed with plaid and i feel like fall especially lets me wear as many plaid patterns as humanly possible. don’t be fooled though, this shirt is not flannel it’s actually linen!
