Things I Like

March 29, 2017

I was struggling to brainstorm a blog post idea for today when it hit me: blogs are meant for you to share and post about the things you like. So here is a list of things I like :)


Chambray Joggers

March 27, 2017

These pants are everything. You may remember that I also have them in a floral pattern (as seen here #throwback) and they're honestly the best because they're basically pajamas in a form that's acceptable to wear in public. The original floral pair is from J. Crew and when I saw that J. Crew Factory came out with the same pair in a bunch of colors I jumped at the chance to add more to my closet! They do run big though, I went down two sizes. 

Tips for Planning a Long Distance Wedding

March 24, 2017

Finally Friday! This week was absolutely nuts for me. I was playing a lot of catch up after being out for part of last week and felt like I was always a little bit behind. There's lots of wedding stuff going on around here this week which got me thinking about planning a long distance wedding. I'm obviously only halfway through the process and by no means an expert but I wanted to share what's been working for me so far!

Pictures from my bridal shower + what I wore

March 22, 2017

Can't believe I haven't posted in a week! I'm transitioning into a new role at work which has me stressed out and then we went home to Minnesota last weekend for tons of wedding planning so I decided to let myself off the hook when it came to the blog. I never want it to feel forced so I let myself not feel guilty for blowing off last week's posts. Sometimes you've just got to give yourself a break! 

Keep reading to see details on what I wore to my first bridal shower and pictures from the day!

Botanical Dress

March 13, 2017

It was in the 70's the whole weekend here so I donned bare legs and sandals and I'm not one bit mad about it! I'm really loving this dress but am so sad to say that it sold out before I could get photos posted :( luckily there are a ton of similar options out there and I've linked a bunch in the widget below!

Blue Bows

March 10, 2017

Seriously cannot get over the bow on this top, it's too cute! I knew I needed it the moment I laid eyes on that blue bow (although it comes in two other colors!). It's so perfect for spring and summer. Speaking of which, it was 70 degrees here yesterday, so we're on our way! 


Spring/Summer Wedding Guest Dresses

March 8, 2017

It's that time of year again: wedding season! If you're anything like me you're starting to think about what you should wear to those summer weddings on your calendar. One of my best friends is getting married in June and I just started browsing around for dresses and found so many good options that I had to share! 


Srawberry Stripes

March 6, 2017

I was browsing around in J. Crew Factory and saw this adorable striped strawberry t-shirt and just couldn't resist. I had seen it online and passed it over but it was too adorable in person! It's cute details like this that allow me to justify buying multiple striped items ;) Be sure to read all the way to the bottom of the post to see why Mark thinks I shouldn't be allowed to wear this t-shirt­čśé


Recent Reads Vol. 9

March 3, 2017

It's been five months since my last recent reads post so this is waaay overdue! Unfortunately I haven't read a ton of books (only six) since my last edition, but there were some good ones in there that I'm excited to share! It wasn't that I wasn't reading as much, just not as quickly. I read a couple of books that were slow going for me and took much longer than normal to get through. This roundup features some slightly different content from my usual reading material like self-help books and biographies­čś▒. See my picks below the jump (they're all Louie approved)!

My "Cool" Shoes

March 1, 2017

I call these my "cool" shoes because I feel quite cool when I wear them, and that's not a word I use to describe myself very often! Gotta love when your accessories elevate your status ;)
