stripe tee with military jacket and distressed jeans with booties

It is Monday already?  We had a great and busy weekend - you can see pictures here.

This outfit is a staple when out running errands.  I'm wearing my favorite tee (size small) and I own 2 more colors (because when you love something you buy it in several colors right?), this pair of jeans has also been a favorite since I bought them this summer.  They are super comfy and a great buy!  And these booties?  They are the bomb!  The bomb booties - ha right?   Again, super cute, super comfortable.  I wear them A LOT!  They are the right size heel and I'm wearing my usual size 7.  Since the fall starts the layering affect, a military jacket is ideal for this weather.

bell sleeve sweater with black skinny jeans and leopard sandals

This is a date night look I shared on Friday.  This sweater is so soft and I'm crazy about the detailed tie bell sleeves.  I love pieces that can function as dress up or dress down.  I can picture this with distressed jeans, booties and a hat!

Read more about my date night look here.

We had an absolutely beautiful day yesterday and spent a lot of time outside.  We ate at one of our favorite spots on the lake in North Park and then went for a hike.  I also started working on a new project for the house.  It might be more of an undertaking than I wanted!  But I'm super excited about it and I'll keep you posted.  You can stay tuned to my Instastories too :) 

Have a beautiful Sunday!

Date Night

Date Night


tie bell sleeve sweater with black skinny jeans and leopard print

Hooray is Friyay!  I was thinking to myself yesterday that the weeks since school has started have just flown by.  I can't believe it's the middle of October (well basically).  In just 1 week we will have officially been in our home 1 year.  That year feels like a blink and an eternity rolled into one.  Do you ever feel that way?  Sometimes I feel like I want time to stand still and sometimes I want to hurry it up - get to the good stuff, Thanksgiving & Christmas.  I read a really great devotion this week (here) that talked about these things.  Basically the author says that what if God created us this way...  It's an amazing read and I encourage you to check it out.  

I'm loving this sweater and the tie, bell sleeve details.  It's super soft and can be worn dressed up or dressed down.  I think it would be beautiful with some vegan leather leggings!  I really reserve heels for date nights.  I have bad feet (along with a bad back and knees - basically I'm falling apart! haha), so wearing heels daily is not an option.  These leopard mules would also be super cute.  And I have to talk about these earrings... beautifully made, NOT heavy and under $13!

What to Wear Now & Later


ruffled shirt with faux fur vest, skinny jeans and booties

I don't know about you, but the in-between seasons (fall & spring) are the hardest to dress for! 

It seems these days that the weather is going crazy doesn't it?  One day its in the 50s and a few days later it's 70+ degrees!?  Well the dressing is all about the layering and today I'm bringing you a really fun layered, ruffled, fur look!   The temperatures are starting to cool off here.  I'm anxious to wear my furs and boots!  What are you looking forward to this fall?

handmade items from Etsy

I've been a long-time fan of Etsy and all the amazing handmade pieces (and vintage) you find there.  My home is very ecletic, some chic glam, some farmhouse fun.  It's a mix of classic pieces like these pendants and recently purchased chairs, but I love bringing in handmade, vintage pieces as well.  I also love supporting these amazing artists.  These tassels are one of my all-time favorites and when I learned the shop owner lived just outside Philadelphia (where we used to live), it was awesome!  Look at this amazing clutch :). Her pieces are so completely beautiful!  So today I'm sharing some of my favorite pieces and shops from Etsy!

Ruffles


olive sweater with ruffles, skinny jeans and lace up sandals

Ruffles, ruffles everywhere right?  I. Love. IT!  There are so many sweaters & tops out there with the cutest ruffles.  As woman over 40 (throat clearing...) haha, I am careful though on the type of ruffle top or sweater to purchase.  Some can look a little too young.  But this sweater from J.Crew is a favorite!  I've seriously been contemplating on purchasing it also in the pink - eek?!  Aaaand it's currently on sale with code GOSHOP.

It's sweater weather!  These are all beautiful pieces I curated just for you!



It has been a busy few weeks.  I've been working really hard on projects for our house, the twins 9th birthday (2 parties) and a super fun girls party with Beautycounter and Mack & Mario.  It was a fun and exciting month, but honestly I'm glad to have some down time.  This week I'll be working on some more house projects.  Our house was in need of some additional seating (mobile seating).  I wanted some folding chairs that we could just pull out when we have company over.  I searched and searched to find the right look but nothing seemed to fit with our house (and my budget).  So I found these folding chairs on Amazon.  I used Annie Sloan paint to "vintafy it".  I wanted to make it feel vintage and distressed.  Although I had an idea what I wanted the chairs to look like, actually doing it is another story.  So I tried my painting technique on one chair, below.

vintage folding chairs

I'm happy with the final piece, but need to paint 3 more chairs!  I'll definitely be posting this chair again and the process I used.  It was easy, but there are several steps to it.  So this week I'll be working on the other 3 chairs.  Wednesday I'm taking a trip to central PA with my Dad.  He's a developer and wants me to take a look at a barn and 1800's house!  Super excited to see what I can salvage from both :)
