Dreams and The Everygirl

When The Everygirl asked to do a career profile on me I was in complete shock. I'm pretty sure I asked is what I'm doing (i.e. still trying to figure it out) legitimately considered a career?  I still can't believe it, but I quickly screen shot this image and named the file WOW just in case I woke up.  Since the post went live, it's felt like the biggest hug hearing from girls and women who are going through similar experiences. Some were saying thanks, but truthfully I couldn't have asked for a better support system to help keep me trucking forward.  

I can't wait to tell my future daughter "your mom went from stalking The Everygirl to working for them to being featured. So that means you can accomplish just about anything."

It'll be followed by, "Ok love you. Now roll up your sleeves and go!"


Fall Closet Prep

Fall is the best season to get dressed, but it's also a dangerous one. My wallet's already been shaken up a bit and it's no where near pre-fall weather. So in efforts to keep my spending at bay, I've started to shop my own closet and create looks that I can keep on the back burner for future events. There's the quintessential neutrals and knits but also a fair amount of patterns. Organizing them nicely on a garment rack makes it look and feel like a new wardrobe and gets me pretty excited. Try this at home and let me know which items or trends from your closet are going to get some airplay!

The Dreslyn: In Bloom

Even though we're approaching Labor Day weekend, I can't help but be more committed to wearing white all year long. Especially after seeing The Dreslyn's impeccably styled lookbook for their fall jewelry edit! Love the sharp hair, soft make-up, and minimal gold jewelry.
