Post-Holiday Blues

We're really missing the sparkly lights of the Christmas tree in the morning over here...anyone else? January is just such a blah month around here, but I've been keeping myself distracted prepping for Zoey's 2nd (wtf...how?!) birthday & Valentine's Day... any excuse to decorate, am I right?  I added a little extra sparkle to this otherwise basic outfit & actually wore a similar version on Christmas Day in Iowa (I had to swap the flats for boots though, it was way too cold).  These earrings are the perfect addition to this outfit, just the right amount of over-the-top in my book.  The hunt for sparkly extras around the holidays is my favorite distraction...

Thirty Two

I recently turned thirty two & I'm still sorta in shock over that number....wasn't I just turning 21 like last year?!  I love birthdays & aging doesn't bother me, it just seems so crazy to say that I'm in my thirties.  My birthday is the day after Christmas, which is always an interesting time of the year for me.  I'm able to reflect on the entire year & this year, I felt more 'me' than I ever really have before.  I realized how grateful I am for everything that happened in year 31, both the good & the bad.  There was a crazy amount of tears, new friendships made & old ones lost, more worrying than I care to admit, & so much effort put into my new role as 'mom of two'.  I've found this new found stress & the pressures of motherhood perfection are best handled with sweat sessions & libations with the Mr., which is exactly how we spent my birthday night out :)

End Of An Era

It’s the end of an era, specifically the blonde era for me. It’s been a great two years spent as a blonde, but the upkeep was just too much for this busy mama. Also, my hairdresser lives in Iowa so there’s that to consider as well. This is the last post I have with blonde hair & I couldn’t think of a better way to end 2017 than with a change of scenery. Back to today’s outfit...

Floral Sock Booties

I found a few more outfits shot when I was a blondie.  It feels nice to be back to brunette, even if we're doing a slow transition to achieve the actual look I'm after (that's what two years of bleach blonde will do for ya).  Any way, this outfit is so me...a quick & easy outfit paired with a kick a** pair of booties.  These jeans have quickly become a favorite of mine, mostly because they fit perfectly over ankle booties without me having to roll or cut them.  Thanks again to Zara for creating the perfect knitwear each & every season...
