The Packing Process

I'm one of those people that has to pack a week in advance in order to ensure I have everything I need while away.  We are in the Midwest to celebrate Thanksgiving until next Monday, so packing was a little easier than normal: sweaters, layers, & boots will be what I'm wearing most of the week...

Case of the Mondays

I've got a bad case of 'the Mondays' today, especially since there's a nice layer of snow covering the ground & leaving my warm bed was the last thing I wanted to do.  Layers have become a necessity, but I'm loving the opportunity for wearing things a little differently...

Photo Friday

It's been one of those weeks where it seems like there is never enough time in the day to get everything on my to-do lists checked off.  Although I've been done Christmas shopping, I always seem to find all the sparkly extras that hit the stores this time of the year irresistible...meaning I have all these last minute projects to finish before we head to Iowa next week.  Here's a few photos from my week, complete with a few new arrivals...

Cover Up!

Lingerie-style dresses typically saved for the confines of the bedroom are now making themselves seen during daylight hours.  I'm just saddened that mother nature forced me to bundle up...

Inspiration: A Touch of Black Lace

Who could predict that wearing a seductive (hovering on the line of inappropriate), lace-trimmed dress during daylight hours would ever be a fashion trend?  The whole pajama trend took off a few seasons back, making the leap for lingerie dresses a possibility.  Style your lingerie-style dress with a wide brimmed hat, motorcycle boots, & an over-sized jacket, extra points for leather...

Easy Does It

After spending a majority of Saturday morning sorting through the storage area above our garage, I needed something easy to toss on & head for a late lunch, a few pints, & some buzztime trivia.  A blazer & ankle boots are one of my go-to's when it comes to getting ready in a hurry...

Photo Friday: Reason to Celebrate

This week went by so quickly, which means you won't find me complaining (bring on Football Sunday).  I welcomed a few new arrivals, most importantly being my first 'big girl' camera, as well as celebrated 4 years of wedded bliss with the manpanion yesterday...

Soul Mates

Some things are just made for each other, like pairing the bow in my hair to the ones on my heels.  While we're on the topic of soul mates, happy 4th anniversary to the man of my dreams today...
