Work From Home

Working from home (aka taking care of Zo, two dogs, & a majority of the housework) has proved to be more 'work' than actually going to work.  However, I wouldn't trade this year off for anything…these are the moments you never get back.  My work attire has changed, meaning there are days I don't change out of my pjs.  It makes sense to buy some cute ones then, right?

A classic blue button-up, just a tad oversized… as timeless as you can get with a garment.  Mama style has been as easy as possible, mostly because I'm left changing half way through the day any way.  Mostly, these earrings have been my go-to piece for the summer…such a fun, seasonally-appropriate way to add some sparkle without being too overdone in this heat.

Photo Friday: Iowa in June

Photos from our road trip back to Iowa in June.  We went specifically to watch one of favorites wed the love of her life & I'm so happy I got to witness it.  Most of my friends from high schools were there with their husbands, new babies, or babies on the way…it literally brought tears to my eyes to have us all together, even though life has dispersed us all over the country (and out of it for a few of us).  Anyway, big plans this weekend…I'm updating my sale section on ebay with A TON of designer goodies...

Panera on the go, especially when the ladies are confined to the back seat...
New goodies (Free People, F21)
My great aunt Joanne made the cake, so happy I was able to taste it again :)
Small pizzeria that has the best taco pizza (Zoey & the Mr.'s first time there)
Above mentioned taco pizza :)
New mat for the patio door, made out of recycled flip-flops
New shoes from Lulu's

Happy Weekend!

Clover Field

This is the perfect piece for transitioning seasons.  I bought the perfect pair of cognac over-the-knee boots at the end of last season that I cannot wait to pair with this.  Three pieces of this outfit were posted about yesterday & have already been combined endlessly.  Hoping once this humidity takes a hike, I can show you how...

Into It

Still not sure why it took me so long to get into the Free People brand, but better late than never. I've sorta become obsessed...every piece fits perfectly & goes together effortlessly. It makes wearing the brand worth it, especially as a new mama. These booties were the perfect lookalikes, scored for a fraction of the price from good 'ol F21 & pair with all this new loot...

How to Fake a Tan...

How to fake a tan lesson 1: Wear shades of white lighter than your skin.  I thought by having the summer 'off' I would be a bronzed beauty.  Def not the case with a little one that has to be kept in the shade.  Oh well, I've embraced my lack of a tan & as we approach the end of summer, have dealt with the fact that it just isn't happening this year...

That 70's Style

This neck scarf totally emits 70's vibes, somewhat bordering on flight attendant-chic.  I'm super into accessories this year, that little extra touch to add to an outfit that makes it all cohesive.  Also, these flats…scored for $7!

Beer Weather

This time in Iowa has been flying by…like crazy fast.  Today's post is strictly dedicated to these beauty summer days that we've deemed 'beer weather' at our house.  How appropriate, as I'm celebrating my move to Canada 8 years ago today & Zoey's first swim in the neighbor's pool with an ice cold one...

The perfect night on the patio kit… (paddle: crate & barrel, opener: Home Sense)

Flower Child

I shared a sneak-peek of this outfit a few months ago when I was attempting to get this blog back up & running.  I can't get over pink, hoping it stays relevant for awhile longer while I add to my collection.  I wore this on my first Mother's Day out to lunch with the family, but have worn a variation of it about 5x since...
