    Relaxed

    It’s a funny thing being a style blogger; while you generally stick to your own style, and don’t go out of your way to dress in something you’d never wear normally, you also tend to make your “going to blog this” outfits a little… extra. As if everyone who comes to read your blog to see your style won’t actually want to see your style. I realize that I often fall into the trap of thinking each photoshoot has to be better than the last. Each outfit has to be the best outfit, each location has to be the most  beautiful, each post has to be the most exciting one. I think…

    Pink Blush in the Springtime

    Spring has finally started to show its head here in the sleepy little harbor where I live! Although I must admit, I drove around for about 45 minutes trying to convince myself to stop and shoot photos on this sidewalk that runs along the main road through the harbor. It was rush hour, right when most people are out and about getting drinks after work, looking for a place to dine, or generally window-shopping around town. While I am generally used to the curiosity of onlookers when I go out to do outfit photoshoots, I’ve never taken my photos in so blatantly a public place before. But for this gorgeous…

    On Wearing Hats and Colorful Tights

    We Love Colors sent me tights for review; all opinions and thoughts are my own! Some affiliate links may be used in this post; if you click and purchase, I’ll earn a small commission which goes to help support this blog.  While my Irish heritage is likely generations upon generations back, and I am mostly German in truth, I can never quite resist pulling out my best garb in celebration of St. Patrick’s day. For a reason little known to anyone, really, I’ve always been desperately in love with Ireland, its history, and its beauty, and I’ve always wished I were a bit more Irish than I really am. If…

    Polka Dots and Princesses || Karina Dresses

    Karina Dresses sent me a dress for review, and if you click to purchase through my links I may gain a small commission. All thoughts and opinions are my own! The face you see above is the face of a girl whose skirt has just flown up to her face in a public place. But I’ll get to that in a moment. First, let’s talk about how I didn’t think Karina Dresses could get any more perfect, and then they did. Because, oh my goodness, they added pockets! As if these dresses aren’t already winners with their comfort, style, retro influences, 100% made in USA status, and ability to be…

    Pink Blush || Budget Friendly Maternity Clothes

    Pink Blush sent me clothing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are mine! If you’re a pregnant woman, you will know the struggle of finding cute and affordable maternity clothes. You know, the kind that won’t break your budget, but will fit right, look cute, be stylish, and maybe even work post-pregnancy? Yeah, those kind. I often avoid buying clothes actually made for pregnancy because they feel frumpy, or they’re mega expensive, or they won’t be useful when the baby bump is gone. Enter Pink Blush. Not only are they all REALLY cute, with lots of floral and stripes and clothes that could be dressed up or down,…
