    The Key to the Tardis | Outfit

    I have been trying not to repeat any items in my outfits this month, but I finally broke down to re-wear my Tardis skirt (see the first styling here) and this key blouse (styled just a few days ago here) because my husband wore his Dalek bow tie to church and I had to wear Doctor Who. HAD to. Plus, I am getting to the things in my closet that this all dress/skirt and blog daily experiment has made me realize: I don’t like, I can’t fit, or I just don’t reach for that often. I’m inspired to make a few more cute skirts from the stockpile of fabric I…

    My Workspace | Home

    Today I thought it might be fun to try another indoor shoot and share my new workspace with you all! We have a really small house, so this little desk is shoved into the corner beside our bookcase, while my husband also has a desk on the other side of the living room. In between is the TV stand, a papasan chair, the couch, a blanket chest that doubles as our coffee table, and a whole lotta kid toys. The rest of the room isn’t quite decorated how I would like it, but at least my desk space looks pretty! This desk belonged to my grandma (the one whose birthday…

    Earth Day Style with Schoola! | Mom+Daughter Outfits

    This post is in collaboration with Schoola. I was sent clothing items in return for talking about their site and mission. All opinions and words are my own! Today is Earth Day, and I’m excited to share something a little bit more special with you all! You know that I am at heart a pretty thrifty shopper. When I’m asked what my favorite brands and stores are, I generally answer with “the vintage ones” and “Goodwill.” So when I was contacted by Schoola to see if I’d like to do an Earth Day post in collaboration with them, I was intrigued! I have heard of Schoola here and there just…

    Key Print Blouse | Outfit

    This week I have been seriously considering chopping off my hair. I know I don’t want to deep down, but there’s nothing like tangled, patchily colored, generally unruly bad hair days to make you just want to get rid of it all. But the girls over in the Modcloth BST chat group convinced me not to chop it, and made me realize that on the whole, I much prefer long hair to short. When I’ve got short hair, I’m always wishing it were long. When I have long hair, I just have moments like this week where I want to chop it. I’m going to get a trim for sure,…

    Early Summer | Outfit

    Well, my blog-every-day and wear-a-dress-or-skirt-every-day roll ended real fast at the appearance of a very emotional event — for Evie, anyway. Teething hit my sunshine baby hard and sudden. After the relatively mild entrance of three teeth, her gums decided to put up a fight and we’ve so far had three solid days of nonstop drool, crying, mild fever, and very, very swollen gums. It looks to me like she’s getting about five teeth at once; not only is her second upper front tooth struggling to appear, but at least four other spots in her gums are swelling. No wonder she’s refused to let me put her down for more…
