I stopped into our local LOFT store a couple of weeks ago, and couldn’t stop thinking about this top! The seafoam green color is refreshing for this time of year, and the texture of the top adds great detail! I originally thought to style it with my dark denim skirt, but imagine I’ll wear it with about every other shade of denim, plus black and white. Currently 40% off with code ‘XOXO’.

Hi everyone! Wow, the last 2 weeks flew by – I worked 9 days straight while not feeling the best – always something, right?! Anyway, blogging and getting dressed in general (ha) were not at the top of my to-do list. I have a few days off work finally and felt a little more human today… so, I got dressed! I think every other blogger has worn a variation of this outfit since September, but this leopard sweater felt like comfort food. My sweater is long sold out, but I linked similar options below. My jeans are new – I love the button fly – and they fit TTS. My booties are still on sale and come in a ton of color options! Well worth the investment. Also fit TTS.

I love, love all the bright cheery colors being released in stores! Winter brights (and whites) are always a hot trend. Usually you will see a lot of reds and pinks since Valentines Day is upon us, but honestly there has been an awesome mix lately. I even picked up a few warmer pink and terracota hues at Target yesterday which I’ll share soon – just feels good to have a great mix in my closet. My sweater comes in 6 color options, including a bright pink and yellow color. It is made of a soft cotton material (no wool), but is slightly cropped. I wore it with jeans that are a higher mid rise or high rise and loved the way it looked. My exact scarf is old, but I’ll link similar options below.

Hi friends! This week has been extra crazy on a lot of fronts! Work picked up rapidly with the new year (to the point I’ve never seen it this busy in all of my 15 years in pharmacy – just trying to keep my body above ground ha!). And if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, I posted on stories that we adopted a new pup! We welcomed 3 year old ‘Pippa’ into our home after she retired from Greyhound racing in November. Today was her first full day in our home and we absolutely adore her. She’s become a permanent fixture on our couch, sleeps every second I let her, and is sweet as pie. She’s living up to all of the Greyhound rumors!
That all said, I’m ready to put out a few blog posts this week! Amazon has released a lot of great items recently – I add them to my cart or wish list as soon as I see something I like (so I don’t forget about it), and all of these are currently on my list. Florida spring is right around the corner, and for those of you who live up north, these are affordable spring break finds! I think everything is below $30 and runs TTS according to the brand sizing. They also come in multiple color options!

Say hello to one of the softest sweaters! I haven’t shopped at GAP for awhile and just happened to glance in to see this pretty knit sitting on their front table. I fell in love with all of the color options and honestly had a hard time choosing – the turquoise blue color is gorgeous! I went with the gray since I have a lot of colored options in my closet, but I was pretty partial to the blue color. The yellow was very pretty also! It fits TTS and very comfortable.

I thought I’d kick my first blog post off for the new year featuring the Pantone “color the year” which goes to classic blue! I’m actually pretty fond of this color. Navy blue takes the cake during the summer and early fall months, but really a nice deep blue color is perfect anytime. My exact sweater is old, but I’ll link below my current favorites!
Also – check out these pretty loafers! They have a beautiful metallic thread that’s perfect for winter! And one of my favorite loafers for work. And they match any classic blue sweater perfectly. 🙂

I’m following a style challenge again this month on Instagram – the prompts are using the writer’s favorite flatlays found on Pinterest! I’m so happy she featured a couple of my own flatlays! So, if you follow other bloggers or follow Pinterest, some of my outfits my look a little like copy cats. Just thought I need to put that disclaimer out there ha!

Wishing all of my readers a very Happy New Year! This past year as certainly had more downs then ups for myself personally, and this decade has been certainly full of many life changes as I’m sure we all have gone through. I’m all sorts of ready for the new year and ready to take this life by the horns and make it better than ever! I’ve really started to appreciate the things that truly matter in life, and ready to make some huge life changes. Of course nothing I can mention on social media, 🙂 but you’ll know it when it happens! As far as this little space of mine, it’s not going anywhere. I’m more than ready to bring on spring content for the blog and hope that wherever you are and reading this, that there is some warmer weather and sunshine in your near future!
I also wanted to share my #topnine2019 from Instagram! I guess I shouldn’t give up my flatlay game! 😘
This skirt. Is so ridiculously soft, it hardly feels like wool. It’s like a butter wool (I think it’s a poly/wool blend to be fair haha). Anyway, it’s a beautiful skirt. And I love the mix of yellows and grey that are a change from the dark moody hues and holiday colors. The skirt keeps selling out. I actually purchased it over Black Friday and since I took a little blogger hiatus + the dang thing kept selling out, I didn’t think it was bloggery of me to share. But, it’s now popping back up in various sizes and it’s now on sale + an extra 50% off! So, definitely worth the price. And worth the share. 🙂
I paired it here with a vibrant sweater to show how universal it can be with color, but truly you could style it with any shade of gray or ivory to keep a more neutral look.

Hi guys! If you’ve been following me on the blog for awhile, you know I go MIA on the blog when life changes seem to filter in. In this case, it was another huge work schedule change. Thankfully this time, it’s in a good way – going from 13 hour shifts to multiple 6-8 hour shifts throughout the week. On one hand, I’ll be working more though out the week, but won’t be near as exhausted at the end of the day. I think I’m going to go back to the way blogging used to be for awhile – where I post flatlays and #ootd photos as I take them, and update here in real time (at the same time as Instagram and Facebook). For awhile, I was doing a huge roundup when I had the time, but with the schedule change I’m not going to have a lot of whole free days to work on things. As you could probably see from my wish-list post yesterday, I do have a little spring in my step to dive into new arrivals for spring! While they won’t actually start hitting stores in full til mid-end February, I get excited just to see sweaters in spring colors. 🙂
My first flatlay “back” is featuring this awesome shaker knit sweater. It has a ballet neck (could be worn off shoulder) and is the perfect length to do either a front tuck or wear like normal. The neckline and loose knit give more interest also, and I just love the way it looks. The sweater also comes in olive and black colors.
I also wanted to share the “IT” bootie for fall! I waited and waited to purchase these bad boys (full price they run $150.. ouch.), but when they went on sale I didn’t hesitate. They truly are everything! Reviews suggest sizing up 1/2 size. I went with my normal size since sometimes I need to size down, and I don’t think they fit too small. I would say if you normally are in between your regular size or a size smaller, go with the regular (or vice versa if you sometimes size up ~ go 1/2 size up). And there are ten color options to choose from!
