Dreaming of Fall

Today I got an email reminding me that the Farmstead Corn Maze season is close by!  Yeah, I sign up for spam emails like that.  But only because fall activities are my absolute favorite and I just can’t wait for all the festivities!  And as I am writing this post, there is a massive wind storm- I can almost dream it is blowing in cooler weather to change the leaves to pretty bright colors, but I do believe that is wishful thinking! A few of my favorite Fall things:   Fall  ...

Favorite Catalogs

As a marketer and clothing lover, I find it a lot of fun to check out catalogs.  It’s not only for the purchasing options, but also for the visual layouts and creativeness of the whole effect.  Here are a few of my favorite catalogs to sign up for! 1. Anthropologie: obviously!  But seriously, the layouts feel more like a high fashion/travel magazine mixed together with the best of style. 2. Boden: this British catalog has modest clothes in the brightest and most fun prints and colors.  ...

Timeless Denim: the Levi 501

I recently read “Is This the Beginning of the End for Skinny Jeans?” on The Wall Street Journal and it got me thinking, why do I gravitate towards skinny jeans? I love the slimming effect, and they do tend to feel more like sweatpants because of the stretch. But will they last forever? Are they a timeless article of clothing? Just a few years ago, I remember saying, “I will never own a pair of skinny jeans!” Now they are all I have in my closet. But I’m looking  ...

Summer Flats: D’Orsays

If I have learned anything while working at Anthropologie, it is the importance of killer accessories!  I have seen the cutest of outfits that consist of just a simple jeans and tee combination but the accessories have amped the outfit to be stellar. So lately, I have been really going through my shoe collection and paring down to a capsule of shoes that will not only be comfortable, but will add to my outfit in a way that clothes can’t. And I may be a little late coming to the trend,  ...

New Closet Addition: Sail Away Pullover

  I believe in versatility.  Before I buy something, I have to make up at least 4 outfits in my mind with my new piece- it may seem excessive but I don’t want to fill my closet with pieces I can’t wear together! At the store, I have been passing by this little pullover because I don’t normally buy anything with graphics or lettering since I usually think it’s hard to dress up a graphic. But the more I saw this top (and then felt how soft it was!) I knew it would  ...

MK Nature Center and a New Shirtdress

Happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend. Last week, Chase and I spent an afternoon downtown together- we grabbed lunch at Bleubird and walked around the fish ponds.  Moseying around the MK Nature Center is incredibly relaxing (and totally free!)- for all the local folks, if you have never gone, you should check it out!  There is a path right off of the greenbelt that connects to the Stream Walk- the walk includes an interior pond that is full of massive trout and some of the biggest  ...
