Does anyone else have to look up how to spell Presidents’ Day every year? As you probably know, President’s Day started out as Washington’s birthday, but nowadays most of us consider it a celebration of both Washington and Lincoln’s birthdays. At some point it was officially expanded to include all presidents, and yet there is still no official consensus on where to place the apostrophe or if it even needs one at all. I’m persnickety about my grammar and punctuation so I

Oh, yes. You heard that right. The Nordstrom Winter Sale starts TODAY! This is when all the stores start clearing out all their fall and winter stock so they can make room for spring, and that means sales and deals galore! If you’re one to buy ahead for the next season, this is a great time to get some good deals on winter clothes, shoes, and accessories. I’ll warn you, things to fast during these sales. If you’re
I mentioned the other day how I’m seeing the perforated trend everywhere right now. It’s been around for a while in clothing and handbags, but suddenly it seems to be all the rage with shoes, particularly perforated booties. It’s really quite clever because this is going to take booties right into spring and summer. The laser cut detail provides some ventilation and makes them more appropriate for warmer weather, plus the texture adds a fun detail to any outfit. Here
Good morning, friends! Did you have a nice Valentine’s Day yesterday? It was fun seeing everyone’s pictures on Facebook and Instagram. I spent the evening in an elementary school gymnasium watching my daughter play basketball, and of course I never got around to making a cake. I did pick up some chocolates for the kids, and they were happy with that. Today’s outfit is pretty basic, but then basic is my jam. LOL! I’m calling this a late winter date night
Hello and Happy Valentine’s Day! 💗 I thought today would be a good day to share my February Favorites. I started doing this last month; it’s a monthly feature where I share my new favorite finds along with some older tried-and-true products that I’m particularly enjoying at the moment. Let’s dive right in! #1. Vince Camuto Kensa Peep Toe Booties // I picked these up when I was at the mall on Saturday. I’m so excited for spring, but it will
Hello, friends! Happy Valentine’s Day Eve! I figured this is a perfect day to talk about how to style a red blazer. As y’all know, I don’t wear a lot of blazers, but when I saw this one on the LOFT website, I knew it had to be mine. I love the sleek collarless style of this blazer, and the back peplum panel is so flattering. To keep the look a little edgy and to suit my casual lifestyle, I paired
Good morning! I’m getting this post up early so we can go take some outfit pictures. I’m dreading it because it is soooo cold. Fortunately it’s going to warm up a little bit this afternoon. It’s supposed to get into the 40s, which will be a welcome reprieve from the low 30s of the last few days. My husband and I have our Valentine’s Day dinner date tonight, and I have no idea what I’ll wear, but I’m probably going to
