Happy Monday, friends! I hope you enjoyed your weekend. Ours was full but fun. My son’s birthday party yesterday was really nice. We always enjoy hanging out with family, and it was good to catch up with everyone. Today is his actual birthday, so I officially have a 17-year-old. One more year, and he can vote.

After all, I think the one thing we can all agree on this morning is that life is too short to be frumpy. And do I have a treat for you! I try to reserve the phrase “must-have” for the times when I truly mean it, and this is one of those times. I am dubbing
Good morning! Or is it afternoon? I had to shoot some outfits this morning, and I didn’t have this post prepped ahead of time as I often do, so it’s coming to you later than usual.

(To make sure I show up in your Instagram feed, be sure
Good morning, friends! TGIF! Today I’m partnering with Nordstrom to share another way to wear white jeans for fall. I wore a variation of this outfit to church a few weeks ago, and I got several compliments. I told my husband I wanted to go somewhere pretty to shoot this look, and he suggested this cool nature preserve. We actually photographed another outfit there last fall. It is so pretty, although I felt ridic tromping around in 3-inch heeled over-the-knee
Well, hello there. Welcome back! I’m on a roll with the outfits lately. Today I’m styling a black and white striped dress outfit for fall — two of them, actually! I saw this black and white striped shift dress at Old Navy and immediately began thinking of all the fun ways to style it. It’s such a versatile piece. First I paired it with black suede ankle boots and then with bright pink suede flats. It was 75º
