Go Get ‘Em Denim

Hello there! Thanks so much for everyone’s vacation good wishes! I did have a wonderful and restful vacation, so much so that I feel excited about this work filled summer! I won’t bore you with the details, but just know that if you are feeling close to burning out, take a week off, follow these guidelines, and you will come back with no more dark circles, a straighter back, and a recharged battery


Any-who, it’s outfit time. I’ve always wanted to try the all denim look so here it goes!

So here are my tips on pulling off a denim on denim look..

DENIM ON DENIM if you dare

1. Different Shades of Denim 
Make sure that your denim pieces are of a different shade BUT ALSO that the shades mesh well together. 

2. Different Denim Weight
Make sure that your denim pieces vary in fabric weight to balance the look as well as keeping it interesting!

3. Simple Accessories
All denim will already turn heads, so play down the accessories and keep it simple!

Thanks for stopping by! Happy Monday!

Hidden Lake

After 24 years living in my hometown, I had no idea there was a lake down the street from my house! Isn’t that ridiculous? I am pretty ashamed of myself. But better late than never right?

This new discovery was made just in time because this week’s Thrifty Thursday theme is Nautical. Today I felt like ditching the typical blue/white deal and decided to mix in a little orange and of course my Sperry Top-Siders which happens to be pink.

Tangerine and pink? I think it’s a workable combo.
