Hey there, friends, and happy Friday! Thank you so much for all your feedback and enthusiasm over our Kitchen renovation this week…your excitement and confidence is fueling me to keep pushing forward to create a space perfect for us. Julia nailed it when she commented, “I’d rather be someone’s shot of whiskey, than everyone’s cup of tea!” And that girl has mad style and taste, so I think I’ll adopt her motto!
Between work and home life, this week has been full of paint swatches, tile orders, home inspections, lost title policies, and an endless list of house loose-ends. I’m ready to take a break from all that, and have a little fun with fashion.
I haven’t given my outfit selection much attention this month (and never mind that my hair’s been in a ponytail for three straight weeks), so I thought I’d create a few using items in my closet, in hopes of kick-starting my desire.
I can’t get enough fair isle, so I jumped at this sweater dress when it was marked down 50%. It’s super cute, but a tad long on me (I’m just under 5’4″). I always get asked about my crossbody bag when we travel…I’ve had mine for ages, but this one is perfection, and the price can’t be beat.
I’ve been wearing my puffer vests non-stop with jeans (as evidenced in my Sugarplum Style posts), but love the idea of pairing it with a casual dress and boots, too.
One of my favorite things about Winter style, is how a structured coat can transform even the most basic and casual outfit. My favorite is a swing shape with a good collar…it’s both flattering and fun. These are such classic pieces that can elevate any outfit…and all of them are on super sale! Well, except the leopard heels, but I couldn’t deny them.
It may be intervention time…my kitten cardi-wrap count now stands at three. I started with the striped one (see the outfit here), and loved it with all my heart, so decided to add a solid. But the problem is, choosing a color is like trying to pick a favorite kid…it’s virtually impossible
most days. If you’re new around here, the cardi-wrap gets it’s nickname because it feels like being snuggled by kittens. Declawed kittens. Serious.
Do you have a kitten-cardi yet?! You know you’re going to cave and get one eventually…2500 people can’t be wrong…so you might as well do yourself a favor, and cave while it’s still cold out. If you wait to give in to it’s snuggly power in March, you’ll only be kicking yourself for lost time you could have been wearing it. Just sayin.’
Okay, my fashion break is over…back to the construction zone. Follow me on InstaGram and Facebook if you want to see reno updates. And wish us luck…there may or may not be a closing in our future this afternoon. But I’m not allowed to speak of it yet, for fear of The Jinx. Happy weekend, lovebugs!
