Top Ten | September

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you’re enjoying the long weekend, and soaking up the extra day with friends and family. We’re taking advantage of the school holiday, and visiting our first college campus with the teenager! It feels like just yesterday he started Middle School, and now we’re talking about SATs and college. #gulp

Fortunately I have a couple more years to get used to the idea of him leaving home #doublegulp, and in the meantime, we’ll enjoy these road trips together!

Today let’s look back at September. It was a busy one with travel, style and a little beauty…and just in case you took an internet hiatus, here are the top posts from last month.

A big ole brain dump of Ramblings, including my trip to NYC with HomeGoods, fave new books and Netflix shows, and the best restocks and sale alerts.

The older I get, the more particular I am about the products I use…and the simpler my makeup routine! But I’m never without these five heavy-hitters!

I’m no beauty expert, but I’ve been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of makeup professionals and glam squads over the years, and picked up some great tips. Including one key trick to taking years off your face!!


It’s no surprise this is my hands-down favorite dress this season…in fact, I already own it in three colors! It’s just so versatile and flattering, and easy to wear for a slew of occasions. Here I styled it for Work and Weekend.


Our Scandinavian Cruise disembarked in Copenhagen, so we took advantage and spent a few days in this candy-colored town before returning home. Let me just say, it was a great decision! This town has charm and color around every corner, here’s our 48-hours in Copenhagen.


Summer has come and gone, but it was full of fun outfits. This post recapped the best of the Summer of Style series…maybe Pin it for next year!


We wrapped our Summer of Style series, then talked about the tricky transition to Fall. You know, when the calendar says Fall, but the weather says Summer. This Five Ways series gives tips and ideas for moving into this new season.


Last month also had another round of Sugarplum Style, and everyone’s favorite, Dressing Room Diaries, featuring tons of new finds, and recent outfits (and Mama Sugarplum!). I also threw in a few Faves Under $50, featuring fun new things I’ve got my eye on.

October is another big one, with a trip to Colorado…plus more Trip Reports, a room reveal, and tons of style inspiration for Fall.

Thank you so much for stopping by when you do…your support and comments mean the world to me! Happy Monday, lovebugs!
