My Must-Have Winter Accessories!
I'm trying something new today. I often sneak peak and share many of my fashion favorites on Instagram. Well...today I'm sharing my must-have winter accessories to break up the doldrums.
How do you beat the winter blahs? Click below to access any of my Insta images and you'll receive direct links to the items or similar ones at best.
Let me know what you guys think and if this is helpful! Cheers, we made it through Monday!
If I had to wear one outfit over and over again - this would be it. I'm obsessed with these budget friendly denim shorts; once you see the price you'll want some, too! Dressing them a zillion different ways has never been my problem either. From muscle tees to OTS tops to blazers as pictured above...I think you can create a new outfit with a simple swap of accessories.
Apparently when you purge your closet you can actually see all the items you have in it. Novel, right? As much as I used to be a trend follower, you'd be surprised how basic I've really become. Ridiculously basic. Perhaps a basic bitch. <wink, wink>
So here we are. Day 3 of me trying to complete a singular blog post this week and it's 9:20pm on Wednesday night. I am a writer by trade so you can imagine how incredibly unnerving this is for me. I used to crank out five posts a week with ease. And now...I am lucky if I manage two a week. Why? Well...
It's hard to beat a LWD for summer. It's cool, feminine and crisp even on the days when you feel like you're melting. Melting is in full effect in these parts but I'm not mad at it because that means double the popsicles!
Enter summer salads, popsicle dates and Sundays spent in the yard. Yes, we've officially ended summer and I couldn't be happier. Schedules have loosened up just a bit and I am finding it nice to be able to pick up the girlies after camp and see their tired, happy faces.
Yesterday marked the first official day of summer, for me at least. The kids finished school and we are in no schedule-land for one full week. Then it's summer camp-ville! I am seriously looking forward to not packing lunches for awhile and not rushing out the door. It's the little things.
T-minus two days before the big 4-0 and our long awaited trip to New Orleans. I'd like to pretend I've not a care in the world but the truth of the matter is that I have a ten mile long list of items to check off that fluctuate between work, groceries, manicures and most importantly, my littles!
You can tell I am slowly becoming acclamated to Spring...splashes of pink, more pattern play...it's happening. And like every year, there are so many pieces I want RIGHT NOW but I am trying to reign it in and be realistic. Do we really need all this excess? The answer is no but it sure is fun to look and honestly, purging a few pieces in exchange for splurging on one great closet staple is never a bad idea.
I am digging these flared pants in a major way. Not only are they completely slimming but the color is so rich and saturated. Kind of unexpected, too!
I am on the countdown for my birthday getaway and I couldn't be more excited. Next stop: New Orleans! I've never been but I am ready for all the amazing food, architecture and color. I know this will be not only good for the soul but also a great opportunity to spend QT with the hubs. The last time we went away was about three years ago! Everyone tells me that that is an insane timeline but hey, life gets in the way. So yes, this is long overdue.
