A Simplified Closet

Posted on Jun 20, 2014 in Stylin' | 2 Comments

Currently, my closet it a hot mess. There is a huge pile of clothes on the floor that I believe my son thinks is his personal mountain/play fort. Instead of scaring you with the current state of my closet, I’m showing a few favorite things from my closet I’m wearing over and over. For a […]

Hi friends. This is a sneak peek of the guest post I’m doing over at Hanna’s Places today. Head on over to the post to see more photos and a little story about a well-loved piece of my wardrobe, my plaid blanket coat. Hanna has a great series called Everlasting Apparel where she has different […]

Style by Sunday No 6: A Sentimental Skirt

My grandmother was a tiny firecracker. She wasn’t even five feet tall, but her sass and wit made her larger than life. She was fierce, funny and a role model of mine growing up. She was an orphan who grew up to go to a Harvard-affiliated hospital for nursing, served in World War II, won […]

I’m a creature of comfort. As much as I love dresses and skirts, I think I feel most myself in jeans and a casual t-shirt. I’ve been trying to slowly weed out some of my old and/or embarrassing (I have one of a Cardinal dunking a basketball???) t-shirts for some that have some style to […]

This year, June Gloom has apparently decided to trade places with Missouri’s typical Blazing August. Around here, it feels like a weird Spring-Fall hybrid with all the torrential downpours we’ve been experiencing. Graphic black and white patterns are my way of spicing up these grey days (I know, I’m wild). Let’s talk about these shoes. […]
