Summer Stripes & Bows with SheIn


Remember that one post I did not too long ago where I confessed my undying love for all things striped? Yeah, I told you that you would be seeing another striped top momentarily. When I received this striped top from SheIn, I quickly unwrapped it and immediately added it to the collection of blue and white stripes tops in my closet. Let's just say it felt right at home.

Summer Style with SheIn


I've always viewed style as an expression of your personality but if you want to get really granular, you might view it as an expression of your mood, which tends to be much more fluid. Reversely, a good outfit has the power to alter your mood, hopefully for the better. Whoa, getting a little deep there, eh? Let me tone it down by saying something like, "I mean, how could you not be happy wearing an outfit like this?" There. I feel better now.

If you follow our blog, or my Instagram, you know I love edgy looks. In fact, they tend to be my fave but every once in a while I whip out a super girly look and surprise everyone, like I did on this particularly gorgeous, sunny day. Or else, maybe I was just trying to make myself feel better about having to go to the doctor to get my blood drawn–where I was then called 'Barbie', a 'doll' and had about 8 people tell me they loved my shoes, ha!

Struttin' in Stripes & Ripped Jeans


I am pretty positive that stripes are taking over my closet. Black and white, blue and white, pink and white...this girl loves a good stripe. Let's be honest though, this isn't something new for me. I have always had a love for striped pieces, but I've totally taken it up a notch this spring.

Midwest Young & Restless


Young & restless.

Besides being a Kanye West lyric, this t-shirt is actually pretty fitting for me–although, saying I'm young is debatable since I just turned 30 (may my 20s rest in peace). I find myself wanting more and more and down time is just a thing of the past. Stepping outside of my comfort zone and trying new things, reading more, learning more, traveling more, taking on more projects...call me restless, but I just can't help but want to fill my life with all that I can, especially while I'm still young(ish).

Hoosier Proud: At Home in Indiana


Growing up in the Hoosier state you've become accustomed to the inevitable questions of life: What is a Hoosier? Do you like basketball? Listen, this girl does not have a wicked jump shot, nor can I really even describe to you what a Hoosier is (since no one seems to know the exact origin), but one thing's for certain, I'm proud to be a down to earth, Midwestern girl.

Some Sort of Sailor


Off. the. shoulder. tops.

Over the weekend I was told by someone that they hated off-the-shoulder tops and wanted to know if I actually liked them. The kicker? I was wearing one. Good times.

But I, for one, can't get enough of them! Who couldn't like this one from Chicwish with lace and bow ties? I like to think that if my friendly fashion hater had seen this one, she would have changed her mind. Yeah...I think she would.

Denim Jacket Classic


I'd love to say that blogging is easy, but that would be a total lie. You're in a constant race to scour the internet for the perfect makings of a trendy outfit that matches your style, scout a perfect location to shoot photos of that outfit, edit the photos and then throw a post together–all at rapid pace. Sound familiar to anyone? Let's just say, I haven't been in the scrambling mood and our blog has totally suffered for it.
