Taking Some Time Off…

Hey lovies…so I’ve been thinking lately. I think it is time for me to step back for a bit. This place has been a huge blessing in my life, but lately it has felt more like a burden. I told myself if that was ever the case I would need to step back and reflect for a bit. Thank you for all your support and understanding. I am so blessed to have amazing friends from the blog world. It is a fabulous world, but we all need time to sleep!

Have you ever gotten burnt out from something you love? How do you know when it is time to walk away?

Much love,

Do or Don’t {The Turtleneck}…



This fall there seems to be a stronger appearance of turtlenecks.  They can be so cozy and sophisticated.  But they can also look old school, not in a good way, and frumpy.  So, is it possible for everyone to pull off the turtleneck?!!  What about the gals that have a large bust?  I know I personally sometimes feel like that draws a little too much attention to that area, but oddly enough not always.  Depends on the fit of the turtleneck.  Here in the land of the frozen tundra, better known as Minnesota, I think I can get on board with this trend this fall and winter – but, I would love to hear your thoughts!







So, what do you say – do or don’t on the turtleneck trend?

Much love,


Falling For {Burgundy}…



Fall fashion is in full force with New York Fashion Week happening as we speak.  I seriously love fall fashion.  It is like the new year for the fashion world.  One of the fall trends I am crazy for is the deep wine red, burgundy color.  It is great on a bottom, top, dress, and even as a lip or nail color.  It is such a rich, luxurious color.  This color will certainly be getting a lot of attention from my personal style this fall.  One of my favorite lip colors is a deep burgundy and I cannot wait to start wearing it again!







Are you a fan of burgundy or a deep wine color?  How does it work with your personal style?

Much love,


Five Loves…



I love this whole look for a Sunday afternoon.  And the shoes – those can be worked in anytime of the week.

Oh look at that box of treats.  It has been far too long since I have had a macaroon – think I need to do something about that this weekend.



I love these shoes so much.  I think it is such a fun way to add a pop of color to a look.



Another fabulous shirt from Sevenly.  I seriously love this company and everything it is doing to make a difference.



Fall is right around the corner.  I cannot wait for big cozy sweater scarves.

What are you loving this first week of September?

Much love,


Mad for Plaid…



Plaid is no longer just for the hipsters and lumberjacks this fall.  It is chic and taken over the runways, which will be translating to taking over all of the fashionable streets.  Back in the 90’s plaid had a grunge feel – this fall it still has an edgy feel, but not an extreme grunge feel.  There is still a professional feel with this plaid trend.  I am loving it, as I am a huge fan of plaid.  I can’t wait to indulge in my love of plaid even at the office, and not limit it to cuddling up on the weekends in a flannel.







Are you mad for plaid?  What is your favorite plaid?

Much love,
