3 Ways to Style A Tulle Skirt

At first glance, it reads rather ballerina-esque… You might think there is no way a tulle skirt can be versatile. In fact, I was in that camp too! I thought tulle skirts were beautiful and romantic, I just didn’t think I could get enough use out of one to warrant a purchase. However, I eventually succumbed to the constant Facebook ads. [Guess Mark Zuckerberg knows I was browsing for tulle?!] Anyhow, one of these beauties ended up in my cart and it blew me away with its versatility.…

Put ‘On the Spot’? How to Cope with Work Pressure

The leopard puns? Yes, I am going all out in this post—so brace yourself! But in all seriousness, these jokes lead us to an important topic: healthy ways to cope with work pressure. I was chatting with a friend the other day who felt “put on the spot” at work. They were suddenly thrust into a role they believed they were unprepared for.…

Crisp mornings, technicolor leaves, pumpkins lining neighborhood porches… What’s not to love about fall?

The Mom Uniform Reimagined

I’m sure I’m not the only woman to admit, I’ve fallen into a bit of a style rut (or should I say black hole?) as a mom. Sure, I pull myself together for blog content and the days I work. However, my daily style is more hot mess than hot mama. Pretty sure I donned a paint-stained, oversize graphic T with various iterations of leggings 3 days in a row this week… Washing it makes it okay, right?…

How to Score the Best Deals at Carter’s

You know that involuntary gasp of… “Oh my gosh, that’s adorable” you tend to see with kids’ clothes?

There was a LOT of that going on at the Carter’s launch party at Lafayette, Indiana’s Tippecanoe Mall. Not only were moms checking out impossibly cute baby gear, they were showing off impossibly cute babies (video proof below). Seriously, I have never seen so many darling kiddos in one place!…

How to Prepare for Family Photos

In most facets of life, my husband and I are DIYers. If we can look it up online or save money by testing the waters ourselves, we’ll do it. Consequently, for years we thought we could be our own photographer. These images prove how wrong I was!

We never did engagement photos. We didn’t do a newborn session — and I regret it. A family “selfie” will never capture the emotion and love these images evoke.…

Has the fitting room ever made you cry?

I know this sounds a bit dramatic… However, I’ll bet some of you are nodding your head right now.

So, if you’ve ever stood in front of the mirror wondering why you can’t just have a “normal” body, please know you are not alone.…

Subtle coastal decor: How to Get Beach Chic

Whoa – it feels like an eternity since I’ve talked about decor. If you’re wondering why, I have one word for you… toddler. His ability to make messes far outpaces my ability to clean them up. Consequently, all decorating and interior projects have taken a backseat to the daily triage of keeping the house from looking like a stuffed animal bomb went off. I feel I’m always juggling things, waiting for the ball to drop.…
