May Daily Style

May Daily Style

The first few weeks of May are in the books, and let me tell you, it’s been a doozy. The weather has been a crazy mishmash of rain, hot, cold, dry, sunny, cloudy – every season, rolled into two weeks. Good times. That really makes the treasure hunt in the closet a challenge y’all! So here’s what I wore, some buying ideas, and some tips for dressing in transitional weather.

Spring Break Style

Spring Break Style

Happy Spring! Finally!! Yippee!! Our first signal of spring is when the redbud trees start blooming, followed by the pear trees and bright yellow jonquils. Their blooms are a sweet signal that the long, dreary, wet winter might finally be in our rear view window, and pretty, sunshiny days are ahead. Only it’s the south, so we can also expect storms, tornadoes, and seasonal allergies (thank you Claritin and Flonase!!) The hubs and I decided to take a road trip to the Ozark Mountains for our Spring Break this year. We stayed at lovely, rustic Big Cedar Lodge, just south of Branson, Missouri. The trip called for a casual wardrobe, and layers, because of the iffy weather. I am usually so packing challenged y’all! But, I was inspired by the items I received in my latest Stitch Fix to use colors of pink and navy, creating a capsule wardrobe for my trip. Read on to see what I packed.

What I Wore – January 2019 My Shopping Diet Begins

Howdy y’all and welcome! It’s already the middle of January so I guess it’s time to get 2019 started! This is where I share my daily outfits each week, and share some buying and styling tips as well. I’m trying something different this year, and in an effort to get both my budget and my closet under control, I’ve gone on a shopping diet! It’s been a bit challenging, but I’m starting to find my groove! As you probably know – The hubs takes a quick snap of me each morning before I leave for work, and I share it on my Instagram feed. If I have a previously shared pic of the item I post a comparison pic too. Here’s a few of my favorites from the past couple of weeks!

Recap! What I Wore in 2018

Recap! What I Wore in 2018

I love the first few days of January. The year is still so new, and the past year is still so present, which makes it a good time for reflection, as well as looking forward to new things. So I’m sitting here on this gloomy day, drinking my hot cup of coffee and reflecting on the past year. It’s been cold and rainy and downright dreary, but the fire is cozy and warm. As I reflect back, I’m so thankful for the little gifts that life brought me this year – my sweet family; our beautiful growing grandchildren; fun trips and vacations, the joys of my challenging job; fantastic friendships, and you – the sweet folks who pop onto my blog and social media offering words of encouragement and support. I appreciate you more than you can ever know! It’s been fun sharing my outfits, my Stitch Fix Reveals, and my sometimes crazy ramblings on about life. I thought I’d share a few highlights of the year, and also what to expect from my blog as we go into 2019… Continue reading “Recap! What I Wore in 2018”
