12 Wardrobe Staples For A More Streamlined Closet

It doesn’t seem to matter how many clothes we have, who hasn’t at one point looked into their closet and thought, “I have nothing to wear”?  No one.  So, the concept of a No Buy February or not making any unnecessary purchases for an entire month can seem almost impossible.

Unless you have a cheat sheet.

We’ve made it over a third of the way through No Buy February!  Who’s still with me?  I must admit, the first week was pretty easy.  I was feeling very motivated by my self-issued challenge, and overly confident in my newfound restraint.

Maldives Diary: My Evening Looks

It’s been over a week since we returned from our honeymoon in the Maldives and with each passing day I wonder more if it was all a dream.  Seriously, this was the most amazing vacation of my life and I still can’t believe it actually happened!

It was really the perfect storm of perfection: our honeymoon, in one of the most beautiful places you can imagine, somewhere neither Marc or I had been before, and coming off […]

The Casual Side of Faux Fur

I want to share more thoughtful posts this year, with experiences to which you can possibly relate.  And to inspire you in your own life.  But my first love is still fashion and style, so I’m not getting rid of the outfit posts!  My plan is to mix in the outfits with other, more thought-provoking pieces.

This is one of those outfit posts.

I fell in love with this faux fur coat the second I saw it […]
