The 5x5 Style Challenge: Part 2

Hey, hey! I'm back with part two of this fun, but stretching 5x5 style challenge. Though I found myself making a fashion error or two during this challenge I committed to see it through.  Let's hear it for the disorganized giving organization a try! And thank you for joining me on the second half of my first ever  5x5 challenge - hey, I must celebrate the small victories!

The 5x5 Style Challenge: Part 1

Hi! Today I'm sharing half of my first ever 5x5 style challenge! If you're accustomed to capsule wardrobes and lean towards organization in most things, a challenge likes this may be child's play for you. However, as a last-minute-spontaneous-hotmess there's a modicum of emotional danger in challenges such as these. Then I saw Ruth from My Little Nest inviting others to join her and her blogging friends in the Instagram challenge so I decided to reach out to her for more details. Why not??  It was a rainy evening and I had some free time. How hard could it be??

ICYMI: Frilly Florals & Scrumptious Sweets

Hello! Just bringing you a little frilly, floral and sweet for added spring inspiration. Afterall, the first day of spring was this week so we shall feature spring vibes in spite of the chill lingering in the air.  The boys and I have taken our adventures in stride, whether we are hanging at home or trying out a new type of PE for homeschool, we are keeping it simple yet fun. Then of course there is the other day to day life...teens, birthdays with friends and one of my favorites - house warming parties!! Come join me my lovelies...

Today Is A Flowy Shirt Day, A Sale Round Up & Nail Drama

Hello my sweets. Today I'm unloading a little style, a thirst for sales and a little "drama", so hang on.  The story begins with temperatures reaching the mid to high 60s. I feel like Cinderella being awakened by the song of chirping birds, beckoning me to leave the dream world. And just like Cinderella there's little time for relaxing in bed. My feet hit the floor and I outwardly groan in protest. Coffee calls and I answer. Before long it's time to get dressed begin the day.

Color Pops For "Office Wear"

Hey, hey! Today I'm bringing you cropped pants, my one and only stitch fix top and a photoshoot directed by 8 year olds. It's not often that I wear traditional black slacks, dress pants or whatever you like to call them, but I guess I was feeling professional. ;) This particular pair was picked up Chico's warehouse for $3 dollars. The cropped pants were joined by the turquoise/blue heels for $6! This is a rare and undeserved opportunity a friend and I have to shop these deals reserved for employees and their friends. Who knows, maybe this year we will gain access once more...never expected, always appreciated! :)

ICYMI: IG Outfits & Life Snippets

Hello! I hope this post is just a small break from an adventure - big or small - that you are experiencing! Blogging tends to be not only my creative outlet, but where I find lots of mini-adventures. Today is no different as I share ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) feature. As I mentioned in a previous post, I participated in my first IG style challenge, which lasts a whole month! Each month features a new challenge and some days are truly a challenge to keep up with pictures, posting times and balancing blog posts with style posts. Due to the daily challenge grind, I determined in my mind to take the next month off. Well, here it is March and I'm still going!

Happy Sunday! Can you tell by my smile that I find the sunshine to be glorious? After days (you may relate) of dreary rain, the sun made a dazzling appearance and once again the world looked clean and bright. Motivated by the sun's rays, I decided to style this shirt not one, but two ways and just in time for our first Sunday Showcase link up with Ada at Elegance and Mommhood, KellyAnn at This Blonde's Shopping Bag and myself, with special guest and co-host, Shelbee from Shelbee on the Edge. Eeek! Sunshine AND a link up!!

Floral, Ruffle Top to Keep Boho Alive & Link Up

Hi! Goodbye February and hello March. Spring is coming and I can almost taste it, inspite of the fact that I continue to live in fall colors. Look! Even the background makes me think of fall. However, I intend to turn my latest top into a spring top real soon by accentuating those lovely flowers. Real soon...
