Things I Love: Long Cardigans

It’s still pretty warm around here, but now that it’s officially fall, long sleeves and jeans and boots are all I have on my mind!  Cardigans are perfect for layering, especially since it’ll be warm in the afternoons but chilly in the mornings well through October, and I am LOVING that I am seeing these longer duster-length cardigans all over the place this fall!  Right up my alley!  Today I’m sharing a few of my favorites that will be coming home with[Read more]

ANYWAY- over the last two weeks I was able to compile[Read more]

Friday Favorites

Welp, I thought I’d get more posts out this week, but hashtag life.  Anybody else feel like the weeks that we have an extra day off just make the rest of the week ten times busier?!  All week I felt like I needed to cram four days of work into five days, and kept me super busy all week long.  Throw in a doctor’s visit for me, a dental checkup for Brantley, softball, church, a leak in the shower, and,[Read more]

What I Wore (Hint: it’s Dresses)

Hello friends!  Sharing a new round of outfits that I wore over the past two weeks.  You know, there are a lot of things that make me sad about the kids going back to school, like the kids being gone all day and having to be a responsible adult and get up at a reasonable hour, but honestly, I love the routine and I feel like I’m so much more productive when we’re on a schedule.  I am also so much more[Read more]
