Oh Deer

Even though summer has come and gone, my love for graphic tees has yet to falter.  They are so easy to style and go with such a multitude of different looks.  And while jeans are the obvious choice, I love the unexpected of mixing a tee back to a sparkly skirt, a casual jacket, and booties.  It’s the perfect fall ensemble if you are looking to change things up a bit from the norm (while still keeping it somewhat casual)…

Also, can I just mention how much I love this AE jacket?  I am kind of obsessed with the whole mixed media trend this season, and this denim hoodie is no exception.  To me, this is the epitome of the perfect fall jacket.  But I’d love to know, what do you think about the mixed media trend?

Happy Tuesday!

Fall Into Color

I’ve got a bad habit. When I buy something extra special, or that I really love, I often find I let it stay tucked neatly into my closet saving it for the “perfect” occasion. And sometimes, that perfect occasion is awfully slow in coming. So I am trying to be better about wearing those “special” pieces right off the bat. But I’ve got to admit-I’m a work in progress.

But lucky for me, when styled appropriately, color is perfectly acceptable during the fall and winter seasons. And that means there will hopefully still be lots of special occasions for me to wear my favorite (previously unworn) Kate Spade skirt. And while the temps are still pretty warm, I am loving it back to denim, for a look that’s both seasonally and weather appropriate!

So I have to ask.  Does anyone else out there have the same bad habit I do?  Do you wear your special items right away?  Or save them for later?

Thanks for stopping by.  You all brighten my day more than you know.

Where The Green Grass Grows

Not only did J and I purchase a house two years ago that needed a complete gut job and remodel on the inside, but it also needed a total overhaul of the outside as well. And after countless projects and a lot of hard work (we have done the majority of it ourselves), we are literally one project away from completion-both inside and out. And since one of my favorite things about warmer weather is fresh-cut grass (both the smell and the color), I can’t tell you how excited I am to spend countless evenings on the back deck enjoying ours this summer. And I am guessing this also might just be the explanation as to why I am so enamored with my grass-green tote right now…

I am on the road again this week for work-which marks two weeks in a row.  And while I love my job, I can’t even begin to describe how much I am looking forward to getting home tomorrow night, and spending a nice relaxing weekend lounging in our finished backyard.

Hope you are all having a wonderful week.  Thank you for stopping by!
