Inspiration: Flowers

Oh, this mama is tired.

Between planning for a really enormous (and oh so fabulous) event, having a daughter who sleep walks and ends up in the oddest places in the middle of the night, and overextending myself and my schedule until I have no room to breathe, exhaustion is setting in and the dark circles under my eyes are deepening.

Even the weather is a bit gloomy these days, adding to that feeling of sleepiness.

But oh – wait! A simple addition of an accessory that whispers of spring, and suddenly life is a bit cheerier again.

  • What’s a girl on a budget to do when she wants a pretty table but doesn’t want to spend a penny to make it special? 1) Dig in the cabinet for anything and everything that feels like fall. 2) Head outside and bring nature indoors. Last year’s table decor was more streamlined, but we went… [Continue Reading]

  • Well like I said here, I’m diggin’ the jumpsuit craze.  You? I’ve taken my three jumpers into fall by layering them up. Scarf, denim shirt and wrap sweater paired with my favorite new pumpkin tote bag {Hannah Shoulder Tote c/o Robert Matthew}.  Perfect. Done.  Easy.  And I can’t forget to mention… Wrinkle-proof!
