Halfway Gone

Cate Mezyk - November 6, 2017
Oversized Ruffle Sweater

I was talking to someone today about how my littles are eight, and how in a few months they’ll be nine. I hate when my kids reach nine. Because nine means they are halfway gone. They’ll have reached the halfway point of living in my home. Half of my parenting will be over (though, of course, you never really finish parenting). I’ll be sending them …

Alright, brace yourselves. I’m about to say something controversial. I know a lot of you won’t agree with what I have to say, but please – hear me out. And hear my heart in it for you. I think you should dress to please your significant other. Yep. I know, I know. You’re an independent woman, you don’t live in the 1950s, you don’t need a …

Blown Away

Cate Mezyk - November 13, 2013

It often gets REALLY windy here. I live in a hilly area with few homes around to block the air from whipping around. It does make for some interesting outtakes for outfit photos. It makes life feel like I live in a wind tunnel. But hey – I’ll take wind over snow any day of the week. Because you know the piles and piles of …

Some Days

Cate Mezyk - November 5, 2013

Some days are meant to be shot in black and white. Late nights and tired eyes are somehow softened by the contrast. This was one of those days. There have been more than a few late nights lately. It’s all for a good cause though…. But the big, huge event this weekend? That’s gonna be full color, baby. You know you’re going to want to …

The Big Hug

Cate Mezyk - October 2, 2013

This sweater feels like the world’s greatest hug (aside from the ones I get from my kiddos and my hubby, of course). And man, do I love a good hug. It’s oh-so-soft and comfy cozy, with just the right amount of keep-you-warmness. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be spending a ton of time wrapped up in it this fall and winter. Though I must …

I’m super excited to bring you this week’s giveaway from the always fantastic KOKOON.

Wild About You

Cate Mezyk - August 23, 2013

As sad as it is to admit it… fall is nearly here. As I type, the temp is hitting 90 degrees, but there’s nothing wrong with looking ahead to cooler days – they’ll be here before we know it. I thought I’d share with you some of the items I’ve had my eye on to update my autumn wardrobe for this week’s edition of Wild …

If I Were Going Shopping

Cate Mezyk - October 2, 2012

I’m trying really, really hard to curb my shopping. Unfortunately, my husband and I don’t see eye to eye when it comes to how many clothing items one person should own. But I WERE to do a little sky-is-the-limit dent-the-credit-card kind of shopping, I may just end up with something like you see here. No harm in browsing, right? Not when the eye candy is …

Stripes on Stripes

Cate Mezyk - September 12, 2012

It’s Day 2 of my striped tank challenge. It’s amazing what adding some color can do to change the entire feel of something, right? A little curious as to what I am talking about? It’s my 7 Days/7 Ways Remix Challenge! What’s that, you ask? It’s where I take one article of clothing and remix it up, by wearing it every day for a week …

So Weird

Cate Mezyk - September 11, 2012

I love fall. But sometimes it’s hard to dress for it. You wake up in the morning, and it’s 50 degrees. Midday it’s in the 80s, and by the time I hit the sheets at night it’s a lovely 70. Layering is key – and I’m starting with my newest favorite item, this striped tank. Only $9.95 at H&M the other day, I’m suddenly inspired …
