Around here, we like to mis-pronounce things. There’s usually a story connected with whatever we’re mixing up and twisting around; many of them stem from our children’s sweet little baby lisps. For instance, my youngest daughter is often looking around the house for our “stablerizer,” which is so much better than just a regular old stapler. She’s also given us the gift of the word …

For Day 3 of my 7 Days/7 Ways remix challenge, I’m pulling up my hair and battling the humidity. Braids are my go-to summer look. It hides the crazy that goes on up on my head – my natural texture turns to a ball of fuzz when the moisture levels rise. And while visiting a favorite bookstore (complete with cats, chinchillas and other fun animals) …

Playing Peekaboo

Cate Mezyk - April 23, 2013

Not only is my 8 year old my photographer for all my outfit posts, but she’s also apparently my new fashion director. Because the other day she asked if she could choose my outfit for me before doing photos. Knowing that I was on Day 6 of my 7 Days/7 Ways necklace challenge remix, she put thought into what would work with the Sanibel necklace. …

Peachy Keen

Cate Mezyk - April 17, 2013

Spring has officially sprung (well, sort of – we’ve still got some snow on the ground here in Minnesota!), and now’s the perfect time to mix up your wardrobe and introduce a burst of color! Sometimes the transition from Winter to Spring can make it difficult to adjust your wardrobe accordingly. Shaking off the darker tones of winter can be a long process – especially …

It’s Black and White

Cate Mezyk - April 9, 2013

I’m loving all the black and white out there in stores this season. And a black and white leopard print cardi? Well, you know I’m not going to leave that one behind at the store. I mean, it was on sale and it was super cute – sounds like a no brainer to me! Pairing it up with my new Stella & Dot necklace for …

Going Down in a Blazered Glory

Cate Mezyk - March 6, 2013

Here’s the final roundup of my 7 Days/7 Ways blazer remix challenge. My favorite part about these challenges is that it forces me to stop grabbing what feels comfortable together and think creatively about how to wear an item. If you’re not familiar with how they work, well then let me fill you in! I take one item and wear it seven different ways for …

Stick A Fork In Me

Cate Mezyk - March 4, 2013

Day 7 of my 7 Days/7 Ways blazer remix, and I’m finally done. Full discretion: This seven day challenge ended up being a 9 day challenge for me. Why, you ask? One of the days ended up with blurry photos, so I re-wore it on Day 8. Sometimes that happens when you’re photographer is only eight years old. One of the days ended up with …

The Flop

Cate Mezyk - February 27, 2013

March is nearly here, and it’s a month filled with parties – all three kids’ birthdays fall in the same week. It got me thinking about the many parties we’ve hosted over the years. We love opening our home to friends, so there have been quite a few of them. But one stands out in our memories. It’s the one we affectionately refer to as …

Blazer Is The New Black

Cate Mezyk - February 25, 2013

Every season, it seems, you hear something or such and such is the new black. I’m telling you, this denim blazer is now it, at least for me. My past remix looks for my 7 Days/7 Ways blazer challenge have been anything but simple (catch Day 4 here, Day 3 here, Day 2 here, Day 1 here), but paired with a simple all black ensemble, …
