Do you ever feel like you are just too darn busy? I’m in a stage right now (hopefully a temporary one) where I feel like I’m constantly playing catch up. I’m never out ahead of the game, because I’m running to complete everything on my list. And everything gets done just in the nick of time, rather than in a way that leaves me with …

Cozy Tee

Cate Mezyk - September 30, 2014

I have such a hard time dressing for this season. Our weather here is chilly in the morning, as hot as 80 midday, and cools back down in the evening. When you’re out and about all day, (or busy opening a retail shop!!!) there’s no time to change. My solution is the t-shirt dress and some layers. I can start the day with some tights, …

I’m Easy

Cate Mezyk - July 15, 2014

Every day of summer should be as easy as this outfit. A tube dress that doubles as a skirt. A favorite pair of booties that I wear year round. Hair thrown up with a bunch of bobby pins. And a necklace that makes any outfit look a little more special. I always think summer is going to be relaxed and casual. But in reality, it …

Electric Youth

Cate Mezyk - February 5, 2014

When I uploaded these pictures, I couldn’t help but smile because it made me think of my brother and his long ago backyard karate performance. Why is that, you ask? Let me tell you how my crazy mind works. While taking these pictures, I had to keep pulling the shirt away from my body, because it was full of static electricity. Electricity makes me think …

Inspiration: Red

Cate Mezyk - October 13, 2011

Oh, red shoes. You have been patiently awaiting your debut. You were supposed to travel to Kansas City for a wedding, but alas – you arrived on my doorstep moments after I left for the airport. Nestled into my suitcase as we next prepared to leave for a Chicago wedding, you found your plans for hitting the dance floor thwarted as my littlest one woke up …
