Ready for Back To School with Camo, Tassels and Fringe

Tammy Hiveley - August 10, 2016

I’ve up’ed my game lately. At least in my children’s minds that is. It’s not the years of wiping butts or faces. Or the sleepless nights playing nurse to my sickly little ones. Or even the fun shopping sprees for BTS clothing. Nope. None of that matters to my girls. What does? Well, turns out my girls enjoy TV. And even better – they love …

All We Need Is Love

Tammy Hiveley - January 13, 2016

I found this velvet sweatshirt from Forever 21 a couple months ago. I saw the rich blue velvet from across the store… it totally matches my indigo Anthropology couch {as seen in my home tour}. There was no doubt about it… It must be mine! And just like that, seconds later it was a done deal. Now that Valentine’s Day is creeping up on us, I thought …

Turtlenecks and Grandpa Cardis

Tammy Hiveley - December 16, 2015

I absolutely love turtlenecks. I know they haven’t been in style for years. I just don’t care. The bigger the better for me. I prefer them thick, tight around my neck and all the way up to my chin {the one I’m wearing here is not cutting it}. Sometimes I actually find myself pulling it up over my mouth to breathe warm air into the fabric. Ohhh …

Playin’ it Cool

Tammy Hiveley - September 30, 2015

Why in the world did I think I’d have all this time once school was back in session? Lies, all lies I tell ya! Those people who ask What are you going to do all day? obviously 1) have a maid & a personal chef  2) aren’t building a small business out of their basement & 3) oh I don’t know… should never ask me that again. kidding. not kidding. …

Committing to My Crazy

Tammy Hiveley - September 9, 2015

Committing to my crazy is all I’ve got these days. I’ve been pretty quiet in my last few posts about how I am actually handling my last baby’s departure from the nest. Hard. Extremely hard. To say the least. Last year, I would tear up at the mention of Evelyn going off to 1/2 day kindergarten and as soon as 1/2 day turned to FULL …

Oh, Back To School, Back To School

Cate Mezyk - September 8, 2015

To prove to Dad that I’m no fool… Who can name that movie? That’s the theme song in our home today – my three kiddos are heading out the door and starting another year of school today. Avery begins 5th grade (how did THAT happen already?!) and Sadie and Davis will be in 1st grade. Oh my goodness – how has this day already come? It …

From Here to There and Back Again

Tammy Hiveley - July 29, 2015

You know those days that you just spend every waking moment running from here to there. What do you wear out to a day full of errands, my fashion-minded friends? I’m curious. Me? Well this particular day was 90some degrees with high humidity, so my hair was in a much needed bun and my outfit of choice was comfy casual. WIW to clean the house, grocery …

Mermaid Material

Cate Mezyk - July 27, 2015

You know when you hit click on that order, and then you’re practically giddy while you wait for it to arrive? Maybe you follow that UPS tracking number like some kind of crazy stalker, willing it to hurry along its path to Minnesota. You check the mail thinking, is today the day my new pretty item will arrive? And then the day finally comes, you …

The Naked Jumper

Tammy Hiveley - July 1, 2015

I’ve had this jumper for over a year. Never worn. Every time I put it on it sagged, it bagged, it resembled hideous drapery. And even though I was Marta in The Sound of Music way back when, I just couldn’t pull it off. The hills are alive kept playing over and over in my head. Yesterday I made myself wear what I was thinking quite possibly could …

My Off the Shoulder Jam

Tammy Hiveley - June 3, 2015

Lately I’ve been seen all over town in nothin but cut-out or off-the-shoulder tops {like here, here, here and here}. Clearly it’s my jam this summer. It is so easy. It is this season’s casual-couture. It has a subtle sexiness that I normally wouldn’t associate shoulders with. So naturally I’m completely in love. 100% on board with this new trend. Because we get to pick what’s …
