Back to the Basics with Black

Back to the Basics with Black

When did basic become a bad thing? I can’t remember what I was watching (maybe the Real Housewives?) but apparently you don’t want to be called basic. Being decidedly politically incorrect, I still call things basic all the time. Basic day, basic colors, basic outfit- […]

Instagram Summer 5×5 Recap

Instagram Summer 5×5 Recap

I had so much fun doing my first 5×5 challenge with my friend Carissa, that I decided to head to Instagram and team up with some of my favorite people to do another. This could be called the Target collection (they always get me when […]

Summer 5×5: It’s a Wrap

Summer 5×5: It’s a Wrap

Now that I’ve finally officially done a mini capsule challenge (missed the introduction? Start at the beginning), I can give you the low down about what worked, what didn’t, and how capsuling was for me. Let’s start with that last statement. I want to be […]

Summer 5×5: Bonus Look: Poetry After the Storm

Summer 5×5: Bonus Look: Poetry After the Storm

You thought we were done didn’t you? Surprise! I always had this look in mind for a sixth but I’ve already done it. It came the end of the week and I wanted to wear it to church. So, I figured, why not make a […]

Summer 5×5: Look 4: At the Movies

I didn’t really pick any super casual pieces for this 5×5 (missed the intro and how to? Click here) and that’s great because that’s what my goal has always been for this blog: to pull me out of the mom slump. You know what I’m […]

Summer 5×5: Look 3: Hey Jude

Summer 5×5: Look 3: Hey Jude

This was a hard day. My sweet baby boy turned one. I feel like the last year has flown by in a blur. That’s partly what happens when you struggle with PPA. I find the first year after baby to be a year of flurry. […]

Summer 5×5: Look 2: After the Storm

Summer 5×5: Look 2: After the Storm

This is probably my most basic look for the week, a Graphic Tee and denim shorts. Okay, let me rephrase that. Shorts and a tee is a basic formula for a pretty common outfit. But, this outfit is anything but basic and that’s where conscious […]

Here we are, the beginning of our 5×5 summer challenge (missed the original post? Here ya go and don’t forget to check out my friend Corina’s 5×5 challenge over at www.nowthaticando.com) Can I really do it? Wear 5 pieces for 5 days? Well, I’ll admit it now, I broke […]

5×5 Summer Style Challenge: 5 pieces, 5 days, 5 looks 

I don’t know if I’ve talked about my aspirations toward a capsule wardrobe on this blog (though my friend, Corina of www.nowthaticando.com did a guest post a few months ago). The idea is that you choose a certain number of items and build your wardrobe […]
