This post is another in my comfortable mom clothes series. I’ve been giving this a lot of thought apparently. This week’s inspiration comes from two dresses that I’ve been wearing on heavy rotation ever since I bought them, and I highly recommend the entire collection. Continue reading
The past couple of weeks I’ve really noticed the change in my personal style. It’s interesting how quickly I’ve gone from dressing like a teacher, to coming dangerously close to wearing sweatpants everyday. Luckily, I don’t own any sweatpants, (I got rid of all my college gear a couple of years ago) so I can’t actually give into the temptation.
It’s especially difficult on days like today when I’m not planning on leaving the house. So here’s what I came up with. Continue reading
This weekend we decided to explore our new state and head up to Duluth, MN. The drive up was beautiful; it was a nice warm day and the trees still have their colorful leaves.
A couple months ago I challenged Stitch Fix to find me the perfect pair of fall jeans. It was so much fun, and I ended up with a fantastic pair of distressed Pistola jeans with an interesting wash and ankle zippers. That experience inspired be to try it again, but this time with booties. I asked Stitch Fix to send me five pairs of booties, and gave them a description of what I already had and what I was looking for. I was really hoping they would send me some fun fall-colored booties, because the two pairs I have are neutral. I also need ones without a ridiculously high heel, because although those look really awesome, they’re just not practical for my stay-at-home-mom lifestyle.
I purchased this tunic from Trunk Club a few months ago while I was trying to grow my fall wardrobe. I haven’t worn it yet, cause while the color is beautiful, there is a lot of fabric and it’s a little overwhelming. I wasn’t sure exactly how to style it before now. I think I’ve got it figured out though. This outfit was perfect to take my son to the park!
I decided to wear the tunic over leggings. However you could also wear a top like this with the front tucked into a pair of pants (if I remember correctly that’s how the model was wearing this tunic). I wanted to add a layer onto the tunic, so I chose a vest to give the outfit a little structure. I also decided to go with a vest instead of a jacket, because there is nothing more annoying than having long sleeve bunch up inside a jacket. Also, the sleeves on this tunic are SUPER long, so they would have stuck out from the jacket a few inches.
Tunic – Free People Anna Burnout High/Low Tee now 25% off + other colors (Trunk Club Review) | Vest – J. Crew Factory Quilted Puffer Vest | Leggings – nothing special; good option | Shoes – Sam Edelman from Nordstrom (no longer available/similar) | Necklace – Charming Charlie (similar) | Sunglasses – Wantable (Wantable review/similar)

Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom
In this post Carrie is sharing fall outfits that are still warm weather appropriate. This is something I have been struggling with. I really want to wear all my sweaters and scarves, but then I get way too hot! I love Carrie’s look, with the on-trend cold-shoulder top and cool fall colors. I think she accessorized the look perfectly, and booties are a great way to dress for fall.
Nicole from High Latitude Style
In her post Nicole shows us the outfit she wore to a seven course potato dinner! As a fashion AND food lover, this post really caught my eye. Definitely go to her post to check out the menu. The dish that sounded most interesting to me was the purple potato ice cream! Even more impressive than the menu is this fabulous dress that she made herself! I love the print, and that silhouette is perfect. I love how she styled it with simple black flats — perfect for dancing!

As the weather gets colder I’ve been thinking more and more about cozy sweaters. I have a couple that I can’t wait to wear, but I have a feeling I’ll be living in sweaters now that we’re living in Minnesota. I’ve been scouring the internets for cozy sweaters that won’t break the bank. I’m having a hard time deciding which ones I should try. Take a look at what I found! Continue reading
On Saturday we drove an hour to Govin’s Farm in Wisconsin. A friend of ours is from there, and she recommended it and met us there. They have lots of great activities for kids and adults, including a gigantic corn maze with a tractor ride to the entrance, animals to pet, pig races, and lots of games like mini-golf, rubber-duck races, and a inflatable platform to bounce on.
They also have little “CORNundrums” scattered around the farm, that are little brain teasers to solve. They each have a picture that illustrates a common phrase, for example, a dog whose body is an ear of corn (corn dog). I just love corny jokes. There were also BINGO cards and activities inside the corn maze. There was so much to do it almost felt overwhelming! Continue reading
I got my September Wantable Accessories box late this month. I skipped it because of the move, but then I couldn’t help myself and ordered it before the October Collection came out (which is currently on its way here too). This month my stylist went in a different direction, and sent most accessories and only one piece of jewelry. Continue reading
It’s starting to cool down in Minnesota! When we arrived it was like walking around in warm bathwater (which I loved, but Kyle didn’t enjoy because of carrying boxes up to our apartment) and for the past couple of weeks the weather has been mostly hot and sunny. We did have one outrageous thunderstorm though! I’ve never seen lightening look like a constant strobe light before. Now it’s been raining more and the temperatures are lower. On the bright side, I can wear my fall clothes without roasting. Continue reading
Elizabeth&Clarke is probably my favorite subscription service. I’m sure it’s because I can only get a box once a quarter. It’s that inability to get what I want when I want it that keeps me hooked. After seeing the preview of the Fall collection I just couldn’t wait to get it! Especially because of one of the shirts. Before I show you the collection though, let me explain how it works.
