Lavender Off-the-Shoulder Top for Spring + I’m 27!

I’m officially 27-years-old! Woo! My birthday was this past weekend and if you follow me on Instagram, you know the weather sucked, unbelievably. However, I took the stormy day to spend time indoors, relax a little and get a bunch of things done. It was actually quite nice since Johnny paid for me to get take out and I didn’t have to cook! The weather may have been gray but my mindset was and continues to be so sunny. A lot happened while I was 26. I was on an emotional roller coaster with my Dad’s traumatic brain injury and I had to go through a lot of emotional challenges. Honestly, many of them I didn’t think I would face until my 40’s. However, every bad moment makes me grateful for the good ones. I’m stronger physically, mentally and emotionally. I’m more passionate about what I do. I cannot wait to see what’s in store for 27!  Read more…

The Perfect White Lace Blouse

Since spring is starting to show up on the East Coast a bit, I’m celebrating with this all white look, including this perfect white lace blouse. One aspect I love is how well done all of the crochet lace is. You can truly see the quality in this top and feel it when you wear it. This top comes with a cami underneath, too. The sleeves have a little flair for the dramatic because they are a little bit extra, but I love it! I really like high-neck blouses and the detailing around the neck are beautiful. To better show off these details, I went with more subtle earrings and these ear climbers are the perfect touch. While I usually prefer dangling earrings or statement earrings, these are a nice touch with the fun colors and shape.  Read more…

Hearts of Pom :: Knit Your Love Cardigan

Happy Monday Y’all! I’m going to be honest, I did not watch the Super Bowl, but I do love the Eagles win because they’re underdogs! A good underdog story is always appealing to me. Perhaps it’s because almost every time I competed I was the underdog.

I’m sad Punxsutawney Phil predicts another six weeks of winter! I don’t mind winter, but I would like for temperatures to be warmer than the 30s! Plus, I’ll be getting plenty of that in PyeongChang and Gangneung when Johnny and I are there for the 2018 Winter Olympics! That’s where this wine knit your love cardigan comes in handy. The pom poms are in a heart shape, so this is perfect leading up to Valentine’s Day. Plus, it’s 100 percent acrylic, which is a nice cozy and warm fabric. This is a great layering piece, whether it’s over a tank, like I am here, or with a thinner sweater. Keep in mind, this piece is hand knit, so there are some gaps where wind can cut through. This isn’t the warmest cardigan, but it’ll do for mild winter temps. Read more…

The Perfect Lightweight Sweater for Fall

Happy Wednesday Friends! Fall may be in full swing, but we still get touches of warm weather here and there. This camel lightweight sweater is the perfect piece to wear now and again later. It’s not too thick, yet the knit is super cozy. Plus, it’s super stretchy and fits like a dream. I’m loving the high-low silhouette, which is flattering on all heights, whether you’re petite like me or super tall. If you are like me and have issues achieving the perfect “front tuck” this is an easy way of getting a similar look without having to mess with your sweater for forever. A lightweight sweater such as this one is perfect for just throwing on and going out the door. There’s no fuss and you’ll know you look chic. I love a good camel sweater in the fall, but this lightweight sweater also comes in ivory and gray. Read more…

Mixing in Fall :: Purple Balloon Sleeve Sweater

Happy Wednesday Y’all! While the weather is still fickle in Coastal Virginia, for the most part, things are cooling down. Transition pieces are still necessary for me, since some days it’s almost 90 degrees and some days it’s a crisp 60 degrees. This purple balloon sleeve sweater can easily be worn with shorts, skirts or jeans, depending on the weather. The color is incredibly eye-catching, yet easy to style. Balloon sleeves are a trend from last winter. However, they are sticking around and I’m really enjoying it. One aspect I really like about this purple balloon sleeve sweater is how the sleeve is cinched, so I don’t have to worry about it getting dirty or accidentally dipping itself into anything. This knit is ideal for fall because it’s not too thick. Even though it’s not wool or cashmere, it works super well as a transition piece. Read more…
