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…

WHBM Petites :: Gingham Top + Distressed Jeans

Being 5’3, I love when a brand introduces a petites collection! Over the years, I’ve grown accustomed to adding in an alterations budget when I shop for clothes. A lot of the items I wear need to be altered in some way, usually, a hem will do. However, sometimes an item requires extensive work. I love White House Black Market because they have items you can wear both to work and on the weekends. Now, there is WHBM Petites and I could not be happier! Their petite clothing is for women who are 5’4 or shorter, regardless of their size. So what makes an item petite? It’ll have a shortened sleeve, narrowed shoulders, raised waist, shorter skirt length and a reduced pant inseam. Yay for putting my alterations budget toward my savings!  Read more…

Red, White and Blue :: Fourth of July Style

‘Merica baby! Happy Fourth of July y’all! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw I spent my Fourth of July weekend in Washington D.C., which was a blast. I’ll do a full travel guide post soon, but until then I am sharing my favorite Fourth of July style. If this tank looks familiar, it’s because I blogged it two years ago. My friend Olivia accidentally left it it in my bag when we were roommates at Miss USA. I blogged it, but sadly had to return it to her. This year, it’s back and I now have one of my own. It is perfect for pairing with jeans or distressed shorts. I love this All-American Girl tank because it’s easy to style with jeans or shorts. Plus, you can also throw it over a swimsuit as a cover-up. Read more…
