back in the saddle!





London Times LBD | Romeo & Juliet Couture faux leather jacket via Hautelook | Apt. 9 midcalf boots (on super sale right now at Kohl’s!) | ASSETS by Sara Blakely Super Shaper Tights | Burberry bag 

Just as tumbleweeds were beginning to roll across my homepage, we’re live with an outfit post!

When Chad and I went outside to take these shots, I asked, “errr, do we even remember how to do this?” It’s good to be back, friends. It’s also good {great} to have a super busy holiday week behind us. Today we’re cleaning up the aftermath and then taking long winter’s naps.

I’m looking forward to getting back to some kind of normal this week, including returning to the blogosphere. I sure missed you guys! I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas with the people that matter most to you.  I’ll share more about our holiday in a bit.

My friend, Amy — who happens to own a super cute gift boutique in town — brought this Burberry bag to the shop to sell. Good news, Amy! It’s sold. {Merry Christmas to me!} ;-)

    How in the world do you not just buy all the good stuff that comes in? I would be a terrible consignment shop owner!

  • The only thing that would’ve made this @bonappetitmag ‘white pesto pasta’ better is if @lallimusic was in my kitchen when I made it. (I re-watched her video as I prepped, which was the next best thing.) Guys, I cannot overstate the seriousness of my obsession with the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel. Most of my bookmarks on my phone are videos of recipes I want to try, and I’m slowly making my way through ‘em; kind of like ‘Julie & Julia’ but with fewer live lobsters and a little less butter.

  • Spotted this pretty blooming bush on our evening walk through the neighborhood. 
Doak got a little *too* close to the smell the flowers. 🤣
  • In today’s edition of #sundaybaking, I took on @bonappetitmag’s ‘best chocolate chip cookies’. I watched the video first — if you’re not following the @bonappetitmag YouTube channel, get on it! — then used the recipe from BA’s website to guide me through it. 
Crispy edges + a chewy center + brown butter + giant chunks of 70% dark chocolate = a pretty perfect cookie. 🍪
@moroccochris - I salute you.

  • Clearance vase jackpot at @pier1 this weekend. There are so many great colors and textures in all shapes and sizes from $10-30 with an extra 25% off. ⁣
This was the ultimate test of self-control for me...⁣
I bought 5.
  • Saturday errand style f/ two #styleonabudget favorites from last summer that are still going strong: this gingham ruffle cami I found on a clearance rack at @target + a rattan circle bag I bought for around $25 on @amazon. 
I’m killing the cost-per-wear game with these two. 😏 #whatiwore #ootd #summerstyle #stylefiles
