restless…

My mom called at the shop this afternoon, and asked about my day. “Mmm, okay. It’s kind of slow,” I replied. “Good,” she said, “you need a little break to catch your breath!” She’s totally right, as per usual. But why didn’t I think of that? Chad and I are both guilty of catching ants-in-the-pants when our plates aren’t as full as we’d like them to be. And after the crazy shuffle of the holidays,…

Gap trench (a pretty penny, available online) | LC Lauren Conrad pintuck blouse | Lauren Ralph Lauren sweater (part of a twinset, a pretty penny) | DL1961 Angel ankle jeans (c/o) | Apt. 9 boots (on sale at Kohl’s!)  Just in case you’re in a mid-week funk and need a little motivation, here are some inspiring words from Gloria Steinem. I found this quote recently in a magazine — Glamour, perhaps? — and I loved…

how quickly things change…

vintage silk button-down (gifted from Little Tin Soldier!) | Old Navy oatmeal sweater | Romeo & Juliet Couture faux leather jacket (Hautelook) | INC ankle zip skinnies | Apt. 9 boots (Kohl’s) | Burberry bag (a pretty penny) | knitted beanie c/o Seams to Be  I wore this two days ago. It was in the 30’s, and even under three layers and a beanie I shivered. Today I’m wearing the same sweater [it’s Friday and…
