Thigh High Socks Outfit Ideas

This time of year it’s all leggings, socks, and cozy outfits. My fav. So when Chrissy’s Knee High Socks contacted me about trying their socks, I knew I had to try it out! Chrissy’s Knee High Socks has been featured on The Huffington Post, Channel 7, Lucky Magazine, CBS Detroit, Metro Times, Teen Vogue and more. I love the way socks look in fall, and I was really excited about styling different outfits. I brought you some  ...

How to Wear Florals in Fall

Can you wear florals in fall? Is a fish wet? The answer is yes to both of them. 😉 Yes, technically you can wear whatever you want, but how can your summery apparel be weather and season appropriate? The key is to balance out the summery print with dark colors and add layers! This is a summer dress I’ve worn in posts before and below is how I wear it in the fall! Another good thing to remember when bringing summer clothes into fall, is  ...

DIY Shoebox Canvas

Who knew that you could make a canvas out of a shoebox? I knew all those shoes I haven’t even worn yet would come in handy! Now you have a reason to go buy new shoes…right? Here’s how you can make a canvas out of shoebox lids for free or next to nothing. Get a pile of shoebox lids you want to use and spray paint them the color of your choice. There are many options you have after this. You could get creative and use  ...

The Ultimate Guide to Fall Outfits

Yay to the first official day of fall! There truly is no season as glorious. You can’t go wrong with sipping apple cider curled up in a blanket with wool socks. Mhmm. That’s what I’m doing right now as I watch The Voice. Except it’s tea. And I don’t have wool socks. So basically that’s not what I’m doing right now. But either way, curl up with your blanket and apple cider because I’m about to  ...

New York Fashion Week Trends 2016 & How to Wear Them

New York Fashion Week just ended a couple days ago. One of the most highly anticipated events of the year brought stars, bloggers, publicists, and celebrities alike to sit it on this event and watch it all unfold. Someday I think it would be cool to go to an event like this at least once, but my favorite part is seeing all the new clothes that emerge! It seems like everything comes back in style. News flash: it does. In this post the school  ...

DIY Entryway Bench

When the husband is away, the wife….has to build stuff herself 😉 I’ve wanted a bench in the entryway after redoing the stairs and I’m taking advantage of some time alone to get stuff done and pretend to be handy! The bench was made out of the former stair treads from the old staircase. With a screwdriver and some nails I put together this super simple bench. I painted the legs white and the top brown, a reoccurring theme in  ...

Will God Make My Dreams Come True?

Dreams have been on my mind a lot lately. Not the kind you have during sleeping…but the kind that keep you from sleeping. The kind that make you stay up all night imagining what you could be, what you could do, and what you could accomplish. The ones that make your heart beat faster. The ones that you see other people accomplishing and you think, “That’s it. That’s what I want my life to look like.” The dream of  ...

Basement Makeover on a Budget

I’m calling this a basement makeover (in progress). And when I say on a budget…I definitely mean on a budget. I was challenging myself to transform the basement into more of a livable, cozy space without spending anything. That’s right. $0. I have to say I’m pretty surprised on everything you can do without spending any money. You just have to reuse your products and get a little creative. When we first bought the  ...

10 Tips on how to Shop for Clothes at a Thrift Store

Shopping at a thrift store. You either hate it or you love it. It’s not for everybody. I love it (but occasionally hate it). I’ve heard many comments over the years such as “I can never find anything good there!” or “I can’t believe you got that at a thrift store!” to even some questionable glances on if it’s sanitary or not. Shopping at a thrift store as a kid can sometimes be not so fun,  ...

Home Decor Trends 2016

In an earlier post I talked about a trip to Pottery Barn and everything I saw and went all heart eyes about. I love Pottery Barn because they style their stores so beautifully. I went a little picture crazy on my last visit but there are so many gorgeous styles coming out that I love! *the following pictures were taken on my IPhone 5c, sorry for the bad quality! Here are the things that I’m going crazy about: Marble cutting boards.  ...
