Lilee Yamanto dress

Shop similar items: Like my days, I currently have no idea what season it is. Haha. I certainly have a case of the moving jitters, and they have turned my brain into mush. But in the moving jitters’ defense, the weather here in Sydney has been all over the place too. And the day I wore this outfit certainly felt like a beautiful spring day! However, given that I know a lot of my lovely readers are from the Northern… Read more »

grey trench coat

Shop the look: Right now, I have boots, trench coats and scarves on my mind. However, it’s spring here! So, I am really struggling at the moment, haha. It feels so strange to be going through the motions of spring again! But I was able to compromise with myself. I needed a new lightweight coat, as I hadn’t really packed much for coats or jackets, other than a jean jacket. In Wisconsin, it felt like I always went from short… Read more »

Stylish Surprise dress

Shop the look:   New Orleans is fabulous, guys! I’m having a blast! And don’t worry these photos are not from The Big Easy…it’s much greener there, haha. I took these in Wisconsin just before I left. (And a reminder, you can see photos from my trip on Instagram.) And I’m sorry, I know this dress has been featured on my blog a ton already. However, I love, love, love it! And can you ever have too much of a… Read more »

thredUP Spring Capsule Wardrobe

This is the final look for my Spring Capsule Wardrobe Week! And this one is undoubtedly the most warm weather appropriate out of all this week’s outfits. I wore this outfit less than two weeks ago and was honestly too warm while I was taking these photos – it was in the 70s (major heat wave for us)! We were actually able to enjoy some beverages on the outdoor patio at the restaurant that night, and it was heavenly! It… Read more »

thredUP spring capsule outfit

Happy Spring! With yesterday being the first day of spring, it’s officially time to don bright colors and floral prints. But who am I kidding? I never stopped wearing those! However, now the rest of the Northern Hemisphere will be joining me, haha. And in celebration of spring being underway, I’m going to be doing something slightly different on the blog this week. I am partnering with the clothing site, thredUP, and will be showing you my “Spring Capsule Wardrobe.”… Read more »

Shop the look: Can you see me? I’m over here! This may not be the kind of “camouflage” clothing most folks are used to seeing, but I do blend into my surroundings quite well! (Well, except for my Jump From Paper purse. Haha.) I just can’t get enough of all the blooming trees…or flowered clothing items, for that matter. This top is pretty old..I’ve had it for quite a few years, but I still love breaking it out in the… Read more »

Shop the look: I spent almost an entire weekend admiring a plethora of flowering tress. My husband and I went to visit the cherry blossoms (and magnolia blossoms) in Washington, D.C. So, this seemed to be an appropriate time for me to wear a dress with flowers on it. I’ve had this dress for a really, really long time. It’s actually from Hollister, which means it had to have been bought circa high school. Ha. I haven’t worn it in… Read more »

Shop the look: Notice how I am not wearing a jacket, sweater or any other cold weather apparel in these photos. Spring may finally have arrived, folks! It actually made it above freezing here, one day actually made it over 70 degrees Fahrenheit! And it even felt humid. So, it was finally time to break out the light colors and celebrate! My pink pants I’ve had for a couple years, and I actually bought them at the same time as this top… Read more »

Shop the look: It’s that time of year where dreams of flowers and warmer weather are dancing in our heads. However, there’s still snow on the ground, and there’s no end to the chilly temperatures in sight. This outfit is my attempt to brighten up my cold weather blues but still be warm and cozy. I love the embroidered peonies on this sweater and the bright reddish pink color. It’s a nice cardigan for spring, but it’s still warm enough… Read more »
