Darling’s! Hope you are enjoying September as much as I am! Recently I went to a family friends baby shower and I have to say the weather outside is perfect this time of year! The sun is still shining and the air is turning crisp… and I was finally able to pull out some of my favorite boots from storage! I got to spend the afternoon with my parents and the evening going out to dinner with Cory and some friends.. It really was a great day! Enjoy!










Hello Darling’s! It is already Wednesday again! looking forward to a more relaxed end of the week. hoping to get some time in with just me and the hubby! Sadly our summer seems to be coming to an end.. its gotten cold and gloomy the last few days… makes me feel like fall is officially here- time to break out the boots and sweaters!! The other day Mom and I stumbled upon this amazing hand painted wall downtown and just had to stop and get a few pictures near it! Enjoy!

Black & Tan::

Hello! Happy Wednesday Darlings! It has been a rainy week here so its tough to get up and going! I want to share this OOTD post from last weeks networking event… it was an amazing night- steak and perch fry, live music, auctions, and of course great conversations/networking! I have really been enjoying black, tan, gold etc. these days and skirts seem to be a must- last week it was 90 degrees almost everyday- so the rain was welcomed for the first few days- now I am just hoping it goes away in time for our busy weekend- need to take advantage of the sunshine while we still can! Don’t get me wrong I am starting to slowly crave fall- the boots and sweaters and just comfy days inside watching movies with some hot cocoa! I did however go shopping last night and just had to buy a few transition pieces… light scarves, t-shirt dress that can easily be worn with leggings and boots! Enjoy the rest of your week everyone!

Hey! Happy Wednesday! I wanted to just take a quick minute to add a few more pieces that I got from the amazing

Stella and Dot Collection : )

First let me start out by saying Monday- our anniversary was very nice but very laid back, we did our traditional out to dinner venture and headed home for a relaxing night… Last night however, we were given the opportunity by a great friend (he stood in our wedding) to take some anniversary photo’s of the two of us… it was a sunset shoot and we had a lot of fun!

Back to Stella & Dot!

Hello Darling’s, Hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! I want to apologize for the lack of post’s lately.

I hope to be back at it again and I wanted to start out by thanking you all for your understanding and continued following… means a lot to me! The weather is warming up and it is finally time for fun summer activities like boating, biking and grilling out with family and friends! Back in April I had hosted a Stella and Dot Trunk Show and I finally was able to order my haul the other day!

Sparkle & Jumpsuit::

Happy Cyber Monday everyone! December 1st already… the holiday’s are in full swing! We had a crazy busy weekend full of family fun with Eric being in town… too many laughs my ribs still hurt! The house is all decorated and I am just loving the way it turned out!! I wanted to share the outfit I wore to drinks on the 96th floor when we were in Chicago… I got this Black Jumpsuit many years ago (sadly 5) and it no longer fit until just recently when I lost those 18 pounds… So I was trilled when I put it on but upset that it was such a deep V- so I dug in my closet and found this gold halter crop top that was my mom’s in the 80’s and thought it was the perfect hint of sparkle and accent! Enjoy!

Tulle Ballerina::

Happy Friday & Happy Halloween!! So excited that Halloween lands on a Friday this year! I have seen little kiddos all dressed up for the last few day’s getting as much use out of the costume and as much candy as they can! I decided to play it easy with a tulle skirt that I love to twirl in.. with a bit of black edge… I danced for 14 years so this was a fun one for me to play with… What are you going to be for Halloween?!

Happy Monday Everyone! Hope you all enjoyed the weekend as much as we did- we were on the boat every chance we got to enjoy the amazing weather… stopping and docking for an outside patio bite along the way! This past Saturday night I was given the opportunity to attend a charity garden party where all the money raised went to Children’s Hospital over 125,000 was raised!!! Such an amazing feeling to be a part of such a generous community! Food, beverages and flowers were donated from companies making the night a success along with an amazing firework show put on by a few neighboring houses that put the 4th of July city fireworks to shame… so amazing to watch! It was such a great evening with friends and family and lots of laughs and memories made!
