the 8 most flattering shorts of summer

Shorts have always been my nemesis. Even 19 year old Sherri refused to wear shorts, mainly because she was highly annoying, and didn’t understand that she did not, in fact, have cellulite ON HER KNEES. She was the weirdo who would wear jeans to the actual beach. Or the pool. Or when it was 100 degrees outside. 

What 19 year old Sherri didn’t know was that pregnancies (and unnecessary amounts of peanut butter m&ms) would eventually bless her with ACTUAL, cellulite, spider veins, and old lady knees. She really didn't know that one day, she would look back and wish that she had walked around in daisy dukes every moment of the day.

She also didn’t know that she kind of had issues, and that doing 3 hours of cardio every day would make her look like a bobblehead. Younger Sherri didn’t know a lot of things.

the rare fashion unicorn: year-round closet staples

Guys, get ready. I’m about to drop some truth on you, and let you in on my TWO spring MUST HAVES. They are complete staples and will be the workhorses of your closet this spring. And probably also of your entire life, let’s be for real.

Ready to have your mind blown? In 3….2….1….

A denim jacket and a floral dress. BOOM.

I know, I know, you’re all But Sherri, every blogger on earth has already told me about denim jackets. AND floral dresses. This isn’t mind-blowing at all.

And to you I say: RUDE. And, anyway, I’m talking about THIS EXACT JACKET. And THIS EXACT DRESS. (Well, not the exact one that I’m wearing. That might be weird. But ya know, the one you’re going to buy so we can twin.)

7 wardrobe transition staples

The holiday’s are over, and you know what that means: it’s spring now.

JK, but the struggle is real when transitioning your wardrobe to a new season. Like, for example, when your VERY RUDE husband refuses to acknowledge the arrival of a new season by welcoming it with all new clothes. Or when the weather insists on being 80 degrees the very first day of February. (That was really only tough on the people who had to see my “winter white” legs, but Pinterest tells me that winter white is on-trend. So we’re fine.)

Sweater Dresses You Need Now

You know how you sometimes accidentally on purpose buy all these dresses, because you think your life is fancy. And then, you remember that YOU ARE NOT FANCY. And that you only buy dresses because they will probably make you look just like the model wearing them. (Spoiler alert: They won’t.)

Anyone else? I mean, it’s like my brain forgets for a second that 95% of the time, I’m reaching for sweats, OR sweats that masquerade as real pants. (Looking at you, joggers. And thank you for your service.)

the must have color for your fall wardrobe

Someone once told me, “blondes should never wear yellow.” After a SAY WHAT, followed by a HOW DARE YOU, it became my mission to find a flattering yellow for blondes. Specifically, blondes who aren’t actually blondes, and who also have the skin tone of a piece of notebook paper.

It me.

Anyway, I love yellow and all it’s iterations, but every time I reach for it, I hear that little voice reminding me that blondes can’t pull off yellow. (Coincidentally, it’s the same little voice that likes to remind me that I’m NOT a size 2 and that I’m NOT in my early 30’s.)

how to : style summer dresses for fall

How do you style a summer dress for fall? 

Layering. The end. 

Just kidding, because I AM HILARIOUS that way. (On a related note, why isn't there an eyeroll key on computers? Would be suuuuuuper helpful right now.)

Seriously though, if you've followed me here or on the socials, for any amount of time, then you know I am ALL ABOUT SOME LAYERING.

wear two ways : the pencil skirt

I am ALL ABOUT finding multiple ways to wear my clothes. In fact, the more versatile an item of clothing is, the more it is free. In my mind. #sherrimath is a real thing. Or at least I'm trying to make it into one, so that I can convince John that I am actually frugal. 

It's not working. 

Anyway, while I was basically squatting at my local Nordstrom the last 3 weeks, I was introduced to this skirt. And before I show you why it is SO GOOD, let me just say this:  I was pretty certain this skirt and I wouldn't be friends. In fact, I would have probably never tried it. But then. THEN I did. And now we are married and I have to wear it EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.

white jumpsuits FTW

Nothing strikes fear into a mom's heart like an all white outfit. Because, KIDS, y'all. Kids have an internal radar for anything pristine, and will basically find, seek, and destroy. 

They will use Cheeto fingers.

They will use mud and/or dirt.

They will use snot and boogers. 

They'll use things I haven't even considered yet, because THEY ARE TINY SAVAGES
