amazon and appendicitis

Well, sometimes you plan to have all kinds of great holiday content pre-planned and ready to go the moment Black Friday hits. You just KNOW you’ll be super organized and on top of it, JUST LIKE ALWAYS AND WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING LIKE THAT?

#rude #butalsoaccurate

My goal was to plan content for the entire month of December, well in advance. And by “well in advance,” I mean November 29th, because apparently I DO NOT understand my actual personality or my organizational capabilities.

But, as The People Who Make Up Cheesy Quotes once said, Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans. And I’d just like to rephrase that in a way that feels more authentic:

Appendicitis is what happens WHEN YOU’RE BUSY MAKING PLANS. x

moto style with Triumph

Believe me, if anyone can get stuck in a “I only shop at these 3 places” rut, it’s ME. (Hi Nordstrom! Hi Anthropologie! Call me!)

Sometimes though, I like to look for style in places that AREN’T my go-tos. That interesting store in the little town on your road trip. The girls section in your favorite department store. (I mean, you WILL have to size up. Like, a LOT. And even then, you may or may not look like a stuffed sausage in that tween’s jacket you picked out. And by you, I mean ME.)

(You may also embarrass your daughter by wearing the same outfit she has on. #whoops #sorrynotsorry)

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

living that lemon life

You know what they always say: When life gives you lemons, slap 'em on every piece of clothing you own and wear the heck outta them. 

What? Is that not how it goes?

But seriously y'all, lemons are fetch and also EVERYWHERE. They are this year's palm print, if you will. And you will, because I'm the Regina George of this blog.

white boots for spring (and maybe also for president)

Listen I hate to say I told you so (no, I don't. I love saying that), but I do believe I called this white boot trend that is veering into actual classic category.

And if it's not, don't tell me. Because I am right. And also because when I find a trend I like, I wear it to death until everyone is sick of it.

White boots for president.
