what i wore : coffee at blacksmith

May 12, 2015

Photos by Uncork Over the weekend I met my friend Christie for a coffee + blogging date at Blacksmith in town. It was such a treat for me to do something like that – two hours of leisurely chatting, sipping lattes, & writing in a new-to-me coffee shop with no kids! We decided to try and make it a monthly routine so I’m pumped about that. I wasn’t planning on taking outfit photos, but Christie offered and I decided that even though I was wearing jeans and a t-shirt it was pretty representative of my style in general. My husband made so much fun of me for using the word “momiform” but…that’s kinda what this is. :) I actually love…

what we wore : a day at the park

March 31, 2015

It finally got warm and sunny here after what seemed like months of dreary gray and rain. Meredith needed a little personal attention from mommy, so we had a girls’ day with a friend of mine. A little shopping, visiting my brother, and then walking around one of the nice big parks in town. Very fun. And hey, this is my first attempt at some outfit photos! Over the past year I’ve developed a pretty strong sense of my personal style so I thought it’d be fun to share. Unfortunately we were out and about in the middle of the day so the lighting here is pretty harsh, but you get the idea right? Meredith’s wardrobe is almost all hand-me-downs…

my summer capsule wardrobe

July 22, 2014

I’ve been mentioning that I’m in the process of determining my personal style and putting together capsule wardrobes for each season. Recently I was able to purchase some sorely needed summer items, and as of now I feel pretty good about what I have. The following clothes are what I’m wearing almost exclusively, apart from a few items that I have in duplicate colors. black pullover¬†/ black striped shirt (maternity from Ross) baseball tee (Gap, in stores) / gray striped shirt (Gap, in stores) / gray sleeveless henley white shirt (Gap, in stores) / cream tank / black & cream striped shirt (maternity from Ross) army green open tee (old from Target) / green v-neck / flowered shirt (maternity from…

thoughts on personal style

April 9, 2014

Soon after Liam was born this chambray button-up shirt went on sale at J.Crew Factory. I had wanted one for ages but it was hard for me to pay a high price for it, and the ones at Target or equivalent weren’t very flattering. With the sale (that is still going on!) it was a good deal, so I bought it and it was the best purchase I’ve made in a long, long time. This shirt is amazing. It’s not too thin or too thick. It’s loose enough but still flattering to my figure. It’s a neutral so it pretty much goes with everything. I wear it with maxi skirts, jeans, and yoga pants. You could wear it buttoned up…
