Outfit Details:

Sweater: Vintage {purchased from TopShelf Style} | Gray long sleeve top: Lou & Grey, c/o {similar here and here} | Distressed Denim: Joe’s Jeans {Similar here} {Also love these for only $68} | Booties: Sam Edelman Petty {color ‘putty suede’, buy here} | Fringe cross-body bag: TopShelf Style, c/o {similar here, here, and here} | Aviators: RayBan, c/o Sunglass Shop {buy here} | Arrow necklace: TopShelf Style, c/o | Name bar necklace: Bip & Bop, c/o {buy here} {Love this one too}


Hey guys! Another crazy busy week so here I am getting one post up this week. Awwwwwwesome. I wore this ensemb back in Idaho about a month ago or so when I was visiting my family there. You guys – will you get a load of this vintage sweater? I die. Seriously fell in love with it the moment I laid eyes on it. Lots of vintage things are like that for me – they evoke instant lust, no, love even. It reminds me of the days when I basically only shopped at thrift stores and makes me wish I still did that. Mostly it’s the time factor that prevents me from doing so. SF actually has some RAD thrift stores, but I just don’t have the time to go digging very often. Ya know? Anyone who has done a decent amount of thrifting knows that it’s certainly a time investment, although when you find a gem like this, it’s hashtag SO worth it. Luckily I didn’t have to go digging for this one – it was hanging all nice and pretty and ready for me to purchase at TopShelf Style, one of my favorite SF boutiques. You can buy online with them too AND from Instagram, FYI. Woot!

One more word about this outfit: you know these Sam Edelman booties that every blogger and their dog has? Yeah. I resisted for a really long time on getting them even though I thought they were adorable. But I ended up caving, and now I get why they’ve been all the rage. These babies are comfy, and they go with basically everything. They are literally like the perfect bootie in my opinion. Don’t worry that I now have them in three colors {putty suede seen here, honey, and black. Try not to judge me.}. Anywho, if you’ve wondered about these and have thought about pulling the trigger, my recommendation is to just do the dang thang. You won’t even regret it. You can buy them here. You’re welcome.

Anywho, hope you’re all having a Happy Hump Day!

3 Ways to Spring Clean Your Wardrobe

April 10, 2015





Zappos-Spring-1 Zappos-Spring-7

Zappos-Spring-4 Zappos-Spring-10 Zappos-Spring-8

Outfit Details:

Dress: Gap {buy here} | Heels: Steve Madden via Zappos, c/o {buy here} | Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff via Zappos, c/o {buy here} | Stacked necklaces: J.Crew {similar} & Stella & Dot, c/o {buy here} | Sunnies: Urban Outfitters (only $18! Buy here} | Vintage gold bracelets: Sweet n’ Spark, c/o {buy here} | Cuff bracelets: Lulu’s, c/o and Arm Candy Fashion

(**Note regarding this dress: It’s a teensy on the short side (I’m 5’3 for reference). There IS a good amount of hem available to work with though, and it’s so darn cute everywhere else, I think it’s worth it. I’ll be lowering the hem a little but didn’t have time for this post. Just FYI!**)

K let’s be serious – I hate cleaning. Anyone who knows me well can attest to that fact. I wish so badly that I was a Tidy Tonya, or an Organized Olivia, or a Neat Nelly. But alas, despite my best efforts it seems I am doomed to remain a Messy Meredith all of my days upon the land (have we about had it with these name alliterations Shannon? Hashtag overkill, Hashtag you’re annoying).  Womp to the womp womp. However, there is one type of spring cleaning that I don’t even hate: spring cleaning my wardrobe! Do you guys do this? I think this is a thing, right? Well if it’s not, it should be – because by golly it feels so great when you’re finished. Today I’ve teamed up with Zappos to discuss three simple ways (plus a bonus tip) that you can ‘spring clean’ your wardrobe:

    • Go through and get rid of anything in your closet that doesn’t truly bring you joy.  ||  Ok joy might be a strong word when describing clothing I realize, but I heard about this philosophy of using that word as a standard for deciding what to keep verses what to purge from your closet, and it totally resonated with me. I gave it a whirl, and you guys – it felt so good to get rid of items in my closet that I never wear and that I didn’t truly love. Basically, if you find yourself always pushing past it in your closet, or you don’t get some twinge of delight or excitement when you see it in there, it’s time to part ways with that sucker. Bonus points if you give your items away (friends, family, Salvation Army, Deseret Industries, etc.) because then you have the added bonus of feeling good about that too. Score! 
    • Segment your clothes into seasons and only keep the current seasons in your closet (i.e. spring/summer, fall/winter).  ||  I’ve never been able to say much for the amount of closet space allotted to me, espesh since being married, so I’ve always had to season-segment my clothes. The current season goes in the closet, non-current seasons go into storage. But honestly, I’ve grown to really like this method. It keeps what’s in my closet relevant and actually makes me feel like I have more to wear since I’m not pushing through a bunch of coats and sweaters in the middle of summer (or spring for that matter).
    • If you’re buying something new to freshen up your spring wardrobe, focus on color.  ||  K, I’ll be the first to admit that for me, a ‘new’ season doesn’t quite feel anew without adding a few new pieces to that season’s lineup (how many times can I use the word ‘new’ in a sentence? Impressive Shannon).  But if part of your spring cleaning strategy is to replace some of the tired and old with the fresh and the new (there it is again), my advice is to focus on color – especially for spring. Think soft blues and pinks, mints and lilacs, florals (natch), and above all, think white. There’s no color that says so fresh and so clean, clean better than white does. And that’s the essence of spring, right? Bonus points that the color also happens to be a white-hot trend right now (see what I did there? White, the white-hot trend. It works.). If you are on the hunt for some fresh spring-ready items, might I strongly suggest you pay Zappos.com a visit. The selection is endless (as we all know by now) but what I love is that you can also refine your search with a myriad of filter options so that you don’t get overwhelmed.
    • Bonus tip: push your style boundaries just a little and try something new.  ||  As much as spring cleaning is about the actual scrub-scrub, purge, de-clutter, simplify stuff, I think it can also be about renewal. The kind where you take a look at yourself and decide to be brave or be determined or be uninhibited, and to do something different or try something new – whether it’s in your style or elsewhere. It’s liberating to give yourself permission to explore new territory! I for one am pushing myself this spring to give the old Boho trend a whirl. I haven’t really ventured there before, but I think it’s pretty darn cute and I kind of want to give it a whirl. And by golly I think I’m gonna! It is spring, after all – a time for all things new. And you best believe I’ll be heading to Zappos to find just the thing. Orrrrr maybe I already did and already found it and you’re gonna see it in a future blog post. Bam! How’s that for some foreshadowing?!

So what do you think guys? Was any of this helpful? What are your spring cleaning methods, especially when it comes to your closet/style? I’d love to hear your tips!

Have a Freaking Awesome Friday!

Thanks for reading. xoxo

To Tuck or Not to Tuck…

April 8, 2015



Chic-Wish-D Chic-Wish-C

Chic-Wish-Top-3 Chic-Wish-E

Chic-Wish-Top-2 Chic-Wish-A

Outfit Details:

Blouse: Chic Wish, c/o {buy here} {similar here and here} | Faux leather jeans: Vigoss {buy here} {similar here too} | Heels: Steve Madden {buy here on sale!} {all sizes available here} | Clutch: Gigi New York, c/0 {buy here} | Bracelet: J.Crew Factory {buy here} | Cuff bracelets: Bauble Bar {buy here} and Arm Candy Fashion, c/o {buy here}

That is the question as it relates to this top here. Typically I’m all about that messy tuck, but this shirt was making me want to go rogue and keep it out… for…some…reason. At any rate, regardless of whether it’s tucked or not, I am a huge fan of this button-up. Chicwish – ya do good things.

You guys – it’s my baby’s birthday today. My baby is ONE year old!! I can’t even handle it. Talk about the fastest year of my life. Naturally my intentions were for this post to be something uber sentimental and Jack focused – like maybe I’d finally get around to writing his birth story – but alas, the Shannon Willardson virus strikes again (in which we intend to do something but then sure don’t end up getting around to it. Womp womp. Worst virus ever. Story of my life virus.). BUT, I’ll be cracking out on Jack-love via the Instagram, so if you’re not following me over there, come on over and follow along! That is if you don’t hate seeing pictures of super, super adorable babies, of course. We’re keeping it simple for birthday #1 – making a cake and letting him destroy it whilst mama and daddy take an inordinate amount of pictures and video. I’m so excited. Bottom line: there is nothing quite like the feeling of being a mama, and having an innocent angel in your charge. Yes it’s daunting and challenging and overwhelming and busy – it IS all of those things – but mostly, mostly it’s just I-don’t-have-the-words-to-describe-it Wonderful. It is so, so wonderful. The wonderful exceeds the challenging 100 fold. I never could have guessed how much I would love being a mama.

Have a Wishful Wednesday!

p.s. One more thing – I’m sorry you guys that my posting schedule has been sooooo lame lately. I’m trying to get myself through the month of April and then recommit to a regular posting schedule that my readers can count on… if I have any left by then, haha. The thing is, when work is chill (did you guys know I have a full time job? I work at LinkedIn. Don’t share that very often, but there ya go), keeping up with the blog feels mostly doable (by way of lots of late late nights). But when work gets busy, the blog inevitably takes a hit. And then when my personal life and work are abnormally busy at the same time, well – you get what you’ve been getting this past month or two – basically a whole lot of irregular nothingness. Like two posts a week if I’m lucky. Are you telling me to shut it in your head right now? Good- me too. I’m sick of hearing about this too. Good thing most likely no one is reading this last paragraph right now anyway, let’s be serious. But jusssssst in case you are, there’s my explanation. And also me vocalizing my intention to get back to some consistency with this whole dang thang. It feels better that way – for me, at least. K shutting up now. Thanks for hangin’ in with me! xoxo

Spring time casual

March 31, 2015



Photos by Lysha Cole Photography

It’s spring, it’s spring – it’s officially spring! I made it back to Cali after being in NYC last week, and you guys – I don’t know if I’ve ever been more excited to see the sun. NYC was cold! Like butt-cold. It sure doesn’t feel like spring over there, which is why I was so delighted to return to sunshine and spring temperatures here in the Bay Area. Woot woot! Don’t get me wrong – we had the most amazing time in New York. That place is truly magical. But I’m ready to get my spring on, yo! Who’s with me?

Husband and I have both had to travel a bunch for work lately (typical for him but very atypical for me), so we’ve been trying to soak up every moment the three of us have had together this past month (Side note: traveling once you have a baby = the most bitter-sweet experience ever…emphasis on the bitter. Woof.). That has meant more Sunday walks through the park (cuz are you seeing how beautiful it is?!), aaaaaaand more Old Navy threads! ON has a bunch of new items in for spring and I’ve been legitimately impressed with this season’s lineup. They’ve taken light, spring colors and fabrics and blended them with easy patterns to create the perfect casual-wear for spring. We’ve been living in Old Navy! But then I guess there’s really nothing new there.

Outfit details are below. And sorry for the pic overload – I have a really, really hard time choosing between pics of my baby, which translates to using all of them. Oops? You’re not mad though, are you? I mean just look at him. I can’t even handle it.

Be sure to check out Old Navy’s new lineup for spring! You won’t even hate it. Like, at all.

Blush crush

March 26, 2015










Outfit Details:

Top: Chicwish, c/o {sold out; similar here and here} | White jeans: TopShop {buy here} | Heels: Steve Madden {buy here} | Statement Necklace: Bauble Bar {buy here} | Clutch: Clare Vivier {buy here} | Watch: Michael Kors {buy here} | Bracelets: Lulu’s, c/o {similar}

Hello from New York! I’m here on business (for my “real” job) and side note: I’m staying in the cuuuutest hotel evs. It’s called Refinery. Highly recommend it. Sigh – I freaking love this city. It’s been awhile since I’ve been here. Couple years I think at least. And the best part about this trip is that husband is meeting me here Friday morning so that we can play for a weekend in NYC together! We’ve both been here separately but never together. So we decided to just make it happen! I’m pretty stoked. What the H should we do while we’re here? Suggestions are welcome.

K but can we talk about how is anyone still reading this blog? Or am I slowly but surely driving it into a dark, vacant corner of the internet where things go to die? Probs. The fact that I’m averaging about two posts per week if I’m lucky might have something to do with that. There are worse things than that though, right? Worse things than never posting on a blog? Worse things than losing every bit of traffic you ever had? Haha. Yeah I’m kind of already over it. Honestly guys it’s all just been a bit too much lately. And by lately I mostly mean this month. The month of March has darn near slayed me. Some time I’ll tell you about it… maybe… that is if I don’t get annoyed with myself while writing about it and decide to delete the whole thing. If I had a nickel for every time that has happened (and will happen in the future), yo I’d be livin’ large right about now! Is anyone with me there though? Do you ever find yourself writing (a blog post, a Facebook status, an Instagram caption) and suddenly feel like if you have to hear one more word come out of your mouth (or head, or keyboard), you’ll blow chunks everywhere? Cuz that’s how annoyed you feel with yourself? Don’t get me a wrong – I love me some social media, and to have a fashion blog we all know you have to be at least somewhat of a self-absorbed, attention-craving whoremonger… speaking only about myself when I say that, of course (whoa – def didn’t just mean to indirectly call every single fashion blogger in the world a whoremonger. NOT what I meant, ok guys?! Muh bad.). BUT, there’s a part of me that sometimes feels so nauseated by all of it. Ya know? Like does anyone really need to see this selfie of me right now? (Oh man – don’t even get me started on selfies. I have kind of strong feelings about them, mostly on the puke-double-puke loathing side of the feelings spectrum). And is anyone really that interested in the deep felt thought I’m about to post on the Facebook dot com? Ya know what I mean? Sometimes I just feel a little bit silly about it all. Buuuuut then I snap out of it and revert right back to my ‘me me me’ mentality and it’s all self-promoting, self-obsessed posts a GO! Haha. Old habits die hard I guess. Now how awkward do we feel about the fact that I just went on a 700 word tangent rampage? I feel awkward about it. I also feel awkward about how many words in this paragraph are italicized. Take it easy Shannon.

As for this outfit: I’m having a moment with all things blush right now – which is pretty original, if you didn’t know that. I don’t think I’ve seen a single other fashion blogger rocking this color yet. Hashtag trail blazer? Right guys? K but are YOU fans? Can I get an amen for the blush love?

If you’re still reading this:

a) thanks for hangin’ in. I really do heart you, whoever you are.

b) Have a Thrift Shop Thursday!

Target at Home

March 23, 2015

Thank you Target for sponsoring this post!



Target-Home-3 Target-Home-C Target-Home-9 Target-Home-7 Target-Home-2 Target-Home-5(^ Jack was also a fan of the accent table. ^)

Happy Monday friends! Sooooo, I’m not sure if it’s common knowledge that I’m a lil’ bit obsessed with interior design. Yeppers. When husband and I first got married, we moved into this house in good ol’ Provo, Utah. It was old as can be and the size of a shoe box, but it had character – hard wood floors, high ceilings, crown molding everywhere, that kind of thing. Chase quickly discovered that having my own place to decorate unleashed a beast in me. An interior design obsessed beast. We’re talking hours and hours of pouring over design blogs and Pinterest and online shopping for things I thought would make our house a home. It took some time and energy to get it to where I wanted it, but I think Chase and I were both surprised at how affected we were by the final result. We had pulled something together that felt like a reflection of our personal style and that we could have a sense of pride in. It had such an impact on how we felt when we walked through our front door. And part of what shocked us too was that we had done it all on a tight, newlywed-college-student budget. And honestly? Target was responsible for so much of that. Lots and lots of things we used to pull our home together then were from Target. And we weren’t even mad about that.

Fast forward a few years: husband and I just moved. Yep! We’re out of the last place we were staying and into another. Lots of our furniture had been in storage, so it was time to pull it all out and remind myself of what we had to work with. While I still loved a lot of our old things, a new place equated to needing some new things in my mind. I needed a starting piece that could freshen things up without breaking the bank, and something that could help the room take shape so I’d have something to build off of. Something with high impact but low maintenance. I came across this adorable accent table and instantly fell in love. The color, the unique fretwork on the front, the size – I loved it all. And I love how even though we are still pulling together the rest of the design elements in the room and the rest of our place, this table makes a statement and helps things look a little more ‘done’. Accent tables are good for that. And Target is good for accent tables. K let’s be serious – Target is good for everything. It is legit one of my go-to’s for adorable yet affordable home decor.

So what do you think? Are you an accent table fan? Are you a home decor fan? We haven’t talked a ton about this on the blog you guys so I’m genuinely curious. What are your struggles when it comes to interior design? Let’s talk about it!

Find your style @Targetstyle.


Have a Mayhem Monday!

Perfectly (un)Done

March 20, 2015



This post is sponsored by TRESemme.






TRESemme- Wrist-2

TRESemme- Necklaces




Outfit Details:

Jacket: Lou & Grey, c/o {buy here} | Tank: Gap, old | Jeans: Lulu’s {coveting these real bad} | Heels: H&M {similar} | Handbag: Kate Spade {similar} | Sunnies: Nordstrom {buy here} | Watch: Michael Kors {buy here} | Bracelets: Sweet n’ Spark, c/o {buy here} | Criss cross bracelet: TopShelf Style, c/o | Pearl necklace: Lulu’s | Insignia necklace: Bip & Bop, c/o

Let’s be serious – does anyone ever wake up and think ‘If I have effortless, sexy, I woke up like this Beach Wave hair today, I’m gonna be ticked.’  Mmmmyeah – I didn’t think so. And who said that beach waves can only work on the beach? I don’t know about you, but I’d take beach wave hair just about any time. Good thing TRESemme is rad and came out with their Perfectly (un)Done product line.You guys, I’m not gonna lie – when I first heard about this (like 6 days ago), I was a little skeptical. I feel like so many products profess to do something that, in the end, they just don’t really do, ya know? I checked out their products – things like ‘Perfectly (un)Done Sea Foam’ and ‘Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray’ – and thought ‘K, but Sea Salt Spray? What does that even mean? And is it really gonna make my hair look beachy?’ I had my doubts. You can imagine then how surprised I was when the combo of Perfectly (un)Done shampoo, conditioner, sea foam and sea salt spray lehhgitimately made my hair look and feel beachy. It worked! Jigga what? Yeah. You heard it here first. K maybe not first but you DID hear it here, and you guys – I’m not lyin! I actually kind of loved the stuff.

Here’s how I used the products:

  • Used TRESemme Perfectly (un)Done shampoo and conditioner. Both of which smell amaze-balls, btw. Not mad about that.
  • While my hair was still damp, I used the TRESemme Perfectly (un)Done Sea Foam. I did a dollop in my palm, rubbed it between both hands, then bent down and flipped my hair over my head to distribute the foam throughout my entire hair. I scrunched my hair as I distributed the product.
  • Next, I sprayed the Perfectly (un)Done Sea Salt Spray all over my still-damp hair, again scrunching as I went.
  • Then I let my hair air dry. This was mostly because I’m way too lazy to blow dry my hair these days. I feel like you could probs blow dry your hair at this point and the results would be the same, but don’t quote me on that.
  • Once my hair was dry, I used my regular old curling iron (an old, not-fancy-at-all 1 incher) to create loose waves. I tried not to wrap my hair around the barrel too many times, as I wanted the look to be wavy, not curly. I held the curling iron vertically and pointing downward, then wrapped my hair around the barrel one or two times, held it there for a sec or two, then released. Once released, I tugged that piece of hair down to loosen the look of the curl a bit.
  • Side note: it says on the products that if you already have naturally wavy hair, all you really need to do is scrunch – no curling necessary. My hair is basically stick straight so I couldn’t pull that off, but I was definitely wishing I had naturally wavy hair in that moment cuz I bet it would have looked uhhhhmazing.
  • And that was it! The result was what you’re seeing here – nothing super special or fancy, but definitely more ‘effortlessly wavy’ that what I feel it usually looks like when I curl it and leave it down. I mean, don’t mind my heinous roots, of course. I also liked how my hair felt and smelled – not super nasty and product heavy. Just lived-in. Beachy. Awesome. Friggin’ awesome.

The best part is that this look really can be worn pretty much anywhere, any time. We’ve seen it on celebrities walking the red carpet in evening gowns for goodness sake! And I def didn’t feel like I had to put on a beach-inspired outfit for this post to keep my hair from looking out of place. It seemed to go just fine with the work-ready ensemble you’re seeing here.

So there you have it! Final verdict: TRESemme’s Perfectly (un)Done line is not telling lies. The products are bomb and they actually create the look they’re professing to create. Totally worth trying out – espesh cuz on top of being rad they’re completely affordable. I got my products at Target and I think for all four of the items I tried, my total was under $25. Cha-Ching! For more hair inspiration and tutorials, visit www.youtube.com/TRESemme.

So what do you think guys? Are you feelin’ this look? Do you think you’ll try out the products? Fill me in!

Then have a Fantabulous Friday!

Happy Friday peeps! Teeeeeee Geeeeee Eyeeeeee Effffffffff!!! That was me reliving my high school cheerleading days and being inordinately excited about something. Go Lions! Do y’all have fun weekend plans? Do we feel weird about the fact that I sometimes bust out y’all like I’m a regular southerner even though I’ve never stepped foot anywhere near that part of the country even? Yep. I feel weird about that a little. Do you also feel weird that today’s post is just an Instagram roundup of recent Insta pics, and if you follow me on Insta you’ve already seen all of these? Are you feeling a little short-changed here? Welcome to ‘What the H can I post that would be quick and easy this Friday so that I get more than one post up on the blog this week?’ mentality. I’m afraid to say it’s taking over my life. But if you’re NOT following me on Instagram, then a) Hooray that these pics are all new to you! and b) You should RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW (insert ‘she’s doing that shameless-annoying-as-crap self promotion thing again’ eye roll). Links to most of the items in these pics are under the pics. And then the pics are under the pics and under the pics. Pics pics pics. How many times can I use that not-even-a-word in a sentence? I need a diet coke. 

Hope y’all (I did it again) have a fantabulous weekend! xoxo

Oh hi. My name is Shannon Willardson and sometimes I blog. You guys! Sorry I’ve been so M.I.A. lately! I unexpectedly had to fly home to Boise last weekend, and then I returned home to us being right smack-dab in the middle of a move. Ugggggggg. Is there anything worse than moving? Just shoot me now how bout.

On a more relevant note – how amaze balls are these white distressed jeans from Topshop? Are they not cute as can be cute? They’re also crazy comfy, believe it or not! So if you’ve been pining away for a pair of white jeans but haven’t been able to find any you love yet (aka this was ME for several months), I’d highly recommend giving these a try. And don’t even get me started on that there jacket. It’s from TopShelf Style, one of my fave boutiques ever. Yeah. They got it goin’ on.

I hope you’re all having a killer week so far! I am headed off to bed now, given that it’s 12:40 a.m. and I can’t keep my eyes open OR form complete sentences. Good night!

Have a ‘Wish a magic fairy would come put my house together so I wouldn’t have to do it’ Wednesday!

Hey guys! Happy Tuesday! Husband and I are right in the middle of moving, which equals wooooooof, right? Is there anything worse than moving? Ug – shoot me now. To add insult to injury, we’re moving into a shoe box in an effort to try to save as much as possible over the next year so that maybe, maaaaaybe we can buy a friggin’ house here in California before we’re 70 years old. Man alive. It’s beautiful as can be here, but boy do you pay for it.

Anyway, enough whining from me. Here’s what I been wearing lately on Instagram! If you’re not already following along, you should be! And if you wait a sec for the dang things to load, you can shop all of these looks below each pic. Happy shopping!
