Dear Ruche: I heart you.

December 12, 2013



Guys, I have to give a shout out to one of my favorite online boutiques ever. Not because they asked me to or because they send me free clothes (I wish!), but because I genuinely LOVE this place – and mostly I couldn’t live with myself if I withheld this gemstone from you any longer. This is one of the stores I check for new arrivals, sales, and those items that I simply can’t live without (hello – welcome to why I stink at saving money. Sorry husband.). If you haven’t heard of Ruche, allow me to blow your mind. Not only are their clothes unique and high quality, they won’t break the bank either…. which equals happy wallets and/or happy husbands, amiright? Ruche is where I picked up the cozy, delicious sweater I’m wearing in this post, which was perfect for a slightly-chilled-but-not-freezing Thanksgiving weekend in Boise. I’ve also rocked Ruche goods in this outfitthis outfit, this outfit, this outfit, this outfit, this outfit, this outfit, this outfit, this outfit (ummmm, is this getting obnoxious?)… you get the point. Anywhooooo – no hidden agenda here. Just giving a genuine shout-out to one of my favorite stores, in case you had yet to discover their fabulousness. (Ruche, if you’re reading this, I take thank yous in many forms. Wait, nope – just free clothes, mostly. And by mostly I mean preferably. The end.)

24 Weeks

Confessions of a pregnant lady:

I often think “Man, this outfit would look baller if I was a lucky Leslie with little twig legs and a basketball belly.”  Womp womp.

I’ve worn these leggings literally almost since I purchased them. Comfort is urrrrything these days.

Heels and I are totally not friends any more.

Standing for any extended amount of time and I are totally not friends any more.

I’ve been having the weirdest dreams guys… like, EVER. Is that normal when you’re pregs?

And now a note about this sweater: mostly it’s the Comfy cozy deliciousness at its finest. Also it’s on sale at Old Navy right meow….by which I mean it’s like $3 off from the original price – but hey, every dollar counts, amiright? I own this sweater in cream too and I’ve been wearing them around the house nonstop. They’re just so yummy! Anywhoooooo… hope the start of your week has been ok! xoxo

Any one of these ensembs would work great for looking shnazzy in the office, at a holiday party, or even for up-leveling the class of everyday wear.

Life Lately (according to my life)

December 6, 2013

Sorry for the personal pics overload. Turns out there’s just been a lot to share lately. Thanksgiving, Boise with the fam, and the rest of our cruise pics. November and December have always been the most magical months of the year in my opinion. Agreed? Hope you’re soaking it all up and enjoying your faces off! Husband and I are headed to Carmel and Monterey this weekend to celebrate our 3-year anniversary! We actually share our anniversary date with my sister and brother in law (December 18), so we had the brilliant idea to meet up and celebrate together. Woot! If you’re in California (or even if you’re not), Carmel and Monterey are definite must-sees. Adorable. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxo
