These boots again + my new fave vest

October 16, 2013



What does a loose fitting shirt + sucking in + photoshop equal? Disguising your 16-week prego belly as a small food baby instead of a real baby. Yep – that’s what’s happening in these here pics. Can we talk about how happy I am to have this out in the open now? Mostly because I’ve been dying to tell you everything I’m feeling and experiencing (i.e. 12 weeks of near-barfing, overnight porn-star boobs, and the weirdest (for me) cravings evs). Also I was getting real sick of having to suck it in and edit the crap out of my photos just to keep all of this a secret. I’m lettin’ it all hang out now peeps, so get ready!

Something you may or may not know about me: I have some addictive tendencies. Is it mildly creepy when I say it like that? Mmmmyes. But mostly what I mean is this: when I find something I love, I tend to love the crap out of it… in a mildly obsessive way. Take my husband, for example. Obsessed. Honey Bunches of Oats cereal? Addicted. And don’t get me started on what I used to be like with Diet Mountain Dew (peeps who know me from the days of yesteryear can confirm. It was alarming. I’m happy to report that I’ve given up the Dew… but it took getting panic attacks any time I drank it to get me there. Um, yeah – long story.)

Anywhoooooo, this outfit represents a few of my addictions – old and new. Polka dots: an old, tried and true obsession (this one I’m wearing is ON SALE right meow). You’ve already been warned that I’m obsessed with these Hunter Boots (last seen here). And this vest from Joules: my newest addiction. I have a feeling I’ll be wearing this baby allllllll fall/winter long. Pretty sure I’m obsessed with basically everything from this adorable company (check out the rest of their vests… and their jackets. You’ll die.).

Mansemble Study: Justin Timberlake

October 14, 2013



Ohhhhh Justin. You’ve come a long, long way since the sartorial blunders (and by ‘blunders’ we mean out-right catastrophes) of your N*Sync days. And for that, we’re not only applauding you – we’re making you the subject of today’s Menswear Monday post. Watch and learn boys. Watch.And.Learn.

What do YOU think of JT’s style? Are you a fan?justin-timberlake-style-2 justin-timberlake-style-4 justin-timberlake-style-6 justin-timberlake-style-7 justin-timberlake-style-8 justin-timberlake-style

And lest we’ve forgotten, here are some Justin Timberlake gems from yesteryear.justin-timberlake-style-3 justin-timberlake-style-10 justin-timberlake-style-11 justin-timberlake-style-12Yikes.

If that ain’t proof that anyone can have a fashion rebirth and totally revamp their style – I don’t know what is.

Have a Mountainous Monday!

Dogs and Hunter Boots

October 11, 2013



Note: prepare to see these Hunter boots all.the.time. I purchased them a few weeks ago as a present to myself for landing a new job (yahoo! no longer just a ‘contractor’ at LinkedIn! Permanent employment: you feel sooooooo good.), and I have been praying for rain ever since. Then I had this idea: screw the weather and do what I want. Right? So hurrrrrr they be, in all their pillar-box red glory. And get used to it, cuz I LOVE me some Hunter boots. (and for the record, they’re totally worth the price – even in the opinion of my serious cheap skate self. You can get them HERE!)

Oh yeah – there’s a dog on my sweater again. Try not to judge me. (thank you Joules for feeding my animal emblazoned sweater obsession!)
