As the days are getting warmer, I’m realizing that I got my second job when the weather had already turned cold, and I am not quite equipped for working full time in warm temperatures! It’s the same problem I had in the fall, except with warm weather clothing instead of cold! Sigh. C’est la vie.… Continue reading Sunny Days are Here Outfit
I bought this blouse a looong time ago, early this fall when I first discovered the Vintage Haberdashery here in St. Louis. I’m not sure why it took me so long to get actual pictures of it, but if you’ve been following me on instagram, you’ve seen a pic or two of it in the… Continue reading A Taste of Spring: A Fifties Blouse
So, as you may not know, I work in an office most days. While I can get away with some fun pieces on the weekends, I tend to dress pretty conservatively for work. Usually this means a combination of a button down blouse and a skirt, which is my go to look for work. (This… Continue reading A 40s Winter Office Look – A New Twist on an Old Favorite

Happy belated 4th of July! I’m back and posting on Tuesdays again! I couldn’t wait to post this outfit until Thursday, but I have a lot of great ideas and wonderful things to share with you in the coming weeks! But here’s what I wore on Independence Day!
Again, it’s been a busy week for me over in real-life-world! My husband and I are one day away from completing our move and being established completely in our new apartment! There are currently boxes all over the place, which has made everything (including getting dressed) that much more hectic. On top of that, we’ve… Continue reading Busy Days in the Life and Times
Two weeks ago my husband and I were visiting his parents in Iowa. We were there for a specific reason, along with visiting, but we managed to squeeze in some shopping and outfit picture taking. The theme? Windmills, of course!
