Brooches are forever my fave way to finish off an outfit.
When it comes to fashion, rules have changed dramatically over the last decade. Mix black and brown. Don’t be afraid to wear what makes you feel comfortable. Athletic wear can be chic & socially acceptable in public (hello athleisure). Peep toed shoes in the fall? No problem, just add wooly socks! And white– it’s A-Ok to wear 12 months of the year– as long as it’s weather appropriate.
In fact, I believe fashion rules are actually made to be broken. The industry thrives off of it. If no one ever broke fashion rules we would still be dressing in robes and sandals like Noah. A robe sounds real comfy right now, actually…
What fashion rule do you want to be the first to break? I would love to find a way to make maternity jeans more comfortable because it seems like there’s a secret rule that maternity jeans have to be uncomfortable/not stay up. Is there a trend you want to try, but you’re afraid someone will think you’re not dressing your age? Or maybe you love a certain style, but you’re afraid to change out your wardrobe.Â
Speaking of thinking, Beckett & I went to a new Bible study group this week and were challenged to start finding tangible ways to love our actual neighbors. I loved that because we don’t usually talk with ourÂ actualneighbors. I know Jesus said we need to love our neighbors, but whenever I hear sermons on that topic, it always focuses on how everyone around us is our neighbor… and I think that makes me lose sight of my physical neighbors.Â
So anyway, if you’re up for the challenge, how can you love a neighbor this week? Blouse Options: 1- FEW Moda from Saks off 5th,Â |Â 2- H&M Jacquard blouse|Â 3- Kas Saks off 5th|Â 4- Revolve|Â 5- H&M Ruffle Blouse|Â 6- H&M Bow Blouse|Â 7- Endless Rose Nordstrom Rack|

Well, if you didn’t know it before, Im obsessed with white (or off white) tops. They go with anything and are completely timeless!
Has the flu hit your household yet? Wolfie’s been under the weather lately so we have been laying low for about a week and a half. But then this morning the sun was shining and Wolfie was finally his hyper self again. Talk about mixed messages. So we decided to shower off the weekend grime and make a short trek to a place I enjoyed as a kid– Wild Rumpus Bookstore! I got a few photos of the outside so I’ll share more later. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a kids bookstore in Minneapolis that has a magical atmosphere, complete with animals running around. 🙂
I still remember the book I got there when I was about 11. It has gold binding and it is about the marriage of a certain princess Isabel from Italy. I still often think about Wild Rumpus, where tailless cats roamed free and the floorboards had been replaced by glass to see the mice beneath our feet. My one childhood visit there had such an impact on me that I thought Beckett and I needed to make it a tradition to bring Wolfgang there.
There was a book signing going on while we were there. The author of The Digger and The Flower was there, which made things hectic, but exciting nonetheless. Wolfie was most thrilled to find three new Berenstein Bears books he didn’t have yet. It’s crazy to me how much he loves those “Bear Bear” books, as he calls them. He won’t sit through a lot of shorter books, but he will sit as we read Junk Foodor Messy Room 100,000,000 times!
Now onto my latest fashion finds under $30.
Oh, and let me note for you that there are only 3 things close to $30; one’s a belt, one’s a mug, and the other is the sequin sweater. I couldn’t believe how great the prices are for all of this! As always size up if between sizes.
I am constantly thirsty and I NEVER drink enough water unless I have a water bottle with a straw. This one can be put in the dishwasher, which is really attractive to me since my last one died because I put it in the dishwasher and it melted.
I have been kinda wanting a Gucci belt for awhile, but with a price like that I cant. So I found this H&M dupe that has a similar look, but is practically 1/100 of the price. The trend will soon pass and I’ll be glad I didn’t get one, not that I could have– because it’s $550 and that could feed a small family for a month.
