First up, the tips I use for a clean closet each fall season!

Easy Ways to Mix Prints and Mix Patterns

Easy Ways to Mix Prints and Mix Patterns

Alright....so....before I talk endlessly about how much I love mixing prints and mixing patterns and mixing cookies....oops, wrong topic. I just like cookies. Anyways, I have a confession. The outfit you see in these photos, were the first two things I ever purchased on Amazon. And, I just got them this summer. From a gift card I'd had since February that every time I tried to use, I'd just get overwhelmed and leave.  But, after 4 months of very careful deliberation, I ordered these pieces, plus an additional super cute dress. So yeah. I like to take my time and be ridiculously thorough when I shop.

5 Ingredient Friday: Fresh Homemade Pico De Gallo

5 Ingredient Friday: Fresh Homemade Pico De Gallo

I'm so excited to share this lil' recipe with you all as it's one of my absolute favorites. There is nothing like fresh food, especially in summer, although I make this year round. I adapted this recipe from one I found when I was searching for a rice bowl recipe similar to a Chipotle rice bowl, AND, if you care for the whole kit-and-caboodle, I'm sharing that as well because it's so delicious. But, I would say over half the time I make the pico, I'm making it without the rice concoction, to serve as a snack for myself or friends, or to take to a party.

Small Steps to Better Confidence + the CUTEST Gingham Top for Summer!

Small Steps to Better Confidence + the CUTEST Gingham Top for Summer!

You may have seen this outfit a couple of weeks back on Instagram. So cute, right??? I will however say, I was initially kinda uncomfortable in it. Not because it was uncomfortable. But because, well, I don't wear a lot of skirts with slits up to there (I mean, who do I think I am? Angelina Jolie?). I also don't wear a lot of shirts that show my stomach (I don't have rock-hard abs afterall) all that often anymore. And yet, here I found myself at this photo-shoot wearing a skirt with a slit up to there and a top I intentionally cropped.

Basic Summer Outfit Staples to Wear Again and Again

Basic Summer Outfit Staples to Wear Again and Again

So if you're in a summer style rut, or just want to have a few go-to pieces that you can easily mix-and-match or throw on for last minute BBQ's, I've got some perfect outfit ideas for you. How absolutely adorable is this Tommy Hilfiger top from Macy's, BTW? I love the loose fit, which makes it great for a hot day, but  perfect if you love a good half-tuck or knotted look like I do. The navy stars are just-right for summer and make it so easy to coordinate with any of your favorite cutoffs or jeans.

5 Ingredient Friday: Fresh Fruit Quick Dessert or Snack Idea

5 Ingredient Friday: Fresh Fruit Quick Dessert or Snack Idea

So this first recipe, isn't really even a true "recipe," more like a snack idea that everyone loves. I never thought much about a proper name for it, but, it seems justified, so we'll just call it Mini Cheesecake Grahams. Wait, No Bake Mini Cheesecake Grahams, because I know people do a double take when they see the words "No Bake." Call me shallow, but I want my posts to get all sorts of internet attention. Obvi. In real life, I promise I'm not shallow:) Also, it might take longer to pronounce this than actually make it. Anyhoo...screenshot the below to keep this idea handy:)

Go-To Jumpsuits for Summer

Go-To Jumpsuits for Summer

Alright, so let's talk go-to summer pieces. Jumpsuits guys. That's it. Each and every summer, I gravitate to them like a bird to a nest. I found this cute peek-a-boo one at Target earlier this spring, ironically, when I was looking for nothing clothes-related. But you know, it's Target. And it's v hard to not just take a quick peak through the clothes. And then take a quick trip to the dressing room. And then rationalize why you need a new jumpsuit, where you'll wear it to and make a deal with yourself that you'll never buy another jumpsuit ever again if you get this one (which is such a lie, and I know it, but still). So, I got it. And honestly, I have worn it a multitude of places and I don't even remember the silly little whatever I actually went to Target for in the first place.

The Sweater you Need for Summer Nights

The Sweater you Need for Summer Nights

…But first, I bring you, "What to Wear on a Cool Summer Night." In about three months, I'll regurgitate this to, "What to Wear on a Warm Fall Day." Approximately five months after that, this post will become, "A Casual Spring Outfit." You might be sensing some things here: 1) I'm lazy and don't want to write any more posts that I have to, and 2) I absolutely positively ADORE versatile pieces….

Pink Pleats and Summer Plans

Pink Pleats and Summer Plans

Just when you thought you'd seen all the pink pleated skirts you were going to see from me, BAM, I'm back with another pink pleated look. I wore this skirt for a winter post - complete with a ton and a half of snow, here and just because I think pink is seasonless, I'm sure it's not the last time I'll be breaking it out.

My Favorite Bags for Summer

My Favorite Bags for Summer

I used to not really care much about my handbags. I had a couple of neutral bags that I was content with...I'd switch them out every season and all was fine. But the past few months...well...I kinda want a different bag for every outfit. No need to criticize...I don't actually have a different bag for every outfit. I just said I wanted one- that seems normal, right?

5 Ways to Break Out of Your Style Rut this Summer

5 Ways to Break Out of Your Style Rut this Summer

I love when seasons change as when the weather changes, so does everything else - clothes, makeup, routines...everything seems new! That said, there couldn't be a better time to get all sorts of crazy with your clothes. Welllll...maybe not all sorts...just some sorts (some sorts doesn't have the same ring to it though does it???). If you're looking to mix things up a bit this summer, here are a few tips to break out of any style ruts brought on by winter:
