Outfit Of The Week

{Gap Dress (similar here), Vintage Chic Schooners Belt, Louis Vuitton Clutch, Steve Madden Heels, BaubleBar Earrings, Essie 'Wicked' Nail Polish}

This weekend was great - I finished my last craft fair of the year, went to two Christmas parties, did some shopping (still not finished yet), watched a few movies, baked some muffins, and finished up a new television series my husband and I recently discovered (Mr. Selfridge). To accommodate our busy schedules, we did a quick photo shoot right here in our home.

Outfit Of The Week: A Twist On The Traditional LBD

{Old Navy Coat, American Eagle Blazer, Aeropostale Turtleneck, Gap Pants, Armani Sunglasses, Steve Madden Pumps, Kate Spade purse, Kohl's Gloves} 

I do love an all black ensemble and I guess you could call it my go to look when nothing in my closet feels right. That turned out to be the case yesterday as I searched for something to pair with my new pumps. Most of my heels are more appropriate for warmer weather and Black Friday seemed like the perfect opportunity to invest in a new pair (which happen to still be on sale).

Outfit Of The Week

 {Old Navy Coat, American Eagle Dress (similar here), J.Crew Sweater, Francesca's Necklace, Gap Tights, Guess Booties, Michael Kors Purse}

Can't believe it's been about a month since my last post. Shortly after I sprained my wrist, I caught a nasty head cold that lasted over two weeks. Just about every other day I would wake up with a new symptom and the growing thought that this would never end. Thankfully, early last week I finally felt like myself again, just in time for Thanksgiving.

Outfit Of The Week

{Forever21 Top / Banana Republic Blazer / Old Navy Jeans / Kenneth Cole Sunglasses / Vintage Letisse Clutch / Steve Madden Sandals (similar here)}

I don't think an outfit is complete without a little bit of mixing and matching, it keeps things from being one dimensional. My preferred way of mixing fashion, is mixing a little bit of masculine with something feminine.

Some other ways to mix and match can include: high (expensive) and low (inexpensive), dark clothing with a pop of color, short skirts with long sleeves, dresses paired with tough ankle boots, dressy mixed with casual, and the list goes on and on.

Personally I prefer wearing pants instead of dresses, neutral colors, over brights, and flats instead of heels. But the combination of jeans and heels together is one of my all time favorites, though I don't get a reason to wear them together too often. Feeling inspired by my recent sprained wrist (splint not shown), I decided to keep Sunday's outfit simple with jeans an a blazer.

At Home In The Whole Food Kitchen

Finally got my hands on Amy Chaplin's first ever cookbook! Back in March of 2013 Amy contacted me about making an apron for her to wear while shooting her first cookbook. She chose this white linen apron but with a longer hemline (33" instead of the 25.5" I typically make them at) to wear and I have been waiting patiently for her cookbook to come out ever since. 

The book itself is huge and filled with tons and tons of gorgeous pictures, most of which showcase food. But what I'm most excited about is that one single image next to the introduction of her wearing one of my Dark Plum creations. She only appears in an apron twice throughout the book and I'm happy to say (true to he word) one of those was mine.

And in case your wondering because of the above photo the exact same day I purchased the book I sprained my wrist. which made photographing these pictures a little difficult. You should be grateful to know it wasn't the size of the book that did it but an afternoon of fun throwing a kid into a pile of leaves.

Outfit Of The Week

{Armani Exchange Sunglasses / Forever21 Poncho / Gap Pants / Kat Spade bag / Elie Tahari Shoes}

Several weeks a go a girl in my youth group encouraged me to do a #ootd (outfit of the day) post for what I wear to church on Sundays. After a week or two of posting one #ootd image to instagram I'm starting to think it might not be such a bad idea to do a weekly blog post too. Plus I'm hoping it will encourage me to step up my photography, blog, and fashion game.

The location for this shoot is one of my all time favorite spots (my husband proposed to me here almost 7 years ago Nov. 07) so it seemed fitting to start this new adventure here.
