Preppy Blue Stripes

Hi Lovelies!

I would say happy Monday, but I am just not feeling Monday this week. Not like I am ever overjoyed with excitement for Monday, but this week seems especially yucky. The weekend just went by too quickly, and it was a beautiful/relaxing one. This was my Sunday Funday outfit yesterday and I love it, though I have to say it is getting a little too hot for pants. I’m going to have to throw on my white shorts or a white skirt with this one next time.

Pastels From Winter To Spring

Hi Lovelies! One of my favorite 2013 trends was by far pastels. I am so excited that I am still seeing them everywhere I shop, it gives me so much hope that they are here to stay!  PS: I cannot believe that I am already seeing spring lines going out at every store I walk into! I am so pumped, since I absolutely hate winter and cannot wait for my Texas spring:)

These light colors are great all year round and today I wanted to show you a few cute options for wearing pastels through winter and into spring. Pastels for winter and spring

I don’t think we Texans will be needing our winter clothes for too much longer, but for all of you Northern ladies out there, we have the winter pastel outfit. A nice warm sweater with skinnies and some adorable mint shoes to top it all off!

And for you Texas ladies who had a 65 degree day yesterday <woot woot>…here is my spring version! This shirt is so comfy and they have a whole bunch of different colors. It’s a nice alternative to the regular denim chambray top.

The kicker in these outfits for me really is the shoes. They are by Yellowbox and I think they are just the cutest. I have gotten so many compliments on them already and I’ve only worn them once or twice. My Mom, sisters and I have been huge Yellowbox sandal fans for years and I had NO idea Yellowbox even made flats until recently! New obsession found.

How will you be wearing pastels in 2014?

Until tomorrow…

Hi Lovelies!

I am the type of person who doesn’t like to be myself. Even if Wes is in the other room working on something and I am watching TV, it’s just nice to have someone there, it feels less lonely. So, when he bought a plane ticket to Michigan to see his friends for 5 days, I was less than excited to spend those 5 days at home, alone.

Luckily for me my parents decided that they needed to see my uncle’s new farm that same weekend! They came down late Friday night and stayed Saturday night after our adventure to the farm and left very early Sunday morning. This left me with Thursday night, most of Friday night, Sunday, and Monday all to myself. The first night, I will admit, I was lonely. Sophie and I cuddled up and watched Harry Potter in bed. Every creaky noise I heard freaked me out and I slept with the TV on all night. I did not like it. Friday and Saturday night my parents were here with me so I didn’t feel so alone. But, by late Sunday night I had kind of settled in to the quiet. I may have even learned a little bit about myself…maybe being alone wasn’t nearly as bad as I had imagined.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I am SO glad I have a husband. It’s nice to have someone to come home to after a hard days work and to have someone to cuddle up with to watch a movie. It’s nice to fall asleep beside the one you love…but I did enjoy a little alone time. As much as I thought I hated it, it can actually be a little bit nice. I read, I watched what I wanted to on TV, I went to sleep when I wanted to, I listened to my country music and I listened to it loudly…I got to have a little me time. I even took some blog pictures of myself (see above)….I kind of had the single girl life for a couple of days.

I guess the moral of my story is that being alone can seem scary, but I think that every once in a while it is good for you. I had a chance to really think about things and do things that I like, but don’t always do when there are people there. I felt “free as a bird”, if you will. (See how I tied that in there? That whole bird thing? Like the shirt….(PS: I also wore this shirt here in an entirely different way….)

Well, as free as I might have felt, I am still SO glad Wes came home last night. It’s nice to have another person around…Are you the type who always has to be around someone or do you enjoy your alone time?

Until tomorrow…
