It’s December already. Like, today is really December 14th. We’re only a couple of weeks from 2018. Seriously, where has the year gone? I swear it was just June a day ago.

I need these moments though.Slight anxiety and panic help me realize how precious time is and it consistently puts a fire under my tail. It’s a reminder that nothing is promised, life is short, and to always buy the shoes. As cliche as it sounds it’s true. So let’s count it down to the new year. There are about 17 days until the calendar resets, make the best of it! I know I will! Continue Reading »

Style Files: My Floral Printed Pants May Have Me Ditching Dresses (Temporarily)

Wednesday, November 22, 2017 · No Comments




True life I don’t wear pants. Like hardly ever. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve worn pants this year. Jeans and leggings don’t count. I’m talking classic slacks with a flat front, maybe a belt loop, and a tailored look.

Don’t get me wrong I like pants, but I’ve never been a pants person. Don’t know why. I tend to gravitate to dresses and skirts. I’ll throw on a pair of jeans in a heartbeat but my closet is missing a nice selection of pants.

Side-stripe pants are having a serious fashion moment and I’m here for it all. From sporty and athletic to classic and chic, trousers this season got a makeover.

Do you remember when I told you about my plans to tackle time management? Well about that. I had big plans to get on track this week and then life happened.
