    Shop Your Closet

    Shop your closet and create new outfits! Styling outfits is one of my favorite things to do. I love to find pieces that go together. I’ve been known to say “I like my money where I can see it-in my closet”. Which is great, except I also really like to save money. One thing I’ve gotten a lot better at this year is styling outfits from my closet. The idea behind these posts is that you can see what I would mix and match in my closet to make different outfits. I include prices in posts like these so that if you wanted to shop, you’re not blindsided when you…

    Last Minute Gift Guides

    The last minute gift guides are here! Hi y’all, Just like you I’m not immune to shopping at the last minute for holiday gifts. I try and start my holiday shopping early; however, it never fails me that I will forget something. I love shopping, that is definitely no secret. What a lot of people don’t know is I actually love shopping for other people more than I like shopping for myself.

    Favorite Spring/Summer Shoes

    Hi y’all, I will be the first person to say I have horrible feet! I have something called claw toes and they can be extremely painful. I actually had surgery on them when I was little because they were so painful, I refused to walk. We’re getting to the point again where they are painful, but I am trying to not have any surgeries until I’m done with grad school. I’ve also injured my feet pretty badly in the past. I’ve sprained my foot multiple times. I’ve been on crutches, in a walking boot, and received 3 months of physical therapy. Needless to say, I try my best to take…
