Weekly Wardrobe and a Blog Design Update!

Sweater: J.Crew/Similar
Dress: Anthropologie/Similar
Tights: Nordstrom
Shoes: ModCloth

Well, I don't know about you guys, but I had a lovely weekend! A long weekend, in fact, because I had four dreamy days off!

Overall, it was a super solid long weekend. I spent Thanksgiving with my family on Thursday, and got together with them again on Friday to celebrate my mama's birthday. We went and saw Catching Fire together and loved it! Have any of you guys seen it yet?

I also worked on some projects, hung out with some friends, and did some serious blog work this weekend. I got a chance to catch up on quite a few things I'd fallen behind on, including updating my blog design!

I'm really thrilled with the way it all came out! I've been working with my friend and co-worker, Marisol, over the past couple of months and am SO happy I asked for her help with my blog redesign! She's super talented and really made my vision come together with her beautiful graphics and lettering. I love that things now have a cleaner look, but are still really fun and whimsical. I kind of can't believe I got on with the slap-dash look I managed to whip up for as long as I did!

Fun aside, I'm kind of dreading the next few weeks. This week begins the holiday madness at my work, so there's going to be lots and lots of overtime. It will be great to have the extra cash, but man, I know I'm going to be beat by the time Christmas rolls around.

Despite all of that, I'm still really excited about the holidays. I'm definitely getting into full on gifting mode, and also totally impulse bought the most adorable little pink tinsel Christmas tree from Target on Sunday. It was too cute to pass up! The cats seem to be big fans, too, since they keep gnawing on it. Sheesh.

Well, that's all for now! How was your weekend?

Til next time!

  1. I love your hair! I've tried to do that to mine sooo many times, but it always seems to fail. Good luck with your overtime! Luckily we grocery stores don't get as hectic as other retailers, otherwise I might lose my mind before Christmas!

    1. Thanks, Kalie! I'm kind of obsessed with wearing it this way right now since I finally figured it out. I've discovered that the key for me is just lots of bobby pins. I'm glad to hear things won't get to crazy for you! Hopefully they won't get too out of control for me!

  2. staaaahp with the being so cute (but really, don't stop)! i LOVE your redesign. it perfectly fits your style and your content. also, at first i thought your tights were ombre because your glasses are ombre. either way, you do monochromatic so well.

    1. Haha, thanks Nicole! I'm glad you like the new design! I'm pretty thrilled with it, myself! Ombre tights to match my glasses would be too cool! Must. Find. Now!

  4. This outfit is ADORABLE! And I LOVE your hair like this. And your new blog design is so cute and perfect! Of course, I liked your old one, too. I really should work with someone to actually design my blog, but I'm too... lazy? Haha!
    Ah, yeah, Christmas madness has started with my work, too; it's less stressful since I work from home, but oh my goodness the amount of coupon editing and emails we get now is ridiculous!
    I hope you have a good day!

    1. Thank you so much, Kristina! I've been obsessed with wearing my hair like this lately. I'm glad you like the new design! I often get stubborn and want to figure everything out myself, but I'm really happy to have gotten help from my lovely friend, Marisol, on this new blog design. It's leaps and bounds better than anything I could have done on my own! Sorry to hear you're dealing with the Christmas madness, too! Hopefully it will pass quicker than we know it and all of a sudden we'll both be having nice relaxing holidays with our families!

  7. I REALLY, really like the new blog look!
    And your outfit is super cute, I love your hair-do ;)

    Is really does sound like a great weekend you had. We celebrated my sister's birthday on Friday too, but I have never watched nor read any of the Hunger Games, I've heard that it's almost identical to the Running Man from the 80's...
    It'll be crazy busy at the bakery too during this holiday season. Good luck at work! :)

    1. Thank you! It's definitely hard to find the time during the Christmas madness! Fortunately, this had been in the works for a while, so it was all about just uploading it and formatting everything. I'm glad to have the change in place in time for the holidays!

    1. Thank you! It is pretty cute, but the cats are convinced it's a giant cat toy... Hopefully it will make an appearance on the blog or on instagram before they destroy it!
