January Sales Try-On, Featuring Hits & Misses

I'm fortunate enough that I get to live in the same town as my mom. And even luckier that we enjoy each other's company. My momma and I frequently gather for a gals morning. Usually, this can consist of anything from shopping and manicures to exercising. This past weekend we took a trip to our  "local" mall, an hour away (I mostly shop online based on our proximity to my favorite stores) and did some browsing. While shopping, we had a lot of fun scouring the stores for new style inspiration. We looked for unique pieces or trends to add to our current wardrobe. While also searching for new ways that we can create new looks of our favorite pieces already in our closets.

Since my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale First Impressions post was such a hit, along with my try-on mirror pics, I've decided to listen. So today's post is featuring all the things that caught my eye from our recent shopping adventure that I tried on & wanted to share my thoughts with Y'all. Be sure to leave a message letting me know what you thought of this style blog post & if you're buying, what items?

the boots you NEED for winter

Good morning. In an effort to #keepitreal with Y’all, I have to be honest… I was a little concerned about getting today’s post out on time. Which for me meant, if the post didn’t go live on Monday, I would be behind on my new year’s resolution or commitment to myself (and to all of you) that I was going to post every Monday. I’m not always inspired, and sometimes I struggle even to get started, whether it be picking out the day’s outfit or writing a blog post. Sometimes I’m just entirely that girl standing in my closet saying “I have nothing to wear.”


So, as a result, instead of getting frustrated or even stressed, which was something that I usually allow myself to get carried away with when I need the creative juices to flow, I’ve been trying to get up, get moving and do something.

Coffee Hour with Lo, Taking a look at the Blog's Yearly Review

It's hard to believe that just 3 years ago, B gifted me a camera and blogging for dummies book for Christmas, and I started the blog right then and there. We ran outside to snap a quick photo, which made the blog here. As I reflect back, I wish I had more confidence (still working on it) to share the blog with friends and family. On the one hand, I totally went for it. I didn't have any experience with a blog or HTML codes. I didn't even have a LiketoKnow.It account. I followed a few bloggers and had a deep love of passion.
On the other hand, It took months for me even to tell my friends I had created one and I'm still hesitant to say to people now. I think the fear comes from "pushing" the blog on someone. However; one of my goals for 2019 is to get over that fear! I have a blog, obviously. So, this is going to be the year for owning it!

Today, we are taking a look back at your favorite posts from 2018 on Instagram and the Blog. Additionally, I'll be sharing all my plans and goals for the upcoming 2019 year. So settle in and let's take a trip down memory lane.

an honest review of making, maintaining, and achieving your New Year's Resolutions

Good morning and welcome back! I took a quick break from the blog during last week to spend some QT (quality time) with both our families and friends. And, as a result, I have a lot of new ideas as we move into 2019 and I can't wait to start to share them all with you today.

Today's post is a wee bit long, so be sure to grab a cup of your favorite tea or coffee, cozy up with a blanket, and enjoy!

pink velvet skirt

I can't believe the weekend is almost here! I'm looking forward to having a few days off before Christmas Eve and Christmas to relax. As part of B's "paper" anniversary gift, I gifted him a series of 12 different date cards. One for each month, this month is dinner at the Seaport (where we got married) followed by a drive around to view Christmas Lights. B is looking forward to cashing in on this date card tonight. He wanted too last night, but I wanted to wrap the final gifts that arrived in the mail last night. 

Are you a wrap as you go type of person (i.e., buy a gift, wrap the gift) or do you wait until all have been purchased and then wrap all at once?
