It's here! Today is the first link-up for Common Thread Challenge. I'm excited to reveal the pieces that I've chosen to use to remix throughout my wardrobe. They look something like these but you'll see the real things throughout this month. My choices are: black skinny pants, white and black striped tee, black skater skirt, chambray shirt and mules.

Styling with Cleo Madison

Cleo Madison Stripes

Recently, I was contacted by Cleo Madison and given the opportunity to review one their pieces. I'm excited today to share the item that I received from them. Cleo Madison is the destination for cute modest clothing. Rest assured that modest doesn't mean frumpy.  Cleo Madison's idea of modest is a casual ease and definitely works with the idea of how I want to dress on the daily. One habit that I'm trying to break this season is to resist the urge to tuck in EVERYTHING. Yep, I'm a tucker! ... Continue Reading...

Summertime Shorts

I'm doing it y'all. I'm finally posting something from my closet. I haven't posted any summer looks and I personally feel as though all I've worn is workout clothes when I'm not actually sitting behind my desk at work in those dressy clothes. I was inspired when I found a new pair of shorts on clearance and I knew I had a perfect top in my closet. So there you go...enough to get me in front of the camera again. And this is the new backyard. A backyard without grass but some great plants ... Continue Reading...
