Pattern Mixing {In the Closet}

It was bound to happen, after months of watching other bloggers do it and do it well, I’ve finally mixed my patterns! I don’t know what took me so long, I guess it was nerves. We were always taught to never ever mix florals and plaids or stripes and dots. […]

Flowers and Favorites {About Me}

Have you ever had one of those days where everything is just meh? You’re neither happy nor sad, bored nor busy? That was Friday. Until I got phone call from the florist asking if I was home to receive a delivery. What?! Who would be sending me flowers? The hubs […]
