Must Have: Loft


I'm not sure when it happened, but I basically only want to buy pants at Loft now. Part of it is style, but the other part is that they carry petite styles in the store. I don't have time to be ordering pants online anymore and I am sick and tired of tailoring every single pair of pants I buy.

After deciding I needed some new work pants and riding out a month long spending fast, I swung by Loft and came home with these:

Essential Skinny Ankle Pants in Marisa Fit

A few more marisa fit pants I have my eye on: petalwork | rust pink | foulard

They fit perfectly. They are tailored, but not too tight, and they move like a dream. I bought a pair in navy but am seriously considering picking up another pair in black. They are currently $20 off regular price!

Must Have: Perfect Curvy Petite Skinny Jeans


I have been on the hunt for the perfect dark wash petite skinny jeans for an eternity. I don't think I have ever been able to just buy a pair that didn't need some sort of alteration. And then I found these:

Petite Curvy High Waist Skinny Jeans - $70 ($42 with the current 40% off promo)

I have worn them about 12 times in two weeks. They are so perfect, 

I found a few other things that I'm loving at LOFT right now:

Blocked Merino Wool Jacket
Lace Sleeve Tee (on sale)
Roped Crystal Statement Necklace
Drapey Split Neck Blouse
Curvy High Waist Sailor Pencil Skirt

House Tour: 625 West


I promised to post a house tour months ago. And then the house sale got complicated. Super complicated. And I just couldn't find the mental energy to post about our house that had "sold so quickly" when the entire thing seemed to be crumbling under my feet. It only took 5 good offers and 3 different contracts to get this house sold. I loved this house so much but by the end of it, I couldn't even look at it anymore. The process of selling it began to feel like an active betrayal. "I loved you so much! I put my blood sweat and tears into you. Why are you doing this to me!?" Which sounds completely insane. But that's the thing, you guys. Selling a house makes me insane. They can pull my corpse out of the next house when I am dead and gone. So, many months later, here is the house tour. There were many projects I hoped to complete and didn't get to, but I am incredibly proud of the things we accomplished. [...]

Inspired: J.Crew Factory Looks for Fall


Some of my favorite fashion comes at the transition of seasons. I love how cozy a sweater feels after the leaves begin to fall and how great a new pair of boots are just as it starts to snow. I am getting jazzed for cold weather fashion. After two long years in the land without seasons, I am still excited that I actually get to experience fall and winter. Don't take the seasons for granted, kids.

I am especially loving that toggle coat, printed dress, and fabulous gold cap toe pumps.

Spied: Stripe Panel Skirt


Several months ago, when I had just had a baby but I still looked pregnant, I got rid of a lot of my skirts thinking that I would never fit into them again. (At the time I could only fit into my husband's t-shirts and maternity yoga pants, so my clothing prospects looked pretty bleak.)Fast forward to today, and I have almost nothing to wear to church. Every week I look in my closet and hope some new, appropriate, nursing-friendly outfit has found its way inside, but I end up cycling through the same one skirt and one maxi dress I own Sunday after Sunday. It's safe to say that it wouldn't hurt for me to have a few more skirts in my wardrobe.I found this one (on sale!) and absolutely love it. The pattern is flattering and interesting, the colors are incredibly versatile, and overall it feels fresh.JOA Panel Skirt, $44.97Here are a few more skirts I wouldn't mind owning, all under $50:floral rose print || textured botanical print || blue floral printcolorblock skirt || eyelash lace panel skirt || stripe skirt || modern pencil skirtmidi vintage skirt || woven midi skirt in crepe || full skirt in indigoIs it something you would wear? I almost never wear skirts or dresses during the week, so I have a hard time spending money on them, but tell me this - how many church outfits do you own? How many would you like to own? For me, two is most definitely not enough.By fashion contributor Mary.[...]
