If an outfit could sum up last week's mood...this would be it. Kinda under the weather but wanting to appear pulled together. You could officially say preschool germ season is in full swing. Mama got her fill last week. Just to be able to taste coffee again seems like a luxury!
Let's talk about details, shall we? Because when you're in a rut...the details get you by! This bracelet lends just a hint of subtle pastel pop to my monochrome attire. It's also great for added texture!
If there's one die-hard sartorial rule I live by...it's always wear great shoes. They can transform any outfit. Even if you have a raw nose and kleenex spewing out of your pockets. Pretty right?
Since I'm from Chicago, it seemed only fitting that I break down and get a jacket for my lobes. An ear jacket that is! These Queenie Ear Jackets are such a conversation starter. I wore them two days in a row!
Snag both my earrings and bracelet from Cherrypick! It's the most adorable accessory site. Use my promo code 101THINGSILOVE15 and take 15% off your entire order!
There you have it...how to get by with a severe sinus infection. As they say...fake it till ya make it! Happy Monday babes! Only 5 more days until we can exhale again...

The black and white phase continues. It's just SO easy to get dressed. I know you all discovered this before me so please forgive. This was yesterday's shoot outfit for a day of schlepping without sacrificing chic.
Monday...we meet again! Hi friends! Back at it again after a busy weekend. I think we are all feeling the same, right? It was full but it was so great. Mom + Dad got a little date night fun in and we pretty much laid around all Sunday. Okay, that was me. I laid around all Saturday. #truth
When you look at me, you probably thing "DANGER." I know. I totally get it. Suburban mom in black. Watch out!
In all honesty, I love an all black ensembles. It's the young girl longing to be a New Yorker in me that never quite dissolved. Coulda, shoulda, woulda right? It's cool.
Greetings! Long time no write or at least it feels like it. Are you guys entering Thanksgiving mode? I feel like we just stored all the pumpkin goodies and I am already seeing Christmas commercials. Heaven help me!
This is a Friday dress. No muss, no fuss. And velvet is right on trend at the moment. Who knew?
No, I actually totally knew and have been hesitant to jump back onto the velvet train, however, when I saw this dress - it was a non-starter.
Attending a college football game 17 years after the fact is a completely different experience. Dare I say - I felt old but I was really glad to be through all the trials and tribulations of my 20's.
My husband and I attended the Iowa/Northwestern game with friends this past weekend and I joked that this was my tailgating attire. It may not have been school gear but I did represent in t-shirt colors!
There's something about a crisp, cold morning that I really love. I think it makes coffee taste that much better. Just a theory I have. By noon, the sun has burned off and what you get is the perfect Fall day that does not necessitate a jacket. My favorite!
I am mourning the loss of another weekend. I feel like October is flying by so quickly. It's insane. From here on out we are going to try and cram as much pumpkin into our schedule as possible. I will admit...the weather has been hovering at this perfect 70ish mark which makes outfit prepping kinda fun still. Not quite in layers but chilly at night.
I'm still feeling the black but this time with a pop of PINK! My all time favorite color. My girls ask me weekly what my favorite color is and every week I tell them the same response - PINK, ALWAYS PINK! They must be really bored with dear old mom.
It's been a dark week already. Hard to lift the cobwebs. I'm on a mission to find some goodness in this world. Luckily that commodity is free with the assistance of two little girls. The best things in life ARE free, indeed.
