New Site!


I’ve switched over to Blogger, so the new site is now:

Head over there now to see a new Kate Spade post and an updated version of yesterday’s post!

Columbus Day Shopping

Just cause I didn’t have the day off for Columbus Day didn’t mean I wasn’t going to take full advantage of all of the sales! I limited myself to J.Crew Factory (50% off everything!) and American Eagle Outfitters (40% off of everything) since there had been some things on both sites that I had been staring at. I’m not sure what I’ll end up keeping, but I can’t wait to get the packages in the mail!

Quick Morning Post

Happy Monday!
(Don’t worry, it’s almost the weekend again, right?)

Just wanted to share this quick outfit from earlier in September, when it was still super warm. I stumbled across this picture and I really liked the outfit so I figured I would share! Also, for the record, I was wearing these with black pumps, but since I keep them at work, I can never get them in a picture in the morning.

After an odd weekend, time to settle in and watch the Packers game! Go Pack Go!


Saturday’s Something Good

<<Apparently this didn’t post yesterday….so here it is now>>

This risotto recipe. So delicious.

My life in a buzzfeed list. They’ve been posting a lot of these lately that are too applicable to my life.

My co-worker and I were cracking up over this list of shutdown pick up lines the other day.

This watch from Urban Outfitters. I’m not really an Urban Outfitters person (or a watch person for that matter), but I could make an exception for this watch.

My cousin texted me this link of a corgi the other day. So adorable. Can’t stop watching.

Everything Gillian Flynn. Her novels are so dark and twisted, but I can’t lie, they hook me really quickly.

2013 World Gymnastics Championships is being broadcast this weekend. Hellloooooooo couch.

And finally, I’ve decided to start highlighting some of my favorite blogs here to share with you!

First off: Merrick’s Art. Merrick’s blog was probably one of the first blogs I started reading (thanks to a pin of hers I found on Pinterest!) and I’m so happy I found it. I love her fashion sense and the adorable pictures of her sons that she posts. ALSO, her blog led me to her two sisters’ blogs (Janssen and Landen), but I’ll get to those another time!

Fall Jackets!

After realizing that my Northface is 6 years old and falling apart, I’ve decided that it’s time to get a new fall jacket. Here’s what I’ve found so far!

fall jackets

Coffee Shop jacket / Mossimo vegan leather moto jacket / Old Navy jacket
Merona puffer jacket / American Eagle Outfitters cream jacket / American Eagle Outfitters jacket /

I think I’m leaning towards the Mossimo jacket right now.
Any suggestions?

Hey, look at that! Under $200. While I haven’t established a firm budget right now, I’ve been aiming for around $200 right now, I’m going to use these posts to help try to figure out a budget for next year and see if it makes more sense to do a monthly budget or a singular amount for the entire year. Since it looks like I spend around $200 a month so far, that should help in shaping my budget for the future. Also, I need to figure out how I want to include accessories into this. I don’t buy them as often, but should I count them?
