Hello Again!

05 February 2015

Hello Again! It's been such a long time since I did a blog post but I did say that I would be back. So here I am!! So many wonderful things have happened these last few months since I've been m.i.a. If you haven't noticed from the picture above, I was preggos and gave birth to the most amazing and beautiful little girl, Kennedy Gabrielle on January 18th. I'm currently on maternity leave and enjoying every second I get to spend with this amazing little person that my husband and I created.

My intentions were to continue blogging and share my journey with dressing my bump but clearly that did not happen. These pictures were the only blog worthy photos I took during my entire pregnancy, I was about 29 weeks here. Shame on me, I know! The truth is I was unbelievably tired throughout my whole pregnancy. I also started a new teaching job in September with a two hour commute both ways which really made it difficult for a preggo gal to then come home to take pics. Not to mention the all day nausea I experienced for the first five months.

But now, I am so happy to be back!! I will be posting pictures from my baby shower and a few pictures of my baby girl soon! I will also start outfit posting again, yay!!

A Wedding & farewell, for now

30 June 2014

Outfit Details:
Dress: Jack by BB Dakota / Belt: J Crew /  Bracelets: J Crew & J Crew Factory / Clutch: Target /
Heels: Ralph Lauren

Hi there! It's been so long! Thank you to everyone that have continued to check in despite my lack of posts. The truth is, I've been so busy with work and lesson planning that I haven't had much time for any extra curricular activities. This summer, I've decided to spend as much quality time with my hubby as I can, so our weekends have been less about taking blog pics and more about going out to brunches and picnics. 
I just wanted to pop in to let everyone know that I will be back but have just decided to take a little blog break. 

But not without a quick outfit post, of course! Last weekend, I went to the wedding of one of my dear friends and had a blast! It was a beautiful summer wedding and I chose to wear this gorgeous maxi dress I found online from Bloomingdale's. I must admit that I was very nervous about this purchase and even purchased a much more expensive dress just in case. I was nervous about the quality (the price was so awesome that I wondered if there was a catch) and whether it would be formal enough for a wedding. But it turned out to be perfect for a summer day wedding. The dress was a little big so I cinched it at the waist and added a few simple accessories. I received tons of compliments and I was super comfortable! The more expensive dress was not as flattering and very uncomfortable. It was promptly returned.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far. Speak to ya soon!!

By the Tracks: Wardrobe Remix

06 April 2014

Outfit Details:
Shirt: Target / Pants: J Crew Factory / Purse: Coach / Flats: J Crew / Necklace: J Crew Factory

Hi everyone! I'm back to remix my polka dot cords with a Spring twist. Previously, I featured it with a sweater and bright flats here. I love these pants and really wanted to make it work for Spring. I'm just not ready to give them up yet. So, I was really excited to find this striped tee at Target the other day for $9. As you know, I can't pass up a striped tee but I did stop myself at purchasing just one. I really love the color and pattern combo of this outfit, although my hubby declared that I did not match. What does he know anyway?

Spring Wishlist

Spring Wishlist


Hi everyone!! I can't believe it's been so long since my last blog post. What have I been doing you ask? Absolutely nothing; I just decided to unplug for a while. It's been a nice break but now I'm happy to be back to chat with you all.

Anyhoo, I've had a strong urge to do a little Spring shopping and these pieces from J Crew Factory have definitely caught my eye. You can create many different looks with these versatile pieces. But I'm really trying hard to not shop and if I buy another striped shirt my hubby just may kill me. So far, I've purchased the tote and I would really like to purchase the vest and floral scarf. I see these being staples in my Spring wardrobe.

Layering 101

Layering 101

Anyone who knows me knows I love to layer. I rarely wear just one piece unless it's the summertime and it's 90 degrees out. So, I thought I would create a post on how I like to layer my pieces.

Look 1:
Look 1 features three layers. I love the look of layering a casual dress over a button up shirt. I paired a black & white striped dress over a chambray shirt and  topped the look with a herringbone vest. A pair of tights and booties complete the look.

Look 2:
Look 2 features a striped sweater over a chambray shirt and black skinny jeans. This is my go to look during the Winter. I often will swap out jeans for skinny pants or cords for a work appropriate look. Adding a statement necklace makes the look more interesting and a little dressy too.

Look 3: 
Look 3 is the easiest look to create and one of my favorites. I own very similar pieces in my closet and I wear this look all the time in the Spring. You can upgrade a simple tee and jeans outfit by adding a lightweight jacket and a multicolored scarf. One of my favorite jackets is my army green jacket which I wear with pretty much everything. Wearing a floral scarf ties the look and colors together.

Striped Sleeves

02 March 2014

Outfit Details:
Shirt: J Crew / Jeans: Old Navy / Heels: Banana Republic / Bag: Cole Haan / Necklace: J Crew

Hi!! Yup, these are the same pair of jeans and heels from my previous outfit post! I love to pair simple t-shirts with jeans and heels. As you know, I am obsessed with stripes! I was so excited when I found this solid navy t-shirt with stripes on the sleeves. Since I didn't own anything like it, I had to buy it to add to my stripes collection. Adding a  necklace brings the perfect amount of sparkle to the outfit.
