fashion finds part two

A few weeks ago I (Meredith) posted some fashion finds that I was loving. Well, I am back with an update of what I actually bought. Keep in mind that I had a tiny budget so I wasn’t able to get everything off my list but I did manage to get some similar jeans, a crew neck sweater, a sleeveless top, and a cardigan. Somehow, I have managed not to own a cardigan for the past few years. I am not sure how I have gotten through so I had to use a little of my budget to remedy this problem. Seriously, best decision ever. I got it about two weeks ago and have worn it almost every day. Hubs is starting to ask me, “Are you sure that is what you want to wear today?” I think he is getting a little concerned that I am going to replace my entire wardrobe with cardigans. Don’t worry, I’m not that addicted!

Here is what I bought-

One thing I have learned from my shopping this month is that I am HORRIBLE at buying accessories. I can never seem to find shoes or jewelry that I 1) love or 2) think will go with things I already own or 3) think I can pull off. Next time I have a little extra room in the budget for clothes those are the things I will focus on. Any suggestions for inexpensive places to get cute shoes, jewelry, or clothes? Let us know! We are in need to some style help and would welcome any advice you have. By we I mean me, Jenna and Madeline both have style in spades.

Help a girl out and let me know where you get your best fashion finds!

Enjoy this gorgeous fall day & stay merry!



the makings of a great weekday

Y’all today is one of those weekdays that is going to be a bit challenging. I am running on a few hours of sleep and my to-do list is overflowing with a ton of items including fun gems like paying the bills and updating the budget.

To combat my weekday blues I created a list of the makings for a great day. These are things that always make me feel better, no matter how boring, hard, or “adult” my day is!





1. Cute mugs and great coffee

2. Smitten Kitchen cookbook. You will be drooling by page 10.

3. Adorable and affordable clothes. This is my summer wardrobe. You can find the pieces here, here, here, and here

4. Great music by some of my favorite men- NEEDTOBREATHE. Roll down the windows and rock out

5. Yummy cocktails. Hubs is a bit of a mixologist so he is always willing to whip me up something delicious to drink. Here’s the recipe¬†for a pink lemonade margarita.

6. New Girl. Get ready to laugh
