How to Style a Plaid "Caddyshack" Jacket

how to style plaid jacket

Okay, so my mom asked me the other day - “Would you really wear a plaid blazer (like the one I shared in a post a few weeks ago)?”  And, my answer was “yes”.  There is something about a “fun” blazer that I am drawn to. I like the look of it with jeans.  It’s both classic and fun.  Now, this plaid one may be a little “wild” and kind of reminds me of Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack - but there is something that I am drawn to, which is totally opposite of my "grunge-influence" style influence and wanting to wear my hiking boots and black beanie. 

 Does anyone pull from a wide range of style influences that are at opposite ends of the spectrum? 

If you are looking for a blazer - here are a few of my more traditional picks - like this classic black and white windowpane one or this bold red one (that is 40% off).

Stackable rings are a big trend - and I like these.

Did you know in addition to Gucci belts - there are rings, too?

I really like this plaid blazer that is 40% off.

If you suffer from the occasional face break-out (acne) - this stuff is amazing!!!

Have you seen this retro stand mixer - or the toaster!

This would make a great summer work blouse.

This would make a really cute beach cover up and it’s 40% off.

Also, in case you missed it - I shared some of my spring picks from LOFT yesterday HERE.

My Favorite Cardigan + Leopard Print Flats

spring outfit sahm


I am not one to talk about or get obsessed about the weather - but I am so ready for warmer weather. This cold (brutally cold) wind, along with bursts of snow need to go.  I would be happy with temps in the 50s.

Now, on to fashion, this cardigan is one of my favorites. I bought the first one probably 3 years ago, and each year since I buy a new colors.  I have it in beige (see me wearing it here), blush pink, and yellow (see me wearing it here).  I really like this bright neon yellow, and I am trying to decide if I should buy a new color this year.  These cardigans get me through summer.  It is cold in my office at work and hot outside - so I layer one of these cardigans over a sleeveless blouse or tank for work - and it perfect for going between inside/outside temps.  Also, I wanted to mention that those leopard flat are only $50!

Be sure to stop back tomorrow for my try-on session.  I’ll be sharing some fun spring pieces.

Lastly, this quote was at the end of one of my favorite programs.

"Fear can keep us tethered, terror can clip our wings, but trust eases pain, hope can lighten the sky, love makes us courageous, and what matters most is not whether we hide or fly - or even where journey takes us, but what guides guides us home, and where we come to land."

Weekend Favorites + Spring Picks


Hope you are having a great weekend!

We went from upper 70s on Friday to 30s on Saturday. The temperature was so crazy on Friday, though. In my town it was in the 70s, and 15 minutes away, it was 20 degrees cooler. Definitely a strange spring... with a lot of fierce wind (and really cold wind!).  I have followed Kat from Carrie Bradshaw Lied for a few years. She has the best sense of humor, and I loved Kathleen's winter style - which is how I got to know her.

Home Updates + Spring Picks Under $50

home interior design updates

I love looking through interior design pictures. Becki Owens is one of my favorites for inspiration. My husband and I are considering remodeling one of our bathrooms this summer. We are on differing opinions on the direction to take. Since I got to pick out everything for the other bathroom remodel last year - I might have to bend and give in to him on this one. But, I was so looking forward to doing a grey, marble, and brass look like this.

Friday Favorites + Most Popular Items


Happy Friday!

I thought I would change-up my style inspiration collage - and I really like how it turned out.  It actually made me smile :) I follow Marissa Webb both because I love her innovative fashion design aesthetic, and her style inspiration. She also has some great quotes (like the two I included).   I also love LolaRioStyle - and her grey wash jeans.  If I could find a pair in that exact wash that I liked the fit of (like the right high rise, and not too high or low - which is always the issue) - I would buy them in an instant - but I am still looking.  If you have any suggestions, leave me a comment.

(On a personal note, I would like to know why when I put on these white boots, similar to the ones pictured above - I don't feel as cool as that picture, when I look in the mirror. Anyone else feel that way when you re-create a look?)

Mother’s Day Gift Idea + Tweed Jacket Look

spring outfit trends


I love the look of a tweed jacket like this one that is only $60.  It is both classic and trendy. A jacket paired with jeans is the perfect look for so many occasions - and something I wear a lot. If you are thinking about getting some "slide pumps" - I recommend these, in either red or white.   And, the gold tip on the heel is a fun accent. Also, I found a really similar white tote for under $100.

If you are looking for gift ideas, this "mom" necklace would make the perfect Mother's Day gift.

(I messed up the title and put $10 sweater, which is actually $13 - but still a great deal!)

Best White Blazer + How to Treat Others

wicker straw bag trend



“Before you judge me; make sure you are perfect.”

There has been some talk lately from fellow bloggers about unsolicited and “mean” comments.  Whether you are blogger or not, we can all probably relate to a time in our lives when we have received comments from someone that have not been nice - whether it was at our workplace, from friends, or even family.  For me, I seem to be on the receiving end of continual unsolicited "mean" comments from someone I work with - that are hurtful and are upsetting.

We are all unique and special people, with our own talents, abilities, and personalities, which means no one else is like us - and another person is not going to think or do the same as us.  Just because someone has a different idea - it doesn't mean we should get mad at them.

Rather than judge or be critical - take a step back - and think...  "If you can’t be kind; be quiet."

About this look... this white blazer is only $50 - and the white mules (that also come in pink and black) are only $18!

The Cutest Ruffle Top for Spring

spring trends 2018

Ah, what a day yesterday.  It was one issue after the next.  Do you ever have those days? (And, it went all the way to the end of the night when I went to publish this post for today - and instead of fixing a problem, I accidentally deleted the entire post - and had to start over!)

If you looked at my post yesterday, you may have noticed that some of the links were not working. Instead of going to the exact product, many links were going to the German home page, rather than the US one. They finally got fixed late in the day, so here are the links if you wanted to check out - the grey swing cardigan was that was on sale for $10 - or the linen tee was only $18. (And, I have included the others under My Finds & Deals below.)
