Polka Dot Tights
I picked up a pair of polka dot tights this fall and they have been a favorite to wear with fancier skirts and dresses. I’ve been looking for a way to wear them with casual looks and Jentine from My Edit nailed this one. Plaid shirt. Silk scarf. Blazer. Shorts. Boots. Knee-high socks. Done. via: My Edit
The long drive from Texas to Chicago (or any road trip) is ALWAYS worth it when you have friends to visit in cities along the way. After great visits in Dallas, Little Rock, and Memphis, I’m arriving in Nashville this morning and am looking forward to a few wonderful days before making the final leg of my trip home on Saturday.

Memories from the Christmas card photo shoot...
Every year my mom would dress my sisters and I up in our (always somewhat matching) Christmas outfits to take the annual family Christmas card photo.

I love to decorate and often think about...
I’ve never spent this much consecutive amount of time in the library. In fact my library visits this whole semester haven’t even totaled the hours I have spent here in the past few days (I do study, just at more fun places). The flourescent lights help me forget that it’s 2 am, 4 am, 6 am outside. The days are beginning to blend into one another and I find myself going to bed at...
And once you live a good story, you get a taste for a kind of meaning in life,...– A Million Miles in a Thousand Years by Donald Miller One of my favorite quotes in one of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors.
When I got an iPhone back in September, I was tricked. The AT&T employee who helped me in the store convinced me that I needed a Ballistic case. I’m not even that clumsy, I swear, she just got me worried that I was going to drop it and break the screen, so I went with the 2-layer case similar to an Otterbox for the 3. Since September my phone has received the loving nickname of...
