the weather has been absolutely unpredictable in iowa. it goes from 90° & sunny to 65° & rainy in no time at all. so dressing in layers is essential. you never know when you’re going to need to strip down. or cover up! my go to is always a blazer. it dresses up the simplest of ensembles. and provides stylish warmth.

when I saw this cynthia rowley black & white tweed blazer at TJ Maxx, I may have screamed. classic & neutral, with endless possibilities. I knew I could pair it with any color pants. or any color top.

and even dared to pair it with leopard-print flats.

[it was really, really bright that day. see squinted eyes].

let’s hope warm, sunny weather is right around the corner.

cheers to a new week!

happy monday.


I went to sears …

friendly reminder: this is a judge-free zone.

now that that’s out of the way.. I’ll begin.

the other day, while at the mall, I begged to go into Sears. I wanted to take a peek at what the Kardashian Kollection was all about. [what can I say, I’m a curious human]. I drug with me my extremely reluctant companions. I am here to report: I was pleasantly surprised. [& so were they]. not only did many, many pieces catch my eye, BUT I was also greeted with 60-75% off. can’t beat that.

hello new tank top; that is long enough to cover my tush [which I love].

it has a fun back. & comes in yellow too. {in the city cami}

then there was …

blazers. & polka dots. & more deals. oh my!

meet my new black & white {polka dot blazer}. originally $99, got it for less than $40.

[I wore this blazer on my birthday, w/ red jeans. pictures to come!]

also, fun fact about me – I love tee-shirts. I pretty much own every single color of v-neck cotton tee Target has ever produced. & love to live in them! they can be dressed up with a cute blazer, or jewelry, or tucked with a leopard belt.

my point: the kardashian kollection officially produces my new favorite tee.

it’s the {boyfriend hi-lo tee}. I got it in white. but it also comes in green & white, heather grey, and spanish pink. to be honest, it’s a bit out of my “tee shirt” price range, but luckily it was on sale. [$48 vs. $17.49]. not only is it sleep-worthy soft, but it’s shorter in the front & longer in the back. perfect for throwing on with some leggings and you’re ready for the day!

moral of the story – don’t judge a book by it’s TV show ;)


happy thursday evening friends.
