I saw this sweater during a recent shopping trip and fell in love with the bows on the back. I didn't have time to try it on so I went with my usual medium petite and it is definitely a generous fit! I wish I would have gone down a size but after wearing it all weekend, I think it's evident that I'm keeping it. I decided to go casual glam with my favorite lived-in jeans and classic Chanel ballerinas. In all honesty, this was one of those weekends where I had no idea what to wear, and I always go back to simple pieces when that happens. Nate has been working crazy hours, so the last thing I want to do is fuss about getting ready during his days off. No time for that!

It's been a couple months since I last did this but here is what I'm currently...

1. Planning - A fun girl's day at Kendra Scott that my friend Gina is hosting. Two of my girlfriends are coming along and I can't wait to add a new KS piece to my collection. I'm thinking something in gold and turquoise?

2. Seeing - how I do in one of my copy editing classes. I'm working on my final exam this week, and then I'll have to wait to find out my final grade. No pressure.

3. Making - new recipes from Trader Joe's. I've gotten ideas from their website. Honestly, the easiest way to switch things up is to add new seasonings. The chile lime seasoning is a recent discovery and it's SO good on my morning eggs!

4. Pretending - I have it more together than I really do. Fake it til you make it!

5. Wearing - a standard uniform that includes my sezane bag, cozy pullover sweaters, and flats (see above). However, I have a few Spring things in mind and I can't wait to share with you what I've been eyeing. I plan on doing a Spring capsule post soon.

What are you up to lately? Tell me everything 😉


  1. this sweater is so cute and the girl's day sounds fabulous.


  2. So excited to see you this month! It's been too long! And I need to try that Chile Lime seasoning! That sounds right up my alley. I have been using their Everything but the Bagel seasoning on my eggs but I like to switch it up now and then. Also, this is a perfect no-fuss-but-polished outfit. Love outfits like this!

    1. Yes, I still love the bagel seasoning too! Every seasoning Trader Joe's makes has NOT disappointed! See you in a week :)

  3. The bow detail on the sweater is really pretty, and I like that the back isn't open like many of the bow designs are.
    I'm not up to much lately... currently just sitting at work alone, watching snow fall, wishing I had some coffee.

  4. I love your sweater and i’m jealous of your girls get together at KS.

    I’ve been busy these days with my sister’s upcoming wedding, new workout routine and work. Omg my work has been nuts lately. Probably because it’s near end of fiscal year (i’m a project manager and our main client is the federal government)

    1. Your sister's wedding looked gorgeous from what you shared on Insta! I hope you had an amazing time!

  5. Oh I love the sweater! I gravitate toward neutral basics, but I like them even more when there's a little extra something special, like those bows. The perfect standard uniform if you ask me :)

    And what kind of program are you doing that you're taking a copy editing class? I am an editor but came to it just by way of English major. I've always been so curious about actual editing/publishing degrees though.

    1. I'm enrolled in a copy editing certificate program, although I keep debating whether or not it's for me. I just enjoy learning, and writing has always been my passion! I should have majored in English :)

  6. The bow detail is sooo pretty!!!

  7. Oh, I feel you on fake it till you make it. Good luck in your class! And omg, that sweater is adorable.


  8. Those bows are so much fun! I love how this pairs with your amazing flats. I bet you did great in school! Wish I could come to the event too!
