If you’re like me, you desperately want to dress like it’s spring right now but you also don’t want to freeze. 🙃 Here are my go-to products that provide warmth… and that when paired together, make for some very springy outfits!
As I’ve grown older, I’ve definitely toned things down and reserved personalization for a select few things, but it’s no secret that I’ve always loved a good monogram. ;) Here are my favorite products that seem to stand the test of time:
Back in October, I was the photographer for my brother- and sister-in-law’s wedding on their farm, and today I’m sharing some of my favorite photos from the day!
Aaaaaand we’re back!
I haven’t been taking a lot of photos lately because March in Chicago is gross, haha. Here’s some randomness I snapped with my phone over the last week or so, though. 🙃 (I used to do a series like this and have been thinking about bringing it back!)
And these are my thoughts on a few songs that hold significance for me:
A few things to add to regularly scheduled content this morning:
Bread is not healthy. That’s why it tastes so good. So to stay healthy, I chop my bread up into little pieces, soak it in oil, toast it, cover it in dressing, and then eat it in a salad. That’s how I keep my shapely form.
So we have some big news! We’re driving to Mississippi for Emma’s spring break. We are in desperate need of some sunshine, warmth and fresh air—and while I’m not exactly looking forward to a 14.5-hour car ride with two kids under the age of five, we’ve done it before and can do it again!
I had a lot of fun putting together this recent blog post on mudrooms. Taking 15-20 minutes to scroll through Pinterest gives me all the inspiration, motivation and relaxation vibes, haha. So I’m back with another roundup!
Now that we had our runner replaced with Rouzati Rugs, I’ve really enjoyed thinking about staircase finishing touches. I’ll say that this is several years out; the mudroom is 100-percent next on our list because of functionality reasons. But that gives me lots of time to decide on what’ll look best in our home!

Switching gears, here’s how we decorated our home for Saint Patrick’s Day this year. :) Just a few little things here or there, but I definitely feel in the spirit as a result!
YAY Easter! Hahaha. I fully admit to succumbing to pandemic holiday psychosis. But hey: This is far more legit than my recent Saint Patrick’s Day obsession, no?

How are you?
A version of this appeared on my Instagram account last week, but I thought I’d share on the blog as well. I think I’ve probably hit the pandemic wall over here. I’m not depressed; While I’m unfortunately no stranger to depression, I’ve thankfully been able to ward off any serious bouts over the last year. ☀️ There’s a lot of joy and laughter in my everyday life! I’m lucky and grateful. But I also feel so…
Our next big home project will likely be our tiny mudroom. (Sometime in the next year, hopefully!) It’s a very small space, and the girls often fall when in there because it lacks any sort of functionality, haha.
Here’s what we’re thinking!
J.Crew Roll Neck Sweater / Burberry Scarf (Perfect for spring! Here’s the classic.) / Hunter Insulated Boots available via Zappos, Hunterboots.com and Free People in black, too! / Girls’ Rainbow Dresses (So cozy. Short-sleeved here. And omg the bunny print!

Hers are hand-me-downs.) / Emma’s Vineyard Vines Masks / Mitch’s Vineyard Vines Pullover / Mitch’s Waterproof Boots
WE WENT OUT!
Just a little heads up that one of. my all-time favorite articles of clothing—the Madewell Herringbone Coat—is back in sweater coat form, and on major sale.
I’m so proud of this find! While searching for citrus sweaters—for an upcoming campaign, don’t ask 😆—I discovered Spool No. 72. And let me tell you: the sweaters are ridiculously soft and cozy, just as advertised! And the prices?! Wow.
