Home Office Update

Sharing My Sole-Minted


I was recently inspired to tackle a mini overhaul of my home office to give it a fresh update. A few years ago I created a fun gallery wall and I really liked it at the time, but recently it just felt too girly and juvenile. I was ready to create a simplified, calming work space. First, I chose a light grey shade and spent an afternoon painting. Truth be told I’ve never painted a room myself before (this is just not my area of expertise… Baking, yes. Painting, no) and with vaulted ceilings it was a bit of a challenge. But I’m proud I was able to take on my first DIY painting project.

Then I selected some neutral artwork from Minted (my favorite!) because I think muted tones are sophisticated and still make a big impact. The best part about ordering artwork from Minted is you can get your favorite pieces delivered and framed, which makes the décor process easy peasy. I loved that I could choose prints that would complement each other and frames that would all go together on one wall. Overall, I’m happy and proud with this updated space and I’m now inspired to move onto other rooms!

Welp, the jig is up. Our 60 degree November weather seems to be gone for good and this weekend I had to break out the coats and boots. On the bright side, bringing out my winter wear always feels like doing a little retail therapy in my own closet. (#free) Luckily I’m heading to Florida this week for Thanksgiving, so I won’t have to deal with the cold for too many days before enjoying some sunshine.

A few favorites from around the web…

There are quite a few cocktail dresses on sale that would be perfect for upcoming holiday parties. Love this fit and flare dress or this little lace shift. Plus this trapeze dress is adorable and I love the lace detail on this dress.

These ankle booties just went on sale and the color is just perfect.

Love these chic flats.

J.Crew has 30-40% off an awesome selection of seasonal pieces. Love this plaid sweater for casual Christmas parties. My favorite boyfriend shirt (seen here) is currently 30% off. Need these bow flannel pajama pants.

Mad About Plaid

Sharing My Sole


Due to this unseasonably warm weather we have been enjoying lately, I seem to have been ignoring my calendar and the fact that Thanksgiving is next week. This dawned on me yesterday when I was going over my schedule for the rest of the year… (How are we already talking about 2016?! I still feel like 2008 was a month ago). Anyway, you know what Thanksgiving means… overindulging in mashed potatoes and then quickly moving into holiday panic mode. Since I am trying (key word: trying) to stay ahead of things this year, I’ve pulled together a little holiday gift guide inspiration. There’s something about a little holiday plaid that gets me so excited for the season and ready to pick out some thoughtful gifts and stocking stuffers. I mean, who can say no to a little plaid for Christmas?


Love this buffalo plaid scarf and these cozy slippers.

Plaid PJ’s are a must.

Everyone needs a fuzzy fleece throw for this winter months.

Fall Style



A few weeks of 60 degree weather in November has been quite a nice surprise. I think this time last year I was already bundled and in snow boots. So I’ll just continue to wear this little fall uniform until I see flurries.

Bloggers Who Budget: Holiday Style For Less

Sharing My Sole


We’re quickly approaching holiday party season, so this month the Bloggers Who Budget ladies are bringing you our holiday style looks for less.  I call this easy look my festive cocktail hour attire.  I would easily wear this oversized sweater dress (which I snagged for $45 ) to a little happy hour with my co-workers.

I’ve also recently starting using Lyst for a little holiday outfit inspiration and of course to get alerts when some of my favorite pieces go on sale.  (win win). Lyst is easy peasy to use and fun to create your own Lysts to help plan outfits.  The more you use the platform, the more it learns about your likes and dislikes, so you start to only see things you love.  And want.  Hello holiday shopping helper.

Hello Friday. This weekend is one of those rarity’s where I really don’t have any set plans and it couldn’t have come at a better time. I plan on holding up at home and trying out a few new recipes and working on a home décor project. Spending a weekend in sweatpants with a messy bun sounds like perfection. Hope yours is wonderful!




A few favorites from around the web…

This is the last weekend for Nordstrom’s Fall Clearance Sale and I’ve been stalking the shoe section almost daily (ahem, hourly) deciding on a purchase or two. Love these riding boots and these open-toe booties.

I might need these suede ankle boots.

Plus my favorite Superga sneaks are on sale. I have them in navy and love ‘em.

J.Crew released new arrivals this week and let me tell you they are good. You can snag 25% off your purchase with code SHOPTOIT. Love this cozy sweater cardigan and this lace cap-sleeve dress for holiday parties.

Their new jewelry collection is on point. Need these earrings and I’m semi-obsessed with this feather collar necklace.

And I love the Carrie cami, so I’d say the lace version is pretty much holiday perfection.

I’ve been perusing the West Elm holiday décor and getting some fun ideas to spruce up my fireplace mantel. Love these mirrored stars and this adorable Cheers sign.

In The Trenches

Trench Coat


I think owning a classic trench coat is some sort of rite of passage into adulthood.  Back in my college days I wouldn’t have dreamed of wearing such a classic wardrobe staple on those weekend nights out…  Instead I was throwing on my fleece zip-up jacket over a strategically selected tank top and jeans ensemble.  (That’s a story for another day, but I think we all wore some form of jeans and a tank top every.single.weekend).  Now that I’m a proper 29-year-old, it’s necessary that a trench coat is a part of my wardrobe rotation.  And it’s nice because a trench never really goes out of style.

Speaking of classic wardrobe pieces, this sweater dress is definitely a keeper.  I’m fairly certain I’ve expressed my love for sweater dresses multiple times before, but I love a simple sweater dress and boots for the office.
