Olive You

The downside of this winter in Chicago is the freezing temperatures and the constant precipitation.  It seems that every other day is a massive snowfall and many trips outdoors are treacherous for driving.  But the upside is that almost every other day is an opportunity to get some great outfit photos in some freshly

Wardrobe Woes

My favorite fringy jacket that I love so much, and my favorite victorian style blouse.

For today's post I wanted to address something I've been feeling for a while now.  It's centered around how I feel about my own wardrobe and the items in my closet, and possibly others out there may feel this as well.  There is some differing and conflicting opinions out there as to how we go about building a wardrobe.  If you buy "too much" you could be seen as frivolous, even if you buy all of it at a bargain, or conversely if you

Bathroom Reveal


Hey there lovelies!!!

Boy has this one been a long time coming.  Not only do I feel like it's really been far too long of a timeline on sharing our house updates with you guys, but this one feels like it has been years in the making.  Back in 2016 I posted a before post that featured a before picture of the bathroom at our old apartment, and a mood board for what I planned to do with it design wise...

Freezing in the Midwest

It's a cold Midwest out there as of late.  It's such a strange experience visiting the beach during this time of year.  Most people don't think of taking a trip to the beach during the colder months, but I love it because it completely transforms into a very different place.  The crunch of frozen sand mixed with ice is a odd

Wandering in Winter

I wanted to take today's space on the blog to give a bit of quiet — on the mornings we walk a lot of the time I'm in awe of the simple beauty of nature and the seasons shifting.  I wanted to share with you today some of the natural beauty I've been enjoying while we've been wandering in winter.

It's Uphill for Oddities


I feel like I've always marched to the rhythm of my own drum.   I've never wanted to be the 'mainstream' or the status quo, I've always just strived to do what felt 'right' regardless of if it was the road less traveled or

Fondue Date

If you're looking for a great little tradition to start this Valentine's, fondue is a great way to go.  Andrew and I usually make fondue as a tradition for New Year's Eve, but it would also work great for a Valentine's date night with your significant other, or a great Galentine's get together with your gal pals!

Reverie in Blue

We're having quite the seasonal shift here in the midwest — one day it's 30 degrees subzero with piles of snow topping a foot high, and the next it's 42 degrees and melting away.  On the day of this shoot it was the

Valentine's Home Decor


This time of year is always a little bit of limbo in the home.  We recently had some family over for dinner and I realized: A. that I needed to take down the Christmas tree, and B. I didn't know how to decorate the house.  After the decor explosion that is Christmas, it seems like you take everything down and suddenly
