Put a lid on it

  Last weekend we headed to Tuscaloosa for another Alabama football game and while I will never compete with the twenty something at the games I do like to up my game (no pun intended). One of the easiest ways to do that is the hat. Ya’ll know that I love the Janessa Leone, see here and here. But when I saw my friend in Tuscaloosa with her Janessa Leone she suggested that I bring it up again. I never get tired of these hats. The colors, the shapes, the price points. I could go on and on but the point is that hats are fabulous. My next purchase is going to be either this one or this one. Decisions decisions… Here are a few other alternatives as well. xo Martha

Get your motor running…

This past weekend I finally pulled out my fall/winter clothes. I know that we will still have a few more hot days but honestly by this time of year I don’t want to see my legs in shorts.

I’ve hooked you up with a few choices as well as a mood board to show how it transitions from work to play.

it has been said before

this past weekend, i started going through my spring clothes in an effort to fill up another   thred up bag as well as start thinking about what to pack for spring break. plus it gives me an opportunity to see what i need (want)for the new season as i was going through my clothes i came across this. i blogged about it here. what surprised me is how much i’ve seen it this spring. now, don’t get me wrong. i wore my mesh sweater a lot last year. honestly i wore it so much that i ended up buying the white version when it went on sale but i didn’t think it would become a classic like the white blouse that it would return again but what do you know. so the […]
