City Slicker | Spring Stripes in Zionsville

I love Indy, and I especially love my little neighborhood.  I rarely have a reason to visit the suburbs, and only make the trip when I have to visit a friend or family member who moved away from the city.  Usually I am fine sticking to my city bubble, but on a recent trip to Zionsville I discovered that maybe the burbs aren't so bad!  Don't get me wrong, I'm not packing up and moving away from my little brick oasis!  Here are some of my favorite snaps from my quick trip to Zionsville (and the fabulous Lemon Bar) with Alison from Alison Mae Photography

Spring 2018 | Perfect Yellow Wrap Dress


Nothing gets me more excited for spring than beautiful flowers and warm sunshine.  Recently I got the opportunity to soak in a little bit of both with a new friend, Alison from Alison Mae Photography.  We spent the afternoon enjoying all the colorful plants at Altum's Horticultural Center and snapping pictures of this fabulous wrap dress.   Alison made me feel so at ease, and all of my favorite pictures were the result of her saying "Okay this is going to sound a little crazy but..."  Check out some of her awesome shots!

Good Morning Mama's

You may be able to tell from these photos that my internal record player was spinning Havana by Camila Cabello.  Even though I am smack dab in the middle of a cold Indiana day, I am dreaming of sunshine, warmth and bright colors!

I am loving this double gingham look!  This dress is one of my most favorite purchases ever.  EVER!  I happened to see it poking out of a super clearance rack at Macy's in Cincinnati last summer and it had to be mine.  For $25?  Heck yes!  And these $20 sandals I picked up in Charlotte a few weeks ago pair perfectly.  Be ready to get sick of these sandals y'all, because I am sure they will nearly permanently glue to my feet all summer!

Tell Me About It, Stud

I get giddy over a good deal.  I've never dabbled in drugs, but can anything really compare to the high you get when you score a piece you're really excited about for next to nothing?  If you know the answer to that keep it to yourself, because I don't want to know.  I was able to pick up this skirt on clearance at Forever 21 (I know, I know am I even allowed in there now that I am over 30?) for $3!

Let's Flamin-Go!


Alright you guys, I am feeling like a total broken record this month.  We get brief glimpses of warm weather and sunny skies, so I immediately think I can break out the open toed sandals and ditch the coats.  Not even 18 hours after these pictures were shot a winter storm is dumping out inches of snow right outside.  COME. ON!  I don't want to keep weaving back and forth from winter and spring style!  Make up your mind or else I'll be schlepping through the snow in my sandals just to spite you Mother Nature!

Pink Panther

A bout once a month I head out to some local thrift shops and try and score some inexpensive unique pieces to add to my wardrobe.  I slip earbuds in and listen to my favorite podcasts while I spend a few hours wading through the various racks.  It's so much fun, and a really relaxing way to spend a Saturday morning.  

Recently I scored this vintage pink dress.  It is need of some alterations (shorten, tailor shoulders) before it's a real stunner, but I couldn't resist wearing it already.
