How To: Clean and Care for Leather Shoes

With ‘Spring Weather’ right around the corner (hopefully) I thought I’d do a post on how to care for your leather shoes, and in particular, boots while they sit idle this summer. Investing in quality leather boots can really save you money in the long run as long as you care for them. They are also much easier to keep looking nice longer because scratches and scrapes can easily be eliminated. I cleaned my boots up for storage last week. And yet, here is Saturday morning’s weather: BEFORE: SUPPLIES: Saddle Soap and Black and Brown Shoe Polish were the items […]

3 Spring Trends that you Probably Already Own

Let’s be honest, this years ‘Spring Trends’ are not all that ground breaking… not that I’m someone that needs to be impressed by the latest fashion phenomenons, but if you have shopped at all in the springtime in the last 5 years, you can probably skip this year because it’s pretty much the same as always… floral prints, pastels, and this year, minimalism- which consists of all things basic, so you probably already have those. Floral I got this floral dress last summer but I think I have at least 2 other floral print dresses that can carry me way […]

On Trend: 70’s Vibes

Hello blog readers! Today I want to share an outfit I’m really loving because it’s got a really cool 70’s vibe. This tunic top is from Hot Commodesty and is currently on sale! The details in the sleeves are so gorgeous and as I’ve mentioned before, I heart Stevie Nicks and I kind of feel like Stevie in this hehehe. These olive dress pants are ‘the limited’ brand via a thrift store a long time ago in a galaxy far far… actually right down the road :) They are the ‘Drew Fit’ style. My bag is a vintage Coach bucket […]

#BramblewoodThrifted Blog Event (Day 2) – My Lazy Weekend Look/The return of the ‘Mom Jean’

YAY! For day #2 of Bramblewood Fashion’s Blog Event – #BramblewoodThrifted! I’m enjoying seeing my fellow bloggers talk about their favorite thrifted pieces and getting a taste of spring with the outfits I’m posting! :-) I’m not going to lie to you. If you type in ‘mom jeans’ on Pinterest, you get a very interesting (and slightly scary), array of women styling mom jeans. Paired with stilettos and crop tops all the way to grandpa cardigans and infinity scarves. I would like to think that my vision for wearing ‘mom jeans’ is HOPEFULLY somewhere sanely between those two extremes, but […]

On Trend (Forever&Always): Channeling Your Inner J.Crew Style

Today I want to talk about the timeless and classic style that is J.Crew. I’ve been crushing on their thrown together yet perfectly polished in every way looks for a while now. J.Crew is known for their timeless pieces, most of which probably already lie within your closet but they have just that little extra oomph that carries it from drab to fab. Every once in a while I feel like I actually nail one of their ‘looks’ but most of the time I think the reality of it is that my style is a little more eclectic than their […]

Hello fashionable ladies! Happy leap day! I hope February treated you well. I’m sure most of you are looking forward to March and spring flowers. I know I am! Today I’m going to share a few ideas on how to style a black midi skirt. I think this is a classic piece that can fit into all women’s wardrobes no matter their style.

The Tough Stuff: Rethinking the Size Complex

This post has taken me a while. It’s been brewing in my mind for some time now, and I’ve struggled on how to dive into this topic, so I’m going to do just that… Dive in. I guess where this post really began was with my recent ‘denim’ mental breakdown. (You probably think I’m writing this from the funny farm right now, but hear me out) After my crazy closet purge (that I still might be suffering from); I’m down from 5 jean skirts and a denim dress to 2 denim skirts. I also got rid of several pairs of jeans […]

The Tough Stuff: Hearts and Hemlines (Part 2)

In my last installment of ‘Hearts and Hemlines‘ I talked about the rising issue of skirts and dresses being super short and worse, being acceptable to many women that I would have considered to be very modest. In this post, I would like to show you how to remedy this situation and rather than break you down, encourage you that you CAN style skirts and dresses stylishly without sacrificing modesty. I will be showing 2 ways to make skirts and dresses that are too short modest. One way, involving very limited sewing knowledge (because that describes my sewing knowledge) and […]
