What’s New!

What’s New!

What is new with me lately? Hmmm.

Well, for one: I’m exhausted.

If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’d know that I’m a gal who really enjoys a calm, quiet life. I don’t crave constant busyness; I don’t thrive on pressure, or packed schedules, or racing here-to-there.

I derive no pleasure from commitment overload.

In fact, I kind of embrace ordinary, and I’m quite content when things are

status quo.

But these last two weeks …

boy, oh boy, how we’ve been movin’ and shakin’ and lovin’ it!

The Boy and I traveled down to DC two weekends back to visit The Man, who’s been spending a lot of time in The District overseeing a new project. We did a few tourist-y things {enough already with the Bug Room at the Museum of Natural History … oy!}, and a few not-so-tourist-y things {like walking through Old Town, Virginia}, and generally just enjoyed hanging out together at The Man’s home away from home.

We arrived Friday night. We left Monday morning.

And back home, no sooner had I finished with the laundry from that little excursion, it was time for me to ready myself for my own little private getaway: Stella & Dot’s National Sales Conference — HOOPLA! — at Marriott’s World Center Resort in Orlando.

I’m quite certain that even if you had nothing to do with this company or its gorgeous baubles, you’d say the weekend was worth every penny, considering the inspiration offered by those speaking, including our founder, Jessica Herrin, who, before turning Stella & Dot into an industry powerhouse, co-founded, by the ripe old age of 24, a little place on the inter webs called WeddingChannel.com.

Girl knew a few things about perseverance, determination, and gettin’ the job done.

Anyway, I’m back now and happy to have had those experiences, and I’m readying myself {personally} for the rest of the summer with The Boy, upcoming baby and wedding showers, days at the beach, hopefully an amusement park outing with friends, and enjoying the gorgeous pieces I just bought from Stella & Dot’s new fall line and {professionally} getting the word out about those beauties.

To celebrate the launch, and to send my now-retired pieces out in style, I’m running a sample sale AND a raffle. I’ve reduced the pricing on the following pieces, which {for the most part … the only exception is the tote} are now considered “Vintage Stella.” Scoop ’em up fast, ladies: I’ve already said my goodbyes and am ready to let them go. When you see something you like, just email me and we’ll take care of the details. First-come, first-served.

Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday : A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

Whatchoo-Wish-You-Were-Wearin’ Wednesday : A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood

I’m not really a sweatpants girl.

On any ordinary day in the neighborhood, I like looking a little dressed up: not Easter Sunday dressed up, of course, but as polished as I can swing it.

The outfit is generally my favorite dark Paige jeans {they’re so comfortable!} and a pretty top, like this one …

Just A Typical Wednesday
VPL long sleeve top / Paige Denim boot cut jeans / L.K.Bennett flat shoes / Cynthia Rowley silver ring / philosophy perfume

And look at those shoes! I always seem to find the most expensive pair on Polyvore, but I hope you know that I would never pay that sort of money on shoes. Or, well, anything. And we don’t need to really, not with stores like Target and Payless out there. My favorite ballet slippers are an emerald-green pair from Target, and they cost me $12.

Hey, speaking of Tar-jay, have YOU entered the Valentine’s Day Giveaway Event yet? The winner will receive a $90 Target gift card! I could think of a million ways to spend that, and I bet you could too, so show yourself a little love

… and go enter!
