New layout for the blog!

I updated the layout for the blog this week. I hope you like it. I’ve been meaning to do this all year and finally got around to it. Still trying to figure out a few things here and there, but one thing I’m excited about is my new ‘Shop my Instagram’ tab in the drop down menu on my ‘Shop’ tab. I don’t have a lot of looks in there yet, but I’ll be adding more as I go.

To use the ‘Shop my Instagram’ tab, click on a photo in there and all of the items from that look will appear underneath the photo. Voila! I update items as they sell out, so you can find similar items to create that look.

I hope you all are having a wonderful holiday weekend as we transition from fall into winter. {Yikes!} I’m not looking forward to the cold weather, myself. But, we put up our Christmas tree today, so onward we go toward the next season, ready or not!

In the meantime, I’m enjoying the last of the fall colors… Here are some of my recent photos so you can enjoy them with me.

Cold shoulders in the springtime!

I’m learning there’s some truth to these cold shoulder tops leaving you with actual cold shoulders if it’s not a nice warm day. We are having a particularly cold spring and let me tell ya, my little shoulder was feeling cold the day we took these photos! But, warmer weather is coming! Tomorrow, I hear. And without having had any 70 degree weather, we’re going to jump right into the 80’s for a few days. Cause that’s how we roll in Portland!

I love the little bow detail on the cold shoulder. And the bell sleeves are so in right now! Red is definitely one of my colors, too! There is a bit of shimmer to this top as well, but you can’t really see it in these photos. This top would be perfect for 60 and low 70 degree weather, but not so much if it’s any hotter than that as it’s a sweater. I have another off-shoulder top I keep putting on and taking off for a warmer shirt because it’s been way to cold to have my poor shoulders hanging out this spring. I just can’t bring myself to wear it indoors or outdoors yet because I just want to be warm. I know. I’m a cold weather wimp. I’m okay with that.
