What I Wore — January 21-26


Brrrrrr. It was *bitterly* cold here this past week, temps didn’t reach single digits until Saturday! It’s pretty tough to bundle up and stay warm while still trying to look cute! I can’t wait for summer weather :)

I wore the outfit below to dinner with one of my good friends…looking back, I wish I had worn boots, my poor feet were so cold! I don’t often rock a topknot, but I managed to get it half way decent :)

*Sweater, Gap. Tee, VS Pink. Jeans, Gap. Shoes, Target*
I adore this outfit below. Warm, comfy and still stylish for a work trade show and then dinner at the Capital Grill! Yummy :) 

*Blazer, H&M. Leopard sweater, Forever 21. Corduroy skinnies, the Loft. Boots, Steve Madden* 
I love love love colored skinnies, and I am so excited that they are everywhere this year in every color of the rainbow, and then some! I bought these almost 2 years ago, and find them to be super versatile even though they are a bright red! The monogram necklace was a gift from my hubby on our wedding day <3
*Cashmere sweater, gift from my mother-in-law, JCP. White tee, Target. Red skinnies, Old Navy. Boots, Steve Madden. Necklace, Etsy*
I wore this outfit to dinner to meet some of my fellow September 2012 brides. We all “met” while planning our weddings on The Knot, and created a Facebook group to better help each other plan our big days. Nearly 5 months after our weddings, we still chat daily! I love these girls!

So there you have it! Stay tuned for more looks coming soon! XOXO

Why I’m Here!

Hey there…I’m G! Welcome to my blog :) I’ve wanted to write my own blog for a really long time….I love to write and one of my favorite ways to learn about the world and other people, is through reading blogs. I’m amazed at the things that I’ve learned about love, life and loss from reading people’s stories.
I’m so excited to share my journey here…..I can’t help but feel so grateful for the people who have helped (and continue to help me!) and I hope that I can “pay it forward” here.  I have been blessed with an amazing life and though I’ve faced my share of challenges, I’m still here and stronger than ever.
I’ll be sharing recipes, menus, shopping tips and fashion looks along with some DIY decorating tips. My husband and I are searching for our dream home and I’m excited to chronicle all the ups and downs as we get there! I was recently diagnosed with a gluten-sensitivity and will be sharing recipes, and the challenges of adjusting to this new lifestyle.
So! Stick around, this is going to be fun!
