Happy Valentine's Day! Do you celebrate Valentine's Day, or is it just another typical day for you? I've heard some people say that it is their favorite holiday and to be quite honest I was just like, "Are you kidding me?" I know that everyone is different and is entitled to their own opinion, but personally I wouldn't even consider it a holiday. I just see it as a day to boost the economy. Joe and I will occasionally go out to dinner to celebrate, but other than that we usually don't buy each other gifts. I personally think you should show your love every day and don't think it is necessary to have one day of the year for celebration.

I will say that when I was younger it would be a goal of mine every year to get a boyfriend by Valentine's Day so I could have my name called on the intercom at school to pick up my Valentine. I'm not sure that I ever received one though. I just think that it is kind of funny looking back because I thought of it as such a big deal, but now days I just think Valentine's Day is completely overrated! What are your thoughts?


This shirt that I am wearing today is called "The Perfect Shirt" and I would have to agree. I feel like this is one that could be worn any season and it is great for layering or worn by itself. It comes in seven different color and pattern options. I would love to add another one to my closet. I am wearing an XS for size reference. I love selecting items that I know I will get a lot of wear out of and I think this top definitely fits the bill!


I hope you all have a great Valentine's Day! Thanks for reading!

Hoosier Heartland Home Tour: Entry + Living Room

Hey everyone! I have been doing a little redecorating in our house lately and I wanted to share our entry and living room with all of you today. We have been in our home for nearly ten years and I feel like it has never been fully decorated. I have a bad habit of decorating a little here and there and never fully finishing everything. It is my current goal to finish decorating everything and to try and leave it, instead of doing small sections at a time and then changing the entire look soon after. Ugh, please tell me that I am not alone with this. Ha ha!


I recently added this new hallway runner that I fell in love with immediately. We already had this small entryway table, so I just changed up some of the decor on it. I added a different lamp and replaced a mirror that was hanging above it with this letter board that I moved from another room. I love decorative baskets so I added this one from Target. I decided to store my Hunter boots in it, which freed up some space in my closet. I love this simple look and hopefully it will be something that we will not get tired of too quickly.

I had originally planned to paint our entire house a light grey color, but recently changed my mind because I knew that would probably lead to new living room furniture, etc. I really wanted to change the look of our home with as little cost as possible. I added a new rug and throw pillows in the living room along with a different table lamp and a framed wall canvas. I will also be adding a wall clock above the love seat. I wanted to keep the look simple and went with all neutral colors. I will be adding white curtains to the living room and I ordered these Ribba frames from IKEA to hang on the side wall. So far I am loving the new look and I think Joe approves as well!

Fair Isle Sweater + Ways to Look Put Together With Minimal Effort

Hey everyone! I hope you're all having a great week so far. Today I'm styling this pretty fair isle sweater and the colors have me dreaming of spring! Who else is over the snow and cold temps?

So we all love to look like we took some time to get ready without spending forever actually getting ready, right? Here are some ways to look "put together" with little effort.

Wear a bold lipstick to take attention away from your outfit, hair etc. Remember that you might not want to wear too much other makeup though or it might be overkill.

Add jewelry to make it look like you took extra time getting ready and adding the finishing touches.

Match your shoes with your handbag if possible. It doesn't matter what you wear, but if your accessories coordinate it can make you look like you spent extra time planning out your outfit.

Style your hair instead of just pulling it back. I'm guilty of not doing this one enough. It is so easy to just pull your hair back and go.

Buy clothes that hold up. Good quality clothing really can make a difference! I find that sometimes cheaper materials end up shrinking, getting a hole in them, etc. soon after purchasing them. Spending a little extra money is sometimes worth it in the long run.

Fill in your eyebrows. This helps to define your face and can really make a difference in your appearance.

Take care of your nails. This does not necessarly mean spending a lot of money getting your nails done, but just taking the time to clip and file your nails can make a big difference in your appearance.


I hope you liked my tips today. Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by!

Things I Am Currently Loving

Hey everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I don't know about you, but I am dreaming of Spring! I have started spring cleaning and it feels so good to clean everything out! Today I've rounded up a few of my current favorites for you.

Untitled

Henley Top: I love this basic top that is perfect for layering. I plan to wear it under a denim jacket or a cardigan.


Striped Cardigan: I love this striped cardigan and it is on my wishlist for spring. I feel like this is a piece that I would wear a lot.


Joggers: These look incredibly comfortable and I love the rose color.


Stud Earrings: I have been a long time fan of Kendra Scott's jewelry. These earrings look like the perfect size for a cute and simple everyday earring.


Nike Shoes: I came across these shoes online last week and I thought they were so pretty. I love the color and the velvet along the top.


Drop Earrings: These are a part of Kendra Scott's Spring collection and I think they are gorgeous! The Inez Long Pendant necklace matches these perfectly and is also gorgeous! You can check out the entire Spring Collection here.


Flats: These flats are amazing dupes for a Free People pair that is around $200. This pair is under $40 and comes in six colors!


Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day!
