Mixing Patterns

 Top: Billabong Skirt: DownEast Boots: Steve Madden

As cool as this 30 for 30 has been in terms of me seeing my closet in a whole new light, I am not going to lie and tell you I am getting tired of it and want to post some other items I have in my wardrobe! haha Soon, soon I tell you!

Dear Monday,
You are here again? I swear you come around way too soon for me.

Dear Hand,
YAY you can wash help wash the left hand wash hair now! You can open jars, and food packages without too much pain. You do look like gross snake shedding his skin, but we are getting there :)

Dear Life,
You never cease to amaze me with your curve-balls. Life decisions can be tough, but I am feeling at peace.

Dear Utah,
We were doing so good there for awhile, why did you have to go and start winter on me. Lame.

Dear Kyna,
Thanks for having me guest post today!
Dear Self,
Be patient with the changes you want to make. Things will happen.

Dear Bathtub,
I have missed you all these years.

Dear Readers,
I feel the need to simplify my life, I think this blog as well. More on that later.


  1. Simplify the blog? What on earth could that mean, I'm excited to see changes (although how do you fix something that's already perfect, hehe)!

  2. glad to know your hand is doing better! and yes, Monday always comes way too fast!

  3. super cute!

    You are so right about "Dear Monday"


  4. I am celebrating getting in the December spirit - we bought a mini artificial tree for our hallway last week - and a new tree skirt! SO excited!

  5. I want all of that!!! especially those boots please!!


  6. Love that shirt and boots! so cute :)

  7. I tried to do a 30 by 30 before and couldn't finish because I got too bored (I never blogged about it just did it). I may try again, but only time will tell!

    Isn't it crazy what curve balls life can throw. Decision can be so tough...

  8. So glad to hear your hand is feeling better. It's always nice when you can use both hands to wash your hair lol.

  9. I too love pattern. I'm a sucker for a stripe!

    we aren't suppose to covet right?

  11. cute boots! and i'm glad your hand is feeling better. yea for baths!


  12. can't wait to see how you spruce up the bloggy girl! although i already think it is amazing!
    and those boots are simply fabulous!!

  13. I am always shocked when two totally opposite patterns work so well together. Great job mixing these two. It looks fab!

    Simplify the blog...hmmm...you have peaked me interest. Can't wait to hear what you have in store.

  14. HELLOOOO boots! Love them. My crazy/silly/out of my comfort zone is the topic of my blog post today. It involves monster trucks and a RV Demolition Derby?!?! Yes, way out of my box. ;)

  15. Aw! You look super cute! :)

  16. I love your outfit, it's a fun and unexpected combo!

  17. adorbs. love the mix and match of patterns. you are a bold chika!

  18. I don't know why but I LOVE Mondays. When I had to work full time, not so much. But before that, and now that I am a SAHM, I always feel like that Monday is the day to be motivated and start the week of with a bang :)

    p.s. I'm glad your hand is feeling better!

  19. Nana will be sad when you are done with your 30 for 30. I'm glad your hand is healing and that you now have a bathtub :)

  20. you are so pretty. this outfit works so well together. love it!

  21. LOVING this look!!


  22. fabulous boots. love the contrasting red zipper detail. i give anyone who does the 30 x 30 credit. although i probably only use 30 things in my closet, putting a label on it is just too. much. pressure.

    What's the next line? Help write the story!

  23. I love your outfit... especially those Steve Madden Boots!

    I could use some simplifying in my life too. I read your previous blog post about organizing your life.... and I sometimes feel really overwhelmed with everything I need to do too. It always seems like there's not enough time to do it all.

    If you're going to share some organization tips, I'll be reading. (:

  24. Cuteeeeeeeee! I love this entire outfit! I need a plaid shirt like that, asap. And I have been wanting those boots since I saw them for the first time two years ago! Love it!


  25. Umm your gorgeous and so is this outfit. Lovin' your blog, new follower! :)
