Olive and Peach

The crop top obsession continues…I love pairing a loose crop with a fitted pencil skirt- the juxtaposition is elegant and unfussy. Pretty much exactly how I want to look all the time. This top from Zara is one of my favorite pieces for Summer that I will be layering for fall. It is a leather, zip back crop top – in a dark olive green. 
On another note, these days working less and spending more time with Adam have actually made me even busier than ever before, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. I really believe you can do a day’s worth of work in half the time if you cut out the water cooler chats and other time sucks out of your office work day. I now have the time to do an entire day’s worth of work, AND cook and eat dinner with the hubs, water my plants, and spend afternoons with my sweet Adam. 
I feel like life before was just a series of events we were racing to attend, all the while never getting a chance to truly enjoy what we had. If more companies would just get with the program and offer flexible schedules, so many moms could improve their work life balance by a thousand percent, and probably be so much more productive as a result. Face time is overhyped – the tech sector seems to get this concept but other companies still seem to hold on to their old school ways. Hopefully it is going to be a real thing for everyone in the very near future…it is inevitable right?

Btw, I’ve updated my Outfits section on the blog so definitely hit that tab for a shortcut to my recent looks!

Also, don’t forget to check out my picks for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

Hope you have a great week!

There are some trees with seeds that only grow after a fire. Their seeds are completely sealed with a resin that have to be physically melted off by a great fire in order to propagate. So to do we as humans, gain wisdom only after great pain and suffering.*
A month ago (and one day) I lost my sister and best friend to cancer. I am still completely gutted and broken. But, I’m also so so grateful to have had felt the love that now brings me so much heartbreak. ❤️ I am so inspired by her - and I will forever live my life to honor her memory. Miss you sis ❤️

French. Toast. Egg. Bake. Save this recipe for a weekend or holiday brunch - it’s SO good and fool-proof! I’m not even a sweet person and I love it. The pecans are a non-negotiable IMO - I get honey bourbon vanilla pecans for this and it is just heavenly. Enjoy!

Peak Autumn beauty 🍂 These two pictures were taken only 10 days apart ~ look how much the color has changed! I love to go for a walk and admire all the gorgeous foliage - so much fun. This side of my house is officially my favorite: a mix of shrubs including hydrangea, blue spruce, beautyberry, euonymus, pine, boxwood, burning bush, viburnum, smokebush, and you can even see the Japanese maple peeking out from the backyard 🍂#fallfoliage #autumn
