Ruffles and Destroyed Denim

Here we are again with another look with ruffles! I’ve been drawn to them lately, particularly the high neck, ruffle yoke type. I think ruffles on sleeves are lovely (see the last blog post) but not the most practical because they wrinkle easily under coats, and you have to be super careful at dinner lest they take a dip into your spaghetti. Now, ruffles in any other location are perfect to just add a little retro vibe to your otherwise basic winter knit. See below for a few of my picks for knits with ruffles.

I also recently picked up these jeans, which I already own in a different wash. This dark charcoal wash is everything right now, and this one’s a high waist, rigid denim, straight leg, all for under $100. Also, these white pumps were such a random purchase made very long ago, but I’ve worn them more times than I could possibly count and I always get compliments- which leads me to ponder- is white the new black?? I’ve linked to a couple of my picks at different price points for you all – just scroll down.

I wore this over the weekend both days, (because I didn’t get a picture the first time- haha). I squeeze in an outfit picture on the way to the grocery store, the gym, play date – anywhere I can because the days when I could spend hours taking outfit pictures are long gone. Actually I started this blog after Adam was born so I never really had much time to begin with, but it is just even less now with two kids and, might I add, zero nannies. But I’ve learned, kids or not -everyone is busy, and you just have to make time to do the things you want to do, that is a fact.

Thanks so much for stopping by! If no one has told you yet today, I appreciate you, you are beautiful, and…nice butt 😉

Tom’s 50th birthday was all that and a bag of chips! Thanks to our amazing friends and family for making this milestone so special. The cake almost burned the house down with all those candles 😉 but we survived! Happy birthday to my @tom_sandberg! Love you! You didn’t peak in the 90’s you’re still out here getting cuter! ❤️ #birthdayparty #90sparty

Friday mood…
Join me while I gather eggs and check what’s growing in my veggie garden🪴 🐓 Veggie update: Currently my zucchini is slowing down (praise the Lord! 🙏🏾)Tomatoes are slowly but surely ripening, I have a bed of sweet potatoes and yellow onion, and some butternut squash, eggplant, and bell peppers, and one pumpkin so far! Cucumbers had a moment early summer but seem to be done now. I also tried to do grapes but they were a fail. Every year in the garden is an experiment and a learning experience! #veggiegarden #chickencoop
I like big blooms and I cannot lie! 🌸 🥰 #hydrangeas
Ratatouille with a side of air fryer chicken and some crusty bread 🤌🏾 I called it ‘lazy girl’ Ratatouille but ‘busy girl’ would have been more accurate - because you save a lot of time by cooking the eggplant, zucchini, and peppers separately. Easy, fast, and fresh - give it a try! #dinnerideas
5 years old and already way too cool for mommy!
