Life is Better in these Pajamas

During all of the moving craziness, I started to feel a bit overwhelmed. My entire life was in boxes, I couldn’t find anything, I kept tripping over things because they weren’t where they belong and because of that I was being really hard on myself. Things had to get done, my to do list was forever growing and we needed a lot more than I thought we did for the new home. On one of our trips to Target picking up a few essentials, we walked by the pajama section and these pajamas caught my eye. When I touched them and realized how soft they were, I immediately was like oh my gosh I need these! Seems silly, but I was so excited to go to bed that night with pajamas that matched and were soft!


Life is messy and unpredictable. It’s not easy and sometimes the easy things are more difficult because of unforeseeable bumps in the road. During the move, I was so tired and so critical of myself because no matter how I planned, I could not get everything done in my timeline. Sometimes we need a reminder to take some time for ourselves. To treat ourselves to a cozy blanket or just new soft pajamas. It actually took me over a week to find and then unpack my box filled with pajamas so it was so nice to actually have a set of pajamas during all of the chaos. I swear I washed the pajamas frequently and they were just as soft as when I first bought them!

Here are some things that helped me stay sane during the move….

  • Cozy pajamas duhh! Super soft and the price was right!
  • Taking a long shower. There were a lot of late nights and I would feel so gross. I cannot even begin to explain how much better I felt after taking a shower and having some time to myself.
  • A made bed. Okay, seems silly that with everything else going on that I kept the bed made but it was nice to have something inviting at night when I was ready to collapse and fall asleep.
  • Keeping the bedroom neat. The rest of the house was a disaster but I made Jake and I keep the bedroom clutter free as much as we could. I can’t sleep being surrounded by a mess so it was a nice escape during the of boxes.
  • Unpack the kitchen first. It’s usually the easiest room to unpack and it’s nice to say that at least one room is in order while you unpack the rest!


The Shoes I Can’t Stop Wearing This Summer

Stuart Weitzman cork heel (a Marshall’s find)// Under $60 Cork Heel

Lately, I have been on the hunt to find a neutral pair of shoes that I can wear with a lot of my outfits and can be worn from work to date night. My usual go to shoe has been the same 4 pairs of flats that I wear all the time to work. I got bored of the same shoes over and over again and wanted to get a neutral heel for when I have meetings and need to get dressed up. On a recent shopping trip, I found these cork heels from Stuart Weitzman and I love finding excuses to wear them. I’ve already worn them to a graduation, a fancy date night and wore them with white jeans to dress up an outfit. I found a pretty alternative cork heel at DSW that are under $60. These shoes really do go with everything and make a statement even if I am just wearing white jeans!

Comfortable Work Shoes at DSW

marc fisher caitlin pumps

New job means new shoes right? After a few weeks at my new job I’ve been wanting to get new shoes that I can wear to work. Of course they have to look cute but they also have to comfortable while I run around at work all day. Seriously, my Fitbit tracks close to 10,000 steps a day because I am always on the move. I wanted to get a heel that wouldn’t make my feet hurt after 20 minutes of wearing them. Luckily I found a pair of the Caitlin pumps by Marc Fisher. A part of me bought them because they were pink (duhh) but also because they have a blocked heel. After wearing them for a few days I can say that that these are the most comfortable shoes I own! I’ll be heading back to DSW shortly to pick up a few more pairs of these in different colors because the price point is also amazing! Like the saying goes, if the shoe fits (and is comfortable), buy it in every color!

shoes for the summer

After months of wearing the same black booties to work, I am so excited to start wearing my cute flats and sandals to work again! A while ago, I made a commitment to keep my shoe collection small and only purchase shoes that will last and be worn frequently. I’ve put together some of my favorite shoes that I wear constantly during the warmer months. Some are a splurge and others are super affordable. Below are some of my favorite shoes that I wear the most during the summer.

Gingham Work Wear

pink gingham pants

I am keeping this gingham theme going in today’s blog post. With the warmer temperatures, I have been excited to wear more color to the office and these pants have quickly become a favorite. My usual go to outfit for work is a pair of pixie pants from Old Navy so I was excited to pick up this new pattern. Now I wear these pink gingham pants at least once a week because they are so comfy and I can wear them with any top. The pants have a stretch material so they are comfortable so they can be worn all day without feeling uncomfortable which is a big must for me. They can easily be worn with my go to flats or with heels depending on how much walking around the office I plan on doing that day ha! ALSO exciting news – these pants just went to clearance so scoop them up on sale while you can!

memorial day weekend sales guide

I am sooo excited for a three day weekend! They don’t come often so I hope to get as much relaxation, fun and time in the sun in as I can. We had an early dismissal at work on Friday so I made plans to meet up with a friend for a late lunch and to do some shopping in Rittenhouse. After not being in the retail world for a while, I kinda forgot how amazing Memorial Day Weekend sales are. Since I was out shopping with a friend, I didn’t get that much time to browse at everything on sale. Now I’m curled up on my couch in my jammies working on my laptop browsing online doing my research to find all the sales. A lot of my favorite recent purchases are included in this sale and I would definitely recommend taking advantage of this sale if there is anything you had your eyes on lately.
