Happy Halloween, Y'all!

Happy Halloween! I've always liked Halloween, probably because it's the first holiday I can remember. I like the crispness in the air, the abundance of Reese's peanut butter cups, and getting together with friends in costume.

In keeping with the nautical theme of our lives, my Darling Husband and I will be dressing as Captain {him} and Sailor {her}. Enjoy the holiday! Eat candy, put on a fun costume, spend time with friends and/or family, and be safe!

Throwback Thursday

Today's installment of Throwback Thursday is brought to you by lovely Frankenmuth, Michigan {home of Bronner's, the world's largest Christmas store. My first visit to this cheery place was a bit cold and very fun. My Darling Husband and I picked up ornaments for our home {and a few for friends and family} and took in the Christmas scenery.

Pet Peeve

One of my pet peeves is when people do not properly place their shopping carts in the designated shopping cart corral at the grocery store. I'm the weirdo that spends 2 minutes fixing all of the carts so they're lined up after I shove mine {in line with its friends} into the corral. I loathe those people who stand close {but not close enough} to said corral, give their cart a big push, and hope for the best. Just put it back properly!

Legging Lineup

I'm a big fan of the legging trend... mostly because it's like wearing sweats all day. Here are my favorite leggings:
{Lysse ponte seam leggings have a nice, subtle tummy control top. $72}

{BCBG mason legging. These were my very first pair and I refuse to part with them. $128)

{Lilly Pulitzer Travel Pant. They have a great little seam/pleat down the center that makes them look more pant-like. $98}

Now, as much as I love leggings, I can't get on board with wearing them like they're normal pants. When I'm rocking a pair of leggings, I have to have my tushy covered! I like to opt for a long sweater or a boyfriend-style cardigan. 

{This Kerisma Knits sweater is a great, easy option.}

{So is this peplum cardigan by Renee C.}

It's Been a While!

It's been a while, but I'm back!! Allow me to fill you in on what's been happening these last few months….

I got married! My Darling Husband and I moved! We both started new jobs {well, for me it's the same job in a different place, pretty much}! 

{I like to wear my wedding veil over a glass of wine sometimes. 
I mean, that thing was expensive, so I'm going to get mileage out of it!}

We've been in our new home for about 5 months and so far, so good. We love the location; we live in a little faux-downtown that's just a few minutes from the lake. We have been spending lots of time on the water. My Darling Husband has been teaching me to sail. I'm still quite green, have my moments of frustration and panic, but am loving it! 

{Pardon my finger over the camera, but that's been my view the past few weekends}
