Fall Style Hack: Tights under jeans

Don't let fall's chilly days keep you from wearing your distressed jeans. Wearing cute tights under jeans will keep you warm and stylish.

I can no longer deny that fall has arrived. The trees are changing colors. The leaves are falling, littering the ground. And, temps are now dipping into the 40’s. I don’t mind so much because fall in the Midwest is beautiful, but I dread the thought of winter. I was not made for cold weather. […]

Friday Favorites: August Edition

Let's talks about Friday favorites. Here are five things I've been loving this month including a lace dress from Target and a book sure to spark creativity. (Notecards complimentary of Blogging for Books.)
