Hello, my name is Theresa and I’m a stay at home mama, crafter, wanna be chef, and lover of everything pink and bright. Read More
I enjoyed a weekend of rest. A weekend spent with an early morning hike, reading The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (which I’ve almost finished and highly recommend), and serving and loving my best friend.
This week take a moment to rest. Notice the small, but wonderful details in life (such as a salamander).
How do you rest?
I want to congratulate Gina on winning the giveaway for this box!
This box came in the mail on Monday and could not have had better timing.
I love the colorful packing any Darby Smart purchase comes in (see Instagram for my preview to today’s post).
Happy Wardrobe Wednesday, readers!
It is no secret that I absolutely love sunshine. Since I’ve lived in the Willamette Valley in Oregon almost two years I’ve embraced the fact that sunshine is rare. I’ve decided that rain and not much sunshine is way better than a Midwest winter with sunshine.
On rainy days I’m automatically picking a bright color to accent my outfit for the day. Brighter colors, brighten moods right?
Wearing bright colors and using a Happy Light is one key to brightening the day. If you’ve never heard of a Happy Light it emulates natural daylight and has been by far one of my two best purchases since moving to Oregon.
My other best purchase was a North Face Rain Jacket, which I put on right after this photo was taken to leave the house.
What’s your favorite rainy day outfit, readers?
When I was thinking about the life of my wardrobe, I realized how strange and diverse it has been. I have owned everything from a short, cropped MC hammer-esque bomber jacket, to a floor length black lace dress. In one day, I might go from a business casual skirt and blouse to a sweatshirt of wolves howling at the moon and leggings. I’d absolutely love to say this does not describe my personality. I’d love to say it’s just some sort of fluke that my wardrobe is high on variance and lacking continuity. However, nothing suits me more than having a closet full of seemingly random things simply because I love them. Read More
There was a time when at least 2,000 words a day would dance across my keyboard. I wrote incessantly. I don’t anymore. I’m working on getting back into writing. In the mean time here is one thing that I noticed yesterday morning when this whole ponderation came crashing down: I don’t notice life as much.
What do I mean? Here is a sampling of what I used to write:
Happy Thursday, Readers!
Today I’m excited to share a DIY Chair Rehab adventure with you. My friend Amanda asked me a couple weeks ago to assist her with this project and I was quite excited to help. Our schedules finally aligned and our dear friend Jenna’s did too. On Saturday Jenna and I went over to Amanda’s house for an amazing breakfast and to start operation DIY Chair Rehab.
Happy Wardrobe Wednesday, readers!
The Lean In movement has given women all over the world a sense of empowerment. But where is that empowerment coming from? Are you trying to do it on your own or are you asking God to help you be confident?
Being confident and believing in your own self-worth is necessary to achieving your potential. -Lean In
A couple weeks ago Elizabeth of Oak and Oats and Jenny of Jenny Highsmith Lettering had a contest for a print and I won! I was ecstatic to find a print that related to self-confidence and fashion, which I’ve thankfully been regaining.
Thank you so much for this opportunity to share my style with you lovely readers! My name is Lisa Loperfido, and I am a happy-go-lucky girl enjoying God’s many blessings one day at a time. My favorite moments in personal fashion are always when I go on trips, because I get to step out of the office and play dress up, even if just for a little while. Recently I took a trip to New York (read all about it!) and decided to give myself a challenge: 5 days in the big city with just 1 carry on! The challenge worked out so well, the solution was to only pack pieces that paired well together that were also stylish and comfortable. I lasted all 5 days and never felt a bit out of place!
