It’s my five year blogiversary! I can’t believe it’s been this long! I have so enjoyed sharing many milestones with you. A move, a new baby, a fixer upper and all of the ups and downs in between!
While the styles have changed since I first started blogging, my commitment to bringing you affordable, real mom style, sharing in my parenting sagas, showing you updates on my house and in the fixer upper, and whatever crazy project idea I have next has not. Thank you for sticking through with me through long periods of craziness- summers and juggling a new baby with three others, beginning new writing venues, etc.
I love sharing my life with you and I hope to keep my readers stylish- even from the sticks!
After recently celebrating homecoming, it had me in the mood to do another round of “what to wear to my child’s sporting event” for fall sports. I’ve put together a series for all the fall sports I could think of and while some of them are your traditional “school pride” shirt, not all of them are what you would expect.
Try to think outside the box as much as possible. Just because it is a sporting event doesn’t mean you have to scream frump or dress like your mom (unless of course your mother is fashionable).
This outfit is for cross country. And it’s as close to basic as I’m going to go. But for this sport, you might be running across a golf course or a field to see your star runner. So comfy but cute sneakers are a must. These little trainers by New Balance are everywhere this season. They come in lots of different colors too. Who knows what kind of weather you’ll encounter so have on some layers, including something to keep your ears warm.
For another look, stop back tomorrow!
We’ve been getting a bunch of this lately and there might be more in the forecast. Here’s what to wear to stay dry, not be miserable and also not look like a drowned rat! Well, as best as you can anyway…

I’m not going to lie, every time I leave the house in exercise clothes, I feel like I’m leaving in my pajamas. I just feel like I’m half dressed!
This fall, I am helping coach my daughter’s soccer team and I am dressed far more often in athletic clothes than I normally am and I find myself out of my comfort zone. I know that for most of you, this IS your comfort zone!
It has me reevaluating what I have in my closet to coach in.
Here is one outfit that I’ve put together for coaching gear:
The off the shoulder or cold shoulder look isn’t going anywhere. Which is good news for those of us with some in the closet. And these lace up flats are EVERYWHERE! Cute and functional.
I hope there was a look for you in this transitional collection!

Don’t worry about casual Friday, I’ve got a great outfit for you. Wear your jeans and top them with a great black blazer. And to make it a perfect fall outfit, top the blazer with a statement blanket scarf. Don’t forget some sophisticated jewelry and a very “it” bag right now, the bucket bag. Throw in a little fringe bootie just for sass. Great for work!
